For organizations today, digital engagement means business. Customers expect to engage during their everyday lives with their banks, retailers, utilities and other businesses through online portals, social media and mobile apps. Businesses are investing digitally to market, recruit customers, create community and maintain satisfaction.
Organizations must be prepared to handle the new threats they will encounter and the sheer scale of the risk. Cybercriminals capitalize on this new and largely unprotected attack surface – relying on fraudulent mobile applications, spoofed domains and impersonating accounts to engage with your customers in the same way they would engage with their legitimate providers. Through impersonation and fraud, attackers gain access to your customers, their information and their money, leveraging your brand and the trust that you have worked so hard to build. Adversaries also leverage digital platforms to launch phishing attacks on your employees and gain a foothold in your network.
Mitigating this risk requires a wholesale re-thinking of the traditional SOC – where protecting your data, networks and employees was paramount – to a more expansive approach that includes exposures originating outside your firewall and likely your control. Continuous monitoring, diligent pursuit and rapid remediation is required to tip the balance against the attacker and motivate them to move on to softer targets.
