Only with full visibility into employee or third-party activity across a company network can even the earliest indicators of an insider threat be detected. By monitoring both user and file activity, security and compliance professionals can be alerted to risky, out-of-policy activities and any unexplained changes in user behavior in real-time; successfully stopping and investigating any activity before it becomes a full-blown breach.
Research from The Ponemon Institute shows that Financial Services organizations face the highest penalty costs of any other industry ($12.05 million annually) when they experience an insider-led incident, though they are closely followed by the Energy & Utilities and Retail sector. This cost alone is a very concrete reason to address what otherwise might seem to be an invisible problem.
In this session, ObserveIT will discuss:
- The key components of full visibility: user activity, data activity, and behavior analytics
- Your organization’s risk exposure to the different types of insider threat, with sector/industry focus
- Incorporating insider threat management best practices into your security and governance strategies.
