Take a Bite Out of Sweyn

If you work in the healthcare industry, you may have heard about a family of vulnerabilities called “SweynTooth.” Researchers from Singapore first discovered the vulnerabilities in 2019. After waiting 90 days to announce them, which is part of the responsible disclosure process, they published a technical paper. If you are not familiar with the S

Lock Down Personal Smart Devices to Improve Enterprise IoT Security

The presence of internet of things (IoT) devices in employee’s homes is a neglected item in many enterprise threat models. Caution is certainly warranted here, but it’s entirely possible to improve your risk awareness and secure smart devices in a calm and measured way. Overlooking privacy and security risks has consequences. It’s in everyo

Crypto-Risk: Your Data Security Blind Spot

For many years — almost since the beginning of secure internet communications — data security professionals have had to face the challenge of using certificates, the mechanism that forms the basis of Transport Layer Security (TLS) communications. Certificates facilitate secure connections to websites (represented by the “s” in “https”

How Retail Security Can Welcome IoT Innovations Without Putting Customers at Risk

Retail businesses, from mom-and-pop shops to major department stores, are investing heavily in technology to enhance the in-store experience. With the imminent arrival of mainstream 5G, smarter systems are expected to dominate the retail space as the internet of things (IoT) expands. But as we know from connected device deployments in other sectors, such as

Safeguarding Healthcare for the Future With Zero Trust Security

In 2019, we saw a record number of information security breaches. According to the IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Index 2020, a total of 8.5 billion records were compromised — three times the number from 2018. The healthcare industry saw its fair share of attacks and was the 10th-most targeted industry, accounting for 3 percent of all attacks last year. Th

In 2020, IoT Security Must Be Part of Your Threat Management Strategy

Internet-enabled devices are emerging more and more in business and personal environments. Often going unnoticed, they simply appear within network infrastructures, using wired or wireless connections and expanding the enterprise attack surface. In fact, enterprises nowadays likely have more internet of things (IoT) devices on their networks than traditiona

Beyond IT: Assessing the Human Impact of Healthcare Cybersecurity

Healthcare cybersecurity attacks are on the rise. As Protenus notes, industry data breaches increased by 48 percent between 2018 and 2019, with more than 41 million patient records compromised. Meanwhile, according to the 2019 HIMSS Cybersecurity Survey, 82 percent of hospitals said they suffered a “significant security incident” in the past 12 m

Modernizing Threat Management for the Evolving Attack Surfaces of OT, IoT and IoMT

The traditional threat landscape comprised of conventional IT assets is difficult enough to protect, detect and respond to, but the landscape seems to be quickly expanding beyond traditional IT. Those new domains are operational technology (OT), the internet of things (IoT) and the internet of medical things (IoMT). Devices from non-traditional IT environmen

Measuring Security Risk in a Medical IoT World

The medical internet of things (IoT) is no longer a futuristic concept. It is here today, and it includes devices you may have never considered a part of the patient care ecosystem, such as elevators, beds, exit signs and clocks. Between those operational technologies and the devices the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has already deemed critical, th

A Road Map for Better Government Cybersecurity From North Dakota

Imagine the impact on the government cybersecurity landscape if the mantra for every U.S. state were something like, “Every student, every school, cyber-educated.” It’s the first I’ve heard about an objective this bold, and it comes from a state that gets little media exposure: North Dakota. The small Great Plains state has establishe

The Past, Present and Future of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

With the release of the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), we feel that it is an appropriate time to reflect on the evolution of SIEM over the years. Starting out as a tool originally designed to assist organizations with compliance, SIEM evolved into an advanced threat detection system, then into an investigati

To Rank or Not to Rank Should Never Be a Question

Let’s face it: Vulnerability management is not what it used to be a decade ago. Actually, it is not what it used to be a couple of years ago. Vulnerability management is one of those ever-evolving processes. Whether it is because of compliance mandates, board demands, an overall desire to reduce risk, all of these objectives or none, almost every organ

Why Threat Actors Are Increasingly Conducting Cyberattacks on Local Government

Cyberattacks on local government in the U.S. have increased dramatically over the last several years. In 2019 alone, ransomware affected more than 100 state and local governments, according to Recorded Future — and that’s just one threat vector. Municipalities are also at risk from insider threats, coordinated attacks and other perils. What is it about

Will Weak Passwords Doom the Internet of Things (IoT)?

Weak passwords can hurt any organization’s security efforts and make any device easily hackable, but could they also be the greatest point of failure for internet of things (IoT) security? Weak passwords certainly put companies deploying IoT devices at greater risk of falling victim to a cyberattack. We have already begun to see attacks targeting IoT d

What Is a DDoS Attack?

After 20 years of prominence, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks may be causing more devastating effects than ever. The first DDoS attack occurred way back on July 22, 1999 when a network of 114 computers infected with a malicious script called Trin00 attacked a computer at the University of Minnesota, according to MIT Technology Review.
