What is an Advanced Persistent Threat group (APT)?
An advanced persistent threat (APT) group is a cyber criminal organization or state-sponsored government group that hacks into a network in order to steal sensitive data over an extended period of time.
This could be spying from other countries or professional hackers that seek to extort money from corporations or steal government secrets.
About Critical Insight
Critical Insight is the only cybersecurity-as-a-service provider that prepares, monitors and responds to cyber threats, going beyond SOC-as-a-service offerings typical of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offerings.
With a focus on organizations that deliver critical services – hospitals, local governments, utilities, school systems, and more – we provide end-to-end support to those with limited security teams or budgets to handle threats proactively and as they occur.
Based in Bremerton and Seattle, Washington, Critical Insight is a venture-backed company founded by former CISOs in the public sector. We are committed to training new analysts and providing the most up-to-date cybersecurity protection.
