Sadly, APT has become all too common an acronym in our technology dialect. What is an APT really? By military definition it is quantifiable: Advanced in that they use techniques that are defense aware and have a high probability of circumventing detection, Persistent in that the attack survives reboot, quarantine, and even system restoration, and Threat in that there is an active actor pursuing the attack. Advanced Persistent Threats are no longer a nation state or war games concept. Even more alarming is the reality that the most recent targets of this type of cyber-attack are organizations of all sizes and that the public sector is prime target.

Our cyber security strategy has for too long been focused on reactively defending each point of attack and ignoring the bigger picture. Hackers target, attack patiently, attack broadly, attack dynamically, attack repeatedly, and attack strategically. Cyber evolution is a reality, the perimeter is non-existent, IoCs are useless, backups are vulnerable, data and compute have sprawled, signature-based detection is a waste of time, AI can be used against AI, who teaching my machine if it’s learning, Ransomware, Extortionware, Destructionware, and we are under-staffed and have no budget!!!! How will we ever win? Persistent protection for persistent attacks… Let’s discuss.
