Analyzing the Insider Threat
By Amanda McKeon on May 22, 2017
What exactly is an insider threat? It’s a term we hear a lot in cyber security circles, and of course, the world of threat intelligence. While its meaning seems self-evident, we’ve found that it often brings to mind different things to different people.
In this episode, we talk to a real expert on the subject of insider threats, John Wetzel, a Threat Intelligence Analyst at Recorded Future. Before he joined the team, John was a Counterintelligence Special Agent with the Department of Defense. He’ll share his experiences, describe the types of insider threats you’re likely to encounter, and explain the difference between those insiders that are out to do harm to an organization, and very real threats that can come from actions (or inaction) by those with no ill intent at all.
