Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations know that while IoT devices are necessary for the modern healthcare environment, they can pose real security risks if proper protections are not put into place. From dealing with devices running outdated software to diagnosing networks gone haywire, we’ll talk through some...
If Russia uses hack attacks to support its invasion, would Western governments want to immediately attribute those attacks or disruptions? Enter a Thursday alert from the U.S. government warning that it is "aware of possible threats to U.S. and international satellite communication networks."
Federal authorities are warning about seven vulnerabilities affecting a software agent used to remotely manage an array of medical devices and other connected gear. If exploited, the vulnerabilities could enable hackers to gain full control of the affected devices or alter their configurations.
Since 2019, the Global Cyber Alliance has been using a custom IoT honeypot solution that identifies global attack risks and collects data about IoT attacks. Leslie Daigle discusses its findings about how threats have evolved and offers advice on how to better secure IoT devices and tech.
ThycoticCentrify renames itself Delinea to grow as a "seamless" security solution. Other acquisitions focus on providing tools to developers to better secure applications and software, boost healthcare device security, fight against chargeback fraud and bring smaller organizations into compliance.
The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report features an analysis of how attackers are distributing Night Sky crypto-locking malware to exploit Log4j vulnerabilities, lessons learned from Log4j and a security flaw that affects some Tesla-built vehicles.
Ransomware has captured the attention of many due to its far-reaching impacts on industrial control systems (ICS) and has become the primary attack vector for many industrial organisations in 2021. Once a problem that only affected IT infrastructure, incidents like Colonial Pipeline, Honeywell, and JB Foods showed...
As Russia masses troops on its border with Ukraine, the White House says Russian disinformation campaigns have been aimed at destabilizing Ukraine's government, while experts have seen a surge in "cyber intrusions" against infrastructure, banking and government targets in advance of a potential invasion.
The year is ending with a cybersecurity bang - not whimper - due to the widespread prevalence of the Apache Log4j vulnerability. Researchers warn that at least 40% of corporate networks have been targeted by attackers seeking to exploit the flaw. More than 250 vendors have already issued security advisories.
While there are many solutions that claim to simplify certificate lifecycle management, not all of
them are built to address the unique complexities of today’s expansive and distributed digital
When evaluating a certificate management solution, it is important to look for
key capabilities that...
Could the internet of things be made more secure? A draft law in Britain would impose stronger cybersecurity regulations for manufacturers, importers and distributors of smartphones, TVs, toys and other "connected" digital devices, backed by the threat of fines of up to $13 million for noncompliance.
The top cybercrime threats facing organizations in Europe and beyond include ransomware affiliate programs, more sophisticated mobile malware and cryptocurrency-hawking investment fraud, among other types of crime, according to Europol's latest Internet Organized Crime Threat Assessment.
The rise of 5G for business is accompanied by anticipation, but also anxiety. Will the expanded footprint of IoT create an unwieldy attack surface? Will the latency benefits of edge computing be worth creating a potential new strike vector? Don’t believe everything you read in the tech headlines.
