Over the past three years, ransomware has jumped into the spotlight of the cyber threat landscape. Kaspersky Lab reports that in 2015, its solutions detected ransomware on more than 50,000 computers in corporate networks—double the figure for 2014. Even at this rate of detection, Kaspersky admits that the real number of incidents is several times higher than what has been detected and reported.1 In just the first quarter of 2016, $209 million was paid out to cyber criminals using ransomware. The FBI estimates that losses to be incurred in 2016 due to ransomware will top $1 billion.2 Once again, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Interpol reports social engineering as the “broad term that refers to the scams used by criminals to trick, deceive and manipulate their victims into giving out confidential information and funds.” Scammers use sophisticated psychological manipulation techniques to build a level of trust with their victim, having them divulge confidential information or authenticate the fraudulent activity as genuine. They will typically claim to be from the bank or well known and trusted consumer brands.

There has been much speculation (not to mention exaggeration) over recent years about the fabled dark web. We’ve heard how this shady underworld is the refuge of the cybercriminal elite, and even nation-state threat actors. That this is their “Wolf’s Lair,” where they gather to plot the breaching of businesses, the downfall of governments, and the hacking of celebrities. As with much mainstream reporting of technology, and cyber threats in particular, there’s a grain of truth here. This less accessible and more volatile corner of the internet as we know it does offer those with less honourable motive a secret marketplace for their wares. The confusing terminology around what the dark web is or isn’t shouldn’t be a barrier to defenders realizing the anonymous communities, and how it can be used to produce valuable threat intelligence.

Financial services organizations have a unique relationship with technology: electronic data and transactions are the core of this industry. Financial services firms remain vigilant because they are constantly under attack. Hackers that gain access to customer accounts or financial data can profit either by using it themselves or by selling it to other criminal organizations. - There are many differences between perception and reality when it comes to security in this industry. For example, its emphasis on fraud prevention creates the perception that financial services is highly evolved in terms of its security readiness. However, this study finds that financial services firms’ security is on a par with the security of firms in other industries. - Regulations may lead to change and investments, but they also take time to take effect. Organizations should not wait for such requirements before they make improvements. Neither should they assume that compliance gives them full protection. Regulations cannot cover every aspect in such a fast-paced environment.
