Surveillance des cybermenaces

Cyber threats are constantly changing. Criminals are always coming up with new and more effective malware, coming up with new ways to infiltrate cyber defenses, and finding novel ways to socially engineer attacks. With an overwhelming number of possible cyber threats putting data at risk, cyber threat monitoring is a critical part of a security strategy.

An Overview of Cyber Threat Monitoring

What is cyber threat monitoring?

Cyber threat monitoring is the process of actively scanning for, identifying, and mitigating potential cyber threats to a network or system. It involves continuous monitoring of the network and the web. A strong cyber threat monitoring platform monitors public facing assets for exposed data while scanning the clear and dark web for stolen and leaked credentials, hacker chatter or any intellectual property that may have been stolen.

What cyber threats does your organization face? 

There are many kinds of cyber threats, ranging from accidental threats (leaked or mistakenly exposed data) to malicious attacks (social engineering attacks and ransomware attacks). Here are some of the most common: 

  • Violations de données : A data breach occurs when unauthorized access is gained to a system or network, and sensitive data is stolen or compromised.
  • Logiciel malveillant: Malware is software that is designed to damage or disrupt a device or system. 
  • Ransomware: Ransomware is a type of malware that locks users out of their devices or networks, withholding data from an organization until a ransom is paid. 
  • Attaques d'hameçonnage : Phishing attacks are attempts to deceive users into providing personal or financial information by posing as a legitimate entity.
  • Attaques d'ingénierie sociale : Social engineering attacks are attempts to trick users into giving up sensitive information or clicking on a malicious link or site.

What is the cyber threat monitoring process? 

A good threat monitoring program continuously scans the internet for exposed enterprise assets, GitHub secrets, stolen credentials and other sensitive information. Flare, for example, monitors thousands of cybercrime channels across sources like Telegram, the dark web (Tor) and I2P. Flare platform automatically collects, analyzes, structures, and contextualizes dark web data, prioritizing alerts so your team can take action in real-time.

The Role of Cyber Threat Monitoring in Today’s Cybersecurity Landscape

Why monitor for cyber threats right now? 

External actors account for most data breaches and attacks. According to Verizon’s latest Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), 83% of breaches in 2023 came from outside of organizations. The majority of these attacks included the use of stolen credentials, ransomware, and phishing attacks. By monitoring the web and your own networks, your team can catch the sale of stolen credentials before those credentials are used against your organization.

What tools are needed for cyber threat monitoring?  

It can be hard to monitor for risk yourself if you don’t know where to look. Stolen data is often sold on the dark web — the parts of the Internet that aren’t accessible by standard browsers or search engines. Bad actors also use the secure messaging app Telegram to conduct sales and discuss attacks. Cyber threat monitoring platforms are able to monitor the places your browser can’t reach to find threats to your organization. 

What is the impact of cyber threats to your data? 

If a criminal infiltrates your network, it can be costly. The average cost of a data breach is  $4.45 million, including the cost of finding and remediating the breach, interruptions of operations, legal fees and other fines. This can be devastating for small and midsize businesses. There is a reputational cost as well; customers may not trust an organization with their data after a breach.
