The recent release of the Firesheep Wi-Fi attack tool has increased awareness among both users and attackers of the inherent insecurity of unprotected HTTP connections. Users on unprotected networks who connect to websites through plain HTTP connections expose their connections to those sites to open surveillance and full compromise.

Advances in attacks on network security over the last few years have led to many high-profile compromises of enterprise networks and breaches of data security. A new attack is threatening to expand the potential for attackers to compromise enterprise servers and the critical data on them. Solutions are available, and they will require action by company officers and administrators. “SSLStrip” and related attacks were among the highlights of the July 2009 Black Hat show in Las Vegas. Researcher Moxie Marlinspike combined a number of discrete problems, not all related to SSL, to create a credible scenario in which users attempting to work with secure websites were instead sent to malicious fake sites.

Over the past decade, businesses have had to adapt to an array of technical changes, including an increasingly hostile cyber environment. We saw the early precursors of cybercrime decades ago when computer use was limited to a relatively small group of specialists and electronics enthusiasts. Innovative programmers, some still in high school, would find ways to display annoying messages on their friends’ computers and from there spread to other devices via shared floppy disks.This kind of part practical joke-part vandalism form of malware has been overshadowed by the more serious, technically complex, and financially lucrative form of today’s cybercrime. In this guide, we will examine major types of threats to information security that businesses face today as well as techniques for mitigating those threats. One of the most important tools available to us is SSL technology.

Businesses face an increasingly complex set of threats to their Web applications—from malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) to disgruntled employees and unintentional data leaks. Although there is no single security measure than can prevent all threats, there are some that provide broad-based mitigation to a number of threats. The use of SSL encryption and digital certificate-based authentication is one of them. Changes in the way we deliver services, the increasing use of mobile devices, and the adoption of cloud computing compounded by the ever-evolving means of stealing information and compromising services leave Web applications vulnerable to attack. In this chapter, we turn our attention to the combined risk of losing data and losing customer trust.

We often think of malware as being designed to sit beneath the radar, collecting data in stealth mode, for the purposes of fraud or corporate espionage. Increasingly however, we’re witnessing attacks on corporations designed to cause substantial economic losses via wholesale destruction. For example, the Shamoon malware that recently hit Saudi Arabia-based Aramco (the world’s largest oil company) and RasGas (a Qatar-based gas company) corrupted files on tens of thousands of workstations, overwriting the Master Boot Records. These malware attacks, which may well have targeted website vulnerabilities, resulted in destruction on an industrial scale. At Aramco, IT professionals were forced to replace 30,000 PCs and laptops. RasGas meanwhile, had to shut down all email communications, and the company’s website was forced offline.

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a foundational cyber security technology. However, a properly executed SIEM strategy is difficult to execute even in static network environments with limited assets, much less for companies that have heterogeneous networks, transient end users, and plans of expansion. In this analyst report from Frost & Sullivan, you’ll read about several factors that companies big and small need to consider when purchasing and deploying a SIEM. You’ll also learn about AlienVault’s unified approach to solving for these challenges, with its on-prem appliance (USM Appliance™), and cloud-based SIEM-as-service, (USM Anywhere™). Download this report now to learn more about the changing SIEM market and AlienVault’s unified approach to security information and event management.

Join this dynamic LinkedIn group to be part of the cyber-security education conversation to gain an understanding for the best practices to improve security. Learn why HP says 64% of IT managers believe their printers are infected with malware, but only 45% of those IT professionals consider printers to be a medium or high risk vulnerability. The first responsibility of IT professionals is to make sure their company’s information is secure and today any device can become an access point threat. Printers and MFPs can be the Achilles’ Heel of any cyber-security plan and are a goldmine for hackers looking to steal pertinent information. Join the conversation and learn what’s necessary to protect your company.

When the U.S. Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, among the law's many provisions was the establishment of formal regulations designed to protect the confidentiality and security of patient information. In addition to mandating new policies and procedures, the HIPAA security regulations require mechanisms for controlling access to patient data on healthcare providers' information technology (IT) systems.

Whether we like it or not we are all IT users now. Through the ubiquity of networks of devices that we rely on for information, security and day-to-day transactions even those who eschew technology now rely on it, even if they do not acknowledge it. The failure of these networks can lead to widespread disruption, unhappy customers, unproductive employees and lost business. Ensuring their availability, security and efficiency is a job for experts who need powerful tools to carry out the task.

The realities of security and compliance have changed considerably since patch management faced its first big paradigm shift some years ago. At that time many organizations wrestled with the transition from manual patching and remediation to an automated process. Of course, nothing in security is ever static, so it is no surprise that patch management has continued to evolve since then. Though still automated, today’s best patch management tools and techniques are significantly different from their predecessors. In this whitepaper, Lumension Security’s Matt Mosher, Senior Vice President of the Americas, gives an historical perspective on how this evolution unfolded and why it is important for organizations to evolve their patch management technology in order to remain on top of increasing security attacks.

This paper details the processes by which ProofMark tags electronic records with a self-validating cryptographic seal that acts as a "tamper indicator" based on a true and provable time-reference datum.  With this it is able to provide instantaneous and irrefutable proof of authenticity, no matter where the data resides or who has controlled it.
