How Organizations Can Really Find Insider Risk
Insider risks are often too well concealed to be detected using conventional data analytics solutions, so organizations typically become aware of threats only after an incident has occurred. Meanwhile, SOC analysts are overwhelmed chasing down alerts and trying to validate what mostly turn out to be false positives.
Haystax has worked closely with government agencies and private organizations to develop an insider threat mitigation solution that continuously measures the trustworthiness of personnel in an organization, pinpointing early indications of the most serious risk from IP theft, espionage, fraud and other adverse events. Our analytics platform reasons like a team of expert analysts, but at a volume and velocity that no human could sustain. It performs true all-source analysis by ingesting data from a wide variety of sources and then applying probabilistic models, machine learning and other artificial intelligence techniques to ‘connect the dots.’
Model-based analytics focused on people, not devices
We understand the challenge of hiring experienced insider risk subject-matter experts. They’re scarce, expensive and in high demand. This lack of available resources is a key reason behind the development of Haystax’s pioneering artificial intelligence-driven analytics platform. At the heart of Haystax for Insider Threat is a Bayesian inference network in the form of a probabilistic behavioral risk model. The model mathematically represents over 700 different human behaviors and life events as key risk indicators, culled from subject-matter experts in psychology, cybersecurity, fraud, HR and other relevant domains. This model behaves like multiple insider risk experts and assigns a trustworthiness score to each and all your organization’s assets.
An end-to-end SOC platform
Managing and executing a successful insider risk program can be daunting, given the complexity of processes involved, data to be analyzed and controls to be implemented. In collaboration with some of the world’s leading insider threat programs, Haystax built an analytics platform integrating multiple apps that automate, streamline and support organizational security investigations and decision-making. In the process we have helped analysts to reduce many of the most tedious and time-consuming aspects of their daily workflows.
