Preventing and mitigating cyberattacks is a day-to-day — sometimes hour-to-hour — is a massive endeavor for enterprises. New, more advanced techniques are revealed constantly, especially with the rise in ransomware-as-a-service, crime syndicates and cybercrime commoditization. Likewise, statistics are seemingly endless, with a regular churn of new, updated reports and research studies revealing worsening conditions.
According to Fortune Business Insights, the worldwide information security market will reach just around $376 billion in 2029. And, IBM research revealed that the average cost of a data breach is $4.35 million.
The harsh truth is that many organizations are exposed due to common software, hardware or organizational process vulnerabilities — and 93% of all networks are open to breaches, according to another latest report.
Cybersecurity must therefore be a team effort, said Scott Sutherland, senior director at NetSPI, which specializes in enterprise penetration testing and attack-surface management.
The company today announced the release of two new open-source tools for the information security community: PowerHuntShares and PowerHunt. Sutherland is demoing both at Black Hat USA this week.
These new tools are aimed at helping defense, identity and access management (IAM) and security operations center (SOC) teams discover vulnerable network shares and Improve detections, said Sutherland.
They have been developed — and released in an open-source capacity — to “help ensure our penetration testers and the IT community can more effectively identify and remediate excessive share permissions that are being abused by bad actors like ransomware groups,” said Sutherland.
He added, “They can be used as part of a regular quarterly cadence, but the hope is they’ll be a starting point for companies that lacked awareness around these issues before the tools were released.”
The new PowerHuntShares capability inventories, analyzes and reports excessive privilege assigned to server message block (SMB) shares on Microsoft’s Active Directory (AD) domain-joined computers.
SMB allows applications on a computer to read and write to files and to request services from server programs in a computer network.
NetSPI’s new tool helps address risks of excessive share permissions in AD environments that can lead to data exposure, privilege escalation and ransomware attacks within enterprise environments, explained Sutherland.
“PowerHuntShares is focused on identifying shares configured with excessive permissions and providing data insight to understand how they are related to each other, when they were introduced into the environment, who owns them and how exploitable they are,” said Sutherland.
For instance, according to a latest study from cybersecurity company ExtraHop, SMB was the most prevalent protocol exposed in many industries: 34 out of 10,000 devices in financial services; seven out of 10,000 devices in healthcare; and five out of 10,000 devices in state, local and education (SLED).
Meanwhile, PowerHunt is a modular threat-hunting framework that identifies signs of compromise based on artifacts from common MITRE ATT&CK techniques. It also detects anomalies and outliers specific to the target environment.
The new tool can be used to quickly collect artifacts commonly associated with malicious behavior, explained Sutherland. It automates the collection of artifacts at scale using Microsoft PowerShell and by performing initial analysis. It can also output .csv files that are easy to consume. This allows for additional triage and analysis through other tools and processes.
“While [the PowerHunt tool] calls out suspicious artifacts and statistical anomalies, its greatest value is simply producing data that can be used by other tools during threat-hunting exercises,” said Sutherland.
NetSPI offers penetration testing-as-a-service (PTaaS) through its ResolveTM penetration testing and vulnerability management platform. With this, its experts perform deep-dive manual penetration testing across application, network and cloud attack surfaces, said Sutherland. Historically, they test more than one million assets to find 4 million unique vulnerabilities.
The company’s global penetration testing team has also developed several open-source tools, including PowerUpSQL and MicroBurst.
Sutherland underscored the importance of open-source tool development and said that NetSPI actively encourages innovation through collaboration.
Open source offers “the ability to use tools for free to better understand a concept or issue,” he said. And, while most open-source tools may not end up being an enterprise solution, they can bring awareness to specific issues and “encourage exploration of long-term solutions.”
The ability to customize code is another advantage — anyone can get an open-source project and customize it to their needs.
Ultimately, open source offers an “incredibly powerful” ability, said Sutherland. “It’s great to be able to learn from someone else’s code, build off that idea, collaborate with a complete stranger and produce something new that you can share with thousands of people instantly around the world.”
Specifically relating to PowerHuntShares and PowerHunt, he urged the security community to check them out and contribute to them.
“This will allow the community to better understand our SMB share attack surfaces and Improve strategies for remediation — together,” he said.

While most people believe that the first smartphone appeared on the global scene in 2007, when Apple released the original iPhone, that is not so. The first device that fits the modern definition of a smartphone got released in 1992 by IBM. It bared the name Simon Personal Communicator and represented a dramatic advancement in mobile phone technology, a consumer electronics category that became a thing in 1983. Today, there are over 5.3 billion unique mobile phone users around the globe, and this figure is growing at an annual rate of 1.8%. Moreover, dedicated mobile software, better known as apps, has become the cornerstone of smartphone use and an integral part of modern human life.
According to many, the game Snake, build-in the 1997 Nokia 6110 phone was the initial mobile app. Now, twenty-five years later, Google Play is home to almost 2.9 million apps, and the Apple App store has 1.96 million available for download. 49% of smartphone users open their favorite at least eleven times a day, and 70% of all US digital media consumption originates from mobile software. Hence, it would be an understatement to say that this software does not play an integral part in most people’s lives.
Consequently, app development has become a massive industry, causing millions of laypeople to be on the prowl for quality app ideas. In 2018, the mobile app economy had a value of $106 billion, and projections are that this number will increase four-fold by 2026, making iOS and Android app development a big business. Thus, this is an excellent time to look at ten people who became filthy rich via software development for mobile phones. We rattle off their names below.
Crypto exchanges became a thing in 2010 when a trailblazing Web hub showed up that allowed people to buy Bitcoins and democratized the value of one BTC unit. Currently, around three hundred and eighty such platforms live on the internet, and without a doubt, the most famous one is Binance, which has the largest daily trading volume. Chinese computer programmers Changpeng Zhao and Yi He created went live with it in 2017, and as of May 2022, Bloomberg ranks Zhao as the 13th richest person in the world. Going by a projection from this top publication, Zhao boasts a projected net worth of almost $15 billion. Crypto exchanges such as Binance significantly boosted the expansion of several sectors, including mobile gaming, retail, and hospitality.
Shopify is an e-commerce platform that many retail point-of-sale and online businesses utilize. It is the brainchild of Tobias Lütke and Scott Lake, who came up with it after trying to develop an online store that would sell snowboarding equipment. Lütke, a computer programmer by trade, decided that instead of purchasing a pre-made software solution that would handle his business’ online transactions, he would build his own. He did so, and in 2009, Shopify launched an App store and API platform that allowed developers to create apps for Shopify online stores. The net worth of this German-Canadian entrepreneur now stands at $3.7 billion, and he is still the acting CEO of Shopify.
Canadian entrepreneur Garret Camp gets credited for coming up with the idea for the global ride-share phenomenon that is Uber. However, Travis Kalanick mainly gets associated with it, seeing as he co-founded the Uber brand and acted as its CEO from 2010 to 2017. In 2019, Kalanick sold off precisely 90% of his Uber shares and turned a profit of $2.5 billion on his original investment in the software. Before he gained mainstream notoriety for pioneering ride-sharing apps, he was primarily famous as the man behind Red Swoosh, a peer-to-peer file-sharing company.
Instagram is the world’s largest photo-sharing platform. It got founded by Kevin Systrom, a computer programmer, an alma mater of Stanford University, who co-created it along with Mike Krieger, another Stanford alumni. In 2012, Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook, now Meta, bought Instagram, a company with only thirteen employees, for $1 billion. The platform now generates around $20 billion per year to Meta’s annual bottom line. Going by a latest Forbes estimate, Systrom’s net worth is around $2.4 billion.
The earliest dating site, Kiss.com, popped up on the World Wide Web in 1994. Match.com followed a year later, and eHarmony debuted on the relationship internet scene in 2000. Bumble is an online dating app launched in December 2014 that is now super popular and often gets described as a feminist dating platform. Its creator, Whitney Wolfe Herd, was only twenty-five when the services got up and running and have gone down in history as the youngest person to take a company public, at the age of thirty-one.

Grubhub is a food ordering and delivery platform based in Chicago. It got established in 2004 by Mike Evans and Matt Maloney but did not rise to mainstream prominence until the early 2010s when the company started accumulating annual revenues of over $100 million. In October of 2021, Maloney stepped down from the board of Just Eat Takeaway, an Amsterdam-based conglomerate that bought Grubhub, in June 2021, with a net worth of $150 million.
Nick D’Aloisio is a British internet entrepreneur and mobile developer responsible for the mobile app Summly, a news summarizer that Yahoo bought for $30 million. More recently, he founded Sphere, a tech startup that Twitter acquired in late 2021 for an undisclosed amount. D’Alosio’s software development portfolio also includes a famous iOS app named Trimit that condensed text.
Chad Mureta is a blockchain gaming investor, app mogul, and bestselling author. Mureta has a diverse professional career that started in the real estate industry. Over the years, he re-oriented to the app sector and has managed to build and sell eight companies in the last decade and change. Mureta has also led the creation and monetization of over one hundred and fifteen apps, including the first Emoji iPhone application.
Kipp is a mobile advertising network renowned in the Android gaming sector. It is a rewards platform through which gamers attain real-world prizes from in-game accomplishments. In 2010, at the age of twenty, its founder, Brian Wong, became one of the youngest CEOs to get venture capital funding. A year later, in 2011, he made it onto Forbes 30 Under 30 Social/Mobile rankings.
Robert Nay is a name that often emerges on lists depicting – Which Entrepreneurs Have Made the Most Money from Their App Idea at a Young Age? When he was only fifteen, Robert programmed Bubble Ball, a physics puzzle mobile game that gathered two million downloads in two weeks (2010) on the Apple App Store. Bubble Ball got substantially promoted by active users of social media platforms through the magic of social networking. In 2012, a Community Levels mode got added, boosting the app’s appeal by allowing users to create new levels via a web interface.
For the twelfth year in a row, healthcare saw the costliest breaches among all industries with the average cost reaching $10.1 million per breach.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — IBM (NYSE: IBM) Security released the annual Cost of a Data Breach Report, revealing costlier and higher-impact data breaches than ever before, with the global average cost of a data breach reaching an all-time high of $4.35 million for studied organizations. With breach costs increasing nearly 13% over the last two years of the report, the findings suggest these incidents may also be contributing to rising costs of goods and services. In fact, 60% of studied organizations raised their product or services prices due to the breach, when the cost of goods is already soaring worldwide amid inflation and supply chain issues.
The perpetuality of cyberattacks is also shedding light on the “haunting effect” data breaches are having on businesses, with the IBM report finding 83% of studied organizations have experienced more than one data breach in their lifetime. Another factor rising over time is the after-effects of breaches on these organizations, which linger long after they occur, as nearly 50% of breach costs are incurred more than a year after the breach.
The 2022 Cost of a Data Breach Report is based on in-depth analysis of real-world data breaches experienced by 550 organizations globally between March 2021 and March 2022. The research, which was sponsored and analyzed by IBM Security, was conducted by the Ponemon Institute.
Some of the key findings in the 2022 IBM report include:
“Businesses need to put their security defenses on the offense and beat attackers to the punch. It’s time to stop the adversary from achieving their objectives and start to minimize the impact of attacks. The more businesses try to perfect their perimeter instead of investing in detection and response, the more breaches can fuel cost of living increases.” said Charles Henderson, Global Head of IBM Security X-Force. “This report shows that the right strategies coupled with the right technologies can help make all the difference when businesses are attacked.”
Concerns over critical infrastructure targeting appear to be increasing globally over the past year, with many governments’ cybersecurity agencies urging vigilance against disruptive attacks. In fact, IBM’s report reveals that ransomware and destructive attacks represented 28% of breaches amongst critical infrastructure organizations studied, highlighting how threat actors are seeking to fracture the global supply chains that rely on these organizations. This includes financial services, industrial, transportation and healthcare companies amongst others.
Despite the call for caution, and a year after the Biden Administration issued a cybersecurity executive order that centers around the importance of adopting a zero trust approach to strengthen the nation’s cybersecurity, only 21% of critical infrastructure organizations studied adopt a zero trust security model, according to the report. Add to that, 17% of breaches at critical infrastructure organizations were caused due to a business partner being initially compromised, highlighting the security risks that over-trusting environments pose.
According to the 2022 IBM report, businesses that paid threat actors’ ransom demands saw $610,000 less in average breach costs compared to those that chose not to pay – not including the ransom amount paid. However, when accounting for the average ransom payment, which according to Sophos reached $812,000 in 2021, businesses that opt to pay the ransom could net higher total costs – all while inadvertently funding future ransomware attacks with capital that could be allocated to remediation and recovery efforts and looking at potential federal offenses.
The persistence of ransomware, despite significant global efforts to impede it, is fueled by the industrialization of cybercrime. IBM Security X-Force discovered the duration of studied enterprise ransomware attacks shows a drop of 94% over the past three years – from over two months to just under four days. These exponentially shorter attack lifecycles can prompt higher impact attacks, as cybersecurity incident responders are left with very short windows of opportunity to detect and contain attacks. With “time to ransom” dropping to a matter of hours, it’s essential that businesses prioritize rigorous testing of incident response (IR) playbooks ahead of time. But the report states that as many as 37% of organizations studied that have incident response plans don’t test them regularly.
The report also showcased hybrid cloud environments as the most prevalent (45%) infrastructure amongst organizations studied. Averaging $3.8 million in breach costs, businesses that adopted a hybrid cloud model observed lower breach costs compared to businesses with a solely public or private cloud model, which experienced $5.02 million and $4.24 million on average respectively. In fact, hybrid cloud adopters studied were able to identify and contain data breaches 15 days faster on average than the global average of 277 days for participants.
The report highlights that 45% of studied breaches occurred in the cloud, emphasizing the importance of cloud security. However, a significant 43% of reporting organizations stated they are just in the early stages or have not started implementing security practices to protect their cloud environments, observing higher breach costs2. Businesses studied that did not implement security practices across their cloud environments required an average 108 more days to identify and contain a data breach than those consistently applying security practices across all their domains.

Prescriptive analytics is similar to predictive analytics. Predictive modeling is the most technical aspect of predictive analytics. Data analysts perform modeling with statistics and other historical data. The model then estimates the likelihood of different outcomes. In e-commerce, predictive modeling tools help analyze customer data. It can predict how many people are likely to buy a certain product. It can also predict the return on investment (ROI) of targeted marketing campaigns. Some software-as-a-service (SaaS) may collect data directly from online stores, such as Amazon Marketplace.
Predictive analytics tools may benefit social media marketing by guiding users to plan the type of content to post; these tools also recommend the best time and day to post. Manufacturing industries need predictive analytics to manage inventory, supply chains, and staff hiring processes. Transport planning and execution are performed more efficiently with predictive analytics tools. For instance, SAP is a leading multinational software company. Its Predictive Analytics was one of the leading data analytics platforms across the world. Now, the software is gradually being integrated into SAP's larger Cloud Analytics platform, which does more business intelligence (BI) than SAP Predictive Analytics. SAP Analytics Cloud, which works on all devices, utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to Improve business planning and forecasting. This analytics platform can be easily extended to businesses of all sizes.
North America is one of the most vital regions for the uptake and growth of new technologies due to favorable government policies that boost innovation, the presence of a substantial industrial base, and high purchasing power, especially in developed countries such as the US and Canada. The industrial sector in the US is a prominent market for security analytics. The country consists of a large number of predictive analytics platform developers.

Phishing incidents are on the rise. A report from IBM shows that phishing was the most popular attack vector in 2021, resulting in one in five employees falling victim to phishing hacking techniques.
Although technical solutions protect against phishing threats, no solution is 100% effective. Consequently, companies have no choice but to involve their employees in the fight against hackers. This is where security awareness training comes into play.
Security awareness training gives companies the confidence that their employees will execute the right response when they discover a phishing message in their inbox.
As the saying goes, "knowledge is power," but the effectiveness of knowledge depends heavily on how it is delivered. When it comes to phishing attacks, simulations are among the most effective forms of training because the events in training simulations directly mimic how an employee would react in the event of an actual attack. Since employees do not know whether a suspicious email in their inbox is a simulation or a real threat, the training becomes even more valuable.
It is critical to plan, implement and evaluate a cyber awareness training program to ensure it truly changes employee behavior. However, for this effort to be successful, it should involve much more than just emailing employees. Key practices to consider include:
Because employees do not recognize the difference between phishing simulations and real cyberattacks, it's important to remember that phishing simulations evoke different emotions and reactions, so awareness training should be conducted thoughtfully. As organizations need to engage their employees to combat the ever-increasing attacks and protect their assets, it is important to keep morale high and create a positive culture of cyber hygiene.
Based on years of experience, cybersecurity firm CybeReady has seen companies fall into these common mistakes.
The approach of running a phishing simulation as a test to catch and punish "repeat offenders" can do more harm than good.
An educational experience that involves stress is counterproductive and even traumatic. As a result, employees will not go through the training but look for ways to circumvent the system. Overall, the fear-based "audit approach" is not beneficial to the organization in the long run because it cannot provide the necessary training over an extended period.
Solution #1: Be sensitive
Because maintaining positive employee morale is critical to the organization's well-being, provide positive just-in-time training.
Just-in-time training means that once employees have clicked on a link within the simulated attack, they are directed to a short and concise training session. The idea is to quickly educate the employee on their mistake and provide them essential tips on spotting malicious emails in the future.
This is also an opportunity for positive reinforcement, so be sure to keep the training short, concise, and positive.
Solution #2: Inform relevant departments.
Communicate with relevant stakeholders to ensure they are aware of ongoing phishing simulation training. Many organizations forget to inform relevant stakeholders, such as HR or other employees, that the simulations are being conducted. Learning has the best effect when participants have the opportunity to feel supported, make mistakes, and correct them.
It is important to vary the simulations. Sending the same simulation to all employees, especially at the same time, is not only not instructive but also has no valid metrics when it comes to organizational risk.
The "warning effect" - the first employee to discover or fall for the simulation warns the others. This prepares your employees to respond to the "threat" by anticipating the simulation, thus bypassing the simulation and the training opportunity.
Another negative impact is social desirability bias, which causes employees to over-report incidents to IT without noticing them in order to be viewed more favorably. This leads to an overloaded system and the department IT.
This form of simulation also leads to inaccurate results, such as unrealistically low click-through rates and over-reporting rates. Thus, the metrics do not show the real risks of the company or the problems that need to be addressed.
Solution: Drip mode
Drip mode allows sending multiple simulations to different employees at different times. Certain software solutions can even do this automatically by sending a variety of simulations to different groups of employees. It's also important to implement a continuous cycle to ensure that all new employees are properly onboarded and to reinforce that security is important 24/7 - not just checking a box for minimum compliance.
With over 3.4 billion phishing attacks per day, it's safe to assume that at least a million of them differ in complexity, language, approach, or even tactics.
Unfortunately, no single phishing simulation can accurately reflect an organization's risk. Relying on a single phishing simulation result is unlikely to provide reliable results or comprehensive training.
Another important consideration is that different groups of employees respond differently to threats, not only because of their vigilance, training, position, tenure, or even education level but because the response to phishing attacks is also contextual.
Solution: Implement a variety of training programs
Behavior change is an evolutionary process and should therefore be measured over time. Each training session contributes to the progress of the training. Training effectiveness, or in other words, an accurate reflection of actual organizational behavior change, can be determined after multiple training sessions and over time.
The most effective solution is to continuously conduct various training programs (at least once a month) with multiple simulations.
It is highly recommended to train employees according to their risk level. A diverse and comprehensive simulation program also provides reliable measurement data based on systematic behavior over time. To validate their efforts at effective training, organizations should be able to obtain a valid indication of their risk at any given point in time while monitoring progress in risk reduction.
Creating such a program may seem overwhelming and time-consuming. That's why we have created a playbook of the 10 key practices you can use to create a simple and effective phishing simulation.

It’s near quadratic equality with just minor changes in the 2022 Gartner Backup and Recovery Magic Quadrant. The only new entrant is HYCU, hustling in for the first time as a Visionary.
Enterprise backup and recovery software systems are, according to Gartner’s definition, “designed to capture a point-in-time copy (backup) of enterprise workloads in on-premises, hybrid, multicloud and SaaS environments and write the data to a secondary storage target for the purpose of recovering this data in case of loss.”
Commvault leads the rankings, closely followed by Veeam and Rubrik with Veritas in hot pursuit, followed by Cohesity also in close pursuit, and then Dell a little way behind. We note that Rubrik has been ranked as having the most Completeness of Vision and Veeam has the highest Ability to Execute, while Commvault has the strongest balance between these two measures.
This is a remarkably stable MQ in some ways. For example, Veritas says this marks its 17th time being named a Leader and Commvault has been named a Leader for the 11th consecutive year. Veeam has been positioned as a Leader for the 6th consecutive year.
If we compare the latest MQ with the year-ago quadrant we can see that very little has changed – apart from HYCU’s entrance. Oh, and both Challenger IBM and Visionary Druva have moved some way closer to the Leaders’ quadrant.
The main event is HYCU’s arrival on the MQ scene. A HYCU spokesperson told us: “Everyone here is pretty excited. As a first-time entrant we are a Visionary. … And, as Gartner noted in our strengths, it’s in large part due to our ease of use, multicloud and hybrid cloud support and deep Nutanix integration.”
Scanning through the MQ authors’ comments about the vendors we found interesting snippets.
Acronis – “During the evaluation period … opened 12 new datacenter locations. … Acronis offers a strong and differentiated data protection solution for remote sites/edge locations and endpoints localized in more than 25 languages.”
Arcserve – “During the evaluation period, Arcserve merged with StorageCraft, launched new N Series Appliances based on Nutanix, expanded UDP appliance capacity to 1PB, released new Arcserve SaaS Backup via OEM agreement with Keepit, and released UDP 8.1, which includes support for Oracle Standard Edition and multifactor authentication.”
Unitrends – “In the last 12 months, Unitrends released ten software updates from version 10.5.3 through 10.6.2.”
Veeam – “In the last 12 months, it released 30 product updates as well as plug-ins for eight OEM partners.”
Vendors updated and extended their products at vigorous rates and still their MQ position didn’t change. The general rate of development is so high that it didn’t count much at all. What do you have to do to Improve your position in this MQ – to really move the needle around the dial?
Download the full report here. This provides Gartner’s comments on the strengths of, and challenges faced by, each supplier in the MQ.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a 2-axis chart with Ability to Execute being the vertical axis and Completeness of Vision the horizontal one. There are four subsidiary quadrants or squares: Challengers and Leaders in the top half of the chart and Niche Players and Visionaries in the bottom. The balance between execution and vision is provided by closeness to a non-shown bottom left to top right diagonal line.
