Abstract: Despite a significant increase in the level of defence strategies across the enterprise, cyberattacks continue to have a damaging impact on organisations. Due to insufficient threat intelligence capabilities established in many organisations, attackers use this weakness to port their attack procedure and plan future attacks. From highlighting the problem to solving it, this paper explores possible attack procedures and builds awareness to shortcut the risk and reduce the possibility of compromise. It describes a case study of cyberattacks to illustrate the pros and cons of advanced detection and prevention systems.
