Event description


ISACA.Lu, as part of its SheLeadsTech program, is privileged to invite its members and partner associations members to an After-Work evening on Insider Threats & AI. The interactive conference will be followed by a networking cocktail.

The Conference

Ms. Tanya HARRIS, through her knowledge working with Goldsmith Centre for Intelligent Data Analytics, will explain how AI machine learning can add additional layers of data security by sharing insight into using a new technology that triggers abnormalities in communication using transactional analysis.

She challenges how we look at Cybersecurity insider threat and data protection and discusses changes to legislation and how this both supports privacy and can potentially hinder security, as such, why insider threat is challenging yet needs to be at the core of protecting data.


  • Security and what we are attempting to protect

  • The different types of insider threats from Board of Directors to Frontline Staff

  • Risks that each type of threat poses and how it can currently be managed

  • Terry Childs, A man, and his network - Case Study

  • The elephant in the room - Data privacy and struggles that we face with monitoring of staff

  • How AI is used for fraud gathering and can also help reduce insider threat using Enron related data

The Speaker, Company & Fields of Endeavour:

Tanya Harris, CEO of Harrman Cyber, a UK company that provides comprehensive protection against data security and inside threat. Their services extend from NIST cyber risk assessments, designed in the US to guide business on how to secure their data to, insider threat solutions that protect data from being lost, stolen or leaked by authorised personnel.

The business was formed from three cohorts being: British Intelligence, AI machine learning and Professors of Psychology at The University of Oxford. Collectively the board has over 200 plus years experience in Counter Intelligence, Cybersecurity, AI, human behaviour and Data Governance, placing them at the forefront of insider threat and the protection of data.

Typically companies have focused on protection from outside attacks, yet in reality, the biggest risk to data comes from within; and with 6 in 10 companies forecast to face a cyber breach in the next 12 months, these threats are not going away.

It is essential for a business to turn their attention to people and process as a failure to do so will certainly result in a culture that poses a risk to the security of your data.

Tanya has spoken at Bank of America Meryl Lynch UK, AISA Australia, Women in Technology, ISACA CSX2017 UK and Australia.

Tanya is on the Board of Universal Data Protection, Iron Arrow Consulting, ICOM4 and is an “In Conversation business partner” with AWS (Amazon Web Services) education portal as an Insider Threat advisor.
