Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily. Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, notably the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the EU, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents. For US banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer protections, which financial organizations must also uphold.

Cyberattacks are now a fact of life. Yet detection still lags. In 2015, the median amount of time attackers spent inside organizations before detection was 146 days. Why are we so vulnerable? MIT Technology Review asks Andrzej Kawalec, chief technology officer for HPE Security Services and Marshall Heilman, vice-president and executive director at Mandiant, a FireEye company, what we can do to make our systems more secure.

Research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by Oracle, provides answers. The results show that a proactive security strategy backed by a fully engaged C-suite and board of directors reduced the growth of cyber-attacks and breaches by 53% over comparable firms. These findings were compiled from responses by 300 firms, across multiple industries, against a range of attack modes and over a two-year period from February 2014 to January 2016. The lessons are clear. As cyber-attackers elevate their game, the response must be an enterprise solution. Only C-suites and boards of directors marshal the authority and resources to support a truly enterprise-wide approach. In sum, proactive cyber-security strategies, supported by senior management, can cut vulnerability to cyber-attack in half.

Cyber attackers are targeting the application programming interfaces (APIs) used by businesses to share data with customers. Consumer mobile adoption, electronic goods and services, and high volumes of data have led businesses to use APIs for data exchange. Unfortunately, attackers can also use APIs to access or deny service to valuable data and systems. This white paper explores strategies for protecting APIs. You’ll learn about APIs, how and why these endpoints are targets for web application attacks, security models, and how Akamai can help.

Human targeted attacks continued to lead the pack in 2016. Attackers’ used automation and personalisation to increase the volume and click-through rates of their campaigns. Taking a page from the B2B e-marketer’s playbook, cyber criminals are adopting marketing best practices and sending their campaigns on Tuesdays and Thursdays when click-through rates are higher. Meanwhile, BEC and credential phishing attacks targeted the human factor directly--no technical exploits needed. Instead, they used social engineering to persuade victims into sending money, sensitive information and account credentials. Timing is everything—attackers know that hitting your employees with a well-crafted email at the just the right time produces the best results. Of course, this varies by region. So if you are responsible for worldwide SecOps, you need visibility into not only attack patterns but also when and which employees tend to click.

Intrusion Detection Systems have ceased to live up to their name and have lost their ability to spot today’s sophisticated intrusions. Consequently, cyber attackers are taking advantage of it by launching more evasive and strategic threats that spread rapidly within networks. And security teams are left without the proper tools or insight to identify intrusions that pose the biggest risk.

Covert communications are key enablers of cyber attacks that allow remote humans to patiently manage and direct their attacks undetected. Attackers choose these vehicles specifically for their ability to evade signatures, malware sandboxes and reputation lists. To learn how Vectra empowers security teams to automatically pinpoint active cyber attacks as they’re happening, correlate threats with the hosts that are under attack, prioritize attacks that pose the greatest business risk, and quickly prevent or mitigate loss, register to get the white paper Detecting Covert Communications.

Unix and Linux build the foundation for most business-critical systems. Thus, these present target-rich environments for cyber-attackers. Privileged Access Management (PAM) helps to mitigate such risks. To succeed, organizations must follow an integrated approach, covering both privilege elevation and centralized management of shared account credentials.

When it comes to cybersecurity, you can only defend what you can see. Organizations continue to suffer breaches, oftentimes because they do not have continuous, real-time visibility of all their critical assets. With more data and applications moving to the cloud, IoT and other emerging technologies, the attack surface continues to expand, giving adversaries more blind spots to leverage. Watch a webinar with SANS where we examine how to: Discover, classify and profile assets and network communications Detect threats and decode content in real-time at wire speed Hunt for unknown threats via rich, indexable metadata Alter your terrain and attack surface with deception to slow down attackers By knowing your cyber terrain and increasing the risk of detection and cost to the adversary, you can gain a decisive advantage.

Adversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular, are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to “go on the hunt.” Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able t
