Early detection of employees' improper access to sensitive or valuable data is critical to limiting negative financial impacts to an organization, including regulatory penalties for misuse of customer data that results from these insider attacks. This paper focuses primarily on the techniques for detecting insider attacks, but also discusses the processes required to implement a solution. In particular, we describe a behavior-anomaly-based system for detecting insider attacks. The system uses peer-group profiling, composite feature modeling, and real-time statistical data mining. The analytical models are refined and used to update the real-time monitoring process. Finally, we describe an implementation of this detection approach in the form of the IBM Identity Risk and Investigation Solution (IRIS).
