In today’s data economy, a constant stream of alerts overwhelms security analysts who must then quickly identify the potential threat through the noise.
Further complicating the task and because of the sheer volume of activity, minor irregularities are often overlooked as innocuous glitches. In the film The Matrix, "déjà vu" represents a change to the code – it’s a glitch in the system, but we soon discover that it isn’t as harmless as it seems.
The reality is that seemingly small glitches could represent significant digital risk if not addressed. Savvy threat actors aim to avoid detection by living off the land, making it difficult to differentiate legitimate activity from the threat. In this white paper, we’ll discuss two potential consequences from overlooking minor security events – infiltration and lateral movement – and what actionable steps you can take to better arm yourself against the adversary.
