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.
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.

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.

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.

We are pleased to announce that RedSeal has been named the 2017 Homeland Security Awards Gold winner for Best Cyber Operational Risk Intelligence by Government Security News Magazine. Judging in this category is based on a combination of client organization, technological innovation or improvement, filling a recognized government IT security need and flexibility of a solution to meet current and future organizational needs.
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.
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:
Gartner’s Hype Cycle is always a fun read. For the 2017 version, I’d like to draw your attention to the dot for Software-Defined Security — you can find it sliding down the precipitous slope from the Peak of Inflated Expectations to the Trough of Disillusionment.
It’s easy to trace the rise and fall. Back in 2014, there was no Software-Defined-Security marker, but Gartner’s annual chart of hype, hope and hallucination had an entry for Software-Defined Anything (way over on the far left), where dreams turn into … well, more dreams (at least for a while). The intervening years saw Software-Defined Security charge up that first hill of expectations, crest over and eventually slide down.

The world of information security was certainly a whirlwind of activity in 2017. It seemed no one was immune to some sort of security breach or incident and it only got worse through the year. Some of the affected companies involved in incidents are still paying the price for those breaches.
With 2018 coming, the landscape for information security is wide open. We’re lucky enough to have a group of information security experts who are making some predictions for the industry in 2018.
