Recent changes in hacking combined with the emergence of the Internet of Everything have profoundly changed how we protect our systems, driving us to think about a new approach to cybersecurity. In this paper, learn about the challenges that created the need for a new threat-centric security model spanning the full attack continuum: before, during and after an attack.
The Cisco 2015 Annual Security Report, which presents the research, insights, and perspectives provided by Cisco Security Research and other security experts within Cisco, explores the ongoing race between attackers and defenders, and how users are becoming ever-weaker links in the security chain.

Protecting students from the millions of sites that house pornography, adult chat rooms, violence & hacking can provide not just a safe surfing atmosphere to minors in schools and libraries, but also qualify the institutions for federal E-rate funding through compliance with CIPA - the Children's Internet Protection Act.
Arm yourself against the powerful cyberweapons and
methods cyberattackers are using to compromise electrical
grids, manufacturing, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, and
other critical infrastructure industries.
Today, a range of diverse cyber-adversaries — including nation-states, cybercriminals, competitors, hacktivists, and insiders/contractors — pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
The business impact can include costly production downtime, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate secrets such as sensitive information about formulas and proprietary manufacturing processes.
The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives and IT/OT convergence to support the business — removing any “air-gaps” that may have existed in the past.
To help security and operations teams stay ahead of the latest ICS/SCADA threats, CyberX — the industrial cybersecurity company founded by military cyber experts with nation-state experience securing critical infrastructure — has partnered with SANS to create educational content about emerging ICS threat vectors and
Fraud preventative solutions are designed to avert new accounts fraud before it occurs. The strategic advantage of fraud prevention therefore lies in the ability avoid losses to institutions and consumers.

Many security-minded organizations utilize code signing to provide an additional layer of security and authenticity for their software and files. Code signing is carried out using a type of digital certificate known as a code-signing certificate. The process of code signing validates the authenticity of legitimate software by confirming that an application is from the organization who signed it. While code-signing certificates can offer more security, they can also live an unintended secret life providing cover for attack groups, such as the Suckfly APT group.
In late 2015, Symantec identified suspicious activity involving a hacking tool used in a malicious way against one of our customers. Normally, this is considered a low-level alert, however, the hacktool had an unusual characteristic not typically seen with this type of file; it was signed with a valid code-signing certificate.

Information protection gets much attention these days. Many have realized that their data is a treasure, which not only should be treated properly, but should be protected as well. So a few dollars spent on defending against security threats now can reap millions in avoiding future losses due to hacking of your enterprise network.
The world set a new record for data breaches in 2016,
with more than 4.2 billion exposed records, shattering the former record of 1.1 billion in 2013. But if 2016 was bad, 2017 is shaping up to be even worse. In the first six months of 2017, there were 2,227 breaches reported, exposing over 6 billion records and putting untold numbers of accounts at risk. Out of all these stolen records, a large majority include usernames and passwords, which are leveraged in 81 percent of hacking-related breaches according to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. Faced with ever-growing concerns over application and data integrity, organizations must prioritize identity protection in their
security strategies. In fact, safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in 2017.

Netzwerke werden immer sicherer – gleichzeitig treten jedoch neue, getarnte Hacking-Methoden immer häufiger auf und sind
schwieriger zu erkennen. Unternehmen müssen den Schutz ihrer Netzwerke überdenken, da ausgeklügelte Verschleierungsmethoden
(Advanced Evasion Techniques), die Exploits und Malware vor der Erkennung durch Firewalls und Eindringschutzsysteme (IPS)
schützen, vermehrt Aufmerksamkeit erregen. Obwohl Verschleierungsmethoden ausführlich dokumentiert sind und zunehmend
in unabhängige Tests der Wirksamkeit von Sicherheitsmaßnahmen einfließen, ignorieren einige Anbieter von Sicherheitslösungen
systematisch deren Bedeutung und verharmlosen sogar die Bedrohung durch Verschleierungen als theoretisch.
The hacking community has shifted its effort toward a new frontier: the application layer. How are companies responding? Business Software Assurance – the capability to address the problem of application risk within an enterprise. This whitepaper provides an overview of the severity of the problem along with everything needed to develop Business Software Assurance in your organization.
An average of 30,000 new websites are identified as distributing malicious code to site visitors every day. According to a recent Spiceworks survey, IT professionals are relying mostly on software level security solutions. Download this whitepaper to learn how HP Elitebooks block and outsmart security threats.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) have been central to network security discussions in the past few years, with many organizations implementing new solutions to protect themselves from this determined type of malware. Yet, cybercriminals continue to be effective in penetrating the network defenses of even the strongest security systems, including some very high-profile enterprises. One of the dirty little secret weapons hackers use to bypass security systems and penetrate even the most locked-down networks are advanced evasion techniques (AETs). While AETs are not a secret among the hacking community—where they are well known and have been in widespread use for several years—there are misunderstandings, misinterpretation, and ineffective safeguards in use by the security experts charged with blocking AETs.
