ARCHER, a British high-performance computing system for academic and theoretical research, has been offline since May 11, when a "security incident" forced the University of Edinburgh to take down the supercomputer. The security incident also affected supercomputers in other parts of Europe, university officials say.
The increasing use of internet-connected devices in manufacturing facilities is opening up new ways for hackers to target so-called "smart" factories with unconventional attack methods, according to an analysis by security firm Trend Micro and the Polytechnic University of Milan.
A recently discovered cyber-espionage toolkit called Ramsay is designed to infiltrate air-gapped networks to steal documents, take screenshots and compromise other devices, according to the security firm ESET.
The COVID-19 pandemic caught many global enterprises by surprise. But as they prepare to emerge from quarantine and reopen their doors, they are taking a thoughtful approach to bolstering cybersecurity for on-premise and remote workers alike. Pamela Kubiatowski of Zscaler shares insights.
To keep up with security issues raised by the transition to a much larger remote workforce and expanded telehealth services during the COVID-19 crisis, healthcare entities should "streamline" their approach to risk management, says Dustin Hutchison of the security consultancy Pondurance.
Security experts and law enforcement officials have long argued that paying ransoms doesn't pay. For starters, it directly funds the cybercrime ecosystem and makes it attractive for criminals to keep launching ransomware attacks.
What does workforce authentication look like today? And as this remote workforce becomes the norm, how do you envision workforce authentication in five years? These are the questions posed by Jeff Carpenter of HID Global in an upcoming roundtable discussion.
Australian shipping giant Toll Group has vowed to again not pay a ransom after suffering its second ransomware attack of the year. In the latest incident, however, the company warns that attackers also stole corporate data - and it may get leaked.
Enterprises are approaching customer identity and access management from multiple angles, and maturity is growing. These are takeaways from a recent roundtable discussion of CIAM myths and realities. Keith Casey of Okta discusses this event and his vision of CIAM.
Phishing scams continue to be a leading cause of health data breaches so far this year. But the theft of unencrypted laptops led to the biggest breach reported in 2020, and an insider breach involving a physician exposed data on thousands of patients.
The Federal Trade Commission is assessing whether to make changes to a seldom-used, decade-old health data breach notification rule for certain technology vendors that do not fall under the umbrella of HIPAA.
What are some best practices for moving network security from the datacenter to the cloud? And what are the essentials of Secure Access Service Edge frameworks, and how can they be implemented? These are among the questions to be discussed in a new series of virtual roundtables hosted by Forcepoint and Homayun Yaqub.
What good is securing your data if the bad guys have already stolen your encryption keys? Brad Beutlich of nCipher Security sets the record straight about encryption and why some cryptography myths persist.
