Cyber Threats To Veterans In 2021: Spam And Scams Exploit Support For Veterans
Recorded News, November 16th, 2021

Veterans and their charitable donors have become the targets of many types of financial scam operations in recent years. These operations benefit from two emotional avenues by which to exploit victims: veterans struggling to support themselves, and those who wish to help veterans through charitable giving. Per Recorded Future data, we have found that veterans and their supporters are likely targeted by scams or spam associated with newly registered domains. We also identified an example of a scam operation called Protect Our Veterans SP, which uses several vectors to target veterans and their supporters, including fake charity, political action committee (PAC), and job scams. Finally, through psycholinguistic analysis, we have identified words, phrases, and syntax used on scam sites that indicate malicious intent by scam operators. To help those seeking to help veterans avoid falling prey to these operations, we offer several recommendations, such as how to research charitable organizations effectively and how to spot potential scams or spam based on their language and platform more

Fortinet Security Fabric: The Industry's Highest-Performing Cybersecurity Mesh Platform
Fortinet News, November 16th, 2021

This has led to security sprawl that complicates management, fragments visibility, and limits the ability of organizations to respond effectively to threats. That's due, in part, to today's enterprises having deployed an average of 45 security solutions across their network, making any sort of centralized management nearly impossible. And worse, detecting and responding to a cyber incident requires coordination across 19 of those tools, leading to complex workarounds that need to be constantly managed and reconfigured every time a device is upgraded. more

As consumer behavior continues to shift from traditional linear TV (i.e. cable) to multi-device and on-demand viewing (i.e. connected TV (CTV) and over-the-top (OTT) media), advertisers are doubling down on CTV and OTT ad spend.

To help advertisers effectively measure ad performance across their media investments, Oracle Moat has added new capabilities to its cross-channel audience measurement offering.
