Cyber Security Disruptive Technologies Theatre

Wed 5th Oct 13:00 to 13:30

Who will be the next Mossack Fonseca? The insider security threat.

Identifying insider threats before they happen is hard. Although many detection approaches have been tried, they are generally onerous to manage and impede legitimate business. BAE Systems has developed cutting edge analytics, including predictive and machine learning techniques, to discover the threats and areas of risk most likely to impact business and explore what you can do to defend against them and mitigate the impact.

What you will take away from this session

  • 1. Insider attackers have a variety of motivations and backgrounds, it’s not just the disgruntled employee or state sponsored plant. Long term, well behaved employees can steal information, believing it to ‘belong to them’.
  • 2. Insiders are hard to spot - analytics are a powerful way to differentiate normal from abnormal behaviour.
  • 3. Performant analytics require strong data science and deep understanding of attack methods – know your enemy, know how to find them.
  • 4. Closely monitor low paid employees with access to lots of information and single points of failure (network admins)
