Topic 1: A behavioral analytics approach to insider and outsider attacks
Speaker : Stephen Jou, FileTrek
Stephen will introduce the new concept of using behavioral analytics as a tool to detect both insider and outsider threats. The presentation will explain how behavioral analytics can be applied in an operational model to build baselines of end user behaviors and then detect anomalies in those behaviors. These anomalies are the early stage steps in an insider attack or the indicators of compromise (IOCs) of a targeted outside attack.
Using case studies, Stephen will show how applying behavioral analytics to observe analyze and act on workplace threats (insiders mistakenly or intentionally mishandling data and/or outsiders acting as insiders trying to steal company sensitive data like intellectual property) enables even small security teams to; gain visibility to the data risks that exist across their organization, improve enforcement existing security controls, and cover use cases such as person of interest investigation and persistent insider threat.
