By Dan Hadaway | Tuesday, December 16, 2008 - Leave a Comment

Over the past year, there has been a considerable spike in cyber attacks against the financial services and the online retail industry. There are a number of actions a firm can take in order to prevent or thwart the specific attacks and techniques used by these intruders. The following steps can be taken to reduce the likelihood of a similar compromise while improving an organization’s ability to detect and respond to similar incidents quickly and thoroughly.

With this in mind, IC3 has created a “Preventative Measures” document. Performing the steps as indicated in the document may not prevent the intruders from gaining access, but they will severely impact their effectiveness based on current attack methods.
