Phishing schemes have been top attack vectors for the past several years; they are 'tried and true' methods that generally result in a high level of success for attackers, granting them access username and password details, bank accounts, social security numbers, email addresses, other sensitive information. As such, it is expected that the number of phishing attacks will soon surpass that of web-based application attacks.
While the definition and scope of risk management are wide-ranging, effective risk management is a product of taking a very specific set of measures. Without tailoring risk management efforts to meet our precise needs, we are left with generic “best practices” that may or may not be effective in a given scenario. These nonspecific practices are what lead to the gaps between risk management theory and risk management practice.
Deception Technology lures attackers to strategically placed, heavily-instrumented decoys throughout the network. When an attacker trips over one of these decoys, the solution is triggered to begin generating reports and recording the attacker's actions, providing reliable forensics to see what attackers are doing and where they are going in the network.
The DarkTrace Enterprise Immune System solution uses Artificial Intelligence (AI systems) and unsupervised machine learning to understand what is normal in your network, and subsequently detect and respond to anything abnormal; this is not end-point security or perimeter-based security - it is situated at the core of the network, providing raw data and protecting against attacks coming in through any kind of computing devices.
