How to Protect Your Business by Limiting Attack Dwell Time
Security breaches and cyberattacks are a constant threat. Network and security teams must take proactive steps to protect their systems from these attacks, but it is difficult to stay ahead of the malicious actors. Instead of solely relying on prevention, it is important to have plans in place to quickly identify a breach, and minimize the amount of time the malicious actors have access to the system, known as dwell time. Having an effective plan in place to identify a breach and reduce the dwell time is essential to protecting the system from the malicious actors. By having an effective plan in place, the malicious actors have less time to cause damage and access sensitive information. Additionally, quickly identifying and disabling a breach can help limit the amount of damage caused and reduce the likelihood of a successful attack.
In this whitepaper “How to Protect Your Business by Limiting Attack Dwell Time”, you will discover a strategy to reduce the impact of a breach and strengthen existing security initiatives with integrated threat analysis.
Malicious actors may be a step ahead but being proactive and prepared can help to limit the damage they can cause. By having a plan in place to anticipate and respond to malicious activities, companies can protect their systems, finances, reputation, and customers. This could include regularly applying security patches, using multi-factor authentication, and monitoring for suspicious activity. Additionally, companies should have a plan for responding quickly and effectively to any security incidents. This could include having a team dedicated to responding to cyber threats, as well as developing a communication plan to keep stakeholders informed.
