Ponemon Institute is pleased to announce the release of Flipping the Economics of Attacks, sponsored by Palo Alto Networks. In this study, we look at the relationships between the time spent and compensation of today’s adversaries and how organizations can thwart attacks. As revealed in this research, while some attackers may be motivated by non-pecuniary reasons, such as those that are geopolitical or reputational, an average of 69 percent of respondents say they are in it for the money.

Advanced Threat Detection with Machine-Generated Intelligence
October 28, 2015, 10:00 am

Companies are losing traction in the fight to identify and prevent advanced persistent threats (APTs) mainly because threat intelligence is often inaccurate or incomplete. The IT security practitioners in our latest study, Advanced Threat Detection with Machine-Generated Intelligence, believe better intelligence could have stopped an average of five security breaches their company had in the past two years. The good news is machine-generated intelligence provided by near-real-time technologies can improve threat detection and the ability to determine baseline or “normal behavior” in order to detect abnormal behavior.  According to participants in our research, machine-generated intelligence solutions will make threat intelligence more actionable and useful.  We hope you will read our latest study sponsored by Prelert, Advanced Threat Detection with Machine-Generated Intelligence, which looks at the state of advanced threat detection in companies, technologies deployed to detect advanced threats and the value of machine-generated intelligence.

Warmest regards,

Dr. Larry Ponemon
