Cyber Security: Extending cybersecurity to fraud analytics

Information security leaders often defend against cyber threats by focusing on traditional IT tools and techniques -- firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, malware detection and analysis and the like. As organizations have locked down systems with more sophisticated defense-in-depth technical controls, adversaries have evolved to take advantage of information systems by impersonating regular users.

Online fraud detection: Trend Micro Predicts More Sophisticated Cyber-Attacks in 2017

Companies around the world are under constant cyber-attack. Cyber-criminals in 2016 were able to target companies on several fronts, hitting them with distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that knocked their web applications offline and cut them off from their customers for hours at a time. They used phishing attacks to dupe employees into disclosing network login information so they could break in and steal data and trade secrets. Unfortunately, security software company Trend Micro says things won’t change very much in 2017. Rather, Trend Micro’s cyber-threat predictions for the New Year suggest hackers will increase their attacks on mobile platforms and the internet of things (IoT). They also will continue their practice of scamming employees with worthless spam emails and phishing messages. In addition, Trend Micro believes an emerging threat known as cyber-propaganda could be used to foment unrest and destabilize national governments. All the while, hackers are expected to
