Threat Intelligence

Signature based intrusion detection is one of the most commonly used methodologies of threat intelligence, but it is not effective on all types of threats, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities.

Accidental data leakage

This is also called a Data Breach, when sensitive data is transmitted or viewed by an unauthorized individual.

Malware

Trojans, ransomware, office-gated malware, worms, viruses, etc.

Identity Theft

Falsely using someone else's private information for personal gain.

Malicious access of data

An employee's device ( personal devices) has been misplaced or stolen, exposing private data.

Insider Threat

Stealing sensitive corporate data for business advantage or personal gain.

Weak passwords

Single points of verification like passwords can easily be bypassed by savvy hackers.

Social engineering

Hackers manipulate employees into installing malware on their own systems.

Loss/corruption of data

The integrity of your data has been compromised somewhere in the writing, reading, storage, transmission, or processing cycle.

Misconfigured systems

A web server, app, or plug-in has been misconfigured in a way that inadvertently leaks info or allows hackers an entry point into your business's software or OS.

Outdated operating system

Operating systems advance annually to adapt to new security needs.

Lack of encryption

Not encrypting your data is the equivalent of leaving your wallet in an unlocked car with the windows down.

Equipment failures

Hackers locate a flaw, glitch, or weakness in your business's software or OS and create exploits to target those vulnerabilities.

Unpatched vulnerabilities

Vulnerabilities arise with every software addition to your environment.

Untrained employees

No security feature can account for human error.
