DDoS attacks have long been known as the main form of cyber attack risk. “The Financial Inspection Manual” revised by the Japanese government’s Financial Services Agency in April 2015, identifies the risk of "DDoS attacks", and the need to take countermeasures is strongly emphasized. Other government agencies also acknowledge the frequency and severity of DDoS attacks. However, a clear method to completely prevent DDoS attacks has not been established yet. Why is that? What are the best measures that companies can take at the present time?

The traditional approach to cybersecurity has been to use
a prevention-centric strategy focused on blocking attacks.
While prevention-centric approaches do stop many threats,
many of today’s advanced and motivated threat actors are
circumventing these defenses with creative, stealthy,
targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected
for significant periods of time.
Do you know what happens during the first 60 minutes of a phishing attack? In this paper, security industry analyst Derek Brink, a Research Fellow at Aberdeen Group, crunches real-world data and measures the business risks of phishing attacks, including calculating the costs of phishing to businesses, the probability of small and large losses, and the ROI on incremental investments in advanced security to prevent phishing.
Cyren examined 11.7 million inbound emails at companies using various email security solutions to measure any possible “security gaps” in their protection,and identify any potential risks for the companies. Solutions tested ranged from hosted email services with included security filtering to on-premises email security gateways.
The study was conducted during September and October 2017, and revealed that, on average, 10.5% of email delivered to users after being scanned by their current email security solution was spam, phishing, or malware email. The report also summarizes results for three separate cases, which illustrate how penetration rates can vary across different companies.
We are fully entrenched in the digital age, so much so that you're probably reading this with a smartphone or mobile device within arms length. Similarly government is also making the shift towards a digital future.
But with moving away from paper-based records and towards digital data, there are new opportunities for potential security risks regarding government data and content. As cyberthreats continue to grow in number and sophistication, agencies should be looking at features to secure every level of their digital infrastructure and content.
Check out this new pocket guide to learn content security best practices, why it matters, government rules and regulations related to digital data and its associated security and content challenges. You’ll also learn tips and tricks to apply at your agency to make sure your content is secure.
Disaster Recovery Plan Roadmap
Learn how automatic backup delivers guaranteed business data
protection and recovery—no matter the threat.
When ransomware hits, the average small business experiences two full days of downtime. One-third of businesses lose revenue and all experience brand and loyalty damage that’s harder to quantify. To stop the bleeding, most small businesses end up paying at least $2,500 to get their data back. But paying the ransom doesn’t guarantee anything. Plenty of businesses have fully complied with the ransom demands, only to have the ransomer increase the ransom request—or simply take off with the ransom and the data.

Disruptors now harness the power of digital to create new sources of
value that reduce costs, improve the customer experience, and scale
their offerings. Digital disruptors also enjoy a decided innovation
advantage over established companies: they are better able to
identify new opportunities, and move faster to take advantage of
In this intensely competitive environment, startups and agile firms are overturning incumbents with digital business models, products, and services.
Today’s threat landscape is nothing like that of just 10 years ago. Simple attacks that caused containable damage have given way to modern cybercrime operations that are sophisticated, well-funded, and capable of causing major disruptions to organizations and the national infrastructure. Not only are these advanced attacks difficult to detect, but they also remain in networks for long periods of time and amass network resources to launch attacks elsewhere.
Traditional defenses that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection are no longer adequate. It’s time for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum—before, during, and after an attack.
The Cisco® 2016 Midyear Cybersecurity Report—which presents research, insights, and perspectives from Cisco Security Research—updates security professionals on the trends covered in our previous security report while also examining developments that may affect the security landscape later this year.
MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary
Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes.
Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.
