For more than a decade, Cisco's security reports have been a definitive source of intelligence for security professionals interested in the state of the global industry. These comprehensive reports provided detailed accounts of the threat landscape and their organisational implications.
Today, Cisco is publishing its second report for 2019: Defending against today's critical threats. This white paper looks back at the threat landscape over the past year, highlighting some of the key cyber security incidents during that timeframe. However, this isn't just another retrospective report, fondly looking back at events that have already come to pass.
Supercharge Your Security
Alert fatigue is the desensitization that comes from being bombarded with too many alerts — a sense of hopelessness from being overwhelmed by tasks and not knowing where to begin.
If an overabundance of security alerts is tiring you out, check out our new e-book, “5 Ways to Supercharge Your Security With Threat Intelligence.” It shows exactly how to use threat intelligence to get the context you need to do something with all that data.
What actually is Threat Intelligence? How are other organisations benefiting from it? How can threat intelligence strengthen all the teams in a cybersecurity organization? Find these answers in this book! Offering practical advices that you can dip into as and when you need, so you should feel free to jump straight into the chapter that interests you most. Our hope is that you will begin to see more of the ways that threat intelligence can solve real-world security problems.
In this handbook uncover:
- The kinds of threat intelligence that are useful to security teams and how each team can use that intelligence to solve problems and address challenges
- How security analysts in the real world use threat intelligence to decide what alerts to investigate, what incidents to escalate and what vulnerabilities to patch
- How information collected outside of the enterprise can help model risks more accurately and prevent fraud
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit

An increasingly tech-savvy workforce is changing the future of work and the workplace.
The workplace is now where your people are, not where they go – whether that’s the public space of a coffee shop or private space at home.
Working hours are no longer standard, dictated by the tasks to be done, not by the clock.
Work tools are no longer based only on workplace technology. The same cool features used in consumer devices, such as touch, are now required for workplace devices.
It’s this familiar, smart technology that keeps people, across the generations, happy, productive and engaged. This dynamic IT is the foundation for a smart workplace that will enable you to attract and keep top talent – and shape the future-ready enterprise, now.

What You Will Learn:
This document will identify the essential capabilities you need in an advanced malware protection solution, the key questions you should ask your vendor, and shows you how Cisco combats today’s advanced malware attacks using a combination of four techniques:
• Advanced analytics
• Collective global security threat intelligence
• Enforcement across multiple form factors (networks, endpoints, mobile devices, secure gateways, and virtual systems)
• Continuous analysis and retrospective security
Insurers have long been plagued by fraud, error, waste, and abuse in health care payments. The costs are huge – amounting to as much as 25 percent of payments made. Today’s data management and
analytics platforms promise breakthroughs by incorporating comparative and behavioral data to predict as well as detect loss in all its forms. To explore the opportunities and how insurers can capitalize on them, IIA spoke with Ben Wright, Sr. Solutions Architect in SAS’s Security Intelligence Global Practice.
The Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) characterizes traditional security tactics as a "messy independent array of independent technologies." A decade ago, this could suffice, but it's no match for today's requirements. Read how an integrated, threat-focused approach can help.
Research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by Oracle,
provides answers. The results show that a proactive security strategy backed by a fully
engaged C-suite and board of directors reduced the growth of cyber-attacks and
breaches by 53% over comparable firms. These findings were compiled from responses
by 300 firms, across multiple industries, against a range of attack modes and over a
two-year period from February 2014 to January 2016.
The lessons are clear. As cyber-attackers elevate their game, the response must be an
enterprise solution. Only C-suites and boards of directors marshal the authority and
resources to support a truly enterprise-wide approach. In sum, proactive cyber-security
strategies, supported by senior management, can cut vulnerability to cyber-attack in half.

Endpoint devices continue to be one of the favorite targets for cyberattacks.
A successfully compromised laptop provides a foothold for a
threat to move laterally and infect other endpoints within the organization.
To address this critical vulnerability, security leaders must integrate
endpoint security into their broader network security architecture. A
deep connection between endpoint and network security offers key
improvements to holistic enterprise protection. It provides risk-based
visibility of all endpoint devices, establishes policy-based access controls,
enables real-time threat intelligence sharing, and automates security
responses and workflows for effective and efficient protection that
conserves time and money.
The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.
There are obviously a variety of choices open to you: a spreadsheet plug-in may be appropriate if you are only focused on general ledger reporting and do not have concerns over security or compliance. You might also suppose that this is a low-cost option, though we would argue that the remediation required, the additional audit fees and the lack of repeatability means that this is a false economy and that this approach will end up costing you more in the long term. A second use case would be where you already have a financial reporting solution installed, when the add-on facilities for purposes such as business intelligence are likely to be your major focus. In this case an Oracle based solution is likely to be as good as anything else.

Privileged Access Management is an imperative to addressing PCI compliance. Yet its importance extends beyond just meeting PCI compliance requirements as it allows an organization to improve its overall security posture against today’s external and internal threats.
CA Privileged Access Manager provides an effective way to implement privileged access management in support of PCI compliance and other security needs.
The SRX Series features a carrier-grade next-generation firewall with layered security services such as application security, unified threat management (UTM), integrated IPS, and advanced integrated threat intelligence to guard against cyber threats and malware.
Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.
