What we must understand about internal cyber threats in the utility industry

Overview

The majority of cyber breaches involve an employee system with access. Resolve™ protects employers from insider threats that manifest in distracted workers making mistakes, employees susceptible to bribery and exploitation, and crimes for personal gain. Our system identifies early indicators of behavior risk and enables leadership to consistently and compliantly take appropriate actions.”

The Problem

Many organizations are not equipped for the early discovery of risk because they are not proactively looking; instead, relying upon static, point-in-time background checks and ineffective anonymous hotlines. Organizational silos and incomplete views limited to network activity compound the problem.

The Solution

ClearForce delivers real-time continual “push” based alerting of misconduct and patterns of compounding pressure often identified in financial, criminal, social media, and web-based direct reporting. ClearForce solves the regulatory hurdle to make all information actionable in a single platform.

Challenges

  • 50% of workplace crime directly or indirectly involves an employee.
  • Average cost of workplace crime ranges from $5 million to $8 million per incident.
  • Static pre-hire background checks are not sufficient.

Benefits

  • Continual discovery of pressure, stress and misconduct
  • Protection of privacy
  • Elimination of bias and discrimination

Marcus

Job Role: Security Executive and FSO
Industry: Government Contractor
Needs: Enhanced NISPOM Compliance

Situation

Marcus is responsible for all things related to security clearances. He needs to know of personnel issues that could result in the loss of clearance and jeopardize their government contracts, and he doesn’t want his government customer to be one breaking the news.

Challenge

All of his employees have signed SF-86 forms and are under continual evaluation by the department of defense to hold their clearance.

Solution

Marcus uses ClearForce to backstop the requirements for criminal self reporting and to identify potentially disqualifying financial problems while there is still time to help support his employees.
