  • 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.

The holiday shopping season is just getting into high gear, after all, and everybody knows it was from late November to mid-December last year when the catastrophic Target breach occurred.

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
