In the public sector, two pervasive issues contribute to complexity of effective cybersecurity. The first is that security tools are often deployed in silos, and the second is a lack of trained InfoSec professionals in the workforce.
The legal IT landscape is inviting and lucrative to attackers due to the massive amounts of highly sensitive personal and corporate information held by law firms. Threat actors will increasingly target the industry until a serious investment is made in both technological and human capital.
Representing more than 80 percent of attacks today, external threats are one of the most high-profile risks that your organization will face.
But key indicators of a compromise can be found by analyzing your network traffic from outbound connections—specifically traffic coming from an endpoint on your network and connecting through your firewall to something on the internet. Focusing on this threat traffic can give your organization visibility into the early indicators of a threat.
Today’s reality is that your organization will continue to be confronted by increasingly frequent and complex cyber threats.
The Threat Lifecycle Management Framework (TLM) is a series of aligned security operations capabilities.
Advanced threats are methodically evading enterprise security controls and causing major data breaches. These threats may target any organization, so no company is immune.
According to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, cyber security incidents have increased 66% year-over-year since 2009. These attacks and the notion that you may already be compromised indicates that CISOs must make a shift in processes and priorities toward detecting and responding to threats more quickly.
Globally, sophisticated cyber-attacks are compromising organizations at an unprecedented rate and with devastating consequences. These attacks are often very expensive for compromised organizations, costing each company an average of $7.7M.
