Breaches are an everyday occurrence. IT security professionals work tirelessly to protect against attackers penetrating their organization’s IT infrastructure, but what about the malicious insider?
Do you ever wonder if users in your organization are poking around where they shouldn’t be?
An easy way to investigate, using out-of-the-box capabilities aligned with StealthAUDIT 9.0 and our Access Information Center (AIC), is to leverage the activity information available via STEALTHbits Technologies:
Step 1) Select any “sensitive” folder (for example HR or Finance)
Step 2) Select the “Activity Details” report within the Access Information Center
Step 3) Select the desired timeframe (our recommendation is 2-4 weeks)
Step 4) Ensure the ‘include subfolders’ option is selected
Step 5) Use the ‘Access’ column arrow and select ‘Denied’
You now have a list of users that have tried to access data outside of their defined role.
