Researchers explore 'insider threats' from computer network users who access prohibited info

New research by Jingguo Wang, associate professor of information systems and operations management, and Raghav Rao of State University of New York at Buffalo aims to combat insider threats by mapping out the spots in systems that are most vulnerable and developing counter measures aimed at mitigating those threats.

The study is supported by two grants totaling $500,000 from the National Science Foundation’s Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace initiative. It is one of the first large-scale studies of how insiders behave on a network that allows them to view sensitive information.
