Threat Hunting – Gazing the Crystal Ball
They either say “you are hunted or will be soon” in the cyber security world.
Cyber-attack is unfortunately a reality which every organization irrespective of its size has to be ready to face it. The question is ‘When you are attacked are you ready to handle it?’ The answer is, you need to be ‘aware’ first, aware by getting the right knowledge and combine that with tools and educating user behavior to protect information assets within your enterprise from being compromised. Enterprise environments will never be 100% protected, but can we make life difficult for attackers? and if God forsaken you get hit, how soon you can respond, remediate and recover. So, what’s the best step forward to achieving this – Threat Hunting !!!! First to sanitize your environment and then to keep an eye on everything that’s coming in and going out of your environment to stay protected.
Threat Hunting is a proactive step towards finding out adversaries across your IT landscape to identify and quarantine systems which might have indications of compromise in them. Scan every information asset and getting assured of it being safe is the first step in the direction. With employees working from home and having weaker cyber security infrastructure than operating from office, its critical to periodically perform these scans. Get assured as soon as you can and assure all stakeholders that you are resilient.
With Covid-19 pandemic hitting the world and with work from home becoming inevitable, Enterprises need to be more careful about their cyber risks. Like the way, work space environment needs to be sanitized today for safety, information assets also needs to be sanitized periodically to make sure that nothing is compromised. The impact if happens due to breach can be devastating and cause major disruptions to be services rendered to your customers and lose their confidence in your protecting them and also have compliance issues with statutory authorities leading to penalties.
Cyber risk is for real and can have significant impact on the enterprise if breach happens and the challenges are wide ranging. You are never done as far as securing your assets are concerned. There is no end or beginning to this effort and has to be done all the time as long as enterprise exists.
We all have to be in this together to protect our information assets from attackers while working from home or office or even from a cafe. Get your assets protected and to know more on how to make this happen, connect with us on firstname.lastname@example.org
