This year’s RSA Conference is a key venue for companies to showcase their new cybersecurity products. Here are some of the more interesting tools to check out. The Informer is a deception-based, real time forensic collection offering that extends Attivo’s ThreatDefend Detection and Response platform. The new tool provides a view of the attacker’s activity to accelerate intelligence-driven response and remediation, enhancing the ability to rapidly gather, understand and disseminate adversary intelligence.

The article provides an overview of how deception fits into information risk management strategies and how organizations can answer C-level ROI questions for justifying deception.
Dealing with cyberattacks on a daily basis has become the reality for businesses today. However, few organisations take a proactive response. Instead, they are left to deal with the fallout after an attack happens and the financial and reputational damage to their business has already occurred. TechRadar Pro spoke with Attivo Networks’ Chief Deception Officer Carolyn Crandall who suggests that businesses adopt the long established military technique of ‘deception’ to help them gain an edge over cybercriminals.
Data stolen in breaches years ago is still surfacing in financial crimes today, proving that getting over past breaches is hard to do. Simply doing more of the same won’t fix our current challenges.Just within the past six months, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been replaced, the White House has eliminated the position of cybersecurity coordinator on the National Security Council, the top three cybersecurity officials at the FBI have departed, several large-scale public sector breaches have occurred – including the City of Atlanta – and the primary elections were off to a rocky start as states and counties grappled with insecure systems and voter distrust.
Deception technology turns the tables on cyberattackers with early and accurate detection and accelerated incident response. Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 14 October 2018: Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception for cybersecurity threat detection, will join Crestan International, a leading value added distributor, at GITEX Technology Week 2018 to highlight the critical role deception technology plays in an active defence strategy.
Written by: Carolyn Crandall, CMO & Chief Deception Officer I always look forward to the Gartner Security and Risk Summit to hear their vision and insights into the future. Last year, I was not as inspired by the back to basics message, as it didn’t provide as much visibility into new innovation as I was seeking. This year was still a little light in the promotion of innovation, though I found usefulness in how they were trying to educate security professionals on what I will call “inspired thinking”.
Written by: Nick Palmer, Attivo Networks Technical Director, Europe I’ve come a long way in my view of more traditional security controls. For the longest time, I labored under the misapprehension that endpoint solutions were just signature based and that SIEM solutions’ primary value was in retrospective analysis of breaches, rather than threat hunting as augmented by relatively novel ideas like User Behavior Analytics (UBA).
