Insider Threat Management Guide

Steps to Get Ahead of Insider Threats

In the current insider threat landscape, security and risk management leaders have a greater need to assess and manage insider risks. They must evaluate and strengthen their insider risk program, including surveillance of high-risk workers and anomaly monitoring of critical applications and data. In this ebook, you’ll learn the key trends shaping the insider threat landscape and steps to get ahead of increasing insider threats.

Common Insider Risk Management Questions

What Are The Signs Of Insider Threat?

There are several activities that could indicate someone is an insider threat. You may have an insider threat if an employee:

  • Grants themselves access to more privileged information.
  • Begins to access privileged information more often.
  • Accesses privileged information that they should not need to access to perform their job duties.
  • Prints a lot of documents or begins downloading data onto a personal USB.
  • Uses a weak password.
  • Leaves their computer on without logging off or exiting applications with sensitive information.

These behaviors are red flags that every company should take seriously to prevent a cyberattack.

How Do I Mitigate Insider Threats?

Here are the five steps you should take to reduce the risk of insider attacks within your organization:

  • Identify your most valuable assets, so you know what needs to be protected.
  • Establish an insider threat program that outlines how you will monitor employees and detect insider threats.
  • Begin monitoring employees and analyzing user data to identify suspicious activity.
  • Enforce the rules and the consequences for failing to comply with company policy.
  • Conduct cybersecurity training with your employees to ensure they know what they can do to prevent an attack and the consequences of maliciously committing an attack.
What Are The Building Blocks Of A Successful Insider Risk Management Program?

Because you never know where an attack will come from, it’s critical that every endpoint is protected from both external and internal attacks. Typically, a robust security strategy incorporates the following capabilities:

  • User & Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA)
  • User Activity Monitoring (UAM)
  • Data Breach Response (DBR)
  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Veriato’s platform incorporates most of these capabilities under one roof, powering everything with proprietary machine learning capabilities.

Why Do I Need An Insider Risk Management And Detection Solution?

An insider threat management solution like Veriato will help you monitor your most sensitive data, track user activity and monitor for potential breaches before they happen. It will also help you ensure regulatory compliance, conduct audits and respond quickly to any data breaches.

Veriato can help you take your insider risk detection a step further and proactively monitor for threats by using machine learning to analyze user behavior, identify risk factors and generate risk scores for each monitored user.

What Is Insider Risk Management?

Insider Risk Management (IRM) is a strategic approach designed to mitigate risks posed by insiders—employees, contractors, or any individuals with access to an organization’s internal resources. It involves identifying, assessing, and managing potential threats that insiders could pose to the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of the organization’s information assets.

What Insider Risk Challenges Are Faced In Business?

Businesses, regardless of size, face significant insider risk challenges:

  • Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) often struggle with limited resources to implement comprehensive IRM strategies, making them vulnerable to threats from negligent or malicious insiders.
  • Larger Enterprises deal with the complexity of monitoring a vast number of employees across multiple locations, increasing the difficulty of detecting insider threats amidst the noise of everyday activity.

Both SMBs and larger enterprises must navigate the challenges of balancing security measures with maintaining an open and collaborative work environment.

Why is Insider Risk Management Important?

Insider Risk Management is crucial for safeguarding an organization’s critical assets from the potential threats posed by insiders. It helps in:

  • Protecting Sensitive Information: Ensures that confidential data remains secure from unauthorized access or leaks.
  • Maintaining Compliance: Assists in adhering to regulatory requirements and avoiding legal penalties.
  • Preserving Reputation: Prevents incidents that could damage the organization’s public image and stakeholder trust.
  • Enhancing Security Posture: Moves from a reactive to a proactive approach in identifying and mitigating security threats.
What Industries Are Susceptible to Insider Risk Threats?

Insider risks are a critical concern across various sectors, with certain industries being particularly vulnerable due to the nature and sensitivity of the information they handle. Here’s a summary of key sectors at risk:

  • Finance Sector: Financial organizations, including banks and investment firms, face insider threats related to embezzlement, fraud, and data breaches, necessitating strong safeguards.
  • Healthcare Industry: With strict privacy laws like HIPAA, healthcare providers must protect patient records from unauthorized access or accidental sharing.
  • Government Entities: Sensitive PII and PHI data requires stringent clearance and monitoring to prevent data leaks.
  • Education Institutions: Strategies to detect and deter breaches are needed in open environments that store student information and intellectual property.
  • Technology Companies: The protection of proprietary data, such as source code, is vital to prevent loss to competitors or unauthorized public disclosure.
  • Law Firms: Confidential client information must be securely managed to maintain privilege and prevent reputational damage.
  • Manufacturing: Trade secrets, especially in defense and high-tech, must be guarded against industrial espionage and internal breaches.
  • Retail and E-Commerce: Consumer data integrity and confidentiality must be ensured to protect against internal misuse or tampering.
  • Pharmaceutical Companies: Protecting sensitive trial data and research findings is crucial to maintaining competitive advantage and ensuring public safety.
