Non-repudiation: Your Virtual Shield in Cybersecurity

In the digital world, where countless users communicate, share data, and engage in diverse activities, determining the origin and actions behind these interactions can be quite challenging. This is where non-repudiation steps in. Coupling other security factors, such as delivery proof, identity verification, and a digital signature, creates non-repudiation. This guarantees that the parties involved in the transmission are unable to renounce the execution of an action.

What We Learned from the 2024 State of Cybersecurity Survey

Cybersecurity is a pressing topic of concern for most organizations today, as any amount of sensitive data or digital assets can present a security risk. Understanding the digital landscape, threat trends, and the way they change over time is an essential step in defending against cyberattacks. It can be daunting for any organization to stay in the loop and maintain perspective on cyberthreats and security practices.

WEF Is Waging War on Misinformation and Cyber Insecurity

What is the greatest cyber risk in the world right now? Ransomware? Business Email Compromise? Maybe AI? Well, the last one is pretty close. According to the World Economic Forum, misinformation and disinformation are the most severe global risks of the next two years. In their Global Risks Report 2024, the WEF posited that the post-pandemic world is at a "turning point," with the two key problems possessing the power to do everything, from challenging mental health to eroding human rights.

Improving OT Security in Industrial Processes

Have you ever considered that even before you enjoy the first sip of your favorite morning beverage, you have probably interacted with at least half of the 16 critical infrastructure sectors that keep a nation running? In one way or another, the simple act of brewing a cup of tea would probably not be possible without interacting with water, energy, manufacturing, food and agriculture, waste, transportation, and financial sectors.

Top 5 Scam Techniques: What You Need to Know

Scammers are increasingly resourceful when coming up with scam techniques. But they often rely on long-standing persuasion techniques for the scam to work. So, you may hear about a new scam that uses a novel narrative, but there is a good chance that the scam relies on proven scam techniques once the narrative is stripped away. These scam techniques often exploit our characteristics and heuristics, or things that make us human and fallible.

Delving into NCSC's New SMB Cybersecurity Guide

Although attacks on small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) rarely hit the headlines, they remain a serious threat. Unlike their corporate counterparts, many SMBs lack the tools, skills, and mitigation services they need to combat modern threats. Understanding that forewarned is forearmed, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) recently debuted a guide aimed at smaller companies that lack dedicated IT or support staff called “Using Online Services Safely”.

Cyber Resilience: Planned and Practiced

Navigating the information superhighway is like threading your car through traffic on a dangerous rush hour freeway. The journey is full of perils that can prevent you from getting where you need to go and turn the trip into a bumpy ride. In the same way we plan for wrecks and try to avoid hazards on the road, businesses can minimize the impact of an incident and cruise confidently through the chaos by thinking with a resilience-first mindset.

Customizing Security with Security Configuration Management (SCM)

Many of the breaches of the past ten years have taken advantage of weak or nonexistent security settings. Conversely, for example, companies that configured their Docker application to the CIS recommended security settings for container users and privileges were not as vulnerable to container escape exploits. Arguably, a configuration change prevented many breaches. Security configuration management can make a huge difference in reducing an organization’s vulnerability.

Bring us the head of LockBit! $15 million bounty offered for information on leaders of notorious ransomware gang

A huge reward is being offered for information leading to the identification or location of any of the leaders of the LockBit ransomware gang. The bounty offer comes from the US State Department, following this week's disruption of the criminal organisation's activities. LockBit, which has been operating since 2020, has targeted thousands of victims around the globe, causing the loss of billions of dollars in both ransom payments and recovery.

Building Customer Trust through Transparent Safety and Security Practices

Last year, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted rules on cybersecurity risk management that focused on transparency. Much of the adopted rules were focused on investors, but the rules also underscored the importance of the impact to customers when cybersecurity incidents occur. The data security landscape has recently shifted to prioritize the user or the customer, and that was just one of the steps in furthering the approach.
