The problem is only getting worse, and our government isn't coming to the rescue.

In this Security School, Peter Sullivan explores why enterprises are failing to detect Regin-style advanced threats, and discusses how to realign people, processes and technology to reduce the risk by giving enterprises a fighting chance. The key, he says, is network anomaly detection.
