DTEX and the Insider Threat Kill Chain

The vast majority of security threats follow a pattern of activity during an attack, and insider threats are no exception. Many security professionals will already be familiar with Lockheed Martin’s Cyber Kill Chain, which outlines the steps that APT attacks tend to follow from beginning to end. Since human behavior is more nuanced than machine behavior, however, insider attacks follow a slightly different path.

Over the course of thousands of insider threat investigations and incidents, DTEX analysts have identified the insider equivalent: the Insider Threat Kill Chain, which encompasses the five steps present in nearly all insider attacks.

DTEX provides organization-wide user visibility that shows you every step of the kill chain, rather than just focusing on the moment of exfiltration.
