Perfect Depth Deception – Countering Attackers One Step at a Time
The era of the data breach shows no signs of slowing down. As data breaches continue to increase at an exponential rate, the mantra of “it’s not a matter of if you will be breached, but a matter of when” continues to be an unfortunate reality that every organization must be prepared for. Companies are investing in a plethora of security options, but with so many solution options available, it has become increasingly difficult to discern the overall value and ROI that all of these solutions provide. Attackers continue to find ways around both traditional endpoint and perimeter protections and bypass existing controls to execute attacks with devastating results. Organizations need to suppress and contain adversaries before a breach is able to occur. By utilizing Deception technology, security teams can combat advanced threats through baiting, engaging, and trapping attackers as they attempt to move through your network. Join our conversation to learn how implementing Deception technology can help your security team protect your company’s assets against malicious insiders and sophisticated cybercriminals.

What is the Value of Third Party Risk Assessments?
Many information security executives have been performing third party risk assessments for years. Some execs are under regulatory pressure to complete third party risk assessments, and in some cases even fourth party risk assessments. So what is the value? What have information security executives accomplished by doing these assessments? What have they learned from this area over the years? Join us as John Graham, CISO for Jabil, takes us on a journey through roughly 20 years of third party risk assessments and data sharing risk. During this conversation, John will touch on key learnings, continued challenges, and strive to answer the question, “Is there true value in all of the effort?”

The Internet of Things is Here and Growing but are You Ready for it?

The once nebulous Internet of Things has slowly but surely become a more defined and pressing issue for Information Security professionals as more organizations begin to adopt the IoT into their business structure. Gartner predicts that in the year 2020, 25 billion ‘things’ worldwide are connected to the internet with a collective economic value of two trillion dollar. While that still leaves current InfoSec professionals some time to adapt to a more pervasive Internet of Things, the question remains; “How ready is your organization for IoT adoption now?” Does your organization have the right skillsets and capabilities in place now to start investing in IoT related projects? Aside from all the innovative, technical and business skills needed, perhaps the greatest skill needed is the ability to understand what missing factors are in the organization’s capabilities.

Security from the Inside: Combating Insider Threats

While the popular view of most security threats tends to be of outsiders, the last few years have also seen an increasing emphasis on threats to the enterprise from the inside. Insider threats can range from something as simple as a negligent employee who clicks on a bad email link to a disgruntled employee with privileged access to sensitive data and portions of the enterprise. A 2016 survey on insider threats by Bitglass revealed that one in three organizations interviewed had experienced insider attacks, with 56% saying they have gone up in the past year. Organizations are starting to see improvements in detecting insider threats however. In the same survey, 64% of the respondents said they can now detect breaches within a week, compared to the previous year where only 42% were able to do so. While there have been some improvements in dealing insider threats, there still remains a strong need for a more vigilant and proactive approach to identifying, isolating, and mitigating damage from these kinds of attacks.

Ransomware on the Rise

Malware has long been the bane of many security professionals. However, a more frightening evolution in this long-time InfoSec foe has become increasingly dangerous and more prevalent in recent years. Ransomware has continued to grow as one of the most prevalent threats to industries of all shapes and sizes. A 2015 report by McAfee found a huge jump of late, from 257,357 new ransomware samples in the first half of 2014, to 380,652 in the second half. By the first half of 2015, that number jumped 5.3 times to over 2 million. In 2016, we saw several increasingly high-profile examples, including, most notably, the case of Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, a 434-bed hospital whose network effectively ground to a halt after hackers breached the system in early February. After relying on pen and paper records briefly, Hollywood Presbyterian paid the 40 bitcoin ($17,000) ransom to regain control of its network. As ransomware continues to spread, what can security professionals do to better protect themselves from this most malevolent of malware?

Securing What You Share: Improving Your Third Party Security

When organizations start working with third-party vendors, they have to consider a variety of security concerns. These vendors often have access to valuable, sensitive corporate data, yet according to a 2016 study by the Ponemon Institute, more than one third of companies don’t believe these vendors would tell them if they had a data breach. Additionally, About 60% of respondents said they felt vulnerable because they were sharing sensitive data with third parties that might have weak security policies. While including data privacy and security procedures in third-party contracts to ensure vendors have appropriate measures in place to protect company data has become commonplace, it is difficult to evaluate how the vendor is protecting data from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure, and to know whether the vendor has appropriate contractual terms in place with downstream, who may also have access to your data. This disconnect creates a high-risk area for all industries as more and more data loss through third-party vendors results in a breakdown of trust and communication. To help prevent potential damages, organizations need to develop plans for working with third parties that involve data mapping vendors, contract specificity, and regular data audits.

Social [Media] Security: The Impact of Social Media on Information Security

Social media has become such an integral part of our day to day actions that we sometimes neglect to consider the greater impact it has at the business level. Cyber criminals run rampant across every social network today. While we see headlines about social marketing faux pas and account hacks, those are just the tip of the security risk iceberg. Companies’ poor social media security practices can put their brands, customers, executives, at serious risk. According to Cisco, Facebook scams were the most common form of malware distributed in 2015. The FBI said that social media-related events had quadrupled over the past five years and PricewaterhouseCoopers found that more than one in eight enterprises suffered a security breach due to a social media-related cyberattack. While adapting best practices for social media usage for employees is a decent start, there’s much more to be done. Security professionals must start treating social channels like the potential security threat they are and align strategies to effectively fend against the range of cyber techniques currently in use.

The Art of Deception: Increasing Visibility and Accelerating Integration via Deception
The Home Depot Information Security team proactively partnered with all acquisitions to elevate their security capabilities to industry cutting edge solutions by deploying advanced deception and early detection systems. This approach would help them collectively gain needed visibility to quickly detect cyber attackers. Specifically, as a part of deploying deception, they established the capabilities to detect hidden or time triggered malware that could move laterally across the affiliate networks, identify tactics being taken to compromise endpoints relying on stolen credentials to escalate privileges and compromise the environment. This proactive approach helped them develop a light weight but highly effective and scalable security strategy across distributed subsidiaries that helps protect the integrity of the environment. Learn how the Home Depot Deception Project was able to improve risk reduction, rapidly assess security capabilities of acquired subsidiaries, and enable accelerated integration across this expanded Home Depot portfolio.
