Zscaler 2023 Ransomware Report: “Nearly 40 Percent Increase in Global Ransomware Attacks”

Zscaler, a leader in cloud security, today announced the release of the 2023 ThreatLabz Ransomware Report. This year’s report tracks the ongoing increase in complex ransomware attacks and spotlights recent ransomware trends, including the targeting of public entities and organizations with cyber insurance, growth of ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), and encryption-less extortion. Since April 2022, ThreatLabz has identified thefts of several terabytes of data as part of several successful ransomware attacks, which were then used to extort ransoms. The evolution of ransomware is characterized by the inverse relationship between attack sophistication and barrier of entry for new cybercriminal groups. The barrier of entry has decreased, while cyberattacks have grown in sophistication, due to the prevalence of RaaS, a model where threat actors sell their services on the dark web for 70-80 percent of ransomware profits. This business model has continued to increase in popularity over the last few years as evidenced by the frequency of ransomware attacks, which increased by nearly 40 percent over the last year. One of the most noteworthy trends that aligned with this growth in 2023 has been the growth of encryption-less extortion, a style of cyberattack that prioritizes data exfiltration over disruptive encryption methods.

Asimily Announces Partnership and Integration with HANDLE Global

Asimily, an Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) risk management platform, this week announced an integration between Asimily and CCM (Capital Cycle Management), the AI-driven software solution from HANDLE Global that optimizes the entire capital cycle from initial planning to the procurement, management, and disposition of equipment. The new integration of Asimily with CCM provides a single platform where healthcare system supply chain, security, and IT teams gain a holistic and always-current view of their organization’s internet-connected assets. This equipment visibility enables healthcare organizations to determine which assets or manufacturers are at risk of cybersecurity issues, and to track the status of cyber-related warnings and recalls. Asimily uses AI-based analysis to prioritize exploitable vulnerabilities and prescribe targeted, clinically-viable remediations— and also identify when remediations are not possible and which assets may need to be replaced. This critical information is dispatched to CCM to ensure that it is considered a key priority during the capital planning process and encourages a shift from reactive to proactive cybersecurity risk management. CCM allows health systems to tailor priorities based on customizable risk thresholds for threats to cybersecurity, patient safety, product standardization, and other factors provided by Asimily’s IoMT risk remediation platform.

“Yes, And…”: Improv Principles Applied to Cybersecurity

George Just of ThreatBlockr takes the stage and shows us how to apply “Yes, and” improv principles to cybersecurity.

A number of years ago, I taught Chicago-style improv to salespeople. I did this for a few reasons. One, it was fun, and I enjoyed it immensely. Second – and probably more importantly – the core improv tenet of “yes, and” fundamentally shaped how I approach all business endeavors, and it has paid off. Literally, the single most effective sales skill, providing the highest ROI, that I have ever learned. Most recently, this has been especially salient when I talk to people about how to approach evaluating and selecting cybersecurity technologies.

Fortifying Your Rugged Endpoints with UEM

Apu Pavithran of Hexnode examines how UEM can be utilized to secure rugged endpoints and other IoT devices.

The story of rugged devices dates back three decades ago, when Husky Computers created one of the first industrial mobile computers. Despite its limited functionality, it pioneered the development of rugged devices. Today, with the augmentation in connectivity and the advancements in IoT, smart, rugged devices have emerged as a new generation of durable devices. These smart devices have expanded the rugged sector from its historical focus on mining and construction to various other sectors like logistics, healthcare, and the military due to their resilience against extreme conditions, dust, and dirt. Owing to the unprecedented usage of rugged devices, the market is expected to grow by USD 16,905.6 million by 2030. However, these escalating figures pose a significant challenge when it comes to management. In traditional IT environments, device management was relatively straightforward. Devices were typically connected to a central server or network, allowing administrators to manage and monitor them remotely. However, in the rugged ecosystem, devices are often deployed in remote locations with limited connectivity. While this makes device management more complex and challenging, several game-changing technologies are emerging to address these challenges.

AI-Assisted Monitoring at the Edge

“Cybercriminals get to choose when and where they attack, but it’s unlikely that a business’ internal cybersecurity team is equally ready and waiting to counterstrike at 2am over a long holiday weekend. While adversaries always seem to be a step ahead, CISOs must focus on actively monitoring key web applications. Proven to be a difficult, but necessary endeavor, application defects require priority alignment with development teams, and protection tools must comply with customer experience (CX) and governance requirements.

For success, CISOs must look to implement best practices that both minimize CX mistakes and rapidly address them. This requires extensive testing with the organization’s application (not just a generic tool) and the services of a 24x7x365 end-user facing expert response team. So, where do you find these people, how do you afford them, and how long until they are executing with Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) 3.0+ maturity? By applying the same rigorous tests to their security operations models as they do their software design, CISOs can be granted a head start. They must also build a compelling business case for an adequate security budget – while working to empower their security team to write code objects that manipulate the behavior of applications and eliminate threats and risks. Further, edge compute can introduce a range of benefits as well. At a time where tools on their own are not enough, it provides a genuine alternative to advocating with the development manager. Consider outsourcing to specialist teams, or even augmenting internal teams with AI and apply it to the tasks of risk elimination and threat containment.”
