BAE's Dave Gormley Outlines 6 Levels for Sophisticated Cyber Threat Mgmt - top government contractors - best government contracting event

cybersecurityDave Gormley, a cybersecurity product specialist at BAE Systems, has recommended a six-level framework from research company Forrester he believes can help organizations to avoid advanced targeted attacks.

He outlined three of six steps that comprise Forrester’s Targeted Attack Hierarchy of Needs in a blog entry posted Monday.

Gormley said the first strategy in the framework calls for organizations to examine the current threat landscape and identify risks that can potentially have the greatest impact on their business operations.

He also proposed that organizations invest in programs to recruit and retain talented security professionals as well as to further develop their skills through training and education.

Adoption of cybersecurity fundamentals can also aid in compliance efforts and help reduce the number of lower level attacks, according to Gormley.

“This includes security monitoring and management, along with ensuring the core controls are in place to prevent gaps in perimeter security,” he added.
