Bangalore: A survey by Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) of more than 1,500 security professionals worldwide showed that 94 percent of respondents believed that APTs (Advanced Packaging Tool) represent a credible threat to national security and economic stability. One in five enterprises has already experienced an APT attack, but more than half of respondents did not believe that APTs differ from traditional threats.



In an APT attack, cybercriminals prey on organizations through reconnaissance, luring victims, redirecting web traffic, executing exploit kits, deploying dropper files, calling home and ultimately stealing critical data. But, because each of these actions could occur on a different part of a network, or over a different communication channel, cybercriminals can break in and steal data at will. There is a strong likelihood that many of today’s most destructive advanced persistent threats (APTs) were conceived a decade ago. Enterprises that rely on most traditional approaches to cybersecurity are unlikely to succeed against the next generation of attacks.
