First you had 'shadow IT,' then 'shadow cloud.' Now enterprises are encountering 'shadow APIs' - and the lack of visibility into these interfaces is causing new, often overlooked cybersecurity vulnerabilities, says Subbu Iyer of Cequence Security.
Federal, state and local governments are among the many victims of the supply chain attack that backdoored the SolarWinds' Orion network-monitoring software, and victims "may need to rebuild all network assets" being monitored by the software, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency warns.
He's commanded armed forces, directed the National Security Agency, and now he is president of vendor IronNet Cybersecurity. From this unique perspective, retired General Keith Alexander says the SolarWinds breach is "a call for action."
In the wake of the SolarWinds breach, NIST's Ron Ross has turned his attention to systems security engineering - and the reality that the adversaries are exploiting it to their advantage better than the defenders are. This disparity, Ross says, has to change.
After a nearly two-month hiatus, the Emotet botnet recently sprung back to life with a fresh spamming and phishing campaign designed to spread other malware as secondary payloads, according to security researchers. The botnet has also been revamped to better avoid network defenses.
An investigation at the U.S. Treasury Department has found that it suffered a "significant" breach as a result of the SolarWinds Orion supply chain attack, a top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee reports. Meanwhile President-elect Joe Biden said of the attack: "I promise you, there will be a response."
In light of calls from some quarters for the U.S. to launch online attacks in reprisal for the SolarWinds supply chain campaign - allegedly carried out by Russia's foreign intelligence service - it's time to pause and remember: Spies are going to spy.
Lawmakers are pressing government agencies for answers following disclosures this week about an advanced persistent threat group's massive hacking campaign involving compromised SolarWinds Orion network management software. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday Russians "engaged in this activity."
Microsoft says it has removed malware related to an expansive hacking campaign that has ensnared thousands of organizations and U.S. government agencies. Meanwhile, CISA warns the SolarWinds Orion supply chain compromise may not be the only infection vector.
Brand impersonation - it isn't just a marketing or reputational issue. It's an InfoSec problem, says Shashi Prakash, CTO and co-founder of Bolster. He describes the growing problem and why security is best positioned to lead detection and response.
By some estimates, there are more than 3,500 cybersecurity vendors, and the market is growing more crowded, noisy and competitive. How does one be the signal and not the noise? Six Israeli cybersecurity marketing executives share their passionate views.
Waterfall, Agile, DevOps... it seems that every few years, a new methodology is born for optimum software creation within an organization. While these processes all have their strengths and weaknesses, the streamlining (and, er, previously absent red tape) they bring can feel like somewhat of a hindrance to the main...
