Performing pro-active and frequent IT audits will help to secure your IT environment but it is by no means foolproof. It is still possible for your organisation to be the victim of a security breach no matter how strict your security controls are. Therefore, it is important to consider multiple approaches when formulating your security plan. One such approach is the cyber kill chain. In this blog, we will discuss the cyber kill chain and how using it in the right way can benefit your organisation.
What is the cyber kill chain?
The cyber kill chain was originally a military concept but has since been adopted by the global aerospace, defense and security giant Lockheed Martin to describe the stages of a cyber security attack. The idea of the model is to get organizations to view the attack from the point of view of the attacker. Theoretically this enables organizations to better prepare their response to these security risks.
