Common Employee Monitoring Questions

What Is Insider Risk Management?

Insider Risk Management is an essential approach utilized by entities to address cyber security risks presented by members of the organization with access to confidential data and systems. This strategy concentrates on detecting and handling potential dangers that insiders, such as employees or contractors, could present to information security, regulatory compliance and business continuity. It includes various measures such as observing user behaviors, managing information access, and instructing personnel on cyber security best practices.

What Insider Risk Challenges Is Higher Education Facing?

Higher education institutions encounter distinct challenges in managing insider risks, primarily due to their diverse user base comprising full-time staff, part-time workers, and even students. Each group has varying degrees of access to sensitive information stored within university systems, from personal student data to financial records. The shift towards hybrid work models adds another layer of complexity, complicating the oversight of employee productivity and the secure handling of sensitive information.
