ESG research indicates that many security professionals feel like the malware threat landscape is getting worse. Why? Aside from targeted attacks conducted by cybercriminals and nation-states, hackers are getting more creative using ad networks, partner websites and mobile applications to attack organizations or steal personal data from customers. These threats emanate from outside the organization's network, driving the need for outside-in security. Strong outside-in security requires continuous monitoring, specific threat intelligence and a customer-centric view of risk.

What You Need to Know About the Cybersecurity Solarium Commission Report

Article | March 20, 2020

The Cybersecurity Solarium Commission's recently released report outlines a strategy to fundamentally reshape the U.S.’s approach to cybersecurity and prepare for resiliency and response before a major cyber incident occurs, not after. Unlike the original Solarium Commission, which operated in a classified environment, the Cybersecurity Solarium Commission chose to release its report publicly out of recognition that cybersecurity involves everyone. “In studying this issue,” begins the letter from Sen. Angus King and Rep. Mike Gallagher, the chairmen of the commission, “it is easy to descend into a morass of classification, acronyms, jargon, and obscure government organization charts. To avoid that, we tried something different: an unclassified report that we hope will be found readable by the very people who are affected by the very people who are affected by cyber insecurity – everyone. This report is also aimed squarely at action; it has numerous recommendations addressing organizational, policy, and technical issues, and we included an appendix with draft bills that Congress can rapidly act upon to put these ideas into practice and make America more secure.”
