  • Cybercrime and Threats Are Growing in 2016

    by RSAC Contributor on January 21, 2016

    This post in our VC-series comes from Alberto Yépez and Don Dixon, managing directors of Trident Capital Cybersecurity. It’s a new year, and we are poised again for another round of malicious, often successful cyberattacks, many of which will draw upon ever more sophisticated technology.

  • Encryption Rules Only Apply to Those Who Follow Them

    by Tony Bradley on January 18, 2016

    The world can be a dangerous place, and nations around the world must be vigilant to identify and prevent attacks from would-be terrorists. In the wake of recent terrorist attacks in Paris and in San Bernardino, Calif., there has been increased debate over the need for intelligence agencies to have some sort of back-door access to enable monitoring of encrypted data and communications. It’s an…

  • Your Security Resolutions for 2016

    by Wendy Nather on January 14, 2016

    We start the New Year with the best of intentions. We're going to join an ISAC and work out every day; consume only healthy and organic data; clean out our overstuffed Hadoop clusters and get rid of that out-of-fashion data; and measure our performance to match our goals. Oh yes, and we're going to stay within the security budget. But making lifestyle changes is hard, especially in security, where …

    What is going to shape the cybersecurity landscape of the future? According to Peter W.

  • Today’s ‘Unbreakable’ Encryption Is Tomorrow’s Security Weakness

    by Tony Bradley on January 8, 2016

    We hear a lot about encryption as a magic silver bullet solution that will secure and protect our data. Businesses and consumers are directed to employ encryption wherever possible, and in the wake of any data breach one of the first questions that comes up—often from encryption vendors with a marketing agenda—is whether the compromised data was protected with encryption. Encryption evolves over…

  • Encryption Made Simple for Lawyers

    by Ben Rothke on January 6, 2016

    The good thing about encryption is that it can make your data virtually impossible to be read by anyone except those you allow. The bad thing about encryption is that it’s relatively easy to do wrong. And in many cases, people have made configuration errors such that they have locked themselves out of their own data. In Encryption Made Simple for Lawyers (American Bar Association - 978-16342505…

  • A ‘Golden Key’ to Unlock Encryption Is the Wrong Approach

    by RSAC Contributor on December 22, 2015

    This post in our VC-series comes from Robert R. Ackerman, Jr., the founder and managing director of Allegis Capital. It seems like an appealing strategy—give the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, as well as our spy organizations, a back door— a “golden key”—to unveil encrypted communications to help catch criminals and terrorists and protect Americans from harm. This is particularly…

  • INAMOIBW and Other Trends from the 2016 RSA Conference Submission Review Process

The curation process is very deliberate with industry experts reviewing each and every submission, debating the…

  • The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

    by Ben Rothke on August 19, 2015

    It’s not clear who first uttered the quip: Of course I can keep a secret. It's the people I tell it to that can't. But what’s clear is that there are plenty of times when it’s a matter of life and death to ensure that secrets remain undisclosed. In The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography, author Simon Singh reveals the often hush-hush world of the science of…
