Tracking and defeating hands-on-keyboard attacks against your organization requires a high level of expertise. Unlike the relatively simple automated attacks carried out by low-level cybercriminals, live attacks by advanced persistent threat (APT) actors demand specialized incident response capabilities to mitigate damage and fully re-secure the network.
As such, it is crucial to partner with a cybersecurity provider that has the necessary expertise to defend against sophisticated attacks. The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has recently published a list of Qualified APT Response Service Providers, which identifies cybersecurity partners with the capability to effectively respond to APT attacks. Choosing a qualified provider from this list can help you safeguard your organization against these complex and persistent threats.
