Book Description :

The newest threat to security has been categorized as the Advanced Persistent Threat or APT. The APT bypasses most of an organization’s current security devices, and is typically carried out by an organized group, such as a foreign nation state or rogue group with both the capability and the intent to persistently and effectively target a specific entity and wreak havoc. Most organizations do not understand how to deal with it and what is needed to protect their network from compromise. In Advanced Persistent Threat: Understanding the Danger and How to Protect your Organization Eric Cole discusses the critical information that readers need to know about APT and how to avoid being a victim. Advanced Persistent Threat is the first comprehensive manual that discusses how attackers are breaking into systems and what to do to protect and defend against these intrusions. How and why organizations are being attacked How to develop a "Risk based Approach to Security" Tools for protecting data and preventing attacks Critical information on how to respond and recover from an intrusion The emerging threat to Cloud based networks

Book Description :

An increasing number of countries develop capabilities for cyber-espionage and sabotage. The sheer number of reported network compromises suggests that some of these countries view cyber-means as integral and well-established elements of their strategical toolbox. At the same time the relevance of such attacks for society and politics is also increasing. Digital means were used to influence the US presidential election in 2016, repeatedly led to power outages in Ukraine, and caused economic losses of hundreds of millions of dollars with a malfunctioning ransomware. In all these cases the question who was behind the attacks is not only relevant from a legal perspective, but also has a political and social dimension. Attribution is the process of tracking and identifying the actors behind these cyber-attacks. Often it is considered an art, not a science. This book systematically analyses how hackers operate, which mistakes they make, and which traces they leave behind. Using examples from real cases the author explains the analytic methods used to ascertain the origin of Advanced Persistent Threats.

Book Description :

"Advanced Persistent Threat Modeling" is an in-depth guide to targeting and compromising high-security environments. With it, you'll learn how to discover and create attack vectors, move unseen through a target enterprise, establish robust command and control, and exfiltrate data even from organizations without a direct connection to the Internet. The purpose is not to instruct the black-hats (they're already doing this) but the relevant stakeholders in your organization. These attack techniques will help you change the current attitudes and approaches to proactive network security, such as penetration testing. This book addresses relevant and timely issues in a way that clearly demonstrates and teaches techniques that can be used to compromise even very secure environments. It will help usher in a new era in penetration testing and get people to think in a different way about security rather than just recycle tired concepts."

Book Description :

While industrial espionage is not new, cyber espionage in the commercial sector is a threat many corporations are not prepared to face. Previously, only government agencies and companies who stored bank account, credit card, or other personally identifiable information (PII) concerned themselves with cyber-attacks. The spectrum of cyber targets has widened, and corporations must adapt to advanced persistent threats (APTs). All intellectual property is now at risk and its loss can result in expensive consequences. Many well-known corporations have become victims of APTs, leading to readily available information on case studies. After this contextual background is established, some applicable countermeasures are addressed. First, current passive defensive tactics and tools, such as firewalls and antivirus programs, are discussed. Specifically, how complete trust in these tools creates a virtual Maginot line. Additionally, the human factor creates its own level of risk. Even if a firewall were infallible, most malware can still enter a system if a user clicks on a malicious link, opens a file containing malicious code, or plugs an infected universal serial bus (USB) flash drive into a computer on a private proprietary network. Balancing convenience with security, however, is an imperative. Simply creating more rules and regulations managing which employee actions are permitted and which are prohibited can help mitigate the threat, but attacks are still possible. This can also frustrate users into circumventing any security measures they deem unnecessary inconveniences. This capstone project focuses on making corporations more aware of both the growing problem and possible solutions.

Book Description :

With Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) becoming a larger threat among the cyber world, it is important that software is designed with security in mind. In order to aide this process, software developers can use security design patterns when creating systems. This helps to ensure that all aspects of a system’s design are concerned with security, because any one point of weakness can still lead to the compromise of the entire system. We propose a method of determining if a system contains a specific security pattern, and we suggest several security patterns which might be helpful in deterring a specific APT. We utilize an algorithm based on graph homomorphism theory that gives a metric for how close a Unified Modeling Language (UML) model is to being a realization of a security pattern, from which it may be verified that a system is indeed a realization of the Role Based Modeling Language (RBML) model of the pattern. We find that our distance metric gives the desired result for several example applications.

Since 2003, cybersecurity author Richard Bejtlich has been writing posts on TaoSecurity Blog, a site with 15 million views since 2011. Now, after re-reading over 3,000 posts and approximately one million words, he has selected and republished the very best entries from 17 years of writing. In the second volume of the TaoSecurity Blog series, Mr. Bejtlich addresses how to detect and respond to intrusions using third party threat intelligence sources, network data, application and infrastructure data, and endpoint data. He assesses government and private security initiatives and applies counterintelligence and counteradversary mindsets to defend digital assets. He documents the events of the last 20 years of Chinese hacking from the perspective of a defender on the front lines, in the pre- and post-APT era. This volume contains some of Mr. Bejtlich's favorite posts, such as histories of threat hunting, so-called black and white hat budgeting, attribution capabilities and limits, and rating information security incidents. He has written new commentaries to accompany each post, some of which would qualify as blog entries in their own right. Read how the security industry, defensive methodologies, and strategies to improve national security have evolved in this new book, written by one of the authors who has seen it all and survived to blog about it.

Book Description :

In this paper we discuss a threat group whose malware is already fairly well-known in the cybersecurity community. This group, unlike the China-based threat actors we track, does not appear to conduct widespread intellectual property theft for economic gain. Nor have we observed the group steal and profit from financial account information. The activity that we profile in this paper appears to be the work of a skilled team of developers and operators collecting intelligence on defense and geopolitical issues, intelligence that would only be useful to a government. We believe that this is an advanced persistent threat (APT) group engaged in espionage against political and military targets including the country of Georgia, Eastern European governments and militaries, and European security organizations since at least 2007. They compile malware samples with Russian language settings during working hours consistent with the time zone of Russia's major cities, including Moscow and St. Petersburg. While we don't have pictures of a building, personas to reveal, or a government agency to name, what we do have is evidence of long-standing, focused operations that indicate a government sponsor, specifically, a government based in Moscow. We are tracking this group as APT28.

Book Description :

Cyber security - A Government, organisational and Public Risk The 2010 National Security Strategy identified cyber attacks as one of the four highest-priority risks faced by the UK. President In the US, President Obama has declared cyber security as one of the most serious economic and national security challenges the US faces as a nation. While usually targeted on specific government or private sector organisations, cyber attacks can, and will, happen to anyone. At the lower level, attacks are more widespread and are initially automated and indiscriminate - any organisation with an Internet presence will be scanned, potentially targeted and attacked. Chinese Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) There is an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) posed by organised crime and state level entities, targeting large multi-national corporations and foreign governments, with the objective of stealing information or compromising information systems. The goal of an APT is not necessarily to bring a business down, but to stay embedded and suck information out of it at a slow, undetected pace. This is a major area of concern, in particular the number and severity of APTs coming out of China. The Chinese will use state sponsored 21 st Century hacking technology to carry out a campaign of targeting and collecting intelligence against their chosen cyber targets, supporting the information necessary to become the next superpower. Understand China's cyber warfare 21st Century Chinese Cyber warfare draws from a combination of business, cultural, historical, linguistic and the author's personal experience to attempt to explain China to the uninitiated. The objective of the book is to raise awareness of the fact that the People's Republic of China is using a combination of their unique culture, language, and political will, known as Chinese Communism, to maintain their cultural heritage. This book is the first to gather the salient information regarding the use of cyber warfare doctrine by the People's Republic of China to promote its own hegemonistic, national self-interests and enforce its political, military and economic will on other nation states. The threat of Chinese Cyberwarfare can no longer be ignored. It is a clear and present danger to the experienced and innocent alike and will be economically, societally and culturally changing and damaging for the nations that are targeted. 21 st Century Chinese Cyber warfare discusses: Statistics of the Chinese Cyber Thr ...
