Healthcare data and data breaches: A second opinion:

We've barely begun 2015, yet some security predictions made at the end of last year are already being tested. One of those was a prediction by RSA that criminals will turn their attention to stealing personal health information, and the recent attack on US health insurer Anthem, is just one symptom that it might be happening sooner than our initial diagnosis.

Review: Self-Encrypting External Hard Disk Drives

With data becoming more valuable, the need for security also gets greater. Today’s technology and working behaviours both facilitate data being easily transported. Information is far less static due to home working, multiple office sites, low cost USB storage devices and DVDs. With all these portable devices and data being moved from place to place we must be mindful of data backup.

App Security- the great unspoken

There is no shortage of conversation around enterprise security. In light of some recent, high-profile hacking incidents, everyone’s talking about the importance of securing networks, data and devices in avoiding a worst case scenario of confidential customer or organisational information or IP being compromised. Interestingly, these conversations often neglect one vital component- the applications that operate on these systems and how their own vulnerabilities can bring down an organisations’ entire security strategy.

Integrated Threat Defence: Joining Forces to Defend Against Cyber Attacks

Today’s security landscape is constantly changing. Attackers are becoming more sophisticated and nimble, leading to new threats and attacks evolving every day. Tailor-made, stealthy threats now routinely evade traditional, point-in-time security defences by using multiple attack vectors. Further, advanced attacks use whatever unprotected paths exist - often blending paths - to compromise targets. Cyber criminals continue to go to great lengths to remain undetected, using technologies and methods that result in nearly imperceptible Indications of Compromise (IoCs). At the same time, the attack surface is increasing because modern networks are evolving, extending beyond traditional walls to include public and private data centres, endpoints, virtual machines, mobile devices, and the cloud.

Password Protection: How Far Can Hackers Get?

For years, passwords have been the dominant means by which organisations authenticate customer access to online services. Password-based authentication is easy and familiar for customers, and is initially inexpensive for organizations to deploy at scale. But, while password-based authentication may be appropriate in some instances, it is no longer suitable for the wide range of services where it is currently being used.

Sony Attack: an Australian Perspective

The cyber-attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment in late November is not the first time that the Sony Corporation has been a target for cyber-criminals and if anything can be learned from the attacks, it is that corporations are not taking cyber-security seriously.
