Live Webinar: Reducing Complexity by Increasing Consolidation for SMEs

Live Webinar: Reducing Complexity by Increasing Consolidation for SMEs

Nov 13, 2020
Complexity is the bane of effective cybersecurity. The need to maintain an increasing array of cybersecurity tools to protect organizations from an expanding set of cyber threats is leading to runaway costs, staff inefficiencies, and suboptimal threat response. Small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with limited budgets and staff are significantly impacted. On average, SMEs manage more than a dozen different security tools, making it very difficult for security teams to manage and orchestrate. SMEs are, understandably, looking to consolidate their security tools to make cybersecurity more manageable and cost-effective. The challenge for these companies is to figure out how to consolidate cybersecurity tools without losing needed protections safely. An upcoming webinar is set to help SMEs with this very issue ( sign up here ). The Cybersecurity Complexity Problem Cannot Be Overemphasized Over the past decade (at least), CISOs have continuously lobbied for increased cybersecurity
LIVE Webinar on Zerologon Vulnerability: Technical Analysis and Detection

LIVE Webinar on Zerologon Vulnerability: Technical Analysis and Detection

Sep 29, 2020
I am sure that many of you have by now heard of a recently disclosed critical Windows server vulnerability—called  Zerologon —that could let hackers completely take over enterprise networks. For those unaware, in brief, all supported versions of the Windows Server operating systems are vulnerable to a critical privilege escalation bug that resides in the  Netlogon Remote Control  Protocol for Domain Controllers. In other words, the underlying vulnerability ( CVE-2020-1472 ) could be exploited by an attacker to compromise Active Directory services, and eventually, the Windows domain without requiring any authentication. What's worse is that a proof-of-concept exploit for this flaw was released to the public last week, and immediately after, attackers started exploiting the weakness against unpatched systems in the wild. As described in our  coverage  based on a technical analysis published by Cynet security researchers, the underlying issue is Microsoft's implementation of

10,000 Victims a Day: Infostealer Garden of Low-Hanging Fruit

Jul 15, 2024Cyber Crime / Data Protection
Imagine you could gain access to any Fortune 100 company for $10 or less, or even for free. Terrifying thought, isn't it? Or exciting, depending on which side of the cybersecurity barricade you are on. Well, that's basically the state of things today. Welcome to the infostealer garden of low-hanging fruit. Over the last few years, the problem has grown bigger and bigger, and only now are we slowly learning its full destructive potential. In this article, we will describe how the entire cybercriminal ecosystem operates, the ways various threat actors exploit data originating from it, and most importantly, what you can do about it. Let's start with what infostealer malware actually is. As the name suggests, it's malware that... steals data. Depending on the specific type, the information it extracts might differ slightly, but most will try to extract the following: Cryptocurrency wallets Bank account information and saved credit card details Saved passwords from various apps Bro

In today's business environment, data is what matters most. It matters to organizations that monetize it into operational insights and optimisations, and it matters the threat actors that relentlessly seek to achieve similar monetisation by compromising it. In the very common scenario in which organisation A provides services to organization B, it's imperative for the latter to be absolutely sure that the former handles its data in the most secure way. While there's no one-size-fits-all in cybersecurity, there are various frameworks that provide robust guidelines for organizations to see if the security controls in place indeed address their needs. NIST cybersecurity framework is a good example of such guidelines. There are industry specific standards, such as HIPPA for healthcare and PCI-DSS for credit card processing. However, in recent years, SOC 2 is gaining momentum in the US as a general standard for all organizations that store or process data for consumers and busi
