MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes. Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern. Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.

Today’s most damaging security threats are not originating from malicious outsiders or malware but from trusted insiders - both malicious insiders and negligent insiders. This survey is designed to uncover the latest trends and challenges regarding insider threats as well as solutions to prevent or mitigate insider attacks. Our 400,000 member online community, Cybersecurity Insiders, in partnership with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, asked Crowd Research Partners to conduct an in-depth study of cybersecurity professionals to gather fresh insights, reveal the latest trends, and provide actionable guidance on addressing insider threat.

The attacks continue. The breaches occur. Penalties are assessed. While most universities manage to keep pace with the latest digital trends, they have been far less timely when it comes defending their networks and sensitive data against the latest targeted attacks and threats. This lack of protection is evident as recent headlines expose costly data breaches of student records and research, state and federal compliance violations, and a raft of other privacy and security issues that put students, alumni, staff, and the institutions themselves at considerable risk.

In today’s complex network environments, applications, infrastructure and threats are dynamic. As such, relying upon various, single-purpose security devices that don’t integrate with each other results in dangerous security gaps. These devices are poorly coordinated and unable to provide comprehensive security and threat prevention. To protect against today’s advanced attacks requires a natively integrated, next-generation approach to security – an approach that can keep up with the latest application and infrastructure trends and recognize and stop today’s most advanced threats.

Protecting a business – including its information and intellectual property, physical infrastructure, employees, and reputation – has become increasingly difficult. Online threats come from all sides: internal leaks and external adversaries; domestic hacktivists and overseas cybercrime syndicates; targeted threats and mass attacks. And these threats run the gamut from targeted to indiscriminate to entirely accidental. Like many security trends and frameworks, the early stages of adoption often involve inconsistent definitions, challenges with justification and management communication and an unknown path to implementation. In this white paper, we: • Review the current threatscape and why it requires this new approach • Offer a clarifying definition of what cyber threat Intelligence is • Describe how to communicate its value to the business and • Lay out some concrete initial steps toward implementing Intelligence-Led Security

Most organizations have a dirty little secret: they are relying on user and password-based authentication to protect sensitive internal applications. With 81% of data breaches involving weak or stolen credentials1, applications that use single-factor authentication are an easy target for attack. Unfortunately, updating internal cloud applications—as well as legacy and custom applications—to support multi-factor authentication can be an IT headache for many organizations. Okta and Palo Alto Networks have collaborated to make rolling out multi-factor authentication a snap. Join Daniel Lu, Product Marketing Manager at Okta and Kasey Cross, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Palo Alto Networks, to learn: >The latest trends in credential-based attacks >Why every sensitive cloud application needs multi-factor authentication >How to enforce network-level multi-factor authentication without touching your apps using Palo Alto Networks and Okta

The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

The state of threat intelligence in the information security community is still very immature. Many organizations are still combating threats in a reactive manner, only learning what they're dealing with, well...when they're dealing with it. There is a wealth of information in the community, and many organizations have been gathering data about attackers and trends for years. How can we share that information, and what kinds of intelligence are most valuable? In this presentation, we'll start with a brief overview of AlienVault's Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), and then we'll discuss attack trends and techniques seen in enterprise networks today, with supporting data from AlienVault OTX. We'll also take a look at some new models for collaboration and improving the state of threat intelligence going forward.
