Security is an ever-evolving threat landscape. Even with the best in-breed security systems, there is still a possibility that your company is at risk. This whitepaper covers the 8 important things CIOs need to know about whaling and some useful tips they can use to protect their organisation from being held ransom to such attacks.
Prevent major data breaches by reducing time to detect and respond to threats.
You can lessen your organisation's risk of experiencing a damaging cyber incident or data breach by investing in effective Threat Lifecycle Management. Although internal and external threats will exist, the key to managing their impact within your environment and reducing the likelihood of costly consequences is through faster detection and response capabilities.
As Sub-Zero Group, Inc grows and the network becomes more complex, the inhouse IT security staff remains lean. For the IT security team monitoring the network, it was becoming too cumbersome to work with separate device logs and monitoring tools. They couldn’t extract the information on network activity quickly or easily. Setting up a solution with LogRhythm has significantly improved the efficiency of Sub-Zero’s security operations.
This research project was undertaken in order to evaluate the current practices and challenges associated with incident response processes and technologies. Respondents were also asked to provide details on their organisations’ future strategic plans intended for improving the efficacy and efficiency of IR activities.
Data breaches constantly threaten the modern enterprise. And the risk continues to grow: In 2015, the total number of identities exposed via data breaches increased 23%, to 429 million. Time-to-compromise is now measured in minutes, and data exfiltration happens in days.
Worse still, detecting a breach can take months, with a median of 201 days to discovery. Unable to quickly respond, organisations risk exposing valuable data and confidential information. The recovery process can be incredibly expensive and the damage to the business reputation incalculable.
The way in which people work has changed. The mobile workforce is a reality. Yet while new ways of working bring many benefits, they demand a new approach to security.
For instance, how do you secure your data and applications on the internet? What happens if a device gets stolen? How do you ensure documents are secure if they are used in public environments? Can you provide quality technical support to users who are working from home? How will your employees ensure that their work and private information remains separate?

The criminals, hacktivists, and others trying to breach corporate cybersecurity are just like anyone else: they want to accomplish their mission as efficiently as possible. So why focus on compromising an organisation's access device or infrastructure? That’s not where the action is.
Advanced threats today target what is on either side of those systems: the user sitting at the keyboard, and the corporate data he or she has access to as part of the job. The goal for the attacker is to compromise identities, impersonate legitimate users to glide past security controls, find valuable data, and glide back out undetected.
