Don't Let Cyber Attackers Get to You!

By CIOReview | Tuesday, June 25, 2019

There are countless methods to improve the security structure and spot threats despite the fact that SIEMs are traditional methods, it is still crucial for organizations with skilled security workers to utilize them.

FREMONT, CA: Technology evolves, and along with it, cyber attackers also adopt new malicious techniques and tools to invade into the system, to which the cybersecurity designers need to build creative ideas to detect and block the potential threats. The appropriate platform, intellect, and company can help in eliminating the exposure to risks and improve the security structure.

Cybersecurity Challenges:

Cybersecurity has been a concept of inside vs. outside, but the evolution of laptops, mobile devices, connecting networks, and cloud computing have worn the idea of having any secured perimeter. As a result, most attacks have valid credentials that make them appear to be legitimate users.

The intricacy of the IT infrastructure, which had a hybrid cloud environment leads to incorrect reading and other human faults responsible for inviting unnecessary risks to the network. Meanwhile, predators have been adopting ML and AI to automate the process of increasing attacks and escaping detection from the eyes of the system.

Strengthening Cybersecurity:

While it is not possible to have a completely safe system with cybersecurity technology, there are a handful of methods to avoid threats and risks to a considerable extent and strengthen the level of complexity for the attacker.

Evaluate and then Implement:

The selection of a suitable threat detection method can tackle workloads without any obstruction by following the terms and prerequisite actions of the system.  It can help collect metadata to pursue events as soon as they pass through the dynamic environment.

Remove Liabilities:

The use of vulnerability assessments to spot and remove weaknesses before the network is attacked is considered a vital action along with evaluating the entire load of the application, including code and third-party cryptogram.

Collection of Data:

With the collection of all three kinds of data, namely web, log, and network, the system will be able to examine as well as detect any suspicious activity taking place. Every data type carries a unique strength that it uses to identify uncalled threats and gives a better understanding of the risk with greater precision.

Employing Analytics:

It is essential to ensure that the threat detection methods consider both real-time and historical events across time besides, Machine Learning (ML) can help in figuring out what exactly the issue is all about.
