A vulnerability in Cisco’s widely deployed IOS software that was disclosed in the recent WikiLeaks dump of CIA exploits has triggered the company to release a critical warning for its Catalyst networking customers.
Cisco has reported a serious flaw in its IOS software that could give hackers complete control over 300 vulnerable enterprise and industrial switches.
Governments and corporations alike must escalate the treatment of cybersecurity to the point where it is handled with the same severity as any other risk, speakers at this month’s Cisco Live! conference agreed as security and IT administrators gathered to weigh the progress of cybersecurity policy and technology.
It may not be a word that most CISOs use to describe their jobs, but the proclamation of Cisco Systems chief information security officer Steve Martino (read CSO Australia’s interview) that “it’s sexy to be a security person today” resonated strongly with the themes of this year’s Cisco Live! conference in Melbourne.
Australia’s mandatory breach disclosure legislation has leapfrogged that in other countries and reflects the government’s world-beating cybersecurity posture, Cisco Systems’ most senior security executive has advised while warning that Australian security innovators must not be afraid to “go for it” to help the country dominate the region’s cybersecurity agenda.
Security orchestration methods and of course SDN is driving the need for programmable interfaces in security products. The Cisco ASA Firewall added a REST API back in December with the 9.3(2) code release. I've asked Mason Harris, from Cisco, to write up a quick how-to primer on the ASA API capabilities. Thank you Mason for the great information.
Cisco had a pretty large dump of security advisories today – seven “high priority” and one “critical” – impacting a variety of products.
Cisco today issued two “critical” security advisories, one for Cisco IOS and Cisco IOS XE Software, the other for the ongoing discovery of problems with Apache Struts2
Cisco issues one "Critical" warning for vulnerability in Aironet 1830 Series and 1850 Series Access Points
In an attempt to address such anxieties Cisco today announced Umbrella, a secure, cloud-based gateway, based on technology from OpenDNS and other technologies it acquired such as CloudLock as well as existing Cisco security services that together ultimately promises to offer secure business access to resources even when users are not using the safety of a VPN.
Cloud, mobility, Internet of Everything (IoE), and social media technologies, combined with digital business practices, have helped countless organisations transform how they operate. But they have also increased the attack surface. Old methods of cybersecurity that focus on perimeter defense are no longer enough to keep an organisation safe. Organisations recognise that cyber attacks will be launched against them. But by adopting cyber resilient architectures and business processes, they can shift from a reactive to proactive state and tackle cyber risks with confidence.
