Unlike other security solutions, Attivo focuses on detecting the threats that have bypassed perimeter security controls, which all determined attackers eventually do. Highly authentic deception traps, along with data, application, and credential lures are deployed to attract an attacker into engaging and revealing their presence. This is quick, efficient, and customers have cited being able to detect and respond to threats in 15 minutes, a dramatic difference compared to the 100+ days of dwell time that many organizations contend with. The solution also adds continuous detection value throughout the phases of the kill chain.
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.

Cybersecurity is a fast-moving field and education has a hard time keeping up. Traditional colleges and universities are often behind the curve when it comes to cybersecurity, so how are future security engineers and CISOs learning the ropes? How will companies find them? And, when they do, how can they determine who truly has the skills they’re looking for? The demand for security talent only continues to rise. In its 2018 Cybersecurity Workforce Study, (ISC)² found the global shortage of security experts has hit 2.93 million. More than 63% of respondents report a lack of security staff; 60% say it puts them at moderate to extreme risk.
No industry is immune to hacking. In this digital age, no organisation can be considered as entirely safe from cybercriminals. As organisations invest in transformational technologies to streamline operations, maximise efficiencies and increase open communications, they are also introducing new gateways for criminals to enter their systems. According to IDC Health Insights 2017, it is predicted that by 2021, the first US$1 million class-action lawsuit against a medical device manufacturer will be filed for negligence due to a cyberattack that led to the death of at least 25 patients connected to a network while in the hospital and the latest example of healthcare facilities falling victim to cyberattacks was the ‘WannaCry’ attack on the National Healthcare System in the UK.
“IoT-enabled device innovation will continue to outpace the security built into those devices and Federal government regulation will continue to inadequately define the laws and fines required to affect change. State-level regulations will be enacted to improve the situation, but will likely fall short in impact, and in many cases, only result in a false sense of consumer confidence with respect to the security of these devices”—Carolyn Crandall, Chief Deception Officer, Attivo Networks.
