Privacy is becoming an increasingly important issue in many data mining applications that deal with health care, security, finance, behavior and other types of sensitive data. Is particularly becoming important in counterterrorism and homeland security-related applications. The authors touch upon several techniques of masking the data, namely random distortion, including the uniform and Gaussian noise, applied to the data in order to protect it. These perturbation schemes are equivalent to additive perturbation after the logarithmic transformation. Due to the large volume of research in deriving private information from the additive noise perturbed data, the security of these perturbation schemes is questionable.

Security Compass Releases New Developer-Centric Threat Modeling Capabilities in SD Elements in Support of New Secure Software Development Guidelines

Security Compass | October 19, 2022

Security Compass, a leading cybersecurity solution provider, today announced the release of SD Elements 2022.3, which offers new capabilities that make it easier for software developers to identify software application security threats and exactly where to implement countermeasures to mitigate the risks. The latest version of SD Elements also includes new security content that allows software development organizations to demonstrate compliance with the latest threat modeling and secure development best practices from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) referenced in Executive Order (EO) 14028, “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity.” The new SD Elements capabilities help organizations comply with the latest NIST software threat modeling and secure development standards, even when security knowledge and availability of security experts is limited. Other benefits include improved collaboration among security, software development, hardware engineering, and DevOps teams, and reduced time and costs associated with software threat modeling and demonstrating compliance with multiple security standards and regulations such as EO 14028 as well as with more than 80 other secure development industry regulations and guidelines. Key updates to SD Elements 2022.3 include: Developer-centric threat modeling diagram enhancements: Surfacing threats is important, but knowing where threats are and how to prioritize and mitigate them is even more important. New threat modeling diagram enhancements help software development and application security teams better understand where the threat exists, which threats to prioritize for remediation first, and exactly where countermeasures should be applied. New customizable dashboards in Advanced Reporting: New dashboards enable application security teams to identify the most prevalent threats and weaknesses across the organization’s software portfolio, as well as perform in-depth analyses of their software security and compliance posture on both a per-project basis, as well as across their entire software portfolio. New security content: New security content helps organizations meet U.S. federal government security requirements in accordance with Executive Order (EO) 14028, “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity;” new Ansible infrastructure as code (IaC) and automotive supply chain (UNECE WP.29 / R155) security content helps ensure software development teams have the guidance they need to ensure the code they write complies with secure development best practices. New integrations: The extensive SD Elements integration ecosystem now includes a new integration for Micro Focus Fortify on Demand. New just-in-time training content: 34 new Terraform Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and Payment Card Industry (PCI) Software Security Framework (SSF) just-in-time training micro-modules have been added to the existing library of over 800 just-in-time training micromodules already included in SD Elements. New developer-centric eLearning courses: New eLearning courses for Terraform, PCI SSF, the OWASP top 10, and OAuth Security Fundamentals have been added to the existing library of more than 40 Security Compass eLearning courses focused on application security, operational security, compliance, and secure coding best practices. “The importance of software threat modeling continues to grow. “NIST now recommends that software developers follow secure software development best practices and perform software threat modeling multiple times during development, especially when developing new capabilities. All companies that sell (or want to sell) software to the U.S. federal government, whether directly or through resellers or other channels, must comply with EO 14028 by September 15, 2023, and should therefore quickly begin assessing their compliance with the latest NIST guidance and develop action plans to address any gaps.” Trevor Young, Chief Product Officer, Security Compass For more details about the latest capabilities in SD Elements, click here, or register to attend the upcoming webinar, “How to Speed Up Software Threat Modeling, Threat Remediation, and NIST Software Supply Chain Security Compliance” on Nov. 16, 2022 at 1:00pm ET.
