    This is the first in a three-part series on IT security from Forsythe Technology. This post looks at core infrastructure and threat and vulnerability management. Security breaches are inevitable.

  • Cloud Computing Design Patterns

    by Ben Rothke on July 13, 2015

    Far too many technology books take a Hamburger Helper approach, where the first part of the book is about an introduction to the topic with filler at the end with numerous appendices of publicly available information. These books end up being well over 800 pages without a lot of original information, even though they are written an advanced audience. In software engineering, a design pattern is a…

    Any organization that has a sizeable web presence, especially if it involves e-commerce, will inevitably become a victim of some sort of Internet malfeasance. Contrary to popular management belief, knowing how to effectively deal with, respond to, and recover from such incidents is not a trivial endeavor.

  • The Human Element of Computer Security

    by Robert Moskowitz on May 25, 2015

    Most organizations spend significant sums on high-tech defenses such as firewalls, anti-virus software, intrusion detection systems, and biometric locking devices as part of their computer security efforts. But even the strongest hardware and software defenses cannot withstand the human element. The damage can be inflicted intentionally by demotivated employees or unintentionally by…

  • Security By Any Other Name

    by Wendy Nather on May 21, 2015

    If you went up to a pharmacist and said, “Hi, I need something to cure a case of the APTs,” what do you think she would recommend? A big issue with the security industry has to deal with the way we market and describe security technology. It used to be that products were described by functionality, with point features that were well understood: firewall, anti-virus, anti-spam, web filter, log…

    Asia is in the middle of a digital revolution, with a booming market for consumer electronics and a fast-growing startup scene. The explosive growth makes organizations in the Asia-Pacific region especially attractive to criminals and hackers.
