Insider Threat
Deliberate or accidental threat to an organisation’s security from anyone who has legitimate access to your organisation’s assets as they exploit their position for unauthorised purposes (so not just employees, but also contractors, partners and suppliers).


Successful insider threat programs proactively use a mitigation approach of detect and identify, assess, and manage to protect their organization.

The foundation of the program’s success is the detection and identification of observable, concerning behaviours or activities.

Insider Threat Indicators

Insider threat indicators are crucial to identifying potential risks within an organization.

Network anomalies and disgruntled employees are just a few examples of concerning behaviours that could signify a possible threat.

Trackable indicators such as unusual activity times, excessive data transfer, and accessing unusual resources should be closely monitored.

To enhance visibility, deploying a comprehensive solution that tracks employee actions and correlates data from multiple sources is recommended.

Leveraging technology can help identify malicious insiders or imposters and provide valuable insight into their actions.

Insider Threat Detection

Detecting insider threats can be challenging as they are often more difficult to identify and prevent than external attacks.

Traditional security solutions such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems are not designed to detect insider threats, making them invisible to these measures. In addition, malicious insiders who are familiar with an organization’s security measures can easily avoid detection.

To safeguard all assets, businesses must adopt a diversified insider threat detection strategy that goes beyond relying on a single solution. An effective detection system should incorporate the ability to monitor insider behaviour and alert on any anomalous activity.

At Fact360, we recognize that user behaviour analysis is paramount to protecting against insider threats. Our platform can seamlessly integrate with existing SIEM architecture, ensuring comprehensive and effective insider threat detection.

2.  Leveraging NLU-based analytics software, anomalies identified in step one can be thoroughly investigated to assess their potential threat level.

The primary value proposition of our platform is the ability to monitor human behaviour and identify potential threats before they materialize. With the addition of predictive analytics, organizations can significantly reduce reliance on incident response and proactively remove the threat before it occurs.
