PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Abacus was developed after several years of running a data loss prevention program that included employee exit reviews & internal investigations. Using intelligence & data we developed an indicator based correlation methodology that looks at real time activity of each user to produce risk based alerts, mitigating the loss of intellectual property. Using machine learning algorithms the tool is designed so each user is automatically creating their own risk baseline as a result of their activity. Any correlated risk indicators that deviate more than 1 standard deviation of risk from their baseline results in an alert for human investigation.

INDUSTRY: Aerospace and Defense Industry
