Security Layer 8
COMBATS: NEW OR 'NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN' THREATS
The use of cloud or network sandboxing services complements the power
of your firewall. This technology delivers real-time inspection of suspicious
files that firewalls don’t have a known signature to check against.
Security Layer 8
Security Layer 7
COMBATS: ENCRYPTED MALWARE
What better way to launch a successful attack than to hide it from
discovery? Smart cyber criminals mask their attacks inside traffic
encrypted by SSL/TLS standards. This helps them sneak malware by a single-layer network defense.
Security Layer 6
COMBATS : DEVICE COMPROMISE | MALWARE | UNKNOWN USB DRIVES
End-users’ curiosity is a risk factor in itself. Forever seeking connectivity,
users will often connect to any available network without considering
Security Layer 5
COMBATS: DEVICE COMPROMISE
Just because employees or users are within the perimeter of your
network, doesn’t mean any and all threats have been mitigated.
In the modern work environment, users are connected
through the wireless network via Wi-Fi access points.
Security Layer 4
COMBATS: DEVICE COMPROMISE | MALWARE
Security would be much easier if organizations only had to maintain
oversite of a controlled, defined environment. However users and devices
move in and out of networks — and it is the organization’s responsibility
to ensure mobile workers have secure access when they leave the
Security Layer 3
COMBATS: PHISHING | BUSINESS EMAIL COMPROMISE (BEC) | ACCOUNT TAKEOVER (ATO)
The use of email — particularly in business settings — is unavoidable.
Because of this commonality, it remains one of the top attack vectors
for cyber-criminals, which leverage a salvo of phishing attacks and
business email compromise (BEC) campaigns.
Just when you thought cyber criminals couldn’t get smarter, along comes a new scamming technique. Previously used for safeguarding browsing activity, encryption tools are now used by hackers in carrying out phishing scams. This means some fraudulent sites may have HTTPS on their address, giving users a false sense of security.
Ever since the WannaCry and Petya ransomware outbreaks, healthcare organizations have been on their toes. But just when they thought they could relax, a new strain of ransomware has come along. A “Locky-variant” ransomware campaign is currently underway, and it’s every bit as dangerous as previous ransomware attacks.
You’ve all heard of viruses, spyware, ransomware and trojans. But did you know that they’re all types of malware? They’re all designed to ruin your digital life, but different types of malware put your computer at risk in different ways. Understanding what sets them apart can keep your business guarded.
Even if notable punishments and fines for HIPAA non-compliance have only been doled out over the last 6 years, data privacy regulations have been around for 14. And with each passing year, these rules evolve in ways that make it near impossible to keep up without an expert on hand. As we kick off 2017, […]
