Industry professionals applauded the steps by the White House to promote cyber threat information sharing, but an executive order can only go so far and more is needed than just information sharing to combat sophisticated cyber attacks, experts said.
UK-based Semiconductor technology firm ARM Ltd. announced on Monday that PolarSSL, the open source Transport Layer Security (TLS) solution for software and embedded devices, has been rebranded as “ARM mbed TLS”.
The global Industrial Control System (ICS) Security Market is estimated to reach $8.73 billion in 2019, according to a market research report.
According to a study conducted by EMC, enterprises employing more than 250 people lost a total of $1.7 trillion in the past year due to downtime and data loss.
Two independent research groups have already managed to bypass the protection mechanisms provided by the latest version of Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET).
Version of the 5.1 of Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) brings improved protection and addresses several application compatibility issues.
The 2014 ICS Cyber Security Conference will address real world problems and discuss actual ICS cyber incidents, many of which have never been told before.

NIST wants to build a reconfigurable cybersecurity testbed to provide guidance on the best practices for implementing security strategies within industrial control systems without negatively impacting process performance.
Hypervisors have become an important part of enterprise environments and while they should normally reduce the attack surface, experts warn that they can be plagued by security vulnerabilities that could be leveraged by malicious actors.

When you start keeping a long-term data series, remember that you can't change your algorithm for interpreting it on a regular basis.

While intelligence is a critical component of a mature security program, it should not drive security. A risk-driven approach provides a much more comprehensive and scientific approach that allows organizations to keep pace with today’s sophisticated threats.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is an important building block, but still just the first step towards implementing operationalized defenses against cyber security risks.

In order to be effective, security solutions must become more directly associated, in real-time, to cyber defense planning models.

Is budget a good metric for security? In other words, if an organization wishes to improve its security posture, is spending more money an appropriate response?

There is a common misconception that in order to move to virtual security solutions, companies can, or should, replace physical security technologies they rely on to keep their networks safe today.

An organization that keeps records of its security incidents should be able to study that data to understand the top ways in which it is generally becoming compromised.

There are two ways to start establishing security metrics. One is what I think of as the “bottom up” approach and the other being “top down”. For best results you might want to try a bit of both.

When you start your metrics program, you'll find that a great deal of information can be gleaned from existing data that gets stored in various places – most likely in your system logs.
