Financial services firms have never faced a more agile and determined online foe. Barclays Global CISO Troels Oerting said recently that elite cybercrime gangs armed with advanced malware and a sophisticated skillset pose a major threat to the industry. They can get deeper inside networks, stay hidden for longer and steal more data than ever before. Additionally, as if that weren’t enough to worry about, coming European data protection laws will introduce a stringent new set of requirements and penalties on businesses, forcing improvements to cybersecurity.

Deception technologies such as honeypots are becoming increasingly popular with enterprises as the products get more flexible and the tools allow security analysts swamped with incident reports to zero in on cases of actual ongoing infiltration. According to a report released in August by research firm Technavio, the deception technology market is growing at a compound annual growth rate of 9 percent, and is predicted to reach $1.33 billion by 2020.

Organizations have historically dealt with breach attempts by trying to block the hacker as fast as possible and only stopping to investigate after the fact. But now, the security community is starting to adopt a new approach: Letting attacks play out in controlled conditions to gain a deeper understanding of the threat. The method is being popularized mainly by emerging startups like Israel’s GuardiCore Ltd., which raised $20 million in funding this morning to fuel its efforts.

CISOs developing a roadmap to secure their cloud environments should be prepared for significantly more orchestration work than for securing SaaS. With the extra work will come significant rewards. Bold CIOs and CISOs will take a leap of faith and partner with security innovators to orchestrate their own cloud security systems. GuardiCore and deception technology is listed as one of them.

With firewalls no longer seen as enough of a defense against security breaches, companies are looking at new tools to foil hackers trying to enter a computer network. U.S. and Israeli startups are leading the way, with new approaches such as “honeytraps” that lure a hacker to fake data or “polymorphic” technology that constantly changes the structure of applications running on a computer.

The year’s most significant attacks highlight how hackers are changing tactics — and how IT security must evolve in the year ahead. Not a week went by in 2015 without a major data breach, significant attack campaign, or serious vulnerability report. Many of the incidents were the result of disabled security controls, implementation errors, or other basic security mistakes, highlighting how far organizations have to go in nailing down IT security basics.

Opportunistic hackers are far from the limelight these days but they still exist and can cause large amounts of damage if they manage to break into your systems. We’ve recently observed our Data Center Security Suite catch such a hacker, an “Alex” from Romania who has kindly enough supplied his own name and private domain for publicity.
