The week in security: Apple security scrutinised; certifications to boost cloud appeal

Security pundits were poring over Apple's new Yosemite operating system, with some noting that the revised Spotlight service was sharing search terms by default; Apple responded by arguing that the Spotlight Suggestions feature was in fact not violating user privacy, even as other onlookers warned that Yosemite's version of TextEdit would upload unsaved TextEdit document to the company's iCloud service.

In Pictures: CSO's Identity Driven Access Management Round Table

It's the centenary of the commencement of World War One. Back then, there were borders to protect. The soldiers knew who they were fighting and there were very few incursions where one side crossed a border undetected. Today's battles are different. The bad guys are stealing the good guys’ passwords and identities to get access to whatever they want. And they often wait weeks or even months before revealing their true objectives.

Cloud security: how to protect your data

To use Cloud computing securely requires companies to know where their data is stored and who has access to it. Ironically, the reason Cloud is so popular is because organisations don't want to worry about these details. So can the issue be solved by adhering to standards? Increasing legislation? Maybe we need a global technical disaster to ‘sober up’ an industry drunk on the power of Moore's Law.

Incident Response Plan

Do you take a fatalistic approach to cyber attack? ‘Whatever will be, will be’ is an attitude in life (and movies) that is well suited to events that evoke a spontaneous response—like who will you marry? These are the questions posed in Doris Day’s song from the Hitchcock movie ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much’. They’re not appropriate for incidents which inspire fear, which Doris learns when her son is kidnapped.

Navigating the balancing act: how to support user privacy whilst maintaining control of corporate-owned data

It goes without saying that government surveillance news dominates our media. From a global standpoint, the NSA leaks brought international attention to state organised spying. Locally, the Australian Government has been making headlines over its plans to develop legislation that will allow it to more easily access metadata from large organisations and telecoms providers to gain information on the consumers using their services in a bid to prevent acts of terrorism

Data storage and security in the cloud

With cloud computing continuing its journey as arguably the dominant technology of the current era, so too the way we use it and manage its capabilities continue to evolve. The cloud has given us new ways to think about lots of traditional IT habits and practices, and as more and more data finds its way into the cloud, this extends to subjects like business continuity, disaster recovery and general data security.

De-risking the cloud

The attractiveness of adopting cloud services continues to grow. Who can argue against access to the latest technologies, a pay as you go model, rapid provisioning/de-provisioning and on demand scaling? All of these benefits lead to improved agility, faster time to market and a business focus on the business (not managing IT). Many of the risks of cloud computing have become less frightening as organisations have become more comfortable with data sovereignty and availability issues.
