Organizations in the APAC region are not immune to the impact of the SolarWinds supply chain hack, so it's essential that they reassess their risk management practices and audit their suppliers, two security experts stress.
In the past, when threat actors were less advanced and when digital activity was more predictable, a traditional approach to security was often adequate to keep cyber-threats at bay. By configuring security tools with static rules and historical attack data, organizations have sought to detect threats by defining...
Good news on the cybercrime front: "Cryptocurrency-related crime fell significantly in 2020," compared to 2019, reports blockchain analysis firm Chainalysis. Unfortunately, in the same timeframe, ransomware profits surged 311%, stoking calls for a crackdown on ransom payments.
To enhance organizations' security postures in the year ahead, CISOs must strengthen authentication processes, increase the use of network segmentation tools and deploy effective threat intelligence capabilities, two CISOs recommend.
An investigation at the U.S. Treasury Department has found that it suffered a "significant" breach as a result of the SolarWinds Orion supply chain attack, a top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee reports. Meanwhile President-elect Joe Biden said of the attack: "I promise you, there will be a response."
New Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions were built to unify multiple prevention, detection and response technologies into a single platform to provide comprehensive visibility and protection. As cyber-threats become more sophisticated and niche protection solutions remain frustratingly disconnected, a...
Are insurers getting cold feet over covering losses to ransomware? With claims due to ransomware skyrocketing, some insurers have reportedly been revising offerings to make it tougher for companies to claim for some types of cybercrime, including extortion.
By consolidating data from different sources, XDR positions itself as an attack-centric tool and not a role-centric tool, which Prateek Bhajanka, senior principal analyst at Gartner, says helps it to detect attacks from anywhere.
Networks are fundamentally changing as a result of data being used across cloud environments. So security must be built into networks to improve mitigation of cyberthreats, says Nick Savvides, senior director of strategic business, APAC, at Forcepoint.
Like you, cybercriminals are on their own digital transformation journey. Trends like remote work, Internet of Things (IoT), bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and cloud initiatives have given hackers new ways to infiltrate your organization by exponentially expanding the attack surface. Technologies like artificial...
This comprehensive survey of 5,000 IT managers reveals the reality of the human side of cybersecurity. It explores plans for human-led threat hunting, the impact of the cybersecurity skills shortage, and how ransomware affects IT teams over and above any financial, reputational, and operational impact.

70% of successful breaches started at the endpoint in 2019. Since then, a global pandemic has caused a large-scale shift to remote work creating a perfect storm for privilege abuse.
As a result, malware has increased by 30,000% in 2020. This is especially concerning when many companies still rely on antivirus...
A hacking group targeting Iranian dissidents has developed malware that can bypass two-factor authentication protection on Android devices to steal passwords, according to Check Point Research. The hackers have also targeted victims' Telegram accounts.
