It seems like almost every week there is a new security breach in either the government or in private business. The latest had nothing to do with China, instead it appeared to be more of a revenge attack by one baseball team on another.
Often, the focus becomes firing whoever runs the security effort. However, there is a technology that’s been on the market for some time called UBA, or User Based Analysis or User Based Analytics (depending on which vendor you are talking about) that could help prevent such major breaches. But it isn’t widely deployed because companies, IT organizations and security teams have apparently wrapped their heads around the idea that perimeter security is a fantasy, it simply isn’t working and likely hasn’t ever.
