Detection Engineering: Regain the Advantage with SimSpace

Let’s take a quick flashback to the Mel Brooks classic, Spaceballs, for a moment… Dark Helmet has sent his troops to “comb the desert” in search of the film’s main characters. The troopers are literally using giant hair combs to sift through the desert sand and finding nothing. It’s fun to laugh at this scene, but in reality a day in the life of a cybersecurity analyst can feel a lot like this!

How to Perform a Cybersecurity Risk Assessment

A single data breach can cost millions of dollars in lost revenue, damage your reputation, and result in regulatory fines.

What is a Red Team Exercise and Why Is It Important? | SimSpace

An actual cyber attack shouldn't be the first time your team responds to a cybersecurity incident. Just like a firefighter wouldn't run into a burning building without prior training and experience, cybersecurity professionals need preparation and practice before responding to real-world threats. That’s where red team exercises shine. Red team exercises are simulated attacks designed to challenge and test an organization's defenses, incident response capabilities, preparedness, and overall resilience. The results yielded can help organizations identify and fix vulnerabilities in their security systems, enabling better prevention, detection, and response to cyberattacks.

What is a Firewall?

I am continuing my series of blogs that spends time discussing the components of the network and network security stack. Many/most organizations will have the basic components of the stack, and as we move towards other tools and solutions that fit further out on the edge of the stack, some may fall off. However, that doesn’t mean it will remain that way. As we all know, technology, networking, security and threats constantly evolves.
