Radware releases series II of its hacker’s Almanac 2021
MAHWAH, NJ, November 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Radware®, (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cybersecurity and application delivery solutions, today introduced Series II of its Hacker’s Almanac 2021. The three-part series is a field guide to infosecurity for security and IT professionals as well as executive decision-makers responsible for protecting their organizations. In a lessons learned format, Series II unfolds the Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) used by notorious actors in real-world cyberattacks, and shows how these TTPs fit into the MITER ATT & CK framework.
The Hacker’s Almanac series serves as a cornerstone to help organizations understand:
- The landscape of threats.
- Why they might be in danger.
- Their attack surface.
- How attackers can target an environment.
“Understanding the objectives, tactics and methods of malicious actors is an important step in an organization’s journey towards a balanced security strategy,” said Pascal Geenens, director of threat intelligence at Radware. “By gaining a better understanding of their adversaries’ TTPs, organizations will be better prepared to detect, isolate, deceive and kick out threat actors who might target their environment. “
The Pirate Almanac Series II describes tactics and techniques, ranging from scouting to start an operation and the initial access required to gain a foothold in a victim’s network, to executing the attack , defense evasion strategies and exfiltration. It gives examples of actual attacks targeting supply chains, critical infrastructure, IOT devices, financial assets, etc. And it details how bots, DDoS attacks, credential stuffing, router hijacking, and other extortion techniques and tactics are used to exploit their victims.
“If there was one word to describe what organizations should expect from cybercrime in 2022, it would be ‘more,’ said Geenens. “More sophisticated and high intensity attacks. Smarter attackers with bigger budgets. Increased pressure on supply chains and critical infrastructure. And bigger and bolder threats of extortion. In short, the security community will need to be more vigilant than ever, and organizations will need to go to great lengths to keep their attack surfaces under control. The past two years have ushered in a new era for cybercrime and information security, and it’s not going away anytime soon. “
Released earlier this year, Hacker’s Almanac Series I offers a glimpse of current threat actors. A copy of this report can be obtained here.
