The week in security: Obama promotes breach sharing, hackers do same

Big-name security tools aren't catching anywhere near all of the malware they are presented with, according to the latest lab testing results from Enex Labs, which found during testing in the second half of 2014 that as many as 100 percent of tested malware was making it through the defences of eight popular security tools. The results were corroborated by a FireEye study that found traditional security defences simply are not stopping security breaches.

With data becoming more valuable, the need for security also gets greater. Today’s technology and working behaviours both facilitate data being easily transported.

The Rise of the Cyber Mafia

“There is no clouding the fact that security threats are increasing. Hackers are becoming more advanced in their techniques and with more devices being connected than ever before, it is becoming easier to spread malicious software.
