WHAT: Users are the best source of information on whether their activity is legitimate or not. Credit card companies know this and routinely enlist their help to validate anomalous activity and prevent fraud. This approach, when applied to enterprise security, can help identify breaches that evade traditional security tools. In this session, “Self-Audits: Applying User Context to Activity Anomalies”, security expert Leslie K. Lambert will explain how risk-scored activity reports can be used to defeat the compromise and misuse of identity, plus provide deterrence, and raise security awareness for employees, business partners and customers. She will use real-world enterprise use cases to explain:

•  Why account compromise is so hard to detect and why traditional security methods typically cannot detect these attacks until it’s too late
•  What alternative protections are available and how effective they are
•  How self-audit works to detect account compromise in the enterprise
