Vulnerability management is important to an organization’s overall security posture, and many organizations already have an established vulnerability management program. Most of these programs, however, are unable to evaluate and prioritize vulnerability data effectively.
In today’s world, threats are becoming higher and smarter than in the past. Security Teams, which are focused on “traditional” network security, are falling behind cyber attackers, getting overwhelmed by information, and trying to analyze artifacts to determine future scenarios.
Cybercriminals today have evolved their techniques into more complex attacks. These kinds of threats are generally identified as Targeted Attacks and Advanced Persistent Threats. This document is intended to give an overview of how these attacks differ from the others, and provide information on the techniques used to detect and prevent them.
