What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders can see what’s on the horizon. Many clues are out there—and obvious. The Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report presents our latest security industry advances designed to help organizations and users defend against attacks. We also look at the techniques and strategies that adversaries use to break through those defenses and evade detection. The report also highlights major findings from the Cisco 2018 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, which examines the security posture of enterprises and their perceptions of their preparedness to defend against attacks.

The fact is, defenders can see what’s on the horizon. Many clues are out there—and obvious. For years, Cisco has been warning defenders about escalating cybercriminal activity around the globe. In this, our latest annual cybersecurity report, we present data and analysis from Cisco threat researchers and several of our technology partners about attacker behavior observed over the past 12 to 18 months.

Adversaries and defenders are both developing technologies and tactics that are growing in sophistication. For their part, bad actors are building strong back-end infrastructures with which to launch and support their campaigns. Online criminals are refining their techniques for extracting money from victims and for evading detection even as they continue to steal data and intellectual property.

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.

Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the field can argue against them.

La protección del acceso con privilegios y la prevención de infracciones siguen constituyendo preocupaciones urgentes en empresas de todos los tamaños. Los atacantes recurren a una gama mayor de métodos más sofisticados para infiltrarse en sistemas vulnerables y, a pesar de que las noticias sobre infracciones externas ocupan con frecuencia los titulares, las organizaciones también deben ser capaces de defenderse contra las amenazas internas. De hecho, dado que en la actualidad se recurre de forma generalizada a la externalización y la asociación para acometer labores clave, un mayor número de usuarios tiene, hoy en día, acceso con privilegios a sistemas empresariales de fundamental importancia. Además, resulta primordial que los administradores actuales de los sistemas comprendan cómo se están utilizando estos últimos, quién los usa y en qué condiciones. Desafortunadamente, las soluciones estándar de seguridad no pueden proteger el acceso interno o con privilegios de manera eficaz y ad

"The latest report from Tenable Research analyzes vulnerability prevalence in the wild, highlighting the cyber threats that security practitioners are dealing with in practice – not just in theory. Our research shows that enterprises must triage more than 100 critical vulnerabilities a day. To better understand where to focus remediation efforts, you need to find out how cyber defenders are actually acting. Download the report now to: -See why CVSS is an inadequate prioritization metric – and why you must prioritize vulnerabilities based on actual risk -Discover vulnerability trends in the ever-expanding attack surface -Learn whether your organization has one of the most common vulnerabilities (some are more than a decade old!)"

The Cisco 2016 Annual Security Report—which presents research, insights, and perspectives from Cisco Security Research—highlights the challenges that defenders face in detecting and blocking attackers who employ a rich and ever-changing arsenal of tools. The report also includes research from external experts, such as Level 3 Threat Research Labs, to help shed more light on current threat trends. We take a close look at data compiled by Cisco researchers to show changes over time, provide insights on what this data means, and explain how security professionals should respond to threats.

There has been much speculation (not to mention exaggeration) over recent years about the fabled dark web. We’ve heard how this shady underworld is the refuge of the cybercriminal elite, and even nation-state threat actors. That this is their “Wolf’s Lair,” where they gather to plot the breaching of businesses, the downfall of governments, and the hacking of celebrities. As with much mainstream reporting of technology, and cyber threats in particular, there’s a grain of truth here. This less accessible and more volatile corner of the internet as we know it does offer those with less honourable motive a secret marketplace for their wares. The confusing terminology around what the dark web is or isn’t shouldn’t be a barrier to defenders realizing the anonymous communities, and how it can be used to produce valuable threat intelligence.

Time has become a critical capability in being able to extract the business value enterprises want from their data and computing infrastructure, as well as to protect the business value that has already been created. In multiple areas of cyber security, time is currently working in favor of the attackers — and time is the strategic advantage that the defenders need to regain. In this report, Aberdeen Group provides four illustrative examples of how recapturing an advantage of time can help defenders to reduce their risk, in the fundamental categories of data protection, threat detection and incident response, data center / cloud security, and endpoint security.

In the running battle with cyberthreats, your first line of defense is your IT staff: the system and network administrators, SOC and NOC operators, incident response and forensics analysts, and application development and QA teams. Are these IT professionals ready to take on an ever-growing army of innovative, persistent cybercriminals and hackers? Probably not, if you expect them to acquire the knowledge and skills they need through self-directed study and on-the-job training. There is too much to learn, and few members of the IT staff have the time to research every new threat. And you can’t afford to suffer through APTs, breaches and data leakages just to provide “teachable moments” for IT personnel. There is another solution. Security simulation immerses IT professionals in a realistic online environment and challenges them to fill the roles of cyberattackers and cyberdefenders. It borrows from education theory and online gaming to present knowledge in ways that motivate learning a

For nearly 10 years, viruses endured as the primary method of attack, and over time they were largely matched by defenders’ ability to block and protect against them. Motivated by the notoriety and the knowledge gained by the discovery and publicizing of new vulnerabilities, attackers continued to innovate. What ensued were distinct threat cycles, an “arms race,” so to speak. Approximately every five years attackers would launch new types of threats— from macroviruses to worms to spyware and rootkits—and defenders would quickly innovate to protect networks from them.

Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the field can argue against them. They are atomic. Experts use them like building blocks to derive everything else that is worth knowing in the problem domain. In this paper, I propose that the first principle for all network defenders is to prevent high-risk material impact to the organization.
