In today’s security space, we’re all too familiar with the challenges presented by industry-wide shortages in talent, budget, and dedicated security infrastructure. Many insights from the LogRhythm 2018 Cybersecurity: Perceptions & Practices benchmark survey confirm this common understanding, yet one finding cuts to the core of the issue: Less than half of all surveyed organizations are able to detect a major cybersecurity incident within one hour. Even more concerning, less than one-third said that even if they detected a major incident they would be unable to contain it within an hour.
Information sharing is one of the most critical elements of any security strategy. Without it, security has to be painted with a broad brush where literally anything is possible. Being able to compare the device or network you are trying to protect against a set of threats that are known to be currently active is invaluable in pitting the right resources and countermeasures against the appropriate target.
Radware’s threat research group has detected a new malware masquerading as a downloadable painting application. Dubbed “Stresspaint,” within a few days it has infected over 40,000 users and stolen tens of thousands of Facebook credentials and cookies.

Machine learning has found application in a breadth of industries, from cancer detection to voice recognition to identity theft prevention. Perhaps unsurprisingly, cybersecurity is another area where machine learning can increase the efficiency and accuracy of operations.
This is a topic generating a lot of discussion at the RSA Conference – machine learning and the opportunities it presents for cybersecurity. While this idea is true, there are notes of caution that sometimes get overlooked. With this post, we’d like to share the opportunities, but perhaps more importantly, the dark underside of machine learning that can undermine its effectiveness.
Have you ever come across the term "network visibility" and wondered what it refers to—and what it means to you? Find out now with this engaging new ebook, Network Visibility for Dummies, which covers the concept from the ground up.
This insightful guide, produced by Ixia Solutions Group, covers using visibility to:
Email remains a primary attack vector for any organization, regardless of size or industry. Email-based attacks continue to succeed because malware authors keep developing new techniques that bypass both traditional and “next-generation” security tools, leaving your systems and data at risk.
Defending against the constant evolution of evasion techniques used by sophisticated malware requires deploying advanced malware detection technologies to identify malicious files hidden in email messages.
Download this solution guide to learn more about:
• Advanced malware that can easily fool even “Next-generation” email security technologies like SEGs and sandboxes with evasion techniques that bypass detection
• How Lastline Enterprise delivers complete visibility into the advanced malware that other technologies miss
User and entity-centric threats are a growing concern for security teams. In fact, according to the 2017 Verizon Breach Study, 69 percent of organizations report a recent insider data exfiltration attempt. Compounding matters, 91 percent of firms report inadequate insider threat programs.
It seems like every season has an angle that hackers and scammers use to prey on unsuspecting individuals. We just managed to make it through the holiday season and now we are besieged with people trying to take advantage of us during tax season.
IRS imposter scams are not new. Most of these tax scams involve either directed phishing email campaigns, or more frequently, calling individuals and claiming to be the IRS or a collection agency hired by the IRS. Many times these scammers even know the victim’s Social Security number and address because they have been taken from stolen data. Many even spoof IRS caller IDs so they seem legitimate.

Unless you’ve been entirely off the grid, you have probably heard that a number of high-profile organizations have recently been targeted by ransomware. It’s part of a growing trend that has the potential to impact large numbers of people, with potentially devastating consequences.
The notorious WannaCry virus, which has been targeting the same vulnerable systems for nearly a year, hit a major production plant on March 28th, and one of the country’s largest municipalities has been fighting off the SamSam ransomware for the past several days, something that the city’s mayor has called a “hostage situation.” Fortunately, it appears that only a handful of the manufacturers servers were impacted, and it didn’t impact any of their production lines. And this latest SamSam attack only targeted online bill paying and court-scheduling services. It could have been much worse.
