Cybercriminals have been upping their game this year; the use of file-less attacks with macros and PowerShell scripts to evade preventive defenses and sandboxes mean that they are getting better than ever at using phishing, social engineering and drive-by techniques to gain initial footholds in private domains – and once they arrive, they are often avoiding detection for extended periods of time. Between April and July 2018, Fidelis interviewed over 580 security professionals from around the globe to understand how they are shifting their detection strategies and how confident organizations are in their ability to not only prevent targeted attacks – but root out threats that have by-passed traditional preventive defenses.

This book provides an overview of network security in general, and explains how cybercriminals can use hidden or currently undetectable methods to penetrate protected network systems. Advanced evasion techniques (AETs) bypass current common network security solutions. They can transport any attack or exploit through network security devices and firewalls, next generation firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and even routers doing deep packet inspection. In this book you’ll find out all about AETs, and get useful pointers and advice to help you secure your organization. If you’re working in government, the military, banking, industry, e-commerce or with other critical infrastructures, read this book to find out what you’re up against and how to better protect against advanced evasions.

Security is everyone’s job today, from consumers, to system administrators, to executives. If you are doing business, you need to elevate the priority of security across your organization and data center. Over the years, cybercriminals have gotten more advanced and better funded. They are entire teams of highly trained hackers, and they have built it into a very profitable business. Cybercrime is big business. In many cases, states have built their own cyberattack teams. These teams are no less important to their state strategies than their army or navy. And just like these cyber-attack teams are prepared to attack anyone, you too must be prepared to defend against anyone. Whether you know it or not, you are in a cyber war. You need to be prepared.

Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work. Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.¹ As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.
