A Holistic Approach to Addressing Insider Threats

The daily risks of cyber threats to our networks and data from outside actors and current conflicts around the world can often overshadow the dangers posed to a business or agency by its own employees, vendors, and contractors. However, insider threats present serious risks to those same networks and data, and further significantly jeopardize trust and morale.


Join us at the next in-person and live-streaming meeting of the Midwest Cyber Security Alliance (MCSA) on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 from 5-7PM CST. Brian Resler, Vice President at Stroz Friedberg Inc., an Aon company, and former career prosecutor and assistant deputy chief for litigation at the U.S. Department of Justice’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, will address the importance of a culture of security and a comprehensive and tailored approach to mitigate insider threats.


Discussion topics include:

  • Identifying and understanding insider threat actors and their motivations
  • Mitigating relevant vulnerabilities to physical and network security
  • Establishing systems for training, monitoring, logging, and investigation and recovery from initial engagement to post-separation

A panel of contributors will join Brian to provide their own unique insights. Matt Krueger, partner, Foley & Lardner LLP, will offer a perspective from the government investigations side; Maureen Stewart, senior counsel, Foley & Lardner LLP, will speak to insider threats from a labor and employment perspective; and Angela Johnson, chief information security officer of Children’s Wisconsin and president of MCSA, will speak from the corporate point of view.


Two Ways to Join
Our goal is to welcome everyone once again to the scenic 40th floor of our Milwaukee office! Because expanding participation to colleagues outside of the Milwaukee-Chicago corridor was an unexpected benefit of hosting virtual meetings over the last two years, we are pleased to continue offering a virtual option for those not able to attend in person. We will be monitoring CDC, local, and state guidelines, so the program format may be subject to change.

To register, click RSVP below and select in-person or virtual attendance. There is no fee to attend this event, but advanced registration is required.
