Deploy a solid incident response platform.

It is paramount for organizations to deploy a platform that integrates people, process and tools in order to provide a comprehensive incident response process. An ideal platform gathers and displays data from SIEM, IPS and other sources in one common view to enable much faster response while providing easy-to-understand evidence for the C-suite. Combining incident response with malware detection capabilities transforms how organizations conduct and manage digital investigations.

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.
