Cyber attacks are on the rise, and it’s no secret that
governmental organizations—both federal, state and local—
have found themselves the target of numerous high-profile attacks. But with so much critical information at stake, what should agencies
know about breaches, and how to defend aga...
A rash of recent high-profile data breaches
among well-known companies has drawn
attention to the critical role that corporate
directors play in cyber security. Boards are increasingly
involved in assessing the risk, improving the security
profile of the companies they advise, and managing the
Cyber-attack volume has never been higher, and if your defenses can’t
keep up, you dramatically increase your risk of a breach. Attackers
have the intellectual resources, the computing power, and the
backbone of the fastest digital delivery networks. They can iterate on
your defenses at will, ...
Today's threat landscape continues to evolve, making preventive measures less and less reliable for thwarting sophisticated attackers. The days of "smash-and-grab" attacks are over. Once inside the network, today's attackers are likely to remain active in the breached environment, conducting stealth...
The next generation of cyber attacks has changed radically and are targeted to get something valuable—sensitive, personal information, intellectual property, authentication credentials, and insider information. Each attack is multi-staged with steps to get in, to call back from the compromised net...
Protect against signature-based and the latest unknown threats with an endpoint solution that gathers real-time intelligence from multiple sources.
This paper offers a better and more current framework to understand both the next-generation threat landscape of advanced malware and the five key design principles needed to eliminate the devil’s bargain implicit in today’s dated and highly ineffective rule-, signature- and list-based defenses.
This handbook shines a light on the dark corners of advance malware, both to educate as well as to spark renewed efforts against these stealthy and persistent threats. By understanding the tools being used by criminals, we can better defend our nations, our critical infrastructures and our citizens....
The new threat landscape has changed. Cybercriminals and nation-states are aggressively pursuing valuable data assets, such as financial transaction information, product design blueprints, user credentials to sensitive systems, and other intellectual property. Simply put, the cyber offense has outpa...
Today, federal agencies are under virtually constant attack, targeted by increasingly sophisticated
and well-funded criminals and nation-states. The increasing efficacy of advanced persistent threats
(APTs) continues to highlight the inadequacies of traditional signature-based defense mechanisms s...
