Cybercriminals are creating and deploying new threats every day that are more destructive than ever before. While you may have more people devoted to IT security, established businesses like yours are vulnerable to a wider array of attacks. To keep your organization safe, it’s imperative to stay at least a few steps ahead of the bad guys. Do you know where the threats are coming from?
Why all the hype? Is cyberwarfare really something enterprise information security professionals should be concerned about? It's hard to know what the next cyber crisis will be, but here are a few best practices that enterprise security teams should consider to avoid becoming victims.

News of the Flame attack has spread faster than wildfire. While the attack effected only a small number of Endpoints, Flame signifies a new level of cyber threat that all IT security professionals need to understand in-depth.
In this on-demand webinar, John Kindervag, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, defines "zero-trust architecture," outlines the 5 steps needed to make this model actionable, and explains how his clients are adopting a "zero-trust architecture."
Protecting a business – including its information and intellectual property, physical infrastructure, employees, and reputation – has become increasingly difficult. Online threats come from all sides: internal leaks and external adversaries; domestic hacktivists and overseas cybercrime syndicates; targeted threats and mass attacks. And these threats run the gamut from targeted to indiscriminate to entirely accidental.
Like many security trends and frameworks, the early stages of adoption often involve inconsistent definitions, challenges with justification and management communication and an unknown path to implementation. In this white paper, we:
• Review the current threatscape and why it requires this new approach
• Offer a clarifying definition of what cyber threat Intelligence is
• Describe how to communicate its value to the business and
• Lay out some concrete initial steps toward implementing Intelligence-Led Security
Cyber threat intelligence is unquestionably a hot buzzword in the security industry these days. It is being used to seek venture capital and fund startups. It is being pitched to the enterprise market by providers and consultants. However, in this paper, we argue that the majority of what is being billed as “threat intelligence” isn’t. It’s data. From lists of bad IPs or application vulnerabilities to malware signatures, social media data or indicators of compromise (“IOCs”), none of these things are “intelligence.” They’re data.
In this white paper, we define the difference between intelligence and data, and then illustrate the theoretical discussion in a concise case study in the tangible terms of a real-world practitioner and an actual event.
In today’s security landscape, more vendors than ever are offering what is purported to be “threat intelligence.” Although security experts often have different definitions for this term, one thing many of them can agree on is that an intelligence-led approach to security – that is, putting threat intelligence to real-world use – is critical to protecting organizations. If the goal of an intelligence-led security strategy is to help organizations be more proactive in finding and preparing for threats to physical and digital assets, it’s crucial to define and understand exactly what threat intelligence means, and separate fact from fiction. In this whitepaper, we dispel some common myths about threat intelligence.
Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.
Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.
This report provides a 360 degree view of organizations' security threats, response plans, processes, and investments. More than 800 security decision makers and practitioners were surveyed in December 2014 across North America and Europe.

Globally, sophisticated cyber-attacks are compromising organizations at an unprecedented rate and with devastating consequences. Modern attackers, including criminal organizations, ideological groups, nation states and other advanced threat actors are motivated by a wide range of objectives that include financial gain, industrial espionage, cyber-warfare, and terrorism.

The third-annual Cyberthreat Defense Report pursues this same objective: to inform the IT security community not so much about what the bad guys are up to, but rather about how their peers globally are currently defending against threats and the changes they expect to make going forward. Based on a rigorous survey of IT security decision makers and practitioners – across not only North America and Europe, but for the first time, in Asia Pacific and Latin America as well – the Cyberthreat Defense Report examines the current and planned deployment of countermeasures against the backdrop of numerous perceptions.
