Some of the most infamous cyber security breaches to US Federal systems in recent years were caused via a previous breach to a contractor’s system. Some of the most notable cases were the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) breach where officials said that the thieves broke in by using stolen contractor logins and passwords and the Lockheed hack.

This is the first in a series of posts about ransomware, dealing with ransomware history, technological developments and GuardiCore forecast for future trends.
Ransomware is malware that infects your computer systems and restricts access to it, until a ransom is paid. Once your computer is infected, the malware hijacks your files, locks them up with virtually unbreakable encryption and demands a ransom of up to $2000 in Bitcoins to unscramble them. Read more

A couple of years ago Netflix introduced a concept they called a “Simian Army“. The idea was to have a bunch of automated processes that checked their cloud’s resilience to various failure scenarios. A prime example was a “Chaos Monkey” which randomly shuts down servers in their infrastructure to test the application’s ability to withstand server failures. When you know that a Chaos Monkey is running free in your infrastructure and your service stays up you know that you are can handle server failure effectively. We think that a similar approach applies to securing cloud infrastructure. Read more

In a recent piece in Forbes following the Anthem data-security breach, legendary venture capitalist Vinod Khosla wrote “There’s a universal truth regarding every cyber-attack: attack behavior never appears normal”.

Let’s consider a different example, the recent Carbanak cyber crime campaign, through which over 100 global banks were robbed of an estimated one billion dollars. The technology aspect of the attacks got the most media attention. However, in reality the technology was not nearly as advanced as state-of-the-art technology used by some intelligence agencies around the world (e.g. Stuxnet, Flame or the Equation Group). Read more
