This paper offers a better and more current framework to understand both the next-generation threat landscape of advanced malware and the five key design principles needed to eliminate the devil’s bargain implicit in today’s dated and highly ineffective rule-, signature- and list-based defenses.
This handbook shines a light on the dark corners of advance malware, both to educate as well as to spark renewed efforts against these stealthy and persistent threats. By understanding the tools being used by criminals, we can better defend our nations, our critical infrastructures and our citizens....
The new threat landscape has changed. Cybercriminals and nation-states are aggressively pursuing valuable data assets, such as financial transaction information, product design blueprints, user credentials to sensitive systems, and other intellectual property. Simply put, the cyber offense has outpa...
Today, federal agencies are under virtually constant attack, targeted by increasingly sophisticated
and well-funded criminals and nation-states. The increasing efficacy of advanced persistent threats
(APTs) continues to highlight the inadequacies of traditional signature-based defense mechanisms s...
This report provides a detailed, current look at the nature of advanced threats targeting organizations
today. Drawing on data gathered by FireEye® from several thousands of appliances at customer
sites around the world, across 89 million events, this report provides an overview of the current th...
Just how (in)effective are today’s defensein-
depth deployments? Unfortunately,
industry testing bodies offer little help
for organizations looking to assess their
defenses. Controlled laboratory settings
rely on samples of known threats and
assumptions about cyber attacks, which
may be out...
This whitepaper examines the changing threat landscape, how the nature of security threats has evolved, and the potential financial impact across vertical markets and organizations of all sizes. This paper will explain why advanced target attacks have been extremely effective at breaking through tra...
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
Today, email-based threats represent significant and persistent risks for government agencies, and
those dangers are only exacerbated by the move to cloud delivery models. This paper shows how
government agencies can capitalize on the benefits of the cloud, while addressing their critical security...
There's been a rapid and dramatic shift from broad, scattershot attacks to advanced targeted attacks that have had serious consequences for victim organizations. Some of the most famous advanced targeted attacks, such as the attack on RSA, on HBGary Federal, and Operation Aurora all used spear phish...
