Ransomware has taken the world by storm. CryptoWall extorted an estimated $18 million, and WannaCry locked up more than 230,000 computers across the globe in 2017. Companies of all sizes are sitting up and taking notice. Even brands with a strong security investment have fallen victim. We’ve seen ransomware cripple businesses: nearly 19% of businesses stop operations immediately after discovering a ransomware attack.1 Hospital emergency rooms forced to turn people away; global shipping logistics experience massive disruption; and even a summer blockbuster movie held up for ransom. The FBI estimates ransomware is now a billion-dollar business. Ransomware has been around for a while, and it has spiked in recent years. It secured 5th place as the most common variety of malware in 2017, up from 22nd place in 2014.2 Originally ransomware targeted individuals and was considered a consumer nuisance. It has now become a business menace.

We live in an era of digital transformation. Software is the backbone of this digital transformation. Mobile, cloud, open source, Internet of Things, microservices and AI have made software more complex. Over 80% of the code in today’s software applications is open source. Estimates show that there will be 30 billion connected IOT devices by 2020. Furthermore, 85% of customer interactions will be computer managed by 2020. Software is everywhere. While software has gotten more complex, timeto-market is the new name of the game and enterprises can’t risk security slowing this down.

Every day, companies generate mountains of data that are critical to their business. With that data comes a clear challenge: How do you protect exabytes of data that's strewn across global data centers, computer rooms, remote offices, laptops, desktops, and mobile devices, as well as hosted by many different cloud providers, without choking business agility, employee productivity, and customer experience? The solution lies not in throwing more technology at the network, but in taking specific steps to identify malicious actions and respond to them in order to fix the issue, a process known as operationalizing security.

From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded. The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

Every day an average of 30,000 new websites are identified as distributing malicious code to site visitors. This helped contribute to the 43% of U.S. companies that experienced data breaches in 2014 alone. But not all dangers to computers and laptops come from malicious code picked up over the Internet. A study by IDC and the National University of Singapore revealed that in 2014, businesses worldwide would spend nearly $500 billion to deal with the problems caused by malware on pirated software.

No one in today’s highly connected world is exempt from security threats like phishing, ransomware, or denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Certainly not Google. Google operates seven services with more than one billion active users each (including Google Search, YouTube, Maps, and Gmail). We see every type of attack, bad software, and bad actors—multiple times a day—and we’re proud of what our people, processes, and technology do to stop them. Google has published more than 160 academic research papers on computer security, privacy, and abuse prevention and has privately warned other software companies of weaknesses discovered in their systems. Within Google, we enforce a zero-trust security model, which monitors every device on the internal network.

The truth is that they can get a lot worse – and no one is immune. Your company’s data has never been at greater risk. There is no doubt that 2014 was a dire year for many organizations, as they failed to properly protect their computer systems and the data held upon them. As if it wasn’t bad enough keeping on top of new zero-day vulnerabilities, targeted attacks, and revelations of state-sponsored espionage, users are potentially exposing companies’ most important data by not following best practices and using consumer-grade cloud services that aren’t built with enterprise needs in mind. An ever more mobile workforce wants to work on their files remotely but may be taking dangerous risks with sensitive corporate data at the same time. In this white paper, we detail some of the biggest computer security threats of the last year and offer some predictions on what we can expect to see in 2015.

A point of sale system is unlike any other piece of technology employed by businesses. It is a sophisticated computer system that manages sensitive customer data in a public space, often accessible by a large number of employees, in addition to customers or anyone else in the area. Because of this, it’s a unique target for compromised data. Plus, it’s mission-critical nature means compromised systems can bring a business to a halt, resulting in lost business. It is estimated that organizations have a one-in-four chance of experiencing a data breach1. Within the business space, it’s estimated that 89 percent of retail data breaches were targeted at point of sale systems, according to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Report2. At HP, data integrity is of utmost importance, and we have prioritized advanced security in our technology at every step of the design process.

If your company relies on passwords to prevent unauthorized computer access, or low-tech memory cards (e.g., swipe cards) for facility access, you have security on par with the average 1980s car. Smart credentials — embedded in plastic smartcards, USB tokens or mobile devices — offer companies advanced and versatile user authentication features. This white paper discusses the advantages of using smart credentials for multifunction access; describes the hardware and software components used in a smart credential environment; and provides questions to ask when searching for a smart credential solution provider.

Computer networks are built to facilitate the flow of communication, not stop it. Unfortunately, data packets can be manipulated to look normal yet contain an exploit. These techniques evade standard security measures and, in most cases, can deliver a malicious payload without detection. Often, these advanced evasion techniques (AETs) take advantage of rarely used protocol properties in unexpected combinations. Most network security devices are not capable of detecting them. While many pass industry tests with high ratings, those ratings are based on protection against a limited number of threats. The exact number of AETs is unknown, but it is close to hundreds of millions. To defend against AETs, your network security should incorporate seven critical features into your next gen firewall.
