Secure Critical Systems and Intellectual Property Against APT

Protect yourself from being boarded and raided by cyber privateers.

Onsite Workshop

Weak or misallocated security resources will fail miserably.

  • Normally, being better defended than the person next to you would work. Not anymore. APTs target specific enterprises no matter the security measures in place.
  • Allowing an APT intrusion to occur in your organization could risk its competitive advantage due to theft of IP or disruption of functional capabilities.
  • Huge potential costs result from mediating the intrusion due to cleaning networks or systems, changing credentials, legal issues, regulations, security audits, public loss of confidence and reputation damage.

A comprehensive APT security strategy helps you:

  • Develop proper risk assessment to know why you’re at risk and when there is a threat.
  • Provide visibility into what is really happening on your network.
  • Enable proper detection capabilities for your network.
  • Build proper preventative defenses to block out attacks.
  • Create remediation plans for when an attack does occur.
  • Improve continually with upkeep to provide sustainable security.

Module 1: Assess and Grade Current APT Security Measures
