Threat actors in the Energy and Utilities sector target executives, employees, and contractors with privileged technical access to operational technology. They also target front desk employees with privileged access to information technology. Help Desk employees, for example, are of high interest to an attacker. The threat actors’ main motive is financial; they aim to compromise organizations and their supply chains with whaling and ransomware attacks. Threat intelligence reveals that these cyber criminals rely on breached personal and work credential reuse, spear phishing, 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 threat actors 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 compromise your people and business. 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.
