Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting individuals and businesses. Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually. According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands. No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.

For decades, the financial services industry has endured constant change and uncertainty, from the depths of a financial crisis to widespread regulation overhauls. With the advent of more advanced cybersecurity threats, the industry has responded with rapid digital transformation to remain competitive while also pushing the envelope. Today, managing and mitigating cyber-related risks not only draws government scrutiny, but increased consumer scrutiny as well, with longstanding brand reputations anchored to institutions’ ability to protect its most sensitive data. In a recent survey of Americans, financial information was considered by consumers to be their most valuable personal information, worth even more than personal or family photos and videos. For consumers, failing to protect their data is a grave violation of trust, to the point where 72% would consider leaving their current financial institution if their sensitive information was taken hostage by ransomware.1 Not only does the

The types of threats targeting enterprises are vastly different than they were just a couple of decades ago. Today, successful enterprise attacks are rarely executed by the “lone wolf” hacker and instead come from highly sophisticated and professional cybercriminal networks. These networks are driven by the profitability of ransomware and the sale of confidential consumer data, intellectual property, government intelligence, and other valuable data. While traditional PC-based antivirus solutions can offer some protection against these attacks, organizations need highly adaptive and much faster mobile threat defense (MTD) for enterprise devices.

Today, a range of diverse cyber-adversaries — including nation-states, cybercriminals, competitors, hacktivists, and insiders/contractors — pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to industrial and critical infrastructure organizations. The business impact can include costly production downtime, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate secrets such as sensitive information about formulas and proprietary manufacturing processes. The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives and IT/OT convergence to support the business — removing any “air-gaps” that may have existed in the past. To help security and operations teams stay ahead of the latest ICS/SCADA threats, CyberX — the industrial cybersecurity company founded by military cyber experts with nation-state experience securing critical infrastructure — has partnered with SANS to create educational content about emerging ICS threat vectors and

Traditional backup systems fail to meet the needs of modern organizations by focusing on backup, not recovery. They treat databases as generic files to be copied, rather than as transactional workloads with specific data integrity, consistency, performance, and availability requirements. Additionally, highly regulated industries, such as financial services, are subject to ever?increasing regulatory mandates that require stringent protection against data breaches, data loss, malware, ransomware, and other risks. These risks require fiduciary?class data recovery to eliminate data loss exposure and ensure data integrity and compliance

Over the past three years, ransomware has jumped into the spotlight of the cyber threat landscape. Kaspersky Lab reports that in 2015, its solutions detected ransomware on more than 50,000 computers in corporate networks—double the figure for 2014. Even at this rate of detection, Kaspersky admits that the real number of incidents is several times higher than what has been detected and reported.1 In just the first quarter of 2016, $209 million was paid out to cyber criminals using ransomware. The FBI estimates that losses to be incurred in 2016 due to ransomware will top $1 billion.2 Once again, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
