Live Cybersecurity Webinar — Deconstructing Cobalt Strike

Live Cybersecurity Webinar — Deconstructing Cobalt Strike
June 11, 2021The Hacker News
Organizations' cybersecurity capabilities have improved over the past decade, mostly out of necessity. As their defenses get better, so do the methods, tactics, and techniques malicious actors devise to penetrate their environments. Instead of the standard virus or trojan, attackers today will deploy a variety of tools and methods to infiltrate an organization's environment and attack it from the inside. In an interesting twist of fate, one of the tools organizations have used to audit and improve their defenses has also become a popular tool attackers use to infiltrate. Cobalt Strike is an Adversary Simulation and Red Team Operations tool that allows organizations to simulate advanced attacks and test their security stacks in a close-to-real-world simulation. A new research webinar from XDR provider Cynet ( register here ) offers a better look at Cobalt Strike. The webinar, led by Cyber Operations Analyst for the Cynet MDR Team Yuval Fischer, will take a deep dive into the thr

Live Webinar: Reducing Complexity by Increasing Consolidation for SMEs

Live Webinar: Reducing Complexity by Increasing Consolidation for SMEs
November 13, 2020The Hacker News
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
September 29, 2020The Hacker News
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

Gain the Trust of Your Business Customers With SOC 2 Compliance

Gain the Trust of Your Business Customers With SOC 2 Compliance
June 19, 2019The Hacker News
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

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, 2019The Hacker News
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
March 28, 2019The Hacker News
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
February 19, 2019The Hacker News
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
January 15, 2019Mohit Kumar
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
