Learn how cyber threat intelligence (CTI) helps you bolster defenses, hunt down adversaries, investigate incidents and make better security decisions. While once considered a “nice to have”, Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is now widely considered an essential weapon against breaches. A recent study by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) found that 72 percent of organizations plan to increase CTI spending — further validation of its important role in your security strategy. Yet, because threat intelligence comes in many shapes and forms, it is often misunderstood. This white paper, “Threat Intelligence: Cybersecurity’s Best Kept Secret,” offers in-depth coverage of CTI, including the different categories of threat intelligence and use cases that demonstrate CTI’s effectiveness in thwarting today’s most dangerous and sophisticated attackers. You’ll also learn how the right CTI can empower better security and executive decisions, while dramatically improving your organization's security post

How adopting a framework can optimize cybersecurity Today’s threat landscape has created new challenges for security analysts and incident responders, as the number of alerts and their complexity have increased significantly. Organizations with small IT teams are overwhelmed, often lacking the time or resources to investigate every alert. Failing to do so means a high-risk threat might go unnoticed. This can result in a devastating breach, damaging an organization's finances and reputation. This white paper discusses how CrowdStrike is solving these challenges, by implementing the MITRE ATT&CK™ Framework across multiple CrowdStrike processes and product features to help improve analyst’s productivity and prevent breaches. This provides many benefits, including time savings; adding advanced context to security alerts and information; and enabling a common, shared language. However, it also provides some hidden advantages, especially concerning cybersecurity. Read this whitepaper to lear

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.

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.

In the running battle with cyberthreats, your first line of defense is your IT staff: the system and network administrators, SOC and NOC operators, incident response and forensics analysts, and application development and QA teams. Are these IT professionals ready to take on an ever-growing army of innovative, persistent cybercriminals and hackers? Probably not, if you expect them to acquire the knowledge and skills they need through self-directed study and on-the-job training. There is too much to learn, and few members of the IT staff have the time to research every new threat. And you can’t afford to suffer through APTs, breaches and data leakages just to provide “teachable moments” for IT personnel. There is another solution. Security simulation immerses IT professionals in a realistic online environment and challenges them to fill the roles of cyberattackers and cyberdefenders. It borrows from education theory and online gaming to present knowledge in ways that motivate learning a

The Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding in a dramatic way, bringing to question the issue of availability versus security, as security measures are having a difficult time keeping pace with the development of IoT devices. The introduction of more efficient semiconductors, coupled with revolutionary technology that allows semiconductors to store as well as process complex instructions, means that the IoT may be a more attractive target for hackers. IoT devices from healthcare and industrial systems (i.e., SCADA) could be the most at risk for significant service interruptions and may have secondary and/or tertiary effects on other industries.

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

Predictive analytics provide the foresight to understand cybersecurity risk exposure. Cybersecurity strategies often consist of “whack-a-mole” exercises focused on the perpetual detection and mitigation of vulnerabilities. As a result, organizations must re-think the ever-escalating costs associated with vulnerability management. After all, the daily flow of cybersecurity incidents and publicized data breaches, across all industries, calls into question the feasibility of achieving and maintaining a fully effective defense. The time is right to review the risk management and risk quantifcation methods applied in other disciplines to determine their applicability to cybersecurity. Security scoring is a hot topic, and rightfully so. When evaluating ways to integrate these scores into your cybersecurity strategy, be sure to look for an empirical approach to model development. The FICO Enterprise Security Score is the most accurate, predictive security score on the market.

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.

Cyber security is today an unavoidable concern for law firms and the legal sector at large, which oversees disproportionately large volumes of sensitive data and which is therefore an attractive target for sophisticated threat actors. From confidential information about mergers and acquisitions to disclosures made under attorney-client privilege, today’s law firms are inundated with data that would be disastrous if leaked, both for the results of individual cases and for these firm’s long-term reputations. Indeed, this reputational damage diminishes the very trust upon which the legal profession is predicated, jeopardizing client relationships and hindering customer acquisition. Legal organizations lose 5% of their clients following a data breach, while significant or high-profile breaches can even prompt a firm’s eventual collapse, as was the case for Mossack Fonseca in the infamous Panama Papers breach. In today’s increasingly digital business world, even the most private legal docum
