Key Learning Points
- Understand the cultural change that is happening
- Understand how this change alters the problem of insider threats
- Design a security program that appeals and engages Millennials as well as all the generations
By 2025 members of the Millennial generation will comprise 75% of the global workforce. Like it or not, Millennials are changing the workplace, along with information security.
Furthermore, it really does not matter how many security appliances you buy, policies you publish, or internationally accepted frameworks you follow, if a single trusted employee can bypass all of it. The insider threat is not exclusively a technical challenge, but also a human challenge.
For the past year, Anitian studied the impact Millennials will have on information security and insider threats. While this tectonic demographic shift has many threats, it also presents an opportunity to mature information security into the future.
In this presentation, security veteran Andrew Plato will discuss the challenge of insider threats and how to build a Next Generation Security Program. As both a security practitioner and business leader, Mr. Plato has a unique perspective on building engaged workforces. Specifically, we will address how to craft a security program that appeals to a younger generation, who naturally likes to share and collaborate.
