Episode 5 - Insider threat
In this week's episode, Mike Yarwood, Managing Director Loss Prevention, talks to David Fairnie of BSI Supply Chain Services and Solutions about the security threat posed by the insider.
While difficult to evidence, there is often suspicion in cargo theft incidents of a degree of insider involvement - sometimes it's just too much of a coincidence that the thieves knew exactly which truck to target and at what time. In this episode we look at how thieves infiltrate a company, who they might target for insider information and why this can be such an effective mode of theft. We also talk through the strategies and procedures that companies should consider to mitigate the security risks posed by the insider.
