‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – an EventTracker Story

Christmas Tree

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through HQ

Not a creature was stirring, except greedy Lou –

An insider thief who had planned with great care

A breach to occur while no one was there.

Lou began his attack without trepidation,

For all his co-workers were on their vacations.

He logged into Payroll and then in a flash

Transferred to his account a large sum of cash.

But Lou didn’t realize that what he was doing

Had sent an alert that something was brewing.

And who was receiving this urgent alert?

Why EventTracker’s staff, who are always at work.

While monitoring all of their client locations

EventTracker’s team received notifications.

Their software had noticed some behavior changes

That seemed to fall outside of the normal ranges.

Immediately, they picked up the phone

And rang for Lou’s boss, but no one was home.

But EventTracker’s staff had more than one number.

And Lou’s boss heard his cell, despite being mid-slumber.

During the call, they exchanged information.

And while Lou’s boss called the police station,

EventTracker immediately got to work

Shutting down Lou’s access to HQ’s network.

Lou is now spending his Christmas in jail.

And the money he stole was returned without fail.

As for EventTracker, what else can I say?

This story will be one more Catch of the Day.
