SC 1 (1)

Supply chain attacks use trusted third parties, such as business partners or customers, to progress the attack.

Auditing every business in your supply chain to ensure their security policies and controls meet your standards is extremely difficult, and there will always be a weak link.

A common attack involves a bad actor using a compromised email account to exploit a trusted sender/recipient relationship.

Once an attacker has control of a legitimate email account, they can easily launch a phishing or BEC attack on trusted parties up and down the supply chain.

THE CHALLENGE

Attacks are evading existing defenses

Why are supply chain attacks so hard to stop?

THE OLD METHODOLOGY

Undetected account takeovers

Before cloud applications, to compromise your business partner’s email accounts, a bad actor would first have to gain a foothold inside their perimeter.

Many security controls were designed specifically to protect against this eventuality, from firewalls and intrusion prevention systems to endpoint security.

Today, applications are connected directly to the internet, making it far easier for a bad actor to takeover an email account and remain undetected.

This puts the onus on you to protect your organization from email threats.

However, these attacks are evading detection by not only traditional defenses like secure email gateways and the native security offered by email platforms, they are also evading the most recent detection technologies that rely on social or identity graphs.

SC 3
THE NEW METHOD

Social graphing and trust levels

Social graph technologies understand relationships between senders and recipients and build trust levels based on the proximity of those relationships as well as direct relationships.

This is of little use to protect against a malicious email that was sent from someone in your trusted supply chain.

Egress never trusts an inbound email regardless of who it is from.

Even if it was sent from an account that the recipient communicates with directly on a regular basis, the emails enter the contextual content and behavior analysis engines with a zero-trust score.

The social graph trust level is combined with hundreds of other features to determine whether an email might be suspicious.
