According to IT Governance USA, Brazil has the world’s seventh largest economy and sixth largest population, with economic acceleration and technical growth second only to China. But while Latin America includes several of the world’s fastest-growing economies and countries and is increasingly adopting new technologies, the portion of organizations without proper security controls remains at an all-time high. According to a study on cybercrime by the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry, phishing alone affects about 2,500 regional banks […]

Think back to the days of grade school. Remember when your teacher was calling on people and you didn’t know the answer, you did what made the most sense, make yourself as small and as unnoticeable as possible so the teacher would not call on you. The notion sounds a bit silly, but this same rule plays out many times over throughout our lives. Keeping a low profile or flying below the radar makes sense in many instances to avoid […]

The debate underway now on encryption and backdoors is nothing new. It’s been a while since the laws in the 1990’s banned shipment of any encryption software with more than 64bit encryption from the U.S. At the time, 128 bit encryption was deemed “hard enough” to crack that its broad usage by adversaries represented a “Threat to National Security”.

I’ve been working in the data-at-rest encryption field for almost three years now. In this short amount of time I’ve seen a real change in the market’s perception and acceptance of encryption. In fact, less than two years ago I was running a marketing and messaging meeting that included some of Vormetric’s sales leaders and they all asked that we play down the word “encryption” in our high-level messaging. They said their prospects’ eyes just glazed over when they heard […]

The RSA Conference (RSAC) is over and while there, I had an opportunity to talk to a number of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) about their challenges, especially their ability (or inability) to address the almost daily deluge of new cyber security risks. I’m sorry to have to report that at no other time in my memory has the gulf between identifying and responding to risk ever been greater.

Earlier this year, European Commission VP Andrus Ansip and commissioner Vera Jourová made a statement regarding the EU’s long-awaited data protection reform, confirming a commitment to pass the new laws by the end of this year. Unfortunately for the organisations that will need to adhere to these rules, there is still little available in terms of definite details. Up until now, some of the key details to be aware of are that companies will likely be expected to respond more quickly, being ready to […]

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve hit a data breach era. Even the federal government has noticed the state of security is a serious problem, as illustrated by the 198 words devoted to cybersecurity in the 6,482 word January State of the Union. Yes, this is considered a milestone.
