How to Achieve Proactive Threat Hunting

Threat hunting practices are gaining much more importance as hackers and cyber threats focus on improving their stealth. As a result, it is essential for organizations to take on a proactive stance on threat hunting. Continue reading to learn how you can manage that. What is threat hunting? Threat hunting is one of the fundamental cyber security practices. It aims to detect stealthy attacks and threats that go undetected by the traditional security measures.


Protect the Business from Edge to AI with Cloudera Cybersecurity

Gartner estimates 30x connected device growth by 2020. Faster 5G networks bringing an explosion of inexpensive, connected devices. This enables new and more innovative applications and capabilities to improve customer experience. However, all these new applications and connections also broaden the network attack surface. This increases the risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks.


Physical threats to Cybersecurity that you must address

Over 90% of data breach is attributed to human error costing a company anywhere from $1.25 million to $8.19 million. Tackling cybersecurity does not only entail non-physical risks, but also includes an assessment of physical threats such as human, internal, and external hazards. Only then can an appropriate and effective security plan to dissuade hackers and thieves be devised.


Cyber Threat Intelligence Framework

Undoubtedly, today’s cyber threats are very fast and sophisticated. Even their detection and prevention is no longer an easy task. To prevent organizations from being a victim of cyber threats and attacks, a proactive cybersecurity approach must be used. That is the reason the Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) framework comes into place. CTI has become a critical tool for organizations trying to protect their networks and infrastructure.


6 Common Phishing Attacks and How to Protect Against Them

Phishing attacks don’t show any sign of slowing down. Per its 2019 Phishing Trends and Intelligence Report, PhishLabs found that total phishing volume rose 40.9 percent over the course of 2018. These attacks targeted a range of organizations, especially financial service companies, email and online service providers and cloud/file hosting firms.


What is Threat Hunting?

If you are involved in the cyber security processes, you must have heard of the term threat hunting. In this article, we discussed this rather popular concept in detail. Being one of the buzzing concepts of cyber security, threat hunting has been increasingly popular, but what does it refer to? Do you need it? Should you be doing it? We will answer all these questions in detail.


Defining the "R" in Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

This spring, as the product and security operations teams at AT&T Cybersecurity prepared for the launch of our Managed Threat Detection and Response service, it became obvious to us that the market has many different understandings of what “response” could (and should) mean when evaluating an MDR solution. Customers typically want to know: What incident response capabilities does the underlying technology platform enable?


Entity extraction for threat intelligence collection

This research project is part of my Master’s program at the University of San Francisco, where I collaborated with the AT&T Alien Labs team. I would like to share a new approach to automate the extraction of key details from cybersecurity documents. The goal is to extract entities such as country of origin, industry targeted, and malware name. The data is obtained from the AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX) platform: Figure 1: The website
