From point-of-sale hacks to malware and DDoS attacks, the top cyberthreats of 2012 have been aggressive and strong. Is it time for organizations to adopt a "hack back" strategy against perceived attackers?
The recent wave of DDoS attacks against top U.S. banks is a wake-up call for organizations that are ill-prepared to fight against such an attack. NIST's Matthew Scholl offers strategies to mitigate the threat.
As missiles and bombs do real damage in Israel and Gaza, a veteran Israeli cybersecurity expert, Amichai Shulman, downplays the significance of the assaults waged against Israeli websites, contending any damage has been minimal.
Leaders at four security technology companies say the recent distributed-denial-of-service attacks against 10 U.S. banks highlight the need for new approaches to preventing and responding to online outages.
Employing cloud computing services could help organizations defend against the type of distributed denial of service attacks that have temporarily crippled the online service of major American banks, says NIST's Matthew Scholl.
