Improving Contextual Analysis for Protecting Organizations from Insider Threats

Presented by

Robert A. Davidson, Insider Threat Manager at Dominion Energy & Sanjay Raja, VP Product Marketing and Solutions at Gurucul

About this talk

As insider threats have started to escalate in recent years, it is even more important to build and implement a successful insider threat program. However, to do this effectively requires a multi-disciplinary approach with a higher level of contextual analysis that is difficult to achieve today based on current solutions. Credential-based external attacks are also making it even more difficult for security teams to distinguish malicious insiders from external threat actors. Fundamentally, we must change how we look at insider risk and associated threats and implement new strategies to work cross-functionally to protect the organization from both insider and external threats. In this session we will show you what is required to implement a new or improve an existing insider threat program. In addition, we will help you understand what sort of information and context you will need to better identify risks and accelerate the detection of insider threats before damage is done to your organization.
