Webinar: Riding the vCISO Wave: How to Provide vCISO Services

Webinar: Riding the vCISO Wave: How to Provide vCISO Services
Jul 31, 2023 Virtual CISO
Demand for Virtual CISO services is soaring. According to Gartner, the use of vCISO services among small and mid-size businesses and non-regulated enterprises was expected to grow by a whopping 1900% in just one year, from only 1% in 2021 to 20% in 2022! Offering vCISO services can be especially attractive for MSPs and MSSPs. By addressing their customers' needs for proactive cyber resilience, they can generate a growing amount of recurring revenue from existing and new customers. And all while differentiating themselves from the competition. vCISO services also enable upselling of additional products and services the MSP or MSSP specializes in. However, not all MSPs and MSSPs fully understand how to provide vCISO services . Some may be unsure about which services are expected from them. Others may not realize they are already providing vCISO services and have the potential to effortlessly broaden their offerings into a complete vCISO suite or package it differently to make it more

Webinar — A MythBusting Special: 9 Myths about File-based Threats

Webinar — A MythBusting Special: 9 Myths about File-based Threats
Feb 15, 2023 Cybersecurity Webinar
Bad actors love to deliver threats in files. Persistent and persuasive messages convince unsuspecting victims to accept and open files from unknown sources, executing the first step in a cyber attack.  This continues to happen whether the file is an EXE or a Microsoft Excel document. Far too often, end users have an illusion of security, masked by good faith efforts of other users and (ineffective) security controls. This creates a virality effect for ransomware, malware, spyware, and annoying grayware and adware to be spread easily from user to user and machine to machine. To stop users from saying, "I reject your reality and substitute my own!" – it's time to bust some myths about file-based attacks.  Testing in three! Two! One!   Register here and join Zscaler's Vinay Polurouthu, Principal Product Manager, and Amy Heng, Product Marketing Manager, to: Bust the 9 most common assumptions and myths about file-based threats Uncover the latest evasion trends and d

How Nation-State Actors Target Your Business: New Research Exposes Major SaaS Vulnerabilities
Feb 15, 2024SaaS Security / Risk Management
With many of the highly publicized 2023 cyber attacks revolving around one or more SaaS applications, SaaS has become a cause for genuine concern in many boardroom discussions. More so than ever, considering that GenAI applications are, in fact, SaaS applications. Wing Security (Wing), a SaaS security company, conducted an analysis of 493 SaaS-using companies in Q4 of 2023.  Their study reveals  how companies use SaaS today, and the wide variety of threats that result from that usage. This unique analysis provides rare and important insights into the breadth and depth of SaaS-related risks, but also provides practical tips to mitigate them and ensure SaaS can be widely used without compromising security posture.  The TL;DR Version Of SaaS Security 2023 brought some now infamous examples of malicious players leveraging or directly targeting SaaS, including the North Korean group UNC4899, 0ktapus ransomware group, and Russian Midnight Blizzard APT, which targeted well-known organizat

WEBINAR: How to Get Enterprise Cyber Security for your Mid-Sized Organization

WEBINAR: How to Get Enterprise Cyber Security for your Mid-Sized Organization
May 21, 2019
High-quality cybersecurity posture is typically regarded as the exclusive domain of the large and heavy resourced enterprises – those who can afford a multi-product security stack and a skilled security team to operate it. This implies a grave risk to all organizations who are not part of this group, since the modern threat landscape applies to all, regardless of size and vertical. What is less commonly known is that by following basic and well-defined practices and wise security product choices, any organization can level up its defenses to a much higher standard. "At the end of the day it comes down to strategic planning," says Eyal Gruner, CEO and co-founder of Cynet, "rather than thinking in term of specific product or need, zoom out and breakdown the challenge to its logical parts – what do you need to do proactively on an on-going basis, while you're under attack and when you manage a recovery process." From the various frameworks of security b

Advanced Breach Protection Demystified – Untold Truths On Security Beyond AV

Advanced Breach Protection Demystified – Untold Truths On Security Beyond AV
Mar 28, 2019
Doing business in today's connected world means dealing with a continually evolving threat landscape. With potential losses due to downtime following a breach, plus valuable client and proprietary information at risk, most organizations realize they cannot afford to be complacent. This puts extra onus on security IT teams, who are continuously left scrambling, looking for the best way to protect their organizations against the threats that bypass AV and firewall. Added to this is another challenge in that most organizations are limited in the resources they can invest in security. Many are left reliant on a single product on top of their security stack. Common practice in organizational security circles as they attempt to remain secure is to upgrade endpoint protection with EPP\EDR or a Network Analytic tool. But as we all know, what's common is not necessarily what's best. How can an organization ensure it remains secure, especially with all that is at stake?

Learn How XDR Can Take Breach Protection Beyond Endpoint Security

Learn How XDR Can Take Breach Protection Beyond Endpoint Security
Feb 19, 2019
How do you know whether an attacker has infiltrated your network? Can you really rely on an Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution to be your go-to technology for identifying security breaches? Endpoint detection and response (EDR) platform has been an important technology to detect cybersecurity incidents, but it provides only the view of endpoints, just a portion of the big picture. Since hackers can explore and exploit anything within reach, not just a few monitored endpoints, many security professionals are reaching the realization that the actual attack surface of their organizations is significantly wider than only endpoints. In an ideal and more effective approach to security, a broader set of attack vectors and activity data should be examined to get a more complete view of the attack operation. On top of the endpoint, security solutions must also include cloud, threat intelligence, network data, and logging information, among others. If you haven't already,

How to Secure Your Mid-Size Organization From the Next Cyber Attack

How to Secure Your Mid-Size Organization From the Next Cyber Attack
Jan 15, 2019
If you are responsible for the cybersecurity of a medium-sized company , you may assume your organization is too small to be targeted. Well, think again. While the major headlines tend to focus on large enterprises getting breached – such as Sony, Equifax, or Target the actual reality is that small and mid-sized companies are experiencing similar threats. According to Verizon's 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, fifty-eight percent of malware attack victims are SMBs. Added to this is the fact that attack vectors that target small and medium-sized businesses are growing increasingly sophisticated, which makes securing them respectively challenging, and the trend of targeting ransomware campaigns on smaller organizations, as attackers assume smaller outfits are more likely to quickly pay in order to avoid damage to their business and reputation. Cisco's 2018 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study states that 44 percent of cyber attacks cost organizations over $500,000 i
