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.

Managing web security in an increasingly challenging threat landscape. Cybercriminals have increasingly turned their attention to the web, which has become by farther predominant area of attack. Small wonder. Those who would do harm to our computer systems for profit or malice always manage to focus their efforts on our most vulnerable weak spots. Today, that is the web, for a wide number of reasons.

IT departments must contend with an array of devices, operating systems and cellular carriers as well as new security threats. Even if IT departments can get a handle on the complex mobility landscape, the technology is so fluid that the picture is constantly changing. That means the IT staff has to devote time to learning about, procuring, deploying and supporting an array of devices. Busy IT departments now have another option for addressing these challenges: a monthly subscription package that provides a customizable web-based portal to automate mobile device procurement, expense management and support.

In this white paper, we recap notable trends and events in information security from 2014 and look forward to what information security professionals should expect in 2015. The past year was a landmark one in the information security field, with massive data breaches capturing the public’s attention, powerful bugs causing headaches for IT teams and end users, DDoS attacks breaking records, and phishing remaining a general annoyance – or worse – for all Internet users. In this whitepaper, we discuss these trends as well as key areas of concern for 2015, including: - The impact of the Internet of Things - The growing importance of threat intelligence - The increasing influence of BRICS nations - The evolution of encryption standards - The changing role of the CISO

In this white paper, we examine notable trends and events in physical security from 2014 and assess what security professionals should expect in 2015. 2014 was truly an unpredictable year in the physical security and executive protection worlds, as large scale events targeted for disruption were executed relatively smoothly, while unforeseen developments in Ukraine and the Ebola outbreak caught many off guard. Looking ahead to 2015, we predict that local issues will continue to gain global importance, threat actors and activists will find new ways to utilize social media to spread their messages, and the lines between physical and digital threats will continue to converge. We also highlight ongoing developments in France, Mexico, Ukraine, and Germany.

In today’s security landscape, more vendors than ever are offering what is purported to be “threat intelligence.” Although security experts often have different definitions for this term, one thing many of them can agree on is that an intelligence-led approach to security – that is, putting threat intelligence to real-world use – is critical to protecting organizations. If the goal of an intelligence-led security strategy is to help organizations be more proactive in finding and preparing for threats to physical and digital assets, it’s crucial to define and understand exactly what threat intelligence means, and separate fact from fiction. In this whitepaper, we dispel some common myths about threat intelligence.

Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity. Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.

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

Information technology (IT) security is indispensable to an organization's ability to conduct business and achieve its objectives. Security requirements affect almost every business process and system, and successful security measures help protect a business’ brand value, stakeholder confidence, risk management strategies, and compliance status. Requirements vary among industries, geographies, and regions, but the need to protect privacy, retain important data, and facilitate e-discovery are common to all. This paper provides an overview of the regulatory landscape and identifies steps to take for defining a flexible compliance strategy.

While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.
