  • They Fought the Law, The Law Won

    Reading the headlines relating to cyber-security you would not be blamed for thinking we are in a losing battle against relentless foes. The breaches at OPM, Ashley Madison, Target, Sony, and many others highlight criminals are consistently looking for ways to breach our defences. It is understandable then why many CISOs may look nervously at their networks wondering if they will be the next victim, or worse, are they already a victim without knowing it.

  • CSO's CISO Executive Career and Leadership Success Guide

    A lot has changed since the early years, when enterprises first began embracing the CISO position. Back then, the CISO role was primarily a technical one: control user access, secure the databases, find and patch vulnerabilities, keep the malware out, and eventually to help build secure websites and eCommerce platforms. In those days, most of the highly proprietary data resided within the local area network, the data center, or within PCs and notebooks.

  • Security Manager's Journal: Breaches are everywhere

    Follow me, if you will, on a journey back in time to just one year ago. As 2013 turned into 2014, the information security industry was buzzing about the latest spate of breaches. Target had ushered in a new era of retail security breaches, with 40 million card numbers lost to the hackers. Little did we know at the time that this was just the beginning, and small potatoes in comparison to what was to come. One year ago, Neiman Marcus and Michaels had joined Target, and <a href="http://www.computerworld.com/article/2487265/security0/security-manager-s-journal--cyberattacks-just-got-personal.html">I wrote in response to the growing number of breach disclosures</a> that "in fact, I have to wonder which retailers have <em>not</em> suffered breaches. The word on the street is that at least a half-dozen other retailers were compromised in the past few months, without publicity." Sadly, this turned out to be true. I hate being right all the time.

Whitepapers about Target

  • Defending against application Denial of Service attacks

    This whitepaper digs into application DoS attacks, offering both an overview of common attack tactics and possible mitigations for each. By the end of the paper you should have a guide and an understanding of how your application availability will be attacked, and what you can do about it. •Attackers increasingly leverage availability-impacting attacks, both to cause downtime and to mask other kinds of attacks — usually involving data theft. •Adversaries exploit weaknesses in application stack components to knock infrastructure over, but the application itself can be targeted •Defending against AppDoS attacks requires a multi-faceted approach that typically starts with a mechanism to filter attack traffic
