  • Phishing Dark Waters: The Offensive and Defensive Sides of Malicious Emails

    by Ben Rothke on April 29, 2015

    All encryption (with the exception of a one-time pad) can be broken. Bruce Schneier likes to use the analogy of a pole in the ground for encryption. You can try to break the pole (encryption); or simply go around the pole. Rather than finding problems with a proven encryption algorithm, attackers will try to go around it via how it’s implemented, and other similar attacks. In Phishing Dark Waters:…

  • Is Defense in Depth Dead? Part 2: The Lesson of Babylon

    by Danelle Au on April 28, 2015

    A few weeks ago, when I asked, Is Defense in Depth Dead? I used the example of Dover Castle to illustrate the point that, as weapons and warfare change, defensive strategies must also evolve to meet new realities.

  • Learning About New Attack Techniques at RSAC 2015

    by Tony Kontzer on April 22, 2015

    A funny thing happened on my way to a session at the RSA Conference Tuesday. Long before I got there, and as I was checking messages on my phone, I nearly walked right into the back of a line. But for what? There were hundreds of people standing in line in the concourse, and hundreds of others rifling through their conference guides trying to figure out what all of the hubbub was. I smelled a…

  • RSA's Amit Yoran: Security is Stumbling Around in the Dark

    by Tony Kontzer on April 21, 2015

    Amit Yoran clearly knows a good metaphor when he sees one. Or in this case, doesn’t see one. Yoran, who was named RSA's president last fall, took the stage at the RSA Conference in San Francisco Tuesday to deliver his first opening keynote. In the dark. And he let the audience of thousands sit there, in the pitch black, for an excruciatingly long moment before offering the first glimpses of what…

  • Homeland Security Chief Talks Cybersecurity Mission at RSAC 2015

    by Tony Kontzer on April 21, 2015

    Jeh Johnson knows all too well how important security is. As the secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Johnson not only is responsible for protecting the nation from terrorists, he's also accompanied by a secret service detail everywhere he goes. There was a time when that kind of physical security was enough, but the world has changed. During a keynote at the RSA Conference in…
