Today, a range of diverse cyber-adversaries — including nation-states, cybercriminals, competitors, hacktivists, and insiders/contractors — pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
The business impact can include costly production downtime, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate secrets such as sensitive information about formulas and proprietary manufacturing processes.
The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives and IT/OT convergence to support the business — removing any “air-gaps” that may have existed in the past.
To help security and operations teams stay ahead of the latest ICS/SCADA threats, CyberX — the industrial cybersecurity company founded by military cyber experts with nation-state experience securing critical infrastructure — has partnered with SANS to create educational content about emerging ICS threat vectors and

Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices – desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems – to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls.
SymantecTM provides a complete endpoint solution powered by the world’s largest civilian Global Intelligence Network (GIN) to help organizations secure their enterprise and mobile workforce across traditional and modern OS devices used over any network and from any location.

Corporate governance. Capital Requirements. Information Security. Identifying and measuring potential risks help you connect the dots to create a sound ERM program for your organization.
In today’s environment of security regulations and requirements, organizations must take a comprehensive approach to ERM to identify and mitigate potential threats. Risk is cumulative, and unidentified weaknesses can quickly spiral out of control, resulting in costly solutions that can lead to reputational damage.
The first step in designing a sound ERM program is to understand which components are needed and how to implement them. Ten Steps to Enterprise Risk Management: A Comprehensive Approach Reveals the Big Picture, provides a straight-forward approach to creating a reliable, yet flexible program to address existing threats with the ability to adapt to emerging ones.
In the end risk management is everybody’s job – do you have a plan in place to help your employees manage unpredictable threats and
If you are relying on a basic log manager or spreadsheets to manage security alerts, you may be missing critical threats in your network. You could boost your team's productivity with a modern SIEM platform.
In this E-Book, you will learn the five most critical questions that you need to ask in order to determine the best security analytics solution for your organization.
Organizations globally realize that working only to prevent and detect cyberattacks will not protect them against cyber security threats. That is why IBM Resilient® was developed: to arm security teams with a platform for managing, coordinating, and streamlining incident response (IR) processes.
IBM Security has had the privilege of working with organizations of all sizes and across all industries as they implement Resilient solutions to develop more sophisticated and robust incident response functions. These organizations build IR processes that are consistent, repeatable, and measurable, rather than ad hoc. They make communication, coordination, and collaboration an organization-wide priority. They leverage technology that empowers the response team to do their job faster and more accurately
The increase in sophisticated, targeted security threats by
both external attackers and malicious insiders have made it
extremely difficult for organizations to properly protect
critical and sensitive information. The task of protecting these
assets has only grown harder as IT environments have become
more complex and widely distributed across geographic locations
and in the cloud.
Many recent high-profile breaches have one thing in common:
They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords.
In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through
various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the
kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for
weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience.
Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how
privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated
with their compromise an
"Managing and securing endpoints with conventional mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobile management (EMM) solutions is time-consuming and ineffective.
For this reason, global IT leaders are turning towards unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions to consolidate their management of smartphones, tablets, laptops and IoT devices into a single management console.
To increase operational efficiency, maximize data security and deliver on their digital transformation goals, they’ll need a UEM platform that does more than just promise success. The answer is a smarter solution, built for today, that brings new opportunities, threats, and efficiency improvements to the forefront.
With Watson™, IBM® MaaS360® UEM features cognitive insights, contextual analytics, and cloud-sourced benchmarking capabilities. It helps you make sense of daily mobile details while managing your endpoints, users, apps, document, and data from one platform."
Security has always been a fast-paced field, but lately the pace has been accelerating. Malware is rapidly evolving. The ways payloads are being delivered and deployed are changing, too. New attack tools and exploit techniques are appearing more regularly. It’s taking less time for them to gain widespread adoption. For all of those reasons, we thought it would be valuable to share additional insight into the threatscape we shared in the 2018 Critical Watch Report.
While threat prevention continues to improve with the use of advanced techniques, adversaries are outpacing these advances requiring security teams to implement threat detection and response programs. Security teams are often addressing the process haphazardly, using disconnected point tools and manual processes that consume too many analysts and result in slow mean-time to detection and response. While EDR has enabled security teams to take important steps forward for detection and response, ultimately it can only look at the endpoints which limits the scope of threats that can be detected and if something is detected, limits the view of who and what is affected and thus, how best to respond. ESG therefore recommends looking beyond the endpoint and utilizing natively integrated security solutions across more than just one vector to improve detection and response times. The more data you can knit together, the more effective you can be to uncover the security incidents most dangerous to your organization.
Watch this webinar to learn about the value of XDR: connecting detection and response across multiple security layers. Dave Gruber, senior analyst at ESG, shares recent research and his views on the evolution of threat detection and response; making the case for expanding the capabilities and expectations of detection and response solutions. Wendy Moore, VP of Product Marketing, discusses Trend Micro’s own XDR strategy and the unique value that Trend Micro can bring to detection, investigation and response.
Cybersecurity just isn't getting any easier. While protection technolgoies continue to advance at a rapid pace, so do the cybercriminals trying to circumvent them.
Rather than continuing further with the same approach to cybersecurity, it’s time to move to cybersecurity as a system. By enabling security products to share information and work together in real time you can stay ahead of the threats while also freeing up valuable IT resources.
This paper discusses the need for and details of a Zero Trust approach to network security. It also itemizes the essential criteria and capabilities required of a Zero Trust solution, explains how the Palo Alto Networks® next-generation security platform delivers on these requirements, and provides guidance on how to progressively migrate to a Zero Trust design.
The Modern Malware Review presents an analysis of 3 months of malware data derived from more than 1,000 live customer networks using WildFire™ (Palo Alto Networks™ feature for detecting and blocking new and unknown malware). The review focuses on malware samples that were initially undetected by industry-leading antivirus products.
Cybersecurity has become a leading topic both within and beyond the corporate boardroom. This attention is well-founded and marks a transition from information security being a concern primarily for businesses and governments to it being broadly acknowledged as an issue that impacts and requires the attention of everyone, from individual consumers to entire countries.
Without question, your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Often times, these applications span both personal and work related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored.

It’s time for Proactive Incident Response: *Full logs in the SIEM, plus complete collection of packet data *Packet data indexed, easily searchable and correlated with threat intelligence and other data. Working with multiple sources of security data, threats are detected early.
In today’s complex network environments, applications, infrastructure and threats are dynamic. As such, relying upon various, single-purpose security devices that don’t integrate with each other results in dangerous security gaps. These devices are poorly coordinated and unable to provide comprehensive security and threat prevention. To protect against today’s advanced attacks requires a natively integrated, next-generation approach to security – an approach that can keep up with the latest application and infrastructure trends and recognize and stop today’s most advanced threats.
