Cyber Threats to the Bioengineering Supply Chain

January 25, 2019

The Bioengineering supply chain begins with the acquisition of either a physical genetic sample or an existing data record, which could be downloaded from a repository such as the National Center for Biotechnology Information Genbank FTP website. This data is sequenced, stored, analyzed and disseminated on various platforms to include Local Area Networks and cloud services (2018, Bajema). Universities, pharmaceutical companies, the genomic sequencing industry and genetic testing companies rely on the availability of this data. While machines are programmed with binary code to include 0s and 1s, in biology, genetic code relies on As (adenine), Cs (cytosine), Gs (guanine) and Ts (thymine). Data stored in either form may be vulnerable to theft, sabotage or manipulation by adversaries.

Guide to Cloud Security Posture Management Tools

whitePaper | June 16, 2023

Good cloud security hygiene starts with complete visibility into the security and compliance posture of every resource you deploy into your cloud. It’s one thing to achieve this visibility in a single cloud environment—you can lean heavily on the native monitoring and auditing tools of your cloud provider, using third-party solutions to fill in gaps (e.g., threat detection)—but in a multi-cloud architecture, maintaining robust cloud security posture becomes exponentially more complex. It is much more difficult to achieve centralized visibility as well as consistently enforce policies and compliance rules within a multi-cloud environment. It’s also more complicated to detect threats and fix vulnerabilities quickly due to the sheer complexity of threats across distributed, multilayered architectures. You can address these challenges, though—and you need to, if you want to take advantage of multi-cloud architecture without compromising on security.

Leading Cybersecurity in Higher Education

whitePaper | February 11, 2023

Higher-education institutions are experiencing a high volume of cyberattacks and greater vulnerability to threats. Today’s educational technology environments connect a variety of endpoints—laptops, desktops, student management data, and email servers. They use Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices for managing environmental controls, security cameras, and door alarms. Both ends of the education spectrum gather, store, and use personal data from students and staff—and if they collect it, they must also protect it. As a result, schools need dedicated, skilled, and experienced executive leadership that is empowered, resourced, and responsible for campuswide cybersecurity issues.
