Financial services companies have been the target of a serious, sustained, and well-funded DDoS campaign for more than a year. What these attacks have continued to demonstrate is that DDoS will continue to be a popular and increasingly complex attack vector. DDoS is no longer simply a network issue, but is increasingly a feature or additional aspect of other advanced targeted attacks. The motivation of modern attackers can be singular, but the threat landscape continues to become more complex and mixes various threats to increase the likelihood of success. There have certainly been cases where the MSSP was successful at mitigating against an attack but the target Website still went down due to corruption of the underlying application and data. In order to defend networks today, enterprises need to deploy DDoS security in multiple layers, from the perimeter of their network to the provider cloud, and ensure that on-premise equipment can work in harmony with provider networks for effective and robust attack mitigation

In this white paper, John Pescatore of SANS Institute explores how DDoS is used as part of advanced targeted attacks (ATAs) and describes how DDoS detection and prevention tools and techniques can be used against ATAs as well. Today’s DDoS attacks, as damaging as they are, sometimes mask even more threatening and dangerous advanced targeted threats. The good news is that some of the same tools that can detect the footprints of DDoS attacks can also find the telltale signs of ATAs. To be successful, though, enterprises need to coordinate their use of both types of logs and adjust their monitoring parameters correctly. They must also eliminate operational gaps, such as unclear lines of security authority, and limit the use of managed security services that can deprive enterprise security managers of the data they need to detect and stop DDoS attacks and ATAs.

DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7 attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture both during and after migration. Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network, advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web server’s IP

During NSS Labs’ 2018 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test, CylancePROTECT® and CylanceOPTICS™ v2.0.1450 failed to initiate part of the CylanceOPTICS engine, which primarily impacted the exploit and blended threats test categories. This affected the Cylance® position on the Security Value Map (SVM)™. After working closely with NSS, Cylance rolled out a new version of its software (v2.2.1011) for CylanceOPTICS. Cylance submitted this updated product for follow-on testing using the AEP Test Methodology v2.0, the same methodology used in the AEP Group Test. The product improved its Block Rate by 6.9% and its Additional Detection Rate by 0.2%. Learn more about the results in the NSS Labs testing report.

While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

For decades, the financial services industry has endured constant change and uncertainty, from the depths of a financial crisis to widespread regulation overhauls. With the advent of more advanced cybersecurity threats, the industry has responded with rapid digital transformation to remain competitive while also pushing the envelope. Today, managing and mitigating cyber-related risks not only draws government scrutiny, but increased consumer scrutiny as well, with longstanding brand reputations anchored to institutions’ ability to protect its most sensitive data. In a recent survey of Americans, financial information was considered by consumers to be their most valuable personal information, worth even more than personal or family photos and videos. For consumers, failing to protect their data is a grave violation of trust, to the point where 72% would consider leaving their current financial institution if their sensitive information was taken hostage by ransomware.1 Not only does the
