APT Detection: Critical FactorsMahesh Sogane of Shell Offers Strategic Insights on Keys to Detection Success
When it comes to detecting an advanced persistent threat attack, the key to success is not only looking at what are anomalies in the network, but also understanding why certain activities are suspicious, says cybersecurity specialist Mahesh Sogane of the global oil company Shell.
"The attention to detail when things are termed as non-anomaly is where you need to look at to find that dormant file which is evading all your controls. That's the key to success to find an APT," Sogane says.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's Cybersecurity Summit in New Delhi, Sogane also discusses:
- How to detect APT attacks;
- Insights on how the APT attacks are evolving;
- Cybersecurity trends that will dominate 2020.
Sogane is the global lead, cyber defense, monitoring and incidence response, at Shell. Previously, he was the global manager for the security incident response team Goldman Sachs. He has more than two decades of experience in identifying technology risks leading to financial and business risks.
