It’s the third threat actor, after SunCrypt and RagnarLocker, that adopt the “Triple Extortion” strategy to increase pressure on malware victims.
The little known Cyber Panic Room becomes a must in protection against cyber attacks. Carbon Black: The surface area prone to attack is becoming too vast for existing static and sparsely deployed preventative controls
There is a good, but little known, protection against cyber attacks: a Cyber Panic Room. The principle is the same of the phisical one. A fortified room, installed in a private residence or business, to provide a safe shelter or hiding plase in the event of an invasion. In this case, systems and network. The cyber security company Carbon Black in a post explains that “creating a panic room around your critical assets, users and sub-nets is imperative in 2018. As corporations continue to deploy additional services and IoT based devices, the surface area prone to attack is becoming too vast for existing static and sparsely deployed preventative controls. A major shift in security spending is necessary to provide improved situational awareness and visibility into the more advanced attacker movements post breach. This spending must be strategic and accompany a tactical paradigm shift from prevention to detection to suppression”.
How to build your safe Cyber Panic Room. You must ensure to create an inhospitable environment for cyber criminals
For Carbon Black the Cyber Panic Room has to have specific features and be built step by step . First of all it’s necessary to create an inventory of the most critical assets and users. Then, you have to conduct a penetration test – whose objective is to destroy those assets. Subsequently you have to deploy Application Control / Iron Boxing on those assets (this is your fortified room) and EDR on all endpoints who have access to those assets (your CCTV and alarm system). You have also to hire an MDR to monitor threats against your environment. “Cyberspace has become punitive – the company concluded -. As destructive attacks flourish and counter incident response becomes mainstream we must ensure that we create an inhospitable environment for cyber criminals. It is time to build your panic room”.
