Cyber Intelligence: Information Protection

Your intellectual property is posted on a blog…criminals discuss ways to defraud your company and customers… hackers plot ways to penetrate your network…

Early Warning of Information Leaks and Fraud

While your existing security may address data loss and other types of cyber threats to the enterprise within the perimeter, how do you detect cyber threats that exist outside the perimeter? Information Security and Fraud provides the people, process and technology to detect and provide early warning of threats coming from the Internet and social media. Threats addressed include the following:

  • Phishing, Vishing, SMiShing and malware attacks
  • Hackers attempting to compromise corporate systems
  • Leaks of sensitive information leading to regulatory or compliance liabilities

Comprehensive monitoring technology delivers relevant intelligence 

EMDYN goes far beyond the capabilities of commercial search engines or self-service monitoring tools. Using a unique, patented technology platform, proven and perfected for more than a decade, we provide the most comprehensive online coverage available anywhere. 
 The result: your time and attention are centered on what’s most important to you and your business.

Real-time, validated alerts bring highest priorities front and center

It seems like every day brings a new web site, social network or threat actor to keep an eye on, and attack vectors are growing faster that staff, tools or budgets. EMDYN takes care of all the monitoring and processing of the content, delivering only genuine risks and threats via 24×7 alerts that are vetted and validated by our threat analysts. The moment an indication of a physical security threat is confirmed by our partner’s around-the-clock Security Operations Center, you are alerted, giving you time to successfully, proactively mitigate risk.

Not just alerts, but intelligence

Initial rapid notification is a critical first layer of defense, but our clients also want real intelligence – insight into the who, when, where and why. Each report is followed by an Incident investigation Report within 24 hours. This report provides an assessment of the threat, the author or source, the estimated level of risk, and recommendations on actions to prepare for or mitigate it.

It’s also important to understand not only the risks targeting your own organization, but also the state of the threatscape in your industry and with regard to physical security risks online more generally. That’s why every client also receives our Daily Threat Briefing and Weekly Trends Report, providing regular up-to-the-minute insights into what’s happening outside the individual enterprise.

Internal Data Loss

Data loss can rapidly lead to large-scale damage across your entire organization. Leaks involving your intellectual property, for instance, can all but eliminate your organization’s competitive edge. Leaked information, whether intentional or inadvertent, can result from a variety of causes, including:

  • “After hours” employee disclosures and discussions in social media
  • Statements and data dumps related to private or sensitive customer information on file sharing and “paste” sites
  • Online technical discussions or network data posted by employees
  • Unsecured logins and confidential documents hosted on your own web properties
  • Leaked IP and internally-authored content on document sharing sites 
 In the last few years, we have found clients’ customer and financial data, internal presentations, disclosure of upcoming mergers and acquisitions, proprietary source code, and other intellectual property across the web and social media.

External Threat Actors

Internal Data Loss lets you know what’s already out there. External Threat Actor intelligence tells you who’s trying to get in. The threat actors behind network attacks are specializing. The most capable attackers no longer just launch their own attacks. Other activities include creating and selling increasingly user-friendly tools to others, recruiting new group members or “mules” for moving money or data, and renting out botnets for spam and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. All this activity is fueling a growing and increasingly observable community of actors that target companies for criminal, political, and even social and religious reasons.
