Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are a type of cyber attack that is characterized by its stealthy and prolonged nature, making them difficult to detect and respond to

Blue Rings


One of the first steps in detecting and responding to APTs in OT systems is to implement advanced monitoring and detection tools that can identify unusual or suspicious activity on the network

Blue Rings


This can include tools such as intrusion detection and prevention systems      (IDPS), security information and event management (SIEM) systems, and network traffic analysis tools.

To enhance detection capabilities, organizations should also implement endpoint protection software on all devices connected to the OT network

Regular security assessments and penetration testing can also help organizations identify potential vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could be exploited by APTs

Blue Rings


Organizations should also conduct regular security awareness training to educate employees on how to recognize and report suspicious activity

Blue Rings


Organizations should have a well-defined incident response process and incident response team that can quickly and efficiently respond to APTs and minimize the impact of an attack.

Quite often, APT attacks can be devastating and will require an additional capabilities such as network segmentation, Threat intelligence and managed services.
