    How many security attacks did you fend off today?

    in Technology

    2013 is well on its way to be another record year for cyber intrusions, keeping security as a topic in every corporation’s boardroom and in every government agency.  
    How many vulnerabilities did your security team find scanning today, last month, or this year? And how many were high risk? In the first six months of 2013, the IBM X-Force Research and Development team analyzed 4,100 new security vulnerabilities and 900 million new web pages and images.
    The IBM X-Force team just released their Trend and Risk Report which summarizes their findings on emerging threats and the 2013 attack landscape. If you are a CIO, CEO, CISO or a line of business executive this must read report outlines the new attack opportunities in areas like:
    •       Social media: how social media is a valuable tool for business, but is also being used by attackers for reconnaissance and launching attacks
    •       Mobile device malware: how the explosive growth of Android devices is attracting malware authors
    •       Poisoning the watering hole: how attackers are compromising a central strategic target and launching zero day exploits
    •       Distraction and diversion: how attackers are amplifying Distributed-Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks as a distraction to allow them to breach other systems
    •       Old techniques, new success: how today’s security complexity can enable old gaps to be exploited

    Richard Bejtlich Discusses Impact of Cyber Espionage on Nati

    in US Government



    Last week, Brian Contos, CISO of the Advanced Threat Protection Group at Blue Coat Systems, discussed how cyberwar has become a great equalizer between nation states. While our understanding of cyberwar and states’ ability to execute a cyberwar strategy are in their infancy, Contos directs our attention to how attacks have shifted from creative mischief to stealing intellectual property, intercepting military communications and the destruction of computer systems.  The recent news about Chinese hackers stealing designs for advanced weapons systems from the Department of Defense and the extent of frustration among agency officials about the scale of cyberthefts is just the latest example.


    In this guest podcast, Richard Bejtlich, Mandiant’s Chief Security Officer, discusses the latest cyber challenges including cyberwar and China’s cyber espionage units, which were exposed earlier this year in the Mandiant APT1 report. Bejtlich’s podcast appears on Federal Blue Print courtesy of Bloomberg Government.
