Workforce Cyber ​​Intelligence & Security News Digest – October 2021

Cybersecurity Awareness Month in retrospect, but security still front and center

This week marks the end of Cybersecurity Awareness Month. And although Recognition and Awareness Month is over, security is still a top priority for business and technology leaders given today’s complicated landscape. Cybersecurity really should be a 24/7/365 recon area.

With the end of the month, we thought it was the perfect time to start a monthly cybersecurity news roundup to share with you all, highlighting recently released DTEX information and news, as well as top headlines cybersecurity noteworthy for the month.

Hopefully your Cybersecurity Awareness Month hasn’t been too spooky, and it can serve as a post-Halloween treat as we kick off November.

DTEX in the news

The DTEX team was pleased to share just recently our expanded Investigations and Research division – DTEX Insider Intelligence and Investigations (DTEX I3)! The team focuses on conducting insider threat behavioral studies, intelligence packages and forensic investigations.

We reconnected with CSO Online’s Christopher Burgess to discuss how misinformation creates insider threats. Our own Armaan Mahbod was quoted in the article, offering ideas on how to tackle and combat misinformation.

In addition to highlighting the news of DTEX I3, Net Security Help also shared a bit about Splunk’s series of innovative new products designed to help organizations safely embrace digital transformation. As part of this, Splunk’s partnership with DTEX was mentioned for the work we do together to combat insider threats. MarTech Series also covered this news from Splunk.

CSO’s Christopher Burgess sat down with our team to explain why device identity is an overlooked insider threat. Our Chief Customer Officer, Rajan Koo, highlighted the need for more applications of the Insider Threat Framework to devices at the same level as it is applied to humans. This interview was broadcast on ARN, Reseller News and Channel Asia.

Additionally, Security Boulevard syndicated a number of DTEX blogs throughout the month, including:

Top Cybersecurity Headlines in October

At the end of October, Microsoft published its latest research on the APT behind the SolarWinds attack, which affected more than 140 companies. Robert McMillan and Dustin Volz report on the research in The Wall Street Journal.

Danny Palmer reported on a previously unknown cyber espionage campaign using never-before-seen malware.

Dan Lohrmann has compiled a list of hard-hitting data breach statistics. For example, “misses cost more than $1 million more on average when remote work was listed as a factor in the occurrence, compared to those in this group without this factor ($4.96 vs. $.89 million).

It’s the end of October and a roundup of top DTEX and industry news for the month. See you next month!
