Risk Mitigation through Collaborative Innovation

April 26, 2010 Added by:Steven Fox, CISSP, QSA

Did you innovate today? Let’s say that you did! Good job! Did you get the idea from a podcast or webinar? Maybe. Odds are that you got wind of an interesting idea when you sat with a different team during lunch. Perhaps you attended a presentation by the business analysis group after the cancellation of an audit meeting. In either case, a synergy occured between new and acquired knowledge &n...

Is it really important to have a structured security budget? (part1)

April 22, 2010 Added by:Dario Forte

At the time this post is being written, the dynamics of management's understanding of security issues and the valorization of security investments remain somewhat nebulous. Until this concept is fully interpreted and explored, this valorization is assigned to those in the company who deal with information security. And if they are lucky, they are given a reasonable budget to administrate.

Cold War Holds Lessons for Cyber Strategy

April 21, 2010 Added by:Richard Stiennon

He draws on the Cold War to support his thesis that the US must do more to counter cyber threats.  Here is my take on his comments.

FaaS: Fraud as a Service

April 14, 2010 Added by:Mike Meikle

In working with various clients on the topic of security, a common theme has emerged. Management and employees still labor under the perception that fraud is still the purview of unorganized individuals with an axe to grind against a specific company.

eBay: a hacker's source for acquiring remote monitoring medical devices for security testing?

April 13, 2010 Added by:shawn merdinger

April 10, 2010 Added by:Steven Fox, CISSP, QSA

The SOW just came through on a new client.  You do some research and find that they just cut their staff by 20% – and you are the lucky security professional that gets to do their PCI compliance review!  You file this in the back of your mind as an environmental factor and proceed to prepare for the engagement.  After all, what matters here is the review, right?
