One of the fastest-growing security threats is the insider threat.
Hord Tipton, the executive director of ISC2 and the former chief information officer at the Interior Department, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the “red flags” managers should look for in the hiring process.
Tipton compiled a list of those warning signs in a post for AOLGovernment.
“In our rush to hire qualified people, we must avoid those candidates who are noticeably susceptible to life’s pressures and who may demonstrate unpredictable behavior as a result,” Tipton wrote.
Some of those red flags to “rogue behavior” include employees’ opinions of hacking and how ambitious they appear to be.
