'''TITLE:''' The Insider Threat: Can we trust our colleagues?
 
 
 
'''ABSTRACT:'''
 
The insider threat leads to significant risk for most organizations.
 
An insider has a huge advantage over external people with respect to carrying out malicious acts. The insider is authorized for access and can therefore bypass many security controls designed to prevent unauthorized access. Mechanisms such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and electronic access control to buildings are implemented primarily to defend against external threats. 
 
 
 
Insiders are not only aware of the critical assets, policies, procedures, and technology used in their organizations, but also of the vulnerabilities. Furthermore, an insider has the opportunity to choose the best time to commit a malevolent act. Furthermore, the severity of insider malicious activity may be significantly amplified, if assisted by a team of highly sophisticated and well-resourced outsiders. Regardless of motivation, in a worst case scenario, the malicious insider can potentially jeopardize the lives of innocent people.  
 
 
 
This talk discusses the potential risk of insider threats, and possible approaches for controlling and reducing insider threats.

  • TITLE:  Privacy for mobile apps: Technical, regulatory and human challenges
    SPEAKER:  Nurul Momen  (Karlstad University)
    ABSTRACT: What is the most intimate device that you possess? If the answer is your mobile phone, you'd probably be interested in finding out how apps behave. In one end, we have a powerful device capable of collecting, monitoring, processing, transmitting data and in other end, this device is connected to hundreds of services through apps. Undeniably, users are being subjected to privacy exploitation due to the obvious reason - surveillance capitalism. We intend to turn the table around by simply asking - how do the apps behave?
