    Haystax for Insider Threat is a sophisticated end-to-end Insider Threat Security Operations Center (InTh SOC) platform. Haystax's model-first User Behavior Analytics (UBA) continuously measures the trustworthiness of personnel in an organization, pinpointing early indications of the most serious risk from IP theft, sabotage, fraud, policy violations and other damaging behaviors. Starting with an expert model of insider risk behaviors, the platform integrates a wide array of network and non-network data that’s analyzed using a patented technology, and prioritized against the model. The system then displays the results within a sophisticated interface that interlaces multiple applications that automate or replace the SOC’s investigative workflow. With Haystax, risk and security professionals enable their existing program with speed, confidence and compliance.

    SANS Institute 2017 Insider Threat Survey Results: Defending Against the Wrong Enemy:

    Information security pros consistently rate insider threats as one of their top concerns, but often don't do much about it. According to the results of the 2015 SANS insider threat survey, 74% list insiders as among their top concerns, with 34% admitting to having been a victim of a successful insider breach that is estimated to cost their organization more than $1 million. Breaches caused by the misuse of insider credentials are so difficult to spot that 70% aren't noticed for months, according to the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. Sixty-three percent of breaches involving privileged access involved weak or stolen passwords, which is why the rapid growth of phishing and other credential-stealing tactics are growing so quickly. When it comes to preventing insider attacks, "prevention is more a state of mind than reality," according to SANS expert Eric Cole, Ph.D., author of the 2015 report Insider Threats and the Need for Fast and Directed Response. "Many organizations are still not creating and implementing insider threat programs and need to aggressively increase their focus to better protect the organization," Dr. Cole wrote in 2015. "They need to take aggressive steps to implement administrative and technical solutions for controlling the damage an insider can cause."

    This webcast will explore the survey results with emphasis on:

    • Top concerns related to internal threats.
    • What insider threat programs entail.
    • Maturity of such programs.
    • Tools used to detect and deter insider threats.
    • Whether organizations have improved their abilities to stop.malicious insiders without interfering with those doing their jobs.
