Mounting Pressure in Cybersecurity Shouldn’t Discourage Those Who Wear Capes

Regardless of discipline, cybersecurity professionals deal with mounting pressure each day to make the right decisions and strategically play the right hand to keep their organisations a step or two ahead of cybercriminals. It can be stressful. And with good reason as the attack surface is wider and more diverse than ever driven by heavy cloud usage, while those who work to exploit it continue to develop new tactics and tools to help expose security weaknesses.

Generals Without Uniforms: A Transformational Hour for CIOs and CISOs

We have never seen a full-on cyber conflict rage across the world’s digital systems, but if the situation in Ukraine leads to such a thing, CIOs and CISOs will find themselves on the front lines. With escalation patterns uncertain and no “rules of the road” governing cyberwar, any organization risks becoming a casualty. Already, CIOs and CISOs are seeing their roles evolve and enlarge.

What If there was a Supply Chain Compromise of an IDP like Okta?

What If there was a Supply Chain Compromise of an IDP?  The recent security incident at Okta represents yet another perspective on supply chain compromises. While this attack appears to not have been fully realized, resulting in an apparently limited number of businesses affected, it poses an interesting set of questions to think about in terms of what a supply chain attack against an IDP would look like when fully realized. The result of any IDP compromise, or that of any similar pervasive use technology could be an attack group with access to millions of users and thousands of businesses.  This blog provides perspective on the current situation and mitigation and defense strategies to manage such an event.

Insider Threats From External Events

It’s only human to focus on external threats to your well-being. This often applies to organizations and their approaches to security as well; which is why so much energy is typically put into perimeter security. Yet, this approach is antithetical to the zero-trust methodology: Organizations must also pay attention to internal-to-internal and internal-to-external traffic just as much as traffic coming in.

Customer Advisory Bulletin: Mitigating, Detecting, and Responding to Russian Cyberactivity

Vectra customers should be aware that current global events related to Russian recognition of separatist regions of the Ukraine carry with them the risk of increased cyber activity conducted by Russian state level actors.  This includes evidence that the FSB, the main Intelligence Organization in Russia, is responsible for the DDoS against Ukrainian systems in February 2022. [1] Credible concern exists that target selection may expand past regional targets to include, for example, politically or economically useful targets in NATO countries.
