The 2017 Global Threat Intelligence Report is out now

Jon-Louis Heimerl

April 25, 2017 - Posted by Jon-Louis Heimerl to Threat Intelligence


We are excited to announce the publication of our new Global Threat Intelligence Report (GTIR). The report is our most comprehensive one yet. Analyzing content from NTT Group companies and data from our new Global Threat Intelligence Center, the GTIR highlights the latest phishing and ransomware attack trends, and the impact of today’s threats against global organizations.

Most cybersecurity reports are meant for security professionals. They are not intended for use by anyone without significant security knowledge and experience. But we have taken a different approach for this year’s GTIR. We want to provide a resource for educating everyone with security responsibilities, from security and IT professionals through to executives, management, and end users. In today’s... read more >

In a recent press release, NTT Security announced the formation of the Global Threat Intelligence Center (GTIC) as a natural evolution of the previously established Security Engineering and Research Team (SERT). As a founding member of the legacy SERT, and current director within the GTIC organization, I am excited to be part of this next great step.

NTT Security SERT Q4 Threat Intelligence Report

The NTT Security SERT (Security Engineering Research Team) released its Q4 ‘16 Threat Intelligence Report today.

During Q4 ’16, NTT Security researchers observed a noticeable shift in the types of attacks from previous quarters – particularly exhibited by a much narrower scope of attack vectors. Several vulnerabilities such as Oracle Server Backup in the retail industry and Linux password files in the finance industry were specifically targeted – likely indicative of criminals identifying specific flaws and crafting attacks to fit, a sign of more sophisticated and directed efforts.

This shift was also evident in an overall 35 percent decrease in total security-related events across client networks from Q3 ’16 to Q4 ’16, including continued declines of 25 percent in... read more >

Big Data

How many times have you heard a new technology or startup described as “innovative and revolutionizing,” “value added solution,” “disrupting industry,” or “making the world a better place”? Personally, I’ve heard these descriptions too many times to count. There are not many technologies that I can think back on and say “yep, they were right!” The advancement and application of big data, however, is definitely at the top of my list.

Big data analytics is an old “new” way of analyzing data. The concepts predate existing technologies, with probabilistic and statistical math. In the last few years, however, the technology has improved, making big data analytics simpler and more accessible. This old “new” way has recently become its own field of expertise and has revolutionized several industries.
