Hacker in a security context refers to a type of computer hacker who is involved in computer security/insecurity and is able to exploit systems or gain unauthorized access through skills, tactics and detailed knowledge.
To win the ongoing war against hackers and cyber criminals, IT professionals must do two things: Deploy and maintain endpoint security tools with the latest updates, and ensure the software applications running in their networks have the latest available patches.
The security threat landscape is rapidly evolving: from risks with the proliferation of mobile devices to the increased sophistication of organized cyber criminals and geopolitical threats. Healthcare has a significant burden with the dubious distinction of having the highest per record data breach cost among all regulated industries.
The malware industry supplies all the components cybercriminals need to easily perpetrate malware-driven financial fraud and data theft. In today’s virtual world, the
scope of organizations vulnerable to malware-driven cybercrime is quite broad. In addition to banks and credit unions that are subject to online banking fraud, financial fraud can be perpetrated on insurance companies, payment services, large e-commerce companies, airlines and many others.
This white paper provides an overview of how cybercriminals circumvent security measures at each stage of a transaction’s lifecycle—pre-login, during login and post-login—and offers strategies to help financial organizations combat malware-driven attacks.
IBM Security Trusteer solutions provide a layered security approach that can help overcome the pitfalls of two-factor authentication. They can help identify the root cause of malware and phishing attacks, defend against identity theft and thwart the evolving tactics of today’s fraudsters.
With users connecting to unsecured public networks and running multiple applications from both company and personal devices, sensitive corporate data is more vulnerable than ever before. For your security policies to be effective, they need to bring all devices and applications under IT control and regulate user behavior
With users connecting to unsecured public networks and social media platforms on both company-owned and personal devices, sensitive data can now be accessed--and lost--from more endpoints than ever before.
Virtualization promises cost savings, improved productivity, and the ability to transform your business. But too often security can either detract from the performance gains that virtualization promises, or just not give you the protection you need. Getting the balance right is critical.
For virtualization security, there’s no one size fits all solution…and trying to fit your organization’s specific needs into the wrong security product can be a costly mistake. Do you know how to pick the right option for your organization?
You want to maximize the potential offered by new technologies and establish an advantage over your competitors, but you know the latest IT developments can also bring new security challenges. This practical guide helps you align essential IT security with your core business objectives
Cybercriminals today are launching attacks against businesses by copying sophisticated malware and techniques used to target governments and high-profile organizations. Don’t get caught in the crossfire. Read our special report "Who's spying on you?"
You can’t open a newspaper or visit an online news site these days without some mention of a cyber-attack or data breach. These activities are becoming more prevalent, and as a result, the reporting of these activities is also on the rise.
With the number of advanced attacks increasing every day—most undiscovered through traditional detection and response solutions—truly hunting for threats within your environment can be a laborious task. To combat this, enterprises must focus on prioritizing endpoint data collection over detection, leveraging comprehensive threat intelligence, and expanding detection beyond the moment of compromise.
Hybrid cloud infrastructures and mobility are changing the rules of the game for IT security professionals. Read this paper to understand the requirements to adopting a new monitoring strategy to quickly detect attacks across the infrastructure you control in your data center, as well as what you don't control in the dynamic cloud.
Optimize the process of investigating and gathering evidence on attacks and data breaches with Network Forensics software. Learn how using full network packet capture data can deliver insight and analysis that cannot be achieved using only log source events and network flow details.
The IBM X-Force research and development team collects, analyzes and distributes threat intelligence to IBM customers - and uses it to enrich the IBM Security portfolio - so users can leverage in-depth knowledge and understanding of threats to bring business value to their organizations.
