Cybersecurity considerations for electrical distribution systems

September 12, 2019

Every day, cyber attacks against government and commercial computer networks number in the millions. According to U.S. Cyber Command, Pentagon systems are probed 250,000 times per hour. Similar attacks are becoming more prevalent on other kinds of information-based smart networks as well, such as those that operate buildings and utility systems. Whether the objective is to steal intellectual property or halt operations, the tools and the techniques used for unauthorized network access are increasingly sophisticated.

AI Security White Paper

whitePaper | January 23, 2020

With the accumulation of big data, dramatic improvements in computing power, and continuous innovation in Machine Learning (ML) methods, Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies such as image recognition, voice recognition, and natural language processing have become ubiquitous. Meanwhile, AI poses a significant impact on computer security: on the one hand, AI can be used to build defensive systems such as malware and network attack detection; on the other hand, AI might be exploited to launch more effective attacks.

Security Operations Maturity Model

whitePaper | February 20, 2020

As the threat landscape continues to evolve, your cybersecurity efforts must follow suit. With your security operations center (SOC) at the core of your offense against threats, you must ensure that it can handle anything that comes its way. To be effective, you need to mature your SOC to stop threats early — before damage occurs. Whether your SOC is a virtual team of two to three or a 24x7 operation, maturing your security operations capabilities will help you achieve a faster mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) to cyberthreats. This white paper explores LogRhythm’s Security Operations Maturity Model (SOMM), which explains how to measure the effectiveness of your security operations. Through the model, you can learn how to mature your security operations capabilities, improving your resilience to cyberthreats.

Warring State - China's cybersecurity strategy

whitePaper | December 1, 2019

Cyberspace and information technology have enabled the economic, political, and cultural inte - gration of the United States and China. However, interdependence creates costs as well as benefits. Increased interconnection has also contributed to major obstacles in the bilateral relationship, generating mutual distrust of incentives, actions, and norms in cyberspace. Information technology raises new challenges for states by allowing actors to exploit networks, conduct cyber espionage, or compromise national security with greater ease.

VIRSEC ® SECURITY PLATFORM

whitePaper | December 10, 2019

Advanced application attacks that weaponize at runtime (WRT) are increasingly putting businesses at risk. These attacks challenge application security by leveraging fileless malware, memory corruption and uncommon vulnerabilities to evade traditional security solutions. WRTs manipulate legitimate processes and enable stealthy execution of malicious code, resulting in data breaches, damaged infrastructure, and financial losses.
