Your Security Has Been Compromised/by RedSeal
On an autumn day in 2008 while I was an active, practicing journalist, I sat in my office and interviewed Todd Davis, CEO of LifeLock for my article on scanning the underbelly of the web. Todd is perhaps best known for appearing in ubiquitous advertising and broadcasting his Social Security Number. At the time, it […]
Driving Blindfolded/by Dr. Mike Lloyd, CTO, RedSeal
I recently wrote about the necessity of getting the right data for security analytics. But I’m continuously reminded how typical organizations lack an even roughly complete understanding of their network, or even a map of it. I can understand why this happens – entropy is just as inevitable for organizations as it is in Physics. […]
Inside the Mind of an Attacker — Part 2/by RedSeal
Recently, on a rainy Colorado afternoon, I sat down at my kitchen table to decide how I was going to upgrade our home security system. Just as anyone who has gone through this process would do, I walked around the house and looked at all of the possible ways an intruder could attempt to enter. […]
Data, Data Everywhere, nor Any Time to Think/by Dr. Mike Lloyd, CTO, RedSeal
I remember when I first started trying to solve network security problems, using fancy network analytics. I applied the classic suspension of disbelief that’s necessary to work on any emerging technology – first, you assume all the hard problems will be easy, and second, you assume the impossible ones will just go away. Happily, much […]
Inside the mind of an attacker/by RedSeal
This morning, I woke up, walked downstairs, and performed my morning rituals, including a review of OmniFocus on my iPad to see what was on tap for today. I looked at my list of projects, my next actions, and those items that are due in the next few days. Then, I went to work.
Negative Unemployment/by Dr. Mike Lloyd, CTO, RedSeal
I recently attended a gathering of Wall St CISOs, one of whom referred to the “negative unemployment” in our industry. I thought this was a great phrase, and I’ve found it’s a quick way to get across some quite deep points about current security.
At first, it just sounds cute, but in practice, it’s about […]
Defending Against Botnets/by RedSeal
Botnets have been around for many years, but Distil Networks’ recently-released research shows that their use not only continues to grow dramatically, but that use is becoming more sophisticated. In having the bots focus their attacks during off-hours, the attackers may have a greater window of opportunity for damage before discovery.
This underscores the need […]
