Cyber Situational Awareness: Perceiving the Imperceptible

Cyber Situational Awareness: Perceiving the Imperceptible

Share Blog Post

Roderick Vincent quotes in The Cause, “In the underworld, reality itself has elastic properties and is capable of being stretched into different definitions of the truth.” The underworld here refers to the cyberspace while the truth is subject to the one who wields the power to mold its elastic nature to derive benefits. The truth is imperceptible but the reality is not! Reality is non-transient, uncompromising and immutable. The reality speaks of itself through objective facts, and events occurring in the real-time. So how do we perceive the reality? Through - Situational Awareness! And once, we succeed in perceiving the reality, we could mold and shape the truth and use it to achieve our desired goals.

To put it in simple words, the reality is the situational awareness of the time factor. If we catch hold of it in real-time, we could influence the outcome of the future events. In cyber parlance, it means to prevent breaches and network intrusions by the threat actors by proactively perceiving the threat elements of the cyber environment within a volume of time and cyberspace, comprehend their meaning accurately, project their status in the near future and take proactive mitigation steps. From the user point of view, it means receiving right information in the right format, at the right time. The Cyber Situational Awareness (CSA) allows you to cease the opportunity from hackers to shape the future events. You dominate the cyberspace, secure your assets and protect your business.

It is the zeal to empower organizations to dominate the cyberspace against threat actors, that is motivating Cyware to build cyber situational awareness and information sharing based niche products and innovative solutions. Threats faced by the governments and the companies are becoming increasingly sophisticated with time. Such multifarious, multidimensional, and multifaceted threats cannot be contained through traditional security practices but require innovative platforms that leverage new and emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and blend them with the power of human intelligence to produce an explosive formula for cyber threat mitigation. Similarly, aggressive cyber adversaries cannot be tackled through changes in cyber policy and planning. What is required is a strong connected network that loops in all human endpoints through situational awareness and accelerates secure bidirectional information sharing amongst organizations in the network. 

Our products are designed to reinvent your organization’s security architecture and make it capable of understanding and proactively responding to evolving cyber threat landscapes. Modern research is increasingly supporting the fact that cooperation amongst organizations spanning across different sectors/geographies and real-time awareness of employees within an organization is the key to reduce the attack surface and tackle the ever emerging menace of cyber risk. To ensure such robust channels of information sharing are available for all enterprises, Cyware has designed two niche products viz. Cyware Threat Intelligence eXchange (CTIX) and Cyware Situational Awareness Platform (CSAP). CTIX is a centralized threat intelligence sharing solution that connects your organization with others and helps you quickly detect and respond to security threats before they impact. It allows you to exchange structured cyber threat information including Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) in standard threat information sharing formats like STIX and Cybox. While CTIX covers the inter-organization information sharing and threat data exchange, CSAP is purely focused on intra-organization cyber situational awareness, real-time threat alerting, cyber crisis communication and sensitive information sharing using modern security protocols. The bigger picture is that with CSAP and CTIX you can leverage the collective knowledge, capabilities, and experience and make threat-informed decisions. Most importantly, it will put you in the driver’s seat and prevent threat actors from taking the charge of the situation.
