Global Incident Response Threat Report (GIRTR) from Carbon Black Details Notable Rise in Island Hopping and Counter Incident Response (IR) Behaviors

Survey finds attackers 'fighting back' against security teams while also targeting supply chains With one of the most robust IR communities in cybersecurity, Carbon Black partners conduct more than one response engagement per day, on average, using Carbon Black software

WALTHAM, Mass., April 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carbon Black (NASDAQ: CBLK), a leader in cloud-delivered, next-generation endpoint security, today announced the release of its latest Global Incident Response Threat Report, aggregating key findings from IR partner investigations during the last 90 days.

Carbon Black’s 100+ IR partners conducted more than 500 response engagements in 2018 and continue to use Carbon Black solutions in more than one engagement per day, on average. The insights from the GIRTR chronicle Carbon Black partners’ experiences during these critical engagements.

Among the key findings from the report:

  • Half of today’s surveyed attacks leverage “island hopping,” the report noted, meaning attackers are not only after a network, but supply chains as well

  • More than half of survey respondents (56%) encountered instances of counter-incident response in the past 90 days

  • 70% of all attacks now involve attempts at lateral movement, according to the survey results, as attackers take advantage of new vulnerabilities and native operating system tools to move around a network

  • Nearly a third (31%) of targeted victims now experience destructive attacks, the survey noted — an alarming byproduct of attackers gaining better and more prolonged access to targets' environments

"Attackers are fighting back. They appear to have no desire to leave the environment. And they don’t just want to rob you and those along your supply chain. In the parlance of the dark web, attackers these days appear to want to ‘own’ your entire system,” said Tom Kellermann, Carbon Black’s Chief Cybersecurity Officer.

According to the survey results, the financial and healthcare industries remain most vulnerable to destructive attacks, but the threat to manufacturing companies has grown significantly. In the past 90 days, nearly 70% of all respondents saw attacks on the financial industry, followed by healthcare (61%) and manufacturing (59%, up from 41% in the previous report).

The latest GIRTR aggregates qualitative and quantitative input from 40+ Carbon Black IR partners and includes detailed case studies from BTB Security, DarkMatter and Optiv. The report’s goal is to offer actionable intelligence for business and technology leaders, fueled by analysis of the newest threats, and expert insights on how to stop them. This is Carbon Black’s third Global IR report since introducing it in July 2018.
