For most organizations the introduction of an MSS provider solved the problem of having spent substantial amounts of their budgets on host and network-based intrusion detection devices that they couldn’t afford to manage, but one perhaps unseen problem remained. The first ticket you spot informs you that someone coming from an IP address located in China has been scanning several specific port ranges on one of your development networks. A note on the ticket says the event has reoccurred several times over the last three days.

Due to often large data volumes, data must be categorized and attributed to adversary properties for us to stand a chance of understanding it, and if we were to attempt any kind of detailed characterization, high data volumes would make this impossible without such a methodology. Data Relevancy Issues Certain types of characterization data are often only of relevance in certain cases. Indeed, the data that is available regarding a subject will also differ from case to case. For this reason, use of a single metric and lack of a methodology for breaking down an adversary’s individual properties would probably result in a certain amount of the subject data being of no relevance to your circumstance, potentially skewing your final result.

They are hard to defend against in a large company because everyone generally wants to help each other out, and the right hand usually doesn’t know what the left is up to. Because these attacks are voice-oriented, they can be performed from anyplace in the world where a phone line is available. When criminals combine these attacks, they can truly be scary. Only the most paranoid can defend against them, and the cost of being paranoid is often prohibitive to even the largest company. Those who know me know that I love telling stories, and I am going to tell you one to illustrate how hard it is from the defenders standpoint to understand the motivations of an attacker.
