Threat actors in the Energy and Utilities sector target executives, employees, and contractors with privileged technical access to operational technology and front desk employees with privileged access to information technology. Their main motive is financial, and their main goal is to deploy and detonate ransomware payloads. They rely on spear phishing and exploit infrastructure and supply chain vulnerabilities (human and technical) to execute their attack plan. But first, they conduct target reconnaissance to identify opportunities to attack and build dossiers of their intended victims by leveraging open source intelligence sources (OSINT) in the open, deep, and dark web, looking at professional and personal digital identities.
Picnic taps into the same OSINT sources hackers use, and it operates its proprietary technology to analyze human risk, predict attack pathways, and deliver prioritized remediations that harden your human attack surface to prevent social engineering attacks that can impact operations. By partnering with Picnic to make their organizations a tough target for attackers very early in the attack planning phase, our customers see a quantifiable reduction in impersonation, spear phishing, and credential stuffing attacks.
Picnic delivers security outcomes
Why reduce human risk, and why now?
A third of all employees believe cybersecurity is not a top priority of theirs at work.
Nine out of ten cyber attacks start with a phishing email.
Almost half of the population believes an email is safe if it contains familiar branding.
The number of cyber attacks in the Energy and Utilities sector grew more than one hundred percent in the last year.
Stop reacting. Start preempting.
A defense-in-depth strategy begins beyond traditional security controls to stop phishing, smishing, and vishing attacks before they start.
