As the threat landscape evolves, organizations have accepted the fact that they have to take a more proactive detection approach to advanced threats rather than relying on traditional defenses. As a result, customers have turned to detection and response tools that allow for proactive “hunting” for Indicators of Attack (IoA) and reactive “sweeping” for indicators of compromise (IoCs). Once found, those tools are required to automatically respond to attacks or to at least provide for an action from the Incident Response (IR) staff. Unfortunately, due to the number and complexity of both these attacks and the detection/response tools, organizations struggle to hire enough qualified staff and stay on top of the discovered threats. This is compounded by a worldwide cybersecurity skills shortage. Managed detection and response (XDR) provides advanced threat hunting, detection, and response as a service to organizations that seek assistance for their own IR staff, or for those who wish to o
The following insights should be used as a resource for Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) as they lead or support their organisation through a cloud adoption journey.
It is designed to provide an overview of cloud adoption drivers, costs, risks, and benefits, as well as raise important questions about staffing and technology decisions that are critical to success. It is also intended to help inform business cases, while surfacing measurements and indicators specific to cloud environments that impact the bottom line.
The foundational guidance provided is a collection of insights captured and distilled from direct conversations and engagements between Amazon Web Services (AWS) and customer CFOs representing an extensive range of industries.

Today’s IT environments are so dynamic and complex that traditional manual administration makes it virtually impossible to keep pace with changing business opportunities and challenges, such as scaling to support new applications and users. Manual administration is not just unsustainable—it’s dangerous. Delays in responding to security threats and compliance issues can have devastating effects:
• Security breaches • Failed audits • Financial losses • Loss of customers and reputation • Other serious business consequences
To sustain a high level of security and compliance, IT teams must implement a comprehensive, aggressive automation strategy that establishes and tracks key performance indicators. Automation helps to optimize resources, increase efficiencies, lower costs and improve quality of service. This white paper describes principles and best practices for implementing automation as a strategic asset in the ongoing effort to achieve security and compliance excellence in a dynamic

A survey commissioned by Intel Security and conducted by Evalueserve, in conjunction with the report, suggests that a majority of companies lack confidence in their ability to detect targeted attacks in a timely manner. Even companies best prepared to handle targeted attacks are taking the time to investigate high volumes of events. Key findings include 78% of those able to detect attacks in minutes had a proactive, real-time SIEM solution.

This report details seven case studies of attacks that were intercepted and neutralized by cyber defense AI, including insider threat, ransomware, and IoT attacks.
While all threat scenarios were distinct, some fast-moving and others slow and stealthy, in all cases the subtle indicators of suspicious activity were only detectable using Darktrace AI, which learns what is normal for the business environment and autonomously responds to attacks – before damage is done.
Cyber threat intelligence is unquestionably a hot buzzword in the security industry these days. It is being used to seek venture capital and fund startups. It is being pitched to the enterprise market by providers and consultants. However, in this paper, we argue that the majority of what is being billed as “threat intelligence” isn’t. It’s data. From lists of bad IPs or application vulnerabilities to malware signatures, social media data or indicators of compromise (“IOCs”), none of these things are “intelligence.” They’re data.
In this white paper, we define the difference between intelligence and data, and then illustrate the theoretical discussion in a concise case study in the tangible terms of a real-world practitioner and an actual event.

Analyst firm Frost & Sullivan advise that enterprises can’t take their eye off network-based threats like bots – the go-to tactic for criminals. Bot detection is essential yet popular technologies like sandboxing can miss advanced threats altogether. This paper reviews:
• The importance of detecting and correlating multiple indicators in an automatic, investigative manner
• Bot detection methodologies – which are most effective
• How Damballa Failsafe, an advanced threat detection system, determines bot intention and nature with certainty

These days, fraudsters have it easier than ever. The volume of devices commonly in use and the numbers of applications and websites accessed daily have grown so large so fast that organizations can be overwhelmed in trying to protect their resources and their users. The result? Innocent—but sometimes devastating—errors. An organization may deploy only partial measures to protect against threats. And users may actively work around protection to avoid cumbersome security procedures.
