Personal Knowledge or “Qualifying Questions” as Authenticators

May 03, 2010 Added by:Robert Siciliano

How many times have you forgotten a password? Fortunately the website you were on only needed your username or an email address and they would respond with a few questions for you to answer. Once you responded with what was in the system you then re-set your password and you’re in.  Easy peazy.

Would you like to meet an Identity Thief?

May 03, 2010 Added by:Bruno Pavlicek

Much has been written on the topic of Identity Theft. But what do we really know about the identity thieves themselves. Who are they? How do they operate? What motivates them? To begin with, one needs to appreciate that America is plagued with an endless epidemic of identity theft.

Is it really important to have a structured security budget? (part2)

April 30, 2010 Added by:Dario Forte

Company problems cannot be resolved with software. Another factor that I have noticed in my recent work as security advisor is the divergence between the enthusiasm of providers for the growth in security budgets, as reported in the surveys of recent years, and reality. It is probable that more is invested in security hardware and software, but this does not necessarily mean increasing security...

Should we be afraid of Chinese hackers? ...Or lost cyber war

The information age gave us not only sophisticated computer equipment, software, and gadgets but also something that many of u...

Chisco: Welcome To The Hunan Network?

April 23, 2010 Added by:shawn merdinger

On NPR's 'Fresh Air' this week, Richard Clarke made some great points, in particular with the logic bomb scenarios of sneaking in code and untrustworthy hardware. While this is old news, it's still a very real threat -- recall that Chisco devices were discovered on US government networks and disclosed back in 2008.

Cold War Holds Lessons for Cyber Strategy

April 21, 2010 Added by:Richard Stiennon

Perhaps in response to rather vocal criticism of his frantic warnings about cyberwar, Mike McConnell, retired Navy Admiral and  one time Director of National Intelligence, published a position piece in The Washington Post. 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.
