RSA 2017 is a wrap. The final sessions are being recorded, the coat check area is filled with luggage, and the smell of propane is filling the show floors as forklifts begin to deliver packing crates to this year’s crop of security vendors. As expected, the hottest security topics and offerings were related to IoT and the cloud. Threat intelligence and SOCs were also top of mind as companies try to get a handle on the deluge of data and devices flooding their networks. In spite of the veneer of innovation, however, for far too many vendors... [Read More]

If we want to get ahead of cybercrime, we must share information. A collection of companies working together to collect and share intelligence will always have better visibility into the threat landscape than one organization on its own. Seeing new threats as soon as they emerge increases our ability to respond and protect valuable resources. There is a lot of raw data for organizations to use, from both global sources and within their own networks. Unfortunately, most security infrastructures were not designed to effectively consume, correlate,... [Read More]

Adaptive and comprehensive protection against an evolving threat landscape can be a complex discussion. When you add in layers of marketing hype, footnoted claims, and qualified conditions, then it’s not surprising to hear that customers get confused when it comes to choosing security for their business. If what a customer sees after deployment doesn’t measure up to the promises, that creates understandable trust issues and frustration for someone who thought they were buying a proven and reputable solution. Changes to network... [Read More]

Organizations often allow the use of social media on their networks, but RSAC is buzzing about the risks. Does your organization allow employees to access social media at the office? Many do, whether for strictly personal use, communication, collaboration, or marketing. There is a fair body of both anecdotal and research-based evidence that suggests opening up social channels at work keeps employees happier and more productive. Frankly, with the ubiquity of smartphones, employees are using social networks whether your policies prevent it or not. Employer... [Read More]

We’re at RSA again today and it’s not just vendor hype or doomsday fear mongering...Winter is coming. Metaphorically speaking, of course. We’ve been having some fun at RSA with Game of Thrones (yes, that is the Iron Throne in the North Hall of the Moscone Center), but one of the messages that keeps coming through is one that security professionals have been talking about for some time now: Winter is coming. Unfortunately, like the pleas for help and dire warnings that come from the Wall to the seven kingdoms of Westeros, the... [Read More]
