The conflict in Ukraine has highlighted the risks of cyberespionage and sabotage, which typically involve Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) groups. In this special edition of Week in security, Tony looks at:
- what the term “Advanced Persistent Threat” actually describes and what the objectives of groups behind these attacks are
- what some of the most dangerous APT groups are and their activities have also been analyzed by ESET researchers recently
- what kinds of mitigation measures organizations can implement so they protect their data from advanced threat actors carrying out highly targeted attacks
- why it’s important to have a plan in place in case an intrusion does take place
