Cybersecurity 2020 – Threat Vectors

Last updated on | Posted by

The corporate organization’s network defenses must be highly adaptive to combat the threats of 2020 and beyond. Early identification and rapid containment has always been and will continue to be the key to combat. New artificial intelligence products will be needed.

Lockheed Martin pioneered the concept “cyber kill chain”. The cyber kill chain describes up to seven sequential stages during a targeted cyber attack, they are: Reconnaissance, Weaponization, Delivery, Exploit, Installation, Command and control, and Action.

While possible attack vectors are endless, the main attack vectors are:

  • Advanced Persistent Threats
  • Phishing
  • Trojans
  • Botnets
  • Ransomware
  • Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
  • Wiper Attacks
  • Intellectual Property Theft
  • Theft of Money
  • Data Manipulation
  • Data Destruction
  • Spyware/Malware
  • Man in the Middle (MITM)
  • Drive-By Downloads
  • Malvertising
  • Rogue Software
  • Unpatched Software

QOS Consulting has strategies in place to combat all of the above attack vectors. Unpatched software, seemingly the simplest vulnerability, can still lead to the largest leaks.
