iTWire’s coverage of the 2016 report is here.
One vendor that uses the report is Tenable Network Security. A global leader transforming security technology, it has produced a new set of analytics to help customers act on key findings of the report to enhance organisational security posture.
Cris Thomas, strategist, Tenable Network Security said, “Every year the Verizon DBIR contains insights and information that can help organisations strengthen their security postures, but most struggle to put this information into action because the required data is difficult to manually extract and incorporate into the security program. Tenable’s new DBIR dashboards and remediation reports help customers build a comprehensive security program that incorporates key findings and recommendations from the report and makes them actionable.”
In addition to updating the five existing Tenable DBIR dashboards (account weakness, browser vulnerabilities, incident pattern monitoring, network and host security; formerly called Indicators of Compromise in 2015, and vulnerabilities and malware collection), new dashboards and ARCs include:
- most interesting things dashboard: Identifies specific common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) that Verizon identified as being frequently exploited by attackers.
- account weakness and compliance ARC: Allows organisations to improve access control measures by developing and enforcing user management policies, including effective passwords, account transition and least privilege policies.
- incidence patten monitoring ARC: Helps security teams protect against intrusions by comprehensively monitoring for remote access, potential policy violations, anti-virus updates, data leakage, vulnerabilities, detected changes and suspicious activity.
- Other ARCs and dashboards include ARCs for network and host security, vulnerabilities and malware, vulnerabilities by common vendor, and web application and browser security.
Tenable has produced a whitepaper titled Assess Yourself Against Key Verizon 2016 DBIR Findings to help organisations make Verizon DBIR findings actionable, read the whitepaper.
