Cyware: Powering your security through Situational Awareness
The task of cyber security professionals is very arduous. Even one small breach can have serious consequences for an organization. It can result into damage to credibility that is earned over a long period, fall in stock prices that can have immediate impact on the company finances, and loss in market possession. There can be more serious consequences such as loss of sensitive data that might involve insider decisions, trade secrets, financial information etc. To prevent falling victim to a cyber attack, a continuous effort is required on part of security professionals. Given the sophisticated nature of threats and the huge number of threat actors, the cyber security professionals need to be on their toes all the time. For an attacker, it takes just one breach to get him the treasure trove of data, whereas for the security team all attacks need to be prevented to keep the treasure trove safe and secure with them. In such a scenario, a single second delay in threat intel can have serious consequences. The basic rule is “the earlier you know about the threat, the earlier you act and the safer you are”. The new paradigm of cyber security suggests that the key to “Threat Intelligence” is cyber awareness.
