Advice for Entrepreneurial Engineers

ASME | Feb 22, 2018

By Ray Rothrock, RedSeal CEO

Entrepreneurs are everywhere today—from Silicon Valley to incubators and tech hubs around the world. While many startups are in tech, others involve engineers who use digital tools and 3-D printing to invent new products or reinvent existing ones. So, what should potential entrepreneurs consider before leaping? I don’t have a definitive answer, but after 25 years of funding startups, more than 40 successful investments, and eight initial public offerings, I see some patterns that work.

Cybersecurity is Complicated, but is AI the Answer?

Computer Business Review | Feb 21, 2018

By Dr. Mike Lloyd, RedSeal CTO

The cybersecurity industry today is increasingly dominated by artificial intelligence (AI) — or at least, by bold claims of what AI could achieve.

Marketers, analysts and journalists are all queuing up to wax lyrical, while some estimates claim that as many as 30% of large organisations are already using it in their IT departments. IT professionals are even voicing concerns that it’s only a matter of time before the black hats get hold of it. But is it genuinely the saviour of cybersecurity?

Why Cybersecurity Should Be Taught at Business Schools

TechRepublic | Feb 5, 2018

The cybersecurity skills gap might be one of the best ways for a company to become more cyber secure. Often we look at technological solutions but training and education of workers, of employees, remains one of the most effective tactics. RedSeal CEO Ray Rothrock joins TechRepublic Senior Writer Dan Patterson for a conversation about teaching nuanced cyber defense, business strategy, and teaching leadership how to keep up with the fast shifts in security.

Insurance or Assurance

We all must have heard about the Love bug virus— a cute little love letter, back in 2000, that landed in the inboxes of millions of people and destroyed data with a self-replicating computer worm. Little could be done to meet the aftermath. Well, it was way back in 2000—two decades back when threat awareness or the awareness to cope with it was limited. Earlier, technology companies bought errors and omissions (E&O) insurance that later begin to include coverages for software product creating downtimes, unauthorized access to a client system, data demolition, or a trojan.

Defense Department’s Secret Weapon for Network Security

Nextgov | Jan 30, 2018

I have something potentially wildly unpopular to suggest: If you work for or run an organization that deals with human beings and the data that goes with them, and if you are concerned about the security of that data, look to the Defense Department for a solution.

The federal government, which has suffered some high-profile breaches recently, is notably tight-lipped about its cybersecurity strategies, but Defense has been instructive on the topic. The department operates in an environment in which cyberattacks are a persistent threat and as a result, its approach is very different from civilian agencies and many private-sector businesses—and far more successful.

IoT: Why It Is Vulnerable

The Internet of Things – the connecting of billions of everyday and industrial devices using tiny sensors that transmit data and share information in the cloud – is revolutionising the way we live and do business.

IoT platforms are expected to save money, improve decision-making, increase staff productivity, provide better visibility into the organization and improve the customer experience. All this potential comes with some big security risks – mainly with the unsecured devices themselves, but also with their ability to join forces to bring down systems. This can leave corporate networks vulnerable.

Seven Important Steps Law Enforcement And Government Agencies Can Take To Combat Hackers

Forbes | Jan 10, 2018

It’s been a tough year for cyberattacks. As if WannaCry and NotPetya weren’t damaging enough, a strain called BadRabbit infected hundreds of computers in October in an “apparent aftershock” of NotPetya. Although the victims of BadRabbit have been concentrated in Europe, the global community is now more aware and anxious than ever about widespread ransomware attacks. But whose responsibility is it to prevent — or at least minimize — the damage done by malicious hackers?

Some believe that law enforcement and government agencies should take the wheel when it comes to cybersecurity education and best practices. Here’s what members of Forbes Technology Council had to say.

How 3 Innovative Products Approach Network Security

CSO | Jan 2, 2018

A few years ago, almost all enterprise cyber security products were centered within the network security category. Protecting the backend servers that ran organizations was everything. Even today, with an increased focus on cloud, virtualization and enterprise-level endpoint security, protecting the core network is still a primary concern for most organizations.

Here’s a look at how some of the most innovative network security products keep users, assets and data safe within their home networks.

Top Cyber Security Predictions for 2018

IT World Canada | Jan 2, 2018

A new year always brings predictions. When it comes to cyber security, the over-arching prediction from experts is that threats will only get more complex. That means the security team will have to be even sharper than they were in 2017.

Here’s a roundup of what a number of cyber security solution providers see for the next 12 months:
