Book Description :

CERT's definitive, up-to-the-minute guide to insider threats: recognizing them, preventing them, detecting them, and mitigating them • •The only 'insider threat' guide from CERT, the world's leading information security experts: based on CERT's uniquely comprehensive collection of malicious insider incidents. •Presents practical strategies for assessing and managing insider risks associated with technology, organization, personnel, business, and process. •Exceptionally timely: indispensable for the 'Era of Wikileaks' Wikileaks recent data exposures demonstrate the danger now posed by insiders, who can often bypass physical and technical security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access. Insiders are already familiar with their organizations' policies, procedures, and technologies, and can often identify vulnerabilities more effectively than outside 'hackers.' Most IT security mechanisms are implemented primarily to defend against external threats, leaving potentially enormous vulnerabilities exposed. Now, the insider threat team at CERT, the world's leading information security experts, helps readers systematically identify, prevent, detect, and mitigate threats arising from inside the organization. Drawing on their advanced research with the US Secret Service and Department of Defense, as well as the world's largest database of insider attacks, the authors systematically address four key types of insider 'cybercrime': national security espionage, IT sabotage, theft of intellectual property, and fraud. For each, they present an up-to-date crime profile: who typically commits these crimes (and why); relevant organizational issues; methods of attack, impacts, and precursors that could have warned the organization in advance. In addition to describing patterns that readers can use in their own organizations, the authors offer today's most effective psychological, technical, organizational, cultural, and process-based countermeasures.

Book Description :

In the eighth action-packed thriller in the New York Times bestselling Pike Logan series, ISIS, the most maniacal terrorist organization the modern world has ever seen, is poised to make their most audacious strike yet. The United States has anticipated and averted countless attacks from terrorist groups—thanks in large part to the extralegal counterterrorist unit known as the Taskforce. But now, a much more insidious evil is about to shatter the false sense of safety surrounding civilized nations. While world powers combat ISIS on the battlefield, a different threat is set in motion by the group—one that can’t be defeated by an airstrike. Off the radar of every Western intelligence organization, able to penetrate America or any European state, they intend to commit an act of unimaginable barbarity. Only Pike Logan and the Taskforce stand in the way of an attack no one anticipates, a grand deception that will wreak unthinkable chaos and reverberate throughout the Western world.

Book Description :

An adversary who attacks an organization from within can prove fatal to the organization and is generally impervious to conventional defenses. Drawn from the findings of an award-winning thesis, Managing the Insider Threat: No Dark Corners is the first comprehensive resource to use social science research to explain why traditional methods fail against these trust betrayers. In this groundbreaking book, author Nick Catrantzos identifies new management, security, and workplace strategies for categorizing and defeating insider threats. The book begins with problem definition and research findings that lead to the "No Dark Corners" strategy for addressing insider threats. With these foundational underpinnings, the book then examines agents of change within the workplace-namely, key players in positions to effectively support or undermine the No Dark Corners strategy, including corporate sentinels and leaders affecting application of this approach. From there, the author goes on to examine key areas where No Dark Corners-style engagement can make a difference in the way an institution counters insider threats-through rethinking background investigations, recognizing deception, and using lawful disruption. Moving progressively from the theoretical to the practical in applying the strategy within an organizational framework, the book looks at implementation challenges and offers a framework for introducing new insider defense insights into an organization. Each chapter offers questions to stimulate discussion and exercises or problems suitable for team projects. This practical resource enables those charged with protecting an organization from internal threats to circumvent these predators before they jeopardize the workplace and sabotage business operations.

Book Description :

Data Loss Prevention is easier and cheaper than cure - the insider threat poses a significant and increasing problem for organisations. The use of highly connected computers makes controlling information much more difficult than in the past. This new pocket guide intends to shed light on the key security issues facing organisations from insiders to get them up to speed quickly. It is written by Clive Blackwell who is a researcher at Royal Holloway, University of London, where his main field is security architecture. He has developed a practical three-layer security architecture to model computer networks such as the Internet and other complex systems such as critical infrastructure. He is currently applying the model to the insider threat within different business sectors, which has resulted in several academic papers. Clive is a regular speaker on security at both academic and business conferences in the US and Europe as well as the UK. He has recently been invited to give talks on the insider threat at two major business conferences. He has about 20 publications to his name within the last two years, so he is aware of the security issues facing business.

Book Description :

Every type of organization is vulnerable to insider abuse, errors, and malicious attacks: Grant anyone access to a system and you automatically introduce a vulnerability. Insiders can be current or former employees, contractors, or other business partners who have been granted authorized access to networks, systems, or data, and all of them can bypass security measures through legitimate means. Insider Threat – A Guide to Understanding, Detecting, and Defending Against the Enemy from Within shows how a security culture based on international best practice can help mitigate the insider threat, providing short-term quick fixes and long-term solutions that can be applied as part of an effective insider threat program. Read this book to learn the seven organizational characteristics common to insider threat victims; the ten stages of a malicious attack; the ten steps of a successful insider threat program; and the construction of a three-tier security culture, encompassing artefacts, values, and shared assumptions. Perhaps most importantly, it also sets out what not to do, listing a set of worst practices that should be avoided. About the author Dr Julie Mehan is the founder and president of JEMStone Strategies and a principal in a strategic consulting firm in Virginia. She has delivered cybersecurity and related privacy services to senior commercial, Department of Defense, and federal government clients.

Book Description :

Cyber security experts agree that insider threats are and will continue to be a threat to every organization. These threats come from trusted co-workers who, for one reason or another, betray their organizations and steal data, disrupt information systems, or corrupt the data. Millennials are commonly thought of as entitled, high maintenance, and less trustworthy than the older generations; in other words, they have personality traits associated with insider threats, making the insider threat and the Millennial a dangerous combination. But are the Millennials truly any more likely to become insider threats than members Generation X (GenX) or Baby Boomers? This study shows that, contrary to conventional wisdom and societal belief, Millennials are no more likely to become insider threats than other generations; in fact, data shows they are less likely to do so than members of GenX.

Book Description :

Research reactors are required (in accordance with the Safeguards Agreement between the State and the IAEA) to maintain a system of nuclear material accounting and control for reporting quantities of nuclear material received, shipped, and held on inventory. Enhancements to the existing accounting and control system can be made at little additional cost to the facility, and these enhancements can make nuclear material accounting and control useful for nuclear security. In particular, nuclear material accounting and control measures can be useful in protecting against an insider who is intent on unauthorized removal or misuse of nuclear material or misuse of equipment. An enhanced nuclear material accounting and control system that responds to nuclear security is described in NSS-25G, Use of Nuclear Material Accounting and Control for Nuclear Security Purposes at Facilities, which is scheduled for distribution by the IAEA Department of Nuclear Security later this year. Accounting and control measures that respond to the insider threat are also described in NSS-33, Establishing a System for Control of Nuclear Material for Nuclear Security Purposes at a Facility During Storage, Use and Movement, and in NSS-41, Preventive and Protective Measures against Insider Threats (originally issued as NSS-08), which are available in draft form. This paper describes enhancements to existing material control and accounting systems that are specific to research reactors, and shows how they are important to nuclear security and protecting against an insider.

Book Description :

Numerous studies indicate that amongst the various types of security threats, the problem of insider misuse of IT systems can have serious consequences for the health of computing infrastructures. Although incidents of external origin are also dangerous, the insider IT misuse problem is difficult to address for a number of reasons. A fundamental reason that makes the problem mitigation difficult relates to the level of trust legitimate users possess inside the organization. The trust factor makes it difficult to detect threats originating from the actions and credentials of individual users. An equally important difficulty in the process of mitigating insider IT threats is based on the variability of the problem. The nature of Insider IT misuse varies amongst organizations. Hence, the problem of expressing what constitutes a threat, as well as the process of detecting and predicting it are non trivial tasks that add up to the multi- factorial nature of insider IT misuse. This thesis is concerned with the process of systematizing the specification of insider threats, focusing on their system-level detection and prediction. The design of suitable user audit mechanisms and semantics form a Domain Specific Language to detect and predict insider misuse incidents. As a result, the thesis proposes in detail ways to construct standardized descriptions (signatures) of insider threat incidents, as means of aiding researchers and IT system experts mitigate the problem of insider IT misuse. The produced audit engine (LUARM - Logging User Actions in Relational Mode) and the Insider Threat Prediction and Specification Language (ITPSL) are two utilities that can be added to the IT insider misuse mitigation arsenal. LUARM is a novel audit engine designed specifically to address the needs of monitoring insider actions. These needs cannot be met by traditional open source audit utilities. ITPSL is an XML based markup that can standardize the description of incidents and threats and thus make use of the LUARM audit data. Its novelty lies on the fact that it can be used to detect as well as predict instances of threats, a task that has not been achieved to this date by a domain specific language to address threats. The research project evaluated the produced language using a cyber-misuse experiment approach derived from real world misuse incident data. The results of the experiment showed that the ITPSL and its associated audit engine LUARM provide a good foundation for insider threat specification and prediction. Some language deficiencies relate to the fact that the insider threat specification process requires a good knowledge of the software applications used in a computer system. As the language is easily expandable, future developments to improve the language towards this direction are suggested.
