Information security changes constantly and at a rate beyond comprehension. Hackers too are increasingly becoming relentless, making responding to information security incidents an ever more complex challenge.

TYPES OF CYBER ATTACKS

A Cyber-Attack is any kind of action that targets a Computer Information System and damages or steals the victims data. The data acquired is modified, damaged, sold or even held at ransom from the victim. The hacker does this through various types of Cyber-Attacks.

Benefits of Honeypots

In my previous blog I discussed Port Scanning. In this blog I would like to discuss another method used to protect servers from attackers using Network Honeypots. A Honeypot is a sweet looking server, at least it’s intended to look sweet to the attacker, similar to how bears view honey. Honeypot is an additional security protection that can be used alongside a firewall this will help to protect your network from hackers.

Incident Management Process for an effective SOC

Organizations need to have a proper, focused, and a coordinated approach to responding to incidents. This includes a system for Occasion Response that outlines the correct way for implementing the Incident Response capability.
