When Daniel Shuler joined Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) as CISO in 2016, he knew the hospital would be a tempting target for cyber criminals due to the massive troves of sensitive data it collects to diagnose and treat patients. Over the next three years, Shuler spearheaded a complete overhaul of PCH’s security fabric. First, he decommissioned the legacy AV and engaged BlackBerry Cylance’s ThreatZERO™ consultants to deploy CylancePROTECT® on over 4,000 endpoints. Soon after, CylancePROTECT stopped a ransomware attack that could have disrupted patient care by preventing access to electronic medical record data. Next, he engaged a BlackBerry Cylance Red Team to perform annual penetration testing assignments. Says Shuler, “Our relationship is unique in my experience. BlackBerry Cylance has proven repeatedly that they have our best interests at heart and that they share our commitment to provide the best care possible for children and their families.” Read the case study for the full s
How secure is your company’s network?
The rising frequency of employee network access is fast becoming one of the most prevalent and unmanaged risks to the protection of critical enterprise data. When coupled with increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks, the possibility of a security breach of enterprise networks becomes more likely.

Ponemon Institute surveyed 569 individuals in IT security who are familiar with credential stuffing and are responsible for the security of their companies’ Internet properties. The survey identified key stats about credential stuffing, including the costs organizations incur to prevent damage, and the financial consequences when attackers succeed.
According to respondents, these attacks cause costly application downtime, loss of customers, and involvement of IT security that can result in a cost of millions of dollars. The survey highlights the challenges in identifying who is accessing their websites using stolen credentials, as well as the difficulty in preventing and remediating these attacks.
Organizations invest heavily to block advanced attacks, on both endpoints and networks. Despite all this investment, devices continue to be compromised in increasing numbers and high-profile breaches continue unabated. Something doesn’t add up. It comes down to psychology: security practitioners want to believe the latest shiny widget for preventing compromise will finally work and stop the pain.

The longer attackers remain in your network, the more lateral movement is possible and the greater the risk for data theft. Stopping the exfiltration of data, rather than focusing on stopping data breaches, is the most realistic approach to data security and reducing cyber dwell time.
You won’t want to miss this report, “A New Era in Endpoint Protection: A SANS Product Review of CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection,” where SANS reveals the results of their evaluation of the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform. To conduct their evaluation, SANS security analysts ran Falcon through a wide range of increasingly complex attack scenarios. The exploits they used to evaluate CrowdStrike included phishing, credential dumping/lateral movement, unknown malware, PowerShellattacks and more. The report shows that CrowdStrike Falcon was able to detect and prevent every attack to which SANS subjected it. Read this SANS report to learn:?Details on Falcon’s efficacy in preventing a wide range of attacks: Ransomware, lateral movement, PowerShell-based, and more?The power of the CrowdStrike Threat Graph™ and the benefits of its crowdsourced intelligence model
?How CrowdStrike’s ability to capture detailed forensic information on attempted and thwarted attacks, allows you to prevent attacks

Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attacks exploit a single vulnerability and then use that foothold to penetrate more systems and gain access to more corporate information. A recent QuinStreet web seminar, sponsored by Lumension, discussed APT attacks and tactics for preventing them. This paper summarizes the talks given during that web seminar.

Security attacks happen too often; recently, an attack on AT&T resulted in 120,000 identities being stolen. Organizations need to focus on security efforts to prevent breaches. Read to learn about reducing cost and complexity of preventing attacks.
A paradigm shift is underway in the cybersecurity industry. Cybersecurity professionals are moving from a focus on attacker prevention to attacker detection. Preventing the “bad guys” from getting in is still important, but cyber adversaries are increasingly able to bypass even the most sophisticated network defenses. Once inside, it is more important than ever to find these attackers fast, before their activities get buried in the daily volume and pulse of network communications. This is where security analytics holds promise. Security analytics provides the necessary and timely visibility into normal and abnormal network behavior. This visibility enables devices and entities acting suspiciously to be quickly identified and investigated.
This American Banker webcast, sponsored by IBM, provides new insight into cybercrime and fraud prevention.
Financial institutions have invested heavily in fraud prevention technologies and programs. However, sophisticated organized crime syndicates continue to successfully attack financial institutions and their customers. These criminals adapt quickly by using advanced technology and with ever changing attack vectors to exploit information security and fraud protection gaps across payment types, banking channels, and organizational boundaries. Traditional fraud prevention technologies are simply not capable of detecting and preventing account takeover and advanced malware attacks. A new approach to counter fraud is needed.
