Organizations continue to focus on protecting the perimeter while neglecting to monitor bad guys getting inside and ultimately pilfering data, says a security researcher at SafeBreach, which released a new report today.
In 3,400 breach methods used for 11.5 million attack simulations, SafeBreach in its new Hacker’s Playbook Findings Report found that virtual attackers had a more than a 60% success rate of using malware to infiltrate networks. And once in, the malware could move laterally roughly 70% of the time. In half the cases, they could exit networks with data, according to simulated attacks SafeBreach conducted on its customers.
