Connecting the Dots of Visibility in Cyberwarfare of Today
Nowadays, defending against asymmetrical cyber warfare using the old paradigm of focusing on North-South traffic is no longer valid. Attackers have discipline, creativity and more aggressive plans as the attack surface continues to expand with more digital assets inflating the value.
Most cyber attacks and defence will start from a North-South direction, but once inside the network, an attacker will spread horizontally using East-West tactics. This is the precise moment when a combination and synchronization between visibility tools and security tools will be imperative.
