Here, we speak to Chris Wysopal, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder at Veracode about trends in software security and what organizations can do to make developers better at secure coding.
The field of executive protection has been expanding and redefining itself in real-time. Today, executive protection has advanced far beyond securing locations and bodies in the physical realm to also safeguarding online identities and reputations in the digital realm.
Just as you would imagine based on its name, Zero Trust requires authentication of each touchpoint connecting to an organization’s network, aiming to transform it into an impenetrable fortress. Regardless of its benefits, even Zero Trust has its limitations and can create friction unnecessarily, which could have a lasting effect on employee productivity and an overextension of security resources. Are there any alternatives? Is there another remedy that can provide a similar level of security as Zero Trust without the friction? Zero Trust 2.0 is the answer.
We talk to Alan Duric, co-founder and CTO/COO of Wire, a secure collaboration platform, about the various threats facing enterprises today, as well as how organizations can protect their employees and assets, and why organizations (and vendors) need to make a fundamental change to how they operate by implementing better security, technology, and approaches to build a security-first infrastructure.
As we move past an unprecedented year of change, everyone is eager to see what 2021 has in store. For those in the security and surveillance space, of particular interest is how video content analytics might evolve to support emerging use cases. In that vein, Deep Learning and Predictive Analytics are among the key technologies that will continue to benefit video surveillance solutions development and adoption in 2021 - here's why.
In September 2020, a ransomware attack forced 6,000 elementary students to shutdown learning at the Newhall School District. Newhall isn't alone. In addition, Harford Public School, Miami Dade County, Haywood County School district in North Carolina are others that experienced similar circumstances. With ransomware surging nearly 110% and no end in sight for remote learning, the environment is ripe for cyberattacks to escalate. To get some insight, we spoke to Dmitriy Ayrapetov, Vice President of Platform Architecture at SonicWall.
In legal professions, safeguarding documents and paperwork is an essential office task.

In an increasingly digital world, the lock and key of the filing cabinet are no longer enough to guarantee document security. How can your practice better protect the digital files it stores? Take a moment to consider these six tips for implementing better security surrounding these important documents.
One thing that makes hospitals more vulnerable today than in the past is the extraordinary increase in connected medical devices (often known as IoMT or the “Internet of Medical Things”). Network-connected medical devices make healthcare more efficient and enable better patient care. They range from simple blood pressure devices and infusion pumps to more complex machines such as MRIs, CT scanners, and ultrasounds. The obvious problem is that these network connections also make these devices vulnerable to attack.
In 2020, we adapted. So did bad guys. The FBI saw a 400% increase in cyberattacks as adversaries probed the new landscape for vulnerabilities. We haven’t even begun to see the results of these attacks. 2020 blew up expectations, and we should expect more of the same in the coming years.
