Financial Services Attack Economy

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Sep 03, 2019
The attacks and tools being used against financial services organizations are part of a complex ecosystem. This may seem like an obvious statement at first glance. When you read most industry reports, they tend to focus on a single aspect of the whole ecosystem, as if it were unrelated to other types of attacks. To be honest, we’ve been just as guilty of having a myopic view of attack traffic as anyone else. We wanted to do something different for this report. Instead of looking at a single type of attack, we stepped back to look at attacks against banks, credit unions, trading companies, and other organizations that make up financial services as a whole. Most defenders only see a very small segment of the overall traffic, whether they’re the target or the vendor supplying defensive tools. The breadth of Akamai’s products and our visibility into a significant portion of Internet traffic allows us to research multiple stages of the attack economy.

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 government’s National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology (NSTCC), “AI has important applications in cybersecurity, and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures.” 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 don’t understand the basics of this im

HELPING MANAGERS TAKE ACTION ON SURVEY RESULTS

Published By: Engage2Excel     Published Date: Apr 29, 2019

Starting with the most defensive reason, the four reasons are as follows: 1. To identify warning signs of trouble within the organization 2. To evaluate the effectiveness of specific programs, policies and initiatives 3. To gauge the organization's status or strength as an employer of choice among its workforce 4. To predict and drive organizational outcomes, including customer satisfaction and business performance

The Evolving Face of Cyber Threats

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jul 26, 2017
The headlines are ablaze with the latest stories of cyberattacks and data breaches. New malware and viruses are revealed nearly every day. The modern cyberthreat evolves on a daily basis, always seeming to stay one step ahead of our most capable defenses. Every time there is a cyberattack, government agencies gather massive amounts of data. To keep pace with the continuously evolving landscape of cyberthreats, agencies are increasingly turning toward applying advanced data analytics to look at attack data and try to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of the attacks. Applying modern data analytics can help derive some defensive value from the data gathered in the aftermath of an attack, and ideally avert or mitigate the damage from any future attacks.
