The Security Operations Center (SOC) is where security data is transformed into an effective response to attacks. From investigating threats and scanning for vulnerabilities, to reverse-engineering malware and developing new security content to identify the latest threats, the SOC is a critical piece of the security puzzle. Learn how Alert Logic’s SOC operates to protect IT infrastructure from on-premises data centers to the cloud.

Securing web applications in the AWS cloud environment relies on the cloud service provider and the customer working together in a shared responsibility model. Effective security for web applications on AWS requires full visibility into the environment in which the apps live, while also proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application development and delivery. For some customers this may be a challenge due to limited personnel resources or expertise. This is where Alert Logic can help. We will automatically show you why, where, and how to respond to vulnerability findings and provide you with short- and long-term recommendations to stop active attacks. To help guide the way, following are key considerations for providing sound web application security running on the AWS cloud.

With large data breaches affecting retailers in 2013 and the PCI DSS 3.0 January 1, 2015 deadline approaching, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an important topic for many organizations in 2014. PCI DSS requirements can be challenging to meet from a time, resources and cost perspective. Requirements 6, 10 and 11 can be some of the most costly and resource intensive, requiring log management, vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection and a web application firewall. Alert Logic delivers solutions to meet these and other PCI DSS requirements. As the security industry’s only provider of on-demand log management, threat management, web application security, and IT compliance automation solutions, Alert Logic provides organizations with the easiest and most affordable way to secure their networks and comply with policies and regulations.

In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.

With breaches today often going undetected for months or years, many organizations must now accept the very real possibility that intruders have already compromised their systems, regardless of the organization’s security posture. Today, compromises are measured in minutes and the speed of response is measured in days. Enterprises the world over are realizing that to close the gap, they need to evolve their security operations from being a largely reactive unit (waiting for alerts that indicate a threat) to being proactively on the hunt for new attacks that have evaded detection. When an incident does occur, the speed of your response will dictate the extent to which you can minimize the impact. In the case of a malicious attack, it takes on average over 7 months to identify a breach, and nearly two and a half additional months to contain the incident. Every second counts, and while the clock is ticking, the cost of the breach is rapidly increasing as well. Breaches that take over 3

For cybersecurity professionals, 2016 presented a year of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that were unprecedented. Week after week, the public was inundated with news of hacks, attacks, and data leaks. It didn’t take long for everybody to realize the old axiom of cybersecurity still holds true - there are two types of companies: those who are hacked and know about it, and those who are hacked and soon will find out. As a key player in the war against DDoS attacks, Neustar has been on the front line, detecting, alerting, and mitigating strikes to keep companies and their customers safe.

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

Many security-minded organizations utilize code signing to provide an additional layer of security and authenticity for their software and files. Code signing is carried out using a type of digital certificate known as a code-signing certificate. The process of code signing validates the authenticity of legitimate software by confirming that an application is from the organization who signed it. While code-signing certificates can offer more security, they can also live an unintended secret life providing cover for attack groups, such as the Suckfly APT group. In late 2015, Symantec identified suspicious activity involving a hacking tool used in a malicious way against one of our customers. Normally, this is considered a low-level alert, however, the hacktool had an unusual characteristic not typically seen with this type of file; it was signed with a valid code-signing certificate. Download this whitepaper to find out more about how you can protect your business from such threats.

Things are not as they used to be in the enterprise. Today’s employees are mobile, they’re storing and accessing data in cloud apps, and are in disparate networks. While the present-day digital world has changed, the objective of data protection has not: you must still ensure the security of your critical data and intellectual property. However, the threat-centric security approach, with its static policies forces decisions about cyber activity with no insight into the broader context. The result is a disproportionate number of flagged activities, overwhelming security teams who have no way to understand the ones most worthy of investigation. Read Rethinking Data Security with a Risk-Adaptive Approach to learn how a human-centric, risk-adaptive approach can help your organization be more proactive in order to: • Automate policy enforcement to deter data loss events • Reduce the number of security alerts • Cut down on incident investigation time

The velocity of technology infrastructure change continues to accelerate, putting serious stress on Security Operations (SecOps). This has forced security folks to face the fact that operations has never really been their forte. That’s a bit harsh, but denial never helps address problems. The evidence is fairly strong that most organizations are pretty bad at security operations. How many high-profile breaches could have been avoided if one of many alerts was acted upon? How many attacks were made possible by not having properly patched servers or infrastructure? How many successful compromises resulted from human error?

This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure. And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring; advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics; alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities, as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting capabilities, to stop threats.
