The Department of Health and Human Services offers a model for applying multifactor authentication for privileged users, a new report illustrates. On the other hand, a second report shows HHS, like many healthcare organizations, is struggling to manage wireless security vulnerabilities.
Cisco has begun releasing updates for all ASA devices to patch them against a buffer overflow vulnerability that was targeted by leaked Equation Group attack tools. Attackers can exploit the flaw to gain remote control of ASA devices.
If leading intelligence agencies can seemingly hack a wide variety of IT gear, what hope is there for enterprise security? Experts describe how organizations should respond to the recent dump of attack tools from the Equation Group, which is widely believed to be tied to the NSA.
In this video interview, Global Cyber Alliance CEO Phil Reitinger explains how the vastness and complexity of the internet creates cyber vulnerabilities, but one day those same characteristics, if used properly, could mitigate cyber threats.
Medical device cybersecurity must be recognized as a critical public health issue so that all segments of the healthcare sector understand their roles in addressing the many complicated challenges involved, says Dale Nordenberg, M.D., of the Medical Device Innovation, Safety and Security Consortium.
The Equation Group leak revealed a zero-day flaw in Cisco's firewall software - a patch is being prepped - as well as a vulnerability in Fortinet's software that's since been patched. Has the U.S. government long known about the flaws?
A very advanced and targeted cyber-espionage campaign has been active for five years, and employs stealthy malware that can penetrate air-gapped networks and exfiltrate data using multiple techniques, security researchers warn.
As the Pokémon Go craze continues to take off, it's clear that when it comes to chasing virtual creatures through real-world locations, too many people fail to keep some common sense guidelines in mind.
In the wake of the Hillary Clinton email controversy, organizations need to be more aware of the risks of unsanctioned "shadow IT" and take appropriate mitigation steps, says security expert Mac McMillan.
More than 200,000 internet-connected systems remain vulnerable to the OpenSSL vulnerability known as Heartbleed, more than two years after the flaw was publicly announced and related patches released, warns security researcher Billy Rios.
While malware may be used for an initial attack, hackers quickly begin using tools to move around networks that often don't raise suspicion. Here's what to look out for to detect a "low and slow" attack.
A massive scan of open internet ports confirms long-held assumptions that old, insecure internet protocols never die, and in fact may still thrive, especially in Belgium, says Rapid 7 security research manager Tod Beardsley.
