How To Defeat Attackers With Deception Technology
By Steve Cobb, CISO, One Source
As we have seen in the last few weeks, major vulnerabilities are being announced daily. Cisco just released 10 critical vulnerabilities, Microsoft released a potentially devastating DNS vulnerability and Twitter’s verified accounts were hacked…just to name a few. The pandemic and transition to remote working has “refreshed” old vulnerabilities as companies try to offer convenience to remote workers and bypass their normal due diligence. Data breaches are impacting more and more businesses and the cost and reputational damage of a data breach can be detrimental with the potential to put companies out of business.
Why Use Deception Technology
Deception Technology can provide a low-cost, efficient method of determining if an internal or external breach is in process. When deception technology that has been implemented correctly detects an alert, you can be assured that false positives have been eliminated and the alert is real. These technologies can surveille a threat actor while they are going about their business and capture those interactions for enhanced defenses and threat intelligence. This threat intelligence can help an organization understand who is targeting them and how by gathering the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) of an attacker. For a MSSP, like One Source, it allows us to build out rules and protections for our clients from real and current data. These high-quality alerts allow organizations to enhance their prevention and defenses more effectively.
