Cyber Security Threats 2016 – Part 2

January 15, 2016

Welcome back! And it’s Friday, I am hopeful your week was successful and productive!  If your organization is concerned about security take a look at the case of APTS – ADVANCED PERSISTENT THREATS .

APT, sophisticated social engineering – such as meticulously targeted phishing – is combined with sophisticated technological tools that can camouflage themselves on networks and relay information back to a central server in order to very explicitly fool an enterprise and steal data.  According to IT association  ISACA , one of four  companies or 28% have already experienced an APT attack.

Internationally deployed and targeted with a specific goal in mind, APTs represent a growing threat, especially to government enterprises. They tend to go a long time without being either discovered or effectively cleaned, leading to very large amounts of top-secret data being stolen of a duration of months, if not years.

It is more critical than ever for cyber security leaders, IT professionals and business owners to have a thorough understanding of these threats, and to be prepared to quickly and effectively respond.”
