Indian Organisations Being Re-Targeted with Cyber-Attacks; FireEye


According to a recent security report by Trustwave, the Indian retail industry encountered the maximum number of security breaches (16.7%) last year because attackers had become increasingly organized.


Holding the post of director of Center for Cyber Security and Protection, Robert Eckman belongs to the Cleveland Marshall College of Law. He is as well Chief Information Security Officer at the technology management consulting firm MCPC based in Cleveland. In his opinion, energy companies frequently segregate cyber security among departments, while inadequate communication inside such companies can result in vulnerabilities. However according to him, currently organized efforts are in place to solve the problem, including constantly issued guidelines from the government. Wksu.org posted this, April 5, 2018.


FireEye's investigation into the incident indicates the most recent trend as 49% consumers within India as well as APAC suffering a single high priority hack, if not more, fell victim to successful attacks once more during an annum. According to director of APAC threat intelligence Tim Wellsmore at FireEye, India faces a difficult situation, as there are attacks again and again on organisations, while skill deficiencies make organisations/governments weakly equipped for dealing with sophisticated assaults.


Re-targeting that as well means repeat data hacks occurs with the attacker invading one PC once returns with another. APAC region has the greatest susceptibility to breaches while it has a twofold possibility of encountering more than one incident from more than one hacker in comparison with North America.


The most popular way to compromise has been phishing along with social engineering -55%, while malicious insiders follow at 13% as also remote access at 9%. Thus, human actions poses the biggest obstacle to company cyber security, while social engineering fraud namely "CEO fraud" encourage executives in allowing spurious money transactions that keep on increasing. The total web applications experimentally tried showed at least a single security flaw, with the average number spotted in every application counting 11.


Personalized web assaults getting more prevalent, are even more advanced, with plentiful hacks suggesting cyber-criminals carefully pre-plan them and look for unprotected tools/packages for exploitation. Hence, organisations require having security experts who have deft knowledge.
