The next phase in continuous cyber defense and what it means

An interview with Kim Watson, Technical Director of the Integrated Adaptive Cyber Defense (IACD) initiative at JHU APL

Is it possible to get access to, and process all the relevant information available, to improve cyber defense? The threat landscape continues to evolve, new and ever more sophisticated TTPs (tools, techniques and procedures) are utilized by adversaries while cybersecurity teams have a new arsenal of AI/ML and orchestration tools, that may offer relief for overwhelmed security staff whose efforts are gaining increased attention by the c-suite.

The Latest Verizon Data Breach Report: Your Data is Gone Within Minutes

Posted by MantisNet on Apr 27, 2018 2:02:51 PM

Verizon released its latest Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR) highlighting the latest trends in malware and cyber crime, covering 53,000 incidents and 2,216 confirmed breaches. The report reveals that botnets are the most widespread, dangerous attacks to date. The number of botnet attacks reported was so numerous that all 43,000 breaches (mainly on financial data) were excluded from overall statistics and given a separate section of its own. With botnet breaches on the rise, Verizon's report confirms that monitoring network traffic is more important than ever.
