  • Cybercriminals are evolving, and businesses need to build resilient defenses against them.
  • Organizations should maintain around-the-clock security monitoring and invest in layered defenses to protect against attacks.

In a new whitepaper by Sophos, key strategies are outlined to enhance resilience against active adversaries. Cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated, launching attacks out of hours and increasing the pace of their attacks to infiltrate networks undetected. Businesses can increase friction for hackers by implementing robust, layered defenses and deterring attackers from attempting infiltration.

It is crucial for organizations to seal off entry points by implementing protective processes like multi-factor authentication to prevent unauthorized access. Stolen credentials have become a form of currency among hackers, highlighting the importance of maintaining strong defenses and valuable telemetry data for threat detection and response.

Businesses should also maintain 24/7 vigilance, as hackers often work at night and on weekends to avoid detection. Having effective response plans and cybersecurity training can help organizations prevent and detect cybercriminal activity. Building a culture of cybersecurity awareness throughout the organization is essential to minimize damage and financial costs related to cyber attacks.

Overall, businesses need to adapt their cybersecurity strategies to combat evolving cyber threats and protect their networks from active adversaries.
