Synopsis

Insiders – they’re the one thing that we all have in our businesses. Whether we are talking about employees, contractors or partners, you need to know that your confidential data, intellectual property and your customer’s personal data is secure.
Signatures are old hat and just don’t work. Rules describe your company but you can’t define rules to cover every possible threat scenario.

Learn about the new approach of User Behaviour Analytics (UBA) and how it can be used to spot unusual and potentially dangerous user behaviour – even those behaviours which you hadn’t considered as risky.


Attend this BCS meeting and learn about using User Behaviour Analytics to:

• Harness the power of machine learning to automatically spot unusual behaviours
• Use peer group behaviour to highlight users of real concern
• Discover how quickly you can investigate the detail of concerning behaviour once it has been highlighted
• Spot potential leavers before they hand in their notice!
