Federal legislators are asking Facebook, Google, and Twitter executives to come to Washington to discuss privacy concerns.
A bill in the Georgia senate would criminalize some activities that security researchers commonly perform.
When GitHub unveiled its Security Alerts scanning feature last November, it was betting that if project owners knew which software components they were using had vulnerabilities, they would update them with patched versions. GitHub said that by Dec. 1, 450,000 vulnerabilities had been resolved, either by removing the dependency entirely or swapping out with a more recent, patched version. That's a little over 10 percent of the vulnerabilities addressed, right off the bat.
Recent advances in artificial intelligence, especially in deep learning and other machine learning approaches, are really exciting for the future of security. In the rush to roll out AI in security technology, it is easy to forget that machine learning is just a tool, and that like any tool, is the most effective when used by an expert.
The CLOUD Act gives governments new powers to seize data stored in other countries, raising privacy concerns.
Organizations don't have to decide between hiring a CSO/CISO or not having a security leader at all. They can tap the CISO's security expertise by working with a virtual CSO. Gal Shpantzer and Wim Remes talk about the challenges of being an intricate part of the organization's security but still an outsider.
The issues over encrypted data faced by Telegram in Russia and Apple in China could portend a conflict in the U.S. soon.
Akamai CSO Andy Ellis takes an uncommon approach to his job, distributing responsibility for security across the organization.
The FBI and NSA desire to weaken encryption is still the same, despite change at the top of the agencies.
It’s easy to talk the security talk, but it isn’t so easy to walk the walk. We learned that the hard way at a IoT security workshop during the 2018 Security Analyst Summit. We were asked to design a security product to protect an average household’s collection of IoT devices.
The disclosure this week of several new vulnerabilities in AMD chips--without any technical details--has again raised concerns about the way some researchers choose to deal with vendors on vulnerability research.
It turned out to be harder than expected to create a definitive list of who is poking the Internet and looking for information about devices. Enter Grey Noise, whose mission is to count the scanners. While scanners scour the Internet looking for things, Grey Noise eavesdrops on everyone—researchers, defenders, and malicious actors—doing the scanning.
Some connected cars will download and permanently store data from phones that sync to them.
Whether or not a map is valuable depends entirely on how well someone can use it to navigate from one place to another. Same goes for Internet scans. The scanning tools pull together different types of information, such as the kind of device and how it is configured, but the resulting map—the scan data—is valuable only if people can use it to answer important questions.
The Uber Metta adversarial simulation tool allows defenders to test their network detection systems.
