In this Akamai brief, we reveal the hidden burden bots and scrapers place on your website. You will know what bots and site scrapers are used for, and why blocking bot traffic is not the best solution.
Learn about the origins, tactics, types, and targets of cyber- attacks and emerging threats and trends from post-attack analysis and intelligence by cybersecurity and DDoS mitigation experts. Includes quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year trends, plus spotlights on recent DDoS and web application attacks and review of the past quarter’s hot-topic issues in cybersecurity.
Reports of cyberattacks now dominate the headlines. And while most high-profile attacks—including the major breaches at JP Morgan, Anthem and Slack—originated outside of the victimized organizations, theft and misuse of data by privileged users is on the rise.
In fact, 69% of enterprise security professionals said they have experienced the theft or corruption of company information at the hands of trusted insiders.1 There are also cases where a company’s third-party contractors, vendors or partners have been responsible for network breaches, either through malicious or inadvertent behavior.
The digital economy is transforming the financial services sector. The pace of innovation is accelerating, customers have higher expectations than ever, and new competitors are emerging from nontraditional markets. At the same time, financial services has long been a favorite target of cyber attackers, and despite firms’ best efforts, cybersecurity threats are rising and attacks are more successful than ever. Financial services firms need a more effective, adaptable approach to detecting and stopping cyberthreats.

Cybercriminals can be goal-driven and patient, and they often have a singular focus, plenty of time and access to vast, modern technical resources. Both organized and forum-based criminals are working constantly to find innovative and efficient ways to steal information and money with the lowest risk to their personal freedom. If we wish to stay “one step ahead” of the threats detailed in this report, awareness of online criminal threats, techniques and markets is our best defense.
Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
Ponemon Institute is pleased to present the results of Uncovering the Risks of SAP Cyber Breaches sponsored by Onapsis. The purpose of this study is to understand the threat of an SAP cyber breach and how companies are managing the risk of information theft, modification of data and disruption of business processes.
Reviewing a year of serious data breaches, major attacks and new vulnerabilities.
The IBM X-Force 2016 Cyber Security Intelligence Index offers a high-level overview of the major threats to businesses worldwide in 2015.

This paper is organized into sections describing the importance of IT infrastructure security and presents essential criteria IT leaders should use to identify end-to-end server security.
1. Trust and the Modern IT Infrastructure Why you should be concerned about server security (or the lack thereof).
2. End-to-end Server Security How Dell EMC defines end-to-end server security. In this section, we also provide crucial characteristics business and IT leaders can use to classify prospective server vendors.
3. Key Security Criteria for the Modern IT Infrastructure The security questions every IT leader should ask of their server vendor before embarking on an IT transformation.
