Security is a Team Sport

It is said that a picture says a thousand words – and it couldn’t be more true when looking at the image above. This image, from Momentum Cyber, shows the tools and services available (as of 2020) to combat cyber attacks.

The cyber security market (which was valued at USD 156.5 billion in 2019) has responded to increasing attacks with a seemingly unending list of technical solutions and services; it’s no wonder there are so many options, because a business, left unchecked, is vulnerable to cyber threats such as:

  • Advanced persistent threats (APTs)
  • Denial of Service (DoS)
  • Insider attacks
  • Drive-by attack
  • Trojan Horse
  • Adware/Spyware
  • Unpatched software
  • Remove Access attacks
  • SQL injection
  • Cross Site Scripting (XXS)
  • Credential reuse
  • Eavesdrop attack
  • Brute- Force and Dictionary Network Attacks
  • AI powered attacks
  • Malware
  • Ransomware
  • Man-in-the-Middle (MITM)
  • Domain theft
  • Social domain activity
  • Mobile app threats
  • Impersonation schemes
  • Marketplace fraud
  • Phishing attacks: Spear Phishing, Whale Phishing
  • Domain squatting
  • Brandjacking
  • Mobile app schemes
  • Marketplace fraud
  • Twitter attacks
  • BEC attacks
  • Executive masquerades
  • Stolen IP

Some of the services and solutions are born out of a sincere desire to solve a problem, and unfortunately, some are born out of a real desire to capitalize on a problem.

Wading through this flooded market makes it difficult for IT professionals who are faced with safeguarding their business’ digital infrastructure against any one of the threats listed above. How is one to – first and foremost – find the time to research all the options and understand the differences? Then from there, how are they to fully assess those options to find which vendor will actually deliver on their promises? It is a daunting scenario.
