Fending off targeted cyberattacks with ATA

Blog-post by HP Security Strategists, Tue, 02/03/2015 - 21:41

By HP security strategist Stan Wisseman

Unlike computer worms and viruses that usually attack indiscriminately, targeted cyberattacks involve intelligent planning with respect to the chosen target or class of targets. Also evident in these attacks, is a difference in attitude: the threat agent wants to attack the victim and is willing to expend the extra effort to target them as an individual (or group).

The cloud is showing a much darker and drearier side. At least this is one conclusion I came to after reading a recent study by 451 Research.

The research study, “Voice of the Enterprise: Cloud Computing Preview“, which was conducted in late 2014, interviewed approximately 800 IT professionals to get their view of cloud.
