Threat Detection


AWS threat detection using CloudTrail and Sysdig Secure

Implementing AWS threat detection with Sysdig Secure takes just a few minutes. Discover how to improve the security of your cloud infrastructure using AWS CloudTrail and Sysdig Cloud Connector. With the rise of microservices and DevOps practices, a new level of dangerous actors threatens the cloud environment that governs all of your infrastructure. A malicious or inattentive cloud API request could have a sizable impact on availability, performance, and last but not least, billing.


Forging Better Security Outcomes with Integrated Threat Intelligence

For most companies, security and IT systems are growing in complexity, breadth of scope, and coverage, which consumes budget and staff time. The rapid breakdown of the traditional perimeter in this “new normal” world increases the challenges IT teams and remote users face on a daily basis.

Using Private Threat Intelligence Feeds on Hidden Security Attacks with

Oftentimes, security attacks that were clearly recorded in logs go unnoticed. They are obscured by a large sea of log data created by most modern cloud environments. In some cases, like during a DDoS attack, there will be a huge spike in logs so it will be very clear what happened. In other situations, just a few logs will document the attack. Finding these logs can be like finding a needle in a hay stack. But if you know what to looks for, it doesn’t need to be so hard to spot these attacks.

Guard Your Business Like a Warrior with These 10 Tools

Cybersecurity has been a core issue in business management and growth. As businesses try to manage more remote teams, it’s important now more than ever. With technology becoming an integral part of our everyday lives, we’re exposed to an ever-growing risk of cyber-attacks and malicious technological crimes. According to a recent study, on average, hack attacks occur every 39 seconds. That is, one in three Americans is a victim of cybercrime every year.


Practical security engineering: Stateful detection

Detection engineering at Elastic is both a set of reliable principles — or methodologies — and a collection of effective tools. In this series, we’ll share some of the foundational concepts that we’ve discovered over time to deliver resilient detection logic. In this blog post, we will share a concept we call stateful detection and explain why it's important for detection.

Email security in the post-COVID-19 era

Following the outbreak of COVID-19, organizations around the world have rapidly adopted remote work policies, making email communication more important than ever for disparate teams to collaborate. This has made it convenient for threat actors to launch email-based cyberattacks. The FBI has issued a public service announcement in which it revealed that it is anticipating business email compromise (BEC) attacks related to the COVID-19 crisis to increase. Hence, it's imperative for businesses to strengthen email security to mitigate email-borne threats.

4 Reasons Why IT Risk Detection is Critical in the Service Desk

In the previous blog, I discussed how IT risks can infiltrate the service desk if proper incident, problem, and change management aren’t applied. But, IT risk detection in the service desk can act as a safeguard to avoid this. It can help notify service technicians of “prohibited” or questionable items that could cause problems. Here are four reasons why IT risk detection should be incorporated and is critical for successful use of the service desk.


Protecting Fleet Data from Security Threats

Big data is revolutionizing fleet management — specifically in the form of telematics. From engine diagnostics that track fuel efficiency and mileage to sensors that detect aggressive driving behavior and interior vehicle activity, this information is so valuable that we’re quickly approaching the point where connected technology will come standard in every vehicle. Telematics is an operational goldmine.


Best Practices for Scoring Your Environment's Security Measures

For most practical uses today, a combination of hardening and vulnerability detection is required to secure even the most basic digital environment. In each area it is important to see the progress you’re making in these competencies so that you can improve and build on the work you and your team have done over time. But with so many assets in your digital environment, how do you score the effectiveness of these security measures?


OSINT - Using Threat Intelligence to Secure Your Organisation

In my first article on Cyber Security Threat Intelligence Analysts, (CTI analysts) we covered what a CTI analyst is and discussed how they can bridge the gaps between IT, Security, and the Business. We discussed how this is beneficial to the maturity of the business, but what exactly did we mean by this? In the second article of our CTI analyst series, we’ll cover the unique benefits a CTI analyst brings to an organization by enhancing.
