The digital world is oftentimes like a jungle, with its own set of dangers. Chief among these dangers are cyber attacks. Unfortunately, 79% of organizations are struggling to detect threats hidden within encrypted traffic. In the past two years, we have had an alarming increase in cyber attacks. In 2021, there have been 1.5 more ransomware attacks than in 2020. Furthermore, there have been 236.1 million ransomware attacks worldwide in the first half of 2022 alone. With these shocking revelations, we have to face the truth: traditional security approaches are failing. Live Action took a deep dive into the reason why our security approaches are failing.
The first thing they found is that detecting a breach is far too slow as it takes on average 287 days increasing the chance for a said breach to be successful. In 2022, the dwell time between stealth intrusions and attacks increased by 36%, leaving a narrow window to detect and stop intrusions. For example, the median intruder dwell in 2020 was 11 days, following the year after an increase to 15 days dwell time. Some other stats they have mentioned is that 80% of network traffic can no longer be inspected with legacy tools. 72% of attackers destroy logs covering their tracks making it harder to trace the attack. To mitigate these problems, analysts must respond to a high volume of alerts without knowing which is the greatest threat.
