How can I contain these threats by End-users protect?

If something doesn’t look right, the cybersecurity solution should automatically step up authentication requirements or revoke access. And if the end user is highly vulnerable or targeted, you should take proactive measures to protect those accounts.

At the same time, your data loss protection (DLP) tools should work automatically and transparently to contain the potential harm of comprised accounts.

The most effective cybersecurity solutions put all of these pieces together for a full-picture view of which end users have access to what data and how it’s being used.

Beyond preventing ever-evolving technical exploits, you can prevent many cyber attacks with email authentication. A modern solution must also have intelligent features to recognize and block social engineering techniques used in phishing, email fraud, and lookalike domain spoofing.

It should also make responding and remediating threats easy, orchestrating and automating key aspects of the incident response process such as:

Removing unsafe email from users’ inboxes
Restricting or revoking VPN access
Blocking access to compromised and unsafe websites and file-sharing services
Updating network access controls and application control systems

At the same time, look for incident response tools should that enrich security alerts with advanced forensics and collect and verify indicators of compromise (IOC). Beyond detailed threat intel, responders should have a full people-centric view of which end users are under security attacks, which department they work in, and whether they’ve been compromised before.

Security awareness training can also play a role in mitigating privilege-based risks. End users with access to sensitive information should be reminded of good digital hygiene practices. Heavily targeted and highly vulnerable end users should get targeted security training and be made aware of their individual risk.
