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.

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?

Three common types of software make you more vulnerable than you realize. While complete and thorough vulnerability management is next to impossible, a few simple steps go a long way toward reducing risk. Download this ebook to discover what steps to take to begin evolving away from patch management toward software and vulnerability management. The hidden threat in securing your infrastructure from vulnerabilities lies with IT’s difficulty in managing third-party software. 2017 was billed as the worst on record for cybersecurity. No doubt, the continued rise of modern threat vectors has IT on high alert. In essence, IT professionals view their role as responsible for keeping the door shut. However, even with IT administrators keenly aware that most exploits can be averted simply by keeping the environment current, the task is no small feat and often isn’t done as well as it needs to be.

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

As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 42.3% of respondents in ASEAN countries saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 7% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day. The Solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive. Download the Report to find out what else Ovum has discovered about security practices in ASEAN.

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.

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

Which questions have you overlooked and why do the answers matter? According to Gartner, “OT SRM (security and risk management) leaders must ask the right questions during the technology procurement process to achieve long-term success in their security investments.” Further, Gartner states, “Translating IT security practices and copying IT security technology will not result in a secure operational technology (OT) environment.” By reading “7 Questions SRM Leaders Aren't Asking OT Security Providers,” you’ll learn which questions to ask, why they matter, and be armed with follow-up guidance to make smarter decisions. Questions covered include: - Does the Solution Provide Asset Discovery to Enable Operational Continuity and System Integrity? - Does the Solution Detect and Alert on Known Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures? - Does Your Solution Provide IT Support in Addition to OT? - Does Your Solution Support Secure IT/OT Alignment?

These emerging technologies and solutions certainly are not unique to financial services. But Stewart, a business director of security intelligence solutions within the SAS Security Intelligence Practice, sees particular interest and application in AML circles. "There remain a good number of manual processes within financial crimes departments in financial institutions, and AI can help automate some of those rote tasks such as document review or alert triage," he says. "Due to investments in technology, there is a lower barrier of entry for midsized institutions. "And finally, there's this anxiety over the unknown - those risks they are not able to detect, that may be hidden using traditional techniques - so they're hoping that more advanced, unsupervised learning techniques can be used to identify those edge cases or behaviors that are out of norm." In an interview about analytics and the AML paradigm shift, Stewart discusses: • The new industry intrigue with artificial intelligence a
