Today's targeted attacks, whether launched by insiders or by external hackers, are primarily focused on stealing an organizations most sensitive data. The primary defense for organizations is application access controls and in some cases DLP (Data Loss Prevention) monitoring tools. Fully deployed, these controls tend to be defenseless against motivated insiders or outsiders and they generate a continuous stream of false positives. To combat these complex threats effectively, organizations need better context of a user's identity, behavior and their associated peers in order to pinpoint the real attacks and to focus monitoring efforts on what is high risk before it is too late.
This case study gives an overview of how to:
- Immediately reduce the exposure to sensitive data by users with unauthorized or high-risk access;
- Detection better advanced and targeted data attacks;
- Focus on DLP monitoring and investigation to true high risk events and people.
