An insider is anyone that has administrative access to manipulate your sensitive data. This includes employees, CEOs and contract workers, to name a few. Whether it’s malicious or negligent intent, compromised data is still compromised at any angle that you view it.
Fortunately, advancements in technology have a positive outlook on keeping sensitive data. Advancements in machine learning allow the user to categorize and actively watch sensitive data intently. When that data is compromised, the admin is notified quickly and with evidence; ensuring a deep forensic investigation into the breach.
We’ve reviewed 5 up and coming technologies in the field of insider threat prevention. These technologies hold promise for future threat mitigation.
