The Best Defense - by Aaron Shelmire, Threatstream
Today, the topic of Cybersecurity has moved from IT and the Datacenter to the highest levels of the boardroom. Attacks and threats have grown substantially more sophisticated in frequency and severity. Attackers reside within an internal network an average of eight months before they are even detected. In the vast majority of attacks, they compromise user credentials and they are increasingly using legitimate IT tools rather than malware. You are now working under the assumption of a breach. How do you find the attackers--before they cause damage?
In this webcast, we will discuss the TTPs (Tactics Techniques & Procedures) of advanced attackers and how they manifest themselves over the network. We will give a special attention to the Reconnaissance and Lateral Movement phases of the Cyber Kill Chain and discuss how network monitoring can be employed to mitigate these risks.
