“One of our insider threats isn’t this bad actor evil person retaliating or breaking something – it’s someone who’s doing something potentially innovative and creative to get their job done,” Cunningham says. “But in doing that, they can cause some issues for our security team.”
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Cunningham discusses:

Factors influencing remote worker behavior;
How security professionals can help mitigate insider threat risks;
Priorities for insider threat risk management this year.

Cunningham, an experimental psychologist and the principal research scientist for human behavior at Forcepoint X-Labs, serves as the behavioral science subject matter expert in an interdisciplinary security team driving the development of human-centric security solutions. Previously, she supported the human systems integration branch of The Department of Homeland Security.
