Staying ahead of your attackers
Adversaries nowadays are highly skilled, highly motivated, well-organized, and well-funded. Their motives range from information theft for financial gain, political gain to warfare and destruction. The stakes are high and therefore your organization’s security should be on point.
When we outline the current situation, we see a lot of companies using old, mostly prevention-based solutions like antivirus, old-school SIEM, and firewalls. They often use fact-based rules which makes it probable scenarios are missed out. This didn’t help prevent the immense growth of sophisticated malware and ransomware. Even worse, these bunch of old technologies generate alarm fatigue. Cybercriminals use this, for instance by creating a lot of malicious traffic, which generates an overdose of alarms so that the alarms triggered by the real attack aren’t seen by the analysts.
Organizations have to catch up fast on all fronts in a rapidly changing environment, where knowledge, technology, policies, and regulations are evolving almost daily. To ensure this, it is a good idea to have ‘threat hunting’ as a part of the security specialists’ daily job. They need to actively search for IOCs in the environment to see if something malicious or unwanted is going on within the infrastructure. The issue is that security experts are expensive and scarce. Therefore they have to be able to work efficient, effective and engaged. That’s where Cybereason and Kahuna Managing Security step in.
