Behavioral Analytics - new approach to mitigating insider threats and compressing incident response time to answers.

Insiders account for 48% of data breaches and incident response, on average, takes 42 days to complete. Historically, data protection solutions have followed the threat: moving from the perimeter, to the network, to the server, to the application, to the user, and now to the data itself. Current efforts to secure “structured data” held in repositories such as internal file servers, databases and content management systems are very mature and fully deployed, but protecting against privileged access insider threats and understanding the magnitude of breach can be vexing. These methods do not protect changes to the threat of protecting intellectual property - unstructured file based data that is stolen for financial gain or perceived slight by privilege access users and add complexity to incident response programs. During the presentation we will discuss best practices in behavioral analytics applications and security information event management correlations to compress the time to time to answers.
