Q&A with Teramind CEO Isaac Kohen.
With employees having access to more sensitive information than ever, companies need the ability to detect and prevent threats from inside, be they through negligence or malicious intent. However, differences between industries and company cultures require more than a one-size fits-all approach. Teramind provides a totally customizable employee behavior monitoring solution to identify suspicious activity, spot possible threats, measure productivity, and ensure industry compliance.
Please tell us a little bit about your background and current position at Teramind.
My background is in software engineering and for IT security consulting. I am the CEO of Teramind, which I founded in 2014. At Teramind we develop state-of-the-art applications for user behavior analysis, insider threat prevention, and session recording.
What are some examples of insider threats?
Insider threats come from employees through malicious activity or just negligence. Not every threat is a user who is evil or has bad intentions. For instance, a person with legitimate access may inadvertently respond to a phishing email and expose their credentials.
