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.
SecureWorks provides an early warning system for evolving cyber threats, enabling organisations to prevent, detect, rapidly respond to and predict cyber attacks. Combining unparalleled visibility into the global threat landscape and powered by the Counter Threat Platform — our advanced data analytics and insights engine —SecureWorks minimises risk and delivers actionable, intelligence driven security solutions for clients around the world.
RSA Technical Brief: The openness of today's networks and the growing sophistication of advanced threats make it almost impossible to prevent cyber attacks and intrusions. This technical brief discusses why combating advanced threats depends on organizations shifting more security resources from prevention to detection and remediation, and developing intelligence-driven security programs.
Today’s viruses, worms, trojans, spyware and headline-stealing ransomware targeting your business — with Cyren’s new special threat report dedicated to Malware, you’ll get smart on the topic. Understand the different types of malware, gain insight into what’s new and of concern, and learn from an in-depth interview with anti-malware innovator and industry wise man Fridrik Skulason, who pioneered security capable of detecting previously unknown threats in the late 1980s by applying rules-based heuristics, and continues to do battle with malware authors today as Cyren’s VP of Anti-Malware Technologies.
Analyst brief brought to you by NSS Labs.
Where the goal of cyberprevention has been to reduce the probability of an attack against the organization, cyber resilience looks to reduce the impact of these attacks through cyber risk management. A cyber resilience program still considers detection and prevention techniques, but it also assumes that a breach is likely. This stance emphasizes anticipation, agility, and adaptation. Not every attack can be prevented, but with a cyber resilience program, damage can be mitigated or avoided altogether.
This document will identify the essential capabilities you should seek in an advanced malware protection solution,
the key questions you should ask your advanced malware protection vendor, and shows you how Cisco combats
today’s advanced malware attacks using a combination of techniques.
Cisco AMP for Endpoints is a cloud-managed endpoint security solution that provides the visibility, context and control to not only prevent cyberattacks, but also rapidly detect, contain, and remediate advanced threats if they evade front-line defenses and get inside—all cost-effectively, without affecting operational efficiency, and before damage can be done.
Recently, a series of cyber attacks on the Defense Department and Defense contractors in the United States as well as the Ministry of Defense and Parliament in the U.K. have created significant cause-for-concern by computer security experts. It is imperative you read this brief and learn how we're all vulnerable and what is being done to prevent these Cyber Attacks.
NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco FirePOWER 8350 v5.3. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) methodology v5.4 available on www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s participation.
