How Targeted Cyberattack Simulations Differ from Penetration Tests & Vulnerability Scanning

The most effective way for an organization to test its resilience against the growing wave of cybercrime, is to opt for targeted attack simulations that use multi-vector simulated attacks. These kinds of simulations are also known as Breach & Attack Simulations (BAS). Gartner has asserted that, "Security testing is so challenging for technical professionals focused on security operations that many don't try it. Breach and Attack Simulation tools help make security postures more consistent and automated."

Whitepaper: Four Cyber Security Essentials Your Board Wants to Know

by CymulateJul 08, 2019

Explaining your organization's security strategy and controls to a nontechnical audience can be challenging. Aligning that strategy against ever-changing threats and cyberattack techniques is even more challenging. Translating the strategy, threat landscape, and daily impact into meaningful risk metrics has traditionally been nearly impossible.

Yet, executive teams and boards of directors are asking for exactly that. They increasingly demand data that describes the potential impact of a security threat to operations, brand reputation, market position-even stock value. This document provides a context for understanding what kinds of information a board needs, and why. It will give you four insights based on quantifiable metrics to help you explain your current cybersecurity posture, defensibility, priorities, and performance in ways that are most meaningful to your executive audience.
