The fact that trusted employees or contractors often create problems for the organizations they work for, is unfortunate, but remains a fact. But why?
Companies take steps to protect themselves against the risks that are inherent when bringing in new people. Interviews, background checks, reference checks, etc., are all designed to mitigate risk. Unfortunately, it’s never enough.

In other words, ways to add a bit more intelligence beginning with the screening and hiring process. Then, we’ll look at how to tie the efforts made at the beginning of the life cycle to the rest of the employee life cycle, using a combination of process and tools to significantly improve security, and reduce the chances of an insider incident.
