ADVANCED PERSISTENT THREAT'S ( APT )
Sophisticated cyber-espionage operations aimed at
pilfering trade secrets and other sensitive data from
corporate networks currently present the biggest
threat to businesses. Advanced threat actors
ranging from nation-state adversaries to organized
cyber-crime gangs are using zero-day exploits,
customized malware toolkits and clever social
engineering tricks to break into corporate networks,
avoid detection, and steal valuable information over
an extended period of time.
WHAT IS AN APT?
The term APT, which stands for Advanced Persistent Threat,
is a computer network attack that allows an adversary
(usually a highly skilled and well-funded hacking group) to
gain access to a network and stay there undetected over an
These threat actors use a cocktail of spear-phishing attacks,
zero-day exploits, SQL-injection techniques, customized
malware, drive-by downloads and clever social engineering
to hack into computer systems. Once a machine is
compromised, APT groups use sophisticated network tools to
burrow deep into a corporate network and maintain
persistence over a period of time before finding valuable
data to hijack and transmit to command-and-control servers
around the world.
Examples of successful APT attacks litter the news
landscape with victims ranging from Lockheed Martin, SONY,
Google, Adobe and RSA to highly classified government and
diplomatic institutions around the world. However, it’s
important for businesses of every size to understand that
the tools and capabilities used by well-funded APT groups
are being used by cyber-criminal gangs and the majority of
these network breaches are never publicly reported.
