#nationalcybersecuritymonth | Ways government, industry can overcome a perpetual challenge

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A congressional report recommended that the federal government takes several measures to improve its intelligence sharing relationship with industry through policy reviews and joint collaboration platforms.

The report, created by the Cyberspace Solarium Commission (made up of government and nongovernment cyber experts), presented 75 cyber policy recommendations, including the recognition that information sharing is a perpetual challenge both between feds and private industry and agencies within the federal government.

The report suggests that Congress direct the executive branch to undergo a six-month review of intelligence policies, procedures and resources to identify pieces that inhibit the intelligence community to effectively share information.

“It needs to be done better in terms of higher level of collaboration [at] more senior levels between and among the government and private sector,” said Tom Gann, chief public policy officer at McAfee.

To start, the report calls on the federal government to create a “systemically important critical infrastructure” designation that would allow operators of that infrastructure to receive special assistance from the government to secure their systems.

The information sharing relationship between the government and industry needs to include more contextualized information, Gann said, which provides greater insight into the overall threat environment. Industry doesn’t need to know just that there’s new malware and who sent it, but also what organizations and senior leaders of actors might be involved, as well as motivations.

“It’s building as complete of a picture as you can of a threat environment on a day-to-day basis … which is so important,” Gann said.

There are some efforts within the federal government focusing on improving intelligence sharing with private industry. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency at the Department of Homeland Security works with private and public sector partners to protect critical infrastructure. Another effort at the NSA’s Cybersecurity Directorate is focusing on intelligence sharing with the Defense Industrial Base.

To further those efforts, the report also suggests Congress fund the creation of a “Joint Collaborative Environment,” which would host both classified and unclassified cyberthreat information, malware forensics and network data. The platform would share information with other federal agencies and owners of “important” critical infrastructure, and eventually expanding to intelligence sharing and analysis centers, and a larger swath of critical infrastructure operators. The commission also proposed a Joint Cyber Planning Cell to coordinate cybersecurity planning efforts with the private sector.

The report also recognizes that U.S. government doesn’t know how to best serve the private sector with intelligence collection. In order to mitigate that, the report recommends that the Congress mandate a “formal process to solicit and compile private-sector input to inform national intelligence priorities, collection requirements, and more focused U.S intelligence support to private-sector cybersecurity operations.”

The private sector was a critical piece of the commission’s three-pronged, layered deterrence strategy it recommended. Strengthening the feds’ relationship with the critical infrastructure operators was a key aspect of the report, as demonstrated by the participation of Tom Fanning, CEO of Southern Company, a utility company.

To further that relationship, the federal government and different cybersecurity providers, such as telecom and end-point security companies, may want to explore what it would look like to partner with the federal government and allow it to actively block malicious activity, said Michael Daly, chief technology officer for cybersecurity and special missions at Raytheon.

“I think there would be a benefit to us at least investigating that as an option — how could we use public-private partnerships to do more active blocking?” Daly said.

Daly added, “If we know that’s a malicious site, let’s not let our citizens go to it.”

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.

VMware’s ‘vSphere vuln’ patches released to overcome man-in-the-middle

VMware has released an update to its vSphere Client which reports a potential – but hard to target – man-in-the-middle vulnerability for the virtu-lization tool.

The company said that users running vSphere Client 4.0, 4.1, 5.0, and 5.1 for Windows were vulnerable to a flaw that allows the client to download and install untrusted updates. Were an attacker to exploit the flaw, VMware said that users could be subject to remote code execution attacks via a malicious link or redirect.

Whereas systems running vSphere Client 5.5 are not vulnerable to the flaw.

Steve Pate, chief architect at virtualization security firm HyTrust, said that while administrators should always make sure users are running fully patched software, the risk of attacks targeting this vulnerability in the wild are likely to be low.

Pate explained that in the case of the vSphere Client vulnerability, an attacker would have to get in the middle of an update chain that runs when the vCenter Server platform is updated and no longer matches the end user’s version of the vSphere client, at which point the vulnerable component is launched.

The update comes just two days after VMware told users that 28 of its products contain versions of OpenSSL subject to the infamous Heartbleed security flaw.

The company has yet to roll out a fix for that flaw as it releases the patch for the vSphere Client vulnerability. Still, administrators need not fret much over their VMware products, Pate said.
He prominent that as few VMware implementations directly face the public web, the risk posed by Heartbleed will be lower than that of platforms and applications that are more readily accessible to potential attackers
