On June 20, the lives of cyberanalysts and threat hunters who use QRadar and IBM i2 Analyst’s Notebook are about to get a whole lot easier. A new app, IBM i2 QRadar Offense Investigator, enables QRadar users to push alerts and incident data directly to IBM i2 Analyst’s Notebook (version 9.0.6 or later) for in-depth visual analysis.

IBM i2 Analyst’s Notebook provides a rich, multidimensional visual analysis environment that empowers users to uncover hidden patterns and connections buried in disparate data sets. It features mathematical modeling that allows users to conduct temporal, histogram, geospatial and social network analysis across structured and unstructured data to uncover insightful trends about threats, threat actors and vulnerabilities.

By pushing QRadar network incident and alert data into i2 Analyst’s Notebook, IBM i2 QRadar Offense Investigator app users can proactively analyze that event data along with non-network data, such as HR, Dark Web and open source data. Combining these disparate data sets allows analysts to correlate seemingly unrelated events and details, creating a comprehensive understanding of the threat — and the threat actor — so they can quickly determine how to mitigate it.

Today’s determined cybercriminals will outsmart your security. Download the IBM i2 QRadar Offense Investigator app to put them on the defense.

New Attack Targets Online Customer Service Channels

An unknown attacker group is targeting customer service agents at gambling and gaming companies with a new malware effort. Known as IceBreaker, the code is capable of stealing passwords and cookies, exfiltrating files, taking screenshots and running custom VBS scripts. While these are fairly standard functions, what sets IceBreaker apart is its infection vector. Malicious actors are leveraging the helpful nature of customer service agents to deliver their payload and drive the infection process. Here’s a look at how IceBreaker…

Operational Technology: The evolving threats that might shift regulatory policy

Listen to this podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you find your favorite audio content. Attacks on Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) grabbed the headlines more often in 2022 — a direct result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine sparking a growing willingness on behalf of criminals to target the ICS of critical infrastructure. Conversations about what could happen if these kinds of systems were compromised were once relegated to “what ifs” and disaster movie scripts. But those days are…

Cybersecurity 101: What is Attack Surface Management?

There were over 4,100 publicly disclosed data breaches in 2022, exposing about 22 billion records. Criminals can use stolen data for identity theft, financial fraud or to launch ransomware attacks. While these threats loom large on the horizon, attack surface management (ASM) seeks to combat them. ASM is a cybersecurity approach that continuously monitors an organization’s IT infrastructure to identify and remediate potential points of attack. Here’s how it can give your organization an edge.

Six Ways to Secure Your Organization on a Smaller Budget
