Cyber criminals continue to coordinate advanced attacks on banks and financial institutions. An exclusive Reuters news alert confirms new cyber thefts and advanced hacking techniques have been uncovered and a letter from SWIFT reported, “We unfortunately continue to see cases in which some of our customers’ environments are being compromised.”

Prediction: In 2017, well orchestrated and targeted attacks on global inter-banking networks will continue to rise due to the sophistication of cyber attackers, outdated systems and new inspected security controls not expected until January 2018.

How can financial institutions combat against these well funded, targeted threats? Read on to learn more … 

The First Cyber-Deception Solution to Protect Wire Transfer Networks

To locate a network’s SWIFT system, attackers use APT techniques, diligently discovering the network by moving laterally from host to host. Once SWIFT assets are identified, protocols and processes are revealed, monitored, and mimicked, allowing attackers to steal large amounts of money below the organization’s radar.

illusive networks Wire Transfer Guard™ protects your business, finances, and brand by stopping SWIFT attacks before they start. The solution identifies and suppresses SWIFT attacks long before SWIFT assets are breached, triggering alerts that keep you one step ahead of attackers: safe and in control. 

This solution is purpose-built and unique to the market. Read more about Wire Transfer Guard and be sure to download the Product Brief.

Three Use Cases for Deception Technology in Healthcare
Three Use Cases for Deception Technology in Healthcare‘In today’s healthcare environments, new cyber vulnerabilities and risks open as fast as older ones get remedied. ‘Healthcare providers and insurers are high value targets for cybercriminals. As attackers become more sophisticated, and as IT innovation continues to pick up pace, the escalation of cyber risk can easily overwhelm organizations with limited resources. No matter how much companies invest in security controls, attackers still manage to get in.In this white paper, we describe three use cases that illustrate how deception technology can provide a nimble, easy-to-manage solution for stopping attackers that succeed in bypassing security controls. By planting fake information in the environment and identifying lateral movements, deception technology can: -Protect patient data from both insider and external threats. -Significantly improve security during M&A or other periods of business transformation -Secure operations that depend on legacy systems and proprietary medical technologies
