SecurityNOW Podcast: Hacked and Don’t Know it with Chris Gerritz
How Companies Can be Hacked and not Know it
Our CEO Chris Gerritz recently had the opportunity to sit down with Preston Smith and Ken Hess of SecurityNOW to discuss how companies can actually be hacked and not know it. As SecurityNOW reports:
“It’s shocking to think that a company and its resources can be exposed for three, six, or more months and never have a clue. In fact, new reports tell us that your company probably has been hacked already, whether or not you have safeguards in place. Companies need to take the threat of compromise seriously. Anti-virus and anti-malware software isn’t enough, nor is it always effective.
It’s clear that current real-time security processes are simply ineffective at detecting post-compromise activity, especially as time passes after the initial breach. Advanced persistent threats (APTs), hackers, malware, viruses, phishing schemes, and over-the-network hacks are a constant and continuous threat. The only way to know if you’ve been hacked is with a thorough search for rootkits, Trojan horses, viruses, and other malware infections and signs of hacking.”
In this 19 minute podcast, Infocyte Founder Chris Gerritz provides an overview of the problem and introduces the Infocyte HUNT product as a solution to finding threats on your network.
