Find Insider Threats Before Data Exfiltration

Insider threat prevention teams have a highly-specialized and critical job. Unfortunately, most of the technology they need to be effective has failed them thanks to:

    • Incomplete data silos producing piecemeal information that analysts must sift through after premature alerts lacking context.
    • Weak threat detections sending analysts down investigatory rabbit holes that turnout to be nothing case worthy.
    • Lack of context causing analysts to waste time with non-risky anomalies instead of true insider threat indicators.

Learn About Insider Threats & Insider Threat Prevention

What is considered an insider threat?

An insider threat refers to the potential risk posed by individuals within an organization who have authorized access to sensitive information, systems, or resources, but misuse or abuse that access for malicious purposes. This can include employees, contractors, or partners who intentionally or unintentionally engage in activities that compromise the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of organizational assets. Insider threats can manifest in various forms, such as data theft, unauthorized disclosure, sabotage, fraud, or the introduction of malware.

What is the most common form of insider threat?

The most common form of insider threat is unauthorized disclosure of sensitive information. This occurs when an individual with authorized access to confidential data intentionally or accidentally shares it with unauthorized individuals or entities. Unauthorized disclosure can take the form of leaking classified information, sharing customer data, or disclosing trade secrets to competitors, among other scenarios. This type of insider threat poses significant risks to an organization’s reputation, intellectual property, and overall security posture.

What are the signs of an insider threat?

Signs of an insider threat can manifest in various ways. These include unusual behavior or changes in an employee’s work patterns, such as accessing sensitive information outside their normal job responsibilities or attempting to bypass security controls. Other indicators may include frequent unauthorized access attempts, unauthorized copying or downloading of sensitive data, sudden financial difficulties, disgruntlement, excessive network activity, or unexplained system disruptions.

How does an insider threat occur?

An insider threat occurs when an individual with authorized access to an organization’s resources, systems, or information misuses or abuses that access for malicious purposes. There are various ways in which insider threats can manifest. One common scenario is intentional actions, where an insider deliberately compromises security by stealing sensitive data, engaging in fraud, or sabotaging systems. Unintentional actions can also contribute to insider threats, such as employees falling victim to social engineering attacks or inadvertently causing security breaches due to negligence or lack of awareness. Insider threats can be facilitated through unauthorized access privileges, weak security controls, inadequate monitoring, or compromised credentials.
