APIs and automation: The good, the bad, and the better

APIs are often adopted by businesses as a way to automate certain operational tasks. This not only helps to introduce efficiencies, it also reduces the chance of human error in repetitive, manual actions. But the relationship between APIs and automation doesn’t end there. To streamline the API management process, developers have started automating a variety of tasks in the API lifecycle, from development to production.

Secure networking starts (and ends) at the endpoint

The last decade has been challenging for the cyber industry. Attackers always seem to have the upper hand while defenders play catch up. It’s common to point to the ever-accelerating frequency and sophistication of attacks, siloed security that creates gaps, and a shortage of skilled cyber professionals as rationale for this lagging position. All are true but none represent the core reason for our current situation.

Do you still need antivirus protection for Windows in 2024?

The question of whether you need antivirus (AV) for Windows devices is always up for debate. The advancements and new technology have made the operating system (OS) more secure and reliable.

The Covert Art of Steganography

In cybersecurity, where information is both an asset and a potential target, various techniques are used to secure data and communications. One such covert art is steganography, which hides information within seemingly innocuous files to avoid detection. This article dives into the fascinating world of steganography, its history, techniques, and applications in the digital age.

AI in Cybersecurity: 8 use cases that you need to know

Cybercriminals live on the cutting edge of technology, and nothing fits the label more than artificial intelligence. It helps them design sophisticated, evolving malware, pose as higher-ups, and even successfully imitate biometrics like one’s voice. The use of AI in cyber security has developed as a natural response to these new and unpredictable challenges. How are cyber security experts using artificial intelligence to thwart the bad guys?

PCI DSS and penetration testing

PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a set of security controls created to ensure all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card data maintain an audit-ready environment. Version 4.0 was published in March 2022; organizations required to be compliant have until March 31, 2024, when compliance must be complete.
