Cyber Insurance
Author: Cyber Insurance   Send Email to POC   View Content

Cyber Deception: How to Build a Program
Author: Attivo Networks   Send Email to POC   View Content
With traditional cybersecurity, companies play a cat-and-mouse game to identify, block, and prevent threats. A deception program changes this by giving defenders the ability to learn about attackers in the same way attackers try to learn about their targets. Once an organization knows an attacker is in the network, it can observe the attacker's behaviours and patterns. This background helps security teams better understand what attackers are after and the best way to respond.
