Hi peers, I'm looking for recommendations for software to detect insider threats.  Where can I find a pros/cons template (customized to an organization) to source insider threat detection support?

I would suggest statistical methods (including machine learning): First, outlier detection. Then, approaches like “Association rules” (=not statistics to explain all the variance in a dataset but to find out tiny observations): for instance, they are useful for DNA prediction of diseases (one or two SNPs among millions of them), a forensic task. When fraudsters know a tool (a template, a program), the solution is no longer valid. Research is the answer (research software rather than “production” software like in accountability). I mean, research as a step beyond production (only useful in the short term).

This is an inside-out --- outside-in --- inside-in question, as an insider can be an outsider as well. There is no short answer other than a blend of a PAM tool with Behavioral Analytics and Endpoint Management, to protect credentials, govern activities, and detect abnormal activities. I have about 40 questions I would ask before spitting out a single solution. Without knowing more about your environment I would be slow to start throwing possible solutions, as this will take you days to sort out the differing capabilities and features. You can start by looking at the Gartner Quadrants for PAM tools like BeyondTrust, CyberArk, Centrify, Thycotic, MicroFocus and others. If you spear your specific requirements you may miss bigger threats in your circumference, so use a net, and remedy the surrounding threats in this process.
