Feature Friday: 5 Cyber Security Issues and how to Address Them

We’ve got a brilliant Feature Friday to share with you this week from Pulsant. Since 1995, Pulsant has been “providing high-quality IT infrastructure services” and now have 15 datacentres in 6 different locations around the UK. This article was written by Director of Professional Services, Todd Whaley, and details 5 ways in which businesses can experience cyber security issues and how to solve and prevent them. So, let’s hand over to the experts to find out more…

Feature Friday: 5 Cyber Security Issues and how to Address Them


5 Cyber Security Issues and how to Address Them

Cyber security has worked its way to the top of the business agenda over the last few years. The reason is easy to understand; just consider that cyber criminals managed to steal £124 million via the internet in 2016. Add to that, it’s estimated that in the first quarter of 2017 alone, UK businesses suffered 43,000 attacks…each. It is not, however, all doom and gloom as far as cyber security is concerned. There are many ways to combat attacks and keep organisations protected, which I’ve summarised in my blog below:

1. ZERO DAY VULNERABILITIES

A zero-day vulnerability refers to a hole in software that is unknown to the vendor. This security hole is then exploited by hackers before the vendor becomes aware and hurries to fix it — this exploit is called a zero-day attack.

There is little that you can do to combat a zero-day vulnerability. A typical enterprise uses firewalls, intrusion-detection systems and antivirus software to secure its mission-critical IT infrastructure. These systems offer good first-level protection, but despite the best efforts of security teams, they can’t protect enterprises against zero-day exploits. By definition, detailed information about zero-day exploits is available only after the exploit is identified.

A good security team will have reliable, preventative security practices in place. These include:

  • Real-time protection software deployed like intrusion-prevention systems (IPS) that offer comprehensive protection
  • Well planned incident response to immediately combat a security breach
  • Mechanisms architected into the network and infrastructure to quickly prevent the spread of the security breach

How to prevent zero-day vulnerabilities

Patch your systems. The most common unpatched and exploited programs are JavaAdobe Reader, and Adobe Flash. It’s been this way for a few years now. But strangely, not a single company that has ever been audited has ever had programs perfectly patched.

The following are key signs you would see when attacked with a zero-day exploit:

  • Unexpected potentially legitimate traffic or substantial scanning activity originating from a client or a server
  • Unexpected traffic on a legitimate port
  • Similar behaviour from the compromised client or server even after the latest patches have been applied

2. PHISHING SCAMS

Phishing is the attempt to obtain sensitive information, such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and, indirectly, money), often for malicious reasons. Scammers send seemingly legitimate emails from trustworthy sources.

Most phishing scams are fairly transparent, and sophisticated users rarely fall for pop-ups asking for a password. However, attacks could soon include a password text box cloned over a legitimate one to trick users into delivering their passwords to an attacker. Google is now developing a special password-alert feature to help protect against future phishing attacks.

A good example and the biggest phishing scam was the Nigerian scam, also known as 419.
In every variation of the scam, the email sender is promising obscenely large payments for small unskilled tasks. This scam, like most, is too good to be true. Yet people still fall for this money transfer con game.

Many organisations have software that filter out unsolicited emails. However, this software is not 100% reliable and emails that are dangerous do get through. Therefore, it is essential that you train your user community to identify unsolicited emails.
