Advanced Persistent Threat Protection For Dummies is a smart read for all levels of security expertise as, no matter the size of your organization, your information is under attack. Well-funded adversaries have a wealth of tools and techniques available to obtain your information. After they have your information in their possession, they use it to increase their wealth at your expense.
These adversaries are professionals, and they know what they’re doing. They believe that, for any given target of information they desire, that it’s obtainable if they can discover the technique required to get it. They spend considerable sums in research and development to develop these advanced techniques. Your adversaries are patient; they aren’t counting on immediate results but instead are persistent as they diligently work toward their goal. Unlike the school age hackers and “script kiddies” of the past, these new adversaries represent a real threat to the confidentiality and integrity of our information.
These new adversaries and what they represent are known as advanced persistent threats (APTs). These techniques and the people who use them represent the greatest menace against
the widespread use of electronic information systems today. The operators and owners of information systems have had solutions available to counter APTs, but your adversaries
have always been about two steps ahead.
This book uncovers a shroud of mystery and explains how Advanced Persistent Threat protection solutions work and how they can help an organization gain the upper hand against APTs.
