Managing the Insider Threat—Why Visibility Is Critical

ObserveI

Only with full visibility into employee or third-party activity across a company network can even the earliest indicators of an insider threat be detected. By monitoring both user and file activity, security and compliance professionals can be alerted to risky, out-of-policy activities and any unexplained changes in user behavior in real-time; successfully stopping and investigating any activity before it becomes a full-blown breach. Research from The Ponemon Institute shows that Financial Services organizations face the highest penalty costs of any other industry ($12.05 million annually) when they experience an insider-led incident, though they are closely followed by the Energy & Utilities and Retail sector. This cost alone is a very concrete reason to address what otherwise might seem to be an invisible problem.

Trojans are a very sophisticated type of malware and their use by cybercriminals to perform widespread eFraud is now well established. It has become apparent that cybercriminals are spending a considerable amount of time and effort to maintain control of the computers that they have infected. Blog articles and reports on parts of such malware distribution infrastructures are published daily. However, it is more challenging for targeted organisations to create 'the big picture' of how the components work together to pose a considerably greater threat.

Another Bucket Bites the Dust... Simplifying AWS Cybersecurity

Alert Logic

With the rapid rise of web application attacks, which is the number one source of data breaches, securing cloud-based web applications is a challenge. In order to fully protect your web applications in the cloud, it is important to know the risks, select the right security tool, and understand your role in the shared responsibility for security. Securing your AWS workload can mean many different things, ranging from locking down your environment via the AWS best practices list, to completely outsourcing the security management and responsibility to another company. While every company’s security journey is different, everyone can agree that the need to monitor and improve security posture is becoming increasingly important.

Infocyte

Reports of network intrusions have spiked in recent years resulting in millions in financial loses, theft of intellectual property, and exposure of customer information. The groups responsible for these attacks are organized and can persist in your organization’s systems and endpoints without detection for 6 months on average – sometimes years.

Adopting a Purpose-Built Approach to Linux Security

Carbon Black

Cloud is the dominant computing trend of our time, and Linux is the power behind it. As enterprises continue to adopt more cloud native infrastructure, we see accelerated adoption of Linux in the form of both migrations of existing infrastructure and greenfield application deployment. Unfortunately the approach to securing this growing fleet of production servers has not evolved at the same pace.

Focus on Open Source Compliance and Security During Legal TransactionsEnable Ginger

Data points to the fact that companies have difficulty managing third-party open source within their software code bases, leading to compliance, IP, and security risk. These risks are often amplified in legal transactions and can impact “go”/”no go” decisions if not addressed throughout the legal process. Join Leon Schwartz, Ass
