Advanced Persistent Threats and the Case for a Security Intelligence and Response Program
As the severity and sophistication of cyber attacks against Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure continues to impact business and government operations, new solutions are necessary to improve the ability to detect and respond.
Through integration of leading edge cyber security assessment tools with advanced heuristics and algorithms, organizations can evaluate and prioritize mitigation. This security intelligence can be used to support automated or human driven response actions that take into account enterprise risk, vulnerabilities, threat activity, and operational or strategic business priorities.
This whitepaper provides a general overview of advanced persistent threats and what needs to be done to address them.
