How to slow down a cyber attack

South African organisations are favourite targets for cyber crime gangs. This revelation is not new: numerous reports and studies from insurance underwriters and cyber security firms underscore the concern. 

Events on the ground echo their warnings: prominent recent examples include pharmacy retail giant Dischem losing 3.6 million records to a breach and criminals grabbing a staggering 54 million user records from TransUnion. There is no shortage of more local examples, and security, IT and business professionals are under mounting pressure to reduce these risks in a constantly shifting landscape.

We can glean important guidance to the most effective strategies by studying significant attacks. Specifically, the recent breach of Uber's systems provides an excellent case study of how one could slow down a cyber attack.
