Preparing for FS-ISAC Annual Summit: Financial Threat Actors are on the Rise


As the threat landscape continues to evolve, threat actors continue to target large corporations across all industries. However, in recent years there has been a clear progression of targeted attacks toward financial institutions.

These attacks continue to become increasingly sophisticated, making it difficult for security teams to protect, detect and respond. Earlier this year, FireEye published their threat trends report, “M-Trends 2017: A View From the Front Lines,” their annual report based on the previous year’s breaches and cyber attacks. Through their research and analysis, they observed that although many nation-states have advanced levels of protection against cyber attacks, many financial threat actors have matched their level of sophistication, adapting their tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), as shown below.


There’s no shortage of data that security teams can use to defend against these threats –between the data from their various security logs and multiple threat feeds they subscribe to.  The reality is that they are becoming overwhelmed with the volume and velocity of alerts and threat data entering their infrastructure, becoming desensitized to important threat information. To reduce the noise and counter this common “alert fatigue,” security organizations are pushed to rely on tools to automate processes in order to increase security effectiveness.

ThreatQ, our Threat Intelligence Platform, is designed so that security teams can get the most from their existing resources – both people and infrastructure.   With new advancements and capabilities, ThreatQ 3.0 is designed to increase confidence and decision-making in your security organization.


If your company is considering a transition towards using more threat intelligence and focusing on threat operations, we can help.  Come visit our team of experts at the FS-ISAC Annual Summit next week.  Set up a 1-on-1 meeting in our Whisper Suite to see a full ThreatQ demo, packed with product advancements including:
