    by Security Bloggers Network on November 18, 2013

    If you work outside of the Federal Government space, you likely have not heard of FISMA. For the uninitiated, FISMA is the Federal Information Security Management Act. It was enacted in 2002 as part of the E-Government Act. It was a major impetus in the government regarding the importance of information security.

    by Todd Inskeep on November 12, 2013

    Cyber security has been changing constantly since before I started working at the National Security Agency in what is now the Information Assurance group. And while the underlying pressures, technology, and people have changed over time, the underlying need to protect information, and the principals of confidentiality, integrity and availability have remained the same. We do find ourselves in an…

  • Testing Cloud Services: How to Test SaaS, PaaS & IaaS

    by Ben Rothke on October 29, 2013

    Gartner Fellow and analyst David Mitchell Smith wrote in his report Hype Cycle for Cloud Computing last year - that while clearly maturing and beyond the peak of inflated expectations, cloud computing continues to be one of the most hyped subjects in IT. The report is far from perfect, but it is accurate in the sense that while cloud computing is indeed ready for prime time, the hype with it…

  • Secret History: The Story of Cryptology

    by Ben Rothke on October 16, 2013

    Narrating a compelling and interesting story about cryptography is not an easy endeavor. Many authors have tried and failed miserably; attempting to create better anecdotes about the adventures of Alice and Bob. David Kahn did the best job of it when wrote The Codebreakers: The story of secret writing in 1967 and set the gold standard on the information security narrative. Kahn’s book was so…
