During the previous post, we discussed the meaning of the different types of attacks, which are extremely complex and involve a large number of targeted actions performed by attackers. In this part, I would like to talk about so-called quantitative research of the attacks used to analyze the maturity level of existing protective technologies and security approaches.
What can we do to eliminate the risk of the targeted attacks? Obviously, we need to implement some kind of technical solution, which would combine the best ideas in the field of unknown threats detection. However, before talking about the solution, let’s try to understand the nature and the meaning of the “targeted attack,” as well as key principles of an offensive operation.
