Cybercriminals have been upping their game this year; the use of file-less attacks with macros and PowerShell scripts to evade preventive defenses and sandboxes mean that they are getting better than ever at using phishing, social engineering and drive-by techniques to gain initial footholds in private domains – and once they arrive, they are often avoiding detection for extended periods of time. Between April and July 2018, Fidelis interviewed over 580 security professionals from around the globe to understand how they are shifting their detection strategies and how confident organizations are in their ability to not only prevent targeted attacks – but root out threats that have by-passed traditional preventive defenses.

This year’s Cyber Intrusion Services Casebook focuses on in-depth digital forensics, incident response (IR) and remediation services performed on behalf of actual CrowdStrike clients. Real-life examples drawn from notable CrowdStrike Services IR engagements in 2016 — including the now-infamous hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) —are covered with an emphasis on best practices organizations can follow to identify and eject attackers before a devastating breach occurs. Download this report to learn: • How CrowdStrike’s Falcon OverWatch and professional services teams discovered and attributed the DNC intrusion to nation-state threat actors FANCY BEAR and COZY BEAR • The gaps in security processes and planning that your organization can address now to stop the next breach • The specific tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) a range of nation-state and eCrime adversaries used to penetrate their victims’ defenses, and how they attempted to cover their tracks

Why Cisco Umbrella is the simplest decision you can make to improve your company’s security. You have to make some serious security decisions when you’re an IT leader. That’s because both the volume and sophistication of attacks are intensifying relentlessly — and it’s clear that conventional defenses alone are no longer adequate. More efective blocking of attackers is particularly important because under-the-radar attacks are wreaking havoc on enterprises that rely on antivirus products, frewalls, and sandboxing alone. A mere 30 minutes from now, any business can be more secure than it was before. That’s the simple reality of DNS-layer security.

With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more. With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information. Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.

By 2021, cyber attacks are expected to cause $6 trillion in damages worldwide. To combat, spending is predicted to hit $1 trillion between 2017 and 2021. Attackers benefit from an infinite amount of time and tactics at their disposal, as they work to get around the typical static network and endpoint defenses organizations put in place. Deception can complement endpoint and network defenses, adding dynamic security mechanisms that can be customized for every environment to take the attacker’s advantage away. While endpoint and network security protects you from being compromised, deception mitigates the effects of a compromise by detecting it early and identifying the attacker intent which helps coordinate a faster and better response. Read this white paper to find out more.

Traditional endpoint security has failed to keep up with today’s threats and is exposing organizations to unacceptable levels of risk. It’s time for smarter, next-generation malware prevention to replace or supplement traditional defenses. New approaches to malware can wrest back control and give security administrators greater visibility and control over their endpoints at a lower cost than traditional solutions. This paper looks at the endpoint threats organizations are facing, the means to combat those threats, and why next-generation, cloud-driven protection offers the smartest way to prevent endpoint malware infections.

Odds are fairly high that there is sensitive data on your corporate network that is overexposed and itching to escape. But will it ?Forrester thinks so – in a recent survey, 22% of security decision makers reported a data breach in the past twelve months, and at an average cost of $7.2 million per breach, it’s no shock that organizations are constantly working to strengthen their defenses.

Today’s threat landscape is nothing like that of just 10 years ago. Simple attacks that caused containable damage have given way to modern cybercrime operations that are sophisticated, well-funded, and capable of causing major disruptions to organizations and the national infrastructure. Not only are these advanced attacks difficult to detect, but they also remain in networks for long periods of time and amass network resources to launch attacks elsewhere. Traditional defenses that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection are no longer adequate. It’s time for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum—before, during, and after an attack.

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

Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.
