While we’ve since learned it was a relatively unsophisticated attack, the Target data breach remains anchored in the headlines and, thanks to the more recent security breach reported at giant grocery chain Morrisons in the UK, we can’t get away from the risk posed to business by the ‘Insider Threat’. Events of the last few months have thrust the dangers of privileged user abuse into the spotlight. However, while these security incidents do vary in terms of scale and impact, […]

Last week, I attended the New York State Cyber Security Conference in Albany, NY. Themed “Helping Navigate Stormy Seas,” the event offered great, practical advice on a wide range of interesting security topics. Three of my personal favorites were Gerry Grealish’s talk on how to secure the cloud without compromise, Kurt Hagerman’s discussion of changes in PCI compliance and the implications in the cloud, and John Petrequin’s presentation on the seven traits possessed by companies that have survived APT attacks and […]

This week the 4th annual Vormetric Customer Council convened in beautiful San Francisco to do some sustained thinking, indeed. Customers from Europe, Asia, and North America came together to discuss the data security issues they face today and must prepare to face in the future. Our customers run the gamut from small health care organizations to large financial institutions and government agencies. And one of the I radiant be xenical no prescription best.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), one of the leading standards-making organisations, suffered the consequences of some sub-par data security practices this week as it emerged that 100,000 member usernames and passwords were found in plain text on a FTP server. A (luckily) well-intentioned researcher demonstrated that, once again, the need for better data protection measures at the server level had failed to be addressed. This incident in particular displayed two significant issues: firstly the IEEE didn’t consider […]

A recent article by Eric Lundquist titled “5 Black Hat Security Lessons For CIOs” of Information Week lays out important security lessons for CIOs. Among the five lessons, one strikes a particular chord – “Understand What you are Protecting.” On the journey towards sensitive data protection, the starting point must be an understanding exactly what comprises sensitive data for your organization. Data is the lifeblood of most, if not all organizations. A threat to the data often constitutes a threat […]

LinkedIn announced this week that almost 6.5 million passwords associated with user accounts had been compromised. The LinkedIn Social Network breach was discovered when the passwords were posted on a Russian forum by the alleged hacker. According to reports, the passwords were hashed using SHA-1, a frequently employed hashing algorithm developed by the NSA. So, how would passwords that are seemingly protected using a secure hashing algorithm be compromised? SHA-1 is typically thought to be a secure algorithm, but best […]

The recent Blue Cross Blue Shield Data Breach highlights an often overlooked risk to data; that of recycled, or unused hardware which is in storage. In the BCBS example, 57 hard drives were stolen from a secure locker at a former call center location. The theft was not believed to have targeted the data but rather was the result of a burglar looking for hardware to steal and resell. Unfortunately for Blue Cross Blue Shield, the result was the same. […]

In the current data security environment, encryption is often touted as the grand cure-all. Simply implement an encryption solution and your data security woes will be behind you. While encryption can be a powerful tool in the data protection arsenal, assisting companies in achieving regulatory compliance as well as offering a high degree of protection to sensitive data, it must be done in a strategic manner. Encryption as it’s been adopted today is more often implemented as a point solution, […]
