Zero-day exploits: How risky are they for businesses?

You can’t prevent attacks you don’t know about, but there are ways to detect adversaries using a zero-day exploit to target your business. Spotting attacks utilizing zero-day exploits involves monitoring for unusual activity that deviates from normal operations, says Michael Skelton VP of security operations and hacker success at Bugcrowd.

This includes unexpected system behavior, unexplained network traffic spikes and irregularities in user account activities, he says. Tools such as intrusion detection systems (IDS) and security information and event management (SIEM) systems can aid in detecting these anomalies, he adds.
