In Philip K. Dick’s 1956 “The Minority Report,” murder ceased to occur due to the work of the “Pre-Crime Division,” which anticipated and prevented violent killings before they happened. Today, we are only beginning to see the impact of predictive analytics upon cybersecurity—especially for insider threat detection and prevention. Based on user interaction with data, CISOs and their teams emerge as the IT equivalent of a pre-crime division, empowered to intervene before a violation is ever committed. We will examine the technologies which make predictive analytics valuable, along with ethically minded guidance to strike the balance between vigilance and privacy.
