Insider threats are responsible for about 60 percent of the security attacks facing organizations. Many of these attacks are the result of users’ credentials falling into the hands of hackers via internal employees, contractors or partners who are victims of malware-laden phishing attacks, drive-by downloads, or other techniques. The good news is these insider threats can be detected early and steps can be taken to avoid a more serious incident. By utilizing tools to develop a profile of “normal” user behavior it is possible to quickly identify significant deviations from that normal behavior, possibly signaling a breach of your environment. Once analysts are made aware of the suspicious behavior, they can take steps to investigate the activity and remediate to address it, possibly halting an attack before it becomes more serious.
