Cybersecurity never sleeps — and what’s new today could be old tomorrow. In the spirit of continuous learning, we’ve rounded up a few resources to help you stay on top of your game.
“Highlights from the Unit 42 Cloud Threat Report, 1H 2021,” by Unit 42: Palo Alto Networks’ global threat intelligence team breaks down the impact of COVID-19 on security of organizations around the world, sharing key findings around types of threats, industries most affected, cloud security trends and how organizations should respond. Find it online here.
“Breaking Into Cybersecurity,” with Renee Small and Christophe Foulon: Interested in learning how others broke into the cybersecurity field? Hosts Renee Small and Christophe Foulon interview professionals across the industry to learn their story. Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and wherever else you listen to podcasts.
Fuel Glossary: We’ve all been there, talking about work projects or the latest in industry news, when suddenly someone mentions a term you’ve never heard of. Or worse, a word you should know but can’t seem to remember what it means. With the help of the Fuel Editorial Advisory Committee, we’ve rounded up a list of common words and terms you’ve always wanted to know but were too afraid to ask. View it online here.
“Well Aware,” by George Finney: The Fuel Board of Directors’ own George Finney recently published this security handbook for people. There is no need to be technically-adept, or even in IT, to gain valuable insight from this book. Using anecdotes and real-world analogies, Finney explains the nine habits he believes are crucial to master cybersecurity. Once mastered, these habits can be integrated into everyday responses and decisions to increase your security at home, in the office and beyond. Read a review of the book from the Fuel Editorial Advisory Committee and find it wherever books are sold.
“Automating Internal Defenses With Attivo and Palo Alto Networks”: One of the biggest challenges organizations face in preventing a breach is detecting the attack early enough to stop the adversary and minimize the damages. While organizations implement prevention solutions to keep attackers out, advanced adversaries still find ways to evade defenses and infiltrate the network. Once they get in, there is a small but critical window between the attacker escaping into the network and the defender finding and stopping the incursion.
Palo Alto Networks and Attivo Networks work together in several ways to detect attackers quickly into this window before they move laterally within the network. Learn how the unparalleled visibility and detection that Attivo provides and the blocking and automation from Palo Alto Networks reduce an organization’s mean time to detection (MTTD) and mean time to remediation (MTTR), derailing attacks early in the attack cycle.
