Using Internet Data Sets to Understand Digital Threats

As businesses adapt to the rapidly changing digital landscape, more customer and business operations are shifting from behind the protection of firewalls to the open internet. This new level of exposure makes your company, customers, and prospects vulnerable to the extremely skilled persistent threats across the web, mobile, social, and email.

Fortunately, Internet data can be sorted, classified, and monitored over time to create highly connected data sets that provide a complete picture of your attackers and their evolving techniques. Security professionals must leverage the relationships between these data sets to surface new connections, group similar attack activity, and substantiate assumptions during incident response.

In this white paper, we’ll explore the technique of infrastructure chaining, and explore the data sets available to security professionals such as:

  • Passive DNS
  • WHOIS
  • SSL Certificates
  • Analytical Trackers
  • Host Sequence Pairs
  • Web Components
  • Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)

Email Security in a Zero Trust World

To tackle today’s cyber threats, IT security leaders must rethink traditional security strategies. Email security in particular has become a victim of its own success and requires a radical rethink, having played a key role in several high-profile security breaches.

Today’s threats, like spear-phishing, are designed to bypass traditional Secure Email Gateway defenses, often taking advantage of end users who are considered the weakest link in business email security armor. A zero-trust approach to email security is needed.

This white paper discusses how:

  • CISO’s should carefully assess email security as part of a strategic security review
  • IT Managers can evaluate the state of current email defenses and take tactical action to strengthen them
  • Security Administrators can deliver best-practice defense in depth for email
  • Organizations can remove a reliance on trust to more effectively protect information, their network and employees

Employee Social Network Password Practices a Major Workplace Risk

Millions of employees using social media accounts represent a major workplace risk if/when those accounts are compromised. Once hacked, a social network account can easily provide access to information that gives hackers access to other facets of users’ lives, such as their work computers and email accounts.

To make matters worse, large social networks don’t remind or make clear to users the risks associated with weak passwords, or never changing their passwords. In fact, new social network platforms allow for a single logon that is linked to multiple social media accounts so that users can avoid having to remember multiple passwords for multiple accounts.

This is why you should get the RSA Survey Report & Executive Summary now

  • You'll get important highlights from the RSA Survey key findings.
  • You'll get a great list of free, professional password security tools.
  • You'll learn details about the disconnect between security professionals and their own cybersecurity habits (and maybe some of yours too).
  • You'll get excellent recommendations on how you can protect your user and privileged account credentials by implementing proven password security best practices and using automated tools.
