Over the past several years, a term has steadily crept into the minds of IT Security analysts and into the presentations of vendors everywhere: Advanced Persistent Threat (APT). It seems like every vendor has a solution to deal with APT or a ‘magic bullet’ to protect your organization by sniffing it out and eradicating it from your environment. This leaves many IT organizations wondering what’s real, what’s marketing fluff and what they should be doing to protect their organizations as attackers and threats become more advanced. In this article, we’ll explore the concepts behind APT and introduce you to the different pieces of the puzzle – the actors, the threats and the techniques.

I don't totally agree to certain aspects of the presentation but this doesn't mean they are not right or well said. It all depends on the strategy of those IT organizations after all.
