Cybersecurity #pros don’t feel #equipped to stop #insider #attacks

Source: National Cyber Security News

Based on interviews with nearly 1,500 cybersecurity professionals over three years, Haystax Technology released a study that makes it clear that organizations are feeling the pressure from insider threats and are ramping up detection, prevention and remediation.

“One consistent message we heard in all of these interviews was that cybersecurity professionals don’t feel equipped to stop insider attacks, despite an increase in funding for things like better controls and training,” said Haystax CEO Bryan Ware. “I’m not surprised that so many are now using analytics, as they need actionable intelligence to proactively identify and defend against threats from both malicious insiders and negligent users.”

Key findings
In 2017, 90 percent of organizations reported feeling vulnerable to insider attacks, up from 64 percent in 2015. Haystax predicts 99 percent of organizations will feel vulnerable this year as they struggle with excessive access privileges and an increasing number of devices with access to sensitive data.
Privileged users were cited as the biggest insider threat concern for 55 percent of organizations in 2017. Haystax predicts that 2018 will be the year when regular employees surpass trusted insiders as the greater risk.
Just 19 percent of organizations deployed user behavior analytics (UBA) solutions in 2016 to proactively monitor employee populations, a figure that jumped to nearly 30 percent last year.

5 Skills #Cybersecurity #Pros Will #Need in #2018

Source: National Cyber Security News

Cybercrime has never been so common and it’s now easier than ever for criminals to launch attacks. As a result of easy-to-use hacking tools, novices without programming experience can perform potentially devastating hacks.

In response to the growing demand for cybersecurity and to protect against increasingly complex attacks, security skills are in high demand. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, cybersecurity professionals earn an average salary of $116,000—nearly three times the national average.

In response to the rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape, professionals must keep their skills sharp. These are 5 skills that cybersecurity professionals should consider investing in for 2018.

1. Cloud Security

Cloud computing has transformed the way organizations store data, use applications and manage workloads—but it’s also introduced a host of new security challenges.

The responsibility to maintain cloud security lies with the organization, not the service provider—something businesses transitioning to the cloud must realize. Organizations will also need to pivot from on-premise threats to investing in cloud security. To do this, they’ll need professionals with cloud security skills.

Threats to cloud security could include poor identity management and attackers may disguise themselves as legitimate users to secretly snoop, modify or delete data.

Cybersecurity #Pros Can’t Keep #Pace with #Threat #Landscape

Cybersecurity #Pros Can’t Keep #Pace with #Threat #Landscape

Most (54%) cybersecurity professionals believe the threat landscape is evolving faster than they can respond, with a lack of preparation and strategic thinking endemic, according to RedSeal.

The network resilience vendor polled 600 IT and security decision makers in the UK and US to compile its RedSeal Resilience Report 2017.

It revealed that most respondents feel they are under-resourced (54%), can’t react quickly enough when an incident strikes (55%) and can’t access insight to prioritize incident response (79%).

Just 20% said they’re extremely confident their organization will be able to function as normal in the event of a breach or attack.

What’s more, there seems to be a dangerous disconnect between perceived strengths and reality.

Some 40% of respondents claimed ‘detection’ is their strongest capability, stating it takes an average of just six hours to spot an incident.

However, this flies in the face of many other industry reports, compiled by the likes of Mandiant (99 days) and Trustwave (49 days).

RedSeal also claimed that only a quarter of respondents test their cybersecurity incident response annually, with many saying it’s too resource intensive (29%), outside their budget (27%) or takes too long (26%).

“Their data networks are dynamic. This dynamic nature creates a risk,” RedSeal CEO Ray Rothrock told Infosecurity.

“Given that they report in our research that they last created a map of their entire network on average nine months ago, there’s no way to know precisely if their most valuable assets are accessible to bad actors at the present time. The lag in knowing what the network looks like and where data lives is a crucial factor in being ready for the inevitable.”

The report also revealed that compliance rather than strategy is driving IT security planning for the vast majority (97%) of organizations.

“On the cyber front, digital resilience — the ability to contain the bad guys when they’re inside your network, and protect high value assets like customer data and content from exfiltration — will protect your networks and your vital financial assets,” concluded Rothrock.

“So, it’s important to know your network inside out. Know what is important to your business and your customers, where it is, and make sure it’s secure. Operational resilience means not only being ready, but having a plan and procedures and then rehearsing that action plan.”
