DEI Communities, based in Omaha, Nebraska, manages apartment communities throughout the central United States. With a healthy portfolio of more than 9,400 units, the company has always placed a high priority on pre-lease applicant screening, which includes a basic criminal background check, eviction check and credit check on all applicants. A few years ago, however, it learned a valuable lesson – that not all screening providers are created equal. After switching to a new provider– First Advantage Resident Screening–the company discovered some impressive benefits, including better data, more streamlined processes, greater reporting flexibility, reduced bad debt and higher efficiency overall.

As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps.

Digital innovation has changed everything: the money is everywhere, so every business is a potential target for fraud. Banks and financial institutions used to be the primary targets of fraud. Why banks? To quote the notorious American bank robber Willie Sutton, “because that’s where the money is.” While banks remain firmly in the crosshairs of fraudsters, the avalanche of digital business innovation has changed everything. Since the money is everywhere, every business is a potential target for fraud. The same technology that helps us find airfare deals, sweet concert seats, or the best prices on the hottest Jordan shoes– that is, bots–can now be used by criminals. Fraudsters employ automated, faceless bots that scour business apps looking for any opportunity to profit. And since fraud targets business-process weaknesses and not just software vulnerabilities, you may not even know when it is happening.

Email. You use it constantly. And it’s the number-one application to keep your organization functioning, lines of communication flowing, and productivity seamless. Organizations need email to stay up-and running all the time. After all, it’s supposed to just work, right? This is where trouble often sets in. Cybercriminals use email constantly, too. It’s the number-one vector used to initiate attacks like malware delivery (think ransomware), impersonations and phishing attacks. In fact, almost 90% of organizations* have seen the volume of phishing attacks either rise or stay the same over the past 12 months. Internal threats have also been on the rise: Most organizations have encountered internal threats driven by careless employees (88%), compromised accounts (80%) or malicious insiders (70%) over the last year.

The rise of ransomware over the past few years is an ever-growing problem that has quickly become an extremely lucrative criminal enterprise. Targeted organizations often believe that paying the ransom is the most cost-effective way to get their data back — and, unfortunately, this may also be the reality. The problem is that every single business that pays to recover their files is directly funding the development of the next generation of ransomware. As a result, ransomware is evolving at an alarming rate with new and more sophisticated variants. This makes defending your organization's data against ransomware more critical than ever. But where do you start? Lots of questions come to mind. We've got the answers.

Recent research from Kaspersky has revealed a massive criminal campaign that was able to infiltrate more than 100 different banks and steal upwards of $1 billion from the affected institutions. Kaspersky dubbed this operation the Carbanak APT due to a connection between the malware used in the attacks and the now infamous Carberp banking botnet. You may recall the headlines in 2013 that revealed the Carberp source code had been leaked into the wild, making it accessible to virtually any would-be criminal group that may want it. The accessibility of Carberp source code could easily have provided a starting point for the Carbanak as they built their malware.

Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting individuals and businesses. Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually. According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands. No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.
