Code42 Software integrates its IRM solutions to accelerate response to risky employee behaviors

Code42 Software has launched a new integration between its two IRM solutions – Instructor and Incydr – to accelerate and scale instant response to risky employee behaviors.

The new feature allows security, compliance, and training teams to send corrective lessons triggered by employee actions that create risk to the business.

For example, when the Code42 Incydr product reports a file move to an untrusted location, such as an unauthorized cloud application, a Code42 Instructor micro-learning solution video specifically explaining the correct activity is sent to educate the employee. in real time.

By using Instructor in tandem with Incydr to deliver responsive lessons, security professionals are able to notify users of security errors as they occur.

Template-based communications and the ability to send within Incydr allows analysts to scale and save time when dealing with low and moderate alerts, which are often accidental and where the education is the appropriate response.

With this approach, security teams can spend more time on higher-severity events that pose increased risk to the business while providing a hands-on human experience for their colleagues.

“Just because the vast majority of Insider Risk events are accidental doesn’t mean they won’t impact the business or require remediation. The trick is to react quickly and contextually, without overwhelming your security team. This is the exact reason why we created Instructor Risk Mitigation Trainings and incorporated them as a key response control implemented by Incydr,” said Dave CapuanoSenior Vice President of Product Management at Code42.

“We know that employee training is an essential, and often overlooked, part of holistic insider risk management programs. Delivering instructor courses through Incydr reduces risk in two complementary ways: (1) the majority of employees immediately correct any action they took to trigger the video; and (2) because you gave contextual information, they are more likely to understand why their action was risky, preventing future risky behaviors and reducing data risk events over time,” Capuano concluded. .

Together, Incydr and Instructor enable security teams to manage the dynamic nature of insider risk – which includes prioritizing and responding appropriately to the most significant risks.

While Incydr surfaces key insider risk indicators and collects detailed security intelligence on file movements to trusted and untrusted locations, Instructor provides a one-click personalized response to the majority of insider risk events. ‘initiated.

According to a 2021 survey by Code42 and CyberSecurity Insiders, 71% of security managers said they were most concerned about a crash [negligent or accidental] data leak.

And they are right to worry: insider risk is everywhere and can represent a loss of up to 20% of annual turnover. At a time when employees are exposed to an average of 13 data exposure events per user per day, security teams need scalable solutions focused on contextual education.
