“Closing the Gaps in Cybersecurity Resilience at U.S. Government Agencies,” a new survey of civilian, defense and intelligence agencies, suggests that the cybersecurity threat landscape is evolving quicker than they can respond.
Two-thirds of federal IT executives say their agency‘s ability to withstand a cyber event, and continue to function, is moderately to highly mature.

Two years ago, a federal government civilian agency had a problem.
Nation state actors were targeting the agency, creating numerous cyber events and breaches every day. The media was all over the story. They faced enormous pressure to change the cybersecurity status quo.
The agency’s cybersecurity team knew that they were in reaction mode. They […]

Cisco has disclosed a critical CVSS 10 vulnerability in ASA that can allow an uncredentialled user to take over the vulnerable device and change access rules. RedSeal has published a custom best practice check for customers to detect vulnerable devices that have the offending service (WebVPN) enabled.
Over the last few decades, many network security architecture products have come to market, all with useful features to help secure networks. If we assume that all of these security products are deployed in operational networks, why do we still see so many leaks and breaches?
Some say the users are not leveraging the full capabilities […]

Recently RedSeal hosted its annual Federal Customer Forum. One of the panels featured a discussion with several luminaries in the federal government cybersecurity ecosystem. The topic: the importance of the integration and automation of cybersecurity operations.
Those present were:

The Uber hack is a public lesson that a breach may be bad, but a cover-up is worse. (See Nixon, Richard.) It was a foolish mistake to try to hide an attack of this scale, but then, the history of security is a process where we all slowly learn from foolish mistakes. We live in […]

This month it is Equifax. Previously it was Yahoo and before that Target. Each new breach seems to set a new record of how many pieces of personal identifiable information have been compromised. It is easy to get inured to these news stories, especially since the media generally does not deduce […]

What is data worth? On the surface, it is just a bunch of 1s and 0s on a hard drive. Most users don’t think about or even fully understand data. Their cell phones work, email is at their fingertips, and a friend is just a video chat away. But, enormous companies are built using […]

I just came across a WSJ Pro article titled “Inside the NSA: Companies Need to Follow the Basics,” and figured I could offer an “amen.” The NSA gets points for seeing things clearly – but then, I suppose that is their job, whether we like it or not! The area they discuss isn’t easy to write […]
