Increasingly complex and sophisticated cyber-attacks are evading
traditional defenses, forcing firms to seek solutions beyond traditional
threat blocking and prevention mechanisms. Threat actors have had
success with phishing, zero-day malware/exploits, and fileless attacks and

speed and accuracy.
Organizations may believe in the critical importance of
speed but be unsure of how that translates into metrics.
Amazon's Ring is mandating the use of two-factor authentication for all users, a move designed to help stop creepy takeovers of the web-connected home security cameras. A passcode will be sent to a user's email address or by SMS.
Are you attending the RSA 2020 conference? To help navigate the show, here's a preview of 12 top keynote sessions featuring some of the biggest names in cybersecurity tackling critical subjects, including cryptography, critical infrastructure security, bug bounties and supply chain risks.
Cyberattacks leverage faster tools and exploit known weaknesses to get around even the strongest of passwords. Pairing them with additional technology and authentication factors is essential. But what to protect, and what variation of multifactor authentication will thwart threats best, depends on your...
Containers are becoming more popular, but how do you deal with the security challenges of using containers?

Containers are shaping the way organizations are developing and managing applications nowadays. However, many are not always fully aware of the measures that need to be taken across the entire software development lifecycle, especially when it comes to open source security aspects. The mindset of securing our...
DevSecOps is often associated with securing a development pipeline in traditional CI/CD frameworks. Join this session, held by Henrik Johansson, Principal - Office of the CISO at AWS, as he discusses and shows:
How public cloud technology enables you to fully embrace security automation in your infrastructure
The U.S. Justice Department has filed new charges against Huawei and several of its subsidiaries, plus its CFO, accusing them of engaging in a conspiracy to steal trade secrets from American companies.
Information Security Media Group, a premier media partner at the annual RSA Conference, will conduct over 200 video interviews at this year's event with cybersecurity thought leaders, executives, CISOs and sponsors.
As the U.S. ramps up pressure on its allies to ban equipment from Chinese manufacturer Huawei from their 5G networks, U.S. officials now say they have evidence that the firm has created a backdoor that allows it to access mobile phone networks around the world, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Ransomware brings a business to a screeching halt every 11 seconds, making it the most pervasive and destructive malware threat out there.
