Contrary to popular belief, cyberattacks are not (always) a massive attempt to take over or disable your infrastructure. While a wide DDOS attack can be used as a decoy, the real work is more subtle, more elaborate. Consider a James Bond film, for example. The bad guy would try to infiltrate your organization quietly, identify its weaknesses, and attempt to gain power gradually in order to fulfill his villainous plan.

Just as in those Bond movies, broad, external defenses are not enough, and usually countermeasures come too late to stop the infiltration. This is especially true for fragmented organizations and enterprises relying heavily on external contractors and employees working remotely. Once an enemy has found his way in, the whole organization falls. With 69% of breaches perpetrated by outsiders like organized criminal groups and nation-states, it takes a special problem-solver like 007 to save the day.

The key objective of any CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) is the prevention of impact to the organization from any form of security breach. This, as we know, is much easier said than done. A good CISO, in fact, comes to work every morning assuming that a breach has already happened, with a view to fixing any vulnerabilities and securing the system to the highest standard possible. Every single day.

What is the Principle of Least Privilege and How Do You Implement It?

In the military, they have a well-known phrase that happens to succinctly describe the definition of the least privilege principle: ‘Need-To-Know Basis’. For the military, this means that sensitive information is only given to those who need that information to perform their duty. In cybersecurity, it’s much the same idea. The ‘least privilege’ principle involves the restriction of individual user access rights within a company to only those which are necessary in order for them to do their job. By the same token, each system process, device, and application should be granted the least authority necessary, to avoid compromising privileged information.
