SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Netskope, the leading security cloud, today announced Netskope Advanced Analytics. The interactive data analytics service provides rich, in-depth visual dashboards, reports on cloud and web use, and offers data to help organizations measure and understand risk, which results in informed decisions and better security outcomes.

The role of the security team is changing, because applications and data are moving outside of the traditional enterprise perimeter. Today’s application surface area extends beyond the enterprise to include thousands of third party SaaS apps, cloud and web. According to Netskope’s August 2020 Cloud and Threat Report, large organizations are now using more than 7,000 cloud apps with a 161% increase in visits to risky apps and sites between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020. As a result, it has become incredibly difficult and time-consuming for security teams to analyze and deliver clear analytics about the organization’s efforts to protect users and data.

Netskope Advanced Analytics is a business intelligence and big data analytics service, providing organizations with dynamic, real-time views of their cloud risk posture for third party apps, users, and data. Security teams can tap into the power of the Netskope Security Cloud to draw out rich insights, and easily customize reports to provide details that are relevant to each individual organization. For example, when combined with Netskope Next-Gen Secure Web Gateway (SWG), security teams can gain visibility in application use with over 500+ fields of cloud and web metadata. Unlike legacy security vendors, Netskope Advanced Analytics is an intuitive, purpose-built analytics platform that reduces dependencies on external business intelligence tools. This helps security teams get the information they need, spot trends, zero in on areas of concern, and dive into the details.

“Netskope is an indispensable solution for enabling a secure and flexible work style. In addition, Netskope’s Advanced Analytics capabilities, such as the predefined CISO dashboard, make it easy to show the value of deploying Netskope to our executives. The speed and efficiency of reporting are excellent, making it easy to get the insights and results we need exactly when we need it,” said Yuichi Higashihara, Information Security and IT Management, Nikko Chemicals.

“As organizations shift their applications from the data center to the cloud, security teams face new challenges and new fronts in the threat landscape. Organizations have to manage risk, and enforce controls to make sure enterprise data is safe, and a growing number of users are working remotely, making the traditional network perimeter irrelevant. All of these factors create new blind spots for the security team, and stakeholders need better information to protect users and data,” said John Martin, Chief Product Officer, Netskope. “Netskope Advanced Analytics helps organizations understand risk with applications, customize reports for key stakeholders, and build a security program designed to manage the risk with the appropriate security controls to protect data and stop threats.”

Key use cases for Advanced Analytics include:

  • CxO Dashboard: Advanced Analytics provides customers an overview of the key performance indicators of their security program. Designed to be easy to understand in order to keep executive management informed on the organization’s security posture.
  • Data Risk Dashboard: Know where company data is, the risks associated with the applications that organizations are using, and the effectiveness of security policies across the data protection capabilities of the Netskope Security Cloud.
  • Cloud and SaaS Usage and Risk Dashboard: The applications that an organization uses can change overnight, so security practitioners need informed assessments of what’s happening. Monitor application adoption, identify the potential for risk, and implement appropriate security policies for safe adoption in conformance with the organizations’ needs.
  • Web and Cloud-Enabled Threat Dashboard: Cloud-enabled threats are changing the ways organizations think about security. Instead of just blocking bad sites, organizations must have a deep understanding of how cloud applications are used and who is accessing them. Advanced Analytics provides a crystal clear view of threats to users and data with the details to assist with investigations.

Protecting Company Data From Disaster

“For example, if your business is in an earthquake zone, consider putting your data backup outside that zone.” With this in mind, Braun said, …

CHICAGO — The United States has seen so many hurricanes this season that experts have run through the alphabetical naming convention and are using the Greek alphabet to identify the remaining storms. Meanwhile, wild fires continue to burn along the West Coast and beyond as climate change threatens further natural disasters in the future.

Hurricanes and fires might not be the first images that come to mind when building a cybersecurity system, but their potential to adversely affect a company’s data is very real. So said Doug Braun, director of product marketing for Infrascale, a cybersecurity firm which specializes in data recovery.

Before data can be properly secured, Braun said retailers need to thoroughly assess their existing data landscape and determine the scope of their security needs. “The first rule of data protection is to know all about the ecosystem of the data you are protecting,” said Braun. This process is more than knowing what data an organization has and its physical location. Properly assessing a data landscape also includes knowing how the data is used, with what frequency and by whom. Having this information handy will make any backup or security plan more comprehensive and effective.

Location, Location, Location

It’s important that retailers not put all of their data in one location, Braun said. “Ideally, these locations should be in two separate geographies,” he said. “For example, if your business is in an earthquake zone, consider putting your data backup outside that zone.”

With this in mind, Braun said, it’s important to remember that a company’s data exists both inside and outside of its walls. Especially today with many office employees working from home due to COVID-19, retailers should be aware of the physical location of their data and should put safeguards in place to protect it. “Appropriately identifying data location will enable you to understand how best to institute the appropriate protections—such as encryption, multifactor authentication, and endpoint detection and response—to safeguard it,” said Braun.

The cloud is another potentially effective place to store data, said Braun. “You can rely entirely on the cloud for disaster recovery, or you can keep your spin-up capabilities local and the backup only in the cloud,” he said. To be clear, anything uploaded to the cloud exists on a physical server somewhere. Retailers should ask their data storage provider where those servers are located if they plan on keeping important data on the cloud.

Unseen Threats

Beyond natural disasters, even the safest data centers can be compromised due to a careless or untrained staff. Braun pointed to a 2020 Verizon data breach investigation report that says that 34% of data breaches involve internal actors such as employees.

“Educating your end users how to identify, avoid and report data threats is the most important opportunity an organization has to protect its data,” said Braun. Specifically, employees should know what malware, ransomware and phishing threats look like. They should know who to report to when they find these digital intrusions and they should be aware of any data backup or recovery plans the company has in place.

The truth is cybersecurity threats are tragically common. An Infrascale survey from April reports that ransomware attacks have hit 46% of small and medium businesses, and that 73% of the businesses that were targeted by ransomware paid the ransom to regain access to their data.

“Effective cyberattacks can cause small and medium-size businesses to go out of business,” said Braun. “Beyond the financial implications, there is the threat of data loss, or theft, as the case may be. Any size business without its critical data can’t function properly. That’s where data backup and disaster recovery protection come into play.”

In addition to slowing down operational efficiency, losing data to natural disasters, bad actors or mistakes can be incredibly costly. Research from IBM and the Ponemon Institute’s The Cost of Insider Threats Global Report 2020 found that companies with fewer than 500 employees spend an average of just under $8 million per incident.

To avoid such costs, Braun encouraged retailers to develop a playbook of processes invoking backup and disaster recovery services. He said retailers should establish their recovery point objective (RPO) and acceptable recovery time objective (RTO) when considering strategies to restore lost data.

RPO is the maximum period of time allowed in which data might be lost and unrecoverable—think time between backups. RTO is the maximum period of time allowed in a disaster recovery plan between when critical network functions cease and when they are restored.

Finally, Braun suggested retailers put their data defense and recovery plans to the test to ensure they properly safeguard their digital assets. “This approach will help you iron out any wrinkles related to data disaster recovery,” said Braun. Retailers can simulate natural disasters or data breaches internally to see how quickly and effectively their systems and employees respond.

Retailers may not be able to control the weather around them or the actions of bad online actors, but they can control how their systems and staff respond to an emergency when it matters most.

Salt Lake Chamber – James Fair: Ransomware – How To Fend Off The Formidable Foe

… way you can get your data back without paying. That’s with a backup. Backups are a vital component to protecting your business from ransomware, …

The next thing you need to know is when to worry about ransomware—which is actually the key to preventing it. The trick to ransomware is that once criminals have encrypted your system, there’s really only one way you can get your data back without paying. That’s with a backup. Backups are a vital component to protecting your business from ransomware, but you have to set up your backup system in advance. Further, you want to make sure your backups are controlled with different credentials than other accounts and access is highly restricted.

Even beyond backups, the steps you take right now can mean the difference between triumphing over ransomware or succumbing to it. It’s all about protection and prevention early—before the ransomware has locked you out of your systems.

Why Does Ransomware Matter?

I think we all understand this one by now, but to put it more clearly, you need to be thinking about ransomware because it can cost your business money. And not just a little bit of money. The average cost of a ransomware attack is $761,106. And 73% of cybercriminals succeed in encrypting data. Considering these two facts together, if you haven’t already begun preparing for and protecting your business from ransomware, now’s the time to start. Investing in cybersecurity will also cost your business some money but mitigating the risk of ransomware makes it a worthwhile investment.

How to Protect Your Business from Ransomware?

Finally, how do you actually protect your business from this threat? Well, to start, a few important steps to take are enabling multi-factor authentication for all logins, creating backups in the cloud, installing anti-ransomware, and training your employees to spot and avoid phishing emails. It’s also never a bad idea to consult with a technology provider. They can help create cybersecurity plans specific to your organization that provide protection from ransomware and other cyber threats without breaking the bank. In the end, ransomware is a formidable foe, but it can be defeated with the right armor in place.

NIST Releases Draft Cybersecurity Guidance, Develops GPS-Free Backup for Timing Systems

NIST’s new cybersecurity profile is designed to help mitigate risks to systems that use positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) data, including systems …

A city in daylight represents systems that the profile covers, such as our energy, transportation and finance infrastructure. Nearby, in darkness, a dish antenna broadcasting a signal to several satellites represents what lies beyond the scope of the profile, including ground or space based source signal generators and providers.

NIST’s new cybersecurity profile is designed to help mitigate risks to systems that use positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) data, including systems that underpin modern finance, transportation, energy and other critical infrastructure. While its scope does not include ground- or space-based PNT source signal generators and providers (such as satellites), the profile still covers a wide swath of technologies.

Taking another step toward strengthening the nation’s critical infrastructure, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has drafted guidelines for applying its Cybersecurity Framework to critical technologies such as the Global Positioning System (GPS) that use positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) data. Part of a larger NIST effort to implement a recent Executive Order to safeguard systems that rely on PNT data, these cybersecurity guidelines accompany recent NIST efforts to provide and test a resilient timekeeping signal that is independent of GPS.

Formally titled the Cybersecurity Profile for the Responsible Use of Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) Services (NISTIR 8323), the new guidelines are designed to help mitigate cybersecurity risks that endanger systems important to national and economic security, including those that underpin modern finance, transportation, energy and additional economic sectors. The agency is requesting public comment on the draft by Nov. 23, 2020.

The draft profile is part of NIST’s response to the Feb. 12, 2020, Executive Order 13905, Strengthening National Resilience Through Responsible Use of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Services. Earlier this year, NIST sought public input regarding the general use of PNT data.
