DDoS attacks have long been known as the main form of cyber attack risk. “The Financial Inspection Manual” revised by the Japanese government’s Financial Services Agency in April 2015, identifies the risk of "DDoS attacks", and the need to take countermeasures is strongly emphasized. Other government agencies also acknowledge the frequency and severity of DDoS attacks. However, a clear method to completely prevent DDoS attacks has not been established yet. Why is that? What are the best measures that companies can take at the present time?

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

For decades, the financial services industry has endured constant change
and uncertainty, from the depths of a financial crisis to widespread
regulation overhauls. With the advent of more advanced cybersecurity
threats, the industry has responded with rapid digital transformation to
remain competitive while also pushing the envelope. Today, managing
and mitigating cyber-related risks not only draws government scrutiny, but
increased consumer scrutiny as well, with longstanding brand reputations
anchored to institutions’ ability to protect its most sensitive data. In a
recent survey of Americans, financial information was considered by
consumers to be their most valuable personal information, worth even
more than personal or family photos and videos. For consumers, failing
to protect their data is a grave violation of trust, to the point where 72%
would consider leaving their current financial institution if their sensitive
information was taken hostage by ransomware.1
Not only does the

MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary
Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes.
Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.
Research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by Oracle,
provides answers. The results show that a proactive security strategy backed by a fully
engaged C-suite and board of directors reduced the growth of cyber-attacks and
breaches by 53% over comparable firms. These findings were compiled from responses
by 300 firms, across multiple industries, against a range of attack modes and over a
two-year period from February 2014 to January 2016.
The lessons are clear. As cyber-attackers elevate their game, the response must be an
enterprise solution. Only C-suites and boards of directors marshal the authority and
resources to support a truly enterprise-wide approach. In sum, proactive cyber-security
strategies, supported by senior management, can cut vulnerability to cyber-attack in half.

Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.

Cybersecurity is top of mind for companies with workers using mobile computing devices. Report identifies top field service security risks, why security policies are critical, and includes a security checklist.
The included Framework for Inquiry is a non-prescriptive exercise that can help boards and management craft a replicable reporting template for reviewing risk levels, measuring operational effectiveness, and prioritizing initiatives over time.
Reports of cyberattacks now dominate the headlines. And while most high-profile attacks—including the major breaches at JP Morgan, Anthem and Slack—originated outside of the victimized organizations, theft and misuse of data by privileged users is on the rise.
In fact, 69% of enterprise security professionals said they have experienced the theft or corruption of company information at the hands of trusted insiders.1 There are also cases where a company’s third-party contractors, vendors or partners have been responsible for network breaches, either through malicious or inadvertent behavior.
CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) creates software that fuels transformation for companies and enables them to seize the opportunities of the application economy.
Software is at the heart of every business, in every industry. From planning to development to management and security, CA is working with companies worldwide to change the way we live, transact and communicate—across mobile, private and public cloud, distributed and mainframe environments.
Privileged credentials have served as a major attack vector in the successful execution of many breaches. Protecting privileged access is an imperative to successfully defend an organization from a breach and is a core requirement of multiple compliance regimes.
CA Privileged Access Management helps drive IT security and compliance risk reduction and improves operational efficiency by enabling privileged access defense in depth—providing broad and consistent protection of sensitive administrative credentials, management of privileged identity access and control of administrator activity.
Intrusion Detection Systems have ceased to live up to their name and have lost their ability to spot today’s sophisticated intrusions.
Consequently, cyber attackers are taking advantage of it by launching more evasive and strategic threats that spread rapidly within networks. And security teams are left without the proper tools or insight to identify intrusions that pose the biggest risk.
Covert communications are key enablers of cyber attacks that allow remote humans to patiently manage and direct their attacks undetected. Attackers choose these vehicles specifically for their ability to evade signatures, malware sandboxes and reputation lists.
To learn how Vectra empowers security teams to automatically pinpoint active cyber attacks as they’re happening, correlate threats with the hosts that are under attack, prioritize attacks that pose the greatest business risk, and quickly prevent or mitigate loss, register to get the white paper Detecting Covert Communications.

Business-critical applications running on SAP continue to be the best “economics” for cyberattackers as these systems house the most critical assets and support the most mission-critical business process. They are also the highest cost blind spot for many Chief Information Security O?cers (CISOs), as their current security products do not include applications running on SAP. A recent Ponemon Institute independent research report states that 65% of survey respondents SAP systems have been breached once or more in the past two years.
To help organization’s better understand the business impact of potential SAP cyberattacks, Onapsis offers a complimentary Business Risk Illustration (BRI) service. This service frames the business risk of an SAP cyberattack by examining an organization’s SAP landscape for vulnerabilities and ties them to the economic impact of a potential cyberattack.
