Insider Threat Attributes and Mitigation Strategies

CERT has released a new report, Insider Threat Attributes and Mitigation Strategies, which looks at the common attributes that insider threat cases have, according to its database of over 700 insider incidents.

The report also highlights the top seven characteristics that insider threat products should have based on the identified common attributes. These are:

1. Monitor phone activity logs to detect suspicious behaviors;
2. Monitor and control privileged accounts;
3. Monitor and control external access and data downloads;
4. Protect critical files from modification, deletion, and unauthorized disclosure;
5. Disable accounts and/or connections upon employee termination;
6. Prevent unauthorized removable storage mediums;
7. Identify all access paths into organizational information systems.
