Patrick Knight is Senior Director of Cyber Strategy and Product Management at Veriato. For over 17 years Patrick has worked for major security leaders developing products and guiding online security policies, including encryption, network intrusion detection and anti-malware threat protection technologies. At Veriato, he is helping organizations across the globe protect sensitive data from risks posed by insiders. Prior to entering the online security industry, he spent 12 years in national security in the U.S. Intelligence Community.
Patrick joined me to speak about insider threats and discuss some of the findings in the recently released Insider Threat Program Maturity Model report by Veriato. The report provides insight into how organizations today are addressing the threat of insiders. By looking at how factors like program support, budget, the presence of a formal team, and privacy impact program maturity, this report can provide a better understanding of what conditions are necessary to achieve the most effective program possible.
The Insider Threat Program Maturity Model provides organizations with a way to benchmark their current ability to monitor, detect, mitigate, and respond to insider threats. The Maturity Model also helps to determine a path to further mature the existing program towards a metrics-centric, optimized program.

This episode is on Dataminr, a New York-based startup, which is authorized to analyze the entire Twitter “Firehose” of all live tweets and offer clients advanced social media analytics as a service in the form of digests and news updates.
Exclusive access to information and data feeds, which include Twitter’s raw live tweets, allows Dataminr to filter the data to identify important events and business trends as they unfold and also act as an early warning system for major events like terrorist attacks, natural disasters and other public emergencies.
Dataminr is Twitter’s only data partner that is also allowed to resell the complete stream of tweets and their clients include large hedge funds, mainstream news outlets, public relations firms, publicly traded corporations and major government entities including, law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
The DHS, FBI, and CIA have used the service to help with tracking criminals and terrorists, but have also drawn the ire of the ACLU, who have challenged the use of Dataminr’s services by government agencies to monitor domestic protests.
