Dell SecureWorks Launches Threat Resource Center
The information allows organizations to gain knowledge of the different types of advanced threats and how threat actors operate.Dell SecureWorks, a division of the tech giant that deals solely with information security services, announced the launch of the Advanced Threat Resource Center (ATRC) to help organizations detect, resist and respond to advanced cyber-threats. The company designates advanced threats as those anywhere a determined adversary targets and attacks an organization for financial gain, intellectual property theft, intelligence collection, competitive advantage or otherwise harm an organizations reputation. Operators behind advanced threats have a spectrum of intelligence-gathering techniques at their disposal and often combine multiple techniques to access and compromise sensitive information, and information available through the ATRC gives information-security professionals access to a range of threat analyses, white papers, videos and webcasts providing information on the techniques, tools and social engineering tactics hackers use to compromise organizations.
Our Counter Threat Unit research team, which is often the first in the security industry to identify emerging threats and new exploit techniques, has engaged with a diverse range of security leaders who are actively defending against advanced threats every day, Jon Ramsey, Dell SecureWorks chief technology officer, said in a prepared statement. Collectively, we have assimilated a knowledge base that gives organizations a real-world guide on how to detect, resist, respond and mitigate the risks from these targeted threats. This new resource center contains valuable tools that help demystify advanced threats. By understanding how these advanced threats operate, organizations can better protect themselves.
