Modern cyber attacks
Sometimes, your data protection tools may actually be providing a false sense of security. A Venafi survey of 500 CIOs found that they were wasting millions of dollars on cyber security solutions that couldn’t differentiate between malicious and authorized keys and certificates, Information Age reported. As a result, 90 percent of respondents said they expect their organization to be hit by an attack hidden by encrypted traffic or have already experienced one.
When you think of a cyber attack, you might think of a lone person in a dark room slamming away on their keyboard, but this perception has left many organizations vulnerable to sophisticated attacks. Hacking methods are advancing and look much different from the viruses of yesteryear. And even worse, cyber criminals now act as part of syndicates that span the globe and use their deep pockets to fund in-depth attacks as well as the development of new malicious programs.
