Numerous studies point to the fact that almost every organisation has suffered a breach and those attacks are getting harder to defend against. Threat protection technologies are extremely useful, but are not by themselves enough. With highly sophisticated attackers looking to bury deep into networks, often aiming to lie undetected to wait for the chance to steal valuable information over time, organisations need a way to root out those security incidents and remediate them so that normal business operations can be resumed.
This document discusses advanced targeted attacks, looking at their stages, and points to strategies for protecting, detecting and remediating such attacks. It is intended for organisations of all sizes in any industry.
