EMEA organizations not up to the challenge of stopping advanced threats; dwell time three times longer than global average
MILPITAS, Calif. – June 16, 2016 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader at stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today announced the release of the first Mandiant® M-Trends® EMEA report. M-Trends EMEA drills down into the statistics collected during investigations conducted in EMEA by Mandiant’s leading consultants in 2015 and details leading cyber trends and tactics threat actors used to compromise businesses and steal data.
Some of the key findings include:
“With threat actors targeting EMEA organizations with a multitude of motives from strategic intelligence to media impact and brand damage, concerns around advanced cyber threats have swiftly spread from the IT department up to the boardroom,” said Bill Hau, Vice President of Mandiant Security Consulting Services, FireEye. “The majority of organizations need to move away from the traditional methodology of responding to incidents as otherwise the dwell time will not decrease at a fast enough rate. This, coupled with the fact that some EMEA governments are at various levels of maturity with their national CERT or local law enforcement mandate has resulted in businesses being under tremendous pressure to detect threats themselves and, according to our statistics, they simply have not been quick enough to do so. From our observations, there are clearly some stark contrasts between EMEA and the rest of the world, which boardrooms in the region need to address.”
