With companies embracing mobility to maintain competitive advantage in the digital era, information security threats have increased exponentially. Userfriendly technologies such as mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud storage are often hacker-friendly too, creating opportunities for cybercriminals to covertly infiltrate company data. This opens the door to data loss, reputational damage, loss of proprietary information – not to mention the associated regulatory penalties and potential legal fees. IT bears the brunt of responsibility for information security, yet according to Forrester, internal incidents top the list of security breach causes in 2014.

2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.

Attacks on financial services institutions are growing in both quantity and sophistication. Our new State of the Internet/Security report studies criminal behavior across this advanced and expansive financial services attack economy: from a popular authentication mechanism for staging credential stuffing attacks to the use of stolen identities to cash out ill-gotten gains. The report identifies leading DDoS and application-layer attack vectors, lucrative phishing variants, and how criminals stage decoy attacks to distract from their real targets. Attacks that prove successful in financial services often move on to other industries. Download the report, and see what petabytes of data tell us.

The financial services industry is one of the largest and most sought-after targets for attackers. This particular industry revolves around trust and security, and because of this, these elements are quite often the key focal point for criminals. Successful attacks can quickly translate into the dissemination of massive amounts of personal information and monetary gains by the attacker. Criminals targeting the financial services industry do so by leveraging various attack surfaces, such as people, processes, applications, or systems. Regardless of where the financial institutions are located in the world, staying aware of the forefront of new attack trends is imperative for keeping their systems and customers safe. Understanding the ecosystem of attacks, how different layers interact, and the booming economy spawned by it gives financial services organizations the edge they need.

Cyber-crime is forecast to cost the global economy $6 trillion by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2016. Described by some as the “greatest threat to every company in the world”, public concern for the safety of data is growing – not just in how criminals might use stolen data to commit fraud, but also in how personal data is used by the organizations we engage with.

D’ici à 2021, le coût de la cybercriminalité pour l’économie mondiale devrait atteindre les 6 000 milliards de dollars, soit deux fois plus que les 3 000 milliards de dollars de 2016. En parallèle à ce que certains qualifient de « pire menace pour les entreprises du monde entier », les gens s'inquiètent de plus en plus de la sécurité de leurs données – non seulement des capacités des cybercriminels à utiliser des données volées pour usurper leur identité, mais aussi de l’utilisation de leurs données personnelles par les entreprises avec lesquelles ils interagissent.

Si prevede che la criminalità informatica possa costare all’economia globale fino a 6 trilioni di dollari nel 2021, rispetto ai 3 trilioni di dollari del 2016. Considerata da alcuni "la più grande minaccia per ogni azienda mondiale", ha alimentato il dibattito pubblico sulla sicurezza dei dati. Non solo a proposito del possibile sfruttamento criminale dei dati personali rubati ma anche del loro trattamento da parte delle aziende con cui abbiamo relazioni.

As cybercriminals look for new ways to break through defenses, it’s vital that organizations have access to real-time operational intelligence across their applications, services, and security infrastructure. As Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) migrated applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS), it needed to expand security capacity for edge protection of its AWS VPCs. REI chose Splunk for security monitoring, historical analysis, and data visualization in real time, to help it investigate events and mitigate operational risks.

HOW TO USE THIS BUYER’S GUIDE Today, privileges are built into operating systems, file systems, applications, databases, hypervisors, cloud management platforms, DevOps tools, robotic automation processes, and more. Cybercriminals covet privileges/privileged access because it can expedite access to an organization’s most sensitive targets. With privileged credentials and access in their clutches, a cyberattacker or piece of malware essentially becomes an “insider”.

With cybercriminals threatening nations globally, cybersecurity is taking a front seat in many regions. Most notably, the European Union (EU) has adopted regulations to combat the threats. Against the backdrop of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, the EU has set forth rules and procedures for enhanced cybersecurity, along with penalties for noncompliance, in the form of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new body of mandated policies and procedures aims to protect EU member personal information collected and/or stored by organizations. Read more in the GDPR business brief.

There will be a ransomware attack on businesses every 14 seconds by the end of 2019 . Every 40 seconds, one of those attacks will prove successful , with devastating effects ranging from permanent loss of irreplaceable data to life-threatening interruptions to patient care. In years past, expert malware authors packaged up their know-how into costly exploit kits sold on the underground market. Cyber criminals had to recover high upfront costs before launching a campaign and realizing a profit. Today, ransomware-as a-service groups like Satan make it easier than ever before for would-be cyber criminals with minimal technical skills to launch attacks, offering free ransomware toolkits and hands-on help to manage campaigns and extort payments. Read our white paper to learn how CylancePROTECT® prevents Petya, Goldeneye, WannaCry, Satan, and many more from executing, with machine learning models dating back to September 2015, long before the ransomware first appeared in the wild.

When Daniel Shuler joined Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) as CISO in 2016, he knew the hospital would be a tempting target for cyber criminals due to the massive troves of sensitive data it collects to diagnose and treat patients. Over the next three years, Shuler spearheaded a complete overhaul of PCH’s security fabric. First, he decommissioned the legacy AV and engaged BlackBerry Cylance’s ThreatZERO™ consultants to deploy CylancePROTECT® on over 4,000 endpoints. Soon after, CylancePROTECT stopped a ransomware attack that could have disrupted patient care by preventing access to electronic medical record data. Next, he engaged a BlackBerry Cylance Red Team to perform annual penetration testing assignments. Says Shuler, “Our relationship is unique in my experience. BlackBerry Cylance has proven repeatedly that they have our best interests at heart and that they share our commitment to provide the best care possible for children and their families.” Read the case study for the full s

Increasingly complex networks, require more than a one-size-fitsall approach to ensuring adequate performance and data integrity. In addition to the garden-variety performance issues such as slow applications, increased bandwidth requirements, and lack of visibility into cloud resources, there is also the strong likelihood of a malicious attack. While many security solutions like firewalls and intrusion detection systems (IDS) work to prevent security incidents, none are 100 percent effective. However, there are proactive measures that any IT team can implement now that can help ensure that a successful breach is found quickly, effectively remediated, and that evidential data is available in the event of civil and/or criminal proceedings.
