Q3 2022 Threat Landscape Virtual Briefing: Insider Threat Peaks to Its Highest Level Yet

Online Event

November 8 - 9, 2022 | (Online Event)

In Q3 2022, Kroll saw insider threat peak to its highest level yet, almost doubling compared to the second quarter of the year. Insider threat makes up part of the unauthorized access category, which saw an increase in popularity as a threat incident type from 15% in Q2 to 22% in Q3. Kroll also observed a number of malware infections via USBs this last quarter, potentially pointing to wider external factors, such as an increasingly changeable labor market and widespread economic turbulence, that may encourage insider threat.

Watch Kroll’s cyber threat intelligence leaders explore key insights gained through handling cyber incidents around the world in the third quarter of 2022.

This webcast covers:

  • The significant growth of insider threat and its impact on organizations
  • An increase in valid accounts as a means to launch an attack, which could be tied to malware trends
  • The rise in the targeting of small- to medium-sized e-commerce websites via web compromises, with the aim of stealing credit card information
  • An increase in effective attacks against professional services, the education sector and manufacturing firms
