Invest in a complete defensive strategy, including intrusion detection and protection.

By investing in and deploying a thorough defensive strategy, organizations can get the leg up. Complete with intrusion detection and protection, this strategy gives organizations the ability to detect the digital fingerprints of the most stealthy and persistent threats. By integrating visibility and control with advanced detection and forensics, organizations will benefit from preventative, early detections and mitigation capabilities against advanced malware.

In today’s information security landscape, it is not a question of “if,” but a question of “when” your network will be breached. Many breaches happen because people are not following policy. As a result, some of the most severe incidents have been detected by simplistic methods. Also, when it comes to significant breaches, the role of insiders should not be downplayed. For example, Vodafone was recently compromised when someone with knowledge of the organization accessed and stole its customer lists, including payment information.

Organizations must have a strategy in place to lessen the likelihood that their systems and data are breached by anticipating and preparing for these threats. Ken Silva, senior vice president for cyber strategy of ManTech's Mission, Cyber and Technology Solutions group, offers five recommendations for protection against advanced hacking attacks.
