Forget credit card numbers. The hot new data for the modern bad guy is the electronic health record, which is not only worth more on the black market, but is easier to get.
The government's focus on defense in depth and creating a pristine IT environment is not working, argues OPM's Chief Information Security Officer Jeff Wagner. Read about TaaSera's thoughts on the need for a new breach detection model.
"CSI: Cyber" premiered on March 4, 2015. Keith Wagstaff asked several real-life cyber experts what they thought about the show's portrayal of cybercrime. Read TaaSera's VP of Security Solutions' thoughts.
“We face a common external enemy and are facing a growing crisis of epic proportions,” Hartz said. “The United States has always pulled together in times of need like this. Provided we reach a common understanding of the problem, I believe the government and private sector can reach a reasonable accommodation.”
During the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection at Stanford University on Friday, President Barack Obama signed an executive order to promote cybersecurity information sharing between private sector companies and the U.S. Government.
Simple mistakes at small companies can lead to big problems up the supply chain: The health insurance industry reflects a deeply interconnected web of companies, including hospitals, doctors, practices, secondary insurance providers, and government programs.
As the fallout continues to emerge around a breach of tens of millions of records held by Anthem, security pundits hope it'll shine a spotlight on the weaknesses in healthcare cybersecurity.
The aftermath of the Anthem breach won’t be pretty. By letting hackers exfiltrate Social Security numbers and other personal data for possibly as many as 80 million individuals, the nation’s second largest healthcare insurer has set itself up to become the poster child for sanctions likely to be imposed under the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, (HIPAA) not to mention shareholder and class action lawsuits.
Just hours after Senate lawmakers voiced concerns about the efficacy of the voluntary cybersecurity framework endorsed by the White House and major industry groups, the nation's second largest health care insurance provider and supporter of voluntary industry standards announced it had become the latest victim of a massive data breach.
Attacker attribution requires reliable information to analyze how the breach was orchestrated internally, identifying the origin of the malicious code (supply chain), and finally tracking down the location of the attackers.
Much like treating a serious illness, the best remedy for an advanced cyber attack is early detection and aggressive treatment.

This has been a cruel summer of cyber-attacks against American companies.

Security pros say latest watering hole attack patterns expose the 'ecosystem of mediocrity' set out by today's baseline of protection.
Experts say a zero-day attack hidden in a U.S. government website highlights key trends in contemporary targeted attacks: Organizations don't possess the layered security to ward off never-before-seen attacks, and they can't effectively respond until damage is done.

CUPERTINO, CA – TaaSera Inc. today announced the release of the NetTrust 2.0 Enterprise Edition for accelerated cyber security incident response and forensic analysis. NetTrust continuously monitors network traffic to correlate and analyze risky behaviors associated with advanced threats and coordinated attacks.
Every day, incident response teams identify, analyze and respond to millions of individual security events. It’s easy to miss critical alerts, and hard to connect the dots across every stage of the cyber kill chain. As a result, it takes an average 8 months to identify compromised systems inside the network perimeter; by then it's too late.
Traditional tools require security analysts to collect, analyze and interpret forensic evidence manually. In contrast, NetTrust’s “FAAR Sight” solution (Forensic Analysis and Advanced Response) automates triage, diagnosis and remediation by providing threat relevance and context across every stage of the infection lifecycle.
“We’re very excited to announce the next generation of our flagship product,” said TaaSera CEO Scott Hartz. “NetTrust allows security professionals to prioritize threats, resulting in maximized efficiency and valuable time saved responding to incidents. By assessing their enterprise risk profile at any given moment, they take a much more proactive security posture.”
FAAR Sight’s advanced threat visualization automatically “connects the dots” across millions of events to deliver risk-based systems analysis, threat classification and forensic drill-down. With NetTrust, security professionals, operations and incident response teams can quickly identify compromised systems, streamline response time and reduce their window of exposure.
Mike Thomas, Senior Security Architect at Erie Insurance, a Fortune 500 company, said, “TaaSera offers a unique approach for accelerating the collection and analysis of forensic evidence critical to effective cyber incident response. By providing context across the post-infection, pre-breach behaviors exhibited by advanced threats, the technology provides a more proactive way to respond to threats.”
NetTrust 2.0 Enterprise Edition includes enhanced threat visualization for ease of deployment, operations and analysis in either physical or virtualized environments. The software includes an integrated suite of automatic threat intelligence updates, as well as comprehensive REST APIs for integration with existing security infrastructure.
Also featured are enhanced rules for monitoring insider threats across web, application and database tiers, and integration with SIEM, Active Directory and vulnerability assessment solutions like QualysGuard and Rapid7.
NetTrust 2.0 Enterprise Edition is available for download today as a software-only virtual appliance, or as a network appliance. NetTrust is easy to use and quick to deploy, without the need to rely on signatures or build custom rules.
