Evolving to Next-Generation Security Orchestration and Visibility
Because traditional tools are not helping in detecting threats or reducing noise, the need of the hour is an unified threat dashboard, says Vishak Raman, director of security business for India and SAARC at Cisco. "You need to dipstick with your organization's IoCs and mash it up with global threat intelligence, and also look at the different attack vectors," Raman in an interview with Information Security Media Group. "I see email; I see web. How do I connect the dots? Today, organizations don't have a single console to mash those up." Raman suggests that organizations consider deploying next-generation networks and visibility tools. "That's something which is important for organizations to improve their visibility. It starts with reviewing very basic segmentation policy and implementing 'first line of defense' tools that can scale, including for cloud security platforms." In this interview with Information Security Media Group (see edited transcript below), Raman also discusses: Whether effective threat-hunting capabilities be achieved using existing tools.

A global leader in quantum computing software, Strangeworks, announced its collaboration with the largest integrated, stand-alone quantum computing company in the world, Quantinuum. Quantinuum offers various vertically integrated solutions, such as comprehensive, hardware-agnostic quantum software and the highest-performing quantum computer. This collaboration aims at implementing quantum-enhanced cryptographic keys, Quantum Origin, and Quantinuuminto the Strangeworks ecosystem. As the world's first commercial product to generate cryptographic keys using quantum computers, Quantum Origin will become an essential ecosystem component. It will also provide seamless access to superior cryptographic keys to its users to help protect them against current security threats. "It's fitting that Strangeworks would expand its industry-leading platform to include quantum technology to help defend against today's cyber threats,We are excited to integrate Quantum Origin to generate the strongest cryptographic keys for Strangeworks and their customers, based on verifiable quantum randomness." Duncan Jones, Head of Cybersecurity at Quantinuum and Cambridge Quantum Strangeworks, as the world's leading Quantum Service Provider™, is constantly improving to provide its users with the latest quantum-based security offerings through the ecosystem. It is crucial to enable the latest in cybersecurity technology, such as the variety of quantum systems available and the data sharing with its users. Once they implement Quantum Origin, they will become the first to do it. "We're excited to welcome Quantinuum into the Quantum Syndicate. Expanding our managed quantum services to encompass cyber security is a natural addition to our enterprise offerings," said William Hurley, founder and CEO of Strangeworks. "The integration of Quantum Origin enables enterprises around the world with a seamless path to quantum-generated cryptographic keys to protect their sensitive data."

BeachFleischman and Silent Sector announce their agreement to provide Arizona business owners with cybersecurity services

prnewswire | January 13, 2021

BeachFleischman PC, Arizona's biggest privately claimed CPA firm, declares it has gone into a concurrence with the Phoenix-based network safety firm, Silent Sector, to sell and market Silent Sector's online protection administrations to its customers all through Arizona and cross country. The arrangement grows the current cooperation between the two firms and joins the qualities of both to shield mid-market and arising organizations from digital assaults. The declaration is essential for BeachFleischman's development intends to furnish organizations with extended vital and operational warning arrangements past customary bookkeeping, examining, and charge administrations.

SparkCognition and Siemens to Co-Develop AI-driven Cybersecurity System

SparkCognition | June 15, 2020

SparkCognition and Siemens today announced a new collaboration on a cybersecurity system, DeepArmor Industrial, fortified by Siemens. Designed to protect endpoint, or remote, operational technology (OT) assets across the energy value chain by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to monitor and detect cyberattacks. Cyberattacks on the energy industry are on the rise in volume and in sophistication, and they increasingly threaten companies' physical safety and security. SparkCognition and Siemens today announced a new collaboration on a cybersecurity system, DeepArmor Industrial, fortified by Siemens, which is designed to protect endpoint, or remote, operational technology (OT) assets across the energy value chain by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to monitor and detect cyberattacks. The innovative AI-driven system will deliver next-generation antivirus, threat detection, application control, and zero-day attack prevention to endpoint power generation, oil and gas, and transmission and distribution assets, which for the first time brings fleet level cybersecurity monitoring and protection capabilities to the energy industry. Cyberattacks on the energy industry are on the rise in volume and in sophistication, and they increasingly threaten companies' physical safety and security, business operations, and the critical infrastructure that powers communities throughout the world," said Leo Simonovich, Head of Industrial Cybersecurity at Siemens. "Many energy companies with remote, endpoint assets have struggled to defend their environment because they either lacked the visibility to detect, or the agility to mitigate, cyberattacks that threaten operational technologies. Read more: CYBERATTACKS ON CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURES WITNESS SHARP RISE DURING THE PANDEMIC Together with Siemens, we are excited to bring next-generation endpoint protection that is specifically designed to increase the cyber resilience of OT networks and prevent advanced threat actors from impacting critical infrastructure. ~ SparkCognition This new partnership combines Siemens' cybersecurity expertise in securing operational technology with SparkCognition's expertise in artificial intelligence to deliver the energy industry's first solution capable of detecting and protecting remote assets against cyberattacks. Through our extensive work with the energy industry, we've seen the pain points and challenges the industry is facing right now," said Sridhar Sudarsan, Chief Technology Officer at SparkCognition. "The industry needs security solutions that can both operate autonomously and are designed with the modern industrial environment in mind. The threat of mega cyberattacks targeting critical infrastructure is worsening, according to a joint study conducted by the Ponemon Institute and Siemens that surveyed global energy industry executives on a wide range of threats, vulnerabilities, and strategies required to protect oil and gas assets. The study found that 67 percent of respondents believe the risk level to industrial control systems over the past few years has substantially increased because of cyber threats. The study also found that 61 percent of respondents said their organization's industrial control systems protection and security was not adequate. Cyberattacks on the energy industry are on the rise in volume and in sophistication, and they increasingly threaten companies' physical safety and security, business operations. OT assets operating in the field today are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks as much of the energy industry's critical infrastructure was engineered before the widespread digitization of industrial control systems. This leaves portions - or entire fleets - without the ability to be patched or cost effectively updated with new security defenses. With award-winning machine learning technology, a multinational footprint, and expert teams focused on defense, IIoT, and finance, SparkCognition builds artificial intelligence systems to advance the most important interests of society. Our customers are trusted with protecting and advancing lives, infrastructure, and financial systems across the globe. Siemens Gas and Power GmbH & Co. KG is the global energy business of the Siemens group, which has been working with its customers on solutions for the evolving demands of industry and society for more than 150 years. With planned stock listing, Siemens' energy business will operate independently as Siemens Energy in the future. It will offer broad expertise across the entire energy value chain, along with a comprehensive portfolio for utilities, independent power producers, transmission system operators, the oil and gas industry, and other energy-intensive industries.
