Cybersecurity related to preventing insider threats has proven popular, with up to five government departments interested in insider threat protection over past few months. Trying to defend against threats from the inside can be extremely difficult, but cybersecurity experts tend to look for unusual employee behavior before information is compromised.

 

"Across the board, I see this as still being a growth area for us," said Nadia Short, VP and GM of cyber systems at General Dynamics, when speaking to Reuters. The contractor has merged its cyber and engineering departments, providing additional expertise and streamlined security developments.
