Protect your organization against insider threats
Mandiant provides protection against insider threats for all stages of the attack lifecycle. Our purpose-built services assess your existing insider threat program and build effective security program capabilities to stop these threats in their tracks.
Insider Threats Are Among Us
The thought of one of our colleagues consciously undertaking malicious acts to harm or profit from the company we work for is alarming, but the number of incidents in which malicious insiders destroyed critical business systems, leaked confidential data, stalked employees and extorted employers is increasing every year.
34%1 of all breaches in 2018 were caused by insiders, yet less than 20%2 of U.S. organizations possess effective security programs to combat it.
Protecting your organization against insider threats requires more than a data loss prevention solution. It is critical to assess your existing environment and implement effective, continuous security program capabilities to mature your security posture.

Mandiant offers two services that will help you:

Get advanced, continuous expertise and insider threat protection with Mandiant Advantage™.
We do this in two ways. The Mandiant Insider Threat Program Assessment is a point-in-time evaluation of existing insider threats in your specific environment, while Mandiant’s Insider Threat Security as a Service provides an operational security program to ensure effective and continuous insider threat prevention, detection and response.
These services are offered separately but can be combined based on customer needs and scope.
