When it comes to protecting your organization from cyber-attacks, you want to ensure that no vulnerabilities are left exposed. Beauceron Security and rSolutions have partnered to provide you with a layered cybersecurity approach to protecting your organization that mitigates any threats slipping through the cracks.
rSolutions provides managed cybersecurity services built to support you from the start (of your endpoint) to the end(point). Each organization is faced with unique cyber risk and your defense will depend on the strategy that best suits your specific needs. Our focus is on you. Whether you’re looking to increase your technical security, empower your human defense with awareness training or test penetrability, we work with you to make sure each layer of security adds to your organization’s cyber risk posture.
Layers of security provide you with the best results. If you’re only using one layer of security such as a firewall or end-point detection, this can only get you so far. When you layer multiple methods of securing your organization, you’re better prepared to stop a potential attack from getting through. We use multiple layers for predicting and responding to security incidents that follow the security in depth mantra.
While your technical security may be airtight, we add another layer by empowering your employees to recognize and report any cyber threats that may have slipped past the technical layer.
The human layer of cybersecurity has traditionally been underinvested in by organizations as cyber has often been seen as an information technology issue – yet 80% of all attacks target humans. By educating your human layer of security in cyber best practices, and keeping them informed on the latest emerging threats, you add an additional layer of security to your organization by fostering a culture of positive behavior change.
“The word ‘cyber’ itself points to the importance of people,” says David Shipley, Beauceron Security CEO. “Cyber comes from the Greek word ‘Kubernetes’ and means people, technology and control. Successful organizations create positive security awareness, behavior and culture by investing in helping people not just know more about cyber, but care more about how they can be secure while doing their jobs.”
We strive to empower people to be in control of the technology they use every day. An aware and engaged community is a critical defense against cyber-attacks, which is why we aim to make employees more informed and resilient to threats through our motivational approach to education. By building upon your employees’ knowledge with meaningful education in a positive learning environment, you can influence behavior and help them understand their role in protecting the organization.
It can sometimes seem like you’re constantly under attack. There seems to be an endless barrage of email, voice, messaging and other social engineering attacks and the sophistication of these attacks grow every day. One thing we can do to help is to minimize the decision-making process that happens when an email comes in that was unexpected. Overall, organizations are doing a better job at getting people to not click on links from unwanted mail. However, the thing that people might not be doing is reporting that they received something that they didn’t want. This is not so good. That email could have been one of a million sent out, or it could have been something targeted to the organization. Knowing they (whoever they are) is half the battle, so rather than having people ignore unwanted mail, wouldn’t it be better if the default reaction was to press a button, answer a couple of questions and know that someone else is dealing with it?
Enter the PhishForward button. Got a suspected malicious email? Click the PhishForward button. One slipped by and after you clicked on it your spidey sense went off? Click the PhishForward button. Got spam that you really wish would just go away? Click the PhishForward button.
Great! Everyone now has a simple way to report emails, be they suspicious or unwanted and we’re getting all this useful information.
Notice that word all. There’s potentially a lot of unwanted mail coming into your organization that has been phish forwarded. Now what do we do with it?
Enter the Beauceron Analyst. The Beauceron Analyst adds another layer of security with automatic threat detection and response. The Analyst gathers insights and automatically actions reported emails which saves your team time from combing through reported emails. The Analyzer ML, a part of the Analyst, is a machine learning algorithm tuned to minimize false negatives when analyzing reported emails. This newest enhancement released in May of this year uses machine learning to predict if reported emails are phish or spam. Research shows that the Analyzer ML currently detects 90% of phish correctly, catching 9 out of 10 threats.
When someone submits an email, The Beauceron Analyst automatically conducts tests for technical indicators of phishing attacks which, in combination with our custom rules will automatically direct spam to your spam lists, determine the likeliness the reported email is a legitimate phishing attack and how fast we need to react. Finally, and maybe most important for building a culture of awareness, it can engage your team members with automated rewards for reporting real phishing attacks. Working together with the human layer of security, the Analyst improves employee engagement by automatically closing the feedback loop when an email is reported. Encouraging and acknowledging people for using the PhishForward button with the power of the Analyst will help us to get early visibility into unwanted email and email attacks, and as we like to say at rSolutions, visibility drives action.
