The risks presented by ransomware and cyber-extortion events have likely found a place in your own security team’s discussions, and rightly so. Ransomware attacks have increased over the past decade. The numbers are staggering, if not overwhelming, and make it abundantly clear that ransomware attacks are not a threat that no organization, regardless of size and industry, can afford to ignore.

It therefore follows that proactively protecting corporate assets and mitigating cyber risks is an essential investment for any business today. Without a threat preparedness and response plan in place, the damage from a ransomware or cyber extortion event could ripple through your organizations, resulting in data loss, service inaccessibility, operational disruptions, loss of confidence and competitive advantage in the market, as well as other costly and long-lasting repercussions. .

Improve threat preparedness

When your company’s data is exploited in a cyber extortion attack, a quick determination must be made of the nature and extent of the attack, followed by the execution of plans to respond and mitigate the attack. Because the longer a ransomware attack goes unaddressed, the greater the potential damage to your organization’s ability to conduct business as usual.

While an organization’s ultimate goal is complete prevention of an attack, mitigation is a more likely (and perhaps more reasonable) goal, and organizations should prioritize preparedness as much as to prevention. Prevention includes implementing best practices and measures that can prevent ransomware events from occurring while positioning the organization to suffer the least amount of damage in the event of an attack.

Ransomware preparedness can be broken down into three main components: preparation, detection and insulation.

Preparation

Your organization’s ability to respond to a ransomware event is directly affected by the tools you have immediately, making preparation a key part of successfully navigating an attack. Proper preparation works doubly to educate your teams on how to prevent attacks and to provide guidance on what to do if you are targeted.

Here are some of the things you may want to include when developing your organization’s plan for cyber extortion attacks.

  • Create an incident response playbook that contains all relevant information related to responding to a ransomware attack.
  • Regularly hold mandatory training sessions for employees to educate them on how to prevent hackers from gaining access to company systems to carry out an attack. The importance of password hygiene, warning signs of email phishing, and online security best practices may be among the topics covered.
  • Empower employees to help prevent attacks by providing them with protocols and resources to report suspicious activity and raise concerns if they feel there is a risk that needs to be addressed.

Detection

Detection refers to the tools, technology, people and processes in place to notice that an attack is occurring or has occurred and to identify its source within the network. Specific subcomponents of detection include:

  • Have a robust system of platforms configured to monitor your networks and alert you to suspicious activitysuch as the appearance of a known ransomware file extension or the rapid renaming of a large volume of files, which may indicate that they are being encrypted.
  • Feed your threat intelligence program with easily accessible and up-to-date knowledge on specific ransomware actors/groups and tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) – including technical intelligence – to better anticipate risk openings and potential attacks.
  • Implement multi-factor authentication to reduce the likelihood of ransomers gaining unauthorized access to your systems.

Insulation

To limit its spread, insulation should be your organization’s first priority after realizing that a ransomware attack is targeting your organization. Designing your systems to separate the different networks can have a huge impact when every second counts. Specific isolation subcomponents include:

  • Limit each employee’s access to only the files and data they need to do their job.
  • Shut down infected systems and completely disconnect them from your organization’s network as soon as possible.
  • Disabling potentially dangerous means of spreading data between devices, including VPN, NAC, and AD-user.

Respond to a ransomware attack

Once you’ve successfully detected and stopped the progress of a ransomware attack, it’s essential to have a response plan already in place to help you save decision-making time and control reactions. emotional, which may arise during a potential emergency. It can be difficult to determine the full extent of a ransomware attack, and the more data the threat actor extorts or encrypts, the longer it may take to understand the nature of the breach.

A good response plan is well established, easily accessible when needed, and based on the resources available to the organization at the time it is written. It has several parts, including the designation of the parties that manage each step; contact details for all parties who will communicate and negotiate directly with the ransomers; and up-to-date protocols related to legal compliance for processing the ransom payment. But of these, one of the most crucial elements to address in your plan is negotiation management.

Negotiation

Negotiation encompasses any engagement with the threat actor and is necessary to reach any form of resolution, whether payment is involved or not. It is always advisable to hire a professional familiar with threat actor engagement, ransomware attacks, and the legal obligations of ransomware victims; knowledge of current cyber extortion trends, threat actor TTPs, and threat actor groups is also important. Using a negotiator who is transparent throughout the process and responsive to the goals of the client organization greatly facilitates a smooth discussion that is more likely to resolve in a way the organization is comfortable with.

There is no one-size-fits-all method for trading. However, there are some general things you need to be prepared for if your organization finds itself in this worst-case scenario.

  • Keep all chats and communications with ransomware actors private and limit internal access to threat actor communication records. It may be advisable to switch to non-network based communications if you are unsure whether the threat actor has access to your email communications.
  • Be prepared for professional negotiators. Further emphasizing the importance of having your own professional negotiator to use in this situation, it is important to note that many ransomware attackers have been observed using professionals with a career in negotiations behind them in order to compel organizations to comply with ransom demands.
  • It is highly recommended to involve law enforcement from the start of a ransomware attack. Not only does this help your organization ensure that it is handling the attack within the bounds of the law, but law enforcement can also sometimes provide information about specific threat actors or their TTPs, helping you in your negotiations and improving the prospects of your situation.

Extra pressure

There are other ways threat actors use to add pressure to negotiations aside from the ransomware attack itself, including:

  • Implementation of DDoS attacks
  • Directly email employees about the attack
  • Pretending to have data they didn’t actually exfiltrate to make the situation worse
  • Contact executives or customers of victims to educate them about the attack
  • Posting sensitive personal information in public forums or on social media
  • Leaving backdoors that allow ransomware attackers to carry out a second attack against the same organization

Being the victim of a cyber extortion attack is stressful and difficult. In order to mitigate its impact on your business and your customers, it is imperative that you prepare for all of these potential additional factors that could increase the aggressiveness of a ransomware attack and cause lasting damage to the reputation and bottom line of your business. organization.

Explained: Who are the G7, including the Summit in Germany to which India was invited? https://amitysource.com/explained-who-are-the-g7-including-the-summit-in-germany-to-which-india-was-invited/ Sun, 26 Jun 2022 16:39:04 +0000 https://amitysource.com/explained-who-are-the-g7-including-the-summit-in-germany-to-which-india-was-invited/ Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Germany to attend the Group of Seven (G7) Summit at Schloss Elmau, a century-old retreat in a nature reserve in the Bavarian Alps.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Germany to attend the Group of Seven (G7) Summit at Schloss Elmau, a century-old retreat in a nature reserve in the Bavarian Alps. The Prime Minister is expected to speak at two sessions focusing on the environment, energy, climate, food security, health, gender equality and democracy, among others, the External Affairs Ministry announced earlier this week. He will also hold bilateral meetings with the leaders of some of the participating countries.

Group of 7

The G7 is an informal forum of major industrialized countries, including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. European Union representatives are always present at the annual meeting of G7 Heads of State and Government. Germany holds the presidency of the G7 in 2022.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has invited India, as well as Argentina, Indonesia, Senegal and South Africa to the 2022 Summit as partner countries. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will participate virtually on June 27, the G7 Presidency announced.

A number of international organizations, including the United Nations, the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Trade Organization (WTO), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, are also participating in the Summit. .

G6, G8, G7

A brief history of the group on the G7 Germany site indicates that the first “World Economic Summit”, which later became the G7, was launched in 1975 by former French President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing and then Federal Chancellor Helmut Schmidt. The heads of state and government of Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Japan and the United States – a Group of Six – gathered for a fireside chat at the castle of Rambouillet in France.

The participants exchanged ideas on the economic problems of the 1970s – the first oil crisis and the collapse of the system of fixed exchange rates (Bretton Woods) – and agreed on international economic policy and the first measures to fight the global recession.

In 1976 Canada was added to the group and the first G7 met in Puerto Rico. The first talks between the then European Community and the G7 took place in London in 1977, and since the Ottawa summit of 1981, the European Community (now the European Union) has participated in all work.

In the 1980s, the interest of the G7 broadened to include foreign and security policy issues. The then Soviet Secretary General, Mikhail Gorbachev, was invited to talks on the sidelines of the London summit in 1991. In 1998, the Group of Eight was formed with Russia joining. Russia was expelled from the group after violating Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in 2014.

Germany is taking over the G7 Presidency for the seventh time this year. Japan will be president in 2023.

G7 numbers

In 2022, G7 countries account for 10% of the world’s population, 31% of global GDP and 21% of global carbon dioxide emissions, according to the Summit’s website. China and India, the two most populous countries with the highest GDP figures in the world, are not part of the group.

In all G7 countries, annual public sector spending exceeded revenue in 2021. Most G7 countries also had high levels of gross debt, particularly Japan (263% of GDP), Italy ( 151%) and the United States (133%).

The G7 countries are important players in world trade. The United States and Germany, in particular, are important exporting countries. The two have sold goods worth more than US$1 trillion overseas in 2021.

Campus news

SUNY’s #2 government student is Michael Casey, 22, a graduate of Greenwich High School (Upstate New York) and former Eagle Scout who went to SUNY Adirondack and is currently completing his four-year psychology degree at SUNY Plattsburgh . .

In an April 30 ceremony, Casey was elected vice president of the SUNY Student Assembly, the governing body representing students at 64 campuses statewide.

Leadership comes naturally to him. Casey previously served as a representative on the executive committee of the State University of New York Student Assembly. He was also a student senator with the SUNY Adirondack Student Association. He was vice-chief of the section of the Order of the Arrow. He is also a Young Adult Advisory Delegate to the General Assembly, representing the Albany Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Read our latest issue! Fast, free, anonymous! Click above!

Casey said in a statement, “It is a tremendous honor to serve the more than 600,000 students at the State University of New York as Vice President of the Student Assembly. In my role as Vice President, I will be involved in SUNYSA business and event planning, and I look forward to pushing for elements of our newly adopted advocacy program. I am ensuring that during the short one-year period that I will serve, represent SUNY and SUNYSA with dignity, honor, and integrity as the second representative of student government in our university system.

Ally Chun, a sophomore at Binghamton University studying politics, philosophy and law, was elected president. Jake Longuil, a Stony Brook University graduate student in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, was elected Treasurer. Tasnia Zzoha, a sophomore at Nassau Community College studying liberal arts, was elected secretary. The officers’ terms began June 1. To get further input, I interviewed Casey. Here is the conversation:

DJ: What made you decide to stand for election?

CM: I chose to run for Vice President of the SUNY Student Assembly because I wanted to make sure there was leadership that mattered. I was fed up with the internal politics within the organization, and I wanted to come in and lend a firm hand to the leadership of the Assembly to get us out of this horrible time at the Student Assembly.

DJ: Describe your transition from high school to SUNY Adirondack now to Plattsburgh.

CM: My transition from Greenwich Junior-Senior High School to SUNY Adirondack was seamless. Instead of driving only five minutes or walking about 10 minutes to class, I had to drive about 40 minutes to class, and it was like high school but in a larger pool of students at SUNY Adirondack. My transition from SUNY Adirondack to SUNY Plattsburgh was seamless because I already knew what to do and how to do it!

DJ: Should more students take the transfer route like you have?

CM: I would recommend that all students go to a community college first and then enroll in a four-year school in the SUNY system. It might not be as glamorous as going straight to a four-year school, but it saves you a lot of money. You will thank me for this long term advice.

DJ: Do you like Plattsburgh?

CM: I’ve only been to Plattsburgh about once a month to meet with a teacher from my class and work with the people at the Student Union on issues within the Association this past semester, fall 2021 , and I love this city. It’s a beautiful town on Lake Champlain, with plenty of places to go for a good cup of coffee or a bite to eat.

DJ: I hear there has been some controversy with the SUNY Chancellor search and the lack of student involvement in the selection process. What is the problem and has it been resolved? What are the next steps ?

CM: I am well aware of the problems linked to the lack of involvement in the process of selecting our next Chancellor. For some information, the chancellor is the CEO of the SUNY system. They are accountable for our institution and set the course for where our institution is going for their tenure. I am very concerned about the lack of student and community college involvement in the chancellor selection process. In terms of student involvement, I think it lies in the lack of trust that the administration and trustees rightly have in student leadership because of what happened at the Student Assembly over the past year.

DJ: What was it ?

CM: The Students’ Assembly passed a no-confidence resolution against the Chancellor [Jim] Malatras after the release of emails and SMS.

DJ: Well, you had to take a stand on the matter. What else has the Student Assembly accomplished?

CM: We also adopted our advocacy agenda, which includes items we will lobby the state legislature and system administration for, and we took one of those ideas to the state legislature. ‘State. It was the law on campuses without hunger. The other thing we did was set up a forum with the board where students could openly express themselves and share their ideas with leaders in their system.

DJ: Those sound good. What other big issues will SUNY SA address this upcoming academic year?

CM: We need to work on how we discuss diversity issues within the organization itself. We need to work on how we can make racial minorities feel safe in communities in the upstate region where the majority of our SUNY campuses are located. We need to work on improving how we engage students in writing ideas about what they want to see presented to system administration and the New York State Legislature.

DJ: Any plans for you personally this summer?

CM: I hope to work as a lock operator for the New York State Canal Corporation on the Champlain Canal and have some relaxation and continue the advocacy that my fellow SUNY students call me to do, even during summer vacation.

We are what we say we are, so we have to be careful what we say we are.. ”― Kurt Vonnegut

Today we delve deeper into a name that comes up from time to time in the comments of Seeking Alpha subscribers. We last published a article on this small-cap name in December after recently gaining key FDA approval. We track the company’s progress in the analysis below.

Stock chart

Looking for Alpha

Company presentation:

ChemoCentryx, Inc. (NASDAQ: CCXI) focuses on the development and commercialization of new drugs for inflammatory disorders, autoimmune diseases and cancer. The company is based just outside of San Francisco. The shares are currently trading around $25.50 per share and sport an approximate market capitalization of $1.8 billion.

COMPANY VISION

May Company presentation

When we last reviewed this company, it was only two months before the FDA approved its lead drug candidate TAVNEOS as an add-on treatment for adult patients with severe active autoantibody-associated vasculitis. cytoplasmic neutrophils (ANCA vasculitis), in combination with standard therapy .

This was a big win for the company, even though the drug is targeted at a small subset of the vasculitis population. The drug was launched in the United States where it owns all rights. TAVNEOS has also been launched in Germany and Austria by partner Vifor Pharma, which owns the rights outside the United States. ChemoCentryx collects royalties between mid-teens and mid-twenties on all sales outside of this country. TAVNEOS has also been approved in the UK and Canada.

Pipeline

May Company presentation

TAVNEOS is also being developed for other conditions. The company has other compounds in an earlier stage of development, but they will not be relevant to this analysis.

This compound targets lupus nephritis or LN. LN is kidney inflammation caused by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus).

TAVNEOS For LN

May Company presentation

ChemoCentryx expects to receive comments from the FDA shortly regarding the clinical development plan for this indication, which it expects to initiate in the second half of 2022.

TAVNEOS is also being developed to treat severe hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). It is a chronic skin condition, which causes painful boil-like bumps that form under the skin and often secrete pus and blood.

TAVNEOS for HS

May Company presentation

The company plans to meet with the FDA to discuss the Phase III development of TAVNEOS in patients with Hurley Stage III (severe) HS late in the second quarter. Management aims to launch a phase III clinical trial in these patients in the second half of this year.

Finally, TAVNEOS targets C3 or C3G glomerulopathy. There are no FDA-approved therapies for C3G, which is a group of related conditions that cause kidney dysfunction. Management plans to meet with the FDA in the second half of this year to discuss TAVNEOS’ “ACCOLADE” Phase II clinical trial data set for treating 3G-C.

First quarter results:

On May 5, the company released the first quarter Numbers. ChemoCentryx posted a GAAP loss of 55 cents per share on revenue of just under $5.5 million. Both the top and bottom numbers largely missed expectations. U.S. net product sales increased more than 500% from the fourth quarter to $5.4 million. Collaboration and licensing revenue made up the rest of the sales.

A $45 million regulatory milestone payment that ChemoCentryx obtained for the approval of TAVNEOS in Europe during the first quarter of 2022 will be recognized over a period of approximately four years. The timing of recognition was most likely the biggest factor driving the company’s first quarter’big title‘ Miss. Royalties from sales in Europe are expected to start flowing in and reported from the second quarter earnings report.

Analysts’ comments and results:

Over the past six weeks, four analyst firms, including Raymond James and Stifel Nicolaus, have reissued buy ratings on the stock. The price targets offered range from $64 to $106 per share. On May 10, JPMorgan maintained their holding rating on the stock, but raised their price target from $30 to $34 per share.

Just over eight percent of the outstanding float of these shares is currently held short. Insiders have sold just under $100,000 of stock so far in 2022. There have been no insider stock purchases this year. The company ended the first quarter with just over $370 million in cash and marketable securities on its balance sheet against negligible long-term debt after posting a net loss of $38.6 million in the first quarter.

Verdict:

The current analysis consensus a ChemoCentryx posting a net loss of just under $2 per share as revenue more than doubled to nearly $70 million in fiscal 2022. Further improvement expected in 2022 fiscal year 2023 with revenue rising north of $190 million and net loss being reduced to around 75 cents per share.

Key objectives for 2022

May Company presentation

The company appears to be well executed on the development and deployment of TAVNEOS. The balance sheet appears to be in good shape and quarterly cash burn should start to decline as TAVNEOS gains traction on sales. Initial rollouts always seem to have some hiccups, especially for small-cap companies in this pandemic era. Analyst firms are modeling impressive revenue growth for this company.

We concluded our first ChemoCentryx review by saying it deserved a little ‘watch the article‘ position. This continues to be the case as the company pushes the development of TAVNEOS forward. Options are available against equity and they are both liquid and lucrative. Therefore, I will continue to hold my small position in this name via covered call assets.

We revel in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has undergone to achieve this beauty.. -Maya Angelou

Africa’s development aspirations can be realized by deepening cooperation and collaboration with the rest of the world, according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.

But the imperative for Africa’s economic sovereignty also exists because there are areas where public and private sector leaders must continue to strive for it.

Osinbajo said so during his address at the opening panel of the ongoing Africa CEO Forum being held in the Ivorian city of Abidjan.

The theme of the panel was “Economic sovereignty: from ambition to action”.

The Vice-President, who arrived yesterday evening in Côte d’Ivoire, was welcomed at Félix Houphouët-Boigny International Airport by the Prime Minister of Côte d’Ivoire, Mr. Patrick Achi.

Other speakers on the opening panel were President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana; the Managing Director of the International Finance Corporation, Mr. Makhtar Diop; the Governor of the Central Bank of Kenya, Dr. Patrick Njoroge; CEO of Telcar Cocoa, Kate Kanyi Tometi-Fotso and CEO of Instadeep, Karim Beguir.

Stressing the need for collaboration between Africa and the rest of the world, Osinbajo said, “I think we have to be a little more careful with the concept of economic sovereignty because we really need to collaborate more and with the how development takes place. , we have to watch some of these things.

“For example, if we look at the way technology is changing, which is critical for us in Nigeria, especially the taxation issues of tech companies and all that, obviously it’s difficult and it’s an expression major of sovereign power – the power to tax.

Continuing, the Vice President said, “The way the world and technology are structured today, it is impossible to use the same basis – a personal and territorial basis for taxation. These are multinational corporations that span across countries and continents.

In another conversation with the forum organizers, BUA Group CEO Alhaji Abdulsamad Rabiu spoke about the concept of economic sovereignty, urging Africa to look inward as a way to accelerate development on the continent. .

He cited harnessing the opportunities offered by the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) and improving infrastructure as some of the key areas for leaders on the continent to focus on.

Earlier during the opening ceremony of the forum, President Alassane Ouattara of Côte d’Ivoire hailed the initiative of the organizers to bring together leaders from the public and private sectors across the continent and beyond to discuss and develop new pathways to drive the transformation of economies across Africa.

Ransomware Group Very Angry To Be Associated With Lavish Russian Hackers https://amitysource.com/ransomware-group-very-angry-to-be-associated-with-lavish-russian-hackers/ Tue, 07 Jun 2022 15:28:51 +0000 https://amitysource.com/ransomware-group-very-angry-to-be-associated-with-lavish-russian-hackers/ Piracy.

Piracy. Disinformation. Surveillance. CYBER is Motherboard’s podcast and reports on the dark underbelly of the internet.

The LockBit ransomware group really, really wants you to believe that its ransomware as a service is not used by Evil Corp, some of the most infamous and flashy hackers on the planet, as the company’s researchers claim. of Mandiant cybersecurity.

Last week, Mandiant published a report Thursday, which said a group riding Evil Corp had recently switched to using LockBit ransomware. Evil Corp is a Russia-based hacking group whose members flaunt their extravagant wealth by, among other things, do donuts in custom Lamborghinis on the streets of Russian cities.

On Monday, LockBit claimed to have hacked Mandiant, apparently as retribution for the cybersecurity firm’s report. On its website, LockBit said it planned to release hacked Mandiant documents. But when LockBit released the files, the data did not come from Mandiant at all. The cache was a small selection of chat logs of unknown provenance, photos of a Ferrari, and a bizarre rambling statement.

“Our group has nothing to do with Evil Corp. We are real underground darknet hackers, we have nothing to do with politics or special services like FSB, FBI, etc.,” the statement read. , included in a file named “mandiantyellowpress.com”. .txt”, read.

Do you have more information about Evil Corp or LockBit? We would love to hear from you. Using a non-work phone or computer, you can contact Joseph Cox securely on Signal on +44 20 8133 5190, Wickr on josephcox, OTR chat on jfcox@jabber.ccc.deor email joseph.cox@vice.com.

In December 2019, the US government sanctioned Evil Corp. In his report, Mandiant says he believes the group moved to using LockBit in an effort to “hinder attribution efforts in order to evade sanctions.”

Evil Corp using LockBit to avoid penalties might make sense because LockBit acts as ransomware-as-a-service. With this, affiliate hackers can break into a target and then use the ransomware to attempt to extort money from the victim. After a successful payment, the affiliate hackers then transfer a percentage of that money to the LockBit authors, the LockBit website says. In other words, many different hackers use LockBit, and Evil Corp could blend in with the crowd and still receive payments because its victims might not realize they are dealing with a sanctioned entity.

LockBit does not like this conclusion, judging by the statement.

“I was very surprised to read the news on Twitter from the yellow press. Mandiant.com is not professional. All attack scripts and tools are publicly available and can be used by any hacker on the planet, most of the attack methods are on the forums, githab [sic] and google, the fact that someone uses similar tools cannot be proof that the attack is made by the same person.

In February, the FBI released indicators of compromise related to LockBit. “LockBit 2.0 ransomware compromises victims’ networks through a variety of techniques, including but not limited to purchased access, unpatched vulnerabilities, insider access, and zero-day exploits” , the press release read. LockBit’s software does not infect machines if it detects that the computers are running a range of Eastern European languages, the statement adds.

A representative for LockBit did not respond to a request for comment from Motherboard sent before the files were released.

Mark Karayan, Senior Director of Marketing Communications at Mandiant, told Motherboard in an email before the data was released that “Mandiant is aware of these allegations associated with LockBit. “support for their claims. We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops.” After the files were released, Motherboard asked if Mandiant stood by his assessment of Thursday’s report.

“Yes,” Karayan replied.
