Abnormal Security researchers discovered attackers were impersonating the Texas Department of State Health Services to send fake Request for Quotations (RFQs) to vendors in a type of multi-layered email attack.
Threat Intelligence (TI) analysts are one of the key groups of experts in Security Operation Centers (SOCs) and play an important role in making sure IT systems are functioning properly. They are in charge of identifying attack vectors that most threaten the organization, define their company’s defensive strategy and help other team members make informed decisions about potential threats. However, handling such a vast amount of responsibilities, data and managing repetitive tasks is the exact type of work that makes TI employees prone to burnout.
The health, safety and security challenges that business owners and managers have faced in 2020 have made one thing very clear: COVID-19 has acted as a catalyst for a flurry of investments designed to spur the reopening of retail stores, commercial office space and public venues. Such investments don’t need to be singularly focused on opening the doors, but instead can be part of a more sustainable solution that can offer long-term value and flexibility that can be applied to a variety of situations.
This is where smart security cameras connected to the IoT can help.
Day 2 of GSX+ virtual week kicked off with a keynote from Ilham Kadri, CEO and president of the executive committee at Solvay and Werner Cooreman, CPP, SVP and group security director at Solvay, a materials, chemical and solutions company with more than 24,000 employees across more than 60 countries.
Check Point Research unraveled an ongoing surveillance operation by Iranian entities that has been targeting Iranian expats and dissidents for years. While some individual sightings of this attack were previously reported by other researchers and journalists, the investigation allowed Check Point to connect the different campaigns and attribute them to the same attackers.
A skills gap survey from Cybrary of more than 800 security and IT professionals was conducted to shed light on this pressing issue and offer recommendations on how to bridge the ever-growing skills gap.
New York University Tandon School of Engineering and its Master of Science in Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy degree will now encompass practical, first-hand knowledge of secure access service edge (SASE) and zero trust best practices.
With the purpose of enabling safe and resilient communities, the American Red Cross is extending its partnership with BlackBerry. BlackBerry will donate its BlackBerry AtHoc software to the Red Cross to help power its mission to provide emergency assistance, disaster relief and disaster preparedness education to all people in need.
Currently, cryptographic algorithms are based on factorization. RSA and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) algorithms are difficult to solve using traditional binary computers because the computer is forced to work through an incomprehensibly long list of probabilities. A traditional binary computer solves that mathematical problem slowly, whereas a quantum computer with an efficient algorithm can solve that problem much more quickly. Maybe a million times faster!
GSX+ kicked off this morning with a keynote from Juan Manuel Santos, former president of Columbia (2010-2018) and recipient of the Nobel Peace prize for his efforts in bringing Columbia’s 50-year-long civil war to an end.
