  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

#cpfield Adding custom groups to GI Risk Event calculation

Add “risky user groups” or custom groups to risk event calculation — Sample use case -- Employees who failed internal phishing tests are less “security-conscious” and they are considered ”risky user group” in the company.  Perhaps their clientIPs or usernames are easier to be compromised via phishing attacks. Access to sensitive objects / risks by those risky user groups / clientIPs be in the future GI risk event calculations.

    We need more information on this idea. We have a Risk Engine which takes in a variety of data sources and calculates Risk. We also have analytics which looks for deviations in normal behavior. We also consider user activity in the risk calculation. For example, administrative activity. I need to understand the desired outcome from this idea.

    - Do you want the analytics to ALWAYS look at this group of users?
    - Do you want to heavily weight the group of users in risk calculations?
    - Do you want to temporarily consider this group of users risky or are they always risky?
