Javvad Malik, Security Advocate at AlienVault:

Javvad Malik“While the focus of many companies is on detecting external threats, companies should not overlook the danger posed by insiders. It is therefore important for companies to have an all-encompassing threat detection and response strategy that can not only alert where external attacks are attempted, but where insiders misuse their legitimate access by monitoring network traffic, endpoints, and behavioural analysis.”
