8 Steps to Shore Up Your Defense Against Cyberattack
In the past, it was easy to take mainframe security for granted. The mainframe was locked down behind closed doors, and even if you were able to get into the room, you'd still needed the coding experience to hack it.
Today, the mainframe is closer to the internet...
Ransomware gangs keep innovating: Maze has begun leaking data on behalf of both Lockbit and RagnarLocker, while REvil has started auctioning data - from victims who don't meet its ransom demands - to the highest bidder. Thankfully, security experts continue to release free decryptors for some strains.
As ransomware gangs attempt to boost their illicit profits, the RagnarLocker ransomware gang has brought a new tactic to bear: installing a full virtual machine on victims' systems to hide their crypto-locking malware while it forcibly encrypts files, security firm Sophos warns.
Australian shipping giant Toll Group has vowed to again not pay a ransom after suffering its second ransomware attack of the year. In the latest incident, however, the company warns that attackers also stole corporate data - and it may get leaked.
MITRE ATT&CK (Adversarial Tactics, Techniques & Common Knowledge) has served as a model through which interested parties can learn to identify and map digital intrusions against their existing security technologies allowing them to shore up their gaps and prevent more intrusions on endpoints.
But what about the...
The need for speed is at the heart of why business implement digital transformation strategies. Security professionals charged with protecting digital assets feel the pressure to keep up with the speed of business, but moving fast introduces challenges and uncertainties about where attacks/vulnerabilities are hiding...
Bad news on the ransomware front: Victims that choose to pay attackers' ransom demands - in return for the promise of a decryption tool - last quarter paid an average of $84,116, according to Coveware. But gangs wielding Ryuk and Sodinokibi - aka REvil - often demanded much more.
Does your SOC have a Triad Strategy that includes network-based detection? While the combination of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) along with Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) improves security, a day in the life of a SOC analyst is still stressful due to a constant flood of misleading alerts....
In today's digital environment, protecting sensitive information and sales transaction data is of critical importance. Technology and advanced loyalty programs are driving the collection of additional data, causing consumers to pay more attention to the types of data they are willing to share with merchants.
With all of the tools deployed for
endpoint detection and response,
enterprises today are often overwhelmed
by threat intelligence, says J.J. Thompson
of Sophos. To alleviate "analysis
paralysis," Sophos has launched its
Managed Threat Response service.

Some security experts have prophesied the demise of traditional Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS) for almost 20 years, but this cornerstone of network security continues to soldier on. While next-generation firewalls have added IDPS functionality, they are driven more by policies than true threat...
Deception technology has emerged as a hot practice - but not one that is necessarily on every enterprise's budgeting radar. Don Gray, CTO of PacketViper, talks about the emergence of deception technology and how security leaders can make the case - and find the budget - for its usage.
