                Incident Response Insights Report 2018

                Risks, remedies, and best practices for defending against cyber threats

                In this report you will learn:

                • Emerging threat trends based on 2017 incident response engagements
                • How you might be vulnerable
                • How to respond faster and more effectively when an incident does occur
                • Planning and preparation strategies to increase organizational resilience

                All too often companies are learning the hard way — during an incident — how they could have been better prepared to mitigate the risk or reduce the damage.

                In 2017, Secureworks’ formidable team of incident responders and analysts helped hundreds of organizations navigate through complex and high-risk security incidents. We analyzed the lessons learned, studied global threat trends, and captured the key findings in Secureworks annual Incident Response Insights Report, 2018. It offers data and best practices to help you prepare better, defend faster, and respond more effectively in the face of threats that put your business at risk. In 50% of IR engagements over the past 12 months, for example, organizations had insufficient end point or network visibility to respond successfully. Advanced threats went undetected for an average of 380 days.

                Findings also include emerging global threat trends, methods of attack, key recommendations for maturing your IR program, and what has, and hasn’t, been working as organizations put both proactive and emergency response procedures to the test.

                In almost every case where software vulnerabilities were exploited by an adversary to gain access to a network or system, the vendor had released security patches for those vulnerabilities months beforehand.

                We generate around 2 billion events each month. With Secureworks, we are able to crunch down that number to 20-30 high fidelity alerts — and that makes my team's job much easier.
