CYBER SECURITY: LAST YEAR UK BUSINESS LOST £18 Billion DUE TO CYBER ATTACKS | 6 OUT OF 10 COMPANIES will suffer the same loss IN THE NEXT 12 MONTHS | 60% OF THOSE CYBER BREACHES WILL ORIGINATE FROM WITHIN THE COMPANY

With the new GDPR in May 2018, the protection of your data will be more critical than ever, and with insider threats accounting for over 60% of cyber breaches, protecting your data through technology alone will not be enough.

Artifical Intelligence Offers A New Layer of Cyber Security Protection

Harrman Artificial Intelligence (AI) software will add another layer to protect your data by extending your cyber security beyond IT technology solutions and into the many aspects of human behaviour that result in a malicious or accidental insider threat.

HARRMAN CYBER’S ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, MITIGATES YOUR RISK OF AN INSIDER THREAT

Typically insider threat is managed through User Behaviour Analytics, which means the threat is already in progress. Yet malicious acts occur through a series of layered events, that when left unattended, heighten the risk of a malicious act occurring. In addition, accidental threats also result from a series of events that when linked together result in human error.

Harrman AI Mitigates The Risk Of Insider Threat

Using AI, Harrman’s ‘Five Levels of Contentment to Threat’ model, layers various data sets to isolate when people and teams are moving up the threat scale in order to dramatically reduce a threat from occurring.

CYBER SECURITY INSIDER THREAT: The Greatest Threat to Your Data Could be Your Workforce

Harrman’s Cyber Performance Survey collects data from various industries, countries and workforce layers, and shows a misalignment between what a CEO or CSIO believes the cyber security education levels of the workforce are, against the actual views of the workforce. This is a driving factor in the high levels of insider threat that when addressed will secure companies and nations from future attacks.

Harrman Cyber Performance Statistics Show The Reality:

  • Only 31% of the workforce, believe they are sufficiently trained in cyber policies and procedures (Linked to Accidental Threat)
  • 48% of the workforce believe that there are parts of the company that show signs of a disengaged or demotivated workforce (Linked to Malicious Threat)
  • Only 40% believe there are adequate guidance and support to identify and manage frustrated employees (Linked to Malicious Threat)

The next Cyber Performance Score Quarterly Report will be available 1st December 2017.
