Radware Threat Research Center has identified a hijacking campaign aimed at Brazilian Bank customers through their IoT devices, attempting to gain their bank credentials.
This is something that I have struggled with for most of my working life. As a technology professional, it is my job to pick the best products and solutions or to dig deeper to marry that technological decision with one that’s best for my organization. Is it incumbent on me to consider my suppliers’ financials, or their country or origin, or perhaps their business practices?
This thought was thrust sharply into focus during the past few months. First, we were reminded that a sound business still needs to have sound financials. The second warning is around the ramifications of a trade war.
The financial services industry is, by its very nature, inherently risk adverse. The sheer volume of transactional data moving through networks can be staggering and protecting that data from cyberthreats is strategically and fiscally critical. To understand how financial service executives keep their most prized applications secure, Radware surveyed over 600 chief information security officers (CISOs) and other security leaders across financial services, retail and healthcare industries. This article provides an overview of key findings from Radware’s web application security report: Web Application Security in a Digitally Connected World.
If you are like most people and myself, you do not go into a bank and have a conversation with a teller when you make a deposit or withdrawal. You probably do not write paper checks and sign them.

Earlier this year, Radware published “From the Front Lines- How a Multinational Bank Handled a Ransom Threat and SSL-based Attack” – a very timely piece describing the risks that large banking institutions face in the current security climate.
Every year when we publish our Global Application & Network Security Report, one of the most popular aspects of the report is what we call our “Ring of Fire.”
The Ring of Fire presents a graphical representation of evolving and relative risk from cyber security threats across some of the most commonly targeted industries.
