Focus Area: Cyber Defence Center

What is Cyber Defence Center

Today, the Cyber Defence Center (CDC) or Security Operations Center (SOC) is at the heart of enterprise security management. It is used to monitor and analyze security alerts coming from the various systems across the enterprise and to take actions against detected threats. However, the rapidly growing number and sophistication of modern advanced cyber-attacks make running a SOC an increasingly challenging task even for the largest enterprises with their fat budgets for IT security. The overwhelming number of alerts puts a huge strain even on the best security experts, leaving just minutes for them to decide whether an alert indicates a real cyber-attack or is merely a false positive. In fact, the biggest challenge the security industry is now facing is the lack of qualified experts to deal with the growing number of cyber-threats.

To address this massive skills gap, a new generation of security solutions has emerged recently, with vendors focusing on filtering out the statistical noise and bringing the amount of security alerts to a manageable number of alerts categorized by their severity, improving security analysts’ efficiency with intelligent automated controls and, last but not least, on enabling even non-technical persons to make informed decisions and initiate incident response as quickly as possible. From statistical correlation methods to machine learning algorithms, from risk models to behavior profiling, from threat intelligence to cognitive technologies – there is a lot of exciting new developments going on in information security, which promise to dramatically improve the efficiency of your SOC.

There are many technical methods that bad actors can use, such as consumers responding to phishing emails; grafting through fake websites; collection of credentials from keyloggers, rootkits, or botnets; harvesting cookie...

How to Stop Attacker Movement in Your Network Before They Reach your “Crown Jewels”

Nearly all high-impact cyberattacks have a phase in which the attacker must conduct lateral movement from their initial landing point to their ultimate target. To do this, the attacker needs a combination of credentials and available connections between one system and another. This is the evasive process of “living off the land” using the connectivity native to the organization.

Don’t Blame the Cloud for Capital One’s Troubles

After the recent Capital One breach, some commentators have suggested that cloud security is fundamentally flawed. Like many organizations today, Capital One uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) to store data, and it was this that was targeted and successfully stolen. In the case of Capital One it was process, not technology, that failed. The company failed on three points to secure its data properly using the extended tool sets that AWS provides. It relied only on the default encryption settings in [...]
