After suffering a ransomware attack last October that left several systems inaccessible, mailing equipment manufacturer Pitney Bowes reports that it recently blocked another ransomware attack before any data was encrypted and says there's "no evidence of further unauthorized access to our IT systems."
Security and risk experts from Forrester and Neustar advise on what you need to know about today's cyberthreats, including website vulnerabilities, APIs, third-party party scripts, nefarious bots and DDoS attacks.
The average ransom paid by victims to ransomware attackers reached $111,605 in the first quarter of this year, up 33% from the previous quarter, reports ransomware incident response firm Coveware, which sees the Sodinokibi, Ryuk and Phobos malware families continuing to dominate.
Three recently disclosed health data security incidents - including the discovery of a large email hack that happened nearly a year ago - serve as reminders of the ongoing incident response challenges facing healthcare organizations. And these difficulties are likely to worsen during the COVID-19 crisis.
We typically think of supply chain attacks as stealthy attacks on hardware components, such as malware on laptops and network devices. But this particular supply chain attack was an attack on a service provider.

As the COVID-19 crisis continues, healthcare organizations need to ramp up efforts to mitigate the threats posed by cybercriminals who are trying to exploit the chaos, says attorney Jason G. Weiss, a cyber forensics expert and retired FBI agent.
Travelex, a London-based foreign currency exchange that does business in 26 countries, including the U.S., paid a ransomware gang $2.3 million to regain access to its data following an attack, the Wall Street Journal reports. The incident crippled the company's customer services for weeks.
Cybercrime groups and nation-state hacking gangs are continuing to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic to further their aims, U.K. and U.S. security agencies warn in a joint alert. While overall attack levels haven't increased, they say, "the frequency and severity of COVID-19-related cyberattacks" looks set to surge.

DDoS attacks represent a consistent and persistent threat to the digital operations and security of organizations everywhere. The attacks can be used to severely degrade network performance to the point of inoperability.
Cryptomining malware has exploded on the threat landscape, becoming one of the most common malware attacks and posing a significant risk to your IT assets.
In this whitepaper learn everything you need to know about cryptomining including:
What it does
How it gets in
How to recognize and prevent it
As the COVID-19 outbreak has intensified, so too has cybercrime, including ransomware, Interpol, the international crime-fighting agency, warns. Despite some gangs claiming to no longer be targeting healthcare organizations, experts have seen "no abatement, empathy or free decryptor" from any of them.
A recently uncovered spear-phishing campaign is using fears of the COVID-19 pandemic to spread an information stealer called LokiBot. FortiGuard Labs researchers find that cybercriminals are once again using World Health Organization images as a lure.
Users - One of the Weakest Links in Your Cybersecurity Strategy
They say 'it's all about who you know' - for cybersecurity, that's partially true. If a cyberattacker knows your users, there's a good chance they can get into your network. Why? Because they can take what they know - usually an email address or...
The "human factor" has become a key discussion point in the cyber security community; the humans behind both threats and security have been sorely overlooked. Even the CISO, the conductor at the head of every security team, has been an elusive figure.
Nominet interviewed 400 CISOs and 400 C-Suite executives on the...
