In the COVID era, countless companies in healthcare, particularly those involved with vaccine and therapeutic development, have experienced a rash of insider incidents. For example, in November 2021, a large pharmaceutical firm alleged that an employee stole trade secrets for personal gain. Also with a move to remote work and limited staff, there have been numerous unintentional insider incidents. These incidents can be spurred by nation state actors, criminal actors, personal employee motivation for financial gain or revenge or just through non-malicious acts. A report from Cybersecurity Insiders suggests that 57% of organizations feel insider incidents have become more frequent over the past 12 months and data from the 2021 Verizon Breach Investigations Report notes that 22% of security incidents in 2021 involved insiders, with the healthcare and finance industries experiencing the most. This panel of experts from healthcare organizations will provide a view of the insider threat landscape, talk about actual incidents and lessons learned, describe how they collaborate through the Health ISAC to protect against these threats and also impart strategies and tips for developing an insider threat program based upon their experiences.
