I just came back from a great week at RSA. It was exciting to see how many customers stopped by our booth to inquire about the Cybersecurity Framework recently released by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The Framework’s objective is to improve the security posture of public and private organizations that manage critical infrastructures.

Sophos, a UK-based security company, released their Mid-Year Top Threats report a few days ago. I found it to be very informative and focused. If you are not subscribed to their Naked Security blog yet, I suggest you do. The report, as the title implies, focuses on the major IT security threats that their researchers have found. The numbers they give are frightening---although not surprising for anyone keeping an eye on the state of security---Sophos has seen 150,000 malware samples every day an...

Several weeks ago, I received two disturbing emails, one from my airline points program (and no it wasn’t an announcement that I’ve made my 1K for the year yet!) and the other from my bank.  You may know the emails I am talking about, you may have received them yourself.  They informed me my information had been stolen from a 3rd party marketing company.  Looking at the news the following day I realized this was no hoax – this was real.  Well, as a marketi...
