Current cyber defenses cannot keep up with ever-evolving hacker ecosystems. Data breaches, ransomware, and advanced attacks incur considerable financial cost and reputational risk.
In such an environment, cybersecurity personnel need to consider: Do your security solutions adapt as quickly as the hacker trying to defeat them? Can you profile the behavioral characteristics of malicious activity? Are you able to make cyber threat decisions before threats breach your systems?
To prevail against sophisticated actors, advanced cyber intelligence and analytics capabilities can extend an organization’s current security perimeter globally and enable cyber personnel to begin to act on intelligence at the point of interception rather than when the threat is already inside an enclave.
In this on-demand webinar, you will learn from cybersecurity experts developing the next generation of tools and services how to expose and defend against hacker ecosystems.
- Gain insights into the nature and structure of hacker ecosystems
- Understand how an organization can contextualize their unique external cyber environment
- Learn how to detect malicious activity globally at speed and scale
- Recognize how organizations can rapidly attribute events of concern
- Apply the capabilities of Telos® Advanced Cyber Analytics to illuminate the modern cyber threat environment
