The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Compliance For Mobile Devices

Published By: MobileIron     Published Date: Aug 20, 2018
The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies. One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include: • Loss or theft of device • Unauthorized access to device • Mobile operating system vulnerabilities • Communication over untrusted networks • Malware or malicious Apps • Jailbreak or rooting activity • Data loss through user behaviors

Threat Hunting For Dummies: Carbon Black Special Edition

Published By: Carbon Black     Published Date: Aug 14, 2018
Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able to carry out their attack objectives.

Threat Hunting for Dummies

Published By: IBM     Published Date: May 04, 2018
A dversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular, are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to “go on the hunt.” Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data.

Assessing the Business Value of Endpoint Specialized Threat Analysis and Protection Solutions

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 19, 2016
Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s

SANS Report Breaches Happen: Be Prepared

Published By: Symantec     Published Date: Nov 21, 2014
Computer viruses are yesterday’s news; automated attacks that morph rapidly, concealing themselves through encryption and deceptive packaging, are the new hotness. This paper describes how to start with improved malware reporting and gateway monitoring and how to combine this output with security intelligence from both internal and external resources. Forward thinking organizations use these and other techniques promoted by frameworks such as the Critical Security Controls. The key is to—as quickly as possible—detect hostile activity, identify and locate affected systems and devices, and respond appropriately.
