InfoWorld Security Boot Camp: Day 18: Imagine your users are up to no good
October 14, 2009
YOUR ASSIGNMENT TODAY: Imagine your users are up to no good.
WHY DO IT: In any large security system, especially one that covers a large enterprise or coast-to-coast implementation, the worst attackers are usually trusted insiders.
HOW TO DO IT:Take a mental trip through your worst fears. Then act on them: implement stricter least privileges, minimize opportunities for untracked privilege use, set up internal honeypots, and use split. Help the honest employee stay honest.
