PLENARY PRESENTATION: INSIDER THREAT: WHY DO PEOPLE CAUSE DATA BREACHES?
Data has become one of the world’s most valuable assets – so, unsurprisingly, protecting it from a multitude of risks remains a continual challenge.
Over the last five years, headline-grabbing incidents have demonstrated the potential implications of a data breach – from damaged business reputation, to loss of revenue and even company devaluation. According to the 2018 Cost of a Data Breach survey conducted by the Ponemon Institute, on average data breaches cost a company $3.86m, up 6.4% from 2017.

The presenter will be discussing how our recently launched Insider Data Breach survey shows just how prolific insider data breaches are and who is behind them.
