Cost of a Single Cyberattack

For many city and traffic employees, the threat of a data breach is a distant risk, something that only happens to other organizations. But it isn’t distant at all; it’s very real. City and critical infrastructure, like transportation, are high-value targets that are threatened and attacked daily, though most cases never make the news.

The total cost for a single cyberattack is determined by several factors: value of data, cost of downtime, and time between the hack occurring and being discovered. The best way for a city or organization to assess their cost is to identity a few potential scenarios and walk through what the likely impact would be in those situations. Three examples to walk through include: „„

 

  • What if your city lost access to a non-critical system or service?„
  • What if your city was liable for losing citizen personal or sensitive information?„„
  • What if your city’s networks were infected?

DEFEND

Services That Help Improve Security Against Outside Threats.

  • Passive Network Assessment – Macro-to-micro, non-volatile inspection of your public-facing internet presence; wireless deployment and internal network configuration. Minimal impact on your day-to-day operations providing an excellent starting point with remediation strategy included.
    „„
  • Penetration Testing – A more detailed and comprehensive review of your organization’s systems, devices, and network inside and out.
    „„
  • Employee Training – 75% or more of all data breaches are due to an internal employee making a mistake. Tricking an employee to open a file or click on a link is the lowest barrier to entry for any hacker and is the preferred means of attack.
    „„
  • Pentesting Products – Before you add a new device or product to a network, you should be asking yourself, “What potential risk does this add to our organization?” Pentesting allows you to get an independent third-party report to analyze the risk you may be unintentionally accepting.

  • Disaster Recovery Planning – Speed of response is one of the most important elements for limiting damages, cost, and amount of downtime. A well-crafted plan made in advance allows organizations to react immediately to a situation, saving precious time.

DETECT

Software That Helps Identify an Issue Immediately

  • Beowulf – An innovative, next-generation threat intelligence platform, monitoring discrete communications platforms and data dump sites hosted in the DarkNet’s and DeepWeb’s hidden services. Beowulf uses complex algorithms to interrogate data, distinguishing threat from noise; reporting accordingly.

RESPOND

Digital Forensic Incident Response (DFIR)

  • Data Breach Response – Stop the bleeding and ensure that no more damage can be done and a hacker’s access has been revoked.
