Building a Security Minded Culture

Cybersecurity is no longer a question about whether an employee should have access to Facebook. Information security teams are dealing with phishing attacks, access to business cloud applications, mobility and zero-second malware on a minute-by-minute basis.

Should We Just Accept Cyber Breaches as the New Normal?

An August article suggested that the due to the large amounts of cyber breaches that have impacted both public and private sectors that have put millions of individuals personal identifiable information at risk, the general attitude toward breaches is becoming more mainstream and accepted.  This is an unfortunate state of affairs when instead of compelling [...]

Cutting the Cost of Patch Management

The general notion in the cybersecurity industry is that antivirus is an antiquated product, which does not provide enough security against today’s advanced threats. Symantec CEO even went further and declared the demise of the Anti-Virus (read the article Here). But recent events seem to indicate otherwise. Just a few weeks ago the antivirus maker, [...]
