On average, an organization takes 287 days to detect and contain a data breach. Hackers today are very good at breaking into networks and staying undetected for long periods before executing their ultimate objectives. When a cyber incident inevitably occurs, your best bet is to assume your network is compromised and act accordingly rather than think you’re not compromised and carry on as usual.

One of the most important questions to ask yourself is: “If a hacker was in my network, would I know?” Testing your internal and external network security controls regularly is an important way to find the answer. But what happens if the Penetration Test has little or no success?

Assumed-breach testing simulates the initial foothold an attacker might obtain, allowing for more in-depth testing and providing a unique perspective of the organization’s readiness for a real-world breach. Assumed-breach testing helps answer the question of “what can happen if we were breached?”

Hacker Hour webinars are a series of free webinars hosted by SBS CyberSecurity. Unlike paid webinars, Hacker Hours are aimed to meet on a monthly basis to discuss cybersecurity issues and trends in an open format. Attendees are encouraged to join the conversation and get their questions answered. SBS will also offer products and services to help financial institutions with these specific issues.
