Threat Intelligence—Key in Attack Mitigation
10 марта 2014
Threats such as targeted attacks will continue to affect them since threat actors will always target information.
Targeted attack campaigns can have different end goals, depending on the threat actors behind them. However, they are often conducted in order to exfiltrate data from a target network.
This category of threats tend to stay hidden in networks for long periods of time, laterally moving across systems and servers to close in on valuable information. This does not, however, mean that threat actors cannot try to become aggressive if the information they are after is somehow time-sensitive.
Even though targeted attacks are difficult to detect in a network, traces and clues can be found that serve as indicators of ongoing attacks or similar attacks in the future.
As such, it is highly critical for enterprises to build their own threat intelligence, which they can incorporate in their security infrastructure in order to mitigate risks targeted attacks pose.
