The presentation seeks to explore the transformation of cybersecurity methodologies in the face of an evolving digital world. In the context of the Canadian financial sector, this has included regulatory guidance and a focus on managing insider threats.

The essence of this shift is the focus on Insider Risk Management (IRM). Insider risks - whether unintentional or intentional - pose a significant threat to organizations. The discussion will examine how insider threats have evolved and how they now require NextGen methodologies and tools to properly mitigate and manage.

By exploring various case studies of significant insider threat incidents, the presentation aims to underscore the critical importance of IRM and its role in a holistic cybersecurity strategy.
