Insider Threat Defined
Insider threats occur when a past or present employee or business partner maliciously uses access to an organization's IT systems, intellectual property, or any other valuable data. The insider threat may use the data to commit fraud, sabotage the organization, or outright steal proprietary data. Insider threats can also come from user negligence or compromised accounts.
Why is Insider Threat Detection Important?
Today’s damaging breaches are rooted in people-based vulnerabilities. You must protect data and guard your most critical systems against the broad spectrum of insiders, including accidental, compromised and malicious users. Forcepoint Insider Threat identifies the riskiest insiders in your environment and empowers your teams to confidently investigate and remediate the threat.
The Forcepoint Advantage
Powerful combination of a lightweight, highly scalable agent and integrated third party data for a complete view of user actions and comprehensive insider threat prevention.
Baselines behaviors for both individual users and work groups, identifies anomalies and provides a daily consolidated risk score for each user. Quickly highlights your organization’s 30-day risk trends.
Workflows tie together relevant user activity and sources of risk with event timelines, trend lines and access to precise user activity – including live video capture and replay of individual user actions.
Options to anonymize the individual during risk scoring while retaining the ability to connect a user to their individual actions (when enterprise risk is at stake). Governance to control, monitor and audit investigators.
