A Guide to Integrated Security

Published By: Ahead     Published Date: Jun 05, 2019
Digital Business Continues to Move the Cyber Goal Posts Fortune magazine estimates that by the year 2020, US companies will spend $101 billion per year on cyber security, up 38% from 2016. With all of the money being invested in cyber security, why do the pace and complexity of new security threats continue to rise year after year? A big reason is that today’s digital business involves a more mobile workforce with expectations of immediate and on demand access to data fronted by intuitive and engaging user experiences, and often underpinned by public cloud infrastructure for increased agility and time to market.

How Securing Recursive DNS Proactively Protects Your Network

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Jun 14, 2018
"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses. But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio Read 5 Reasons Enterprises Need a New Access Model to learn about the fundamental changes enterprises need to make when providing access to their private applications.

Enterprise Organizations Need to Prepare for Cyber-attack ‘Hunting’

Published By: ArborNetworks     Published Date: Feb 12, 2016
Ask any cybersecurity professional and she’ll tell you that her job is getting increasingly difficult. Why? Most will point to a combination of the dangerous threat landscape, IT complexity, and their overwhelming workload. These issues are driving a major transition in enterprise security. Large organizations must move beyond a threat prevention mentality to become proactive cyber-¬-attack “hunters” that constantly monitor their networks for signs of trouble. This shift to proactive hunting will require new technologies that collect, process, and analyze massive amounts of security data, offer intelligent security analytics for real-¬-time incident detection, integrate threat intelligence to align suspicious internal activities with external threats, and provide analysts with the right data analytics features to query and manipulate data for historical investigations.

Privileged Access Threat Report 2018

Published By: BeyondTrust     Published Date: Apr 04, 2019
The WannaCry ransomware attack in May 2017 crippled the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and disrupted a range of organizations across 150 countries. Despite being a relatively unsophisticated attack, WannaCry was able to make such a global impact due to preventable vulnerabilities that had largely gone unaddressed. There were many more attacks in 2017, including high-profile breaches at Uber and Equifax, where heeding cyber-security recommendations may have reduced the impact and fallout. The scale and sophistication of cyber-attacks is not slowing down – ranging from phishing scams to cryptocurrency-based cyber-attacks, to statesponsored attacks on industrial control systems. These attacks present an ever growing challenge and serve as a reminder that organizations cannot afford to be complacent in the face of cyber threats. We’re living in a time when cyberattacks are a matter of when, not if, and security professionals must focus on mitigating their extent and damage. Our 2018 re

Privileged Access Threat Report 2019

Published By: BeyondTrust     Published Date: Jun 05, 2019
The world is an uncertain place. Particularly for cyber security professionals, many of whom have learned the hard way that they can’t rest on their laurels. New technologies and fresh threats are constantly emerging, and these threats come from both outside and within organizations. In our 2019 privileged access threat research, we discovered that almost two thirds of respondents (64%) think it is likely they’ve suffered a breach due to employee access, while 58% say the same about vendors. Meanwhile, the devices intended to make life easier can expose businesses further. Although hostile, external attacks are considered a significant or moderate concern by 61% of businesses, the threat of misused or abused insider access follows very closely behind at 58%. At the same time, 57% of security decision makers perceive at least a moderate risk from Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and the Internet of Things (IoT) at 57%.

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 customers’ 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.

Risk & Response: Defending Financial Institutions with Cb Response

Published By: Carbon Black     Published Date: Apr 10, 2018
For decades, the financial services industry has endured constant change and uncertainty, from the depths of a financial crisis to widespread regulation overhauls. With the advent of more advanced cybersecurity threats, the industry has responded with rapid digital transformation to remain competitive while also pushing the envelope. Today, managing and mitigating cyber-related risks not only draws government scrutiny, but increased consumer scrutiny as well, with longstanding brand reputations anchored to institutions’ ability to protect its most sensitive data. In a recent survey of Americans, financial information was considered by consumers to be their most valuable personal information, worth even more than personal or family photos and videos. For consumers, failing to protect their data is a grave violation of trust, to the point where 72% would consider leaving their current financial institution if their sensitive information was taken hostage by ransomware.1 Not only does the

CEO Disconnect is Weakening Cybersecurity

Published By: Centrify Corporation     Published Date: Apr 13, 2018
As business models have become increasingly digital, high-profile, reputation-damaging security breaches are grabbing more news media headlines. Leading companies have ramped up their investments in cybersecurity, yet that spending is often not well aligned with actual threats. Studies have shown that server-focused solutions such as network anti-virus, malware detection and website firewalls attract the biggest investments, ignoring the fact that misuse of privileged credentials is by far the most common cause of breaches. The reasons for this disconnect are not well understood, in part because it sits at the intersection of the people and technology domains. This survey, conducted by WSJ Custom Studios with sponsorship from Centrify, seeks insights into senior-level thinking on this issue, including current cybersecurity priorities and the perceived degree of alignment between threats and solutions.

Threat Landscape - How to predict, spot and mitigate threats

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: Sep 02, 2019
"We live and surf in a cyber world where attacks like APT, DDOS, Trojans and Ransomware are common and easy to execute. Domain names are an integral part of any business today and apparently an integral part of an attacker's plan too. Domain names are carriers of malwares, they act as Command and Control servers and malware's ex-filtrate data too. In today's threat landscape - predicting threats, spotting threats and mitigating them is super crucial.. This is called Visibility and Analytics. Watch this on demand session with our Cisco cloud security experts Shyam Ramaswamy and Fernando Ferrari as they talk about how Cisco Umbrella and The Umbrella Research team detect anomalies, block threats and identify compromised hosts. The experts also discuss how effectively Cisco spot, react, filter out IOC, block the network communications of a malware; identify and stop a phishing campaign (unknown ones too). "
