Threat actors increasingly look toward illicit cryptomining as an easy source of income. Cryptomining is the production of virtual currency, also known as cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin and Monero. It comes at the expense of system performance and power consumption. Moreover, threat actors are infiltrating networks to use their victims’ computer resources to do this work for them. In this white paper, you will learn how to defend your organization from illicit cryptomining with the Cisco® security portfolio.

IT environments have become much more vulnerable as enterprise mobility, cloud services and “bring-your-own-everything” have broken down the defensible perimeter and added layers of complexity to securing the enterprise. At the same time, the nature of cyber threats has changed dramatically. Threat actors are well organized and well funded, and many of them are known to be supported by nation states. They have sophisticated technical skills which allow these actors to create custom malware for very specific targets, and they are relentless in pursuit of their objectives. Moreover, almost anyone with a malicious intent can purchase malware and rent botnets on the Dark Web, lowering the bar for criminal entities, nation states, and terrorists to use cyber as a weapon of choice towards their intended purpose.

Among the countless changes in Windows 10 Microsoft has provided IT organizations more visibility into auditable actions on Windows 10 machines and the resulting events in the Security Log. Understanding these enhancements is important because we need every edge we can get to detect endpoint intrusions. Threat actors use a sophisticated mix of phishing, social engineering, and malware to attempt to compromise any user within an organization. A seemingly benign order request sent to a salesperson or a benefits summary to someone in HR can contain attachments infected with malware. Once such payloads are in, the goal is to determine how to leverage current users and other accounts on the compromised machine to access valuable and sensitive data, as well as how to spread out within the organization and repeat the process.

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.

In this white paper, we examine notable trends and events in physical security from 2014 and assess what security professionals should expect in 2015. 2014 was truly an unpredictable year in the physical security and executive protection worlds, as large scale events targeted for disruption were executed relatively smoothly, while unforeseen developments in Ukraine and the Ebola outbreak caught many off guard. Looking ahead to 2015, we predict that local issues will continue to gain global importance, threat actors and activists will find new ways to utilize social media to spread their messages, and the lines between physical and digital threats will continue to converge. We also highlight ongoing developments in France, Mexico, Ukraine, and Germany.

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.

Encryption will help to protect data against unauthorized access by outsiders from lost or stolen devices such as laptops, thumb drives, and other removable media. But it does not protect against the insider threat-employees and contractors with authorized access to data who mistakenly or maliciously leak your most valuable assets.

Security practitioners and threat actors are constantly developing new techniques to gain advantages over the other. In recent years, security teams have stepped up their approaches to protecting their infrastructure by fortifying their network perimeter defenses, building up protections against advanced malware, upgrading vulnerable operating systems, automating the delivery of patches to stop exploits, and developing counter-measures to spot intruders. The threat actors looking to circumvent these measures are shifting their attention toward the next weakest link in the security chain – the user.

The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.
