Responding to and Recovering From Sophisticated Security Attacks

Like so many other things in today’s world, cyber attacks—
along with those who perpetrate them—are becoming more sophisticated every year. At the same time, IT resources are moving outside the firewall and enterprises are distributing their applications and data across multiple devices. It’s now clear that simply protecting an organization’s perimeter is not enough. These sophisticated attacks—which include advanced persistent threats, or APTs—are bypassing traditional defenses.

We know all too well how major security incidents can affect a company’s data, networks and corporate brand. We also know that sophisticated attacks, designed to gain continuous access to critical information or to cause damage in critical infrastructure, are becoming more severe, more frequent and more costly.
