Every 14 seconds. That’s how often analysts predict ransomware will attack a business this year. Despite the best efforts to thwart ransomware attacks, cyber criminals are innovative, and they continue to create new malware. This means more sophisticated and targeted ransomware attacks are coming—all with the same goal: Disrupt business operations in the hopes victims will pay to restore order. No industry is immune. And because enterprises are now even more attractive targets than consumers, your organization must proactively prepare for when, not if, cyber criminals come for your data.

"Multi-stage attacks are an increasingly popular approach used by cybercriminals. By sending a malicious attachment in a phishing email that contains an embedded URL, with no malevolent code, attackers can evade existing security solutions, like sandboxes and AV. How do you prevent these attacks before they happen? Download this white paper to find out: *How Menlo Security Labs recently isolated a multi-stage document attack *What tools, techniques and procedures ( TTPs ) are attackers using to infect victims’ devices *How Isolation can foil the attack before it can even start "

2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.

Health care is often considered a lucrative business for those involved in waste, fraud and abuse. Today’s ever-accelerating technology changes make data related to health care, medical and financial issues even more attractive (and profitable) to cybercriminals who sell medical identities and siphon money from stolen financial records. Risks are exponentially increased because of organizations’ reliance on electronic systems for mission-critical functions. According to 61% of respondents to the SANS 2014 State of Cybersecurity in Health Care Organizations survey, medical/health record systems are considered the most at-risk information asset among the 224 health care-related organizations represented in the survey.

Cyber attacks are growing more sophisticated and, more often than not, target small and midsize businesses (SMBs). One unlucky click - a malicious email attachment, a link to a legitimate but compromised website - could result in a costly data breach that drains your bank account and customer trust. This paper explains targeted attacks and examines reasons cyber attackers are aiming at small and midsize businesses, including: Value of your data; Low risk and high returns for criminals; Why SMBs are easier targets.

Cyber-crime is forecast to cost the global economy $6 trillion by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2016. Described by some as the “greatest threat to every company in the world”, public concern for the safety of data is growing – not just in how criminals might use stolen data to commit fraud, but also in how personal data is used by the organizations we engage with.

The old canon of long-lived viruses with random targets created by hacktivists for fame or nuisance has given way to a new generation zeroday/hour threats from organized criminals, with hand-picked targets and specific, malicious intent. In mid-2014, on a daily basis, Webroot saw 25,000 new malicious URLs, 777,000 new unknown files, many of which are malicious, and 1,000 new phishing sites. In the face of such exponential growth, traditional, reactive security can’t hope to keep up. Not only is the volume of unknown threats overwhelming existing security solutions, but the unique characteristics of unknown threats are also making it difficult for traditional security to catch them.
