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...
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...
In 2015, more breaches than ever before became public
knowledge. Suffice it to say that the security industry
is changing because of new pressures being applied to
these victim organizations. They now have to respond
to the court of public opinion, as well as all other statutes,
Knowing how to protect critical
information, data, and infrastructure
in today’s landscape can be tricky—
especially as the threat landscape
becomes increasingly complex with
state-sponsored cyber espionage and
attacks. The best line of defense often
comes from advance threat protection
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....
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, email-based threats represent significant and persistent risks for government agencies, and
those dangers are only exacerbated by the move to cloud delivery models. This paper shows how
government agencies can capitalize on the benefits of the cloud, while addressing their critical security...
This whitepaper examines the changing threat landscape, how the nature of security threats has evolved, and the potential financial impact across vertical markets and organizations of all sizes. This paper will explain why advanced target attacks have been extremely effective at breaking through tra...
FireEye previously conducted an investigation into a
suspected network intrusion that a university system
administrator discovered when he noticed the presence
of suspicious files on a server. The investigation
revealed a compromise that affected three of the
university’s servers, and involve...
Technology is outpacing our
ability to secure it. Despite
substantial spending on legacy
security products, advanced
attackers are bypassing these
defenses at will and spreading
unchallenged. There’s no single technical answer.
There’s no legislative fix. Bad guys
will always exist, and ...
