Perfect Cybersecurity Makes No Business Sense

Forbes | September 21, 2017

By Dr. Mike Lloyd, RedSeal CTO

We’re going through a shift in thinking in cybersecurity. In the old days, we thought one solid line of defense was enough — keep the bad guys out and life would be good. Then we found out that bad guys are wily and would find different ways in. The result was security sprawl: so many technologies, so many ways to defend, but no way to do it all, no way to hire enough experts in all these different techniques.

Bipartisan Bill Jump-Starts Badly Needed Security for Internet of Things

ThirdCertainty | September 18, 2017 

Cybersecurity experts applauded the introduction of a new Senate bill in July that would mandate minimum security standards for the growing number of internet-connected devices and sensors used by the federal government.

RedSeal CEO Ray Rothrock contributed a Special Letter to the Strategic News Service Global Report on Technology and the Economy. In it, Ray starts with history of cyber security, from the early days of the World Wide Web in the early 1990s where  cyber was a technical issue managed by engineers and similarly skilled people.

As a result, it takes a strategy of policy, technology, personnel, and investment to do it correctly.

Featuring Dr. Mike Lloyd, RedSeal CTO

Smart cities will either be flexible or secure – they are not at all likely to be both. Why? Cities are sprawling, complex affairs – they change and grow without central control. Indeed, attempts to build centrally planned cities have generally been disastrous. Historically, cities only work when many individuals can all optimise independently for their own goals and objectives, without central control.

How Small Businesses Should Invest in Cyber Security

The Telegraph| August 23, 2017

The deluge of cyber-attack stories in the news is becoming commonplace. Recorded cyber crime cost the UK economy £10.9bn in 2015/16; and unreported crime could cost magnitudes more. For small businesses alone, the average cost per attack is around £3,000.

Fortunately, the level of attention criminals are paying to cyber crime is more than matched by those fighting against them. But for SMEs with limited budgets, securing themselves can be a tricky job.

Cybersecurity’s Ceiling

Dark Reading | August 14, 2017

Security spending and staffing are rising, but restrained resources are tempering market growth.

The IT security market is often painted as a non-stop growth curve with no end in sight. But many analysts who have studied market trends say despite recent increases in spending and hiring, the market paradoxically is being slowed by a shortage of resources.

In some cases, upper management is putting a cap on spending and hiring. In the recently published 2017 Black Hat Attendee Survey, most security professionals say they are increasing hiring and spending. Yet, some 71% of security professionals do not feel they have enough people to handle the threats they will face in the coming year. Fifty-eight percent say they don’t have enough budget.
