Cybersecurity Assessment and the Zero Trust Model

Over the past few years, the concept of "zero trust" architecture has gone through a number of evolutionary phases. It's gone from being the hot new fad, to being trite (in large part due to a deluge of marketing from those looking to cash in on the trend), to pass, and now has ultimately settled into what it probably should have always been all along: a solid, workmanlike security option with discrete, observable advantages and disadvantages that can be folded into our organization's security approach...

Information Security: New Rules

Warren Buffet once said, "Only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked." You can cover over a host of sins when times are good, but bad or unsafe practices will be exposed when times are rough. ...

RSA, COVID-19 and Risk

As I write this, two things are happening simultaneously: The RSA Security Conference is in full swing and so is COVID-19 (coronavirus). It's a strange juxtaposition. There is geographic proximity in that the conference is going on undeterred just a few blocks from where the mayor declared a state of emergency (during the event) due to the ongoing spread of the virus.

If you're like most security pros, chances are pretty good that you're starting to get frustrated with microservices a little bit, or maybe a lot. Microservice architectures -- that is, architectures that leverage REST to build a number of small, distributed, modular components -- are powerful from a software architect's point of view. ...

Tackling Economic Security Governance

If you've ever played chess, you know that each move you make has to be the best move. At one level, this is painfully obvious -- after all, who would choose to make a terrible move instead of a better one? -- but it's illustrative of an important concept. ...

Security Pros: Be on High Alert for Certificate Changes

They say that the key to good security is constant vigilance. As a practical matter, this means that it's important for security and network pros to pay attention to two things: changes in the threat landscape, so they can be on the alert for how their systems might be attacked; and changes and developments in the technologies they employ. ...

5 Effective Talent Retention Strategies for Security Teams

In IT, we've been hearing about the "cybersecurity skills shortage" for a few years. There is no shortage of statistics and data about it: More than 70 percent of participating organizations reported being impacted by the skills shortage, according to the ESG/ISSA research report, "The Life and Times of Cybersecurity Professionals 2018." Likewise, more than half (58 percent) of the organizations surveyed for ISACA's 2019 "State of Cybersecurity" report acknowledged unfilled cybersecurity positions. The majority of those (62 percent) were expected to take three months or longer to fill (of those, 32 percent were expected to take longer than six months to fill). ...

Breaches: Fix the Issue, Not the Blame

Following a natural disaster that causes property damage to businesses and homes -- say a hurricane, fire or flood -- how often do you hear suggestions that the victims were at fault for their misfortune, or that they could have done something to prevent the event from occurring in the first place? Not often, right? We all know that events like that are possible. We plan around those possibilities, and we don't blame the victims when they happen. ...

Preventing ‘Natural’ Cybersecurity Erosion

Every child who's ever played a board game understands that the act of rolling dice yields an unpredictable result. In fact, that's why children's board games use dice in the first place: to ensure a random outcome that is (from a macro point of view, at least) about the same likelihood each time the die is thrown. ...

Cybersecurity Economics: The Missing Ingredient

There are times when looking at something narrowly can be more effective than taking a wider and more comprehensive view.

What Can Chrome 68 Teach Us About Election Security?

If you're a technologist, you've probably noticed (or have been asked about) a few new things associated with Chrome 68's release last month.
