Secret Server Does It For Adobe
Adobe products and cloud services are accessed and used by billions of users daily. The cloud operations team wanted to ensure that their high standards of security were adhered to while using Adobe on the cloud.
In particular, Adobe’s build environments were the subject of a new set of leading edge security automation protocols that the organisation has implemented in order to harden the cloud environment from external and internal threats.
Find out why Adobe chose Thycotic’s Secret Server to solve their privilege access management challenges.
Hybrid Cloud Security, powered by XGen™
Hybrid clouds represent the new normal for data centers, which, in turn, warrants a new security model—one that is grounded in an understanding about what is different about cloud infrastructure.
IT and security professionals are well aware of the need to retool for this new normal, with 80% of respondents in research conducted by ESG noting that the security (i.e., policies, processes, technologies, and skills) associated with their on-premises infrastructure and applications is more mature than that for their organization’s use of public cloud services.
Red Teaming: finding vulnerabilities in your cybersecurity environment
Red teaming simulates a cyber criminal attack under controlled conditions to identify risks and its impact on the business. It goes beyond traditional pen testing which simulates attacks on individual components or applications to find vulnerabilities or weak spots within those components or applications.
With red teaming, the aim is to simulate a real world attack on the entire IT infrastructure under controlled conditions. It seeks to replicate the processes that real hackers use when targeting an organisation.

Mimecast’s Email Security Risk Assessment Infographic
This infographic is a companion to the eponymous whitepaper download. ESRA is an analysis report measuring the effectiveness of email security systems.
Many organizations think their current email security systems are up to the task of protecting them. However, if an organization hasn’t reviewed its approach to email security within the last 18 months, it is likely vulnerable to attack.
A report exploring UK business preparedness for the GDPR & current cybersecurity concerns.
After four years of negotiations, Europe has finally taken a large step towards stronger, pan-European data privacy laws. In December 2015, European countries agreed the text of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) reforms, which every organisation will need to comply with by 25th May, 2018. The new data privacy laws aren’t just about compliance – the rules and regulations relating to how organisations capture, store, process and share staff and customer data are all about to change.
Effectiveness of Phishing, Training & Understanding the Human Response
This whitepaper reports the results of a 6-month experimental study testing the effectiveness duration of the 40-minute KnowBe4 “Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training”. The scope of the experiment was on common workplace phishing emails tested among small to medium size companies.
Email Security Risk Assessment by Mimecast
Not all email security systems perform the same. Lots of false negatives get let through. That’s what Mimecast found in its new email security risk assessment (ESRA), an inspection of email security systems to uncover the number, type and severity of threats getting into organizations.

The traces you leave behind
Everyday we leave hundreds, if not thousands of digital traces on the internet. And while the data gathered does not specifically identify the user, analysts are still able to create a profile of us based on whereabouts, our likes and dislikes, and time stamps.
Read this paper to understand the ins and outs behind metadata and browser cookies.
The bigger picture
If individuals leave hundreds to thousands of digital traces of themselves on the internet on a daily basis, enterprises leave hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of digital traces on a daily basis. And each one is a potential threat that cybercriminals are on the lookout for.
Read this whitepaper to understand this phenomenon and how you can combat potential threats with Digital Shadows’ Searchlight.

Preventing Sophisticated Attacks
Advanced evasion techniques are, as the name implies, sophisticated criminals who are able to by-pass security barriers.
Criminals use trusted systems to obfuscate malicious data and penetrate network defenses undetected. An advanced evasion technique (AET)
is a method of delivering an exploit or malicious content into a vulnerable target so that the traffic looks normal and security devices will pass it through

Protecting oneself from cyberattacks is not difficult if we all follow some common sense and employ a best practise approach.
Digital Shadows, provides an in-depth analysis of data breaches that have occurred in the world’s 1000 biggest public companies.
Barely a week goes by without reports of a leaked database. Amid all this noise, it’s often still difficult to make sense of the leaked information and understand what it means for organisations.
Dumps of stolen credentials are regularly sold, traded and shared online across paste sites, file-sharing sites and online marketplaces.
This report seeks to help organisations readdress this by understanding where they are exposed, how threat actors are using this information, and what they can do to prepare for and mitigate such events.
Over the last year and a half ransomware has become a vicious plague that has indiscriminately infected organisations and regular end users. The general public has remained ignorant to the threats posed by this malware category and thus fueled the cyber-crime industry to continue utilizing ransomware at the expense of people’s naivety.
By demanding large sums of money in exchange for the release of sensitive data and information, ransomware really is a bitter pill to swallow.
However there are measures that can be taken to mitigate the risk of ransomware and protect yourself and your company from the malicious threat.
Download this whitepaper by Secon Cyber Security and Trend Micro on ransomware to find out more about one of the largest cyber threats of the year and learn how you can protect yourself from being attacked.
With recent high profile hacks on large organisations such as WADA, spearphishing has entered the fray of the cyber threats premier league. Praying on the human weakness within organisations, cybercriminals are able to concoct sophisticated and targeted attacks by socially engineering employees via emails which at some point will include malicious links that breach the company’s security.
The implications are damaging and embarrassing to say the least. Company’s lose sensitive data and they could be left liable to law suits by customers who’s information and billing information is now no longer private.
Download this whitepaper by Secon Cyber Security and Mimecast to find out more about spearfishing and understand what’s involved in the timeline of a spearfishing attack.
Much has been written and published about ransomware in the last 24 months. Most of what we read scares us to death and delves into the horrible consequences of being struck by ransomware.

Download this whitepaper by Secon Cyber Security and Trend Micro to further your understanding on ransomware and understand ways in which to equip yourself and your organisation to avoid this threat.
Moving to Office 365 can bring many benefits to your organization. But just because productivity applications are in the cloud, it doesn’t mean Office 365 can single-handedly protect your organization from socially engineered scams, costly downtime and data loss. IT is responsible for protecting the organization, no matter how the software is deployed, and for having a backup plan when something goes wrong.
Therefore its worth taking a look at the following whitepaper by Secon Cyber Security and Mimecast and ask yourself these 5 questions before deploying Office 365.
