Beware Of The Enemy Within

Protecting an organization against insider threats is never easy.

  • Perimeter defenses are by design ineffective in dealing with insider threats. Locking everything down can interfere with productivity – often leading to management demanding rollback of valuable security measures. And trust, by itself, isn’t much of a strategy.

    If background checks and interviews were effective at preventing insider threats, you wouldn’t be reading this. Common sense dictates that appropriate levels of monitoring of user activity and behavior be deployed to protect the organization. Scanning and alerting on user activity for signs of heightened risk or actual threat provides the early warning system needed to reduce your risk and strengthen your security posture.

  • More Access, More Risk

    The more access an insider has – the greater their privileges – the higher the risk. Actively monitoring insider activity ensures that the access authorized is not being used in an unauthorized way. Recording, scanning, and storing all high risk insider activities for known indicators of threats is a practical, efficient, and effective strategy for protecting against the worst types of insider attacks – those that level elevated privileges to inflict serious damage.

  • When the Alarm Sounds

    Whether detected by technology or through other means (like an employee tip), when insider behaviors cross into the threat category, you need to respond rapidly. Detailed, contextual information about exactly what was done, whether the actions where inadvertent or malicious in intent, and whether others were involved is required to make sure the threat is addressed. And because the insider is on the payroll, Legal and HR will require lots of documentation. Having a complete record of user activity, available via reports, dashboard views, and powerful video playback capability means you have everything you need in one place.
