Adjusting session risk scoring & threat analytics parameters

Sectona Security Platform uses a combination of users access events (user behavior) and activity events (threat levels) to determine a session risk score. Platform leverages composite risk scoring to determine the overall session risk score used for scoring threat levels for every session.

Risk score are determined basis risk libraries activated & configured and calculated once user session is completed. By default all rules are set with a default risk levels and all events are analyzed using default risk levels.

This section covers:

Understanding Risk Scoring Mechanism

Risk score is calculated by determining the registered events that passes validity criteria set out in risk libraries. To determine a final risk score for a session, system analyzes total events generated during the session and correlates with number of behavioral events (Total Events). Further, system categories events as per then defined criticality level scoring defined in the system & aggregates events &to arrive Criticality level scoring ( Total Events * Criticality Level Weight). Finally, system further determines final risk score by Total Score of Criticality Levels / number of events.
