When it comes to the threat landscape, it’s important to take a look in the rearview mirror once in a while.
As with driving, not only do you get a good look at what’s behind you, but you can often spot what’s coming up quick, set to overtake you.
That’s the spirit of this threat report. We’ve picked out five key stories from the last year or so, not just because they were big events, but because we think these threats, or similar ones, could very well appear in the near future. Take modular threats like Emotet and VPNFilter, for example.
These are threats that can deliver an on-demand menu of attacks and threats, depending on which device is infected or the intended goal of the attacker. We saw plenty of such modular threats in recent history, and wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in the future.
Email remains the darling delivery method of attackers, with threats from cryptomining to Emotet using it to spread. It’s also highly likely that other threats, such as unauthorized M
Saint Joseph Abbey and Seminary College in Louisiana was using several separate products to help protect their network, filter content and monitor Internet usage. After installing the Astaro Security Gateway home use version, the solution quickly impressed with its usability and power.
Billing is a key moment of truth for all businesses. Every interaction with the customer ultimately gets filtered through billing. It’s an endless combination of quotes, account creation, orders, pricing, payments, settlement and subscriber management. If your company is looking to evaluate billing and subscription management vendors, this paper covers five must-ask questions your peers wished they had uncovered before signing the contract.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is flooding today’s industrial sector with data. Information is streaming in from many sources — equipment on production lines, sensors at customer facilities, sales data, and much more. Harvesting insights means filtering out the noise to arrive at actionable intelligence.
This report shows how to craft a strategy to gain a competitive edge. It explains how to evaluate IIoT solutions, including what to look for in end-to-end analytics solutions. Finally, it shows how SAS has combined its analytics expertise with Intel’s leadership in IIoT information architecture to create solutions that turn raw data into valuable insights.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
How did firewalls develop to provide the strong, deep security and sophisticated capabilities that they offer us today? It’s a long story that took place over a relatively short period of time, and most likely you were part of it.

BEC attacks are a growing threat to businesses because they prey on vulnerabilities that can’t be patched: people. That’s why employee training, financial controls, and especially technology are the keys to a strong defense and timely response. You need need a solution that does not solely depend on reputation and basic email filtering. With granular controls, advanced email solutions can identify and quarantine impostor emails before they reach an employee’s inbox.

Cloud computing is rapidly changing enterprise IT with applications like Salesforce and Office 365, which are improving productivity, reducing costs, and simplifying management.
Now, organizations are discovering that those same advantages can be achieved by migrating security to the cloud. In fact, in its 2016 Magic Quadrant report on Secure Web Gateways, Gartner reported, “Cloud services have experienced a 35% five-year compound annual growth rate, while on-premises appliances have only grown by 6% during the same period.”
Organizations understand that protecting users with a consistent and enforceable policy requires much more than simple URL or web filtering. Thousands of companies have already switched their IT security from appliances to experience the benefits of the Zscaler™ Security Cloud. Download this whitepaper today to find out why.
URL filtering is a type of content filtering that allows or blocks users from accessing specific websites. The practice has become an essential one on enterprise networks, with the goal of blocking employees from accessing content that would be a detriment to their productivity or the company as a whole. Blocked sites may include those that threaten the security of the organization, have objectionable content, or are bandwidth-intensive enough to strain company resources.
The SecureWorks® Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) research team analyzes security threats and helps
organizations protect their systems. During May and June 2017, CTU™ researchers identified lessons
learned and observed notable developments in threat behaviors, the global threat landscape, and
• The global WCry and NotPetya campaigns reinforced the need for a layered approach
• Attacks used obfuscated malicious files and scripts to bypass filtering and deliver malware.
• A Chinese threat group has had repeated success using compromised websites to attack
• Threat actors have been stealing intellectual property from Japanese enterprises.

We all have an intuitive idea of what an event is. However, when it comes to the use of the term "event" within a business context then it is easy to get confused. This papers seeks to explain what events are, whey they are important to your business, and what the options are for processing and managing these events (depending on their type and volume).
In spite of the billions of dollars invested in security, web-borne threats are still on the rise. Enterprises need a security system that can enforce granular web access policies on all devices used to access the web from inside and outside the network perimeter.

1.Meet the new consumer
The migration to mobile and social media will challenge — and change — everything we know about consumer marketing.
2. Who owns your brand?
Brand equity can no longer be bought. Online reviews now generate total market transparency for location-based businesses. Reviews tilt the balance of branding power away from companies and into the hands of customers.
3. The battle for brick-and-mortar customers is won or lost on the social web. To win, marketers must actively enlist customers as online advocates. Those who scale online review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility and more business at street level.
4. “Dark data” provides priceless operational insights
Vast amounts of unstructured, unmined sentiment data on social media provides feedback about the customer experience that you can filter using thematic analysis and use to improve operations at the national or location level.

Increasing your non-interest revenues without increasing customer fees that ultimately drive customers away can be a challenge.
The digital economy is opening up new ways to drive additional revenue from existing customers. The same technical innovations are also opening up new ways to communicate with customers about both digital and traditional offerings. But that results in customers becoming overwhelmed with advertising and marketing messages. They are forced to decide upfront who is providing relevant information and who to completely ignore. Ultimately, it comes down to trust.
Customers consider generic messages to be spam and learn to filter them out, even if they come from a known vendor. Over the long run, these types of marketing campaigns not only see diminishing returns, they can even damage your long-term relationship with customers and decrease revenues.

In evaluating the security posture for your Global Transit Network, your first question might be: Why do I even need additional security? Isn’t what Amazon provides “out of the box” adequate? This is not the right question to ask first. It’s important to appreciate that, while Amazon says it has a shared security model, your Amazon EC2 instance may not meet your security requirements “by default.” Though Amazon makes specific security features available to you, it’s still up to you to choose judiciously among the many native and third-party options.
As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, walk through five use cases and examine what Amazon provides, and the questions you need to be asking to implement Amazon services – or add additional ones – that are appropriate for your business. After examining each use case, we’ll show you how we handle it for our own business.
