The traditional approach to cybersecurity has been to use a prevention-centric strategy focused on blocking attacks. While prevention-centric approaches do stop many threats, many of today’s advanced and motivated threat actors are circumventing these defences with creative, stealthy, targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected for significant periods of time.

No one in today’s highly connected world is exempt from security threats like phishing, ransomware, or denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Certainly not Google. Google operates seven services with more than one billion active users each (including Google Search, YouTube, Maps, and Gmail). We see every type of attack, bad software, and bad actors—multiple times a day—and we’re proud of what our people, processes, and technology do to stop them. Google has published more than 160 academic research papers on computer security, privacy, and abuse prevention and has privately warned other software companies of weaknesses discovered in their systems. Within Google, we enforce a zero-trust security model, which monitors every device on the internal network.

This year’s Cyber Intrusion Services Casebook focuses on in-depth digital forensics, incident response (IR) and remediation services performed on behalf of actual CrowdStrike clients. Real-life examples drawn from notable CrowdStrike Services IR engagements in 2016 — including the now-infamous hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) —are covered with an emphasis on best practices organizations can follow to identify and eject attackers before a devastating breach occurs. Download this report to learn: • How CrowdStrike’s Falcon OverWatch and professional services teams discovered and attributed the DNC intrusion to nation-state threat actors FANCY BEAR and COZY BEAR • The gaps in security processes and planning that your organization can address now to stop the next breach • The specific tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) a range of nation-state and eCrime adversaries used to penetrate their victims’ defenses, and how they attempted to cover their tracks

In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.

An interactive white paper describing how to get smart about insider threat prevention - including how to guard against privileged user breaches, stop data breaches before they take hold, and take advantage of global threat intelligence and third-party collaboration. Security breaches are all over the news, and it can be easy to think that all the enemies are outside your organization. But the harsh reality is that more than half of all attacks are caused by either malicious insiders or inadvertent actors.1 In other words, the attacks are instigated by people you’d be likely to trust. And the threats can result in significant financial or reputational losses.

Securing your infrastructure, your customer interactions and protecting your data are critical to preserving your reputation and your bottom line. Many cyber attacks remain undetected for up to eight months1 and can cost an organization an average of 11 million USD.2 Today’s cyber actors are becoming more sophisticated, agile and capable of getting past any network security. Organizations must evolve, replacing traditional defensive security strategies with a proactive, intelligence-driven offense to prevent and disrupt these threats. IBM® i2® Enterprise Insight Analysis is a next generation intelligence solution that enables organizations to incorporate cyber threat hunting into their security strategy and turn their defense into a proactive offense.It helps organizations uncover critical insights about their threats and threat actors so they can mitigate and counter more threats with a combination of multi-dimensional visualte analysis capabilities

The SecureWorks® Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) research team analyzes security threats and helps organizations protect their systems. During May and June 2017, CTU™ researchers identified lessons learned and observed notable developments in threat behaviors, the global threat landscape, and security trends: • The global WCry and NotPetya campaigns reinforced the need for a layered approach to security. • Attacks used obfuscated malicious files and scripts to bypass filtering and deliver malware. • A Chinese threat group has had repeated success using compromised websites to attack targeted organizations. • Threat actors have been stealing intellectual property from Japanese enterprises.

There are no flawless software systems or applications. When flaws result in security vulnerabilities, threat actors exploit them to compromise those systems and applications and, by extension, the endpoints on which they reside. Although software vendors issue vulnerability patches to remediate those flaws, many organizations do not apply all available patches to their production environments.

IT environments have become much more vulnerable as enterprise mobility, cloud services and “bring-your-own-everything” have broken down the defensible perimeter and added layers of complexity to securing the enterprise. At the same time, the nature of cyber threats has changed dramatically. Threat actors are well organized and well funded, and many of them are known to be supported by nation states. They have sophisticated technical skills which allow these actors to create custom malware for very specific targets, and they are relentless in pursuit of their objectives. Moreover, almost anyone with a malicious intent can purchase malware and rent botnets on the Dark Web, lowering the bar for criminal entities, nation states, and terrorists to use cyber as a weapon of choice towards their intended purpose.

Among the countless changes in Windows 10 Microsoft has provided IT organizations more visibility into auditable actions on Windows 10 machines and the resulting events in the Security Log. Understanding these enhancements is important because we need every edge we can get to detect endpoint intrusions. Threat actors use a sophisticated mix of phishing, social engineering, and malware to attempt to compromise any user within an organization. A seemingly benign order request sent to a salesperson or a benefits summary to someone in HR can contain attachments infected with malware. Once such payloads are in, the goal is to determine how to leverage current users and other accounts on the compromised machine to access valuable and sensitive data, as well as how to spread out within the organization and repeat the process.

In this white paper, we examine notable trends and events in physical security from 2014 and assess what security professionals should expect in 2015. 2014 was truly an unpredictable year in the physical security and executive protection worlds, as large scale events targeted for disruption were executed relatively smoothly, while unforeseen developments in Ukraine and the Ebola outbreak caught many off guard. Looking ahead to 2015, we predict that local issues will continue to gain global importance, threat actors and activists will find new ways to utilize social media to spread their messages, and the lines between physical and digital threats will continue to converge. We also highlight ongoing developments in France, Mexico, Ukraine, and Germany.
