Learn how cyber threat intelligence (CTI) helps you bolster defenses, hunt down adversaries,investigate incidents and make better security decisions. While once considered a “nice to have”, Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is now widely considered an essential weapon against breaches. A recent study by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) found that 72 percent of organizations plan to increase CTI spending — further validation of its important role in your security strategy. Yet, because threat intelligence comes in many shapes and forms, it is often misunderstood. This white paper, “Threat Intelligence, Cybersecurity’s Best Kept Secret,” offers in-depth coverage of CTI, including the different categories of threat intelligence and use cases that demonstrate CTI’s effectiveness in thwarting today’s most dangerous and sophisticated attackers. You’ll also learn how the right CTI can empower better security and executive decisions, while dramatically improving your organization's security pos

By 2021, cyber attacks are expected to cause $6 trillion in damages worldwide. To combat, spending is predicted to hit $1 trillion between 2017 and 2021. Attackers benefit from an infinite amount of time and tactics at their disposal, as they work to get around the typical static network and endpoint defenses organizations put in place. Deception can complement endpoint and network defenses, adding dynamic security mechanisms that can be customized for every environment to take the attacker’s advantage away. While endpoint and network security protects you from being compromised, deception mitigates the effects of a compromise by detecting it early and identifying the attacker intent which helps coordinate a faster and better response. Read this white paper to find out more.

Time has become a critical capability in being able to extract the business value enterprises want from their data and computing infrastructure, as well as to protect the business value that has already been created. In multiple areas of cyber security, time is currently working in favor of the attackers — and time is the strategic advantage that the defenders need to regain. In this report, Aberdeen Group provides four illustrative examples of how recapturing an advantage of time can help defenders to reduce their risk, in the fundamental categories of data protection, threat detection and incident response, data center / cloud security, and endpoint security.

Threat Intelligence is one of the most critical weapons we can use in cyber defense. Knowing which attackers are trying to target your organization, as well as how, why, and when gives you an advantage when trying to thwart these attacks. In today’s landscape, security researchers are a modern-day version of Sherlock Holmes. They’re constantly analyzing clues to an adversary’s motives and techniques, tracking down their ephemeral footprints amidst the chaos of our cyber community. However, these researches can also make hasty conclusions before all the facts are gathered, and dismiss the most important clues during investigations. This evaluation guide is designed to help you evaluate threat intelligence service providers, so that you can effectively put threat intelligence to work for you. You’ll learn: • The 3 characteristics to look for when evaluating threat intelligence vendors • The most important questions to ask when evaluating threat intelligence vendors and what to listen for

Human targeted attacks continued to lead the pack in 2016. Attackers’ used automation and personalisation to increase the volume and click-through rates of their campaigns. Taking a page from the B2B e-marketer’s playbook, cyber criminals are adopting marketing best practices and sending their campaigns on Tuesdays and Thursdays when click-through rates are higher. Meanwhile, BEC and credential phishing attacks targeted the human factor directly--no technical exploits needed. Instead, they used social engineering to persuade victims into sending money, sensitive information and account credentials. Timing is everything—attackers know that hitting your employees with a well-crafted email at the just the right time produces the best results. Of course, this varies by region. So if you are responsible for worldwide SecOps, you need visibility into not only attack patterns but also when and which employees tend to click.

Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years—social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones. Such attacks are neither advanced nor particularly sophisticated when broken down into their individual components and often rely on the weakest link in any organization—the user. However, the way in which hackers use combinations of techniques and the persistent behavior of the attackers is something that does set APTs apart from other attempts to compromise security. This paper is designed to give you an overview of the common characteristics of APTs, how they typically work, and what kind of protection is available to help reduce the risk of an attack.

Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s

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.

A paradigm shift is underway in the cybersecurity industry. Cybersecurity professionals are moving from a focus on attacker prevention to attacker detection. Preventing the “bad guys” from getting in is still important, but cyber adversaries are increasingly able to bypass even the most sophisticated network defenses. Once inside, it is more important than ever to find these attackers fast, before their activities get buried in the daily volume and pulse of network communications. This is where security analytics holds promise. Security analytics provides the necessary and timely visibility into normal and abnormal network behavior. This visibility enables devices and entities acting suspiciously to be quickly identified and investigated.

Research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by Oracle, provides answers. The results show that a proactive security strategy backed by a fully engaged C-suite and board of directors reduced the growth of cyber-attacks and breaches by 53% over comparable firms. These findings were compiled from responses by 300 firms, across multiple industries, against a range of attack modes and over a two-year period from February 2014 to January 2016. The lessons are clear. As cyber-attackers elevate their game, the response must be an enterprise solution. Only C-suites and boards of directors marshal the authority and resources to support a truly enterprise-wide approach. In sum, proactive cyber-security strategies, supported by senior management, can cut vulnerability to cyber-attack in half.

Intrusion Detection Systems have ceased to live up to their name and have lost their ability to spot today’s sophisticated intrusions. Consequently, cyber attackers are taking advantage of it by launching more evasive and strategic threats that spread rapidly within networks. And security teams are left without the proper tools or insight to identify intrusions that pose the biggest risk.
