Security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). But this Internet protocol doesn’t have to be a vulnerability.
Medicaid fraud is prevalent, costly and difficult to prevent. With a combination of more integrated data and advanced analytics, state agencies can turn the tables on fraudsters. They can accelerate the transition from detection to prevention, as new forms of fraud are recognized faster and fewer improper payments go out the door.

Enterprises and the threats that target them have all fundamentally evolved over the past decade. In response, the security industry has generated an enormous amount of point solutions and technologies to try and keep pace. However, for all of this innovation and change, the underlying enforcement architecture has remained largely unchanged.
A new modern approach to preempting threats is required. One that augments the existing architecture instead of replaces it. This new approach brings full enterprise and business context to real-time enforcement decisions. Identity, behavior, devices, anomalies, and risk all play a real-time role. Just as importantly, enforcement and access options can be graded based on the risk to the business, and policies can actively seek out and adapt to new information.

Organizations still struggle with communication between data owners and those responsible for administering DLP systems, leading to technology-driven — rather than business-driven — implementations.
Many clients who deploy enterprise DLP systems struggle to get out of the initial phases of discovering and monitoring data flows, never realizing the potential benefits of deeper data analytics or applying appropriate data protections.
DLP as a technology has a reputation of being a high-maintenance control — incomplete deployments are common, tuning is a never-ending process, lack of organization buy-in is low, and calculations of ROI are complex.
Fraudsters are only becoming smarter. How is your organization keeping pace and staying ahead of fraud schemes and regulatory mandates to monitor for them? Technology is redefining what’s possible in fighting fraud and financial crimes, and SAS is at the forefront, offering solutions to:
• Protect from reputational, regulatory and financial risks.
• Reduce the cost of fraud and financial crimes prevention.
• Gain a holistic view of risk across functions.
• Include cyber events in regulatory report filings.
In this e-book, learn the basics in how to prevent fraud, achieve compliance and preserve security. SAS fraud solutions use advanced analytics and artificial intelligence to help your organization better detect and prevent fraud. By applying analytics and powerful machine learning on a unifying platform, SAS helps organizations around the globe detect more financial offenses, reduce false positives and run more efficient investigations.
Complete enterprise security requires coordination. Firms must integrate the technologies and data that come from the endpoint and network
layers to make accurate decisions that ensure optimal threat detection, containment, and remediation. Unfortunately, too many firms rely on a
huge variety of solutions that require manual integration and correlation, leading to wasted time and poor threat detection. Security leaders
must automate these processes to eliminate detection lag and improve prevention efforts.

While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP
"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing.

Il Gruppo Marcegaglia conferma una strategia di sicurezza IT basata su soluzioni Cisco che va dagli strumenti di firewall al sistema di Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System passando per la gestione centralizzata.
Il Gruppo Marcegaglia è la realtà industriale leader mondiale nella trasformazione dell’acciaio che opera dall’Italia a livello globale, con una presenza di 43 stabilimenti distribuiti su una superficie complessiva di 6 milioni di metri quadrati. Fanno parte del Gruppo 7.000 dipendenti, 60 unità e 210 rappresentanze commerciali per un fatturato che, nel 2013, è stato di oltre 4 miliardi di euro nel settore dell’acciaio e diversificate. Il tutto grazie alla produzione quotidiana di 5.500 chilometri di manufatti in acciaio inossidabile e al carbonio per oltre 15.000 clienti, per un totale di oltre 5 milioni di tonnellate lavorate ogni anno.
Since the early days of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for this category, there have been successive waves of innovation. Back in 2002, integrated firewalls captured the market’s (and Gartner’s) attention. Over the years, we’ve seen technologies, such as full disk encryption, data loss prevention (DLP), behavioral detection, application control, and more recently, machine learning, as effective new ways to protect endpoints, detect threats and give security teams peace of mind. Trend Micro has consistently been part of these innovation waves.
It’s clear that the market is excited about Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR). There are two drivers for this, and we are committed to delivering effective solutions in both areas.
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.
Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and
new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various
manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of
security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well.
Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years
consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat
detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the
security market in 2018. This visibility has unleashed the potential for automation to become more widely adopted, and not

“If we had done anything differently in Washington state, we would have done it faster,” said Hammersburg. “The key message is that fraud prevention – dealing with risk and program integrity – is not a cost issue, it’s a saving. When you can truly quantify the
positive impact to the bottom line of a company or government agency, you shift the recognition that this is not an expense but that it’s a saving.”
Some government organizations may be concerned that a rigorous program to shine a light on the underground economy will shine a brighter light on how much they didn’t know until now. Don’t let that stop you, said Hammersburg. “You have the opportunity
to really get ahead of it now. Turn a risk into an opportunity going forward.”
For the past decade, financial institutions have created sophisticated digital platforms for consumers to access, save, share and interact with their financial accounts. As sophisticated as these digital platforms have become, cyber criminals continue to pose an ever-present risk for everyone – from individual consumers to large corporations.

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 defenses with creative, stealthy,
targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected
for significant periods of time.
