July 2014- As the Internet has evolved to become a primary channel of trade and commerce, so has the sophistication of criminal organizations and other perpetrators of fraudulent schemes who take advantage of domain privacy features as a means by which to mask their true identity. Domain privacy, a controversial topic since its introduction in 2003, provides domain owners with the option to substitute the registrar's contract information for their own. While there are a variety of legitimate ...
July 2014- Cybercrime represents a major threat to both government and businesses, costing the economy hundreds of billions of dollars in losses every year. Often, the most challenging part for an investigator is discovering the who behind an attack. Is it a coordinated attack orchestrated by a criminal syndicate or an amateur hacker looking for a backdoor into your network? If the actual individual cannot be identified-as is too often the case-then investigators can build a Threat ...
April 2014- In 2013 much attention was focused on cyber-espionage, threats to privacy and the acts of malicious insiders. However the end of 2013 provided a painful reminder that cybercrime remains prevalent and that damaging threats from cybercriminals continue to loom over businesses and consumers. Eight breaches in 2013 each exposed greater than 10 million identities, targeted attacks increased and end-user attitudes towards social media and mobile devices resulted in wild scams and laid a foundation for major problems for end-users ...
Modern day attackers are launching increasingly more sophisticated, targeted attacks designed to evade signature-based security technologies. Despite having made significant investment in a range of protection technologies, security leaders still wonder whether their network has been infiltrated, how far the threats have spread and which assets have been compromised.
The traditional approach of relying on disparate network and endpoint protection technologies is no longer enough. Detecting advanced targeted attacks requires an integrated, multi-layered ...

APTs (advanced persistent threats) have changed the world of enterprise security and how networks and organizations are attacked. These threats, and the cyber-criminals behind them, are experts at remaining hidden from traditional security while exhibiting an intelligence, resiliency, and patience that has never been seen before.
Controlling these threats requires multiple security disciplines working together in context. While no single solution will solve the problem of advanced threats on its own, next-generation security ...
July 2014- Firewalls enforce network access via a positive control model, where only specific traffic defined in policies is granted access to the network while all other traffic is denied. Access Control Lists (ACLs) initially performed this functionality, often in routers, but their rudimentary approach gave way to dedicated packet filtering and stateful inspection firewall devices that offered deeper levels of access controls. Unfortunately, these traditional firewalls shared a common shortcoming - an inability to see all ...
June 2014- Learn the three key questions you should be asking your DNS host when it comes to protection against DDoS Attacks.

However, there is one overwhelming question that is still causing many CIOs and their colleagues to delay their move to cloud: Is cloud computing secure? As many unwary businesses have ...
June 2014- With the evolution of IP surveillance technology, the emphasis has moved from simple monitoring of video footage to intelligent systems that are capable of identifying abnormal events or monitoring behaviour. As intelligence increases in these systems, so too do the applications for this technology. Consolidating all applications within an organisation onto a single infrastructure provides many benefits but can also pose many challenges. To learn more about how to overcome these challenges and make the ...

June 2014- Financial institutions, commercial enterprises and government organizations are all prime targets for cybercrime. Malicious software, or malware, is the primary attack tool used by cybercriminals to execute account takeover attacks, steal credentials and personal information, and initiate fraudulent transactions. The attack tactics, or crime logic, are constantly becoming more sophisticated so they can continue to exploit human and system weaknesses. Fraud-, risk- and IT-security professionals are looking to establish an effective defense against these attacks.
June 2014- The malware industry supplies all the components cybercriminals need to easily perpetrate malware-driven financial fraud and data theft. In today's virtual world, the scope of organizations vulnerable to malware-driven cybercrime is quite broad.

June 2014- DDoS attacks against high-tech firms have started to take a dangerous turn. It's called DDoS smokescreening - attackers using DDoS as a distraction while they insert malware or viruses to pilfer money, data and intellectual property. This is just one insight in Neustar's 2014 Annual DDoS Attacks and Impact Survey. The resulting report compares DDoS findings from 2013 to 2012, based on a survey of 440 North American companies, including 139 businesses delivering technology products and/or services such as ...

June 2014- "Trust" does not mean giving employees unrestricted and unnecessary access to information. With the right security controls, organizations can significantly reduce their exposure to the risk of insider threats. The key is to find the right balance between employee enablement and control, while holding employees accountable for their actions. This requires a broad approach to allow an organization to carefully manage its identities, access and data, from identity management, to governance, privileged identity management and ...
