A cyber security risk that comes from within an organization is referred to as an insider threat. Insider threats might be carried out purposefully or accidentally. Whatever the motivation, compromised enterprise systems are the ultimate results.

Organizations can stop potential insider threats in their tracks by deploying deterministic rules and machine learning for identifying abnormal behaviors.
