“Organisations need to be able to identify sensitive information and make sure it remains safe,” commented Carl Leonard, senior manager at Websense Security Labs. “Accidents happen, so protecting confidential data is essential if you don’t want to risk cybercriminals running away it…”
Carl Leonard, senior manager at Websense Security Labs told The INQUIRER, "Data is everywhere and its value is growing exponentially with huge volumes of new content being created and shared every second. As organisations manage this data, the challenge is that much of it is sensitive and theft is a major concern…”
Your worst nightmare has come true: your business has been hacked! What do you do? Today, the Wall Street Journal published an article addressing this worst-case scenario with an insightful to-do list for companies facing a data breach.
While a breach will likely set a company back financially, there are steps a business can take to take to reduce the damage and prevent the event from having a long-lasting impact. The article calls for multiple steps. One in particular is to determine if the breach is still open – companies are warned not to assume that just because one infected computer has been cleaned up or removed the attack is over. The intruder could have taken control of multiple machines. Patrik Runald, Senior Security Research Manager at Websense is quoted in the article on this subject:
“Hackers often send data to so-called dynamic hosts that constantly change their Internet addresses. Most legitimate websites don't use this kind of addressing. If data are still being sent to these types of addresses, it's a possible sign that a breach is still happening.” – Patrik Runald, Websense
The Wall Street Journal cites the Identity Theft Resource Center, which reports that last year, 662 organizations publicly disclosed data breaches. However, the actual number is likely much higher than that, since not all hacking incidents are disclosed. With all of the major security breaches we’ve seen in the last year, it is impossible to ignore the need for organizations to tighten up their security strategy. Cybercrooks are using every possible vector to penetrate your networks and traditional security solutions just don’t cut it.
