While most cybersecurity weaknesses involve technology, cybersecurity is ultimately a people problem. The human element exposes an enterprise to risks, undermines the effectiveness of technology, yet it can also mitigate what technology cannot. Some cyber problems are best dealt with human solutions or at least consideration for the human condition.

We are providing ten pro tips for mitigating security gaps. This will help alleviate workloads and pressure from many layers of your cyber program.

ABC Corporation (ABC Corp.), a large enterprise, engaged AppGuard, LLC (AppGuard), to determine if the Enterprise product patented by AppGuard would help strengthen their cybersecurity posture. In this technical deep dive whitepaper, we have outlined how AppGuard Enterprise aligns with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, Lockheed Martin’s Cyber Kill Chain® and the MITRE ATT&CK Framework. As part of the threat assessment, we provided specific recommendations for each element of the cybersecurity stack, and how to optimize their cyber defense while reducing their overall cost.

A novel virus named COVID-19 is rapidly spreading across the globe. Cybercriminals have already started leveraging the fear connected with COVID-19 pandemic as a tool to spread misinformation, steal passwords, data, and harm critical infrastructure.

Record-breaking Number of Breaches

2019 broke the record for the most data breaches of any year yet.

According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, the number of data breaches tracked in 2019 (1,473) increased 17% from the total number of breaches reported in 2018 (1,257). Other surveys have reported much higher numbers, showing an increase in both the number of records exposed and breaches.

In this report, we look at 10 of the biggest and most damaging attacks of 2019 and best practices enterprises of any size should incorporate to ensure they are protecting their organization and customers.

AppGuard is partnering with leading law firms to protect sensitive enterprise and client data by enhancing cyber stack and offering 100% protection.

In what might be the first strike in cyber attacks against the U.S. in response to the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani, earlier this week, hackers claiming to be linked with Iran targeted the website of the U.S. Federal Depository. With escalating tensions between Tehran and the United States, this attack was not a surprise. Business, government, local, and state agencies need to ramp up cybersecurity practices to defend themselves against potential attacks that can cause significant financial and reputational damage. What comes next?

With data breaches up 54% and multiple terabytes of records exposed by hackers in recent months, spending on cybersecurity by worried company leaders is also reaching new heights. Your cybersecurity stack might be expanding, but is it up to today’s complex challenges? Learn how various classes of security tools and techniques overlap and find out how a strong foundation can help you optimize your cybersecurity stack while keeping costs under control.

Companies keep adding more tools and people to their cyber programs, yet breaches and cybersecurity spending continue to increase. In this whitepaper, we’ll take a look at:

1. The scale of the cybersecurity challenge and some of the tools commonly deployed to reduce risks.

2. A new approach to cybersecurity to rightsize the stack and use resources more effectively.

3. Impacts at the endpoint, network, data, and IT/Sec-Ops levels and how building the cybersecurity stack on a strong foundation can reduce costs and risk.

 

Labor is typically the top-line expense in a cybersecurity operation. AppGuard not only eliminates a significant portion of the products and appliances IT/Sec-Ops teams use to mitigate threats, but it also frees those professionals to work on more strategic tasks (like higher-level threat intelligence and hunting) by stopping the incidents and alerts that routinely bog IT/SecOps professionals down.
