The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Compliance For Mobile Devices

Published By: MobileIron     Published Date: Aug 20, 2018
The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies. One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include: • Loss or theft of device • Unauthorized access to device • Mobile operating system vulnerabilities • Communication over untrusted networks • Malware or malicious Apps • Jailbreak or rooting activity • Data loss through user behaviors

30 minutes to a more secure enterprise

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: May 24, 2019
Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

Nothing kills attacks earlier than DNS-layer security

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: May 24, 2019
"Nothing kills attacks earlier than DNS-layer security. Protection both before and during the attack Attacks have many phases. Before launching, the attacker needs to stage internet infrastructure to support each phase. Two early phases are to redirect or link to a malicious web domain or send a malicious email attachment. For the former, most attacks leverage exploit kits (e.g. Angler) as the first stage before dropping the final payload. Cisco Umbrella effectively blocks initial exploit and phishing domains.

Privileged Account Management for Dummies

Published By: Group M_IBM Q2'19     Published Date: Apr 11, 2019
The increase in sophisticated, targeted security threats by both external attackers and malicious insiders have made it extremely difficult for organizations to properly protect critical and sensitive information. The task of protecting these assets has only grown harder as IT environments have become more complex and widely distributed across geographic locations and in the cloud. Many recent high-profile breaches have one thing in common: They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords. In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience. Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated with their compromise an

Effectively Securing Small Businesses from Online Threats

Published By: MessageLabs     Published Date: Sep 25, 2008
The Internet has proven to be a vital communications medium for worldwide commerce, but as an open and unprotected global network it can also present a wide range of threats that can cripple any business organization. Several years ago, most Internet threats were relatively benign examples of a young adolescent’s technical expertise but over time they have evolved into increasingly sophisticated domestic and foreign attacks that are designed to capture financial, personal, or strategic business information. Threats now come in the form of deliberately malicious acts, and exploitative opportunities for hackers and/or organized crime. The impact is serious, and the landscape of victims is getting broader every day. In response, no organization can afford to have its networks remain unprotected.

Advanced Attacks Require Federal Agencies to Reimangine IT Security

Published By: FireEye     Published Date: Feb 28, 2014
Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done. This paper outlines: The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks; What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats; A reimagined approach to IT security.

New Security Challenges for State and Local Governments

Published By: FireEye     Published Date: Mar 05, 2014
Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone. These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates. This white paper highlights: Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks; Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors; How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.
