The books are closed on another insightful Gartner Security Summit. The combination of C-level insights along with actionable practices for security professionals makes the Gartner Security Summit one of the few security conferences where substance is a key focus over the traditional spectacle seen at most other such events.
This year’s summit made it clear that cyber bad guys aren’t standing still and that they continue to find new ways to perpetrate cybercrime. The challenge for security professionals is to prioritize where to invest resources to most effectively reduce security risk while supporting digital business initiatives.
Gartner Top 10 Cybersecurity Projects for 2018
Fortunately, Gartner VP and Distinguished Analyst, Neil MacDonald helped cut through the noise and summarized the key projects that CISOs need to focus on in a session titled ‘Top 10 Cybersecurity Projects for 2018.” MacDonald recommends CISOs “Focus on projects that reduce the most amount of risk and have the largest business impact.” Not surprisingly, anti-phishing made the list:
Privileged account management
CARTA-inspired vulnerability management
Application control on server workloads
Microsegmentation and flow visibility
Detection and response
Cloud security posture management (CSPM)
Automated security scanning
Cloud access security broker (CASB)
Why Anti-Phishing ?
Phishing continues to be the cause of 95% of cyber breaches, and the time and expense spent remediating attacks have a big impact on security resources, business productivity, and financials. It’s clear that blocking phishing attacks meets Gartner’s criteria for reducing the most amount of risk and having a high business impact.
For enterprises that are experiencing phishing attacks, Gartner recommends that they prioritize an anti-phishing project. Ideally, organizations should deploy technical controls to block as many phishing attacks as possible, supplementing any user training or awareness programs that are already in use. Specifically, organizations should look towards next generation technical controls to block phishing attacks at the outset and close the current gaps that exist.
Area 1 Security is honored to have been mentioned by Gartner in the session as a “state of the art technology” that helps stop phishing. Specifically, Gartner highlighted how Area 1 Security is like a Google, preemptively crawling the world’s websites and using big data and machine learning to identify phishing sites as they’re constructed and then proactively blocking attacks before they impact end users.

Business Email Compromise (BEC), also sometimes referred to as email account compromise (EAC) or vendor email compromise (VEC), is a type of phishing attack that takes advantage of an existing relationship between a victim and organization.
