How to get the better of cyber-criminals

Cyber-threats today have been classified as a top threat for many countries and organisations on a global scale – not just commercially but economically too.

Security experts have revealed that some of the key threats targeting organisations today are malware and human orchestrated attack campaigns. In addition, with the increased reliance of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, organisations have made themselves more vulnerable to IoT-based cyber-attacks…

Ray Kafity, vice-president, Middle East, Turkey and Africa at Attivo Networks, noted that the sophistication and frequency of attacks continue to increase at unprecedented rates, with reports stating that 70 to 90 per cent of all companies will be breached within the next 2 years.

“The biggest threat posed by cyber-criminals today is their ability to remain undetected in the network for months, once they have bypassed perimeter defences,” he said. “New technologies and approaches like deception-based threat detection will be one of the techniques and investments that organisations will adopt to close this gap and strengthen overall defences.”
