On the modern threat landscape, there is no way to prevent 100 percent of attacks 100 percent of the time. Finding threats is now about meeting attackers head-on in your systems and making decisions based on their behavior. You are essentially playing a poker game, and understanding the “tells” of your attacker will allow you to defend your chips and walk away victorious.
Carbon Black has architected security solutions that monitor cybercriminal behavior. We collect eight to 15 terabytes of data per day from around the globe. The top incident response firms all over the world use Carbon Black technology in at least one breach investigation per day, on average, to identify and contain cybercriminals. That’s a lot of data on cybercriminal behavior. Expert analyses of this data have led to the discovery of distinct patterns in cybercriminal behavior that cybersecurity professionals can now consider when making risk management decisions.
The July 2019 Carbon Black report, Cognitions of a Cybercriminal, provides insight on common cybercriminal attack patterns and a new cyber kill chain model to address them.
