As cybercriminals look for new ways to break through defenses, it’s vital that organizations have access to real-time operational intelligence across their applications, services, and security infrastructure. As Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) migrated applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS), it needed to expand security capacity for edge protection of its AWS VPCs. REI chose Splunk for security monitoring, historical analysis, and data visualization in real time, to help it investigate events and mitigate operational risks.

We are pleased to present the findings of The State of Malware Detection & Prevention sponsored by Cyphort. The study reveals the difficulty in preventing and detecting malware and advanced threats. The IT function also seems to lack the information and intelligence necessary to update senior executives on cybersecurity risks. We surveyed 597 IT and IT security practitioners in the U.S. who have responsibility for directing cybersecurity activities and/or investments within their organization. All respondents have a network-based malware detection tool or are familiar with this type of tool.
Where to invest next: Identifying the people, processes and technology you need for an effective cybersecurity strategy
Building your organization’s cybersecurity maturity doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time and thought to adequately assess all the factors that go into creating and implementing an effective security strategy, particularly what steps to take after you’ve made an initial investment in security.
This white paper, “Where to Invest Next: Guidance for Maturing Your Cyber Defenses,” offers practical advice on achieving the level of cyber defense maturity that’s right for your organization. Learn why developing a security program that takes into account your risk level and the current state of your security posture is critical. You’ll also see why ensuring that everyone in the organization, from the leadership to the rank-and-file, is working toward the goal of cyber maturity is crucial to your success.

How adopting a framework can optimize cybersecurity
Today’s threat landscape has created new challenges for security analysts and incident responders, as the number of alerts and their complexity have increased significantly. Organizations with small IT teams are overwhelmed, often lacking the time or resources to investigate every alert. Failing to do so means a high-risk threat might go unnoticed. This can result in a devastating breach, damaging an organization's finances and reputation.
This white paper discusses how CrowdStrike is solving these challenges, by implementing the MITRE ATT&CK™ Framework across multiple CrowdStrike processes and product features to help improve analyst’s productivity and prevent breaches. This provides many benefits, including time savings; adding advanced context to security alerts and information; and enabling a common, shared language. However, it also provides some hidden advantages, especially concerning cybersecurity.

Some approaches to information security simply won’t deliver the results required for effective governance. Addressing head-on the primary issue—risk—is the key to a successful cybersecuritystrategy. In this session, Doug Landoll, CEO of information security compliance consulting firm Lantego, discusses how to take a risk-first approach to addressing information security. Specific topics include:- How to define cybersecurity success; - Common approaches that fall short; - Risk-based cybersecurity strategy planning. Find out how a proactive approach to information security now can help your organization avoid compliance issues later.
Vulnerabilities in web applications are a major vector for cyber-crime. In large organizations, vulnerable web applications comprised 54% of all hacking breaches and led to 39% of compromised records, according to the 2012 Data Breach Investigation Report by Verizon Business.
This paper describes how large enterprises can effectively discover, catalog and scan web applications to control this major risk vector as part of their organization’s overall vulnerability management program.

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with:
• 100% protection against known viruses
• Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database
• Extended protection for smartphones and tablets
• Simplified web-based management

This infographic gives a quick visual representation of some of the key findings of a recent Webroot research on web security in the US and UK. As cybercriminals increasingly exploit vulnerabilities in mobile browsers and apps, companies with mobile workforces face new challenges in protecting users and critical data. And the impacts of failing to protect against mobile browsing threats can be severe. The infographic also gives a checklist of things you can do to reduce the risks. Among the key points:
• 50% of companies in the US estimate that web-borne attacks cost from $25,000 to $1 million in 2012.
• 90% of respondents agree that managing the security of remote users is challenging
• 50% of firms with remote workers had a website compromised
While there are an innumerable number of ways you could improve your business’s information security posture, for the sake of brevity let’s shorten that list to the methods which often provide great benefits. Here are five ways that you can help your business reduce the chance of being victimized by cybercrime.
This white paper provides insights into the current threat landscape for the financial services industry. Information is based on cyber security event data collected by IBM, as well as data derived from responding to, and performing forensics on, cyber security incidents.
A security framework is a step-by-step approach to helping an organization move from meeting its basic security requirements to providing a fully security-optimized environment. Five types of frameworks address progressive steps in security maturity as needs and capabilities change.

Online casinos generated $22.6 billion in global revenues in 2008, up from $17.6 in 2006. While the online gambling industry grows, so does organized fraud. Cyber criminals are working hard to uncover and sell people's personal information and share techniques on how to defraud online gambling sites. The online gambling industry stands to lose hundreds of millions of dollars annually to fraud exposure if effective anti-fraud strategies aren't put in place.
