It has been reported that although almost six months have passed since the Heartbleed security flaw, hundreds of thousands of devices worldwide still remain vulnerable. Below are comments from several experts in the IT security industry:

ICS and SCADA community still lack “integrated engineering, ICS technical, and cyber security specialists,” says expert

UK: Ahead of SANS' 2014 European ICS Security Summit, significant security issues are still facing the ICS/SCADA community, “We are starting to see ICS capable threats and a series of incidents that have been specifically targeted against ICS environments,” says Michael Assante, SANS project lead for Industrial Control System (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) security.

Varonis Systems, Inc. has explained how its product suite has helped Emerson Industrial Automation regain control of its file shares and increase efficiency at the same time. The Welsh based manufacturer was crippled by a variation of the Conficker virus just over two years ago. The virus exploited folders that were incorrectly configured or too accessible, which are very difficult to spot and remediate with manual methods. Since deploying the combined power of Varonis DatAdvantage, Varonis DataPrivilege, Varonis IDU Classification Framework, and Varonis Data Transport Engine, Emerson has been able to reduce risk, increase operational efficiency, reduce storage costs, and improve productivity.

Privilege management expert sees huge success in European market after only six months

London, UK: Lieberman Software Corporation has announced that only six months after launching into EMEA, the company has already signed up 30 new channel partners and two distributors in the region, highlighting the huge demand for privilege management solutions to help control the access to sensitive data within organisations.

There are stories circulating about the Sony PlayStation network cyber-attack. Sony's PlayStation network was shut down for several hours after cyber-attackers overloaded it in what's known as a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. Commenting on this, Lancope CTO, TK Keanini, said:

Guardian24, the UK’s lone worker supplier of the year, has announced the release of their lone worker protection app on the Google Play Store. Installing the app directly from the play store provides users with a quicker and easier download of the app. It also gives the user automatic notifications when a new version of the app is released or when an upgrade is available.

London: Wherever secure transactions or network access are required, the person requesting access first needs to prove their identity. One of the methods for user identification is the use of digital certificates (certs), which are like digital ID cards. This procedure is examined in a new white paper issued by the IT security expert SecurEnvoy entitled "The Risks of Authentication using Digital Certificates". It is available for download free-of-charge on the manufacturer's website.
