What does effective attack surface management look like?

In recent blog posts we’ve discussed the need to understand how your attack surface affects your risk and highlighted three areas that regularly slip under the radar when trying to analyse the true extent of that attack surface. The answer to both these challenges is attack surface management, and in this blog we’re going to focus on what that looks like.

3 Constantly Evolving Areas of Risk Your Organisation Could Be Overlooking

Understanding your organisation’s attack surface and why it poses a risk

Your attack surface is the sum of the exposed and internet-facing assets, and the associated risks a hacker can exploit to carry out a cyber-attack. Over the past decade or so, that attack surface has changed dramatically. Long gone are the days when the only things exposed to the outside world were your website and your mail server. Today, increased complexity means that many financial services organisations often have huge attack surfaces – in fact, we believe that the attack surface has grown by around 1000% in the past 10 years.

Attack Surface Management in External Threat Intelligence

Every IT Security team needs access to some sort of Threat Intelligence (TI). It is an umbrella term for the collection of information and data on security risks and the threat actors behind them. Together, this information helps to prevent or limit incoming threats, and provides insights when mitigating an incident or event in Incident Response scenarios. As a deepening of the topic, External Threat Intelligence (ETI) mainly focusses on the combination of internal risk data with threat intelligence originating from outside of the organisation.
