According to Wikipedia, malware analysis is the study or process of determining the functionality, origin, and potential impact of a given malware sample. In this new handbook from the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence, the authors share concise insight and general techniques for analyzing the most common malware types for the Windows OS.
From ransomware remediation to incident response, this webcast presentation will highlight cutting-edge data discovery technologies and proven document review services to support the detection, identification, review, and notification processes required by law after sensitive data-related breaches and disclosure.
An affiliate of the notorious REvil gang, best known for extorting $11 million from the meat-processor JBS after a Memorial Day attack, infected thousands of victims in at least 17 countries on July 2, 2021, largely through firms that remotely manage IT infrastructure for multiple customers.
According to the recent report from the UK’s Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies (RUSI), post-incident services have become one of the success stories of cyber insurance for both insurers and insureds. For insurers, they may reduce incident costs. For purchasers of cyber insurance – particularly SMEs – they provide access to services and expertise during crises.
The 11th installment in a series published by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Center of Excellence (CCDCOE) designed for military and national security decision-makers focuses on ransomware including the cases of the Colonial Pipeline Attack, the ransomware attack against Irish Health Care, and Ransomware & Cyber Insurance.
The Cyber Security and Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC) is chartered to leverage best practices and expertise from government, industry, and academia on cybersecurity and information technology. On June 24, 2021, the CSIAC published the latest version of its DOD Cybersecurity Policy Chart. The DoD Cybersecurity Policy Chart captures a tremendous breadth of applicable policies, some of which many cybersecurity professionals may not even be aware of, in a helpful organizational scheme.
Addressing the DDoS problem has become more important than ever. The global pandemic almost instantly shifted the whole education system and jobs that can be done online to the home. Accessing different remote systems has become a necessity for all those affected. DDoS attacks against many organizations could previously have had only a limited negative effect and reputational damage and the daily operations of employees and students could continue in person or via locally accessible systems. Now the attack can stop all work and education for remote users relying on the targeted system.
According to Ralph Nickl, CEO and co-founder of Canopy, “Until recently, data protection regulations have outpaced technology and processes. Our software enables people to significantly expedite the assessment of compromised data following a security incident so that, in the event of a breach, they can respond within required timeframes and help minimize harm by notifying affected individuals faster.”
According to Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas, “The cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving and we must adapt to address new and emerging threats. The recent ransomware attack on a major petroleum pipeline demonstrates that the cybersecurity of pipeline systems is critical to our homeland security. DHS will continue to work closely with our private sector partners to support their operations and increase the resilience of our nation’s critical infrastructure.”
According to Exterro Founder and CEO Bobby Balachandran, “Speed and accuracy are of the utmost importance when conducting large breach reviews. Historically, organizations have tried to create their own cobbled-together solutions or repurpose technology not built for the task to understand, report on, and mitigate data breaches. The result was slow ingestion, processes that don’t scale, and inflexible data definitions that cannot detect emerging and important data types like PHI. With Exterro Smart Breach Review, our customers can now complete even the largest breach reviews in less time using fewer resources. The software’s AI-led identification and automated report data generation also significantly reduce the potential for errors and omissions.”
