Since the Google Aurora incident announced in 2010, large organizations have faced a steady stream of APTs and targeted cyber-attacks. In some cases, these attacks have led to costly data breaches at organizations like Anthem, Inc., JPMorgan Chase, Sony Pictures, and Target. Why does this continue to happen? Unfortunately, many organizations are simply unprepared and lack the right cybersecurity strategies, skills, processes, and technologies. Enterprise organizations must come to grips with the new cybersecurity realities and requirements by altering their philosophies and embracing an early detection and rapid response and coordination strategy. To make this transition, CISOs must incorporate and provide analytics strategies and toolsets within their organizations as soon as possible.
