Cisco Talos Summit: Network Defenders Not Serious Enough About Attacks
Security is weak, and most companies are clueless, according to Immunity researcher Lurene Grenier, who kicked off the Cisco Talos Threat Research Summit on Sunday. That was the message from Immunity researcher Lurene Grenier, who on Sunday kicked off the Cisco Talos Threat Research Summit, in Orlando, Fla. At the heart of Grenier's view of attackers is a set of three tiers: To have a chance of defending against tier 2 threats, Grenier said, your organization must do two things, one expensive and one difficult. "They need to know your network better than the attackers, and that's a tall order," Grenier explained. One of the reasons Grenier's warnings seem so dire is that she has seen the layers of attacks that threat actors have at their disposal.
