The massive pro-Trump demonstrations that saw large crowds riot and then occupy the U.S. Capitol building in Washington pose a significant potential cybersecurity threat as protesters appear to have gained access to at least one lawmaker's office, along with computer systems and other devices, some experts say.
This report details seven case studies of attacks that were intercepted and neutralized by cyber defense AI, including insider threat, ransomware, and IoT attacks.
While all threat scenarios were distinct, some fast-moving and others slow and stealthy, in all cases the subtle indicators of suspicious activity were...
To protect today's dynamic workforce, security teams must be equipped to discern when and how a trusted account has been leveraged for nefarious purposes. This requires more than just an understanding of 'good' vs 'bad' - it requires an 'immune system' approach to security that is not only adaptive, but also grounded...
The FBI is warning of a rise in "swatting attacks," which see hackers use compromised email accounts to access poorly-secured home smart devices that are equipped with cameras and voice capabilities to make hoax calls to emergency services.
Identity management will be at the forefront of securing remote work in the coming year. Jason Bohrer, new leader of the Secure Technology Alliance and the U.S. Payments Forum, describes key initiatives as he steps into this role.
In the wake of the SolarWinds breach, NIST's Ron Ross has turned his attention to systems security engineering - and the reality that the adversaries are exploiting it to their advantage better than the defenders are. This disparity, Ross says, has to change.
Secure Code Warrior's Director of the Americas, Stephen Allor, hosts a webinar with Russ Wolfe of Capital One, in which they discuss the cybersecurity landscape in the BFSI sector.
They reveal why financial institutions are the new innovators when it comes to rolling out new initiatives, tools and training in the...
An evolving workplace, greater reliance on IoT and the cloud, and already we have seen the new face of supply chain attacks. This is the backdrop for 2021, and Imperva's Brian Anderson offers insights into the cyber-attack outlook.
The Zero Trust security model created by Forrester has become a mainstay of security approaches. But traditional Zero Trust controls largely overlook unmanaged and IoT devices, leaving the enterprise at risk.
Read this white paper and learn:
How existing Zero Trust security tools are not designed for unmanaged...
2020 was the year of mass migration to multi-cloud environments, which paves the way for 2021 and a further explosion on microservices and severless cloud computing. Peter Klimek of Imperva discusses how cybercriminals are likely to respond - and how to anticipate them.
The convergence of IoT and OT provides a unique opportunity for
a stronger and more resilient infrastructure, whilst
increasing flexibility and responsiveness to new situations.
This needs to be well-managed to ensure the systems are
robust and the risks fully managed, and to maintain an
equivalent level of...
A hacking group behind an Android spyware variant has recently added fresh capabilities that include the ability to snoop on private chats on Skype, Instagram and WhatsApp, according to ReversingLabs. This APT group, believed to be tied to Iran, has recently been sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department.
You’re securing more endpoints than ever across the largest attack surface ever. Enter: IoT devices and the risks they bring. But they also bring new business benefits. Mitchell Bezzina of Palo Alto Networks explores risks, benefits and new steps to ensure IoT security.
In this one-pager Bezzina...
President Donald Trump on Friday signed into law the Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2020, the first U.S. federal law addressing IoT security. The act requires federal agencies to only procure devices that meet minimum cybersecurity standards.
A critical component within millions of consumer and enterprise IoT devices has dangerous software flaws. New research from Forescout Technologies into open-source TCP-IP stacks shows millions of devices from 150 vendors are likely vulnerable.
