What Is Cyber-Resilience?

Cyber Resiliency is the (business aligned) enabling enterprise resiliency capability to accelerate trust, reliability, and survivability during times of adverse conditions, crisis,

and business volatility. Cyber Resiliency enables business growth during adverse times by providing a robust and resilient platform for digital transformation, business modernization, and the opening of new channels and business opportunities for customers, stakeholders, and employees.

Emerging Trends, Top Cyber Security Concerns

“As organizations across the globe struggle to tackle the operational, strategic and financial impact of COVID-19, more agile and growth-centric organizations have seen this as an opportunity to leapfrog competitors within their specific industries and bring new products and experiences to their customers. These organizations embrace enterprise resiliency and the need to ‘pivot’ to grow their business when faced with adversities.”3

Enterprise growth initiatives need to factor in the following trends when assessing their cyber-resilience strategies:

  • Privacy regulations and the need to adhere to increased complexities they introduce
  • Software supply chains and the shift required to ensure secure code is embedded into the software development lifecycle
  • Accelerated digital transformation with the movement of enterprise applications between cloud/multi-cloud and on-prem domains
  • The proliferation of connected devices brought about by greater adoption of IoT
  • Digital identities and ensuring appropriate governance no matter whether human or a technical element

More than half of all respondents indicated that data breaches were the biggest concern. The ramifications of a data breach are far-reaching. In addition to potential fines incurred by violating data protection mandates, and/or legal liability that the organization must bear, the damage to the company’s brand and reputation due to the loss of trust from customers can have a long-term impact.

Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) systems and security information and event management (SIEM) systems are two important aspects of productive security operations.

Fortify: Application Security

Build secure software fast. Our application security platform automates testing throughout the CI/CD pipeline so developers can quickly resolve issues.

Application security begins in your application development process. Testing needs to be scalable, flexible for on-premises or on-demand, and integrate with your DevOps. It should include developer-friendly processes and the code should be easily navigable.

Interset: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Augment human intelligence with machine intelligence to strengthen your cyber resilience.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) are important contributors to effective cyber resilience. With the mountains of data generated by security solutions, the use of systems that can analyze behaviors and risk and automate response can significantly increase an organization’s ability to intelligently adapt to vulnerabilities and attacks.

NetIQ: Identity & Access Management

Centrally manage identities and privileges for all users, devices, things, and services.

Identity and access management is the ability to manage the “who” (employees, customers) and “what” (devices, services) that access your systems and data. It enables you to develop trusted identities with the right level of access. Knowing the normal patterns of these identities makes it easier to identify when abnormal patterns appear.

Voltage: Data Privacy & Protection

Discover, analyze, and protect sensitive structured and unstructured data, reduce breach risk, and enable data usability with privacy across hybrid IT.

Ensuring data security is a primary component of both cybersecurity and cyber resiliency. This includes data in both structured and unstructured formats. You need to be able to analyze the data you have, as well as glean important insights so you can stay compliant with privacy and other governmental regulations.

Technology Outcomes

Augmented Detect and Response

Augmented, intelligence-supported threat hunters represent the next evolution of cybersecurity. While machines can sift through huge volumes of data to answer key questions, they cannot replace humans, especially when dealing with cyberattacks. Humans are infinitely better at knowing which questions to ask.

With CyberRes, customers can:

AUGMENT SECURITY OPERATIONS AND PROTECT DATA

The amount of data that requires protection is immense and growing by the day, yet teams are understaffed. Your information and security operations need the help of pragmatic

AI applications that minimize wasted time and maximize productivity. A well-designed augmented security ecosystem provides intelligence across all related functions, increasing the collective intelligence and efficiency and minimizing risk exposure.

DELIVER A UNIFIED AND HOLISTIC RISK VIEW OF ALL USERS AND DEVICES

A common holistic understanding of risk is crucial to prioritize your team’s precious capacity. An augmented intelligence system provides your team with a common relative score for all identities, human and non-human. It brings together the results from different algorithms in a way that is intuitive and actionable, using discipline and rigor in all data science operations.

PROTECT IOT, ICS, AND OT NETWORKS

Securing mission-critical infrastructure from network threats is a key challenge that traditional solutions can’t address. New security approaches are needed to protect your Industrial Control Systems (ICS), Internet of Things (IoT), and Operational Technology (OT) networks. Our research on ICS, IoT, and OT network cyberattacks found that all sophisticated cyberattacks are “indirect.” They don’t directly attack ICS, but target IT or third-party vendor networks first. More than 80 percent of the adversary’s efforts were staged in IT networks.

Augmented Intelligence solutions (which are based on unsupervised machine learning with human-machine partnership) can help detect suspicious behavior, enabling you to stop them before they find the gate to your ICS, IoT, or OS network.

PARTNER WITH AUGMENTED DETECTION AND RESPONSE AS A SERVICE

Building out and maintaining a big data platform isn’t practical for all organizations, especially smaller ones. A SaaS option solves this problem, making this critical capability available to everyone. Without the need to deploy and monitor complex systems, even small

organizations can benefit from advanced capabilities—whether it augments their own security operations team or the team of a managed service security provider (MSSP).

INCORPORATE FLEXIBLE AND ADAPTIVE AUGMENTED INTELLIGENCE

To leverage your existing ecosystem (including your perimeter point solutions), rules engines, and other existing analytics, you need an Augmented Intelligence solution that incorporates the ability to ingest, integrate, and synthesize all of these inputs. These capabilities ensure that risk scoring is holistic and inclusive and that the AI fulfills its promise as a true force multiplier for detection and response.

With CyberRes, customers can:

MAKE IDENTITY GOVERNANCE THE FOUNDATION

Manage who has access to critical applications and data on-premises and in the cloud.

With CyberRes Identity Governance, you can collect and visualize identities and entitlements across your ecosystem. It collects user entitlement information in real time across multiple systems, applications, and data and automates the process of access request approvals.

CyberRes Identity Governance enables your organization to make continuous access decisions, ensuring that you are never out of compliance and are continuously reducing risk.

BUILD ON ACCESS CONTROLS TO MITIGATE RISK

Your organization’s workforce is shifting. An increasing number of contractors, partners, and service providers need efficient, consistent, and secure access to corporate data—no matter where the application or data is deployed. Using rich insights based on identity relationships, you can deliver the right authentication and authorization controls based on risk profiles and use cases. It is critical to deploy a centralized framework to ensure consistent controls that remove silos and security gaps that provide opportunities for exploitation. CyberRes NetIQ Access Management solutions centralize access controls to improve business efficiency and provide accurate, timely access to applications and data.

GOVERN ACCESS TO MISSION-CRITICAL DATA

You need to ensure that the right identities have the right access to all data types. You also need to determine where the data is housed, what type of data it is, and how it is controlled by applications. Mission-critical data lives as structured, file-based, and unstructured data—and you need to govern it all. Lack of data governance for file-based information (over 80 percent of an organization’s data) presents significant breach and non-compliance risks. Meeting compliance standards creates challenges for your data governance practices. CyberRes Data Access Governance solutions enable you to replace time-consuming, manual processes with automated, continuous governance to better protect your most vulnerable data from the risks of unauthorized access.

Secure Development and Test

Automating and integrating scanning and testing into each phase of the SDLC identifies internal and open source risks, enforces policies, and remediates vulnerabilities. Building AppSec into your organization with Fortify is easy and flexible and helps to ensure high-quality, secure application software.

With CyberRes, customers can:

BUILD SECURITY INTO THE DEVELOPMENT PIPELINE

Shifting security left in the SDLC is the most efficient means of engineering secure applications. However, the velocity of development can make this a daunting task. Integrating security intelligence into dev pipelines optimizes the power of automation for agility, speed, innovation, and delivery to efficiently identify software risks, enforce policies, and remediate any vulnerabilities.

MANAGE THE RISKS INHERENT IN USING OPEN SOURCE COMPONENTS

When deploying open source coding frameworks, you should account for the potential risks and trade-offs inherited from these components. In today’s environment, where most applications have numerous open source issues and most organizations have hundreds (if not thousands) of applications, auditing these issues is a huge bottleneck. Open source scanning tools put a spotlight on general risks associated with open source components. Now, with susceptibility analysis, developers and AppSec engineers can automatically understand whether a vulnerability has been actually invoked in your applications and

whether attacker-controlled input reaches that function—saving thousands of hours of time.

SECURE PROGRAMMING

When developers write software, they sometimes make mistakes. Left undetected, these mistakes can lead to unintentional vulnerabilities that potentially compromise that software or the data it processes. Developers can reduce unintentional code-level security vulnerabilities by leveraging secure coding standards; selecting the most appropriate (and safe) languages, frameworks, and libraries; ensuring their proper use (especially use of their security features); and using automated analysis tools for static code analysis. Enabling developers to find security bugs within their native IDE environment in real time or when they check in code minimizes the costs of insecure coding or developer mistakes.

SECURE TEST DATA FOR ANALYTICS AND DATA PRIVACY

Sending data offshore for dev and test is common practice. However, most data loss occurs from non-production copies of live production system data. Production copies hold sensitive customer data. Many copies of the database are made in order to support testing in different test environments. Whether ISO, Data Privacy, PCI, or other, best practices for regulatory compliance require live personal data to be anonymized in test. What’s needed is effective data protection for meaningful test and analytics. Reduce risks and increase compliance by anonymizing test data while maintaining the format and the meaning of the original data using NIST-approved algorithms.

SUPPORT MORE SCANS

Applications are exploding in volume and development velocity, overwhelming AppSec teams and processes. A resilient application security testing program supports extensible scanning capacity, from 1 scan to 1+n. It’s about having the burst capability that you can turn on when you hit a threshold. Scale the static (SAST) and dynamic (DAST) testing in your CI/CD processes to the hundreds or even thousands of scans required. Leverage on-premises, on-demand, or a hybrid of both to best suit your testing needs.

Zero Trust

Your organization needs a new security model that more effectively adapts to the complexity placed on today’s security ecosystem. This includes managing people, devices, apps,

and data wherever they’re located. Zero Trust is a journey to better security. To achieve a true Zero Trust architecture, you need to look at your environment holistically because every piece plays a role. Identity and access management lays the foundation to drive insight and intelligence as you continuously verify every identity.

With CyberRes, customers can:

LEVERAGE IDENTITY AS THE FOUNDATION FOR ZERO TRUST SECURITY

Security and Risk leaders have been given a digital transformation mandate to drive their organization into the future. Zero Trust supports digital transformation with an identity-centric approach that ensures security and enables an optimal user experience. In a Zero Trust architecture, you need to know which identities exist and their relationships across the environment. This requires a solid identity platform to support the Zero Trust ecosystem

and drive cyber resiliency. CyberRes Zero Trust Security enables organizations to quickly determine if identities should have access to the resources and data requested, based on risk profiles and the behavior of the identity type.

CONQUER THE AUTHENTICATION CHALLENGE OF ZERO TRUST

As an organization’s environment continues to expand, the transformation impacts their cyber resiliency and increases the need for a Zero Trust model. This higher level of digital security morphs identity verification from a one-time event to a model where nothing consuming protected information is trusted by default. Ensuring that the right level of access is given to an identity will protect applications and data beyond the native tools or siloed implementations. CyberRes solutions help you build context-aware security. Adaptive access controls with intelligence enable you to provide a frictionless user experience, identify and encrypt data (at rest and in motion), and learn from identity activities on your path to Zero Trust security.

INCORPORATE INTELLIGENCE THAT DRIVES ZERO TRUST ACCESS CONTROL

As organizations elevate their security to a Zero Trust level, they need to consider how to position their ecosystem to adopt changing technologies and compliance requirements and improve their cyber resilience. Integrating artificial intelligence into the security ecosystem enables IT security teams to improve the overall security posture—one that learns from user behaviors to build a more comprehensive baseline to better determine deviations from desired states or identify threats beyond the capabilities of traditional security capabilities. CyberRes solutions provide the identity information and business context needed to make accurate and effective decisions in a Zero Trust model.
