2017 and 2018 were not easy years to be a CIO or CISO, and 2019 isn’t showing any signs of being easier. With so many career-ending-level data breaches in 2017 (e.g., Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, to name a few) and with the stronger regulatory requirements worldwide, CIOs/CISOs have a corporate responsibility to rethink their approach to data security. Regulatory compliance aside, companies have a responsibility to their customers and shareholders to protect data, and minimize its exposure not only to external attackers but also to employees. The most common method of data breach in 2017 was a phishing email sent to a company’s internal employees (See 2017 Data Breach Investigation Report), This makes employees unwillingly complicit in the data breach. Over 80% of successful cyberattacks have a critical human element that enabled them. The average employee who opens the innocent-looking attachment or link, is unintentionally jeopardizing a company’s data. While there is no 100% protection, th

2017 war kein einfaches Jahr für einen CIO / CISO, und auch 2018 gibt es derzeit keine Anzeichen dafür, dass es einfacher wird. Bei so vielen Datenverstößen, die sogar Karrieren beendeten, allein im Jahr 2017 (Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, um nur einige zu nennen) und mit weltweit verschärften regulatorischen Anforderungen haben CIOs / CISOs die unternehmerische Verantwortung, ihren Ansatz zur Datensicherheit zu überdenken. Abgesehen von der Einhaltung gesetzlicher Vorschriften sind Unternehmen gegenüber ihren Kunden und Aktionären verp?ichtet, Daten zu schützen und ihre Gefährdung nicht nur gegenüber externen Angreifern, sondern auch gegenüber Mitarbeitern zu minimieren. Die im Jahr 2017 am häu?gsten genutzte Methode für Datendiebstahl war das Phishing, welches sich an interne Mitarbeiter von Unternehmen richtete (siehe Report zur Untersuchung von Datenverstößen im Jahr 2017). Damit wurden diese Mitarbeiter unwissentlich mitschuldig an der Datenverletzung: Über 80% der erfolgreichen Cyber-An

2017 n’a pas été une année facile pour les DSI / RSSI et 2018 ne semble pas montrer des signes d’embellie. Etant donné le grand nombre de compromissions de données aux conséquences dramatiques (Equifax, Uber, Yahoo pour ne citer que quelques exemples) et compte tenu du renforcement des obligations réglementaires dans le monde, les DSI / RSSI sont contraints de devoir revoir leur approche de la sécurité des données.

Il 2017 non è stato un anno facile per essere un CIO / CISO e il 2018 non sembra mostrare alcun segno di miglioramento in tal senso. Con così tante violazioni di dati in grado di rovinare un’intera carriera nel solo 2017 (Equifax, Uber, Yahoo per citare solo alcuni casi) e con requisiti normativi più rigorosi in tutto il mondo, i CIO / CISO hanno la responsabilità societaria di rivedere il loro approccio alla sicurezza dei dati.

From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded. The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

The WannaCry ransomware attack in May 2017 crippled the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and disrupted a range of organizations across 150 countries. Despite being a relatively unsophisticated attack, WannaCry was able to make such a global impact due to preventable vulnerabilities that had largely gone unaddressed. There were many more attacks in 2017, including high-profile breaches at Uber and Equifax, where heeding cyber-security recommendations may have reduced the impact and fallout. The scale and sophistication of cyber-attacks is not slowing down – ranging from phishing scams to cryptocurrency-based cyber-attacks, to statesponsored attacks on industrial control systems. These attacks present an ever growing challenge and serve as a reminder that organizations cannot afford to be complacent in the face of cyber threats. We’re living in a time when cyberattacks are a matter of when, not if, and security professionals must focus on mitigating their extent and damage.

We’ve arrived at the second anniversary of the Equifax breach and we now know much more about what happened due to the August 2018 release of the GAO Report. New information came out of that report that was not well-understood at the time of the breach. For example, did you know that while Equifax used a tool for network layer decryption, they had certificates nine months out of date? This lapse gave the threat actors all the time they needed to break in and exfiltrate reams of personal data. As soon as Equifax updated the certs on their decryption tools, they began to realize what happened. On the heels of the Equifax breach, we are reminded of the importance of efficient decryption for effective threat detection. That’s more important than ever today; Ponemon Institute reports that 50% of all malware attacks utilize encryption. During this webinar, we’ll talk about: -How TLS/SSL encryption has become a threat vector -Why decryption is essential to security and how to effectively pe

A significant paradigm shift occurred in the last few years. Much like other technological shifts of the last decade — when cloud computing changed the way we do business, agile changed the way we develop software and Amazon changed the way we shop — Zero Trust presents us with a new paradigm in how we secure our organizations, our data and our employees. While difficult to identify the precise tipping point, one thing is certain: what were once extraordinarily high-profile, damaging breaches are no longer extraordinary. In just the last 18 months, Yahoo, Accenture, HBO, Verizon, Uber, Equifax, Deloitte, the U.S. SEC, the RNC, the DNC, the OPM, HP, Oracle and a profusion of attacks aimed at the SMB market have all proven that every organization — public or private — is susceptible. The epiphany behind the paradigm shift is clear: Widely-accepted security approaches based on bolstering a trusted network do not work. And they never will. Especially when businesses are dealing with skill
