How to Defend Against Advanced Persistent Threats


Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are prolonged targeted cyberattacks.

During this type of attack, intruders access the network and attempt to remain undetected for as long as possible. This allows the bad actor to access intellectual property and other sensitive information or disrupt critical services like utilities. While these threats tend to target organizations in defense, manufacturing, and the financial industry, any organization has the potential to be vulnerable.
