Is your supplier or partner, or a new acquisition of yours a potential threat? If you’re reading this, you’re probably asking yourself the same thing.
Third-party vendor risks have become a pressing concern among businesses in the wake of recent supply chain attacks. Around 59% of organizations have encountered an attack that can be traced back to their suppliers. This number has probably increased as reports of new vendor-caused attacks make headlines every day.
Many organizations believe that vendor risk assessment should be a high priority as they engage with more service providers. Unfortunately, most do not have the resources to do so. Among those who do, only 36% believe that their third-party risk management programs work.Continue reading
If you’re a newcomer, by now you’re probably well-acquainted with the fact that a great website or product means nothing if nobody’s going to see it. If you want to get in front of your prospective customers, you have to know two things: who they are and how to find them.
There are two ways to reach your audience via search engines: organically, through a wise SEO strategy, and using paid ads.
While paying for the ads may be the easiest way, it is not a sustainable long-term solution. That is why improving your website’s SEO content is the best way to grow your online presence and business.
In this article, we’ll talk about two core strategies and unique cyber intelligence API tools you can use to boost your SEO. As the world of digital marketing is changing due to new privacy regulations, the way websites gather data on its users has to evolve. Cyber intelligence is a revolutionary way to adjust to these changes and get ahead of your competitors. Want to find out more? Keep on reading!Continue reading
A threat defense system that runs separately from operation systems and applications is comparable to a bank with security guards who do not possess any firearms, metal detectors, or radio equipment. Anyone can get assess in that this establishment's security is fragile, and there's a good chance that robbers can get whatever they want. Sure, the guards can try to protect the bank with hand-to-hand combat, but that's no match for the robbers' guns.
Ridiculous as it may sound, most organizations' cybersecurity infrastructure works in the same way — with blind spots between their threat intelligence gathering and response tools. As a result, cybercriminals can quickly launch attacks on digital infrastructure. No matter how well an organization designs its threat defense, if there is no efficient correlation, it won't be as effective.
In this post, we examined some of the most common threat correlation challenges and how Domain Research Monitoring tools, such as a Website Contacts API and Domain Reputation API, can help organizations face them.Continue reading
Sometime back we introduced 2 product solutions to help provide clearly defined website Intel in the form of Website Categorization API & Website Contacts API. Both the APIs combine the application of machine learning with the versatility of rules defined by experts and deploy artificial intelligence to obtain precise results. This enables our users to conduct their research from a single source instead of manually examining multiple sources.Continue reading
A simple rule applies in today’s infosec environment: organizations must consider the effectiveness of their threat data sources. In fact, this should be a primary concern, especially if they wish to get the most out of their threat intelligence platform. But not all companies know which sources of threat intelligence can benefit them.
TIPs are critical for many enterprises. A TIP is capable of collecting and managing threat data coming from multiple external sources. It lets companies correlate the information with one another to come up with insightful findings. This process allows them to identify which threats they need to prioritize. A TIP can also reduce risks by answering who is responsible for and what comprises an attack.
So, just like any data analytics software, what organizations get from a TIP largely depends on what goes into it. After all, TIPs consume threat intelligence, which is why the sources they get them from should be topnotch.
But how can one distinguish good threat intelligence sources from bad ones? Let’s take a look at the following four criteria.Continue reading
Digital rights management (DRM) is a systematic approach to copyright protection for all kinds of digital media. It prevents unauthorized redistribution of digital media and stops consumers from copying the content they purchase.
DRM products were developed in response to a rapid rise in online piracy of commercially marketed materials aided by the widespread use of peer-to-peer (P2P) file exchange applications, more widely known as torrent clients.
DRM is typically implemented by embedding code in materials to prevent users from copying them. At times, it limits the amount of time when content can be accessed or the number of devices the media can be consumed on. Despite its widespread use, however, online piracy still runs rampant.
So, what can digital media producers do to protect their intellectual property from online pirates? Would limiting access to their distribution platforms help? How do they make sure that they’re not keeping legitimate consumers out along with the digital pirates? These are just some of the questions that this post answers.Continue reading
The IT security climate these days is pretty unpredictable. A study by the University of Maryland states that a security incident occurs every 39 seconds. Companies around the world are, in fact, increasingly suffering from Web-based attacks, not to mention the fact that the average cost of a data breach has skyrocketed.
The good news is that there is a wide range of measures that in-house cybersecurity professionals can employ against threats. One effective solution is Domain Name System (DNS) filtering.
Depending on how it is implemented, DNS filtering can provide advanced network setting controls to enhance online safety. It can protect organizations from threats like botnet, phishing, and other malware-instigated attacks. The great thing about it is that a website categorization database can supplement it. Such a database is thus an excellent resource for managed security service providers (MSSPs) and the like.Continue reading
The demand for managed security services has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past years. The reason for this trend is that organizations of all sizes need to monitor their IT systems around the clock and manage incidents and breaches in real time. Yet, they may not have the means necessary to do that on their own as it requires significant investment in infrastructure and human resources.
Adding to that, traditional security measures have a hard time catching up with today’s more advanced threats. The fast-paced and increasingly connected environments require next-generation technologies and techniques, which enable MSSPs to protect their clients’ complex environments.
In this post, we’ll discuss what these next-generation capabilities are, why they are essential, and how web page categorization can improve them.Continue reading
