Robotics, AI or company cars – where managers see cyber threats
Robotics, AI or company cars – where managers see cyber threats Image: MS - KI

German and Swiss C-level managers see a need for action, particularly in the home office, to better protect sensitive data there in the future. Austrians believe that smart building technologies are vulnerable. In Germany, company cars are considered important and people are rather skeptical about future technologies. "Boss, what do you think about cyber security?": this is the answer to the large-scale management study by Sophos for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. One part of the analysis examines the question of where C-level managers see an increased need for IT security measures in the company in the future. Bosses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland were surveyed...

In the Uptime Institute survey, 60 percent of companies say they have experienced a major outage in the last three years and that cyberattacks and ransomware are an increasing cause of the expensive outages. Many have an emergency plan - but not one ready. Companies lose business-critical data, although 95 percent of respondents have a disaster recovery plan. However, only 24 percent have it ready, well documented, tested and updated. But such a plan is essential to ensure rapid recovery and continuous improvement in disaster response...

Win 11 Copilot+ Recall: Microsoft is building IT security under pressure
Copilot+ Recall: Microsoft is building IT security under pressure: MS - AI

Shortly after Microsoft boss Satya Nadella introduced Copilot+ Recall for Windows 11, IT security experts issued devastating verdicts and even used tools to read databases. The storm of indignation over so much incompetence in terms of security was so great that Microsoft delivered a new security concept within a very short time. Anyone who installed the new Microsoft 11 with Copilot+ Recall had the service automatically activated immediately: Windows 11 records the user's activities on the PC every 5 seconds, analyzes the images, extracts the text and writes everything into a database. The…

Ransomware: 97 percent of those affected seek advice from the authorities

An enormous number of companies turn to official institutions in the event of a cyber attack. The current Sophos State of Ransomware Report confirms that, in addition to just reporting, many of those affected are also looking for advice or instructions on how to restore their data. According to the annual State of Ransomware 2024 Report, 97 percent of organizations surveyed that were victims of ransomware last year worked with law enforcement or other government agencies. This impressively high percentage applies equally to the global and DACH survey results. More than half (59 percent worldwide and 56 percent in…

Only with product controls and SOC countermeasures can LLMs be introduced safely. With the LLM Safety Assessment: The Definitive Guide on Avoiding Risk and Abuses, Elastic has published the latest research results from its Security Labs. The LLM security assessment examines the security of large language models (LLMs). It recommends best practices to mitigate attacks and measures to prevent LLM misuse. Implementations of generative AI and LLMs have increased significantly over the past 18 months and are being implemented as quickly as possible in some companies. This has increased the attack surface. At the same time, there is a lack of…

Efficient attack tools: How hackers use AI LLMs for their own purposes

The use of AI can automate routine tasks, make processes more efficient and increase productivity. This applies to the legal economy as well as, unfortunately, to organized cybercrime. Large Language Models (LLM) in particular are used by criminal actors - less as visionary all-rounder technologies, but rather as efficient tools for improving standard attacks. Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT have been in the public eye since the end of 2022. This raises the question of what effects they have on cybersecurity if hackers misuse them to create malicious content. When using LLMs…

AI-powered cyber attacks are increasing
AI-powered cyber attacks are increasing

Cyberattacks are more sophisticated than ever and AI-powered attacks pose the greatest risk. This is what the Keeper Security Insight Report 2024 finds. It shows that IT managers are not sufficiently prepared for the new wave of threat vectors. Worldwide, 92 percent (97 percent in Germany) of those surveyed said that the number of cyber attacks had increased compared to the previous year. In parallel with the increasing frequency, 95 percent of IT leaders worldwide and in Germany say that cyberattacks are more sophisticated than ever before and that they are unprepared for this new wave of threat vectors. The…
