Webinar: How to think about cybersecurity the way executives think about business

It’s time to change the way we think about cybersecurity and risk management. Cybersecurity is no longer an IT problem to solve or a “necessary evil” to cost manage. Rather, cybersecurity has rapidly stormed the boardroom as a result of high-profile and costly data breaches.

webinar think about cybersecurity

Get the following insights from this webinar:

  • Recent events have changed our focus from protecting the perimeter
  • Risk management is a formula based on the cost of an undesirable outcome times the likelihood of its occurrence
  • Embracing cybersecurity as a factor in corporate risk management means firms can adapt quickly

Report: Hunting Evasive Malware

Today’s networks have more sophisticated automated defenses than ever, yet cybercriminals are taking full advantage of business disruptions and distractions in 2020. Adversaries are exploiting user behavior and leveraging trusted operating system tools to pursue “actions on objective” and evade detection. When used in combination, these techniques are effective at bypassing automated defenses to gain initial access.

Report Hunting Evasive Malware

Get new insights and defensive guidance from this Threat Intelligence Spotlight: Hunting Evasive Malware that draws on data from the 650-plus organizations that eSentire protects and VMware Carbon Black’s extensive endpoint protection install base.

Key insights of the report include:

  • Endpoint protection is more important today than ever before: the global pandemic has dramatically altered the security perimeter by forcing work-from-home models and accelerating the adoption of cloud services, weakening organizations’ security postures
  • Many malware campaigns employ User Exploitation and LOLBins (living-off-the-land binaries) to bypass automated defenses
  • In the first half of 2020, Zloader, Valak, SocGholish and More_eggs were observed successfully employing User Exploitation and LOLBin abuse to gain initial access
  • To increase open rates, threat actors have introduced messaging to target remote workers and take advantage of current events such as COVID-19 and global equal rights movements

Whitepapers: Stronger cybersecurity starts with CISSP

Emerging technologies have created amazing new organizational capabilities. But they also bring new complexities, interconnections and vulnerability points. The need for strong cybersecurity is strong. Your defenses need to be stronger.

The Role of (ISC)²

(ISC)² is the world’s largest nonprofit membership association of certified cybersecurity professionals. More than 150,000 members strong, we help train, certify and educate the front lines – the professionals organizations count on to protect their critical assets and mitigate cyber risks.

CISSP – The World’s Premier Cybersecurity Certification

You may know (ISC)² for our CISSP credential – five letters that inspire confidence for businesses around the globe. Like all (ISC)² certifications, the CISSP is accredited and vendor-neutral. It stands out as the premier credential for information security leaders, identifying those who possess the advanced skills required to design, implement and manage a best-in-class cybersecurity program.

Our latest white papers examine the expanding threat landscape and how cybersecurity can drive business growth with the right experts in place. Download the resource that speaks to you as a professional or team leader ready to secure the future.

Whitepaper: Mobile banking regulations, threats and fraud prevention

The usage of banking services through a mobile app has quickly been embraced by consumers. At the end of 2019, 74% of the UK and 75% of the US people used mobile devices to manage their finances.

whitepaper mobile banking regulations

To stay ahead of the competition, banks have developed mobile applications offering a wide variety of services to their clients. But when handling personal/financial data and conducting transactions, mobile apps are required to satisfy very high security standards.

Currently, researches indicate that mobile banking apps are often not as secure as expected. Furthermore, a recent analysis of data collected by RSA’s Fraud and Risk Intelligence team shows mobile app related fraud doubled in the first quarter of 2020.

In this whitepaper, you’ll find details on mobile banking usages, legal framework, risks, and solutions to secure mobile banking apps, from development to execution.

Download the whitepaper and learn more about:

  • Data protection legal requirements applicable to mobile banking apps
  • Modus operandi of mobile threats targeting financial apps
  • Fraud and data leakage prevention recommendations

Report: The cybersecurity impact of COVID-19

Cybersecurity company Cynet has released a report detailing changes in cyberattacks they’ve observed across North America and Europe since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

cynet report covid19

The report shares the cyberattack volume change observed across industry sectors, the increased use of spear phishing as an initial attack vector, and the approaches being used to distribute malware in spear phishing attacks.

Cybercriminals are pulling out their entire arsenal of new attack methods to best ensure attack success. In fact, Cynet found that new attacks jumped to roughly 35% of all attacks.

Another interesting observation in the report is a 250% spike in clients requesting expert assistance from their detection and response team.

Unfortunately, many companies do not yet have advanced detection and response technologies, such as Extended Detection and Response (XDR), or ongoing access to a 24×7 managed detection and response (MDR) team. When cyberattacks using new techniques spike as they are during this pandemic, companies without these advanced protections are at higher risk. We strongly recommend investigating both XDR and MDR solutions as way to future-proof and immunize your cybersecurity stack.

(ISC)² research: Why cybersecurity is a great choice for an exciting career

Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important as more businesses collect, share, and use more data as part of their practice. But you do not need to be a cybersecurity expert to understand that this is a booming industry. As breach after breach hits the headlines, it is clear to everyone that organizations need more professionals focused on cybersecurity.

How You Can Become a Cybersecurity Hero

Organizations from all industries and sectors are all seeking skilled security staff. Every role within IT has a cybersecurity aspect. Focusing on security as your primary role opens up a world of options.

Whether you are looking to work your way towards a CISO role or to work with brand new technologies, the only thing that will restrict your growth is your desire.

Hiring managers want to see a token of proof of your practical experience. Having a security certification can be one of the most crucial qualifications when applying for a cybersecurity position.

(ISC)² is the leader in security certifications and is acknowledged by companies worldwide. And the best way to start building your career in cybersecurity is by earning the (ISC)² Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification.

Earning SSCP certification helps you build your self-confidence and showcase a solid cybersecurity foundation, strong and versatile skillset, which will become a valuable asset to anyone seeking to make an impact and advance a career in the cybersecurity sector.
