Exfiltration is the process of data leaving the network manually (carried out by a hacker or through malicious programming). If an adversary can successfully penetrate networks, data exfiltration can take place, putting an organizations most sensitive and private information at risk.
Threatcare’s Violet platform offers proactive cyber defense by providing cloud-based intrusion simulations. Intrusion simulations enable companies to know — without a doubt — if they are protected or not. Organizations can use “perfect practice” while using Violet to train security professionals how to respond to real-world threats. Data exfiltration can take many forms, without proper defense-in-depth, sensitive information can find its way outside the network.
Medical Record Exfiltration: Medical record exfiltration is a major security issue. The nature of our medical system requires that, at any given time, our medical data can be stored with several different parties: health care providers, insurance providers, and other supporting parties. If just one party isn’t properly protected, data from medical records can easily be vulnerable.
Credit Card Exfiltration: Credit card exfiltration detection is important for protecting sensitive data. Attackers can compromise a network while obtaining sensitive data through advanced techniques, tactics, and procedures (TTPs) to exfiltrate credit cards while bypassing traditional security tools.
SSN Exfiltration: SSN exfiltration should be taken very seriously. Unlike a credit card number, a social security number can’t be changed. A social security number is the most basic form of identification many people have — and is also the foundation of many identity verification systems (for both the government and financial institutions).
