The harsh reality of advanced security threats
For decades, some businesses have been operating as if they were ostriches and the all-protective sand they hide in were composed of compliance requirements and safe practice regulations. As covert activities today are increasingly attempting to embed themselves within organizations and government institutions by using stealth techniques and exploits, it is time to create a more appropriate and proactive security posture with business-enabling capabilities. Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), the modern, automated versions of traditional espionage, are the cause and the silent perpetrator. Harmful results posed by APTs can be extraordinary and rapidly increasing in scale.
The cyber threat continues to evolve and disguise itself with ingenious techniques to circumvent most traditional information security programs. To mitigate the risks of these advancing threats effectively, organizations should consider evolving their current capabilities to include proactive, continuous monitoring while enhancing existing security practices to leverage cyber intelligence. The future risk-intelligent organization will measure success by demonstrating capabilities that mitigate risk to an acceptable level while being able to demonstrate defined value to the business.
