The cyber attack lifecycle
The traditional approach to cybersecurity has been to use a prevention-centric strategy focused on blocking attacks. While important, many of today’s advanced and motivated threat actors are circumventing perimeter based defences with creative, stealthy, targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected for significant periods of time.
In response to the shortcomings of prevention-centric security strategies, and the challenges of securing an increasingly complex IT environment, organisations should be shifting their resources and focusing towards strategies centred on threat detection and response. Security teams that can reduce their mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) can decrease their risk of experiencing a high-impact cyber incident or data breach.
Fortunately, high-impact cyber incidents can be avoided if you detect and respond quickly with end-to-end threat management processes. Read article here
