Testing Security Controls for Logic Based Attacks

A lot of attention is being focused on cryptography and other security controls being manipulated by attackers who are exploiting poor implementations, lack of maintenance and seemingly unforseen omissions in the controls coding. This can lead to a trusted security control being turned into a weapon of choice.

The encryption quiz

The complexity of encryption schemes has been increased dramatically in an attempt to outpace the development of computational tools designed to crack them. Now it's important to devise algorithms that can't be brute forced for trillions of years in the hopes that they will remain secure long enough to be useful before they, too, are broken. Here's a quiz about encryption to see how well you are versed in one of security's most important components. Keep track of your score and check at the end to see how well you stack up.

Exposing insider threats

Insider threats — for example, data theft, intellectual property loss, privacy breaches and financial fraud — can be the most challenging IT risks for an organisation to address because they may or may not be happening. But if an insider threat occurs, it could no doubt hurt financially and/or publically. So how do you implement early detection to discover and expose these threats?
