New CDSE Case Study

CDSE Insider Threat recently released a new case study:

  • Deepanshu Kasaba Kher. This cyber intrusion/sabotage case study outlines Kher’s crimes, sentence, the impact, and the potential risk indicators that, if identified, could have mitigated harm.

All of CDSE’s case studies can easily be included in an organization’s security education, training, and awareness programs. They are suitable for printing or easy placement in a company or command newsletter, email, or training bulletin. Access our newest case studies.
