Research Report: State of Attack Surface Management: A Crisis of Overconfidence

by Team CymruAug 01, 2022

Most security teams believe they are doing a fair job of managing risks and defending against attackers, but many underestimate the strategic investments and tactical controls necessary to manage all of their external IT assets. This report from Dark Reading, commissioned by Team Cymru, uncovers data that makes a strong case for the adoption of the new generation of External Attack Surface Management (EASM) solutions, what is now being referred to as ASM 2.0. Unlike those that came before, today's EASM is a more efficient and effective way to handle external IT asset risk and get security team capabilities more aligned with their overly optimistic perceptions.

Research Report: The State of Threat Hunting and the Role of the Analyst

by Team CymruMar 01, 2022

Over 1,700 IT and IT security professionals across North America, Latin America, the UK and Europe responded to a Ponemon Institute study, commissioned by Team Cymru.

The results indicate that practitioners are working towards building more mature analyst teams and threat hunting capabilities, yet leadership lacks a firm understanding of the role these components should play in the overall security strategy.

The study tracks the level of importance placed on security analysts, as well as the maturity and efficacy of threat hunting.

Responses indicate that approaches are still largely reactionary, while analysts and threat hunting are viewed as tactical elements, as opposed to strategic catalysts for security optimization.

  • Only 35% of respondents believe their organizations value and effectively leverage the expertise of their analyst teams.
  • 50% of incidents resulting in significant disruption were repeat attacks by the same threat actor.
  • 70% find it very difficult to gain an attacker's perspective on their organization.
  • 61% say threat intelligence can't keep up with changes in how threat actors attack their organizations.
Find out how cyber security leaders should adjust to address the gaps exposed in this report. Read the report, then let Team Cymru help you elevate your threat hunters to elite status.

Research Report: Forrester Total Economic Impact™ Study: Team Cymru Pure Signal™ Recon

by Team CymruJun 30, 2021

How to Achieve Tangible Financial Gains and a Proactive Security Posture

For most threat analysts and incident response teams, their biggest obstacle is visibility that abruptly ends at the firewall. Their threat hunting is reactive and restricted to looking within their network for threats other tools have missed.

However, many companies aspire to achieve a more mature security program that better leverages their analyst teams. Those companies that achieve the next level of maturity are employing external threat hunting to get ahead of threats, enrich the SOC, and optimize incident response. Team Cymru commissioned Forrester Consulting to quantify the financial impact of this advanced approach using Team Cymru's Pure Signal Recon solution.

Learn the positive financial impact Pure Signal Recon makes on...

  • Block attacks before they're launched.
  • Detect supply chain threats.
  • Reduce M&A cyber risk.
  • Improve gains from existing budgets.
  • Reduce operational drain from phishing attacks.
