Insider threats often originate from employees who cause harm unintentionally (3rd party social engineering) or maliciously (own criminal intent).
No matter the intent, the end result is compromised confidentiality, availability, and/or integrity of enterprise systems and data.
What are the threat types and how do you mitigate them?
From credential theft to zero day exploits, insider threats run the gamut. Behavioral analytics addresses the unknowns with anomaly detection by harnessing the collective powers of adaptive unsupervised machine learning, normalized risk scoring and intuitive visualization, so analysts are empowered to find what matters fast.
How to protect against insider threats and build the right program?
Insider threats are notoriously difficult to detect as they are heavily contextual and rarely follow traditional patterns of attack. However there are some important steps to consider while building your tailored Insider Threat program allowing you to prepare and continuously update/validate.
