The Rising Threat of Account Takeover

Published By: SpyCloud     Published Date: Mar 30, 2018
Because of widespread password reuse, Account Takeover (ATO) attacks have become an extremely lucrative business for cybercriminals. Organized crime rings are performing ATO attacks at a massive scale by leveraging botnet-infected armies to attempt credential-stuffing attacks against various web and mobile applications. Cyber criminals exploit compromised accounts for financial gain by pilfering financial or personally identifiable information (PII) directly or by selling access to these accounts on underground markets.

Isolation Best Practices for Financial Services Institutions

Published By: Menlo Security     Published Date: Jun 01, 2018
"Financial services institutions are high-value targets for cyberattacks because of the capital they control, the personal information on customers they maintain, and the fear an attack on a bank generates in the public. Phishing attacks on FSIs have risen steadily, especially employee credential theft - because once an employee’s credentials are stolen, cyberattackers can access customer information, employee data, even finances. While legacy security solutions claim to block up to 99.9 percent of cyberattacks, all it takes is one employee or contractor to open an email from an unknown source, download a file from a compromised website, or in any other way fall victim to a cyberattack. So, it’s time for a new approach: Isolation, also known as, remote browsing. Download this Financial Services Best Practices Guide to Isolation to learn how to best eliminate phishing attacks and web malware. "

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.

AWS Vulnerability And Threat Detection Checklist

Published By: Alert Logic     Published Date: May 23, 2019
Securing web applications in the AWS cloud environment relies on the cloud service provider and the customer working together in a shared responsibility model. Effective security for web applications on AWS requires full visibility into the environment in which the apps live, while also proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application development and delivery. For some customers this may be a challenge due to limited personnel resources or expertise. This is where Alert Logic can help. We will automatically show you why, where, and how to respond to vulnerability findings and provide you with short- and long-term recommendations to stop active attacks. To help guide the way, following are key considerations for providing sound web application security running on the AWS cloud.

Why Your Next Generation Firewall Protection Isn't Enough

Published By: Webroot Inc     Published Date: Jan 15, 2015
The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection. Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organization’s network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and land with the victim’s infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victim’s business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the

How to Build a DDoS Response Plan

Published By: Incapsula     Published Date: Nov 06, 2017
You’ve probably heard about distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, or maybe you’ve even been hit by one. If you’re like most organizations, you’ve already been DDoSed. Perhaps the attack was minor, a wakeup call, but then the attack subsided without causing damage and you just left DDoS protection on your “to-do list.” If you don’t have a DDoS attack plan, it’s probably time to bump it up to the top of your list. That’s because DDoS attacks are getting bigger, persistent, and more harmful. They inflict serious cost in terms of lost revenue, damaged systems and lost consumer trust. DDoS is no longer just a web server problem; infrastructure is now a target. The attacker’s ambition is clear: Take down your online existence and harm your organization.
