Most large organizations address network security with an army of tactical point tools like firewalls, VPN gateways, IDSs/IPSs, network proxies, malware sandboxes, web and e-mail gateways, etc. This messy array of independent technologies was adequate ten years ago, but now presents a plethora of operational, policy enforcement, and monitoring challenges. Worse yet, network security defenses are becoming less and less effective at blocking targeted and sophisticated threats and advanced malware attacks.

The discovery of the Heartbleed bug in April, 2014 exposed a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, an open-source cryptographic library often used with applications and web servers like Apache and Nginx. This latest high profile, targeted attack allowed infiltrators access to the memory of web servers running vulnerable versions of the library. Heartbleed quickly compromised the privacy for communications applications on the Web such as e-commerce, banking, email, and instant messaging, and opened the door to the interception of user information, passwords, and identities. While the world now knows of the widespread havoc Heartbleed has caused to both businesses and individuals, it begs the question, “What happens when the next Heartbleed (or worse) comes along, and what can an organization do to weather yet another chapter in an all-too-familiar string of debilitating attacks?

Without trust, no website or online service can succeed in the competitive online marketplace. This year has seen a spate of breaches that have targeted the systems of Certificate Authorities (CAs), the companies that prove websites and services are secure and safe to use. Some of these attacks have undermined the trusting relationship between users and even well-known online brands. The changing security landscape has demonstrated not all CAs are the same, and choosing the right CA is critical to running and maintaining a safe and trusted online business. This white paper looks at the role of CAs in web security, including what measures a CA can take to promote trust in its certificates and the criteria to consider when choosing the best CA for the job.

Financial services companies have been the target of a serious, sustained, and well-funded DDoS campaign for more than a year. What these attacks have continued to demonstrate is that DDoS will continue to be a popular and increasingly complex attack vector. DDoS is no longer simply a network issue, but is increasingly a feature or additional aspect of other advanced targeted attacks. The motivation of modern attackers can be singular, but the threat landscape continues to become more complex and mixes various threats to increase the likelihood of success. There have certainly been cases where the MSSP was successful at mitigating against an attack but the target Website still went down due to corruption of the underlying application and data. In order to defend networks today, enterprises need to deploy DDoS security in multiple layers, from the perimeter of their network to the provider cloud, and ensure that on-premise equipment can work in harmony with provider networks for effective and robust attack mitigation

In this white paper, John Pescatore of SANS Institute explores how DDoS is used as part of advanced targeted attacks (ATAs) and describes how DDoS detection and prevention tools and techniques can be used against ATAs as well. Today’s DDoS attacks, as damaging as they are, sometimes mask even more threatening and dangerous advanced targeted threats. The good news is that some of the same tools that can detect the footprints of DDoS attacks can also find the telltale signs of ATAs. To be successful, though, enterprises need to coordinate their use of both types of logs and adjust their monitoring parameters correctly. They must also eliminate operational gaps, such as unclear lines of security authority, and limit the use of managed security services that can deprive enterprise security managers of the data they need to detect and stop DDoS attacks and ATAs.

The rising intensity and sophisticated nature of cyber-attacks has created a precarious environment for businesses charged with protecting their customers’ personal data. In 2012, credit card and debit card fraud resulted in losses amounting to $11.27 billion. In January 2014 alone, a single cyber-attack exposed more than 105 million identities. To steal this data, one option is to target the point at which a retailer first acquires that card data – the Point-of-Sale (PoS) system. PoS systems are increasingly being targeted by these attackers, which is why it's more important than ever to protect these devices and the systems they are connected to. Read more into the research on these attacks in this Symantec Security Response special report.

Phishing is defined by the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) as a broadly launched social engineering attack in which an electronic identity is misrepresented in an attempt to trick individuals into revealing personal credentials that can be used fraudulently against them. In short, it’s online fraud to the highest degree. Although it’s been around for years, phishing is still one of the most common and effective online scams. The schemes are varied, typically involving some combination of spoofed email (spam), malicious software (malware), and fake websites to harvest personal information from unwitting consumers. The explosive rise of mobile devices, mobile applications, and social media networks has given phishers new vectors to exploit, along with access to volumes of personal data that can be used in more targeted attacks or spear phishing. The fact that phishing attacks are still so common highlights their efficacy and reinforces the need to implement comprehensive phishing and response plans to protect organizations. An effective phishing protection plan should focus on four primary areas: Prevention, Detection, Response, and Recovery. High-level recommendations for each of the four areas are outlined in this whitepaper.

Behind the vast majority of legitimate alerts sent to the IT security team is an attacker who exploits multiple attack techniques to infiltrate your infrastructure and compromise your critical data and systems. Targeted multi-phased attacks include a series of cyber attack chain steps: recognition, vulnerability analysis, operation and, finally, exfiltration of critical business data.

Every 14 seconds. That’s how often analysts predict ransomware will attack a business this year.1 Despite the best efforts to thwart ransomware attacks, cyber criminals are innovative, and they continue to create new malware. This means more sophisticated and targeted ransomware attacks are coming—all with the same goal: Disrupt business operations in the hopes victims will pay to restore order. No industry is immune. And because enterprises are now even more attractive targets than consumers,2 your organization must proactively prepare for when, not if, cyber criminals come for your data.
