Technology is outpacing our ability to secure it. Despite substantial spending on legacy security products, advanced attackers are bypassing these defenses at will and spreading unchallenged. There’s no single technical answer. There’s no legislative fix. Bad guys will always exist, and determin...
For our M-Trends® 2017 report, we took a look at the incidents we investigated last year
and provided a global and regional (the Americas, Asia Pacific (APAC) and Europe,
Middle East, Africa (EMEA)) analysis focused on attack trends and defensive and
emerging trends. For the second consecutive y...
While we have seen modest gains in
organizations’ ability to attack the
security gap, advanced (and not-so advanced)
threat actors continue to evolve their
tactics to find a way through it.
In last year’s M-Trends we noted that cyber
security had gone from a niche IT issue to a
In 2015, more breaches than ever before became public
knowledge. Suffice it to say that the security industry
is changing because of new pressures being applied to
these victim organizations. They now have to respond
to the court of public opinion, as well as all other statutes,
FireEye previously conducted an investigation into a
suspected network intrusion that a university system
administrator discovered when he noticed the presence
of suspicious files on a server. The investigation
revealed a compromise that affected three of the
university’s servers, and involve...
FireEye intelligence analysts frequently
observe two types of advanced threat actors
targeting companies involved in healthcare
services, pharmaceuticals production, and medical
Cyber attacks are on the rise, and it’s no secret that
governmental organizations—both federal, state and local—
have found themselves the target of numerous high-profile attacks. But with so much critical information at stake, what should agencies
know about breaches, and how to defend aga...
A rash of recent high-profile data breaches
among well-known companies has drawn
attention to the critical role that corporate
directors play in cyber security. Boards are increasingly
involved in assessing the risk, improving the security
profile of the companies they advise, and managing the
Cyber-attack volume has never been higher, and if your defenses can’t
keep up, you dramatically increase your risk of a breach. Attackers
have the intellectual resources, the computing power, and the
backbone of the fastest digital delivery networks. They can iterate on
your defenses at will, ...
Today's threat landscape continues to evolve, making preventive measures less and less reliable for thwarting sophisticated attackers. The days of "smash-and-grab" attacks are over. Once inside the network, today's attackers are likely to remain active in the breached environment, conducting stealth...
