Best Practices for Preventing Insider Risks
Have a Baseline of Your Threat Environment and Assess IRRPs
Compromise assessments can uncover previous incidents and set priorities for closing security gaps. Develop IRRPs and playbooks to build up incident response (IR) team skills.
Keep Insider Threats from Becoming Insider Incidents
Prevent endpoints from being compromised and stop risky behavior automatically with endpoint security solutions based on artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and automation.
Minimize Damage by Accelerating Detection and Response
Short on resources? Forge retainer relationships with external IR teams and secure managed detection and response services to offload alert management.
