Know your data so you can protect it

If you don't want employees in your agency to use a USB device, you can install an agent on the laptop that'll block any communication with a USB device. It is one example of a Data Leak Prevention tool, which can help you define the data you're trying to protect from threats within your own network. But that also means you have to know exactly what data it is that you WANT to protect. Khalid Kark of Forrester Research says if you don't know, you can't define it and the DLP tools can't work.

There are also "data leak prevention" tools you can use that'll allow you to create your own parameters that'll block that information from leaving your network.

DARPA wants to stop inside cyberthreat before it starts

DARPA is one agency that recognizes cyber threats are just as likely to come from within the network. The agency has posted a solicitation on Fed Biz Ops looking for what they call novel approaches to insider threat detection. The Defense Advanced Research Agency is looking for a way to increase the accuracy, rate and speed of detection. The Cyber Insider Threat (CINDER) program will stop adversaries from operating within government and military networks before they can get access.
