Cylance 2017 Threat Report

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customersí personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

Protecting Data Under the GDPR

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
With cybercriminals threatening nations globally, cybersecurity is taking a front seat in many regions. Most notably, the European Union (EU) has adopted regulations to combat the threats. Against the backdrop of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, the EU has set forth rules and procedures for enhanced cybersecurity, along with penalties for noncompliance, in the form of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new body of mandated policies and procedures aims to protect EU member personal information collected and/or stored by organizations. Read more in the GDPR business brief.

The Practical Application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning To Cybersecurity

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are rapidly moving beyond the realms of academia and speculative fiction to enter the commercial mainstream, with innovative products that utilize AI transforming how we access and leverage information. AI is also becoming strategically important to national defense and in securing our critical financial, energy, intelligence, and communications infrastructures against state-sponsored cyberattacks. According to an October 2016 report issued by the federal governmentís National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology (NSTCC), ďAI has important applications in cybersecurity, and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures.Ē Based on this projection, the NSTCC has issued a National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan to guide federally-funded research and development. The era of AI has most definitely arrived, but many still donít understand the basics of this im

The Security Paradox

Published By: McAfee Inc     Published Date: Oct 26, 2009
Medium organizations around the globe are increasingly concerned about cyberthreats, and the rising number of incidents shared publicly certainly justifies their worries. In the first half of 2009, for example, McAfee Labs saw almost as much new malware as it did in all of 2008. At the same time, most organizations have frozen or cut their IT security budgets. Threats up, budgets down. This is what we call the "security paradox."

When On- the-Job Training Is a Recipe for Disaster

Published By: Symantec     Published Date: Sep 14, 2015
In the running battle with cyberthreats, your first line of defense is your IT staff: the system and network administrators, SOC and NOC operators, incident response and forensics analysts, and application development and QA teams. Are these IT professionals ready to take on an ever-growing army of innovative, persistent cybercriminals and hackers? Probably not, if you expect them to acquire the knowledge and skills they need through self-directed study and on-the-job training. There is too much to learn, and few members of the IT staff have the time to research every new threat. And you canít afford to suffer through APTs, breaches and data leakages just to provide ďteachable momentsĒ for IT personnel. There is another solution. Security simulation immerses IT professionals in a realistic online environment and challenges them to fill the roles of cyberattackers and cyberdefenders. It borrows from education theory and online gaming to present knowledge in ways that motivate learning a

Cyber Resilience: Itís Not About The 98 Percent You Catch, Itís About The 2 Percent You Miss

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Feb 17, 2015
Analyst brief brought to you by NSS Labs. Where the goal of cyberprevention has been to reduce the probability of an attack against the organization, cyber resilience looks to reduce the impact of these attacks through cyber risk management. A cyber resilience program still considers detection and prevention techniques, but it also assumes that a breach is likely. This stance emphasizes anticipation, agility, and adaptation. Not every attack can be prevented, but with a cyber resilience program, damage can be mitigated or avoided altogether.

Assessing the Business Value of Endpoint Specialized Threat Analysis and Protection Solutions

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 19, 2016
Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s
