Veriato Insider Threat Detection Solution
Insider threat ranks as the #1 fastest growing cybersecurity concern according to a recent survey of 4,500 CIOs and technology leaders across the world
In 2017, 60% of security breaches involved internal actors
The median days to resolution of anInsider Breach is 50 days, second only to Malicious Code at 55 days, but more than double Ransomware (22), Web Attacks (21), Phishing (20), Denial of Service (18), Stolen Services (14), Malware (6) and Botnets (2)
Sources of Insider Threat:
This insider believes he has an unquestionable right to his work product, even when he intends to take it with him and use it to compete with his current employer. He exploits his access to the work product and his knowledge of valuable information for personal gain. He typically acts alone.
Unlike some insiders, Disgruntled Debbie is not motivated by financial gain. Instead, she feels justified in exacting revenge on the organization for real or preceived slights. There are many well known causes of employee disgruntlement. Luckily, she is more predictbale and easier to detect than other malicious insiders.
This insider does not work alone. She wants more than what she helped create. She wants information she doesn’t have access to because it falls outside of the scope of her responsibilities. Often, Ringleaders want to go into business for themselves or work for the competitor. They are typically motivated by financial gain.
An external actor who has gained accesss to insider credentials or a former insider who has retained access logins. Imposters typically target individual, service, or shared accounts as well as other privileged credentials.
The Mole is the quintessential double agent. Working inside a company, but works for the benefit of an outside entity. The Mole typically possesses specialized skills “often in science or engineering” involved in creating IP and has access to the organization’s most critical data.
- 52% of employees who leave an organization say they take sensitive data with them.
- 59% of data security breaches are from internal sources.
Traditional preventative security measures need to be augmented with tools built to capture, analyze and when needed, alert on insider activity and behavior. DLP solutions are not built to deal with the intentional, malicious insider. The list of widely publicized leaks and breaches stemming from inappropriate access to corporate data is long and growing steadily.
Intellectual Property Theft
Experts consistently maintain that upwards of 70% of a corporation’s value is found in Intellectual Property (“IP”). While IP theft represents a small percentage of the number of insider attacks, as much as 50% of the economic damage stemming from insider threats is a result of the theft of intellectual property. Securing critical information like trade secrets has never been more critical.
All employees have some level of access to corporate data and systems. Some, by the nature of their positions, have elevated privileges. Frequently these are employees involved in the creation of the products and services that make up the organization’s value proposition or have access to sensitive data types like customer records, financial information, and employee PII, and sensitive systems that, if subject to sabotage, can bring an organization to a halt.
In all Insider Threat cases, having a solution in place that focuses on the activities and behaviors of the people interacting with corporate resources fills a critical blind spot, and gives the organization the visibility it needs to detect risk, and prevent attack.
Because the insider already has internal access, accounts and corporate assets, the primary focus for effectively dealing with insider threats is detection.

Improve Workplace Productivity: Employee Productivity Tracking
Benefits of employee productivity tracking
Monitoring employee behavior doesn’t mean you don’t trust your employees. Rather, it provides you with the data you need to empower your employees to do and feel their best.
Identify what’s working
Employee productivity tracking helps you see what tools are most effective, what times of day prove most productive, and get an overall picture of how and when your employees work best. This information will allow you to create an optimum environment and toolkit to bolster productivity.
Monitoring software assists in tasks like timekeeping and attendance tracking to give you accurate information instead of relying on reports that are subject to human error.
The very fact that employees know they are being monitored usually helps minimize distractions and inappropriate conduct. Being transparent with monitoring practices can encourage productivity – and increase employee confidence in resolving problems thanks to the accuracy of collected data.
More frequent communication
Be responsible Set limits If employees are being monitored, it keeps the door wide open for communication. Productivity issues are flagged quicker, so they can be addressed immediately. It also makes evaluating employees easier, which encourages more frequent conversations about performance – rather than one dreaded annual review.
Considerations for workplace productivity monitoring
Start with legal
Each state and country has different monitoring and privacy laws and regulations. Talk with your legal counsel about those considerations before customizing an employee productivity tracking plan.
Be open with your employees about your organization’s tracking methods. Make it clear that their actions are subject to monitoring and explain the benefits of it.
Keep the data you collect secure, and confidential. Restrict access to only those who need to review it – and only make it available at those review times.
Only monitor corporate data, not personal material such as social media or online banking access. Don’t single any person or protected group (age, race, gender, etc.) for monitoring.
