Level:  Intermediate

Most organizations are cognizant of the insider threat, yet many simply consider this threat as a single type of actor, when in fact the insider threat is a grouping of several distinct adversary types. As each type of insider has different characteristics, a uniform defense approach is not effective. Rather, a variety of defense measures must be deployed in order to be effective against the different types of internal adversaries.

Presented by the elite organization of security researchers and consultants widely known for being the first company to hack the iPhone, this session will articulate the different types of internal adversaries and through case study analysis, provide attendees with actionable tactics to effectively defend against each type.

Geoff Gentry is Regional Director for Independent Security Evaluators, responsible for driving initiatives that advance security conditions across several industries. He is currently spearheading Immune-Secure, a National Pilot Program that will revolutionize how a 2+ trillion dollar industry handles our private data. Mr. Gentry has led many initiatives in the private sector, including developing and implementing a go-to-market strategy for an Austin, Texas start-up that captured 70% of market share. He holds a B.A. from Texas State University, calls Austin home, and is the father of one daughter who talks entirely too much, mostly about Apple.
