by N2K Networks
10M ago
With the relentless advancements in technology and a workforce more digitally-enabled than ever before, businesses today face an unprecedented challenge of protecting their sensitive information from cybercriminals. Infostealer malware, often disguised as innocuous files or hidden within legitimate-looking emails, stealthily infiltrate employee and contractor devices – managed and unmanaged – exfiltrating all manner of data for the purposes of executing follow-on attacks including ransomware. The data at risk includes customer details, financial information, intellectual property, and R&D ..read more

What is data centric security and why should anyone care?
CyberWire-X
by N2K Networks
1y ago
In today’s world, conventional cyber thinking remains largely focused on perimeter-centric security controls designed to govern how identities and endpoints utilize networks to access applications and data that organizations possess internally. Against this backdrop, a group of innovators and security thought leaders are exploring a new frontier and asking the question: shouldn’t there be a standard way to protect sensitive data regardless of where it resides or who it’s been shared with? It’s called “data-centric” security and it’s fundamentally different from “perimeter-centric” security mod ..read more

“Shift Left”: A case for threat-informed pentesting.
CyberWire-X
by The CyberWire
1y ago
Penetration testing is a vital part of a robust security program, but the traditional pentesting model is in a rut. Assessments happen infrequently, the scope is often very broad, and the report is usually overwhelming. What if you could increase the overall ROI of your pentesting program and avoid these limitations? Every penetration test should have specific goals. Coverage of the MITRE ATT&CK framework or the OWASP Top Ten is a great start, but a pentest could provide exponential value by applying a more strategic approach. In this episode of CyberWire-X, the CyberWire’s Rick Howard and ..read more

Commercial threat intelligence proves invaluable for the public sector.

1y ago
Historically, the U.S. government has relied almost solely on its own intelligence analysis to inform strategic decisions. This has been especially true surrounding geopolitical events and nation-level cybersecurity situations. However, the explosion of assets being connected to the internet, along with the fact that most critical infrastructure is owned by private sector organizations, means that commercially developed cyber threat intelligence is being generated at a faster pace than ever before. In the Russia/Ukraine conflict, we saw how commercially generated satellite intelligence played ..read more

Cyber confidence: Knowing what you have and where it is.
CyberWire-X
by The CyberWire
1y ago
Between multi-cloud deployments, more employees working remotely, and increasing use of SaaS applications, the number of entry points for attackers to infiltrate your systems has exploded. But gaining visibility into all these possible attack vectors is time-consuming and often incomplete or just a snapshot in time. If the first rule of cyber is to “know what you have,” how can cyber professionals get a comprehensive, current picture of their assets? How can they feel confident that they understand which assets may be more vulnerable and prioritize defenses accordingly? In the first half of th ..read more

Pentest reporting and the remediation cycle: Why aren’t we making progress?
CyberWire-X
by The CyberWire
1y ago
The age-old battle between offensive and defensive security practitioners is most often played out in the penetration testing cycle. Pentesters ask, “Is it our fault if they don’t fix things?” While defenders drown in a sea of unprioritized findings and legacy issues wondering where to even start. But the real battle shouldn’t be between the teams; it should be against the real adversaries. So why do pentesters routinely come back and find the same things they reported a year ago? Do the defenders just not care or does the onus fall on the report? Everyone really wants the same thing: better s ..read more
