Threat hunting isn’t just for the biggest organizations anymore. As the SolarWinds attack demonstrated, any size company can be vulnerable to stealthy attackers who worm their way into the enterprise. Even if a company has no assets of interest to foreign spies, financially motivated cybercriminals can use the same access points and evasion techniques.
According to IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach Report 2020, the average organization takes 315 days to detect and contain a breach caused by a malicious attack. The longer the attackers stay inside your systems, the more money it costs. According to IBM, it costs companies an additional $1.12 million if it takes them more than 200 days to detect a breach.
