This edition of the ISMG Security Report discusses the latest improvements in deception technology and how best to apply it. Also featured: a report on the growth of mobile fraud, plus insights on Merck's experience recovering from a NotPetya attack.
Deception technology is attractive in that it offers - in theory - low false positives and critical clues to attackers' methodologies. But the benefits depend on its ability to fool attackers and whether organizations can spare the time to fine-tune it.
The group behind the Cloud Atlas cyber espionage campaigns, which were first detected five years ago, is now deploying polymorphic techniques designed to avoid monitoring and detection, according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab.
There is a key shift in the
threat landscape as attackers focus more on attacking
key endpoints and infrastructure. As a result, many
organizations are developing security blind spots.
