Webinar: Effectively managing the insider threat in financial institutions
Please note: we have changed the date of the webinar to Thursday, November 8 | 2pm BST | 3pm CEST
To be effective, employees in financial institutions need access to many different systems to effectively perform their duties. These systems all contain sensitive and proprietary information which means that granting access can introduce a significant insider threat risk if the user accounts are not managed properly. This problem is made worse when IT administrators need to be given privileged access to systems or when third party business partners need access, so they can collaborate efficiently with the organization.
In many cases, the threat from insiders can pose a greater threat than external threats because malicious employees already have a certain amount of access to company systems and often know where all the company sensitive data is likely to be stored. This threat could result in the theft of information, the deliberate or accidental exposure of confidential data, or the destruction of important records leading to fraud, regulatory fines, public relations or brand issues, or even the destabilization of a financial institution.
Join our webinar on November 8, 2018 at 2pm BST / 3pm CEST to learn how many financial institutions are using identity governance and administration solutions to effectively manage the threat from insiders while maintaining high levels of security and compliance.
In this webinar you will learn how financial institutions:
- Improve security by ensuring that employees, privileged users, and third-party business partners only have access to the systems and applications they need, and that access is automatically revoked once it is no longer needed such as when they move roles or leave the company
- Improve efficiency by automating the interaction between HR and IT systems to grant employees access to systems and applications from a single portal
- Increase productivity by ensuring employees are up and running from day one by provisioning the right access quickly and efficiently
- Ensure ongoing compliance by regularly validating that users still need access to the applications they were initially granted permission to use
- Prevent unnecessary access to more information that necessary by controlling access to financial systems which reduces the risk of large amounts of data being deliberately or accidentally leaked
