Being aware of vulnerabilities from third party vendors is only the start of an effective third party risk management program. Businesses need to consider a comprehensive approach that implements both detection and threat response across all of their connected partners – all of their cyber attack surface. A well-orchestrated threat response poses far-reaching benefits, as well as technical challenges on a business’ security infrastructure, including how to use threat intelligence and deception technologies across their organization. This presentation explores the challenges faced when adversaries attack businesses in a coordinated campaign and proposes how those businesses can implement effective, coordinated threat responses.
