Beyond Identity Access Management: The Next Steps in Post-Perimeter Defense

By Carolyn Crandall, Chief Security Advocate, Attivo Networks The last few years have seen an increased acceptance that traditional perimeter-based defenses such as firewalls are not enough, and that attention needs to shift to identity security. This approach focuses on verifying the identity of users with a high degree of accuracy, working on the assumption …

Amid Today’s Threat Landscape, Protecting Active Directory is a CISO-Level Concern

Despite Active Directory’s critical role in today’s IT infrastructure, CISOs rarely list protecting it as a top priority. They assume that policy management and periodic audits are sufficient to cover it, and too often, it fades into the background as part of the plumbing — something they just expect to function as it should. Active …

Challenges 2021 holds for cybersecurity in Australia’s energy sector

If 2020 has been the year of unprecedented disruption on a global scale, 2021 will be the one when many people begin picking up the pieces. The COVID-19 pandemic caused unexpected and rapid change on all fronts. With virtually no warning, energy companies had to shift most of their staff into a “work-from-home” mode. Meanwhile, …

CISOs Weigh In: Detection Across Attack Surfaces Is their Top Priority

Authored by: Carolyn Crandall, Chief Deception Officer, Attivo Networks – Earlier this year, we worked with SINC to conduct a study on the state of cybersecurity in the United States today. The research focused on companies with over 1,000 employees and over $25 million in annual sales, and respondents were CISOs, CIOs, Cybersecurity Directors, and other high-level security executives within a wide range of industries such as legal, education, entertainment, and healthcare. Our goal was to learn about the highest priority concerns for these executives, how they prioritize and evaluate their activities, and what tools and resources they employ.

Las prioridades del CISO: La Visibilidad de la red

Escrito Por: Juan Vazquez, Gerente de Ventas Regionales – Uno de los problemas que añejamente han enfrentado las organizaciones respecto al tema de ciberseguridad, es la falta de visibilidad sobre la red interna y de manera muy particular la detección de ciber amenazas que se ignoran durante el “movimiento lateral” como parte del ciclo de vida de estas.

Four things to know about Deception Technology and EDR

Many will advocate that the cybersecurity battle is fought at the endpoint. Completely secure these devices and the attacker will not be able to advance their attack. This belief has fueled a new interest and focus on moving from endpoint protection (EPP) to endpoint detection and response solutions (EDR) as well as managed detection and response (MDR) solutions. The threat landscape is rapidly changing, and organizations’ defenses need to change with it. The latest generation of sophisticated attackers have proven that they can evade anti-virus solutions and bypass traditional perimeter defenses. Given their ability to routinely compromise networks, it has become more important than ever to layer in a “Defense in Depth” strategy that includes prevention, detection, and response. In many cases, predictive measures are also becoming a factor, increasing the need for collection of threat intelligence, which may have been discarded with prior prevention-only approaches.

Reducing Dwell Time of POS Attacks Can be Deceptively Simple

Attacks on Point-of-Sale (POS) systems continue to occur at staggering rates and retailers remain exposed as vulnerabilities in point-of-sale systems afford weak links for attackers to exploit. According to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR), of the more than 53,000 incidents examined, 2,216 were confirmed data breaches. The Gemalto Breach Level Index, shows retail at 11% of all breaches in 2017, in 3rd place, only slightly behind Financial at 12%, and Healthcare at a staggering 27%. These findings underscore that cybercrime continues to have a far-reaching impact on businesses across all regions and industries and retail remains squarely in the attacker’s cross-hairs.

A New Battle Plan for Defeating Cyber Threats

The bad news is that cyber security threats are at an all-time high, but the good news is that security awareness is too. It has the attention of every boardroom in the country; the awareness around security is the highest I’ve seen it during my nearly 30 years in business.

So, what does that mean for CIOs and CISOs? Most importantly, more awareness means more dollars in the budget dedicated to security. The numbers reflect that. Global IT security spending will grow from $71.1 billion last year to a record $76.9 billion in 2015, according to Gartner.
