Advanced attackers always use advanced malware, right? Zero-day exploits, targeted malware, powerful modular frameworks- these are the stock and trade of your adversary.
So we've tuned our detection and hunting capability to ferret out the indicators left behind by this malware. Advances in memory forensics,...
Security experts are once again warning all Flash users to either update or uninstall the browser plug-in software to protect themselves against active exploit kit attacks that are targeting a zero-day Flash flaw to install ransomware.
This report from IBM Emergency Response Services discusses four key trends in cybersecurity based on field experience in responding to client security incidents.
In the following whitepaper, you will learn about:
Onion-layered security incidents on the rise
The year of ransomware
Malicious insiders on the...
MedStar is but the latest healthcare entity to fall victim to a ransomware attack. What can organizations do proactively to improve their ransomware defenses and response? PhishMe CEO Rohyt Belani offers insight.
Ransomware is such a serious cybersecurity concern that the FBI has issued new guidance and yet another alert about the threat. Nevertheless, experts say too many organizations are still unaware of the risk, muchless how to mitigate it.
When an organization suffers a data breach, a number of challenges, impacts, and business decisions contribute to the total of all the associated costs. The scope extends beyond a fixed dollar-per-stolen-record calculation, as it invariably includes expenditures for new security measures, legal fees, third-party...
Cyber attackers are not just more sophisticated and more persistent than ever before. They also are greedier, says IBM Security's Limor Kessem, who shares insight on the latest fraud threats to UK banking institutions.
Enterprises are pouring billions of dollars into preventing threat actors from infiltrating the organization. Yet, the rising level of breaches shows that dedicated threat actors will penetrate the organization. Perhaps then the problem is not a technological one, but is rather one of strategy in dealing with...
Malware continues to be an extremely effective tool in the cybercrime arsenal. In this session, we'll discuss how and why - and we'll also examine the connection between fraud and malicious code. We'll investigate how malware is designed to enrich cybercrime gangs and how to prevent intrusions, including:
A new report suggests that a Chinese cyber espionage APT attack group is behind a string of targeted ransomware infections that have slammed U.S. firms. Dig into the details, however, and the report is nothing but speculation, two security experts caution.
Advanced attacks are out, while persistent, relatively simple attacks are in. Despite all of the APT hype in recent years, cybercriminals, and especially nation-state attackers, prefer to keep things simple. Information security experts explain why.
The FBI calls ransomware "a prevalent, increasing threat." One recent campaign earned at least $325 million in global profits, while U.S. victims tell the FBI they paid $24 million in ransoms in 2015. And attackers are plowing profits back into improving their malicious code.
Because of growing cybersecurity concerns, CISOs in the financial sector finally are getting more time with their boards of directors and more direct interaction with senior executives, says John Carlson, chief of staff at the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center.
An estimated half of all ransomware infection victims give in to criminals' ransom demands, thus enticing attackers to refine and continue their campaigns, warns Intel Security's Raj Samani in this video interview.
