When should you think about keeping your cyberattack surface in good shape? Every day, just like exercise (“if only we had the time!”). If that’s not happening, take advantage of seven ideal times to take stock of your external risk—and drive your business forward.

Seven Times To Attack Your Attack Surface

 

in 2021

Your digital footprint changes fast, and adversaries only need to find one attack vector, one time, to take you down. Grab this ebook to see how attack surface management (ASM) makes you stronger and healthier every day—just like exercise—but without all that time and effort.

 

Managing cybersecurity is like staying in shape

  • 1 Try new tactics

  • 2 Maintain discipline

  • 3 Persistence is key

As with fitness, we welcome new shortcuts—better, smarter, faster ways of getting the results we want. Attack surface management (ASM) could become the next keto of cybersecurity—something everyone tries because they keep hearing about it, and many adopt long-term because it works as advertised.

Keeping your digital attack surface in good shape takes constant vigilance to make sure you find and fix risks before you suffer mishaps. ASM involves discovering, assessing, prioritizing, and mitigating cyber risk—on a continuous basis—across critical areas such as brand exposures, vulnerabilities, and misconfigurations.

You can't manage dynamic risk by assessing it at one point, any more than you could build muscle by working out once a month. Conducting pen testing and vulnerability scans on a somewhat regular basis is a good start but it isn’t enough. ASM offers a critical advantage with nonstop coverage, so nothing slips past you.

 You can’t manage dynamic risk by assessing it at one point, any more than you could build muscle by working out once a month. Conducting pen testing and vulnerability scans on a somewhat regular basis is a good start but it isn’t enough. ASM offers a critical advantage with nonstop coverage, so nothing slips past you.

Making it easy to visualize external risk exposure and severity in one place increases the odds of your team acting quickly to resolve serious issues. Learn how automated threat correlation, prioritization, and expert insights help contextualize and remediate issues faster.

Stop losing sleep

6 reasons 5
 

It’s taxing enough to worry about threats lurking outside your company without losing sleep over risks created within. Continuous attack surface discovery uncovers external digital risk from ShadowIT, which puts security at equal or greater risk than phishing attacks and other tried-and-true campaigns.

Dashboards afford you an easy way to show a steadily shrinking attack surface, or that you’ve got things covered.

Demonstrate that you’re eliminating exposure—and work—as time goes on to avoid risk in the first place.

The worldwide focus for businesses in 2021 will be getting back in shape with massive investments in IT and cybersecurity. This book will help you understand what ASM brings to the table that other weapons in your arsenal may not.

The more complex your security operations become, the more specialized tools (that don’t talk to each other) and types of intelligence you need to manage. As shown throughout this book, ASM needs to happen on a continuous basis because your attack surface changes on a continuous basis, often without you realizing it.
