The staff of the House Permanent Select Committee On Intelligence has invited Chris Kauffman, Personam’s Founder and CEO, to brief them on Personam’s insider threat detection capabilities. In the wake of the high-profile Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden events, and the Presidential Memorandum on National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs, the staff is interested in learning how existing practices like background checks and training & awareness programs can be supplemented with advanced technology for the continuous monitoring of the workforce.
Personam is the leading innovator using advanced analytics and machine learning to detect insider threat attacks in-progress. Personam’s appliance provides passive network monitoring without the dependence of endpoint software agents or pre-defined event input data. Often installed and operational in less than an hour, Personam continuously monitors the behavior patterns of the users and devices on the network. The moment a threat is detected, analysts in Personam’s monitoring center are notified and aid the client with incident response. Personam’s headquarters and research labs are located in McLean, VA.
