IOT BOTNETS – WHEN OPEN SOURCE IS MISUSED

Written by

To get rich, cause damage, espionage - there are numerous reasons for cyber attacks. With this in mind, publicly available sources are often searched for information because they are not classified and are therefore legal and available free of charge.

THE NEW TERABIT ERA - ARE YOU READY FOR DDOS?

A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack mobilises a large number of infiltrated systems to attack a single target. Although this is nothing new, security experts are currently working very hard on the growing number and frequency of attacks like these. One of the main findings was that between 2017 and 2018, the frequency of attacks has actually fallen. Still, don't get excited too soon. An alarming trend shows that there is a sharp increase in the scale of attacks, and they are outstripping many companies' defence capabilities. DDoS has now definitely entered the Terabit era! Find out what this means for you in this blog post.

In a previous part of our Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) series, you have learned how to reduce the time it takes to detect a cyber attack. Now it's time to get down to business: In this article, we'll explain why organisations can't just be reactive when scanning, hunting, and analysing security incidents.

In recent weeks and months, we have written a lot about cyber defence. Over the course of time, you will have realised that rapid detection and even faster reaction to cyber attacks in a Cyber Defence Center are crucial to boosting your cyber resilience. In this article, we would like to show you what you have to bear in mind when you set up a Cyber Defence Center - and why outsourcing this elementary part of cyber security is a sensible, economical alternative.

...and what this means for your Cyber Security...

The reason is obvious: burglars use the cover of darkness to move around without being seen. I imagine you're wondering why I am talking about this in our Cyber Security Blog. Quite simply, because we can transfer a lot of what happens in the event of a break-in and the subsequent criminal investigations (hopefully leading to the arrest of the perpetrator) into cyber security.

In the first half of the year, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has had many minds working overtime. Not few enterprises have invested not only nerves, but also a lot of time and money into the implementation. And nevertheless much was still unclear up to the entry into force of the GDPR on 25 May 2018. And today? Have all the bad fears become true We take a look back over the last few months as well as pointing out what advantages the GDPR can bring you in the future.
