October is #National #Cybersecurity #Awareness Month

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Malware. Ransomware. Data breaches and hack attacks. These may have all been foreign terms just a year ago, but not anymore. Consumers are much more aware of digital threats, thanks in large part to that massive attack on the credit reporting bureau Equifax.

Millions of Americans had their data compromised in that attack. While many took steps to protect themselves, we know a lot of consumers simply ignored the threat altogether.

Are you guilty of procrastinating when it comes to your digital defenses? Don’t worry, now is your chance to act. October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Over the next several weeks, Better Business Bureau Northwest + Pacific will offer you tips and advice to protect yourself, your family, your business and your community.

First things first, follow these steps to protect your personal information:

Keep a clean machine: Ensure all software on internet-connected devices – including PCs, smartphones and tablets – is up to date to reduce risk of infection from malware.

Lock down your login: Your usernames and passwords are not enough for the personal data protection of email, banking and social media. Begin your spring cleaning by fortifying your online accounts and enabling the strongest authentication tools available, such as biometrics, security keys or a unique one-time code through an app on your mobile device.

Declutter your mobile life: Most of us have apps we no longer use and some that need updating. Delete unused apps and keep others current, including the operating system on your mobile device. An added benefit of deleting unused apps is more storage space and longer battery life. Actively manage your location services, Bluetooth, microphone and camera – making sure apps use them appropriately.

Do a digital file purge: Perform a good, thorough review of your online files. Tend to your digital records, PCs and phones and any device with storage just as you do for paper files. Start removing digital clutter by doing the following:

Clean up your email: Save only those emails you really need, and unsubscribe to email you no longer need/want to receive.

Back it up: Copy important data to a secure cloud site or another computer or drive where it can be safely stored. Password protect backup drives. Make sure to back up your files before getting rid of a device, too.

Stay tuned. Next week we will discuss tips to help protect your business and work information.

How to #attract the next #generation of #cybersecurity #talent

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

In 2018, CISOs will spend even more money than they have in the past on cyberdefense. TechRepublic’s Dan Patterson spoke with ProtectWise vice president of product management Dave Gold to discuss how companies can leverage their teams to enhance their cyberdefense strategy.

Cyberattacks are growing, their impacts are becoming more severe, and enterprises are struggling with where they should focus their efforts. Networks are changing and becoming more geographically dispersed, so organizations can’t rely on the old way of doing things of putting security at every location where security needs to be, Gold said.

“CISOs are really struggling to find enough people to do the work that we need to do,” he said. “It’s big business to attack a lot of these organizations. These are well-funded organizations, and well-funded adversaries that are coming after the data.”

Organizations are also struggling to figure out the right technologies that they need. It’s challenging for CISOs to deal with all these moving parts at once: transitioning to the cloud, changing networks, and not having the right people or tools to protect themselves from cyberattacks.

“The reality is there’s just not enough people to do this work,” he said. Organizations need to look for tools and products that can optimize the way their people spend their time.

Gold’s advice for most CISOs would be to think about how their organization is doing business, and how they can make their team more efficient in all those areas. “As organizations are moving to the cloud, security is a huge challenge. As we try to go out and hire more people, you need to find the tools that’s going to track that next generation of analysts,” he said.

Organizations need to make sure they are buying products and technologies that are going to make their teams more efficient, and not just adding another tool to their toolbox that they don’t have the time to use, he added.

Online #game designed to #bring more #young women into #cybersecurity #field

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

High school girls will soon have a chance to play as “cyber protection agents” in an online game designed to attract more women into the cybersecurity field.

Delaware is one of seven states to partner with the SANS Institute, a for-profit cybersecurity training company, on the pilot of CyberStart. The online game is designed to teach cybersecurity skills to young people through sets of interactive challenges. The first round of the program engaged 358 students in Delaware and 3,300 across all seven states — but just five percent were women.

The latest version, Girls Go CyberStart, is designed to draw more young women to the game and ultimately the fast-growing cybersecurity field.

“The importance of cybersecurity cannot be understated and I encourage young women in Delaware high schools to take advantage of this opportunity to explore career options in this vital field,” Gov. John Carney said. “Delaware needs a pipeline of talent and a strong workforce to remain competitive in the innovation economy.”

Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay CEO Anne T. Hogan said the organization will encourage its members to play the game. “This program will allow girls to learn by doing, develop important problem solving and leadership skills, and take the lead on their futures,” she said.

The players must complete 10 levels of challenges based around protecting an “operational base” under threat of cyber attack. The game will provide an agent field manual to help overcome the basic technical challenges of cybersecurity.

Registration will open January 29 and run until February 16. The first 10,000 applicants can play the game from February 20-25. More information is available at GirlsGoCyberStart.com.

Where Will The #Cybersecurity #Battle Lines Be #Drawn In #2018?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Beneath everyday web traffic, there’s a fierce battle raging for the security of the Internet. On one side are the villains; cyber criminals ranging from thrill-seeking amateurs to nation states. On the other side are the cybersecurity professionals, including researchers and analysts, all of whom seek to protect data.

The odds of either side scoring a decisive blow and ending the long-running battle for security is quite low. As with all battles, both sides are racing to develop new technologies that will give them the upper hand. While much of the conflict takes place in unseen digital arenas, organizations and individuals are realizing that their data sits in the line of fire. Recent years have seen the threat become all the more potent in the aftermath of successful attacks on businesses that were previously seen as unassailable.

One thing that is clear is that the battle lines will continue to shift. New tactics will arise and shape the future of the conflict. Here is a preview of what to expect on the frontlines in 2018 and beyond.

Advance: Phishing Targets Cloud

While phishing is a somewhat dated security concern, it’s still highly effective if delivered via the right vector. Over the years, internet users have become much wiser to traditional phishing (typos, unknown senders, mysterious attachments, etc.), so cybercriminals have looked for new avenues. The rise of cloud apps has opened up attack vectors that didn’t previously exist. The 2017 Google Docs attack is a prime example, with legitimate Google sign-in screens used to trick users into granting permissions to a malicious third-party application. The app then harvested information from victims’ contacts and emails. Criminals are increasingly spoofing trusted applications in order to deceive unsuspecting victims into granting permissions or handing over credentials.

Countermove: MFA And Behaviors

There are various ways to protect against phishing techniques. Switching from username and passwords to Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is one of the swiftest and most effective methods. MFA’s layered security prevents criminals from accessing user accounts even if they manage to acquire the login. MFA is already in use on many websites, with companies such as Facebook, Apple and Dropbox introducing or enhancing MFA in the last year.

Another way to counter advanced phishing attacks is through smart detection technology, which my company leverages, that can monitor user behavior across multiple cloud apps and detect strange activity, signaling a person is not who they claim to be. If a hacker programmatically accesses or downloads large volumes of data from a cloud app, a smart detection system could automatically flag this as suspicious, or block the transaction outright. Making detection “smart” is a step up from simply looking for a phishing email to understanding and detecting attacks as they unfold. For example, using machine learning to gain a deeper understanding of typical user behavior, and then looking for deviations from that norm can help to detect even the most subtle usage of stolen credentials. Companies have started to apply smart detection for internal threats in quite a few areas. In the User Behavior Analytics space, Exabeam, Securonix and Splunk have all begun using smart detection. In the Data Loss Prevention space, Amazon Web Services is employing smart detection, and companies like Cylance, Carbon Black and CrowdStrike all use it for external threat detection.

Advance: Attacks On SaaS

Many of the biggest players in the Software as a Service (SaaS) market are now taking cybersecurity very seriously. For example, Forbes reported in 2015 that Microsoft’s annual cybersecurity spend is now in excess of $1 billion. The vast majority of cybercriminals out there look for the path of least resistance, meaning they will increasingly turn their attention away from security-conscious organizations like Microsoft and target smaller, fast-growing SaaS app vendors and startups. With smaller budgets and fewer resources, these companies are less able to make the massive investments in security that larger cloud apps can make. As a result, it’s only a matter of time before we see one or more of these companies suffering a significant breach.

Countermove: Security Parity

One of the biggest issues is the fact that SaaS apps don’t all offer the same security controls for corporate data. While some offer security capabilities natively (such as access controls, malware/threat detection and identity management), the capabilities are not consistent, even across popular apps. As a result, security personnel have a very difficult time ensuring data moving between various cloud apps remains secure and compliant. In addition, many newer/smaller cloud apps have no security capabilities at all. The most efficient counter-move is to shift from attempting to secure each and every cloud application to securing all cloud data, because applications are largely out of a user’s control. Giving security parity to data means a more consistent level of protection.

Advance: Intelligent Malware

The Necurs botnet is one example of a sophisticated weapon in the cyber arsenal. What marks Necurs out from other tools is its ability to constantly change to stay one step ahead of experts. In 2017, Necurs was linked to spam distribution, spreading Trojans, DDoS attacks and even pump-and-dump stock scams. Perhaps most disturbingly, Necurs-controlled malware has started to gather victim’s data, which is then transmitted back to adversaries. By gathering intelligence, the botnet has “learned” and there will be new, more sophisticated attacks in the future. In 2018, we’ll see a big increase in machine learning-driven “smart” malware.

Countermove: Machine Learning

In order to counter smart malware, protection must also learn and adapt. Creating solutions capable of this has been a big challenge for the industry. Fortunately, advances in the field of machine learning are providing answers by giving computers the ability to learn without being specifically programmed. This means they are able to adapt in response to a situation. This means new smart detection solutions can actively learn and understand the behaviors of malware, not simply identify a malware signature or file type that has been associated with malware in the past.

The cybersecurity battle will inevitably continue to rage long into the future. For security professionals, the key lies in the ability to quickly identify and adapt to new threats, nullifying their potency as fast as possible. The three offensive moves above are just the tip of the iceberg, but countermoves can be put in place to mitigate the threat posed, both now and in the future.

Filing #Deadline #Approaching for #New York’s #Cybersecurity #Regulation

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

New York Department of Financial Services Superintendent Maria T. Vullo has reminded all regulated entities and licensed persons covered by the Department of Financial Services’s (DFS) cybersecurity regulation that the first certification of compliance must be filed on or prior to February 15, 2018.

The filing requires a statement to the superintendent covering the prior calendar year and must be filed electronically via the DFS cybersecurity portal.

“The DFS compliance certification is a critical governance pillar for the cybersecurity program of all DFS regulated entities,” said Vullo in a press release issued by DFS. “As DFS continues to implement its landmark cybersecurity regulation, we will take proactive steps to protect our financial services industry from cyber criminals.”

DFS’s cybersecurity regulation requires each entity to have an annual review and assessment of the program’s achievements, deficiencies and overall compliance with regulatory standards, and the DFS cybersecurity portal will allow the safe and secure reporting of these certifications, Vullo added in the release.

Vullo also announced that DFS will now be incorporating cybersecurity in all examinations. This includes adding questions related to cybersecurity to “first day letters,” which are notices the department issues to commence its examinations of financial services companies, including examinations of banks and insurance companies for safety, soundness and market conduct.

New York’s first-in-the-nation cybersecurity regulation became effective March 1, 2017.

As of the first implementation deadline of August 28, 2017, all banks, insurance companies and other financial services institutions and licensees regulated by DFS are required to have a cybersecurity program in place that is designed to protect consumers’ private data; a written policy or policies that are approved by the board or a senior officer; a chief information security officer to help protect data and systems; and controls and plans in place to help ensure the safety and soundness of New York’s financial services industry. Covered entities and licensees must also report cybersecurity events to DFS through the department’s online cybersecurity portal.

Four #cybersecurity #tips for #travelers

Do you sacrifice convenience for security when you’re traveling on vacation or on business? A University of Phoenix survey says very few people take precautions to safeguard their data while traveling.

“You need to practice the same cybersecurity precautions that you take at home or at work when you are on business trips or vacations,” says Dennis Bonilla, executive dean at the College of Information Systems and Technology School of Business, University of Phoenix. “That’s when you are less secure because you are accessing networks that are not as protected and have a lot of public access. That’s where the hackers are lurking to figure out how to get your information.”

Bonilla shares four ways to protect yourself when traveling on business or vacation:

Avoid public Wi-Fi

Using public Wi-Fi at the airport or local coffee shop is certainly convenient. However, Bonilla says many of those networks aren’t encrypted. That means the data you are transmitting can be easily accessed. Hackers now have sophisticated tools that can intercept the data you are transmitting. Not only can they log keystrokes; they can also download your data onto their own device.

Don’t access Bluetooth

Do you enjoy listening to music on your Bluetooth device? Bonilla says the same way you access Bluetooth to get music from your device to your headphones, hackers can use the same technology to steal data from you. In late 2017, security company Armis published details of a new Bluetooth vulnerability in which hackers can take complete control of targeted devices in only 10 seconds. Bonilla’s advice is to always keep your Bluetooth capability off when traveling.

Stop using your personal device for business purposes

A University of Phoenix survey found a majority of travelers mistakenly believe their devices are just as safe on vacation as at home. Bonilla says you should never let your guard down. Using your personal device for business purposes not only puts your information at risk but also your employer’s. Imagine the amount of information that could get into the wrong hands! There may be financial data, intellectual property or other sensitive information you don’t want the general public to see. He says it’s important to avoid using common passwords for both devices.

Stay away from a hotel’s shared office space

Thinking about stopping by the hotel’s business center to print out your airline boarding pass? Bonilla says those computers are extremely vulnerable to cyber criminals, especially if you use them to check your personal or work emails. He says a lot of hotels don’t have any protection or encryption on their computers, putting your information at risk.

Bonilla says criminals are always a couple of steps ahead of the average person. No longer do hackers need a deep amount of knowledge to carry out their crimes. All they need is a laptop and an internet connection. He says it’s important for the average person to be educated on the ways hackers can target their information.

“Don’t be lazy,” says Bonilla. “Cyber-attacks are at an all-time high. We are more connected than ever. You’ve got to take precautions. Take the simple steps of updating the software on your phone, disabling Bluetooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi – stay off those network spaces. That’s where they are waiting to attack.”

Diversifying #IT #investment: It’s not #just #cyber-security

It is important that the company continues to look at all areas of the business in order to build a robust IT infrastructure.

Investing in a company’s IT systems is now a regular part of planning. However, it is easy for the team to focus on only a few areas of the business instead of taking a holistic approach. An overemphasis on data protection, for example, can overshadow other areas of the business; this has been seen most recently with Deloitte’s decision to increase its cyber-security investment to $600 million. In order to avoid this scenario, it is important that the company continues to look at all areas of the business in order to build a robust IT infrastructure.

When it comes to improving IT, many businesses are put off by the challenge of migrating legacy systems and platforms. It is a time-consuming process, especially if the business has expanded through M&A activity or partnerships. In most cases, data will be stored on different systems and in different formats, so a consolidation exercise is quite significant and will inevitably require a sizeable investment.

advertisement:

This issue can often go ignored as staff grow used to working with disparate data sets and systems. However, the impact on productivity and output is severely hampered as employees navigate through multiple programs to find client information or historical data. It is also likely that mistakes can be made when the data does not exist on a single accessible platform. Through well-thought migration and consolidation, processes will be streamlined, and the business can focus on delivering results rather than searching for and manipulating information.

Bringing on help

To achieve the best possible results, IT investment often needs to go beyond in-house systems and tools. As competition increases, businesses need to improve both their output and processes; this is where investment in outsourcing providers can prove invaluable. This solution is often overlooked, however, largely due to how outsourcing is historically viewed by IT and the business as a whole.

It is important for these groups to remember that outsourcing does not mean removing the internal team and replacing them with a third party – that is an option but is by no means the only choice available. More often than not, outsourcing is used to provide enhanced support on projects and services, alleviate the burden of certain processes or simply get advice on current business practices. If outsourced effectively, the IT team will have more time to develop and improve processes and applications for the business, while the third party can deal with the other day-to-day Business as usual (BAU)tasks.

Planning for the worst

IT investment typically aims to improve current technology or streamline certain processes, but there can be a huge gap when it comes to planning. Businesses are so familiar with using technology they often forget to strategically plan how to mitigate risks and unforeseen issues that can occur when things go wrong – be it a sudden office closure, a system failure, a catastrophic security incident or transport strikes. At a simple level, when the company is hit by an unexpected event, staff can often scramble to continue their working day. Without a clear strategy in place, the business risks losing vast sums of money due to the inability for staff to work effectively and efficiently. This doesn’t even take into account areas, such as reputational damage and regulatory penalties the company may face.

 

IT has a vital role to play in providing a comprehensive, structured and strategic business continuity plan that is able to respond to any challenges that can impact company operations. A key barrier to making improvements in this area is due to how the company views its IT priorities. Regulation, data protection and the general running of the hardware can seem like the most important parts of the business. However, if the day-to-day is not accounted for, these large-scale IT challenges will not matter – the business will simply suffer from lack of planning.

Here’s What’s at Stake for Companies That Don’t Comply With GDPR

IT investment is a vital part of how a company operates. However, it cannot be focused on a single area or aspect of the business. Simply investing in cyber security alone will not improve internal processes or streamline activity. As such, there needs to be a balanced approach to this activity, one that takes into account all aspects of the business in order to build a comprehensive and fully functioning IT operation.

Cybersecurity #experts #agree — expect more #ransomware this #year

Ransomware is one of the easiest cyberattacks to detect because it comes with an actual ransom note. However, 2017 gave way to new propagation mechanisms, which automated worming and increased infection rates.

Employee-facing services and technologies are a top concern to cybersecurity professionals. About 40% of employees use personal devices to send work emails and share or access company data without the IT department’s oversight.

The bring your own device policy is challenging for IT departments to combat. Ultimately, the policy leads to unintended shadow IT, which is often the Achilles heel of solid security practices.

Negligent employee actions can cost a company about $280,000 per incident. If the cost were not enough, companies need to come to terms with the fact that 64% of security breaches are caused by ignorant employee actions.

To help companies better track the most high-risk employees​, in terms of their cybersecurity incompetencies, vendors like Microsoft are including simulated ransomware or phishing attacks in their services.

Hackers will always take advantage of human error and poor judgment, so it’s up to security teams to educate line of business employees.

Top #global #cybersecurity #challenges and #how to #overcome #them

Imagine the havoc wreaked on your company’s servers if they were infected by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) bot that is bundled with a ransomware payload, or the damage to your brand if a phishing attack targeting your users and customers resulted in the theft of personal information.

Whatever the kind of cyberattack, there can be serious consequences for the company. It could be forced to pay big money to rescue its systems from the clutches of cybercriminals, lose the trust and confidence of customers and users, and even be liable to pay fines and penalties for failing to comply with data privacy laws such as the EU’s Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

As the size and type of cyberattacks continue to exand, many organizations struggle to focus their efforts on what matters most to their unique business. Here are some of today’s top global cybersecurity challenges and how companies can overcome them to strengthen their cyber defense:

Managing both content security and performance

Customer data is one of your company’s most important assets and is a significant investment for your business. When there’s a breach, you’ll lose customer trust because they’ll start to worry about other vulnerabilities in your network.

To protect against such an attack, companies must ensure their security solutions and software are always up to date. However, with so many types of new attacks cropping up every day, it’s best to use a comprehensive, cloud-based suite vs. a one-off solution. Doing so will help protect your business against new and emerging threats and allow you to employ preventive mitigation measures without adding latency to the delivery experience.

Safeguarding against DDoS attacks

A DDoS attack is one where a network of zombie computers sabotage a specific website or server by fictitiously boosting the volume of traffic causing it to shut down. Such attacks cause businesses to lose millions in revenues.

Another reason for DDoS to be a growing concern is the frequency and sophistication of attacks along with their duration and size, which has increased over the past few years.

To protect yourself against the financial and reputational damages caused by such an attack, you could use a product that can proactively intercept and mitigate a DDoS attack.

This provides much faster scrubbing performance since traffic isn’t moved off your Content Delivery Network (CDN), the network of proxy servers and data centers that distributes your data, for cleaning.

Limelight Network’s solution is effective because when it detects an attack, it passes the traffic to one of several globally distributed scrubbing centers to filter it before passing it back to your origin.

Protecting web applications

As a business, the idea behind launching a web application is usually to improve the customer experience. However, unless you protect your web applications appropriately, they’ll just expose you and your customer to unwarranted cyberthreats.

According to Limelight Networks, retail and financial sectors in Southeast Asia suffered the most from web app attacks. Over the past year alone, there has been a significant increase in attack incidents, with websites containing consumer data being the target of 60 percent of attacks.

To combat such threats effectively, business leaders are now turning to cloud-based security solutions instead of on-premise equipment.

Using a Web Application Firewall (WAF) to secure your web-apps as it inserts its nodes between origin servers and the CDN does the heavy work of content caching, web acceleration, and delivery of static content.

Web app attacks are dynamic, so if your WAF only accepts traffic from your CDN, it can minimize the performance impact of WAF protection and lock down IP traffic.

When a new vulnerability is identified, a new security rule should be created and pushed to all WAF nodes. Doing so makes the solution so secure that it can even close “zero-day” attacks prior to app vendor patches being deployed.

You should also make sure your chosen security solution offers protection against malicious bots. They’re the ones that crawl the internet looking for vulnerabilities for cyberattacks.

Staying ahead of the curve

If you’re a business that aims to empower customers through your digital presence, you’ll need to implement (and update) cybersecurity measures at your organization immediately.

Failing to do so puts a lot at risk on your business – including your reputation and the future prospects of your company.

Implementing a cybersecurity solution created and backed by a company such as Limelight Networks, for example, helps you secure your business on all fronts.

The company’s DDoS Attack Interceptor combines a global CDN with in-network detection and attack mitigation to facilitate situation-aware detection and mitigation via on network scrubbing centers.

Its CDN protection offers several features such as geo-fencing, IP whitelisting and blacklisting, which help you fend off even the most seasoned cybercriminals. The same is also true for its DDoS protection and WAF solution, both of which give you the best-in-class cyber protection.

The company’s scalable cloud-based architecture also allows you to reduce the total cost of protection by leveraging its massive global private infrastructure.

Limelight Networks also boasts world-class features such as a dedicated global network, proactive, intelligent threat detection using behavior-based analysis, and cloud-based scrubbing of traffic – which reassures even the most concerned consumer. Act now, because hackers won’t spare your systems while you’re still wondering what to do next.
