The Threat from Inside

Sorry it's been a week since the last podcast, but it's been a full week, with plans for upcoming tests, new products to look at, and plenty of news on the security front to think about. I've got a couple of longer podcasts coming up--podcasts with interviews and other folks talking so you don't have to just listen to me--but until I get them finished I had some thoughts on one of the big news items of the last couple of weeks; the customer data theft that hit Bank of America and other financial institutions. The big thing about these thefts was that they were instigated by insiders--employees who should have known better. Take a listen to the podcast and let me know what you think. Is there a sure technology fix to the question of insider theft? Let me know your thoughts.
