Principal Consultant @ FireEye
Organizations are being compromised by advanced attackers every day – often backed by organised crime syndicates and nation states. They target government and private sector organisations alike. These advanced attackers seek to remain undetected so that they can inflict maximum damage or steal data over an extended period of time. They develop custom malware and use tactics that can often be difficult to detect using conventional approaches.
Organisations should not be unresponsive victims to these attacks and keep bleeding until its too late. They should take control and actively hunt for these attackers in their environment. Timely detection can lead to reduction, at times – even prevention of damage caused by attackers present in their environment.
