March 14, 2023

How to Prepare For & Respond to Ransomware
Targeted intrusions for gaining long-term access and collecting data about industrial control systems (ICS) are becoming much more frequent. Many of these attacks are about understanding the network and preparing for future activities without causing any immediate impact. The most recent Dragos Year in Review6 report shows that the ransomware groups Lockbit 2.0 and Conti were responsible for more than half of the observed ransomware attacks in industrial environments in 2021, and that these instances resulted in actions on objectives. These attacks have been observed in almost every industrial vertical, primarily targeting small to medium-sized organizations in manufacturing.

Guide to Cloud Security Posture Management Tools

whitePaper | June 16, 2023

It is much more difficult to achieve centralized visibility as well as consistently enforce policies and compliance rules within a multi-cloud environment. It’s also more complicated to detect threats and fix vulnerabilities quickly due to the sheer complexity of threats across distributed, multilayered architectures. You can address these challenges, though—and you need to, if you want to take advantage of multi-cloud architecture without compromising on security.
