Abstract

With the increase in volume, heterogeneity and uncertainty in data, conventional analytics approaches for monitoring users behavior in organisations are no longer sufficient for the effective and reliable detection of malicious activities. This motivates the need for introducing additional analysis techniques. This paper introduces an intelligent fusion method based on fuzzy aggregation functions typically utilized in multi-criteria decision making. The proposed method, which can be integrated with analytics systems, undertakes temporal and multi-criteria fusion processes on pre-analyzed data, to enhance effective monitoring and decision-making. An application to a prominent area of research in the cyber-security domain, the insider threat problem, is shown to validate the usefulness of our method.
