Breach-focused attacks will target any employee to gain access to their system. It can come in the form of a lure to a credential phishing website or an urgent ask to review a document with a malicious payload.
The adversary conducts research against target companies to identify potential victims, vulnerabilities, and security gaps at the perimeter.
The adversary launches an email attack impersonating trust individuals, luring the victim to a credential-phishing website or asking them to review a fake document.
The adversary uses the compromised user credentials or their own command & control network to gain access to the victim’s system and hide their trail.
The adversary conducts internal reconnaissance to identify critical systems, escalate privileges, and discover internal business processes that they can exploit.
Taking advantage of gathered intelligence, the adversary moves laterally secretly gaining access to critical systems and exfiltrating data without being detected.
AJ discusses how email is the preferred channel cybercriminals use to launch a data breach attack.
Cyber criminals constantly evolve tactics to trick people into downloading malware, sending information, or logging into fake web pages. Identity deception is a key tactic used to establish sender trust and to convince the victim to take action.
Agari detects threats such as data breaches in real time, ensuring that the initial spear phishing or malware-based attack never reaches the inbox.
Zero day attacks are synonymous with data breaches and are often launched with no advanced warning. They can contain no recognizable “digital signature” and employ evasive tactics to easily slip past SEGs and other legacy security controls such as attachment sandboxing or URL rewriting.
Agari couples behavioral analysis with deep-level URL and attachment inspection to defend against never-seen-before attacks before they exploit unknown vulnerabilities.
Employee reported email attacks can be one of the best sources of breach threat intelligence and help prevent or contain a breach. However, they can also cause Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts more work because of the sheer number of reported incidents.
