    Now, the entire country could be disrupted by the click of mouse.
    General Martin E. Dempsey
  • Disruptive and destructive cyberattacks

    are becoming a part of conflict between states, within states, and among nonstate actors. The borderless nature of cyberspace means anyone, anywhere in the world, can use cyber to affect someone else.
    General Martin E. Dempsey
  • Phishing was associated with over 95% of incidents attributed to state-sponsored actors.

    One of the most effective ways you can minimize the phishing threat is through awareness and training.
  • Errors made by internal staff, especially system administrators, were the prime actors in over 60% of surveyed incidents in 2014

  • Users leave footprints wherever they go on the network, and their activities are—or can be—captured in a myriad of logs.

    The key is to collect and collate these data sources into a place where they can be analyzed.
