Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) operators have proven they can breach enterprises like yours by undermining your critical security controls when you fail to protect digital certificates and cryptographic keys. Not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.
This paper reveals how not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.

This FAQ tells you how to move beyond the old trade-off between anti-malware effectiveness and speed. It answers questions such as what is wrong with conventional approaches, which includes the inability of clients to perform signature matching operations on today’s more than 70 million malware variants. It also discusses how the cloud and behavioral detection overcome the limitations of signature-based approaches. Finally, it answers questions about how cloud solutions can offer specific benefits such as:
• Improving speed by offloading pattern matching from endpoints
• Eliminating large signature downloads
• Stopping zero day attacks
BUSINESS CHALLENGE Proactively prevent business disruption as a result of cyberattacks
IT ENVIRONMENT Kaspersky antivirus, layered enterprise security
SOLUTION Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection
RESULTS Detected and eliminated thousands of threats that other solutions missed
Delivered visibility into entire installed base of endpoints, regardless of location
Saved time and accelerated response via the cloud console
Prevented PUPs and exploits from gaining entry
As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and shared information through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater for using technology to improve the way the government interacts with constituents. However, increasing dependence on web and network services also makes government a tempting target for hackers. Distributed Denial of Service attacks, data breaches, leaks, the risks can be enormous. Recent events have shown us that now more than ever, government servers are getting victimized by well-funded teams of foreign hackers, possibly funded by their government.
Watch this webinar for a discussion on:
• Advanced threats and their potential points of entry
• Why Advanced Targeted Attacks will continue to confound organizations with even the best defenses
• Methods, practices, and technologies to help quickly detect and respond to these advanced attacks

Online fraud is becoming more and more sophisticated, as cybercriminals try and keep a step ahead of fraud solutions and tools. One of the results of this arms race is the recent surge in ATO – account takeover – attacks, a form of fraud which is particularly difficult to detect. In 2017 ATO led to $5.1 billion in losses, a staggering 122% increase over the $2.3 billion lost in 2016.
This whitepaper examines the "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) movement, from carrying around a floppy disk to today's "cloud" services. This paper explains that employees may not be aware that their file transfer methods can cause a risk to security. Ways to ensure that employees can securely send files without risking corporate data security and what that dangers are with BYOD transfers are also discussed. Recent security breaches are referenced in the paper, and why such attacks are expected to continue into the future. The paper concludes with a description of how companies can ensure data security and how Globalscape's secure file transfer products meet and exceed that need.
The financial services industry is one of the largest and most
sought-after targets for attackers. This particular industry revolves
around trust and security, and because of this, these elements are
quite often the key focal point for criminals.
Successful attacks can quickly translate into the dissemination of
massive amounts of personal information and monetary gains
by the attacker. Criminals targeting the financial services industry
do so by leveraging various attack surfaces, such as people,
processes, applications, or systems.
Regardless of where the financial institutions are located in
the world, staying aware of the forefront of new attack trends
is imperative for keeping their systems and customers safe.
Understanding the ecosystem of attacks, how different layers
interact, and the booming economy spawned by it gives financial
services organizations the edge they need.
The attacks and tools being used against financial
services organizations are part of a complex
ecosystem. This may seem like an obvious statement
at first glance. When you read most industry reports,
they tend to focus on a single aspect of the whole
ecosystem, as if it were unrelated to other types of
attacks. To be honest, we’ve been just as guilty of
having a myopic view of attack traffic as anyone else.
We wanted to do something different for this report.
Instead of looking at a single type of attack, we
stepped back to look at attacks against banks, credit
unions, trading companies, and other organizations
that make up financial services as a whole. Most
defenders only see a very small segment of the
overall traffic, whether they’re the target or the
vendor supplying defensive tools. The breadth of
Akamai’s products and our visibility into a significant
portion of Internet traffic allows us to research
multiple stages of the attack economy.

Today’s enterprise is vastly different than five years ago: 75 percent of the workforce is mobile, 90 percent of companies support Mac devices, five malware attacks happen every second and half of enterprise data lives outside the data center. As everything around you changes, you’re expected to support the enterprise with flat budgets and static head counts. Endpoint backup enables you to protect enterprise data and mitigate the growing risk of data loss, ransomware and insider threat.

Cyber attacks are growing more sophisticated and, more often than not, target small and midsize businesses (SMBs). One unlucky click - a malicious email attachment, a link to a legitimate but compromised website - could result in a costly data breach that drains your bank account and customer trust.
This paper explains targeted attacks and examines reasons cyber attackers are aiming at small and midsize businesses, including:
Value of your data;
Low risk and high returns for criminals;
Why SMBs are easier targets.
While there are an innumerable number of ways you could improve your business’s information security posture, for the sake of brevity let’s shorten that list to the methods which often provide great benefits. Here are five ways that you can help your business reduce the chance of being victimized by cybercrime.

"Cyberattacks on Internet of Things (IoT) and operational technology now expose businesses to greater risk. But, with all the security technology available today, we asked ourselves the question, why do they keep happening? ForeScout commissioned Forrester Consulting to see if organizations can adequately and accurately secure their networks with the rise of IoT-connected devices. Read the Report to learn more about the findings.
This Webcast , discusses how hybrid web security can tackle these tough challenges. Hear pros and cons of various deployment options and key considerations for even the most cloud-hesitant security professionals.
In the year 2016 alone, the world learned about security breaches that compromised nearly 2 billion records.1 Employee endpoints are increasingly targeted: Nearly two-thirds (64%) of external attacks last year targeted a corporate-owned, employee-owned, or mobile device.2 Data breaches cost companies time and money, weaken brand reputation, and jeopardize customer and employee trust.
The US healthcare industry has historically lagged behind others in the maturity of security capabilities, only recently catching up on data security and privacy in response to HIPAA. But there is a wide range of other mounting risks unique to healthcare that S&R pros in healthcare can’t ignore — greater regulatory pressure, increasing targeted attacks, the frightening uncertainty of IoT security, and global economic pressures. This report outlines the most important security capabilities for security leaders in this sector to implement in the face of these challenges.
IBM Security, in partnership with the Center for Applied Insights, has launched the 2014 IBM CISO Assessment.
