If your organization is under attack, there are many different tactics and tools you can deploy in response. However, cybercriminals are becoming increasingly adept at identifying and responding to corrective efforts, a practice known as incident response.
According to a new report from VMware, most businesses (63%) have had a Response Incident Response (IR) since the pandemic began.
Criminals have deployed several techniques to counter defense mechanisms, including disabling security tools (the most popular one) and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
Since the epidemic began, reports claim that cyberattacks have grown more sophisticated and destructive. Double extortion ransomware attacks, where criminals threaten to reveal encrypted data online once ransom demands are met, were the most popular new technology last year.
All of this has changed the way of thinking among security teams. Not a problem anymore if The attack has begun when. Many have adopted an active mindset, and 81% have threat hunting programs.
“Cyber security is adapting to changing conditions,” said Rick McElroy, senior cybersecurity strategist at VMware’s security division. “The old-fashioned way of thinking is gone. Security teams know they need to change their architecture, adopt a cloud-first mindset, and work together to tackle today’s challenges. The path they chart is a good one.”
