Preparing Your Cyber Security in the Philippines for 2023

Starting Cyber Security
Cyber Security for 2023 Banner

Businesses in the Philippines are facing an increasingly challenging prospect when it comes to Cyber Security. As the past few years have shown, cyber criminals don’t discriminate when it comes to who they target for attacks. SMBs and enterprises are both fair game when being hit by cyber attacks and data breaches. This is why businesses of all sizes should properly consider their cyber security solutions for 2023 and beyond. However, it is not an easy task to do as threats and trends are always changing due to the fast-paced nature of technology. Many businesses always end up not knowing where to start and if they are being cost-effective with the solutions they are looking into.

To help businesses this 2023, we would like to talk in depth on what preparations and expectations should include for cyber security plans this year.

Four Major Threats to Cyber Security in the Philippines

Cyber Security Philipppines

There are many forms of cyber attacks that have happened in the past few years. The four most frequent attacks have been the following:

  • Business Email Compromise (BEC)
  • Ransomware
  • Password Compromise
  • Account Takeover

Any form of cyber-attack can cost a business a fortune, whether its an SMB or enterprise business, if not handled correctly. This does not even consider the reputational damage and downtime a business can face once it is known to the public. The sad reality is that there is no fool-proof solution that can ensure that your company will never experience a breach. However, there are ways to ensure that you can minimize the chance of it occurring or the impact of the attack to your business.

Cyber Security Measures: Preparing an Incident Response Plan

Cyber Security Awareness

One of the best defenses for your business that many cyber security experts recommend is to create and test an incident response plan. Knowing how to response to certain security situations will help speed up the response time when an attack happens. Businesses should formalize their plan and run practical tests for their team to better handle the different security incidents that can happen. Incident response planning offers businesses the added benefit of giving your team the insight of where security gaps may be in your security systems. Thus, helping you know where to better improve security to prevent attacks from happening.

Investing in Cyber Security Safeguards

Cyber Security Plan 2022

In addition to having an incident response plan, investing into cost-effective security solutions can help reduce the need to implement your plans. Below are a few tools that businesses should look to improve their cyber security this coming 2023:

Multifactor Authentication (MFA) Prevent intrusions via stolen, phished or compromised credentials through verification methods that prove the user’s identity. This can include methods such as two-factor authentication, biometrics, SMS OTP, etc. According to Microsoft, using the extra authentication method can foil almost 99% of account-based cyberattacks.

Email Security – Investing in a good email security goes a long way in today’s security environment. Many of the hardest hitting cyber attacks like ransomware and BEC are email-based.

Backup and Recovery – Backing up business data is very important, especially in the ransomware era. There are many options your company can take when investing in backup solutions. Both on-prem and cloud solutions have their pros and cons, but both work to your companies benefit.

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) – EDR can help businesses detect threats that have evaded other security solutions that are in place. It allows for quicker response time to prevent major damage to your system while also lessening the burden of pressure on your security team with alerts mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK framework.

Gartner Cyber Security Trends

Looking back, cyber security trends were numerous this 2022. This year had many ups and downs in terms of cyber security in the Philippines as many businesses had to shift from office to remote work and now hybrid. These past few years have shown many businesses that their security solutions need to be able to adapt and handle threats that can pop up at any time. To better prepare for 2023, Gartner has published their top cyber security trends of 2022 that you and your business should be aware of.

Cyber Security Trend: Attack Surface Expansion

Cyber Security in the philippines

According to Gartner, 60% of knowledge workers are working remotely, and 18% of these workers will not return to the office. This opens businesses to many risks as more points of entry are now open to cyber criminals to go through. This includes threats associated with open-source code, IoT physical systems, cloud workloads, SaaS applications, social media and more.

Cyber Security Trend: Identify Threat Detection and Response (ITDR)

Cyber Security examples

ITDR is a new term that Gartner introduced in their recent report. It is best described as a collection of tools and best practices to successfully defend identity systems from endemic level of attacks. ITDR tools are highly recommended by Gartner as a security solution to look for in the coming years. This is due it being able to support discovery and inspection, provide analysis capabilities, enable policy evaluation, and provide incident management and remediation suggestions to restore affected systems.

Cyber Security Trend: Digital Supply Chain Risk

Cyber Security Supply Chain

Gartner predicts that by 2025, 45% of organizations worldwide will have experienced attacks on their software supply chains. Businesses should be more wary of these types of attacks in 2023 and the future.

Below are the four main categories that digital supply chain generally falls under:

  • The potential disclosure of sensitive information shared with supply chain partners
  • Compromise of infrastructure shared with supply chain partners such as networks, software, cloud service and managed services providers
  • Attacks through common commercial and open-source software used in business and IT operations
  • The exploitation of security flaws in the digital products sold to customers

Cyber Security Trend: Vendor Consolidation

Vendor Consolidation

Vendors are consolidating security functions into single platforms. This is to reduce the complexity of the growing number of technologies businesses use while creating a more attractive package to businesses. Doing this may introduce new challenges such as reduced negotiating power and potential single points of failure, the reduction in complexity and improved efficiency will lead to a better overall security.

Cyber Security Landscape in 2022

Cyber Security Landscape in 2022
Cyber Security Landscape banner

The past few years have been a rollercoaster of change for the security landscape. The global pandemic caught many companies off guard due to how fast they needed to adapt to a remote work environment. This allowed threat actors to use a variety of attacks, old and new, to exploit vulnerabilities in security during their transition. However, now that we are slowly emerging from the global pandemic and slowly are slowly returning to the office, can we still say the threat landscape is the same or is there a new trend slowly emerging?

Now that we have passed the halfway point of 2022, it would be a good time to reflect and understand the current threat landscape to better prepare for the end of 2022 and the years after. Let’s take a look at the data provided by Trend Micro’s latest cybersecurity report for the midyear of 2022.

MaaS and RaaS on the Rise

Cyber Security Landscape Maas raas

Earlier this year, we saw the rise of malware-as-a-service (MaaS) and ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS). MaaS was propagated through the use of the EMOTET infrastructure that made it easier to distribute. This shows that even if EMOTET was dismantled in 2021, threat actors still use it to deploy other ransomware families to EMOTET-compromised systems.

Cyber Security Landscape emotet
EMOTET Attack Structure

According to Trend Micro data from its Smart Protection Network (SPN) platform, EMOTET detections have soared in the first six months of 2022. The number of detections in 1H 2021 was recorded at 13,811 while in 1H 2022 it has jumped to 148,701.

RaaS on the other hand, has grown due to it’s ease of use. RaaS is available to any would be criminal organization who can either purchase the infrastructure outright or can rent it out. It also does not need any technical knowledge to run a sophisticated attack which makes it even simpler to use. Trend Micro has detected that there are around 57 active RaaS and extortion groups and almost 1,205 victim organizations based on data they have collected throughout the 1H of 2022. They use mostly ransomware such as Lockbit, Conti, and BlackCat which has been detected from Trend’s SPN network.

Cloud Misconfiguration and Cryptocurrency-mining

Cyber Security Landscape cloud

Cloud-based containers have become integral into the digital transformation strategies of many organizations. However, due to its tendency to be misconfigured, it has become a big target for threat actors. According to a survey from Red Hat in May 2022, out of 300 participants who took the survey, 53% of them have answered that they have detected a misconfiguration in their containers and/or Kubernetes deployment. An independent investigation from Trend into Kubernetes clusters has shown that there are over 243,000 exposed clusters via Shodan that can be seen publicly. Some of these nodes, around 600, came back with a “200 – OK” notification, meaning attackers are free to exploit them and install and run malicious programs on the kubelet API.

Another emerging threat to come recently has been threat actors who steal cyptocurrency mining capabilities from their victims’ resources. There have been five prominent threat actor groups that Trend Micro has been able to identify.

  1. Outlaw – Primarily targets internet-of-things (IoT) devices and Linux cloud servers by exploiting known vulnerabilities or performing brute-force Secure Shell Protocol (SSH) attacks.
  2. TeamTNT – One of the most technically proficient threat actors focused on cryptocurrency mining.
  3. Kinsing – Known for quickly abusing new exploits (including the Log4Shell vulnerability) in a short period.
  4. 8220 – Known for exploiting Oracle WebLogic vulnerabilities.
  5. Kek Security – a relatively new group that uses sophisticated techniques and integrates new exploits in its attacks.

Threats are always evolving and adapting to situations within the cyberspace. This is why businesses should always work closely with security vendors to be able to stay up to date with the latest security trends. Consulting with partners like us from CT Link or even security solution vendors like Trend Micro is one way to keep ahead of the new threats that may come in the latter part of 2022 and beyond.

Office 365 Tips for Improving Data Security

Office 365 Tips for Improving Data Security
Microsoft Office 365 Tips for Improving Data Security

Microsoft Office 365 has become one of the most widely used collaboration tools for many businesses around the world. This is due to the familiarity, convenience, and functionality that the platform gives its users. The pandemic made it even more apparent when businesses had to close their offices and remote work was enforced globally. However, cyber criminals are aware of this and are actively looking for ways to exploit user ignorance for their gain.

Below are a few security tips to help you and your company improve your Office 365 security:

Enable Device Protection

Microsoft Office 365 Tips for Improving Data Security protection

Users of Office 365 will agree that one of the best features it has is its mobility. Being able to access your files, collaborate with others, and checking business emails on any device is incredibly convenient. However, this can lead to security risks in the long run if devices are not properly secured.

Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). It helps your organization properly manage and secure your users’ devices, whether or not they are using company devices or using their personal devices (BYOD). One example of its capabilities is preventing emails from being sent to people outside your organization. It also allows your corporate data to be secured even if they are on a personal device, keeping it isolated from personal data.

Microsoft Intune Capabilities

  • Option to be purely cloud or co-managed with configuration manager and Intune.
  • Customize rules for both personal and organization-owned devices when accessing corporate data and networks.
  • Protect your company information by controlling the way users access and share information.
  • Ensure security compliance for all devices and apps

Set up Email Security

Microsoft Office 365 Tips for Improving Data Security email

Attackers usually take the path of least resistance when targeting your network which is usually your users. Phishing attacks have gone up since the pandemic since users are more vulnerable outside your network. Making use of the default Office 365 anti-phishing capabilities can help your company monitor and block known campaigns to lessen the risk of a breach. These functions can be enabled through the Microsoft Defender in the settings window.

If your company would like a complete email security solution for your Office 365 defense, Trend Micro Email Security for Office 365 can help. The Trend Micro solution uses an optimum blend of cross-generational threat techniques, like machine learning, sandbox analysis, data loss prevention (DLP), and other methods to stop all types of email threats.

  • Stops phishing and spam by examining email senders, analyzing email content and malicious URL
  • Protects against BEC by examining email behavior while allowing you to define priority users for BEC protection
  • Detects and blocks advanced threats using machine learning and sandbox analysis

Turn on Multifactor Authentication (MFA)

Enabling the MFA capabilities of Office 365 adds an additional layer of security to avoid data breaches. By verifying each user that requests for access, lessens the chance that any malicious attacker can get into your network. Office 365 MFA can be enabled for individual accounts or through policies for all users. Individual account option makes users go through authentication on their login while policy-based MFA can be customized based on the user’s role or permission levels. The policy-based option is not available on all licenses.

RSA SecurID is another option if you are looking to improve your MFA capabilities for Office 365. With a native Office 365 integration, you can better secure your network with a variety of different authentication methods. The below authentication methods are also available whether or not the user has internet access:

  • Hardware tokens
  • Soft tokens through the mobile app
  • Biometrics through the mobile app
  • Tokens received through Email or SMS

For further security form the RSA solution has machine learning for its authentication solution. However, it is not included in the basic edition.

Improve Visibility and Detection Beyond Endpoints with Trend Micro XDR

Improve Visibility and Detection Beyond Endpoints with Trend Micro XDR

The threat landscape is always evolving, making it hard for traditional security measures to adapt to it. This has become even more prominent ever since the pandemic; threat actors have been taking advantage of the increased attack surfaces that remote work has provided. However, if you are only securing the endpoint side, you only see a part of the malicious activity and would not be able to properly find the source and cause of it.

Another thing that must be put into consideration is that not all companies have a dedicated security team to make sense of all the alerts that an organizations security solution may notify them of. If you have no one to analyze the alert or if your team can’t respond fast enough due to the number of alerts, you leave your network vulnerable to threat actors.

This is where a security solution like Trend Micro’s XDR can help.

Better visibility of threats to your network

Trend Micro XDR has a reference of indicators of compromise (IoC) that is capable of scanning not just endpoints, but also across emails and network servers, giving your IT team more security visibility of your infrastructure.

Investigating across your organization

Trend Micro XDR allows your IT team to find threats that may have bypassed your security before and also allows you to investigate threats that have already been blocked to find their origin.

Extending your security team

With Trend Micro Managed XDR, you are able to outsource experts from Trend Micro to help interpret the security reports and alerts to quickly remediate threats to your network. This is helpful in both situations in which you have a dedicated security team, as it helps free their time to do other tasks, and those who cannot afford to have a dedicated team.

Machine learning and signatures

Machine learning is used to ensure that files you download are safe through sandboxing to ensure no malicious actions are done once it is running. Signatures on the other hand help quickly distinguish known malicious files and immediately blocks them once detected.

Virtual patching

Once an exploit is found, you need to apply the necessary vendor patch to ensure your business-critical server is safe. However, as we know this is usually easier said than done as patching requires your operations to stop. With Trend Micro, you are able to virtually patch your machine to protect you from the exploit while you slowly patch your business-critical servers.

These are just some features of the XDR suite that Trend Micro Offers, if you are interested in learning more on Trend Micro XDR or other security solutions, you may fill out the form below and we will contact you as soon as we can!

Enhance your VPN security with Multifactor Authentication!

Enhance your VPN security with Multifactor Authentication!

Today, traditional username and password is no longer enough to ensure the security of your network. As users are likely to reuse passwords, credentials are vulnerable to leakage, which become additional potential entry points for threat actors.

This is because cyberattacks now indirectly target networks through your users and their devices. In the Philippines where virtual private network (VPN) is widely used to remotely access the corporate network, this becomes a prime target. With only traditional username and password as security in place, it is difficult to verify if the access request is from a legitimate user, and thereby, easily granting unrestricted access to your network.

So what can companies do to mitigate these threats? This is where multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions like RSA SecurID come in.

Confidently authenticate users with RSA SecurID

To achieve a higher level of security for your network, you need an adaptive way to verify user identity before authenticating. By having an MFA solution in place, it minimizes the risks of allowing compromised user accounts into your network, especially with the huge repercussions as VPNs usually provide users a full access. This is done through authentication steps like approving via push notifications, biometrics, and one-time passwords. Access requests are also screened by SecurID’s risk analysis before access is granted.

When using a VPN, companies are unable to get the control and visibility that they need to ensure security of their network if user convenience is in consideration and vice versa. RSA SecurID eliminates this dilemma through the following:

Creating a single platform to access and authenticate when accessing the VPN, which eliminates the need of multiple MFA solutions on an on-app basis while maintaining compatibility for your legacy or modern (whether its on-prem, private, or public) applications.

Providing a high level of identity assurance that gives your security a strong mechanism for confirming users are who they say they are

Giving users a choice over how they authenticate (either through push notifications, biometric or one-time password)

Granting users a way to authenticate quickly and intuitively with real-time responses at no expense of productivity

On top of these, It is easy to deploy and manage. Users only need to download the SecurID app through their preferred app store (IoS, Android, or Windows) while administrators are able to manage all account through a single window.

If your company is looking for ways to improve your access gateway security whether it be for legacy applications, on-premise or cloud apps, SecurID has the capabilities to ensure identity assurance.

Improve your Zero trust Strategy with Pulse Zero Trust Access!

Improve your Zero trust Strategy with Pulse Zero Trust Access!

Digital transformation is changing the business norms. Access and connectivity are becoming more flexible as devices, users, applications, and infrastructure adapt to a new era of hyper-connectivity. This has prompted enterprises to consider how to secure access for their users and applications while managing cybersecurity risks in a network with little to no boundaries. This is where Zero Trust solutions like Pulse Zero Trust Access (PZTA) comes into play.

The PZTA platform enables diverse users from any location to access public, private, and multi-cloud applications as well as data center resources securely while staying user friendly. Be it a hybrid cloud or pure cloud strategy, PZTA can help organizations enhance their security, productivity, and compliance while also improving administrative and user experience.

Below are a few key areas in which PZTA can help improve:

On-premises, SaaS and Hybrid Cloud Applications

PZTA allows you to have Zero Trust Secure access remotely or on-site to your corporate applications whether they are located in your network perimeter or in the cloud (private or public). Users and devices are authenticated continuously while maintaining secure entry points for your network and user device through the use of encryption channels.

Keeping user and application traffic
within the corporate network

Organizations can be confident when users from any location access any application using any device. All user traffic is directed to PZTA which acts as a middleman where user requests are fulfilled by PZTA accessing data from the corporate network on their behalf. Since data are not accessed directly by users, this lowers the area of attack of compromised accounts and devices.

Difficulty of managing
resources in the cloud

The PZTA cloud-based service emulates the same access and management experience as an on-prem solution. This means that you can enable the same level of visibility, compliance, enforcement, and analytics as you would in an on-prem solution.

Visibility, Enforcement and Compliance Reporting

PZTA provides a single pane-of-glass visibility of all users connecting to your network, regardless of the location of the user, application, or resource.

Visibility gaps

From the PZTA dashboard, administrators can get holistic visibility of users, devices, infrastructure, and applications as all access is authenticated and authorized by it. These are also logged in the dashboard for reporting and auditing purposes.

Ensuring user endpoint compliance

PZTA first goes through a set of policies during authentication to see if devices trying to access the corporate network are compliant. Users can then follow pre-defined remediation given set by the administrators so that they may access the network.

Measuring users’ risk factors

User activities are measured and given a “risk score” based on users’ behavioral patterns. Stricter authentication or restrictions can be dynamically applied to verify the user’s identity once there is behavior outside the norm detected. This continuous anomaly and malicious activity detection is used to ensure the network’s security.

These are just a few ways in which Pulse Zero Trust Access can help companies improve their visibility and security. If you would like to learn more about Pulse Secure solutions, you may fill out the form below and we will contact you as soon as we can!
