Globalsecuritymag.com - Damien Hugoo: Silver Linings to LastPass Hack

Jun 16, 2015 - In general, we are not a fan of password management tools. While they provide convenience, a central repository of any sensitive data is always going to garner greater attention from hackers. In some ways, it might even be better to store this sort of encrypted password data locally on a piece of paper in your office. After all, these sophisticated hackers are more likely to be in China or Russia than they are in the cubicle down the hall from you.

Mar 12, 2015 - Like an iceberg, the vast majority of the Internet is obscured from easy view. This unindexed section of the Internet is dubbed “the Deep Web.” Experts agree that it is impossible to accurately gauge the exact size and scope of the Deep Web, but some dare to put the figure at hundreds of times the size of the visible or “surface” Internet. While most of this content is innocuous, more and more criminal activity is moving away from the light of day and into to the shadowy corners.

Met-security.org - DMARC: The time is right for email authentication

Jan 23, 2015 - It is a rare thing to be given the opportunity to right a historic wrong. The root of essentially every Internet security issue in history is the same—architects try to build fundamentally sound concepts, engineers try to strip out complexity, and developers just try to get their code to compile. Security is and always will be a secondary concern to primary functionality. This is not an editorial about how security should be “baked in”. There is only so much time in the day, so much room in the specification, so much code you can write before you have to ship.
