Learn about how the internet has changed over the past year and see how these major changes have affected security protocols and how your organization should respond to keep current in a world that is run by the Internet.
2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.
Security is a growing concern in our increasingly connected Internet of Things. Everything that is connected is potentially subject to malicious and criminal attack. Learn how to incorporate security analysis and development techniques to build secure smarter systems.
You have to know the threats to stop them. It's not a question of if – but when and how – Internet criminals will get into your network.
The Cisco 2014 Annual Security Report highlights the most current security concerns, such as shifts in malware, trends in vulnerabilities, and the revival of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
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.
Email. It can be the source of some of IT's biggest headaches. As it eats up storage and bandwidth, it also opens up holes in your IT security plan. But there is good news. Mail Express can easily solve your most troublesome headaches surrounding email and it can reduce costs, too!
Recent high-profile data breaches and numerous waves of widely publicised internet
attacks have made everyone nervous about security. Families, small businesses and
other organisations are struggling to figure out how to protect themselves.
Competitive pressures from peers are forcing CSPs to evolve beyond connectivity and offer incremental valueadded
services to sustain revenue growth. Security services are an obvious candidate for consideration since
awareness of the need for security protections is extremely high due to regular media coverage highlighting
Threat trends and strong alignment with large customer segments are creating opportunity for CSPs to offer
a foundational layer of web protection for every Internet access connection. They can provide a previously
unavailable level of web security that reduces the risk their customers face, without imposing a configuration
or management burden.
Attacks on financial services institutions are growing in both quantity and sophistication. Our new State of the Internet/Security report studies criminal behavior across this advanced and expansive financial services attack economy: from a popular authentication mechanism for staging credential stuffing attacks to the use of stolen identities to cash out ill-gotten gains. The report identifies leading DDoS and application-layer attack vectors, lucrative phishing variants, and how criminals stage decoy attacks to distract from their real targets. Attacks that prove successful in financial services often move on to other industries. Download the report, and see what petabytes of data tell us.

How to boost results, cut costs and manage risk in an internet-connected world
Digital transformation is driving change across the world, creating new opportunities to boost business productivity, while cutting the costs of infrastructure and operations. Increasingly distributed?organizations are re-architecting their networks and security to move their most valuable data?and applications to the cloud, in order to give their users much richer, faster, less expensive?access than ever before. Enabling remote sites and off-network users to securely connect?direct-to-cloud is the new challenge facing enterprises and government agencies.?
How can distributed organizations achieve the reliable, secure connectivity to the cloud they?need? Many are now using internet technologies?for connect all of their users to cloud-based applications more productively and cost-effectively than ever before.

How to accelerate

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly transformed the digital landscape and the world we live in. Intelligent devices and sensors connect smart cars, robotic manufacturing equipment, smart medical equipment, smart cities, industrial control systems, and much more in a way that improves lives and saves businesses billions of dollars. But along with its benefits, rapid IoT growth introduces a new dimension of security vulnerabilities that dramatically escalates the nature and seriousness of cybercrime risks.
In addition to traditional confidentiality cyber risks, IoT threats include attacks that can:
• Render smart appliances useless
• Shut down city power grids
• Threaten lives through hacked pacemakers and other medical devices.
Such security flaws not only endanger lives, frustrate customers, and disrupt business operations, but they create significant cost and public relations damage for IoT developers and manufacturers.
The average company uses more than 50 security vendors.
Firewalls, Web proxies, SIEM, Appliances & Third-party intelligence.
The list goes on — and sometimes you still find your stack coming up short when it comes to securing users anywhere they access the internet. Strengthening your security stack doesn’t mean a massive overhaul or a loss of customization and control. Check out these 6 ways to amplify and extend your stack with cloud security from Cisco Umbrella.
