Employee Investigations

Resolve incidents 10x Faster

More freedom & access should not mean less security visibility

In today’s corporate environment, employees are more dispersed and work with sensitive data on a daily basis. For security teams, piecing together employee context around multiple suspicious actions from disparate logs is expensive or often impossible. Employee monitoring solutions are installed only after the fact and reduce employee productivity with bloated agents that overburden workstations.

Examples of high-risk employees:

  • Disgruntled employees
  • Departing employees (voluntary or involuntary)
  • Employees with access to sensitive data or IP

Risky employee behaviors may include:

  • Installing hacking tools 
  • Moving sensitive data to Removable Media, Cloud Shares etc.
  • Accessing insecure websites
  • Exfiltrating corporate intellectual property

Your World Recruitment Group in Combating WhatsApp Data Exfiltration

Challenge

Recruitment industry: A popular target for data security threats

These organizations often possess personally identifiable information (PII) on candidates and information regarding employment opportunities within other firms—data which can be misused by employees with access. 

Furthermore, most mid-sized recruiters cannot afford massive, in-house security and compliance teams to mitigate these risks.

INDUSTRY: Healthcare & IT Staffing

SIZE: 500 – 1000 employees; privately held & global workforce

Solution

Small IT team casts large security shadow with ObserveIT

ObserveIT enabled their small IT team to investigate attempted data exfiltration and other risky employee behaviors in a timely, user-friendly, and effective manner. Our platform is easy to use, even without deep security training or a large team, and identifies threats graded by severity without requiring fine-tuning and hands-on alert management.

Result

Evidence gathered in seconds & investigations completed in days

ObserveIT has helped the organisation identify and put a stop to several potential insider threats, including:

  • A user attempting to defraud the organisation via falsified business expenses
  • Users creating fake email accounts to impersonate candidates in an attempt to change bank details and ultimately steal money from the organisation
  • Rampant sharing of credentials, which could lead to intentional or accidental data leakage

The IT organisation is able to use ObserveIT to proactively reinforce their security policy via user reminders popping up in apps like WhatsApp, email clients, and CRMs.

Now, employee investigations take one to two days instead of weeks previously. The team is able to run lean while feeling confident in their ability to catch and investigate intentional and accidental threats, maintain GDPR compliance, and protect their business and reputation.
