"Security analysts have a tougher job than ever. New vulnerabilities and security attacks used to be a monthly occurrence, but now they make the headlines almost every day. It’s become much more difficult to effectively monitor and protect all the data passing through your systems. Automated attacks from bad bots that mimic human behavior have raised the stakes, allowing criminals to have machines do the work for them.
Not only that, these bots leave an overwhelming number of alert bells, false positives, and inherent stress in their wake for security practitioners to sift through. Today, you really need a significant edge when combating automated threats launched from all parts of the world.
Where to start? With spending less time investigating all that noise in your logs."

CyberEdge Group’s sixth annual Cyberthreat Defense Report provides a penetrating look at how IT
security professionals perceive cyberthreats and plan to defend against them. Based on a survey
of 1,200 IT security decision makers and practitioners conducted in November 2018, the report
delivers countless insights IT security teams can use to better understand how their perceptions,
priorities, and security postures stack up against those of their peers.
? Cyberthreat trifecta. Of 11 categories of cyberthreats, malware is the greatest concern for
responding organizations, followed closely by phishing and ransomware (see Figure 1).
? Healthy security budgets. The average security budget is increasing 4.9% in 2019 and
represents 12.5% of an organization’s overall budget for IT.
? Threat hunting obstacle. The top inhibitor to achieving effective threat-hunting capabilities is
the difficulty organizations are having implementing or integrating related tools.
? Security’s mos
Cloud Access Security Brokers are one of the fastest growing security technologies today because they provide cloud service visibility, data security, threat protection, and compliance. CASBs are an effective and easy way to mitigate the top cloud security threats and security practitioners look to trusted CASB providers as strategic partners to help advise on key cloud security decisions.
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.

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.

The third-annual Cyberthreat Defense Report pursues this same objective: to inform the IT security community not so much about what the bad guys are up to, but rather about how their peers globally are currently defending against threats and the changes they expect to make going forward. Based on a rigorous survey of IT security decision makers and practitioners – across not only North America and Europe, but for the first time, in Asia Pacific and Latin America as well – the Cyberthreat Defense Report examines the current and planned deployment of countermeasures against the backdrop of numerous perceptions.
Security practitioners and threat actors are constantly developing new techniques to gain advantages over the other. In recent years, security teams have stepped up their approaches to protecting their infrastructure by fortifying their network perimeter defenses, building up protections against advanced malware, upgrading vulnerable operating systems, automating the delivery of patches to stop exploits, and developing counter-measures to spot intruders. The threat actors looking to circumvent these measures are shifting their attention toward the next weakest link in the security chain – the user.
The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

Join Joe Schreiber, Solutions Architect for AlienVault for this practical session outlining habits to get the most out of your limited resources. In this session, you'll learn how to develop routines to efficiently manage your environment, avoid time-sucks, and determine what you can do by yourself and where you need help.
Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the field can argue against them. They are atomic. Experts use them like building blocks to derive everything else that is worth knowing in the problem domain. In this paper, I propose that the first principle for all network defenders is to prevent high-risk material impact to the organization.

A new report from Gigamon ATR helps security practitioners understand how Emotet, LokiBot and TrickBot traversed enterprise networks without detection in 2018. It particularly focuses on the malwares’ command and control (C2) and lateral movement, as these behaviors expose opportunities to observe network traffic, discover these threats and reduce risk. The goal: shorter mean time to detection and response, a more mature security program and a balanced approach to mitigating risk.
