Research Report: Gartner Report: How to Respond to the 2019 Threat Landscape

by CymulateSep 04, 2019

A shift in digital threats requires a shift in cyber security strategy.

In this report, we believe Gartner explains:

  • Key traits of the 2019 cyber security landscape
  • How continuous security risk assessments enable tackling these threats by:
    • Reducing your attack surface through regular security effectiveness testing.
    • Prioritizing resources and remediating according to where you are most exposed.
    Yesterday's tactics are no longer enough.

    By implementing an automated, continuous and comprehensive approach to security threat assessments, your organization can stay ahead of cyber attacks without incurring additional overhead.

Whitepaper: Are Your Security Controls Yesterday’s News?

by CymulateJul 18, 2019

What is the current state of your security control testing? Is your testing limited by scope and infrequency? This SANS White Paper explains why security control validation needs to improve to emulate actual—not hypothetical—threats to an organization.

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.

Whitepaper: Simulation vs. Pentesting vs. Vuln Scanning

by CymulateJul 08, 2019

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: Testing for Compliance Just Became Easier

by CymulateJun 21, 2019

Meeting compliance regulations doesn't ensure that controls are effective against the latest cyber threats. Even compliant organizations are breached. And it doesn't mean that there aren't hidden vulnerabilities waiting to be exploited. There's an easier way. You can ensure your organization is audit-ready and know your exact level of risk across all threat vectors and infrastructure. This eBook will address primary compliance frameworks and show you how Cymulate Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) enables you to free teams from repetitive compliance tasks and engage your resources in more strategic initiatives.
