Posted by Morphisec Team on Jan 11, 2018 10:16:00 PM

With a turbulent 2017 finally behind us, what’s the cybersecurity forecast for 2018?

Meltdown and Spectre: Where the Real Risks Lie

Posted by Michael Gorelik on Jan 5, 2018 4:58:45 PM

The IT world is still shaking from the news that most modern processors have severe architecture flaws. This makes it possible for attackers to gain access to user mode and kernel memory data to leak crypto-keys, passwords, memory structures like loaded module addresses and other valuable information. The security flaws potentially affect all major CPUs, including chips manufactured by Intel, AMD and ARM.

Threat Profile: SIGMA Ransomware

Posted by Roy Moshailov on Dec 20, 2017 1:44:00 AM

 

Ransomware remained a major cybersecurity threat in 2017, leaving a trail of victims across all industries, company sizes and geographical borders. Phishing emails are the top ransomware delivery mechanism and they grow in number and sophistication daily. According to IBM, the number of ransomware-infected emails increased 6,000% this year. And the days of easily spotted spelling mistakes and obvious scams are long gone. Today’s phishing attacks are clever and subtle enough to trick even security veterans.

How to Create a Safer Shopping Experience

Posted by Mordechai Guri, Ph.D. on Dec 6, 2017 11:11:58 PM

The annual holiday season has arrived. The air grows crisp (at least in the Northern hemisphere), new, cool gadgets are released and cyberattacks, along with cologne ads, proliferate. Cyber threats aren’t deterring shoppers though: The National Retail Federation expects online holiday sales to increase by 7 to 10 percent over last year, reaching as much as $117 billion. With e-commerce attacks in Q3 2016 increasing by 60 percent over the previous year, shopping hazards can hit from all sides. From phishing sites to online card skimming to compromised terminals in stores; even gifts themselves pose security risks. Still, there is much both consumers and retailers can do in order to make an all around safer shopping experience.

Cybersecurity Scholarship Program Off and Running

Posted by Ursula Ron on Nov 18, 2017 1:16:10 AM

Last month, without much fanfare, Morphisec announced the launch of its Women in Cybersecurity Scholarships. The program arose from a chance discussion between Netta Schmeidler, our VP Product, and me. She was describing how she felt so lucky that an encounter in her life at a critical point led her down this career path. We began talking about what we as individuals, as a company and as an industry could do to encourage girls to explore the field.

Preventing Bad Rabbit Is Only Remarkable If It's Unremarkable

Posted by Arthur Braunstein on Oct 27, 2017 8:55:00 PM

In the last 48 hours, a hurricane of e-mails has crossed my Inbox, with breathless and self-congratulatory subject lines like "Our latest release detects Bad Rabbit" and "XYZ now protects XYZ customers from Bad Rabbit." In other words, "If you use our product, you were exposed to Bad Rabbit, but now that we know about it (from someone else) we deployed an update." Once you decode the messages, it’s clear that the content is not newsworthy, differentiating or exciting, it’s just an excuse to partake in the latest frenzy.

Career Path in Cybersecurity Still Steep for Women

Posted by Netta Schmeidler on Oct 25, 2017 5:35:45 AM

 

Much has been written about the high barriers to entry for women in cybersecurity. Certainly the numbers are depressing. Women make up just 11% of the world’s information security workforce, according to the 2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study. This is far behind other industries.

For example, in the U.S. women represent nearly 47% of total workers and 51.5 % of management and professional positions. They account for 60% of pharmacists and 34% of doctors. Even the IT and computing industry, notorious for low female participation, puts cybersecurity to shame with 26% of positions held by women.
