Each industry has different focus points when it comes to cybersecurity. For example, we see that governmental institutions focus most on compliance and meeting regulatory requirements. Financials and insurance organisations already have many tools in place to prevent fraud and brand abuse. Manufacturers, chemical and pharmaceutical organisations worry most about unwanted down-time of production lines, and the retail industry focusses most on risks due to phishing or brand abuse.
But what if criminals hack their way in via your supply chain and gain access to sensitive data? They could encrypt important files for ransom or steal your customers’ credentials and cause a massive data leak. Focusing on one risk type over others will leave you with blind spots elsewhere in your attack surface.
In our video, Eward Driehuis (SVP Strategy) explains how attack surface management provides your organisation with the insights you need to reduce your risk exposure. What is included in the attack surface? How do you manage it, and what results can you expect? Eward illustrates our approach with real-life use cases.
How does automated discovery work?
While your team spends most of their time and effort protecting your known assets, experience tells us criminals most often leverage the assets you didn't know you had. The only way to stay in control over your attack surface is to approach it the same way threat actors do: automated discovery. Having the digital risks detected without a predefined scope helps to eliminate blind spots and reduces risks on a business level. Watch our on-demand video for more insights and best-practices.
