The ability to detect an attack and respond to it quickly can be the difference between a minor incident and a breach that costs resources and reputation. The good news is that organizations are making strides in security breach detection, according to the 2017 Trustwave Global Security Report, which examines the results of thousands of investigations into security incidents. 

When looking at incidents in 2016, the median time from intrusion to detection of a compromise fell to 49 days, down from 80.5 days in 2015. As tools such as managed security service (MSS) providers and artificial intelligence are more widely developed and deployed, the median time between intrusion and detection could fall even further this year.

Here are three strategies to consider when looking to improve detection and response before threats take root and cause damage.

Tuseday, December 19, 2017

Network security is increasingly complex, and busy security teams face the challenge of needing full visibility and threat detection capabilities.

Many of us have the task of connecting our network to trusted vendors and partners. While this will make it easier for business to get done, it can also open us to threats. Remember the Target hack? That was the worst possible result for a point-to-point VPN. Target had set up a VPN between their network and a small HVAC vendor, who only had one IT person on their staff. This was the vector which the hackers exploited to access the Target network.

There are several preventative measures you can take to make your network as secure as possible.
