Inside the Front Lines of Cyber Defense

Alert Logic

A Security Operations Center (SOC) provides proactive threat monitoring, threat detection, and advice to stop threats quickly. But you may be surprised at what goes on behind the scenes to keep you safe.  Hear first-hand how our SOC team works tirelessly to thwart attackers — from the analysts themselves. We’ll also discuss Alert Logic’s new cybersecurity report which shows how broad, continuous assaults of massive scale dominate today’s attacks.

Information security has evolved from addressing minor and harmless security breaches to managing those with a huge impact on organizations’ economic growth. This paper investigates the evolution of information security; where it came from, where it is today and the direction in which it is moving. It is argued that information security is not about looking at the past in anger of an attack once faced; neither is it about looking at the present in fear of being attacked; nor about looking at the future with uncertainty about what might befall us. The message is that organizations and individuals must be alert at all times. Research conducted for this paper explored literature on past security issues to set the scene. This is followed by the assessment and analysis of information security publications in conjunction with surveys conducted in industry. Results obtained are compared and analyzed, enabling the development of a comprehensive view regarding the current status of the information security landscape. Furthermore, this paper also highlights critical information security issues that are being overlooked or not being addressed by research efforts currently undertaken. New research efforts are required that minimize the gap between regulatory issues and technical implementations.

5 Ways to Leverage Management Data to Improve Data Security

Data security is a constant challenge for most organizations. The average ransomware attack costs a company $5 million, and it takes organizations an average of 191 days to identify data breaches. However, only 25% of organizations today have a dedicated security department in IT (source: CSOOnline). View this on-demand webinar to learn 5 simple ways to leverage your existing management tools and data to improve your IT security, detecting breaches and compromised systems faster and more effectively without having to invest in new tools.

How memcached reflection threatens IT security

Link11

2018 is the year of high volume DDoS attacks. Since the emergence of the new attack vector memcached reflection in February, new bandwidth records have been set. Companies worldwide suddenly found themselves exposed to a new DDoS risk. In a webinar, the Link11 IT security experts Karsten Desler and Aatish Pattni explain how to assess the threats. Today's global IT infrastructures face a DDoS threat that has never existed before with such massive bandwidths. This issue relates to attack vectors, which can hit companies with a really destructive attack volume due to enormous amplification factors. The largest possible 'amplification reflection vector' to date has been detected in memcached reflection attacks. Cyber criminals can theoretically use the vector to increase their attacks by a factor of 50,000.
