With the constant drumbeat of news reports about security breaches, cyber security is hard to ignore. Organizations understand that they need comprehensive security solutions, yet significant gaps remain. Malicious actors have evolved their methods to leverage the vulnerabilities of the Domain Name System (DNS), and attacks that utilize this vector are increasing in number.

Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.

Privileged credentials have served as a major attack vector in the successful execution of many breaches. Protecting privileged access is an imperative to successfully defend an organization from a breach and is a core requirement of multiple compliance regimes. CA Privileged Access Management helps drive IT security and compliance risk reduction and improves operational efficiency by enabling privileged access defense in depth—providing broad and consistent protection of sensitive administrative credentials, management of privileged identity access and control of administrator activity.

Within any organization, the most dangerous users are those with privileged access to the company’s most valuable and sensitive data assets. This includes systems administrators, business managers, partners, suppliers, and service providers, and also takes into account the automated interactions between business machines, systems, and applications. Privileged access has always been a high-risk issue, but for too long, organizations have not understood or have chosen to ignore the risks, preferring instead to rely on the integrity of the individuals and systems involved. A number of high-profile security breaches over the last two years have highlighted the damage that a rogue systems administrator or stolen privileged credentials can cause. Today, fewer than half of all business organizations have deployed the type of privileged identity management (PIM) solution that could help improve the situation. This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) provides an in-depth view of the leading PIM solution

A significant paradigm shift occurred in the last few years. Much like other technological shifts of the last decade — when cloud computing changed the way we do business, agile changed the way we develop software and Amazon changed the way we shop — Zero Trust presents us with a new paradigm in how we secure our organizations, our data and our employees. While difficult to identify the precise tipping point, one thing is certain: what were once extraordinarily high-profile, damaging breaches are no longer extraordinary. In just the last 18 months, Yahoo, Accenture, HBO, Verizon, Uber, Equifax, Deloitte, the U.S. SEC, the RNC, the DNC, the OPM, HP, Oracle and a profusion of attacks aimed at the SMB market have all proven that every organization — public or private — is susceptible. The epiphany behind the paradigm shift is clear: Widely-accepted security approaches based on bolstering a trusted network do not work. And they never will. Especially when businesses are dealing with skill

When one of our client's most strategic web applications was hacked, it was something of a wake-up call. Application security is surprisingly often an afterthought, and serious investment is only sometimes made when security breaches are discovered. Effectively, companies try to close the stable door after the horse has bolted. However, preventive security maintenance of apps is far more cost-effective and less damaging than reactive security. Our client therefore asked us to put in place an app security testing program early in the development life cycle to reduce the chances of similar breaches in the future.

One of the biggest challenges to effectively stopping breaches lies in sifting through vast amounts of data to find the proverbial “needle in the haystack” – the subtle clues that indicate an attack is imminent or underway. As modern computer systems generate billions of events daily, the amount of data to analyze can reach petabytes. Compounding the problem, the data is often unstructured, discrete and disconnected. As a result, organizations struggle to determine how individual events may be connected to signal an impending attack. In this context, detecting attacks is often difficult, and sometimes impossible. This white paper describes how CrowdStrike solved this challenge by building its own graph data model – the CrowdStrike Threat Graph? – to collect and analyze extremely large volumes of security-related data, and ultimately, to stop breaches. This revolutionary approach applies massive graph-based technologies, similar to the ones developed by Facebook and Google, to detect k

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.

It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase. Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se

As business models have become increasingly digital, high-profile, reputation-damaging security breaches are grabbing more news media headlines. Leading companies have ramped up their investments in cybersecurity, yet that spending is often not well aligned with actual threats. Studies have shown that server-focused solutions such as network anti-virus, malware detection and website firewalls attract the biggest investments, ignoring the fact that misuse of privileged credentials is by far the most common cause of breaches. The reasons for this disconnect are not well understood, in part because it sits at the intersection of the people and technology domains. This survey, conducted by WSJ Custom Studios with sponsorship from Centrify, seeks insights into senior-level thinking on this issue, including current cybersecurity priorities and the perceived degree of alignment between threats and solutions.

On the 13th February 2017, the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act was passed in the Australian Parliament, introducing a mandatory notification regime. This bill commences on the 23rd February 2018 and will require organisations to notify data subjects and regulators in the event of an “eligible” data breach. An “eligible data breach” will occur where: ? There is unauthorised access to, or unauthorised disclosure of, the information; and ? A reasonable person would conclude that the access or disclosure would be likely to result in serious harm to any of the individuals to whom the information relates The amended legislation provides greater clarity to Australian citizens about the privacy of their personal information and will affect Australian companies as well as international organisations with Australian operations. It also means that businesses must carefully think about the practical issues related to data breach responses and the disruptive consequences of any un

A New Security Model Worth Understanding—and Emulating Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network. Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change. The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.

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

Predictive analytics provide the foresight to understand cybersecurity risk exposure. Cybersecurity strategies often consist of “whack-a-mole” exercises focused on the perpetual detection and mitigation of vulnerabilities. As a result, organizations must re-think the ever-escalating costs associated with vulnerability management. After all, the daily flow of cybersecurity incidents and publicized data breaches, across all industries, calls into question the feasibility of achieving and maintaining a fully effective defense. The time is right to review the risk management and risk quantifcation methods applied in other disciplines to determine their applicability to cybersecurity. Security scoring is a hot topic, and rightfully so. When evaluating ways to integrate these scores into your cybersecurity strategy, be sure to look for an empirical approach to model development. The FICO Enterprise Security Score is the most accurate, predictive security score on the market.
