Analysis: Firms Prioritize Two Things for Cybersecurity
Analysis: Firms Prioritize Two Things for Cybersecurity. Cybersecurity companies in Australia have worked with different companies to focus on protecting their clients’ businesses and complying with regulations, based on a recent analysis. The Australian Cyber Emergency Response Team (AusCERT) studied how the industry landscape for online security has changed in recent years. It discovered a growing trend among companies’ senior management, which has begun to acknowledge the need for tighter online security. Their actions come at the right time due to the growing number of threats, such as identity theft, malware, and phishing attacks. Top Priorities. New regulations have led most businesses in the country to adopt stricter cyber security for their operations. An example involves the Notifiable Data Breaches Act that was launched in 2017. Australian companies need to report any instance of data breaches to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner and inform affected individuals if the incident compromises their personal information.

When you think of “cyber attacks,” what comes to mind? If you’re like a lot of people, you imagine hackers  attacking big corporations and governments. The reality is that one of the most common forms of cybercrime is when you respond and fill out information to phishing emails. Employees email is usually one of the biggest weaknesses for a company to overcome. Phishing attacks are so simple that anyone with an email address can try it. This is why these attacks are so dangerous and are on the rise and impacting lots of American businesses. Inspired eLearning takes a look at this in more detail in the following infographic.

CyberProof Announces Partnership with Radiflow, a Leading Provider of Cyber Security Solutions for OT Systems & Industrial Networks

CyberProof | September 01, 2021

CyberProof Inc., a UST company, announced today that it will be adding Radiflow, a leading provider of cyber security solutions for industrial networks, to its partner network. The new partnership strengthens CyberProof's ability to provide comprehensive Managed Detection & Response (MDR) services for converged IT/OT systems and support the cyber security needs of Distributed Control Systems (DCS)/ICS and SCADA networks. CyberProof, ranked as a "Leader" in the Forrester Wave™ for Midsized Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) – uses its proprietary CyberProof Defense Center (CDC) platform to provide a single platform, through which security teams can detect and mitigate threats across both the IT and OT environments. As seen in several recent, high-profile breaches on Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), attackers often can compromise OT networks without being detected because organizations lack an updated inventory of OT assets, processes, and connections. Working with Radiflow allows CyberProof to discover previously unmapped assets in OT environments, maintain a centralized dynamic inventory, and help customers monitor and detect all traffic and communication within the OT network. CyberProof's CDC Platform is pre-integrated with Radiflow's iSID industrial threat detection system, enabling real-time visibility into changes to assets, ports, and protocols. This integration supports proactive, real-time monitoring across IT and OT environments with full transparency. It enables CyberProof to search for new and known vulnerabilities leveraging the broadest protocol coverage, providing visibility into all industrial network risk variables for OT, IoT & IIoT. "By working together with Radiflow, we provide a single view and control point for both IT and OT environments – including an integrated Security Operations Center (SOC)," said Tony Velleca, CEO at CyberProof. "We are able to combine Radiflow's unique technology together with CyberProof's Use Case Factory, a unique agile framework for continuously improving detection and response against relevant attack scenarios," Velleca added. "The partnership with CyberProof extends security monitoring and managed response into the OT space," said Ilan Barda, CEO at Radiflow. "By integrating Radiflow's solutions, CyberProof is now able to proactively detect and respond to threats in ICS/SCADA networks and lay out a risk mitigation plan for optimal OT security that meets each customer's needs and budget," Barda continued. About Radiflow Radiflow's solutions offer full visibility of what and who is threatening your network and where it stands in terms of risk and its potential impact. Radiflow's first OT BAS (breach-attack-simulation) solution uses a data-driven approach to combine the vulnerabilities in your network with the tactics of your adversaries. Radiflow's BAS engine automatically simulates hundreds of WHAT-IF scenarios facilitating ROI-based optimization of your cyber-security roadmap with multiple prioritization keys to fit the various needs of each enterprise. Once a plan is defined, clients receive clear tracking and reporting of the progress. Radiflow's solutions are recognized as strong IEC-62443 enablers.
