Four Steps to Effectively Protecting Your Organization from Phishing Attacks

Published By: Cyveillance     Published Date: Jun 20, 2014
Phishing is defined by the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) as a broadly launched social engineering attack in which an electronic identity is misrepresented in an attempt to trick individuals into revealing personal credentials that can be used fraudulently against them. In short, it’s online fraud to the highest degree. Although it’s been around for years, phishing is still one of the most common and effective online scams. The schemes are varied, typically involving some combination of spoofed email (spam), malicious software (malware), and fake websites to harvest personal information from unwitting consumers. The explosive rise of mobile devices, mobile applications, and social media networks has given phishers new vectors to exploit, along with access to volumes of personal data that can be used in more targeted attacks or spear phishing. The fact that phishing attacks are still so common highlights their efficacy and reinforces the need to implement comprehensive phishing and response plans to protect organizations. An effective phishing protection plan should focus on four primary areas: Prevention, Detection, Response, and Recovery. High-level recommendations for each of the four areas are outlined in this whitepaper.

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.

Five Reasons Your Small or Midsize Business is a Prime Target for Cybercriminals

Published By: FireEye     Published Date: Mar 05, 2014
Cyber attacks are growing more sophisticated and, more often than not, target small and midsize businesses (SMBs). One unlucky click - a malicious email attachment, a link to a legitimate but compromised website - could result in a costly data breach that drains your bank account and customer trust. This paper explains targeted attacks and examines reasons cyber attackers are aiming at small and midsize businesses, including: Value of your data; Low risk and high returns for criminals; Why SMBs are easier targets.

The Top 10 Mistakes Incident Responders Make Combatting Advanced Threats

Published By: FireEye     Published Date: Mar 05, 2014
Whether they work for an up-and-coming startup or an industry giant, security response teams are under siege as never before. Today's cyber attacks are sophisticated, relentless, and devastating, costing U.S. businesses $8.9 million a year each on average. Attacking in multiple stages across multiple vectors, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and other sophisticated attacks easily evade signature-based detection and other traditional defenses. Thiswhite paper describes: The 10 most common mistakes, strategic and technical, that incident response teams make; The effect of these mistakes and how to avoid them with a well-defined incident response plan.

How Data Centers are Becoming Unwitting Accomplices in Advanced Cyber Attacks

Published By: FireEye     Published Date: Mar 05, 2014
If information is the lifeblood of today's digital economy, data centers are the heart. These mini-metropolises of silicon, metal, and cable are as essential to modern business as steel, motors, and coal were to the last great industrial revolution. In addition to their vital role in most business processes, data centers are the building blocks of emerging trends such as Big Data, global collaboration, and even bring-your-own-device (BYOD). The white paper describes: The widening gap between the offensive capabilities of today's cyber attackers and the weak traditional defenses deployed in most data centers; How organizations can better protect data centers.

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.
