Password Hack Prevention Tips from Hikvision


The article, “Why hackers are more persistent than security teams,” covers threat actors’ persistence that increases concerns such as hacks and security breaches.

The article noted that cybersecurity spending has increased as budgets have expanded since 2010.

From the article: “Many of the threat actors launching malicious campaigns are operating through surprisingly rudimentary means. More often than not, a simple set of tools and techniques is all hackers need. Instead of developing sophisticated zero-day exploits, many such threat actors work to coordinate many less innovative attacks on lower value targets. In other words, what gets them through—and the reason they continue to be so successful—is that they are simply more persistent and creative than their victims.”

Better understanding of internal threat landscapes can assist organizations in a more rapid response to breaches and threats. Since cybercriminals often have access to hacked networks for several months before being detected, the quicker companies can identify hacks or potential threats, the sooner the threat can be eradicated.
