Bon nombre de propriétaires de PME pensent que cela n’arrive qu’aux autres et que leur entreprise est trop petite pour être la cible de piratages, d’attaques par rançongiciel et d’autres types de cybercriminalité. D’autres sont conscients de l’importance de la cybersécurité, mais estiment qu’ils n’ont pas les ressources nécessaires pour en faire une priorité. Ce sont là quelques-unes des raisons pour lesquelles pas moins de 90 % des PME n’ont pas établi de système de protection pour leurs données ou celles de leurs clients.
Despite massive spend to protect enterprise digital assets, security breaches are still on the rise. The disconnect between the level of investment and the volume and impact of attacks is largely attributed to outdated approaches that favor perimeter protection and point solutions despite a digital supply chain that is more distributed than ever. For these reasons and more, enterprises need to start thinking differently about cybersecurity. Security doesn’t need new products. It needs a new model. One that applies the principles of intrinsic security across the fabric of the organization, from the sales floor to the C-suite, from the infrastructure to the endpoint device. In this Essential Guidance executive brief, learn how intrinsic security differs from traditional security methods, and the steps CIOs need to take to operationalize this model for greater business agility without greater risk.
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.¹
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.

Today, privileges are built into operating systems, file systems, applications, databases, hypervisors,
cloud management platforms, DevOps tools, robotic automation processes, and more. Cybercriminals
covet privileges/privileged access because it can expedite access to an organization’s most sensitive
targets. With privileged credentials and access in their clutches, a cyberattacker or piece of malware
essentially becomes an “insider”.
"Safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in today’s assumed- breach world.
Over 6,500 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2018 alone, exposing over 5 billion records—a large majority of which included usernames and passwords.1 This wasn’t new to 2018 though, as evidenced by
the existence of an online, searchable database of 8 billion username and password combinations that have been stolen over the years (https://haveibeenpwned.com/), keeping in mind there are only 4.3 billion people worldwide that have internet access.
These credentials aren’t stolen just for fun—they are the leading attack type for causing a data breach. And the driving force behind the majority of credential attacks are bots—malicious ones—because they enable cybercriminals to achieve scale. That’s why prioritizing secure access and bot protection needs to be part of every organ

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.

Businesses in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region manage many disparate security tools, frequently without a centralized information management platform. They also suffer a deluge of threat alerts, although only a small percentage of these require further investigation.
"This Ovum white paper is sponsored by Juniper Networks. It reveals that organisations need to update and upgrade their cybersecurity postures to defend themselves against today's threats.
More than 80% of organisations in Asia are not protected against today's threats. Many of them depend on security investments made years ago, which cannot defend against new and emerging threats. The arrival of new technologies including cloud computing, the Internet of Things, mobility, bring your own device (BYOD), and social media have massively increased attack surfaces and expanded the threat landscape.
Over the past two years, there has been a global infestation of ransomware attacks, which have wrought destruction across a growing number of businesses. Crypto-jacking, attacks on critical infrastructure, and data exfiltration are now commonly affecting businesses and consumers alike. The financial impact of these attacks is increasing rapidly and has already cost some organisations hundreds o

Building on the popular Threat of the Month series, Cisco researchers looked at notable 2018 cybersecurity incidents with a fresh perspective: what do they reveal about future adversary tactics? With this lens, they chose threats that best embody what defenders should expect in the year ahead. The report contains in-depth analysis, best practices, and trends to watch.
In 2018, the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) completed a research survey of 450 cybersecurity, IT, and networking security professionals with knowledge of or responsibility for the policies, processes, and controls used for remote office/branch office (ROBO) security. This report is the summary of ESG's conclusions from the study.
AI is not a trend! Cisco has been doing it for years to help businesses across the globe quickly and easily identify banking trojans, botnets, phishing and ransomware. In this recorded webinar, we go beyond the hype.
"We live and surf in a cyber world where attacks like APT, DDOS, Trojans and Ransomware are common and easy to execute. Domain names are an integral part of any business today and apparently an integral part of an attacker's plan too.
Domain names are carriers of malwares, they act as Command and Control servers and malware's ex-filtrate data too. In today's threat landscape - predicting threats, spotting threats and mitigating them is super crucial.. This is called Visibility and Analytics.
Watch this on demand session with our Cisco cloud security experts Shyam Ramaswamy and Fernando Ferrari as they talk about how Cisco Umbrella and The Umbrella Research team detect anomalies, block threats and identify compromised hosts. The experts also discuss how effectively Cisco spot, react, filter out IOC, block the network communications of a malware; identify and stop a phishing campaign (unknown ones too).

2017 and 2018 were not easy years to be a CIO or CISO, and 2019 isn’t showing any signs of being easier. With so many career-ending-level data breaches in 2017 (e.g., Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, to name a few) and with the stronger regulatory requirements worldwide, CIOs/CISOs have a corporate responsibility to rethink their approach to data security. Regulatory compliance aside, companies have a responsibility to their customers and shareholders to protect data, and minimize its exposure not only to external attackers but also to employees. The most common method of data breach in 2017 was a phishing email sent to a company’s internal employees (See 2017 Data Breach Investigation Report), This makes employees unwillingly complicit in the data breach. Over 80% of successful cyberattacks have a critical human element that enabled them. The average employee who opens the innocent-looking attachment or link, is unintentionally jeopardizing a company’s data. While there is no 100% protection, th
2017 war kein einfaches Jahr für einen CIO / CISO, und auch 2018 gibt es derzeit keine Anzeichen dafür, dass es einfacher wird. Bei so vielen Datenverstößen, die sogar Karrieren beendeten, allein im Jahr 2017 (Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, um nur einige zu nennen) und mit weltweit verschärften regulatorischen Anforderungen haben CIOs / CISOs die unternehmerische Verantwortung, ihren Ansatz zur Datensicherheit zu überdenken.
Abgesehen von der Einhaltung gesetzlicher Vorschriften sind Unternehmen gegenüber ihren Kunden und Aktionären verp?ichtet, Daten zu schützen und ihre Gefährdung nicht nur gegenüber externen Angreifern, sondern auch gegenüber Mitarbeitern zu minimieren. Die im Jahr 2017 am häu?gsten genutzte Methode für Datendiebstahl war das Phishing, welches sich an interne Mitarbeiter von Unternehmen richtete (siehe Report zur Untersuchung von Datenverstößen im Jahr 2017). Damit wurden diese Mitarbeiter unwissentlich mitschuldig an der Datenverletzung: Über 80% der erfolgreichen Cyber-An
