We need to be aware of the strategies used by the cyber attacker in order to discover cyber kill chain attacks and counter back against them. This is the only way that we can set up an effective countermeasure. So today we will discuss the defense strategies for the cyber kill chain.
The defense strategy for reconnaissance can be done by restricting the publication of company data on the internet. Furthermore, the company also recommended a detailed analysis in terms of potential threat and attack. Basically this defense strategy is about discovering the abnormalities in time.
The weaponization defense strategy can be done when the company security team can trace any potential attack directly and analyze them cautiously through a special analysis engine. By implementing this strategy, the security team can find the possible impacts of the malicious software in general.
Even if the attackers always controlled the attack, it is still possible to examine the origin of the cyber attacks. The aim in this strategy is to know the intention of the cyber attack being performed and figure out the approach of the attacker.
The security imperfections are attached in the periphery or in the area of common or systemically related programs and services. Besides people that can be an obvious security risk, to uncover the weak point, the security team needs to do penetration tests.
The attacker can install a malicious program on the target user system without the user knowledge. The defense strategy can be done by issuing suitable certificates by establishing individual policies and by examination for current signatures using ordinary virus scanners.
For preventing the attacker from gaining control over the user system, the defense strategy that can be done for a company based on the analysis of the attack vectors used by the malicious software. The main objective is to discover any existing security flaw.
7) Goal attainment
Once the attacker has full access to the target system they get total control on the system asset. To prevent this to happen, a specific action needs to be performed and must be determined and responsibilities need to be planned earlier. This includes the technical procedures and analysis to avoid major damage.
