Incident response strategy has evolved rapidly over the past decade as Cyber attacks are targeted and complex, executed by extremely advanced adversaries who are no longer compromising one or two systems in an enterprise. Rather, they move laterally within the organization’s network in stealth and may present virtually everywhere.
APT, or “Advanced Persistent Threat,” is a kind of stealthy cyberattack. The term traditionally applied to nation-state-sponsored cyber attacks, but in recent years, even non-nation state groups or criminals have been seen to conduct targeted intrusions on a large scale, with specific goals in mind.
Ransomware, true to its name, is a formidable cyber weapon, often deployed to attack organizations in the hope of a large payoff. Ransomware is a particularly devious form of malware that is concealed and disguised as something else, usually an innocuous document.
If you want to win, you need to stay one step ahead of your opponent. You need to know what to expect. You need to predict what their next move could be. The only difference is that the stakes are much higher here. One misstep or one momentary lapse in attention can cost you the whole game. This is why CSM is even more crucial for your organization than it seems at first glance.
End Point Detection and Response (EDR) is a solution which records and stores endpoint-system-level behavior, uses various data analytics techniques to detect suspicious system behavior, provides contextual information, blocks malicious activity, and provides remediation suggestions to restore affected systems.
Cybersecurity today continues to lag behind the emerging threat landscape, even as the threats themselves continue to get more complex and sinister. In that context, what a business needs is advocacy for cybersecurity at the leadership, management, and individual levels.
SIEM or Security Information and Event Management collects, collates, and analyzes activity from a variety of active sources (servers, domain controllers, security systems and devices, networked devices, to name a few) that span your company’s IT infrastructure.
Software programs can have inherent, unintentional flaws or “holes” that can leave them exposed to attack, which gives a cybercriminal a back door to access data that is otherwise secure. If a hacker successfully exploits this “zero-day vulnerability,” the feat (and it is one!) is referred to as a “zero-day attack.”
Cybersecurity is the armor for your business in the digital era, meant to protect your organization’s data from attacks. Since unauthorized access can be attempted both externally and from within an organization, cybersecurity is vital to protect not just data, but also computers, software programs, and networks from attack and damage.
