Advances in attacks on network security over the last few years have led to many high-profile compromises of enterprise networks and breaches of data security. A new attack is threatening to expand the potential for attackers to compromise enterprise servers and the critical data on them. Solutions are available, and they will require action by company officers and administrators. “SSLStrip” and related attacks were among the highlights of the July 2009 Black Hat show in Las Vegas. Researcher Moxie Marlinspike combined a number of discrete problems, not all related to SSL, to create a credible scenario in which users attempting to work with secure websites were instead sent to malicious fake sites.

Businesses face an increasingly complex set of threats to their Web applications—from malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) to disgruntled employees and unintentional data leaks. Although there is no single security measure than can prevent all threats, there are some that provide broad-based mitigation to a number of threats. The use of SSL encryption and digital certificate-based authentication is one of them. Changes in the way we deliver services, the increasing use of mobile devices, and the adoption of cloud computing compounded by the ever-evolving means of stealing information and compromising services leave Web applications vulnerable to attack. In this chapter, we turn our attention to the combined risk of losing data and losing customer trust.

We often think of malware as being designed to sit beneath the radar, collecting data in stealth mode, for the purposes of fraud or corporate espionage. Increasingly however, we’re witnessing attacks on corporations designed to cause substantial economic losses via wholesale destruction. For example, the Shamoon malware that recently hit Saudi Arabia-based Aramco (the world’s largest oil company) and RasGas (a Qatar-based gas company) corrupted files on tens of thousands of workstations, overwriting the Master Boot Records. These malware attacks, which may well have targeted website vulnerabilities, resulted in destruction on an industrial scale. At Aramco, IT professionals were forced to replace 30,000 PCs and laptops. RasGas meanwhile, had to shut down all email communications, and the company’s website was forced offline.

Threat Intelligence is one of the most critical weapons we can use in cyber defense. Knowing which attackers are trying to target your organization, as well as how, why, and when gives you an advantage when trying to thwart these attacks. In today’s landscape, security researchers are a modern-day version of Sherlock Holmes. They’re constantly analyzing clues to an adversary’s motives and techniques, tracking down their ephemeral footprints amidst the chaos of our cyber community. However, these researches can also make hasty conclusions before all the facts are gathered, and dismiss the most important clues during investigations. This evaluation guide is designed to help you evaluate threat intelligence service providers, so that you can effectively put threat intelligence to work for you. You’ll learn: • The 3 characteristics to look for when evaluating threat intelligence vendors • The most important questions to ask when evaluating threat intelligence vendors and what to listen for
