The Challenge

Advanced threats and sophisticated cyber criminals target a broad range of industries – from financial services or hi-tech firms to civilian government agencies and even retail companies. Insider threats remain; new threats or risks such as hacktivists and medical identity theft emerge. All threat actors have access to underground cybercrime ecosystem tools, such as botnets and exploit kits, which amplify the danger. Whether adversaries are highly sophisticated – or just numerous – it can be difficult to stop them from penetrating the enterprise environment. And it can be even more difficult to detect them once they’re inside. Well-prepared people, robust processes and advanced technologies are needed to meet the cybersecurity challenge.
