Cyber Security and Packet Capture: Making the Connection

What makes cyberattacks so tricky is that there isn’t a traditional, physical crime scene where evidence can be collected for investigation. Instead, we are facing a crime scene built from a complex structure of servers, networks and applications, scattered across many different geographical locations.

To increase the amount of evidence, we need to shift our focus away from these devices and onto the actual information traversing our networks. By collecting this type of information, we can reconstruct a complete picture of what occurred by deploying full packet capture capabilities at strategic points across the network infrastructure.
