Situational Awareness 2018

While most companies are still trying to get their grip on Security measures, putting in place detecting capabilities and setting up SIEM or more advanced threat intelligence systems pumping false positives, Behavioral analytics are now the standard for any self-respecting cyber intelligence platform. The next step is to further improve scientific methods, understanding how to detect intrusions, advanced threats, beyond malware signatures and known vulnerabilities. The objective: being to be able to prevent intruders, malicious actors, internal threats and criminals from stealing data, disrupting business or causing damage of any sort. Moving beyond the hype is where the challenges are. Understanding your environment, the threat landscape and accurately predicting and responding to potential problems that might occur are more than ever crucial in today’s CISO operations. Many technologies have been introduced to support these efforts, but what is the status quo here?
