By: Carolyn Crandall Last week, Attivo Networks participated in The Information Systems Security Association (ISSA)® event in San Diego, CA. With the theme of “the Digital Danger Zone,” the conference focused on topics ranging from incident response to application security to business skills for the information security professional. Apart from educational forums, publications, and peer interaction opportunities, ISSA hosted a capture the flag (CTF) event, which is always a fun way to test one’s practical information security knowledge. This year, Attivo participated in the CTF as well as a speaking session, Cybersecurity of Interbank Messaging and Wholesale Payment Networks.
Capture The Flag
Attivo Networks announced industry validations that Attivo Networks deception effectively fools attackers. Validating deception’s ability to serve as a reliable security control for closing in-network detection gaps, the company has released results of a penetration test conducted by a top computer forensics company that specializes in penetration testing, announced the ThreatInject simulation tool for testing deception resiliency, and is embedding deception into the ISSA International Conference Capture the Flag (CTF) event. By creating an authentic synthetic network based on deception, organizations change the asymmetry on attackers by placing high-interaction traps and lures that efficiently reveal an attacker’s presence.
