Cyber Insurance working with Cyber Defenders:

Cyber Situational Awareness is achieved by measuring the Cyber Attack Surface.

  • It’s better to detect sinister intentions early
  • Than to respond to compromised networks and conduct cyber forensics actions late

@RISK technologies employs and emphasizes the network-saving importance of cyber situational awareness.  Left of Bang, is a reference to the cyber attack timeline of a cyber incident.

  • “Bang” is when malware is deposited, the attack begins, or damage is done.
  • On a timeline moving from left to right, “right of bang”” is what happens after the incursion begins. In the worst-case scenario, you’re a casualty when you are to the right of bang.
  • Therefore, you need to stay to the Left of Bang! In that area you need to be alert, ready, prepared, and able to respond before the bad stuff happens.

Getting  Left of Bang and achieving situational awareness is possible by recognizing certain revealing characteristics that will enable one to detect potential attackers in time to avoid or upset their nefarious intent.
