• The Top 5 Sites to Stay Informed about Cyber Security Threats

    Posted on 25/09/2018 by | 0 comments

    As an information security professional, we know that you’re usually the one that your colleagues, managers, or shareholders rely on to have an up-to-date understanding of the current threats out there, and advice for how to avoid them.

    This blog post aims to list the top 5 sites which help you do this.

    What are the top 5 sites to stay informed about cyber security threats?

    1. https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alertsThe United States

    US Cert

    Figure 1: Screenshot from US-CERT

    The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team publishes a list of current cyber attacks and potential threats.

    Positives:

    The alerts are available in RSS format, meaning you can be kept up-to-date with these threats via your RSS Feed Reader on your phone.

    Negatives:

    The downside is that these update are few and far between. The most recent alert is from June 20, 2018 (correct at time of writing), which is already months ago!

    2. https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/threats

    The National Cyber Security Center (a part of the UK’s GCHQ) is essentially the UK’s version of US CERT. It issues alert notices regarding cyber attacks detected in the UK. Despite being a UK site, many of these attacks will also have global relevance.

    Positives:

    The alerts are available via Twitter.

    Negatives:

    As with US-CERT, the frequency of updates is poor. The most recent update was the 25th of July 2018 (correct at time of writing), several months ago.

    3. http://www.digitalattackmap.com/

    The Digital Attack Map provides a real time map of DDoS attacks showing where the attacks are taking place and the country of origin of those attacks.

    Positives:

    If you are a visual person, this map is for you. It provides a great visual representation of DDoS attacks, combined with the ability to change the view according to attack type, country, duration, as well as other variables. It is also in real time.

    Negatives:

    Despite providing a great visual, it’s hard to see the direct benefit to Information Security professionals. The information is on such a macro level (the country being the smallest unit of analysis), the the information is not really usable.

    4. http://map.norsecorp.com/#/

    Norse Threat Detector

    Figure 3: Norse Real Time Cyber Attack Map

    This is another map showing real time cyber security attacks. Norse boasts the world’s largest dedicated threat intelligence network with over 8 million servers.

    One of the great advantages of this map over the Digital Attach Map, is its specificity when it comes to the source of the attack. With more specific data, cyber security professionals are able to better pinpoint the source of the attached and, therefore, how to stop it.

    Positives:

    Real time cyber security information with more detail than the Digital Attack Map.

    Negatives:

    The map is a tool to persuade you to sign up to Norse’s paid-for services.

    5. https://www.bbc.com/news/topics/cp3mvpdp1r2t/cyber-attack

    For those of you looking for a more mainstream, article style newsfeed, the BBC is not a bad option. Based on the last few weeks, it has been publishing 3 to 4 articles a week about cyber security attacks. Of course, these articles will often lack the technical detail many cyber security professionals are accustomed to, however, for a general overview and update of mainstream threats, it is a nice option.

    Positives:

    Regular updates in article form. Accessible language which can be forwarded to clients or non-technical colleagues.

    Negatives:

    Lack of technical details and always retrospective, not in real time.

    How is the course instructed?

    The course is online and is delivered via EC Council’s iLearn self-paced option. It is facilitated in that all of the same modules taught in the live course are recorded and presented in a streaming video format. Self-paced in that a certification candidate can set their own learning pace by pausing the lectures and returning to their studies as their schedule permits!

    The base iLearn package includes:

    One Year Access to the official e-courseware, 6 months access to EC-Council’s official Online lab environment (iLabs) with all tools pre-loaded into platform, Certification Voucher & expert instructor-led training modules with streaming video presentations, practice simulators and learning supplements including official EC-Council Courseware for an all-inclusive training program that provides the benefits of classroom training at your own pace.

    In an effort to keep the base package affordable in this tough economy, the iLearn pricing structure was designed to provide the most amount of training for the least amount of budget. However, we realize that everyone learns differently, so we have added popular upgrade options such as tablets, DVDS, Additional Labs, or physical courseware.

    Why take the Advanced Penetration Testing (CAST 611) Course?

    Unlike ECSAng Course, the APT Course prepares you for real life scenarios. Students have to overcome defenses as well as discover targets, similar to situations you may encounter in ‘the real world’. Not only does the course teach you how to perform a professional security test, but it also shows you how to then present your findings in reports. For IT professionals who are serious about a career in information security, this course is a valuable addition to your skills and qualifications.

    About the Advanced Penetration Testing (APT – CAST 611) Online Training Course

    The APT Course focuses on identifying and assessing the risk to your clients. This requires learning what areas of the network can be potentially penetrated by a threat, and then taking the data, analyzing it, and presenting in a usable form to the client.

    Another thing that APT does is prepare you for a number of different targets. The course range offers students many different targets, and the targets get progressively more difficult. Once a student accomplishes the goal of determining the weaknesses of the first targets, and then assessing that risk, they move to more complex ranges with more difficult targets.

    The target designs are based on more than 25 years of real world experience from a professional pen tester whose task was also to work as a network defender. Students can expect to encounter decoys triggers and honeypot/honeynets that they will have to find. There are more than 12 targets at every level.

    APT has had many students who have completed or attempted other hands-on courses, and they have let us know that the changing targets are a significant challenge, and very few have mastered all the levels of the targets.

    The course includes invaluable training about real world penetration issues, including:

    • Exploitation
    • Post Exploitation
    • Advanced Techniques
    • Data Analysis
    • Reporting

    APT (CAST 611) Online Course FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Not sure if EC Council’s APT Online Course is right for you? Read our FAQs below to help clear up any uncertainty.

    Why should I take CAST 611 if I already have ECSAv9?

    ECSAv9 offers 12 challenges. Each challenge informs the student what machine to assess and/or discover weaknesses in and provides the student a guide through the pen test with the object of discovering targets. (Akin to a CTF for practice purposes.) ECSAv9 is a terrific first step pen-test course. Think of ECSAv9 as less lecture and more labs.

    Conversely, In the CAST 611, the student is only provided a scope of work document, and no other guidance, which is a huge step closer to preparing the student for a real life scenario. In this course students will also have to overcome defenses as well as discover targets. Think of CAST 611 as all labs.

    What is the difference between CAST 611 and other Hands On-Courses>

    As with any course there are other pen test courses on the market and in our opinion some are better than others. We find that these courses focus on the building of scripts and the writing of exploits aspect of penetration testing which can limit the audience and reach of the course.

    Can I take CAST 611 after CEH without ECSA?>

    Yes, the CEH provides you with enough information about the process which will enable you to take the CAST 611without first attending ECSA. The thing to remember is that no matter what courses you take, the more practice you are exposed to the closer you are to becoming a pro-level pen tester. That said, if you don’t practice with the tools you were taught in the CEH course, then you will need a refresher on how to use the tools.
