Bank and Credit Union Cyber Security

AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) enables banks and credit unions to accelerate threat detection and compliance with an all-in-one platform of essential security capabilities and seamlessly integrated threat intelligence to detect the latest threats.

Detect, Prioritize, and Respond to Threats Targeting Your Critical Systems Faster and More Effectively

Improving the cyber security of banks and credit unions continues to challenge many IT organizations. Regional banks and credit unions in particular often lack the resources to keep up with the increased sophistication of the threats targeting their networks.

These smaller financial services organizations don’t have the budget to hire dedicated security practitioners or invest in the diverse security controls needed to detect and respond to threats quickly.

They also lack the ability to respond quickly to changes in the regulatory environment, such as the FFIEC (Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council) Cyber Assessment Tool that measures cybersecurity preparedness.

The AlienVault USM platform enables bank and credit union IT teams with limited resources to improve their bank network security on day one.

In as little as one hour, you will be identifying the most important threats targeting your network and using integrated threat intelligence to help you respond quickly and effectively.

AlienVault USM delivers the banking cyber security you need in three key areas:

Cyber Threat Detection

  • Five essential, built-in security capabilities all centrally managed
  • Automatically detect new assets and vulnerable systems before attackers can target them
  • Continuous monitoring of your network, users, and assets identifies suspicious and malicious activity quickly

Threat Prioritization

  • Correlates and analyzes security events from built-in data sources and legacy tools
  • At-a-glance view of highest priority threats
  • Focus on those critical assets to minimize the risk of system compromise and data exfiltration

Integrated Threat Intelligence

  • Continuous updates to built-in security controls
  • Pre-configured correlation directives eliminates the need to create your own
  • Eliminates the need for dedicated security analysts to research threats

Cyber Threat Detection

AlienVault’s USM platform provides a unified approach to threat detection and compliance management that puts complete bank IT security visibility at your fingertips. The USM platform is an all-in-one security management platform that includes five essential security capabilities all centrally managed through a single interface:

  • Asset Discovery
  • Vulnerability Assessment
  • Intrusion Detection
  • Behavioral Monitoring
  • SIEM (Security Information and Event Management)

These built-in capabilities enable you to quickly answer critical questions about your bank network security, such as what devices are on your network, which assets are vulnerable to attack, and which of these devices are communicating with known malicious IP addresses. AlienVault USM will automatically alert you when there is malicious activity in your network and when your users are violating policies.

Threat Prioritization to Focus Scarce Resources and Rapid Response

AlienVault USM is the platform you need for complete visibility of your assets, vulnerabilities, and threats. We know the challenge bank IT cyber security teams face when trying to detect threats by manually collecting and correlating security events from individual security point-products. With those products generating hundreds or thousands of security events every minute, it’s almost impossible to find the few events that indicate system compromise.

AlienVault USM does the heavy lifting for you—it correlates and analyzes the events from its built-in data sources (as well as events from legacy systems) and identifies the most important threats. The Cyber Kill Chain Taxonomy provides an at-a-glance view of threat activity in your network and eliminates the need for you to investigate every alert. Armed with this information, your bank IT security team can focus on those critical assets to minimize the risk of system compromise and data exfiltration.

Comprehensive Compliance Capabilities

Higher education institutions also need to meet a number of regulatory compliance guidelines, including FERPA, HIPAA, PCI, GLBA and SOX. FERPA compliance is one of the most critical, as it pertains to the privacy of student records. There are a number of elements to FERPA compliance, but a frequently misunderstood area concerns the log requirements. FERPA requires institutions maintain logs of who has authorized access to student records, and mandates requirements around user access to those records. Therefore, as a higher education institution, you need to ensure you have the technologies and procedures in place to provide this log maintenance and access control.

AlienVault USM delivers key capabilities to help you achieve FERPA compliance. USM features a logger as one of its main architectural components which stores log files and other data for extended periods of time. The USM platform also has the ability to digitally sign the logs at the line level, ensuring that the logs you have stored have not been modified since their creation. In addition, USM allows for data integration from legacy security tools to ensure you can meet additional compliance requirements.

USM also offers hundreds of built-in compliance reports for managing your HIPAA, PCI, GLBA, or SOX programs. These reports are automatically updated as asset and vulnerability assessment data changes, and you can quickly customize them based on your own compliance priorities.

Complete Visibility Into Your Network

Attackers are increasingly targeting the electric grid and other energy sector organizations with new attack methods. These state and non-state actors are often looking for data on electrical grid configurations, or looking to steal user authentication credentials, schematics, or other data about the utility networks. These attackers want to disrupt these operations, steal data, and generally cause damage.

It is difficult for the typical energy sector organization to monitor and defend against these threats, and at the same time ensure the uptime and reliability of services. When managing energy sector security, you are likely dealing with interconnected networks, where one breach can lead to cascading disaster. You need complete visibility into your infrastructure to ensure effective threat detection and response.

AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) is the ideal solution to deliver energy sector cyber security needs.USM enables you to monitor your network, detect malicious activity, prioritize risk, and respond to threats on day one. USM delivers asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection, behavioral monitoring, and security information and event management (SIEM), all in a single application. By building in the essential security capabilities, AlienVault USM significantly reduces complexity and deployment time so that you can go from installation to first insight in about an hour.

Comprehensive Risk Management and Compliance Capabilities

There are many regulatory mandates for energy sector organizations, ranging from risk management frameworks to specific compliance standards. For example, the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) has a risk management framework for organizations across the energy spectrum, with sector-specific plans for each energy sector. In particular, the electricity sector has the Risk Management Process (RMP) Guideline.

Specific to energy utilities, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP) standards are specific guidelines to the power industry to ensure reliability and security standards for bulk electric system (BES). Version 5 of the NERC CIP standards has moved this compliance requirement to the front burner for many utility organizations, as virtually all BES facilities are now in scope with at least one of the requirements of NERC CIP.

AlienVault USM delivers critical security capabilities to help you meet standard risk management frameworks. The risk management cycle as defined in the RMP guideline is a comprehensive process that requires organizations to (i) frame risk, (ii) assess risk (including threats and vulnerabilities), (iii) respond to risk once determined, and (iv) monitor risk on an ongoing basis. USM delivers the essential security capabilities to assess and respond to these risks.

AlienVault USM can also help energy utility organizations achieve NERC CIP compliance. USM’s unified approach means you can rely on the built-in security technologies and integrated threat intelligence to help you assess your BES and the impact on each system. USM also offers built-in compliance reports for managing your NERC CIP programs.

There is no way to prevent a dedicated, patient attacker from breaching your network. Relying on preventive tools that sit at the network edge is not enough—you need cyber security threat detection inside your network as well.

AlienVault’s USM platform puts built-in, essential security controls and seamlessly integrated threat intelligence, powered by AlienVault Labs, into the hands of government IT teams with limited resources. You can now deploy a single platform that accelerates threat detection and response by showing the most important threats and how to mitigate them, on day one.

AlienVault USM utilizes a Kill Chain Taxonomy, which makes threat detection and prioritization easy. Our Kill Chain Taxonomy allows you to focus your attention on the most important threats by classifying attacks into five categories. It tells your IT team what are the most important threats facing your network right now.

Increase Situational Awareness with Integrated Threat Intelligence

Government agencies with limited IT staff often lack time to research new threats, or access to threat intelligence. This prevents them from being able to keep up with the constantly evolving threat landscape and answer critical questions about threats targeting their network, such as “who, what, why, and how”.

We understand that you lack the budget to hire dedicated security analysts to research data from your point-product security tools. The AlienVault Labs team acts like an extension of your IT team by conducting threat research and publishing weekly updates to the USM correlation rules that sift through the mountains of data in your log files to alert you of critical indicators of compromise.

Reduce Costs, Reduce Complexity

AlienVault USM’s unified approach puts all the security controls you need at your fingertips. Its flexible, open architecture also lets you integrate and correlate events from existing security products into its correlation engine for analysis. This single view accelerates and simplifies your ability to detect and respond to threats while also protecting your investment in legacy security tools.

Eliminating the manual monitoring of security point-products enables you to redeploy personnel to more productive tasks like responding to threats. AlienVault USM lets you make better use of scarce human resources by freeing them from the burden of managing separate security products to execute your cybersecurity strategy.

Improve Regulatory and Policy Compliance

Government agencies must meet a wide array of standards for information security controls and risk management, including DIACAP / DIARMF, DISA STIGs, CNSS 1253, NIST, PCI and more. Your IT team doesn’t have the time or resources to manually manage the network, monitor its security, and measure and report on cyber security policy compliance. USM automates and simplifies these manual processes, putting time back in your team’s day.

AlienVault USM continually monitors and evaluates your security controls, identifies and reports on important audit events, and alerts you to events that require immediate action. You can customize its flexible executive dashboard and reporting engine to demonstrate compliance with the specific standards required for your agency, and built-in reports are provided for many common compliance requirements.

Healthcare Security and Compliance:

AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) Closes the Gaps in Your Healthcare Security.

Healthcare providers and insurers are faced with a range of challenges when it comes to healthcare data security. Complex regulations such as the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (i.e. HIPAA Privacy Rule) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, combined with under-resourced IT teams relying on legacy systems and manual processes, can make compliance with these healthcare information security regulations a seemingly endless struggle.

In addition, because the threat landscape is constantly evolving, healthcare IT security teams must keep up with the latest changes to know of any threats targeting their users, applications, or devices that can ultimately lead to ePHI loss.

Unfortunately, many healthcare organizations assume incorrectly that they are too small to be targeted. However, the range of organizations that fell victim to security breaches in healthcare in the last year demonstrates that organizations of any size are targets.

The threats to healthcare data security are not just external--Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Incident Report describes healthcare as one of the most affected industries by insider and privilege misuse.

AlienVault’s unified approach provides a unique way to address the challenges of healthcare security and compliance. It helps IT teams with limited resources tackle the lack of security controls, manual monitoring process, and lack of threat intelligence.

AlienVault USM delivers the essential capabilities you need to reduce the cost and frustration of meeting regulatory requirements like HIPAA in the US and Data Protection Directive in the EU.

Essential Security Controls

  • Built-in security controls eliminate the need for additional staff to deploy, configure, and maintain separate security controls
  • Single console for configuring and managing all security controls

Continuous Monitoring & Analytics

  • Correlates and analyzes security events automatically
  • Eliminates manual monitoring and analysis

Built-In Threat Intelligence & Response Guidance

  • Continuous threat research and updates to security controls
  • Response guidance included in every alarm to improve incident response process

Essential Security Controls

The first step for organizations to gain better visibility of their network activity is to deploy additional security controls. There is no single technology that will improve healthcare information security.

Instead, it is a range of technologies deployed on the network and on specific devices that will provide the detailed insight into malicious activity and help achieve regulatory compliance. Unfortunately, IT teams often lack the budget or staff to deploy, configure, and maintain the diverse controls they need, leaving sizeable gaps in their security strategy.

AlienVault’s focus on ease of use and deployment makes it the perfect fit for those healthcare organizations with limited budget and few in-house resources.

AlienVault USM builds in five essential security technologies into the USM platform, all configured and managed from a single console:

  • Asset Discovery
  • Vulnerability Assessment
  • Intrusion Detection
  • Behavioral Monitoring
  • SIEM (Security Information and Event Management)

Continuous Monitoring and Analytics

Effectively monitoring network activity to detect malicious content and behavior is another essential aspect of healthcare data security, yet many organizations lack the resources to monitor their network and analyze the results.

One obstacle is simply the enormous volume of diverse event data generated in real-time by devices and applications across the network. Manual analysis of the gigabytes of log data for Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) is virtually impossible, yet many healthcare IT teams have no other means with which to try to link events from across the network.

Logs include critical information such as user behavior, data access, system performance, as well as evidence of system compromise and data exfiltration. However, logs vary from system to system or even from version to version on the same system. They are difficult to interpret and are static, fixed points in time, without the full context or sequence of related events.

The AlienVault USM platform solves these problems with its automatic, continuous monitoring and analysis. Its powerful correlation engine is able to link seemingly unrelated events from across your network and tell you what are the most significant threats in your network right now.

The USM platform contains thousands of pre-built correlation directives that continuously analyze event data to identify potential security threats in your network. USM automatically detects and links behavior patterns found in disparate yet related events generated across different types of assets, putting the critical information you need at your fingertips.

Streamlining Retail Cyber Security

AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) Helps Retailers Detect Cyber Attacks Before Damaged Caused by a Breach

Data breaches continue to occur in the retail industry, in spite of the focus on retail cyber security in recent years. Even with specific data privacy requirements like PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) and greater awareness of the need for information security, retailers continue to be targeted.

Retailers face several challenges when attempting to improve their retail cyber security. One of the most significant is the lack of budget to deploy diverse security controls. Smaller retailers usually have the bare minimum: firewalls and anti-virus technologies. These preventative technologies provide limited ability to detect malicious activity within their network.

For retailers, more detection capability is necessary. They need access to more diverse, detection-based security controls to give them broader visibility of malicious activity in their network.

A second challenge is that smaller retailers often also incorrectly assume that because they are not a national or international chain, they are too small to be targeted for attack. Unfortunately, the exact opposite is true—because they are smaller and therefore less likely to have deployed advanced breach detection tools and have large IT teams to monitor those tools, they are actually an easy target. They lack access to enterprise-class technologies like threat intelligence to improve their ability to detect sophisticated cyber attacks.

A third challenge that many retailers face is the misperception that compliance with a standard like PCI DSS means that their networks are secure. Unfortunately, many of the retail networks that suffered data breaches in the last few years have been compliant with industry guidelines or passed audits. Retail IT teams need to monitor their network continuously to detect suspicious or malicious activity before a breach can occur.

AlienVault USM delivers the essential capabilities you need to help you overcome the challenges of retail cyber security. The USM platform is purpose-built to help IT teams with limited resources detect, prioritize, and respond to threats targeting your retail network.

  • Single console provides network-wide visibility and configuration of all security controls
  • Eliminates hiring additional staff to deploy, configure, and maintain separate security controls

Acts Like an Extension of Your IT team with Threat Intelligence & Response Guidance

  • Continuous threat research and updates to security controls
  • Response guidance included in every alarm to improve your team’s incident response process

Delivers Continuous Monitoring & Analytics

  • Correlates and analyzes security events from across your network automatically
  • Eliminates manual monitoring and analysis, which can cause you to miss sophisticated threats

Unifies Essential, Built-in Security Controls

You can’t rely on just firewalls and anti-virus to provide needed visibility into your network activity. You need to deploy a range of security controls to detect cyber attacks, because there is no single technology that can detect all of the threats targeting your retail network.

We designed the USM platform to give you detailed insight into malicious activity across your network without breaking your budget. It unifies diverse security controls deployed in the network and on specific systems.

This unified approach overcomes the challenge of lack of resources to deploy, configure, and maintain the diverse controls you need. AlienVault’s focus on ease of use and deployment makes it the perfect fit for IT teams to deploy retail cyber security threat detection capabilities.

AlienVault USM builds in five essential security technologies into the USM platform, all configured and managed from a single console:

  • Asset Discovery
  • Vulnerability Assessment
  • Intrusion Detection
  • Behavioral Monitoring
  • SIEM (Security Information and Event Management)

Delivers Continuous Monitoring & Analytics

Many retail organizations lack the resources or understanding of the need to regularly monitor their network and analyze the results. Yet, because of the highly valuable data within your network, you need to continuously monitor your network activity to detect malicious content and behavior.

The enormous volume of security event data generated in real-time by devices and applications across the network can quickly overwhelm any IT organization. Manual analysis of the gigabytes or terabytes of log data for Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) is virtually impossible, yet many retail data security teams have no way to try to link events from across their network.

The AlienVault USM platform solves this problem with its automatic, continuous monitoring and analysis. Its powerful correlation engine links seemingly unrelated events from across your retail network and alerts you to what the most significant threats are in your retail network, right now.

The USM platform contains thousands of pre-built correlation directives that continuously analyze event data to identify potential security threats in your network. USM automatically detects and links behavior patterns found in disparate yet related events generated across different types of assets, putting the critical information you need at your fingertips.
