Many will advocate that the cybersecurity battle is fought at the endpoint. Completely secure these devices and the attacker will not be able to advance their attack. This belief has fueled a new interest and focus on moving from endpoint protection (EPP) to endpoint detection and response solutions (EDR) as well as managed detection and response (MDR) solutions. The threat landscape is rapidly changing, and organizations’ defenses need to change with it. The latest generation of sophisticated attackers have proven that they can evade anti-virus solutions and bypass traditional perimeter defenses. Given their ability to routinely compromise networks, it has become more important than ever to layer in a “Defense in Depth” strategy that includes prevention, detection, and response. In many cases, predictive measures are also becoming a factor, increasing the need for collection of threat intelligence, which may have been discarded with prior prevention-only approaches.
Attacks on Point-of-Sale (POS) systems continue to occur at staggering rates and retailers remain exposed as vulnerabilities in point-of-sale systems afford weak links for attackers to exploit. According to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR), of the more than 53,000 incidents examined, 2,216 were confirmed data breaches. The Gemalto Breach Level Index, shows retail at 11% of all breaches in 2017, in 3rd place, only slightly behind Financial at 12%, and Healthcare at a staggering 27%. These findings underscore that cybercrime continues to have a far-reaching impact on businesses across all regions and industries and retail remains squarely in the attacker’s cross-hairs.
Researchers from the U.K.-based penetration testing service Pen Test Partners recently attacked a video surveillance system, and they pulled off a fairly scary feat. “We successfully switched video feeds from one camera to another through the cloud service, proving arbitrary access to anyone’s camera,” they wrote. That pen test is even more concerning when you take into account the fact that the world is in the midst of a widespread proliferation of video surveillance equipment among both private citizens and enterprise security users – which, in fact, we are.

The patterns of cyber attacks are well known and so are the targets.
