COVID-19 has exacerbated preexisting cyberthreats, from counter incident response and island hopping to lateral movement and destructive attacks. These attacks are ratcheting up existing geopolitical tensions.
Organizations, most of which depend on VPNs and other traditional network security infrastructure, may not...
A hacking group targeting Iranian dissidents has developed malware that can bypass two-factor authentication protection on Android devices to steal passwords, according to Check Point Research. The hackers have also targeted victims' Telegram accounts.
Implementing an adaptive, risk-based authentication process for remote system access is proving effective as more staff members work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, says Ant Allan, a vice president and analyst at Gartner.
Britain's failure to contain COVID-19 - despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson promising a "world-beating" effort - now includes a failed digital contact-tracing app. A new version, built to work with Apple and Google APIs, may be released by winter. Really, what's the rush?
8 Steps to Shore Up Your Defense Against Cyberattack
In the past, it was easy to take mainframe security for granted. The mainframe was locked down behind closed doors, and even if you were able to get into the room, you'd still needed the coding experience to hack it.
Today, the mainframe is closer to the internet...
To successfully combat today's varied and sophisticated threats, a proactive approach is needed. EPP's essentially reactive approach to computer security is, to use the old canard, necessary but insufficient. While it' s essential to take an AV-based preventive approach to eliminate as many threats as possible before...
Endpoints remain the most vulnerable attack vector and today's threat actors are more tenacious than ever. Now, it's generally not a matter of "if" you'll be compromised, but "when." The "when" more often includes threats that are personalized, new, and complex. The security that traditionally relies on signatures or...
"Zero Trust" security is rapidly transitioning from a marketing buzzword to a practical methodology for protecting today's global networks. Stan Lowe, global CISO of Zscaler, shares his 2020 vision for zero trust.
Delayed enforcement of the "strong customer authentication" requirements for online transactions under the European Union's PSD2 regulation is hampering efforts to enhance security. That's why the European Banking Authority should act quickly to develop a new timeline.
Currently, nearly ninety percent of organizations worldwide are using
Active Directory (AD) for on-premises
resources (aka on-prem). That
represents 500 million organizations
and somewhere around 10 billion daily
authentications. In fact, in the world
of identity and access management
(IAM), AD has become...
Email is still the #1 attack vector the bad guys use. A whopping 91% of cyberattacks start with a phishing email, but email hacking is much more than phishing and launching malware!
