December 15, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

Did the title of this post get your attention? We are doomed! The sky is falling! All of your computers are infected! We are just one security breach away from complete human extinction!

The Threat Is Real and Must Be Stopped: Clarifications And Rebuttal by an INFOSEC Professional DRAFT II

October 22, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

So far though Senator Lieberman I have only seen gross generalities out of you and others about how dire things are and how scared we all should be. Your hue and cry ultimately lacks any hard evidence for any of us to stand behind as that the issue is real and it is so prescient that action must be taken post haste...

Cyberwar, Cyberdouchery, and Where the Rubber Meets the CyberRoad

October 01, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

The cyberwar is upon us and we had best start taking it seriously because people in power are making plans, and like biological warfare, it seems perhaps there could be unforeseen circumstances that could trigger bigger and worse things. Plan accordingly and think a bit more cogently...

Ask the Experts: Management and Rational Decisions About Security

September 22, 2012 Added by:Brent Huston

Emphasize that there are security measures that are effective in zero day situations. These include such controls as anomaly based detection mechanisms, system user security training, and incident response programs. If you can detect these attacks early and respond to them correctly...

Death Match: Peter the Great Versus Sun Tzu

September 21, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

The paper, “Peter the Great Versus Sun Tzu” alleges that a comparison can be made between the varying actors in malware creation. They have broken this down into a battle royal between the “Asians” and the “Eastern Europeans” which is just patently stupid...

Security and the Enterprise: Connect What?

September 20, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

We’re going to use the phrase “Connecting security to the business” with almost annoying frequency because it can change the way the business views security, and vice versa. This begs a primer of sorts: What do we mean by all this “connecting security to the business” talk?

Top Hats For Everyone!

September 11, 2012 Added by:Jim Palazzolo

If you give public attention to your adversary, the stronger they get. We keep using terms like “Hacker” and “Black Hat”. I understand the need to classify the behavior. However, are we inadvertently giving individuals too much inherited power by recognizing them in context and connotation?

On Secploitation...

August 14, 2012 Added by:Javvad Malik

To honour the new found love-affair the media has with security, I predict Hollywood will jump on the Secploitation bandwagon, so I’ve done the hard work and come up with some sample titles. If you’re a producer or director and need scripts, get your people to give my people a call. We can work something out...

State Sponsored Malware Takes Over Mars Rover

August 10, 2012 Added by:J. Oquendo

Many companies will omit many details and shift-slash-skew agendas to meet their concerns. Those concerns will ALWAYS be financial ones. At this point it is obvious that they and only they are capable of detecting the unseen, unheard of, undetectable, uberfilthware capable of infecting curiousity on Mars...

Huawei and Cyber Espionage: A Question of Trust But Verify

August 06, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

We, the US, have unfortunately set ourselves up in a “pay less” mindset that has ha the military buying cheap hardware for missile systems that in the end, failed to launch. Do you want to have the same happen to your router or other hardware that your company relies on? Never mind the whole espionage thing...

Chimps With Guns and the Bloggers Who Give Them Ammo

August 02, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

One must know the technology and the problems with it before using it cognizantly. This unfortunately is not the case in what is being advocated by Quinn Norton on Wired with regard to Cryptocat. Specifically where she makes declamations about overthrowing governments with things like untested crypto schemes...

Blackhat, BSidesLV and DefCon Oh My... 2012 Edition

August 01, 2012 Added by:Boris Sverdlik

The upside for being in Vegas for BlackHat is that BSidesLV runs concurrently. BSides always tend to be much better events. The attendees are rarely the vendor mouthpiece types and this alone makes the conference enjoyable. I had attended more talks at BSides than I have at other conferences combined this year....

Don’t Freak Out, It was Only DefCon

July 31, 2012 Added by:Brent Huston

Disregard tales of drunken hackers menacing Vegas hotels, changing signs and doing social engineering attacks. They are good for amusement and awareness, but they are NOT really useful as a lens for viewing your organization’s risk or the steps you should be taking to protect your data. Instead, stick to the basics...

BYOD is a Bunch of FUD

July 16, 2012 Added by:Marc Quibell

Times have changed , and I'm not talking about the technologies involved. I'm talking about the rules and regulations we have to follow, and the best practices we as employees must abide by - as opposed to the days of the old briefcase - when it comes to protecting the data with which we are entrusted...

Advanced Persistent Threats: Separating the Unicorns from Reality

July 14, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

APT - Advanced Persistent Threat has been the nervous topic for a long time now in Information Security. While there is a metric ton of misinformation and confusion about what constitutes an Advanced Persistent Threat, the thrust seems to be that once you're a target, you're a victim...
