  • The Practical Guide to HIPAA Privacy and Security Compliance

    by Ben Rothke on January 25, 2015

    From an information security perspective, there is nothing overly onerous with the HIPAA security and privacy requirements. But like all regulations, the devil is in the details. While HIPAA is meant to protect large-scale disclosure of patient data, some of it includes absurd requirements such as ensuring white-boards in hospital wards don’t have full patient information and that intravenous…

  • CISOs Need a Board Coach

    by Rook Security on January 23, 2015

    Boards are concerned about cybersecurity, specifically about how it impacts their reputation and securities (stock). The CISO is capable of assisting the organization in selecting, deploying, and managing the capabilities to address risks identified by the board. What sounds like a perfect match is often not, as many CISOs don't have the business acumen required to be an active participant in…

  • SBN: Running Adobe Flash? You Need to Read This Today

    by Security Bloggers Network on January 23, 2015

The vulnerability, known as CVE-2015-0310, can be used by hackers to “circumvent memory randomization mitigations” on versions of Windows.

  • State of the Union Puts Cybersecurity on National Agenda

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on January 21, 2015

    Buried among the slew of national issues such as equal pay, immigration reform, climate change and Ebola, President Barack Obama spent a few seconds talking about net neutrality and cybersecurity in his State of the Union speech Tuesday evening. While it's nice to see security on the general agenda, it's still too early to know the government's plans. The full paragraph from the State of the Union…

  • InfoSec Needs to Work With Government to Shape New Laws

    by Todd Inskeep on January 21, 2015

    The President’s State of The Union address Tuesday night addressed Information Security for the second time in three years. Two years ago, in 112 words, the President announced the NIST Framework, increased information sharing through executive action, and called for the nation to “face the rapidly growing threat from cyber-attacks.” The threat then was theft of corporate secrets and “real threats…

  • The Sorry State of Cybersecurity Threat Intelligence

    by Gib Sorebo on January 21, 2015

    During the opening montage of every Law and Order episode is the statement (by now probably burned into all our collective consciousness): “In the criminal justice systems there are two separate yet equally important groups, the police who investigate crimes and the district attorney who prosecutes the offenders. These are their stories.” What is typically left out of both the TV show and the real…

  • Blackhat Movie Shows Viewers What Cyber-Attacks Look Like

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on January 19, 2015

    Cybercrime is practically on the news every day—infected computers looting individual bank accounts, distributed denial-of-service attacks, hacked social media accounts, and data breaches. So clearly the time is right for a movie about hacking, right? There are plenty of reviews already for Michael Mann’s latest action thriller Blackhat, so there is no need to repeat what they say here, here, and …

  • Inquiring Minds Want to Know: How Do You Implement Business Security?

    by Christopher Burgess on January 16, 2015

    Business security is not a new concept. Storeowners have alarms, video, and guards to keep the ne'er-do-wells of the world at bay. Corporations that handle money have to worry about embezzlers (does the fact that it is “white-collar crime” mean it is more sanitary as a crime?). And all who handle data must address the business of securing their data. Never Assume The number of data breaches and…
