Emerging threats in cyber security

Emerging threats in cyber security

Standard controls are no longer adequate to protect against advanced and aggressive emerging threats in cyber security.

A multi-layered approach to cyber security utilising machine learning and advanced analytics is essential to defend against sophisticated multi-stage attacks including:

Insider Threats | Advanced Human Attacks | Supply Chain Infection | Ransomware |

Compromised User Accounts | Data Loss

Prepare for a cyber security incident or attack and how to adequately manage the aftermath with an organised approach to Incident Response – coordinating resources, people, information, technology and complying with regulations.

Insider Threats

Insider Threats

Insider threat can originate from employees, contractors, third party services or anyone with access rights to your network, corporate data or business premises.

The challenge is to identify attacks and understand how they develop in real-time by analysing and correlating the subtle signs of compromise that an insider makes when they infiltrate the network.

Traditional security measures are no longer sufficient to combat insider threat. A more sophisticated, intelligence-based approach is required. Cyberseer uses machine-learning technology to form a behavioural baseline for every user to determine normal activity and spot new, previously unidentified threat behaviours. The move to a more proactive approach towards security will enable companies to take action to thwart developing situations escalating into exfiltrated information or damaging incidents.

Catch insider threats and imposters that elude other security products.

Advanced Human Attacks

 

Advanced Human Attacks

Advanced threats use a set of stealthy and continuous processes to target an organisation, which is often orchestrated for business or political motives by individuals (or groups). The “advanced” process signifies sophisticated techniques using malware to exploit vulnerabilities in organisations systems. They are considered persistent because an external command and control system is used to continuously monitor and exfiltrate data from the specific target.

Distinguishing between an employee going about their normal work and an imposter impersonating an employee can be challenging. Understanding the attacker artefacts such as file names and data transfers can help a security team gain visibility of affected systems and devices on the network. Cyberseer uses smart technology in conjunction with a variety of research and analysis techniques, to determine when a user is exhibiting unusual and risky behaviour. Track user behaviour wherever it leads – across devices, VPN connections, source IP address, account names, geographies and credentials.

Kill advanced threats in their tracks before they gain a foothold in your organisation.

Supply Chain Infection

 

Supply Chain Infection

The supply chain is the silent threat that can lead to loss of sensitive customer information, disruption to manufacturing process and damage to the company’s reputation. The security of any one organisation is only as strong as that of the weakest member of the supply chain. Criminal organisations operate a sophisticated information gathering exercise to understand the supplier network associated with a target. They identify the organisations with the weakest security within the supply chain and gain access to either the target company or other members of the supply chain.

Supply chain attack threat poses a significant risk to modern day organisations and attacks affect all industries with a complex supply network.

Cyberseer look at the potential weaknesses in the supply chain by monitoring the actions of users and attack vectors those vulnerabilities could introduce. Track user behaviour across devices, VPN, connections, source IP addresses, account names, geographies, and credentials to secure supply chain systems.

Assess whether your supply chain is safe from cyber-attacks

Ransomware

 

Ransomware

Ransomware is making headlines – lurking in ads on popular websites and shutting down hospitals. It enters a network and moves undetected from system to system using asymmetric encryption to hold a victim’s information at ransom. Ransomware is a highly persistent and organised criminal activity in full deployment with ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) at its core. Having advanced steadily in sophistication, the prevalence of Ransomware is now wide spread and by the time of detection it’s too late.

Using intelligent defences, Cyberseer detect anomalous behaviour and apply research-driven knowledge of ransomware file-extensions, names, etc. to determine whether anomalous activity matches the characteristics of known malware.

Early detection enables Cyberseer customers to prevent disruption to business operations and data security. Safeguard your operations with early detection using an advanced endpoint security tool that provides prevention as well as a unique journaling approach to this invasive threat.

Detect ransomware before it disrupts your organisation.

Compromised User Accounts

 

Compromised User Accounts

Privileged users such as database or system administrators have escalated access rights meaning they are prime targets for hackers. In addition, the increasing adoption of virtualisation, cloud services and big data implementations creates new layers of administration access privileges expanding organisations risk of compromise.

With Cyberseer’s suite of security solutions and threat intelligence organisations can gain the comprehensive, robust, and granular controls they need to detect unusual behaviour within privileged and shared accounts and guard against abuse of privileged user access.

Guard against the risks posed by privileged users and compromised credentials.

Data Loss

 

Data Loss

Data loss and theft is a major concern for organisations today. Cyber criminals target data for its inherent financial value (credit card details), its economic and competitive value (manufacturing designs) or political insights (classified documents).

Once an attacker gains a foothold within your organisation they potentially have the ability to extract and change data without being detected. Ensuring data integrity is essential for businesses.

Today’s challenge has shifted from the unrealistic goal of total information security to developing the ability to identify the aspects of your information infrastructure that are in jeopardy of being attacked. Cyberseer fuses machine-learning technology and the knowledge of skilled Analysts to identify unusual movements of data and files across your network. Anomalous data transfers and file amendments are interpreted to determine threat severity and the organisation’s associated risk.

Detect and prevent confidential and sensitive data from being accessed for unauthorised use.

Incident Response

 

Incident Response

Incident response teams face challenging times with growing numbers of incidents, the escalating cost of cyber-attacks and increasing demand for skilled employees.

By leveraging metrics and analytics, organisations can continually evaluate and improve their incident response abilities and react more quickly, effectively and intelligently to cyber incidents. Cyberseer uses smart incident response technology that enables our customers to thrive in the face of cyber attacks or business crisis.

Take an organised approach to using best practise in the face of a security breach.

Limit the damage and reduce recovery times and costs with the best in-class response capabilities.
