Jon Biggs at TechCrunch recently reached out to PacketSled CEO Matt Harrigan among others to provide insight on what it means to be breached. The article, titled “So You’ve Been Breached” details the affects of several breaches from a number of angles and provides measures we can all take to prevent further mayhem.

As Anonymous was set to release identities of individuals involved in the KKK, the Hill interviewed PacketSled CEO Matt Harrigan for his take on the group’s motivations.

But others are skeptical about Anonymous’s true intentions.
“The motivation of Anonymous as a whole really is to get attention,” said Matt Harrigan, president and CEO of cyber threat detection firm PacketSled, who monitors the hacking group. “It’s a PR machine for causes that somebody inside Anonymous has decided are important.”
And the KKK makes for perfect prey.
“They’re a target because they’re obviously not well liked, but at the same time they make a great news story,” Harrigan said. “What’s the thing that people despise more than anything? An organized hate group.” [Matt Harrigan]
Operation KKK has been exhaustively making the case for its digital crusade over the last week.
PacketSled CEO @mattharrigan was quoted in eWeek regarding the recent US-China cyber pact. The article calls the pact into question after tapping sources in the cyber security industry who verify the lack of reduction in attacks emanating from Chinese nation-state backed actors.
“There is no indication from our perspective that the usual behavior from nation-state attackers in China or any other country has slowed in any way,” Harrigan told eWEEK. “It is important to remember that public-facing international policy statements are often vastly different from the reality of what happens in the world of U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies engaged in tradecraft.”

PacketSled is excited to be a Gold Sponsor of Toorcon 17 at the San Diego Westin Emerald Plaza, October 21st-25th.
Stop by the PacketSled lounge for a beverage and sticker and enter to win one of the Rasberry Pi computers we’ll be giving away at the show.
The digital forensics group test review earned PacketSled five-out-of-five stars across all categories: features, ease-of-use, performance, documentation, support and value for the money. The review also cites PacketSled’s unique visualizations, excellent analytics and ease of installation among other qualities leading to the 5 star rating.
“This is an excellent tool with depth and a massive amount of actionable information available to prevent and analyze complex breaches.”
– Dr. Peter Stephenson, SC Magazine
While the majority of solutions in the space are focused on a single threaded approach to solving for detection and response, PacketSled identifies threats using a combination of sensor based and cloud analytics, signatures, and threat intelligence, providing incident responders the ability to dive deeply into a threat, or hunt through data on a massive scale.
“We’re very pleased to be rated so highly in this group test. Continuous Monitoring, Forensics, and Incident Response are the fastest growing areas in security for good reasons. Attackers are continuously evolving their strategy, making the combination of real-time visibility with a full fidelity network history one of the most important considerations in information security,” said Matt Harrigan, the company’s President and CEO. “Our consumption-based billing and cloud model enables us to help customers in the mid-market that have previously been unable to deploy these measures due to cost considerations.”
PacketSled can ingest data at speeds ranging from sub-1Gbps to 100Gbps and can be deployed via a software install in mere minutes. The platform gives security analysts the ability to discern real attacks from noise, dramatically reducing the time it takes to resolve serious security incidents.

While Clickjacking isn’t as pervasive as it was in the mid 2000’s, hackers are getting increasingly crafty in how they deploy it.
PacketSled recently contributed research to a TechCrunch article about a particularly crafty clickjacking deployment Clickjackers: Inside The Strange New World Of Modern Spyware.
“We were able to retrieve a sample which our research team analyzed for behavioral traits and indicators. From these data points we were able to preform an analysis across our sensor network for the threat. The resulting investigation not only provided ammo for the article, it increased our customer’s security posture.” said Harrigan.
It’s all part of the day to day security research at PacketSled and the industry as a whole, but we’re very pleased to help TechCrunch get this kind of information out to the wider tech public.
