A year in cybersecurity is often marked by how disruptive the activity observed was — not just from a destructive standpoint, but also from the perspective of whether day-to-day life was affected. By any such measure, 2019 was an active year. From U.S. school districts to asset management firms, from manufacturing to media, ransomware attacks affected multitudes of people. Disruption in 2019 was not punctuated by a single destructive wiper; rather, it was plagued by sustained operations targeting the underpinnings of our society. The particularly disruptive impact that ransomware had across all sectors is addressed at the beginning of this report, followed by an assessment of additional eCrime threats.

All organizations can be the target of ransomware, where users’ files or computers are taken hostage or system access is hindered until a ransom demand is met. And although big game hunting is on the rise — where ransomware operators target large enterprise organizations to gain huge payouts — ransomware is frequently aimed at small and medium-sized organizations, including state and local governments, which are often more vulnerable to attacks. Organizations of all shapes and sizes should continue to stay alert and on top of their security. This paper explains the impact of ransomware on small and medium-sized organizations, explores factors that lead to increased vulnerability and offers advice on how to protect and secure your organization.

There’s no question that ransomware is a growing threat. High-profile attacks that crippled multiple U.S. cities, including Baltimore, Maryland, and Park City, Utah, made headlines in 2019. However, those attacks reflect only the public side of a much larger cybercriminal industry that is constantly innovating its capabilities. In fact, ransomware is one of the fastest growing threats in cybersecurity, with damages predicted to build to $20 billion globally by 2021, up from “only” $345 million in 2015. This paper explains the evolution of ransomware by breaking down the new trends in online extortion threats, and provides prescriptive advice on how to protect and secure your organization against such an attack.

Attackers have been moving away from the “spray and pray” attack approach, a method which was widely used in past years to successfully spread ransomware to a large number of organizations. While successful in the initial infection of the organizations, many infected machines were attached to less critical or valuable systems, meaning organizations would often not pay the ransom and were also alerted to security vulnerabilities – which they then repaired. With organizations on high-alert for attack and in?ltration, hackers found it more difficult to infect organizations and experienced a reduced success rate in many attacks. To combat this low success rate, attackers changed tactics, now spending more time and resources developing more powerful malware, targeting more valuable systems and more lucrative industries and organizations. The end-result was fewer organizations suffering crippling attacks, but signi?cantly higher and more consistent ransomware payouts.

Cloud applications, such as Office 365 and G Suite, offer improved productivity but leave users susceptible to new forms of attacks. Network architectures not configured for direct-to-Internet connectivity cannot adapt to meet these security concerns that arise from greater SaaS adoption. Cloud-delivered security offers many advantages to meet the demands of SaaS and move beyond accepting network security as “almost safe.” A critical component of this modern security architecture is web isolation—the practice of moving the threat of attack away from the endpoint and into the cloud.

"As digital innovations such as widespread adoption of public clouds transform the very nature of our business, the impacts of these changes on the corporate network are rapidly escalating. To adapt to these changes, many organizations are embracing SD-WAN with its promise to deliver direct cloud access, better application performance, greater agility and lower cost. But while these benefits are achievable, they can all too easily be negated by a failure to consider the inherent security implications of an expanded attack surface, and increased vulnerability to sophisticated, targeted attacks. This White Paper expands on the various benefits and challenges and shows how to navigate a path to successful implementation. Read more."

Have you heard of Gandcrab ransomware? The creators of this nasty string of code earned $2.5 million per week as they successfully encrypted the data of both small and large enterprises alike, forcing them to pay out their atrocious ransom demands. Then there was Nanocore, a remote access trojan, that successfully spread its tentacles into governments and banks in order to prey on highly sensitive information. The only rational conclusion that you can make from these attacks is that no industry is immune, no location beyond reach, and no enterprise safe from attack.

With large sprawling networks, and a variety of communication protocols being deployed at retail stores (wireless LANs, GPRS, Bluetooth, NFC, RFID and cellular technologies among them), the entry points for attacks have multiplied substantially. Add to that list various connected applications, more digital touchpoints, smart appliances and infrastructure, in-store associates’ devices, and customers’ mobile phones and we begin to see the magnitude of not just the risk, but the complexity involved in safely yet efficiently managing the network environment.

And then imagine processing power strong enough to make sense of all this data in every language and in every dimension. Unless you’ve achieved that digital data nirvana (and you haven’t told the rest of us), you’re going to have some unknowns in your world. In the world of security, unknown threats exist outside the enterprise in the form of malicious actors, state-sponsored attacks and malware that moves fast and destroys everything it touches. The unknown exists inside the enterprise in the form of insider threat from rogue employees or careless contractors – which was deemed by 24% of our survey respondents to pose the most serious risk to their organizations. The unknown exists in the form of new devices, new cloud applications, and new data. The unknown is what keeps CISOs, what keeps you, up at night – and we know because we asked you.

When it comes to the threat landscape, it’s important to take a look in the rearview mirror once in a while. As with driving, not only do you get a good look at what’s behind you, but you can often spot what’s coming up quick, set to overtake you. That’s the spirit of this threat report. We’ve picked out five key stories from the last year or so, not just because they were big events, but because we think these threats, or similar ones, could very well appear in the near future. Take modular threats like Emotet and VPNFilter, for example. These are threats that can deliver an on-demand menu of attacks and threats, depending on which device is infected or the intended goal of the attacker. We saw plenty of such modular threats in recent history, and wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in the future. Email remains the darling delivery method of attackers, with threats from cryptomining to Emotet using it to spread. It’s also highly likely that other threats, such as unauthorized M

Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
