Banking is rapidly being transformed by one, distinct theme: digital technology.
For those leading the charge, there is no longer a distinction between a business strategy and a technology strategy. There is just strategy driven by technology and the client needs it will evolve to continually meet. In this new world, upgrading existing operations and making legacy systems fit new challenges is not going to be enough. To succeed, banks need to become future-ready, connected enterprises, backed by a new type of technology and operating model that is nimble enough to adapt to new challenges and growth opportunities.
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
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.

Fraud is scary, and there are many valid reasons for merchants to decline suspicious transactions in the name of fraud prevention. But often, in the quest to avoid abuse, risk-averse vendors take defensive measures too far. According to industry data, the average merchant loses 5.5% of their revenue to false declines — perfectly legitimate orders, rejected because they seem suspicious.

"Malicious cryptomining has consistently been one of the top threats across all internet activity in 2018. Cryptominers tap into an organization’s computing power to create cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Monero — and generate profit for themselves. If you’re not protected, it can cost you in all kinds of ways. It can lead to degraded system performance and regulatory risks, and leaves an attacker with an open door to further exploit your network.
In this eBook you’ll learn about who these criminals are targeting and how you can protect your network from a significant threat.
"Malicious cryptomining lets cybercriminals profit at your organization’s expense. No industry is safe from malicious cryptomining - a browser or software-based threat that enables attackers to secretly use an organization's computing power to mine digital currency. This fast-growing threat can lead to degraded system performance, soaring electricity usage, regulatory problems, and vulnerability to future attacks.
View our infographic to find out who they’re targeting and how to protect your network.
"Malicious cryptomining is a browser or software-based threat that enables attackers to secretly use an organization's computing power to mine digital currency. Why should you care? Cryptomining is the fastest-growing threat today, and cryptomining in your environment means you are vulnerable to other attacks. Malicious cryptomining also leads to hidden costs to your organization from stolen computing resources.

Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.
Artificial intelligence (AI), including machine learning and deep learning, is set to become one of the most transformational technologies in the history of the world, affecting most aspects of our lives whether we’re conscious of it or not. The application of these technologies will likely reshape how people work, study, travel, govern, consume and pursue leisure activities.
Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.
2017 and 2018 were not easy years to be a CIO or CISO, and 2019 isn’t showing any signs of being easier. With so many career-ending-level data breaches in 2017 (e.g., Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, to name a few) and with the stronger regulatory requirements worldwide, CIOs/CISOs have a corporate responsibility to rethink their approach to data security. Regulatory compliance aside, companies have a responsibility to their customers and shareholders to protect data, and minimize its exposure not only to external attackers but also to employees. The most common method of data breach in 2017 was a phishing email sent to a company’s internal employees (See 2017 Data Breach Investigation Report), This makes employees unwillingly complicit in the data breach. Over 80% of successful cyberattacks have a critical human element that enabled them. The average employee who opens the innocent-looking attachment or link, is unintentionally jeopardizing a company’s data. While there is no 100% protection, th
2017 war kein einfaches Jahr für einen CIO / CISO, und auch 2018 gibt es derzeit keine Anzeichen dafür, dass es einfacher wird. Bei so vielen Datenverstößen, die sogar Karrieren beendeten, allein im Jahr 2017 (Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, um nur einige zu nennen) und mit weltweit verschärften regulatorischen Anforderungen haben CIOs / CISOs die unternehmerische Verantwortung, ihren Ansatz zur Datensicherheit zu überdenken.
Abgesehen von der Einhaltung gesetzlicher Vorschriften sind Unternehmen gegenüber ihren Kunden und Aktionären verp?ichtet, Daten zu schützen und ihre Gefährdung nicht nur gegenüber externen Angreifern, sondern auch gegenüber Mitarbeitern zu minimieren. Die im Jahr 2017 am häu?gsten genutzte Methode für Datendiebstahl war das Phishing, welches sich an interne Mitarbeiter von Unternehmen richtete (siehe Report zur Untersuchung von Datenverstößen im Jahr 2017). Damit wurden diese Mitarbeiter unwissentlich mitschuldig an der Datenverletzung: Über 80% der erfolgreichen Cyber-An

"Healthcare organizations have significantly more to consider than the average business when it comes to network and device security. Concern over code modification, key compromise, password-based vulnerabilities and man-in-the-middle attacks have caused hospital CIOs and CISOs to rethink their security strategies and investments. The threat to these devices has even been assigned its own term: medjacking, a shortened form of “medical device hijacking.”
