"Ransomware is top of mind for many organizations’ leaders as their organizations face the potentially disastrous aftermath of successful attacks.
ESG has surveyed IT leaders and organizations to find out how big of a problem ransomware is, what are the business consequences of downtime caused by these attacks, and which are some of the best practices and capabilities organizations need to apply to be protected.
According to the ESG research, nearly two-thirds of surveyed organizations across North America and Western Europe experienced a ransomware attack at some point last year, with 22% reporting weekly attacks. The attacks have helped make cybersecurity a target of IT investment, and spending is accelerating.
What’s needed to fend off this epidemic are best practices and tools to:
Prevent or at least mitigate attacks
Protect data and backup data

Employee assistance programs (EAPs) are moving beyond the traditional idea of being a work-based intervention program solely aimed at resolving employees’ personal problems.
Nowadays, EAPs are preventative by nature. They provide important work life resources like counselling, coaching, guidance, and financial and legal support for employees and family members. The focus has expanded from personal problems to overall well-being.

Companies are facing massive cyber security challenges – many of which are rooted in the endpoint. In fact, according to IDC, 70% of successful breaches begin at the endpoint. If you are a McAfee customer, and still have breaches in your endpoint security, then something isn’t working. Perhaps you’re struggling to prevent advanced attacks, or your security team may be burdened by maintaining overly complex policies. You and your end users may even be facing performance issues.
If you are experiencing any of these challenges, then your endpoint security products may actually be creating more problems than they solve. Ask yourself these questions for a cybersecurity reality check.
Fortinet’s 2018 Security Implications of Digital Transformation
Survey looks at the state of cybersecurity in organizations
around the world from the lens of digital transformation (DX).
Three hundred responses from CISOs and CSOs at large
organizations helped us identify several current trends:
n Digital transformation is the most impactful IT trend on
businesses today, with 92% responding that it has a
large impact today.
n Security is by far the biggest challenge to DX efforts,
with 85% of respondents saying it has a large impact.
n The typical organization saw four attacks that resulted
in data loss, outages, or compliance events over two
n Many companies have automated some of their security
procedures, but they are even further behind with other
security best practices.

If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises
that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling
with cloud security. And if your organization is one of
the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service
(IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
clouds, you have additional issues to consider.
Compared to the days when organizations managed
everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud
deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates
the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat
containment and accountability more difficult. Further,
pressure on security teams to protect everything in
the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and
expensive threat management.
If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the
challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually
you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short
of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider
a holistic security approach that reclaims control from

Affecting over 200,000 machines in more than 150 countries, the ransomware known as Wanna Decryptor, or “WannaCry,” became the largest cybersecurity attack in history in May 2017. The malicious software locked out users from critical data, and demanded a ransom payment to unlock the contents. Governments, hospitals, and corporations scrambled to address the attack and prevent the infection from spreading. Ironically, the virus’ execution method was simple: it exploited a vulnerable Windows SMB protocol to spread – an exploit Microsoft had addressed two months prior to the attack with the release of a patch.

Medicaid fraud is prevalent, costly and difficult to prevent. With a combination of more integrated data and advanced analytics, state agencies can turn the tables on fraudsters. They can accelerate the transition from detection to prevention, as new forms of fraud are recognized faster and fewer improper payments go out the door.
This IIA Discussion Summary explores the challenges and opportunities in preventing Medicaid fraud in an interview with SAS’ Ellen Joyner-Roberson, Principal Marketing Manager for Fraud and Security Intelligence, and Victor Sterling, Principal Solutions Architect.
More account openings are taking place through digital devices and online, giving the access and anonymity fraudsters need to steal or fabricate identities. Since credit fraud often starts with a falsified application, it makes sense to have strong tools to monitor loans and credit lines from that point onward. This paper discusses analytics-driven methods for validating applications and spotting trouble at all three stages of bust-out fraud schemes.

As organizations are moving to AWS to gain the operational
efficiencies of the cloud, they’re realizing the
importance of a well-architected framework. This
framework, which consists of twelve pillars, is wellintended,
secure, and compliant, but is not exactly
easy to achieve.
Our clients frequently tell us that two pillars in particular--Security
and Cost Optimization--are the most
difficult to get right. This is partially because while
advanced tooling is required to manage cloud
complexities and compliance, selecting, deploying,
and operating these tools is costly and burdensome.
Without optimizing your environment for these two
pillars, you are preventing your organization from
scaling up. This has resulted in many businesses that
are restricted to a minimal use of AWS, negating any
benefit of having adopted the cloud in the first place.
AHEAD uses the AWS Well-Architected Framework,
which will walk you through common missteps and
how to get it right.

Enterprises and the threats that target them have all fundamentally evolved over the past decade. In response, the security industry has generated an enormous amount of point solutions and technologies to try and keep pace. However, for all of this innovation and change, the underlying enforcement architecture has remained largely unchanged.
A new modern approach to preempting threats is required. One that augments the existing architecture instead of replaces it. This new approach brings full enterprise and business context to real-time enforcement decisions. Identity, behavior, devices, anomalies, and risk all play a real-time role. Just as importantly, enforcement and access options can be graded based on the risk to the business, and policies can actively seek out and adapt to new information.
Organizations globally realize that working only to prevent and detect cyberattacks will not protect them against cyber security threats. That is why IBM Resilient® was developed: to arm security teams with a platform for managing, coordinating, and streamlining incident response (IR) processes.
IBM Security has had the privilege of working with organizations of all sizes and across all industries as they implement Resilient solutions to develop more sophisticated and robust incident response functions. These organizations build IR processes that are consistent, repeatable, and measurable, rather than ad hoc. They make communication, coordination, and collaboration an organization-wide priority. They leverage technology that empowers the response team to do their job faster and more accurately
As cybercriminals look for new ways to break through defenses, it’s vital that organizations have access to real-time operational intelligence across their applications, services, and security infrastructure. As Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) migrated applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS), it needed to expand security capacity for edge protection of its AWS VPCs. REI chose Splunk for security monitoring, historical analysis, and data visualization in real time, to help it investigate events and mitigate operational risks.
