Adversaries spend 100 percent of their time finding weak links and using them to their advantage. And as the Internet of Things accelerates and our dependence on the connected environment continues to expand, so do opportunities for attackers. Download the Cisco 2014 Midyear Security Report to learn about the different types of vulnerabilities that exist in the systems we rely upon, including the Internet itself, and what can be done to reduce their number and impact.

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.

It’s possible to lead the world in an industry—medicine in this case—and to simultaneously lag behind when it comes to network security. One large national hospital system faced serious IT challenges. Network investment had been put off to the point of opening critical security vulnerabilities. A massive attack surface and limited visibility meant a threat could penetrate the network and remain hidden for months. It put critical systems, employees, patients, and the hospital’s reputation at risk.

What is ransomware? Ransomware is a malicious software designed to hold a user’s files (such as healthcare records, financial contracts, manufacturing blueprints, software code, and other documents) for ransom by encrypting them and demanding the user pay a fee (often in Bitcoin) to decrypt them. How ransomware works Attackers initiate attacks using an array of tactics. Ransomware infections often first begin with an exploit kit — which are software kits designed to identify software vulnerabilities on endpoints and then upload and execute malicious code on the endpoint. Although variants of ransomware behave differently — there are many ways that Cisco can help. Download this whitepaper today to find out more.

"It’s no secret that the way people work has changed dramatically over the past few years. As highly distributed environments become the norm, security teams are scrambling to protect users, the growing number of device types they carry, and their data. With more users, devices, and applications connecting to the network, the number of risks and vulnerabilities is also increasing — triggering a total transformation in the security landscape. In this research readout, we explore the complex factors that make remote and roaming user security a challenge, and the emerging solutions best positioned to meet the needs of today’s increasingly distributed enterprise.Explore the complex factors that make remote and roaming user security a challenge, and the emerging solutions best positioned to meet the needs of today’s increasingly distributed enterprise.

Every year, the public relations specialists from at least one bluechip company invariably find themselves working around the clock on a crisis communications effort, attempting to explain to an angry and justifiably fearful public what led to their company compromising customer data. There’s always an immediate hit to the company’s reputation, resulting in a loss of brand loyalty, as customers take their business elsewhere. This white paper provides strategies and best practices for distributed enterprises to protect their networks against vulnerabilities, threats, and malicious attacks.

Cyber threat intelligence is unquestionably a hot buzzword in the security industry these days. It is being used to seek venture capital and fund startups. It is being pitched to the enterprise market by providers and consultants. However, in this paper, we argue that the majority of what is being billed as “threat intelligence” isn’t. It’s data. From lists of bad IPs or application vulnerabilities to malware signatures, social media data or indicators of compromise (“IOCs”), none of these things are “intelligence.” They’re data. In this white paper, we define the difference between intelligence and data, and then illustrate the theoretical discussion in a concise case study in the tangible terms of a real-world practitioner and an actual event.

Nowhere else could that wise advice be more relevant than in contemplating the effects of cyber attacks on financial institutions. As stated in a recent issue of the FDIC’s Supervisory Insights, the risks presented by cyber attacks have become “one of the most critical challenges [in the last decade] facing the financial services sector due to the frequency and increasing sophistication of cyber attacks.” In just a year’s time, from 2014 to 2015, the occurrence of security incidents increased 38 percent as reported in a survey of 10,000 security, IT, and executive personnel. Just as concerning, the attackers perpetrating these breaches were able to compromise the victim organization within a matter of minutes in 60 percent of cases.

Regardless of how many security controls are placed on a network and the components that go into making a network operate, there will always be vulnerabilities in a connected world. So, what do you do in an environment that allows for such risk of compromise? One of the best methods of protecting organizations is by ensuring that response capabilities are effective and efficient, and one of the most valuable steps in strengthening a response capability is learning from others’ experiences. This white paper discusses the pain points that organizations grapple with when responding to incidents, and how they can address them.

Code signing essentially relies on a Public Key Infrastructure, which means code signing certificates are made out of a pair of public and private key - the public key is signed by a trusted Certificate Authority such as DigiCert, and the private key is kept by the owner and used to sign the code to secure. Although the technology behind code signing certificates is proven, managing them - and by extension managing the private keys - is an activity that can be very complex, especially when the key owner(s) do not understand their value. In order to help customers to solve for the shortcomings in regard to the management of code signing private keys and user access, DigiCert has developed Secure App Service.

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.

At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers. Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard
