Insider threats refer to security risks caused by malicious users within a corporate network. This type of attack is different from one caused by a compromised credential, where an external hacker has used valid, stolen account credentials to impersonate an employee and access a network. In the case of a malicious insider, the user typically is acting with intent and likely knows that he is breaking policy and potentially the law.
Inappropriate access rights from current employees to contractors to suppliers put your organization’s data at risk. Early detection is difficult because the signals that point to a malicious insider may live in multiple places and require a level of expertise that few systems and no humans have.
Read the white paper and learn how to:
- Identify early patterns of risky behavior to prevent loss of sensitive data
- Detect insider threat risk signals
- Deploy a user and entity behavior analytics solution (UEBA) to identify insider threats
