The MITRE ATT&CK Model: A More Effective Way to Detect and Block Cyber Attacks

There have been a variety of models used to define different attack methodologies. Perhaps the most common is Lockheed Martin’s Cyber Kill Chain, that identifies the individual phases of malware attacks. Defining the phases enables you to better understand how to anticipate, prevent, detect, and respond. Lockheed derived the name from the military term “kill chain” […]

Nyotron’s PARANOID Discovers and Blocks a New “Agent Tesla” Variant

Source: Krebs on Security Earlier this month, Nyotron’s PARANOID prevented an attack that had managed to slip past the endpoint security solution installed on one of our customer’s endpoints.

Look for “What’s Not Right” Instead of “What’s Wrong”

In cybersecurity, we tend to focus on things that appear wrong, and act accordingly. For instance, if we detect someone inside our network who doesn’t belong there, we take steps to remove them, then determine and mitigate any damage they caused (or try to). We look for a specific action or event that is “wrong” […]

What “The Exorcist” Teaches Us About Ransomware

  As we head to Las Vegas for Black Hat 2019 this week, I think our industry needs to re-focus on the fact that ransomware still presents a significant threat, and that our current approaches to thwarting that threat are not working.  A few weeks ago, I wrote about the ransomware attacks against three Florida cities that […]

Emotet Can’t Fool Nyotron’s PARANOID

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) […]

“The Bible of Security” Finds a Sharp Rise in Nation-State Cyberattacks

Verizon has released its 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), and not surprisingly its findings are receiving a lot of attention from industry media and analysts. Security Boulevard’s “SecurityExpert” writes it provides “…the most valuable annual ‘state of the nation’ report in the security industry.” ZDNet Editor-in-Chief Larry Dignancalls it “basically the bible of security,” a designation also bestowed on it […]

Osterman Research’s Key Questions to Ask Before Implementing EDR

It’s always smart to do your research before buying and deploying any new business software or hardware. Don’t rush to embrace the “latest-and-greatest” technology because other companies are doing so. Yet Osterman Research has found that many IT security professionals are fast-tracking the implementation of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions without fully understanding how […]

The Boys in Blue Battle the Black Hats

Even if you haven’t seen the classic sci-fi movie “The Terminator” you’re probably familiar with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous line “I’ll be back.” I thought of that scene after reviewing reports of how our PARANOID solution recently thwarted cyber attacks targeted at police departments. Schwarzenegger plays a killer robot sent from the future to find a […]
