No two insider threat investigations are ever the same—but a standardized process can help them run more smoothly. When you need to prove whether intellectual property, trade secrets, or other sensitive data were exfiltrated, and whether it was done inadvertently, opportunistically, or maliciously, you need an efficient, repeatable workflow.

Our new white paper describes three steps that can help you and your organization to conduct more proactive—not purely reactive—investigations:

  1. Acquire data from cloud, computer, and/or mobile. By targeting the data to a specific date/time range and/or devices or accounts, you can view a user’s work activity in context of any other activity—for instance, personal webmail or messaging.
  2. Apply keywords and filters to correlate evidence across devices to prove malicious intent or exonerate the employee.
  3. Report the results to non-technical stakeholders so that decision-makers can collaborate to tie the evidence back to the broader case, and if needed, more quickly mitigate any damage.
