The Business Case for
“Security and risk management leaders must
be aware of the increasing concern over employee malfeasance and
deploy solutions to discretely gather evidence.”
– Gartner Market Guide for Employee-Monitoring Products and Services, Jonathan Care, 22 August 2018
Deploy Employee Monitoring Tools Without Sacrificing User Privacy
Employee monitoring doesn’t have to be like “Big Brother.” An effective Insider Threat Management strategy keeps employees in the loop, giving them context into why user activity monitoring processes and technologies are in place.
It’s not just good practice for people, it’s good for business (not to mention GDPR compliance).
Step 1: Foster a culture of cybersecurity awareness by making employees a part of the conversation. Proactive, in-the-moment coaching can help employees understand cybersecurity policies, avoiding potentially costly errors.
Step 2: Choose a solution that allows for anonymization of employee data to protect user privacy, while collecting the user activity data you need to investigate insider threats.
Employee Monitoring & Insider Threat Management
Employee monitoring is just one part of a greater, more comprehensive Insider Threat Management strategy. Cybersecurity teams need to gain a clear understanding of their people, establish effective processes, and make strategic use of technology.
A modern Insider Threat Management platform can help teams:
Move Beyond Employee Monitoring
with an Insider Threat Management Platform
Uncover risky user behavior with user activity monitoring, and keep employee data anonymous

Get proactive about Insider Threat Management with user alerts, blocking, and education
