Essentially, the risk of insider threats has held steady and the threat from foreign actors has risen.  SolarWinds has technology that can help you manage your network to improve the security posture of your agency.

During the interview Turner discussed the assertion, “The first thing an organization needs to catch an insider threat is network visibility.”  He expands on how to get network visibility and the proper approach to massive numbers of alerts.
