DDoS Is the New Spam: 3 Strategies To Turn Catastrophe Into Annoyance

Published By: F5 Networks Inc     Published Date: Aug 16, 2018
As signaling and scrubbing technology evolve (and as your solutions become more and more adaptable), DDoS attacks will become less effective and less attractive to would-be adversaries. The time will soon come when a 1 Tb attack from an IoT botnet will seem like a mere annoyance, rather than a catastrophic event—if you even notice it at all. So how do you get there faster? Plan ahead by designing a defense in-depth DDoS strategy and partner with a trusted security provider to handle the large attacks. Upfront preparation will pay off when the threat of DDoS attacks no longer keeps you up at night.

Advanced Endpoint Security for Dummies

Published By: Symantec     Published Date: Jun 13, 2018
Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls. In the wake of this disruption, vendors offered myriad point products that solve only a portion of the security problem. These products usually require costly custom integrations and high management overhead to boot. Making matters worse, traditional security approaches can’t address an evolving threat landscape that includes ransomware, stealthy attacks that dwell in a customer’s environment for months, and threats targeting iOS and Android devices. In fact, the mobile workforce is more vulnerable than ever before.

State of The Internet/Security

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: May 07, 2018
2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.

Protect Your Data eBook

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: Apr 10, 2018
A New Security Model Worth Understanding—and Emulating Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network. Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change. The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.

Deep Packet Inspection for Threat Analysis Advisory

Published By: Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity     Published Date: Nov 30, 2017
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.

Advanced Persistent Threats: Detection, Protection and Prevention

Published By: Sophos     Published Date: Mar 30, 2017
Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years—social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones. Such attacks are neither advanced nor particularly sophisticated when broken down into their individual components and often rely on the weakest link in any organization—the user. However, the way in which hackers use combinations of techniques and the persistent behavior of the attackers is something that does set APTs apart from other attempts to compromise security. This paper is designed to give you an overview of the common characteristics of APTs, how they typically work, and what kind of protection is available to help reduce the risk of an attack.

Info-Tech Research Group 2015 SIEM Vendor Landscape Report

Published By: LogRhythm     Published Date: Aug 08, 2016
Security threats continue to be more sophisticated and advanced with each day, with the majority often going completely undetected. • Organizations are usually scrambling to keep up and implement new security controls to protect themselves, which adds a new layer of complexity. • With the rise of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and insider attacks, it becomes extremely difficult for security staff to detect all the risks. • Many IT and IT Security staff are already stretched thin by keeping track of many different security technologies that already exist.

The Carbanak Advanced Persistent Threat - Redefining banking malware

Published By: Vectra Networks     Published Date: Aug 03, 2015
Recent research from Kaspersky has revealed a massive criminal campaign that was able to infiltrate more than 100 different banks and steal upwards of $1 billion from the affected institutions. Kaspersky dubbed this operation the Carbanak APT due to a connection between the malware used in the attacks and the now infamous Carberp banking botnet. You may recall the headlines in 2013 that revealed the Carberp source code had been leaked into the wild, making it accessible to virtually any would-be criminal group that may want it. The accessibility of Carberp source code could easily have provided a starting point for the Carbanak as they built their malware.

Winning the War on Cybercrime: A New Approach to Fraud Prevention

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 09, 2015
This American Banker webcast, sponsored by IBM, provides new insight into cybercrime and fraud prevention. Financial institutions have invested heavily in fraud prevention technologies and programs. However, sophisticated organized crime syndicates continue to successfully attack financial institutions and their customers. These criminals adapt quickly by using advanced technology and with ever changing attack vectors to exploit information security and fraud protection gaps across payment types, banking channels, and organizational boundaries. Traditional fraud prevention technologies are simply not capable of detecting and preventing account takeover and advanced malware attacks. A new approach to counter fraud is needed.
