Advance Security: When Walls Are Penetrable
While many SecOps professionals focus on keeping cyberthreats at bay with breach-prevention, threats to security are constantly evolving around us. Nearly 80% of organisations reported data breaches in 2016, with a third of those reporting more than six breaches. Of that same group, less thanone-third anticipated an attack. This optimism – does not reflect the facts. More and more, attackers are using new tactics to circumvent pre-breach security measures. In fact, one report found that 60% of attacks – did not use malware at all. They now exploit a combination of weaknesses to infiltrate and hide inside operating systems striking from within.
