CTM360 provides assistance on different aspects of cyber threat management.
Social media threat management is now a harsh reality of an online existence; it is now exceedingly easy for threat actors to target companies and individuals using popular mediums (e.g. Facebook. Linkedin, Twitter). CTM360 helps companies and individuals find and minimize exposure against all threat types on social media and the digital domain. As an on-going service, CTM360 provides threat identification, neutralization, containment and/or minimization.
Within the 2+ billion people already on the worldwide web, a visible minority are found to be malicious or for-profit threat actors; often, this is done at the reputational or financial expense of companies or specific individuals. Companies need to safeguard what is projected using their name and/or protect against direct infringement. In a similar vein, individuals also need to be wary of their online identity for fear of it being misused. This is an on-going battle.
Social media currently ranks as one of the top five incident types (by volume) within the CTM360 incident management module.
Often overlooked but consistently lurking in the background, mobile application threats have grown exponentially but are still amongst the least acknowledged or understood. Whilst desktop and network security have gotten to a certain maturity level, mobile device security does not have the same level of focus on the development or vendor front. Complicating matters is the relevant ease with which it is to repackage official applications with backdoors or having unverified thing-party app stores hosting content.
Mobile apps are an easy entry-point into every organization and sky is the limit when it comes to giving an attacker control over a personal or corporate device.
CTM360 Mobile Application Threat Management is a focused approach to hunting across suspicious mobile app stores, unverified 3rd party stores, as well as legitimate app stores. One of the key missions is to not only identify threats but to also ensure that a member organization has complete visibility on where their verified apps are hosted.
Email communication is a given in the current global business environment. Ranging from 419 email fraud, business email compromise (BEC), phishing emails, spoofing attacks, malware-loaded attachments, and / or investment / job scams, email fraud remains an easy and highly successful vehicle for attackers. By bypassing all technology and attacking a real person, most network and application safety mechanisms become redundant or only as good as feel-good implementations.
Few organizations give consistent priority to fraudulent emails that pervade their corporate network. In most attacks, an individual is often (1) specifically socially engineered, (2) becomes the wrong person at the wrong time in a generic scam, or (3) becomes victim due to negligence or carelessness. Subsequently, an attacker has to only try a few times to capitalize on one weak link in the human chain.
Over time, CTM360 has identified best course of action for each scam type and offers an on-going service to enable companies to neutralize these threats. In tandem with the member organization and consistent with the overall Cyber Threat Management service, Team CTM360 looks to contain problems early.
Domain-squatting (aka cybersquatting) is a deliberate move by a threat actor on capitalizing on opportunities against established brands or celebrity names. Striking when least expected, domain squatters attempt to find gaps in domain management practices and register websites using look-alike, interchanged or slightly misspelled words. CTM360 maintains multiple lines of defense against such cases and methodically looks to neutralize such threats.
Usually profit-seeking or causing reputation harm, cyber-squatters seldom have good intentions when they capture a domain of value. Through various stages of escalation, CTM360 empowers organizations to take control of their brand name against cybersquatters. Beyond containment, CTM360 also goes the extra mile when dealing directly with cyber-squatted domains; mitigating the threat remains of paramount importance, whereas understanding objectives also remains key
Parallel to being a consistently fluid service provider, CTM360 has also developed an arsenal of tools to hunt and neutralize cases of online anti-fraud. The award-winning cyber incident response unit (CIRU) of CTM360 not only tackles cases of fraud on an on-going basis, but continually also looks to understand what new fraud delivery vehicles are evolving in cyberspace; the team then quickly connects all relevant pieces together and uses that knowledge to contain the threat directly. This is conducted across all industries and geographies.
Different cases of online fraud include investment scams, job scams, binary option trading scams, money mule bank accounts, SMS phishing etc.
The CTM360 online anti-fraud service is geared towards institutions that conduct e-commerce, have brand visibility online and/or suffer from financially-motivated attacks. With agility in service, determination to tackle all threats in cyberspace and innovation at the heart of all developments, CTM360 remains well-placed to offer a highly valuable service in the online anti-fraud space.
