Here are the six threat vectors our review explores
Network Threats are those that are commonly envisioned when thinking about information security. These threats typically come from the internet or other untrusted networks and require targeted control of your network traffic.
Web Attacks are much like network threats, but are "pulled" by your own people, rather than "pushed" by attackers. Web Threats must be accessed, typically through a web browser. Web Threats often require tricking one of your employees in order to be successful. In today’s online community, social media has become a prime target.
Malware is a short-hand term for “malicious software.” This threat is often given names like “virus,” “worm,” “Trojan,” “spyware,” “adware,” or “bot,” but the technical details distinguishing these from one another are less important than the impact they can have upon your business ... which can be extreme and directly focused on your bottom line.
Application Control and Patch Management refers to how you control the growing number and versions of applications that exist on your network. Application control issues can range from simple matters like removing unneeded applications to complex matters like defining ongoing patch and version requirements for managing the software and hardware on your network.
Data Loss events are those that keep many owners awake at night. The data on your systems is typically a combination of sensitive internal information and custodial information that is being stored on behalf of your clients and customers. If control over this information is lost, competitors can gain advantages or customers can leave. In worst case scenarios, there can also be hefty fines from regulatory bodies.
Trust is necessary in all organizations. However, it can be abused. It is important to identify where your trust relationships exist and what could happen if they are taken advantage of. This allows you to define a detection and response process and minimize the cost of a breach of trust.
