Managing the Risk of Post-breach or "Resident" Attacks

By Ponemon Institute, Illusive Networks


Ponemon Institute surveyed 627 IT and IT security practitioners in the United States to understand how well organizations are addressing cyber risks associated with attackers who may already be residing within the perimeter, including insiders that might act maliciously. In this study, these are referred to as “post-breach” or “resident” attackers. The findings consistently show that organizations do not fully understand the risks associated with this type of threat, are unprepared for resident attackers, and have little ability to discover and remove them.
