Use offense to inform defense Find flaws before the bad guys do

January 16, 2019

The information technology community has utilized container technology since the LXC project began in 2008 (Hildred, 2015). Containers are a form of virtualization that package application code and its dependencies together. Containers share the operating system kernel but maintain isolated processes. Until recently, it was not possible for the Windows operating system to share its kernel.

22 Cybersecurity Tips for 2022

whitePaper | June 13, 2022

Many cyber-attacks involve ransomware, a form of malicious software or malware, designed to deny access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid and a decryption key (commonly called a decryptor) is given to the victim. The encryption is virtually unbreakable without the decryption key, and you should not spend valuable time seeking a way around the encryption if you are attacked with it. Ransomware can spread in multiple ways, but most typically, through phishing emails or by unknowingly visiting an infected website. Ransomware can be catastrophic to healthcare and other organizations, preventing critical information and systems for patient care from being accessed, for example.

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.

Cyber Risk Appetite: Defining and Understanding Risk in the Modern Enterprise

whitePaper | January 16, 2020

Managing risk is a balancing act for organizations of all sizes and disciplines. While some organizations take on too much risk, others arguably do not take on enough. Complicating this equation is the emergence of cyber as one of the most impactful sources of risk in the modern enterprise. In fact, cyber security is now increasingly reviewed by corporate boards of directors and often discussed with financial analysts who see cyber security risk as an imminent and paramount business risk. Because the consequences of cyber security failures can be damaging to business revenues and brand reputation, CEOs have lost their positions as a result of data breaches and inept preparation and planning.

Embracing Security Operations in the Educational Sector

whitePaper | December 22, 2022

Nearly every part of the educational sector has fallen victim to a cyberattack, from elementary schools to universities. Securing education is no longer a “nice to have” but a “must do” and is a growing concern among the global educational community. Creating and maintaining effective information security and cybersecurity operations in education comes down to people, processes, and tools. It’s crucial for IT and security leaders across the entire spectrum of educational institutions to find the right balance between the three. While there are success stories of achieving that balance, there’s always more to do to identify, understand, and mitigate cybersecurity risks to these organizations. Establishing and improving existing cybersecurity operations must become a priority.
