The CTA has just released a new joint analysis report on the growing threat of cryptomining, an activity that poses both short and long-term threats to individuals and enterprises. This report lays out the risk, its potential impacts, and the best practices organizations can employ to counter this rising menace.
As a member of the Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA), FortiGuard Labs received critical information and additional findings showing the VPNFilter campaign is targeting significantly more devices than initially thought, and contains additional capabilities, including the ability to deliver exploits to endpoints.
In today’s digital economy, speed and efficiency are essential. So is the ability to access data from anywhere and from any device. These demands are forcing the network to change, increasing the amount of data that networks need to manage and the number of devices connected to those networks. This is responsible for growing the potential attack surface of today’s networks.
While organizations are adopting new technologies and services, cybercriminals are developing sophisticated methods of attack to target new attack vectors, exploit unforeseen vulnerabilities, and gain access to user data and other network resources. With this increased threat landscape and growing sophistication of cyberattacks, visibility into existing security measures, and identifying those places where there may be gaps is especially important.
Globally operating financial services firms have to be aware of new cybersecurity regulations and how they affect their business in order to navigate data rules and remain compliant, especially as they conduct business across borders.

On Wednesday, November, 1st, Fortinet held a critical panel discussion at The Summit, entitled “Winning the Security Battle for Your Enterprise Requires a New Approach.”
Information sharing continues to be a topic that remains timely and vital in global cybersecurity. As an industry, it is well understood that turning the tide on cybercrime requires actionable information sharing across networks, borders, and vendors. Fortinet’s Derek Manky offers some perspective ahead of RSA 2017 in San Francisco. Why is information sharing so important today? Sharing information proactively across all verticals and public or private organizations is essential moving forward. Organizations continue to struggle against...
There is a greater mission on the part of every security vendor to make the world safer and more secure for people to interact, do business, and communicate ideas. Today is a big day for us. Today the Cyber Threat Alliance, founded May 30, 2014, published its first collaborative research project -- an analysis of the CryptoWall version 3 campaign (learn more about this project here). The CryptoWall research report represents the successful culmination of a big project, a 90-day proof of concept effort among the founding members...
