I'm pleased to introduce myself to the Security Bistro community and hope that you welcome this video blog with open arms. The Corero Network Security team and I are excited to introduce a reoccurring monthly video post that aims to dissect and analyze the various cyber attack types that are infiltrating network environments across the globe.
This v-blog, featuring (yours truly) Chief Security Evangelist, Stephen Gates of Corero Network Security takes a deeper dive into Pre-Attack Recon Scans to review:
- What are these attacks?
- Why are they an emerging threat, or continue to be a successful attack tool?
- What is the potential damage/risk?
- What are the early warning signs of this type of attack?
- Recommendations for detection/mitigation
