25 Jun 2017 The Detection Trap: Improving Cybersecurity By Learning From The Secret Service [64392]
Dark Reading, June 12th 2017

"Intruders often understand the networks they target better than their defenders do," warns Nathaniel Gleicher in Dark Reading.

"It's surprisingly easy to break into the White House grounds - in March, someone slipped over the fence and roamed the compound before being caught. Nevertheless, the White House is still the most secure public space in the world, because whether they get tackled on the lawn, arrested at the front door, or stopped at the stairs to the residence, intruders consistently get caught before they reach the president..."

Dark Reading, May 17th 2017

"Almost 30 years after its inception, it's time to fix the engine that both fuels the modern day Internet and is the root cause of its most vexing security challenges," opines Jeff Hussey in Dark Reading.

"It probably seemed like science fiction back in 1962 when a scientist from MIT and the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) named J.C.R. Licklider proposed that the United States develop a 'galactic network' of computers to talk to each other in the event of a military strike from the Soviet Union that could knock out our fragile copper wire-based telephone network..."

21 May 2017 Your IoT Baby Isn't As Beautiful As You Think It Is [63417]
Dark Reading, May 10th 2017

"Both development and evaluation teams have been ignoring security problems in Internet-connected devices for too long. That must stop," opines Andrew Howard in Dark Reading.

"There is a hilarious episode of Seinfeld in which Jerry and Elaine stand over a crib to get a glimpse at their friend's new baby. The little cherub isn't exactly beautiful, and Jerry's reaction to the seemingly ugly baby is priceless.

My reaction to the majority of Internet of Things-enabled products I see when meeting with product managers who think their "baby" is beautiful isn't much different. In almost every case, the baby is indeed very ugly - and by that, I mean horribly insecure. (I even had the same reaction to one product although the product manager was so proud of it that he got a tattoo to commemorate its launch!)..."

14 May 2017 7 Steps To Fight Ransomware [63193]
Dark Reading, May 3rd 2017

"Perpetrators are shifting to more specific targets. This means companies must strengthen their defenses, and these strategies can help," writes G. Mark Hardy in Dark Reading.

"Ransomware can be a highly lucrative system for extracting money from a customer. Victims are faced with an unpleasant choice: either pay the ransom or lose access to the encrypted files forever. Until now, ransomware has appeared to be opportunistic and driven through random phishing campaigns. These campaigns often, but not always, rely on large numbers of emails that are harvested without a singular focus on a company or individual..."

Dark Reading, April 29th 2017

"Don't let a cybersecurity fantasy stop you from building the effective countermeasures you need to protect your organization from attack," writes Mark Wilczek in Dark Reading.

"Cybercrime is all over the place, with damages, according to one estimate by Cybersecurity Ventures, expected to double from $3 trillion in 2015 to $6 trillion by 2021. In a prominent 2016 ransom attack, according to the 2016 McAfee Threat Report, a criminal was supposedly able to pocket $121 million within just six months, netting $94 million after expenses. Still, too often people believe in myths that prevent them from building effective countermeasures. Here are some examples:..."
