As one of the most digitally connected countries in the world, the United States is incredibly vulnerable to a range of cyber attacks. Adversaries use a variety of stealthy techniques, including sophisticated advanced persistent threats or "APT's." APT's are very difficult to detect once inside a network as they employ a high degree of covertness over extended periods of time. Worse yet, they are becoming more common as the socially engineered spear phishing techniques used to initiate these attacks are becoming more personalized to human targets; spoofing even the most savvy users and allowing malware to infiltrate, obfuscate and exfiltrate your most sensitive data.
CISO’s wage a 24/7 defense, working to keep potential threats out of their system while listening for those subtle system anomalies indicating they may already have an APT intruder.
This Webcast explores the critical issue of how best to equip your agency with powerful cyber and big data analytics to spot even the most inconspicuous network activities and identify and isolate threats, investigate intrusions, and prevent future exploits.
