Protecting Organizations Against Malicious Hardware Device Attacks
Secured organizations are relatively protected against cyber attacks on their networks, applications and data infrastructure. These organizations have implemented multi-layered security infrastructures that include firewalls, IDS, IPS, email security, endpoint security suites and others that block most known cyber attacks from both the outside and inside.
However, very few organizations are focused on peripheral hardware devices as attack vehicles for penetrating their infrastructure and stealing sensitive information. Most believe they have done all they can to protect themselves with 100 percent visibility into their systems. And while securing software is a major part of an active defense, it’s not enough. Cyber criminals are using hardware ––malicious peripheral devices — as attack tools, compromising them before they are delivered to customers or tampering with them after installation during the upgrade process. There is no way to control each subcontractor, component supplier, distribution channel and carrier, integrator and installer. All of them can be the attacker or serve as the attacker’s entry point. The innocent-looking device on your desk may be your biggest security threat.
