Current tools and techniques continue to lag behind cyber-attacks. The best in breed deep learning AI and ML tools are routinely circumvented by adversaries using a variety of mechanisms and this will continue
The problem is that security tasks are complex, difficult and few current teams can do this manual work, as we see in investigations that the signatures of the attack are usually evident but occasionally buried deep
securITism disrupts the traditional standard Managed Security Services landscape by deploying an onsite human solution to complement the existing cyber security setup for large enterprises as a “Heads Up” managed team of people with Asperger’s, selected for their innate cognitive skills in 3D visualization; pattern/anomaly recognition; long-term memory; ability to think outside the box and sense of logic that are much better suited for these tasks to minimize the egress of personal and financial data in attacks
Win-wins worthy of a mention: increased public CSR, fewer insider threats, ROI and protection from regulatory fines in light of the imminent General Data Protection Regulations
Studies and investigations have shown that most of the attackers themselves have many traits of Autism so we are fighting like with like, rather than the “normal” mind-set that naturally developed to gloss over the details which are the tell-tale signs of a cyber attack, generally apparent after a major breach investigation. The solution has been documented by the IEEE standards body with the help of Dr Greg Shannon – currently Assistant Director for Cyber Security Strategy at the White House
Some studies and investigations have shown that most of the attackers themselves have some traits of Autism so this is a unique solution of fighting like with like.
