Locating the needle in the cybersecurity haystack

Adrian M. Reodique | Oct. 23, 2017
Identifying vulnerable areas of the business can be like finding needle in a haystack. Will threat intelligence reports help?

Kamluk believes that organisations from industries that are most targeted by cyberattacks -- such as governments, military, academy, and banking and finance -- will benefit the most from threat intelligence reports.

"Academies [are targeted] because sometimes they have research made on the grounds from government, and the attackers want to know what researches are being done...and what technologies may be useful to them," he explained. "Then there is a whole, new cluster of target from financial sector which includes casinos, banks, investment firms; they are all being targeted usually by organised crime."

Kaspersky Lab recently revealed that cyberespionage groups in APAC are now going after vulnerable banks in the region to steal money to fund their operations.  

Furthermore, Kamluk underscored the potential impact of threat intelligence reports on cybersecurity awareness should it reach wider market. "The more people read the reports, the more educated they become and the more they know about how these attackers operate, [thus] the more prepared they would be once something is discovered."
