Cybercriminals have been upping their game this year; the use of file-less attacks with macros and PowerShell scripts to evade preventive defenses and sandboxes mean that they are getting better than ever at using phishing, social engineering and drive-by techniques to gain initial footholds in private domains – and once they arrive, they are often avoiding detection for extended periods of time. Between April and July 2018, Fidelis interviewed over 580 security professionals from around the globe to understand how they are shifting their detection strategies and how confident organizations are in their ability to not only prevent targeted attacks – but root out threats that have by-passed traditional preventive defenses.

With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more. With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information. Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.

A zero-day threat is a vulnerability that becomes known to the vendor on the same day it becomes known to the public, meaning IT assets targeted by a zero-day threat won't have a patch available when it's needed. However, zero-day attacks operate in a realm of the probable - they work only because there are exploitable vulnerabilities within IT systems. Many of these can, and should be prevented. This guide describes why organizations are vulnerable to zero-day attacks, and what you can do to add a zero-day offense to your existing vulnerability management processes to protect your organization's assets and data.

As fraudsters grow in sophistication and experience, they often aren’t acting alone. Syndicated crime rings are big business around the world. In the fraud economy, different fraudsters specialize in different aspects of the attack, from gathering data and creating profiles of targeted victims, to socially engineering call center agents, to creating tools like robotic dialers. These fraudsters might work alone, selling their skills on the black market. In other cases, fraudsters are running entire call centers overseas dedicated to executing attacks.

Cyber criminals constantly innovate their threat tactics to more efficiently breach organizations and make off with valuable data. As cybercrime evolves, we see increased innovation in the hacking tools and techniques used to evade known security mechanisms. In the past few years, we have seen more advanced, targeted attacks, where hackers spent ample time investigating the target and tailoring the threat. Keeping up with new attack techniques, and effectively defending against advanced threats, is perhaps the biggest challenge facing security teams today. In a world of cyberthreats where the only constant is change, architecting a cybersecurity solution that dynamically adapts to constant change is crucial.
