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.

This infographic gives a quick visual representation of some of the key findings of recent Webroot research on web security in the US and UK. The findings highlight the significant costs that web threats pose to businesses—such as increased help desk support—and the risks especially for companies with no web security installed. It also offers some quick recommendations for protecting against these threats. Among the major points: • Phishing is the most prevalent web-borne cyber attack • 8 in 10 companies experienced one or more types of web-borne attacks in 2012 71% of companies say web-borne threats increased help desk time

Webroot conducted research on web security in the US and the UK. As remote users expand the security perimeter, the majority of companies reported significant effects in the form of increased help desk time, reduced employee productivity and disruption of business activities. The impacts of web-borne attacks are also more severe for companies with employees who have remote access to the corporate network or other corporate online resource via their laptops, tablets or smartphones. • 90% of companies agree that managing the security of remote users is extremely challenging • Twice as many companies with remote users reported Web-borne attacks by criminals, which compromised the security of customer data • 50% of firms with remote users say web-borne attacks impacted company financials

This whitepaper discusses a major new threat vector — “phishing 2.0.” While many IT professionals have become less concerned with phishing as it seems these attacks only fool naive consumers, a new generation of sophisticated phishing attacks now target businesses. These phish evade traditional antivirus and antiphishing products. Using targeted information — often gathered from social media sites — they fool even security-savvy employees into divulging sensitive information or visiting websites that infect machines with dangerous malware. Learn more about: • Uncovering phishing emails and phishing websites in real time • Limiting the amount of personal information employees expose on social media sites • Leveraging the world’s largest cloud-based threat network

This FAQ tells you how to move beyond the old trade-off between anti-malware effectiveness and speed. It answers questions such as what is wrong with conventional approaches, which includes the inability of clients to perform signature matching operations on today’s more than 70 million malware variants. It also discusses how the cloud and behavioral detection overcome the limitations of signature-based approaches. Finally, it answers questions about how cloud solutions can offer specific benefits such as: • Improving speed by offloading pattern matching from endpoints • Eliminating large signature downloads • Stopping zero day attacks

The volume and sophistication of malware is skyrocketing, and traditional anti-virus approaches are struggling to keep up. It’s time to rethink how we protect our endpoints. Instead of trying to build a better anti-virus “mousetrap,” without any shift in the underlying management model for vetting change in endpoint environments, security professionals should investigate more innovative approaches to endpoint security that can automate trusted change policies. This paper discusses an innovative approach to application whitelisting – one that integrates application control, anti-virus, patch management and a trusted change management engine into one unified solution – to improve endpoint security and provide the necessary flexibility to optimize IT operations and user productivity.

Security practitioners and threat actors are constantly developing new techniques to gain advantages over the other. In recent years, security teams have stepped up their approaches to protecting their infrastructure by fortifying their network perimeter defenses, building up protections against advanced malware, upgrading vulnerable operating systems, automating the delivery of patches to stop exploits, and developing counter-measures to spot intruders. The threat actors looking to circumvent these measures are shifting their attention toward the next weakest link in the security chain – the user.

With the introduction of sophisticated threats such as advanced phishing and malware, authentication can become less effective. Authentication methods can be bypassed by fraudsters and traditional risk-based authentication solutions can cause many users to be unnecessarily challenged and disrupted, yet do not manage to reduce fraud. As fraud rises, there is a strong need for fraud tools that can detect account takeover and fraudulent transactions. IBM® Security Trusteer™ Pinpoint Criminal Detection software offers a next generation approach that helps address the challenges of traditional risk engines.
