 Countermeasures are software or procedures used to prevent an attack. They make data breaches improbable, or unlikely to occur. Phishing detection software, user authentication systems, network intrusion detection systems, and data loss prevention systems are examples of countermeasures that can be taken by organizations. A network intrusion detection system (NIDS) used to examine traffic passing through an organization's internal network can identify possible attacks. Finally, data loss prevention systems (DLP), which are designed to prevent sensitive data from being released to unauthorized persons, can be used to stop the data from leaving the internal network. Such countermeasures help to detect and stop hacker activity at each step of data breaching.
