#CyberFLASH: New CGI insider threat advisory services help government and private enterprise address critical cybersecurity issue

workplace-privacyMONTRÉAL – Today, CGI announced an important new offering – delivering strategic advisory and implementation services to help global government and commercial clients address cybersecurity threats that come from trusted insiders, such as current employees, contractors or business partners.

In CGI’s annual Voice of Our Clients program, 965 in-person interviews with commercial and government organizations around the world identified cybersecurity as a top 5 issue. They stated that this threat is becoming increasingly important as they transform to customer-centric digital organizations.

CGI’s program enables global organizations to become more proactive in their approach to mitigating insider risks by focusing first on cultural and behavioral change so organizations and employees alike view seemingly normal, everyday actions of employees through an insider threat “lens.” The program helps organizations analyze and correlate disparate data sources to uncover potential risks and threats.

“An active insider threat risk management program should be an integral part of security for every organization,” said Michael E. Roach, President and Chief Executive Officer, CGI. “Emanating from our extensive work in the United States this critical capability is now available to companies and governments world-wide.”

CGI helps clients integrate an improved security posture into their culture in light of today’s ongoing security challenges. Insider threat program advisory services aid clients in defining a taxonomy for insider threat that reflects the organization’s culture and operations, mapping their risk profile, and creating a playbook for response and mitigation. The program uses sophisticated methodologies and creates a governance model for ongoing program management. CGI provides a wide range of program implementation services, from Insider Threat Program Office setup to ongoing monitoring services. Monitoring services can be provided as a managed service or on client premises.
