Beat APTs with a Winning Tag Team
Evolution in threats to computer systems has been an expected factor in the infosec community, just as Moore’s Law was in computing for decades; but in recent years the game has changed. Moore’s Law wasn’t able to keep pace with advancements and the same can be said for traditional infosec defenses.
The greatest threat to most organizations is the rise in Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). These new breed of attacks are complex and often backed by criminal entities with financial gain being the end game. Forbes recently published an article called “As Ransomware Crisis Explodes, Hollywood Hospital Coughs Up $17,000 In Bitcoin”. The title says it all, we are in a crisis and some are ill prepared for an APT attack.
Don't Be a Victim, Be a Hero
APTs use technologies, people, and processes over an extended time to defeat your defenses. If your defenses don’t incorporate those three pieces chances are your data and Intellectual property (IP) are at risk.

- The advancement of APTs
