5 Ways to Keep Your Organization Safe from Data Breaches

5 Ways to Keep Your Organization Safe from Data Breaches

Data breaches have become so frequent now that it easily gets lost in our daily feed.  Almost every single day, we are witnessing a plethora of data being exposed and published over darknet forums. Nearly 36 billion records were exposed in the first half of the year 2020 (Source: RiskBased). The consequences of such incidents are way beyond financial losses, damaging the brand’s reputation and consumers’ trust. high-profile data breaches, in recent times, have made organizations take a stand and put data security on top priority.

In this insightful information array, we will look at five effective ways on how to prevent data breaches.

  • Vulnerability Management

Companies can mitigate the chances of a successful data breach by employing/outsourcing dedicated experts and tools for vulnerability management. Continuous monitoring of IT assets and security measures help in identifying vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, and fixing gaps before they are exploited by cybercriminals.

 

  • Regular Audits of Security Posture

As compared to vulnerability assessment & penetration testing, Security Audits thoroughly assess and validate the entire security policies of an organization by determining potential new gaps in compliance or governance.

Security audits may end up in common questions, like:

    • Does your organization have documented information security policies?
    • Do you have an incident response plan ready in case of security breaches?
    • Do you have network security mechanisms in place (next-gen firewalls, IDS/IPS, EPP, etc.)?
    • Do you have a security and log monitoring setup?
    • Are there encryption and password policies?
    • Are applications tested for security flaws?

 

  • File Usage & Access Policies

Illegal redistribution and imitation of sensitive corporate information are some of the major factors behind data breaches. It is important to understand that not every employee needs unrestricted access to your network, resources, and other critical assets. Enterprises must define file usage and access policies (can be done through Digital Rights Management solution) to get real-time visibility of data at rest, in transit and at work; limit access to critical data and restrict actions that can be performed by a specific user.

 

  • Multi-factor Authentication

Since threat actors have become more complex and advanced, businesses need to strengthen security by combining additional mechanisms with traditional methods. Passwords are no longer enough to keep accounts secure as hackers can sneak in using methods like phishing, brute force, dictionary attacks, etc.

One of the best ways to keep intruders away is Multi-factor Authentication. It complements existing security methods with additional features where logging in to a system or application requires entering a code, which is sent to your registered mobile number in the form of text. The best part is that the user will not be able to access the requested resource until the confirmation code is entered.

 

  • Training to Employees

More than 90% of cyber attacks or breaches originate from Humans as they are the first line of defence. Hence, it is imperative for organizations to help them understand the basics of how to remain cautious while working and dealing with corporate data. Enterprises can consider training on the following:

    • Usage of various, unique passwords on different systems and devices used for work purposes
    • Implement a documented system for departing employees, vendors and contractors for passwords, key cards, laptop access, etc.
    • Importance of reporting suspicious data security leakage or data security breaches
    • Create a policy that describes how employees should handle, dispose of, retrieve, and send data

Towards The End

Threat actors may evolve and become more complex over time, but basics will remain the same for enterprises to be secure. Following proactive measures and implementing suggested controls can help organizations to prevent data breaches, as well as to safeguard the integrity of their sensitive resources to a great extent.

Feed Your SOC with Advanced Threat Intelligence

Why SOC Needs Threat Intelligence?

Growing security threats and the rising volume of related data are making the job of a Security Operations Center (SOC) cumbersome. In a survey conducted by Ponemon Institute in 2019, 53% of respondents reported that their SOC is ineffective at gathering evidence, investigating, and finding the source of threats. There may be several reasons for it. For instance, SOC professionals go through a heap of tasks that include log monitoring, incident response, compliance, alert management, recovery and remediation, root cause investigation, and much more. As a result of which, the number of tasks SOCs have to deal with is overwhelming, which in turn, making it difficult for the security teams to swim through the flood of alerts and prioritise them accordingly.

Threat Intelligence – Utilizing Different Types of Threat Data

In order to turn the tide, organizations need to provide their SOC with some “threat intelligence” that can act as an antidote to most SOC analysts’ troubles. With the help of Advanced Threat Intelligence, an organization can successfully withstand evolving threats, enable a more productive and engaged workforce, and fill the gap between end-user expectations and experiences, as well as enable SOC teams to work faster and smarter.

Threat intelligence provides organizations with valuable insights into the situational and contextual risks and the knowledge to effectively correlate data from several distinct sources to anticipate attacks before they occur. It helps SOC analysts to address the three most commonly faced issues:

  • Lowering the overwhelming volume of alerts

Due to alert fatigue, SOC analysts are often unable to review and investigate all the alerts on their own. They either chase false positives or ignore alerts.

  • Prioritization of incoming alerts

A major portion of the time spend by SOC analysts goes into responding to alerts generated by internal security systems, such as SIEM or EDR technologies. Determining if an alert is relevant and urgent requires gathering related information (context) from a wide variety of internal system logs, network devices, and security tools, and external threat databases. Searching all of these threat data sources is time consuming.

  • Collection of data from multiple sources to get the finest picture of an event

Threat intelligence provides organizations with valuable insights into situational and contextual risks. These insights are very useful while assessing organizational vulnerabilities and often leads to finding infection vectors as well.

Benefits

Advanced Threat Intelligence plays an important role in improving the effectiveness of the SOCs of organizations of all sizes. It helps in processing the threat data to better recognize the attackers’ TTPs, identify high-risk targets, respond quickly to security incidents, etc. In simple words, it is defined as evidence-based knowledge. With all such information in hand, an organization can tailor its defence and go way ahead of the cybercriminals.

Let’s explore some key advantages of embedding advanced threat intelligence in the first line of defence.

  • Provides in-depth information on what threats are most likely to affect the organization
  • Exposes attackers’ motives and their TTPs to help security teams make better decisions
  • Empowers security professionals to understand threat actors’ decision-making process
  • Helps business stakeholders to invest wisely to mitigate risks and become more efficient
  • Improved focus on protecting high-risk targets
  • Quickens investigations for the incident response team
  • Improves response time and remediation efforts

Towards The End

Modern day’s threat actors utilize tactics and techniques that can wreak havoc in a very short period. These cybercriminals have a far reach irrespective of industry vertical or infrastructure classification. Taking this into account, we must implement a comprehensive threat intelligence program that allows organizations to aggressively address the constantly changing threat landscapes as a combined effort.

THINGS CISOs NEED TO CONSIDER WHILE EMBRACING DECEPTION TECHNOLOGY

Deception is not a new concept for organizations and security professionals. It is being implemented since the late 1990s in the form of “Honeypots”, aiming to deceive threat actors. However, things have now changed to a great extent. Today’s deception technology offers a lot of guarantees, particularly when it comes to early and effective threat detection and mitigation. The best part is that it does not create any false positives and provides deep visibility across all the endpoints.

But to make a successful implementation, CISOs and other C-level executives need to note a few points owing to the secretive nature of the deception technology.

Let’s review these points.

  • Prepare a list of critical assets that you want to protect

You will require a well-defined strategy to achieve your security goals with respect to the deployment of deception technology. List down all the sensitive assets that may include (but not limited to) servers, users, files and databases, which you want to secure against malicious activists. This should be the first step in your action plan while integrating the deception in your security infrastructure.

  • Proactively identify the routes an attacker can follow to invade

As deception is an active defence strategy, it is important for security teams to get a deep understanding of the attackers’ modus operandi. Let your in-house or external red team to launch simulated attacks targeting resources that want to protect. This will help organizations to determine the potential paths a threat actor can utilize to penetrate the network. Also, you can measure the efficacy of your blue team and the deployed deception technology.

  • Be ready with a set of incident response plan

Since deception has a very low rate of false positives and provides real-time alerts, it is vital for organizations to be ready with an incident response plan for responding swiftly to deception alerts. This can reduce the impact of a breach to as much low as possible.

  • Customize the decoys as per your environment

You can maximize the chances of deceiving and catching an intruder by customizing the decoys according to your environment. Turn your network into a trap with realistic-but-fake decoys, breadcrumbs and lures to misdirect attackers into engaging and revealing their presence. By doing so, you are assisting your security professionals to detect an attack in its early stage and gather threat intelligence and indicators of compromise.

  • Ensure that decoys must look real

If a decoy is not fooling you, it cannot deceive any intruder. Make sure the deployed decoys appear as real as possible so that your own in-house/external red team should fall for them during the simulated attacks. The success of the deception technology completely depends upon these decoys.

 

Towards The End

In addition to the most advanced and mature security controls, organizations can employ deception technology to quickly discover what’s lurking inside their environment. Deception has proven to be more effective in detecting in-network threats, lateral movements, privilege escalation, data theft and ransomware, and hence is turning out to be an ideal technology solution.
