What is your multi-cloud strategy? Today it is not uncommon for organizations to be running a mix of public infrastructure as a service (IaaS) environments, such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. In fact, a recent study concluded that one-third of the world’s companies are using four or more cloud vendors in their day-to-day operations.

Developing a Cybersecurity Protocol

Posted by Fuel HQ on Jan 24, 2018 4:05:26 PM

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Cybersecurity threats come at a rapid pace these days—or so it seems. That leaves security professionals with very little room for error and the need to eliminate uncertainty in the process.

Here’s where protocol becomes your best friend; a clear progression of steps to take in the face of an immediate threat. Better yet, Fuel volunteer Paul Carter asks, can that protocol be standardized across organizations? He believes so and, in response, developed the DDIVE Model –which stands for Detect, Design, Implement, Validate, Establish. A security-focused response to incidents that will ensure viable options are considered, implemented and documented, DDIVE is designed to be adaptable and repeatable.

3 Strategies for Faster Threat Detection and Response

The ability to detect an attack and respond to it quickly can be the difference between a minor incident and a breach that costs resources and reputation. The good news is that organizations are making strides in security breach detection, according to the 2017 Trustwave Global Security Report, which examines the results of thousands of investigations into security incidents. 

When looking at incidents in 2016, the median time from intrusion to detection of a compromise fell to 49 days, down from 80.5 days in 2015. As tools such as managed security service (MSS) providers and artificial intelligence are more widely developed and deployed, the median time between intrusion and detection could fall even further this year.

Here are three strategies to consider when looking to improve detection and response before threats take root and cause damage.

The Importance of Network Visibility in a Growing Threat Landscape

Posted by Fuel HQ on Dec 19, 2017 9:15:45 AM

Tuseday, December 19, 2017

Network security is increasingly complex, and busy security teams face the challenge of needing full visibility and threat detection capabilities. Network visibility is a key step in preventing cybersecurity attacks, but the reality is that resource-constrained teams already support a wide range of security appliances to help guard their companies from a growing threat landscape. In some cases, they are managing more than any one person, or even team, can use effectively. What can cybersecurity professionals do to address this concern while maintaining efficiency and avoiding resource strain?

3 Strategies to Better Secure Point-to-Point VPNs

Many of us have the task of connecting our network to trusted vendors and partners. While this will make it easier for business to get done, it can also open us to threats. Remember the Target hack? That was the worst possible result for a point-to-point VPN. Target had set up a VPN between their network and a small HVAC vendor, who only had one IT person on their staff. This was the vector which the hackers exploited to access the Target network.

There are several preventative measures you can take to make your network as secure as possible.
