• The .doc file type was the most common attachment type used in spear-phishing attacks, making up more than 52.9 percent of all attachments in September.
• The largest data breach reported in September actually took place in April, and resulted in the exposure of 56 million identities.
• There were 600 vulnerabilities disclosed in the month of September, the highest number so far in 2014 and second-highest in the last 12 months.
This White Paper reviews the current state of enterprise WAN usage, key challenges businesses face today with their WAN, the impact of digital transformation initiatives on the WAN, and key benefits of using software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). The ideas presented in this White Paper draw on the findings of a March 2017 survey of more than 800 network management executives about WAN usage and attitudes. The survey was conducted by IDC and sponsored by Comcast Business.
Online where the reputation and success of your business is often measured by the trust that your customers have in the security of your website, it is important to understand how you can maintain and build on that trust. To that end, SSL/TLS has been the key to trust on the Internet for more than a decade and will continue to be so when it comes to providing the highest levels of protection against evolving cyber security threats. And while, yes, the technology is sophisticated and leading edge, the goal is simple: to make the Internet safer to transact business—for you, your customers and everyone else with whom you interact online.
Please use this document as a reference to understand the threat landscape and understand how you can protect your company and your infrastructure.
Whether you are an individual or a company, you should approach online security in the same way that you would approach physical security for your home or business. Not only does it make you feel safer but it also protects people who visit your home, place of business, or website. It is important to understand the potential risks and then make sure you are fully protected against them. In the fast-paced world of technology, it is not always easy to stay abreast of the latest advancements. For this reason it is wise to partner with a reputable Internet security company.
This guide will de-mystify the technology involved and give you the information you need to make the best decision when considering your online security options. For a glossary of terms, please see “Tech Talk Made Simple” at the end of this document.
White Paper Published By: Symantec Corporation Transport Layer Security or TLS, widely known also as Secure Sockets Layer or SSL, is the most popular application of public key cryptography in the world. It is most famous for securing Web browser sessions, but it has widespread application to other tasks.
This report looks at the challenges and requirements of protecting confidential patient data online, the risk of security breaches in the world of EHR, and the measures that healthcare organizations must take in order to achieve and maintain compliance.
The recent release of the Firesheep Wi-Fi attack tool has increased awareness among both users and attackers of the inherent insecurity of unprotected HTTP connections. Users on unprotected networks who connect to websites through plain HTTP connections expose their connections to those sites to open surveillance and full compromise.
Advances in attacks on network security over the last few years have led to many high-profile compromises of enterprise networks and breaches of data security. A new attack is threatening to expand the potential for attackers to compromise enterprise servers and the critical data on them. Solutions are available, and they will require action by company officers and administrators. “SSLStrip” and related attacks were among the highlights of the July 2009 Black Hat show in Las Vegas. Researcher Moxie Marlinspike combined a number of discrete problems, not all related to SSL, to create a credible scenario in which users attempting to work with secure websites were instead sent to malicious fake sites.
Over the past decade, businesses have had to adapt to an array of technical changes, including an increasingly hostile cyber environment. We saw the early precursors of cybercrime decades ago when computer use was limited to a relatively small group of specialists and electronics enthusiasts. Innovative programmers, some still in high school, would find ways to display annoying messages on their friends’ computers and from there spread to other devices via shared floppy disks.This kind of part practical joke-part vandalism form of malware has been overshadowed by the more serious, technically complex, and financially lucrative form of today’s cybercrime.
In this guide, we will examine major types of threats to information security that businesses face today as well as techniques for mitigating those threats. One of the most important tools available to us is SSL technology.
Businesses face an increasingly complex set of threats to their Web applications—from malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) to disgruntled employees and unintentional data leaks. Although there is no single security measure than can prevent all threats, there are some that provide broad-based mitigation to a number of threats. The use of SSL encryption and digital certificate-based authentication is one of them. Changes in the way we deliver services, the increasing use of mobile devices, and the adoption of cloud computing compounded by the ever-evolving means of stealing information and compromising services leave Web applications vulnerable to attack.
In this chapter, we turn our attention to the combined risk of losing data and losing customer trust.
We often think of malware as being designed to sit beneath the radar, collecting data in stealth mode, for the purposes of fraud or corporate espionage. Increasingly however, we’re witnessing attacks on corporations designed to cause substantial economic losses via wholesale destruction. For example, the Shamoon malware that recently hit Saudi Arabia-based Aramco (the world’s largest oil company) and RasGas (a Qatar-based gas company) corrupted files on tens of thousands of workstations, overwriting the Master Boot Records.
These malware attacks, which may well have targeted website vulnerabilities, resulted in destruction on an industrial scale. At Aramco, IT professionals were forced to replace 30,000 PCs and laptops. RasGas meanwhile, had to shut down all email communications, and the company’s website was forced offline.
