David Green, a CSO, put pen to paper and published a white paper that spells out 3 Steps To Protect Your Data During The High Risk Exit Period.
What is the High Risk Exit Period? It’s the period of time between when an insider (employee or contractor) decides to leave the organization – or begins to believe they are going to be asked to leave the organization – and

He shares 3 steps – 2 of which involve some tightening of processes and cost nothing to implement. The third step might require some investment in technology to implement effectively, and is one that is simply not being done consistently enough to keep organizations sensitive information safe.
How Veriato Works
Veriato is endpoint-based, which ensures organizations have complete visibility into user behavior, regardless of application. By creating an audit trail that spans the entirety of a user’s activity – which includes application and resource usage, communications, web activity, and more – detection of threats (both analytics- and action-based), investigations, and contextual response is simplified.
A Holistic Security Strategy
User & Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) + User Activity Monitoring (UAM) + Data Breach Response (DBR)
Because you never know where an attack will come from, it’s critical that every endpoint is protected from both external and internal attacks.
Internal breaches can come from:
- Accidental employee actions
- Malicious employee actions
- Former employees
- Business partners
- External attacker posing as an insider (stolen credentials)
