95% of IT leaders are concerned by the insider threat.
People are the lifeblood of almost every organisation - but there's no denying they're also one its biggest risks. Employees’ autonomy makes it difficult for IT leaders to anticipate their behaviour to prevent data breaches – whether that’s someone acting maliciously to harm the company, trying to cover up or play down an error, or taking shortcuts to get their job done. What's more, it can be difficult for organisations to prevent these scenarios from playing out again in future.
Join industry thought leaders and the Egress Team, as we question why people cause data breaches, examine the behaviour profiles of internal actors and look at the compliance consequences from an insider data breach.

Lisa Forte, Social Engineering and Cybersecurity Expert
Why do people cause data breaches?
Lisa Forte began her career working in anti-piracy intelligence off the coast of Somalia, before moving into counter-terrorism intelligence for a UK Government agency. She then moved into one of the UK Police Cyber-Crime Units where she got to know the attackers’ mind sets and methodologies well. The unit dealt with serious cyber crime cases working closely with agencies such as the FBI. Victim companies ranged from small to multi-national organisations and almost all the cases involved social engineering.
Lisa left in 2017 to start her own company, Red Goat Cyber Security LLP, with the goal of reflecting the techniques and methodologies actually being employed by hackers. They provide the only GCHQ certified social engineering training in the UK for staff as well as social engineering security testing and wargaming cyber attack exercises to help organisations prepare for an attack. In December 2018 Lisa won the “Top 100 Women In Tech” Awards recognising her achievements and contributions to the cyber security industry.
