Research Report: How Enterprises Are Using IT Threat Intelligence

by Dark ReadingMay 29, 2019

Concerns over nation-state actors and other security threats are driving enterprises to rethink the way they collect and analyze cybersecurity data. A high percentage of organizations are seeking to augment their internal telemetry with external threat data so they can identify and respond to potential data compromises faster. However, collecting and analyzing threat intelligence is no easy task — early implementers report being slowed by manual data correlation and analysis processes.

Research Report: The State of IT Operations and Cybersecurity Operations

by Dark ReadingMay 13, 2019

Conventional wisdom about today's data centers holds that IT and network operations centers (NOCs) and security operations centers (SOCs) are separate organizations staffed by separate teams using different technologies. But in practice, IT operations and security operations are often tightly intertwined, involving overlapping functions and a wide range of common challenges.

How are today's IT operations teams working with security teams? Which functions are assigned to which teams, and how are their practices and technologies shared and connected?

In this survey, Dark Reading uncovered how IT operations and security teams work together, what technologies they are using, and how they communicate and share responsibility--or create risk by failing to do so.

Whitepaper: Enterprise Trojan Detections Spike 200% in Q1 2019

by Dark ReadingApr 26, 2019

Enterprise cyberattacks mean big bucks for cybercriminals, who targeted businesses with a wave of Trojans and ransomware attacks throughout 2018 into the first quarter of this year. Trojan detections on business endpoints in the first quarter of 2019 increased more than 200% from the fourth quarter of 2018, and almost 650% from the first quarter of 2018, researchers found in the Malwarebytes Q1 Cybercrime Tactics and Techniques report. The Emotet Trojan has made a "total shift" away from consumers as operators focus on business targets, researchers say, with the exception of a few outlier spikes. Read more today!

Research Report: The State of Cyber Security Incident Response

by Dark ReadingFeb 27, 2019

Every day, enterprises wrestle with cybersecurity compromises of all sizes and types, ranging from simple viruses to complex, targeted online attacks. To successfully defend their data, IT organizations are developing teams, tools, and processes to quickly respond to new cyber threats and compromises - but not all of them are succeeding. In this survey, we find out how enterprises are building their incident response teams and processes, how they research potential compromises, how they respond to new breaches, and what tools and processes they use to remediate problems and improve their cyber defenses for the future.

Research Report: How Enterprises Are Developing Secure Applications

by Dark ReadingFeb 25, 2019

Today's enterprises are writing, buying, and deploying more web applications than at any point in the history of computing. With the rapid growth of cloud services and mobile technology, applications are available everywhere -- sometimes outside of the traditional IT infrastructure. This evolution has taken place so rapidly that many IT organizations are having trouble keeping up. This often leads to "out-of-sync" security, technology, and application development groups - and ultimately increases the risk to the organization. Our survey examined some of the most common challenges associated with securing the applications that enterprises use every day - those that are developed internally, and those that are purchased via the web or off the shelf.
