Credit Card Exfiltration

If an attacker succeeds in compromising a system that holds sensitive credit card information, they still have to find way to get that data out. Credit card exfiltration refers to how a malicious party extracts sensitive credit card information out of a breached network.

Threatcare provides proactive cyber defense solutions by providing cloud-based simulations, enabling companies to discover if they are at risk. Simulating attacks should be a regular practice at every company.

Detect Credit Card Exfiltration

Credit card exfiltration detection is important for protecting sensitive data. Attackers can compromise your network, obtain sensitive data and through advanced techniques, tactics, and procedures (TTPs) and exfiltrate credit cards exfiltration bypassing traditional security tools. Threatcare helps you fine-tune your cybersecurity stack to help prevent this and other threats.

Organizations that transfer sensitive data online need to practice defense in depth. Focusing on securing your external-facing networks is not enough. In order to address these threats you must implement multiple layers of security controls throughout your network, also known as “defense-in-depth.” Network defense-in-depth alongside continuous monitoring and testing ensures long-term security. Conversely, ignoring important red flags insecurity will lead to an organization’s loss of records, money, and reputation.

Adversaries can compromise organizations through social engineering attacks like spear phishing. Once the network is penetrated, there needs to be multiple layers of defense to detect and defend against further exploitation. Companies hit by a successful spear phishing attack in the past 12 months suffered an average financial cost of $1.6 million.  One in six companies reported a decrease in stock price as the result of a spear phishing attack.

Though user training and external-internal assessments are effective they’re not enough. This is called a single point of failure (SPOF), which is the opposite of defense-in-depth.

Avoid being a victim of credit card exfiltration by making sure you are properly protected with Threatcare.
