As the first day of RSA Conference 2016 sessions wrapped up, ISMG's editorial team sat down to discuss their takeaways from sessions and interviews. Editors Tom Field, Tracy Kitten and Mathew Schwartz offer an RSA review.
Financial institutions around the world are targeted by cybercriminals more than any other industry. To minimize risks, it is required to evaluate the current state of your security, aggressively identify the most significant risks, and modernize your security infrastructure.
Many organizations have been adding...
In the era of the cloud, the always-on workforce and high levels of digital literacy, your customers, prospects, staff and suppliers expect 24/7 network access and availability. However, 24/7 access is not enough; your data needs protection from any number of potential security breaches. These can happen when data is...
Congressman Will Hurd has a simple request for U.S. government agencies: Have you been using vulnerable Juniper Networks devices? But Congress needs to consider tougher questions about its culpability in this backdoor debacle.
How many networking vendors - like Juniper - have been selling devices with backdoors attackers could use to intercept and decrypt communications? Some networking giants say they've launched code reviews. But why are eight vendors staying silent?
Networking giant Fortinet warns that more products than it initially suspected have a hardcoded password that attackers could abuse to remotely gain backdoor access to vulnerable devices. But why did the flaws take so long to be found?
The Ukrainian energy sector is being targeted by fresh phishing attacks, the country's computer emergency response team warns. But it's not clear who's behind those campaigns, or a recent malware infection at Kiev's main airport.
Every company, regardless of size, has confidential information that needs to be protected. With data breach incidents happening on an almost weekly basis, organizations must take the necessary precautions to ensure their data is secure. But how many organizations are truly making efforts to keep their data...
Networking vendor Fortinet refutes a researcher's assertions that there is an SSH "backdoor" in the FortiOS firmware that runs its devices. Many experts say that while the patched flaw looks unintentional, it might still serve as a backdoor.
A team of cryptographers has found that the random-number generator Dual_EC - known to have been backdoored by the NSA - was added to Juniper's ScreenOS firmware around 2008 and is still present, although the networking giant has promised to soon replace it.
Over the years, network security threats have grown in number, type and sophistication. Today's security teams have to protect against advanced persistent threats, stealth bots, targeted application attacks, designer malware and more. The attacks on the network are relentless, and high-profile breaches continue to...
Reports on the Ukrainian energy supplier hack have left many crucial questions unanswered: Who was involved, did malware directly trigger a blackout and are other suppliers at risk from similar attacks? Cybersecurity experts offer potential answers.
Banking and government institutions, and other organizations that employ Juniper Networks gear, are being actively targeted after the company warned that it discovered that someone added a backdoor to the firmware in 2012. Who's responsible?
In the wake of Juniper Networks finding "unauthorized code" in its firewall firmware that could be used to remotely access devices and encrypted communications, Cisco is reviewing its own code for signs of tampering. Will other vendors follow suit?
The FBI is reportedly investigating newly discovered "unauthorized code" in the firmware that runs the NetScreen firewalls built by Juniper Networks, which attackers could have been using to remotely access devices and decrypt traffic without leaving a trace.
