Bring Back Our Girls

Rolling Meadows, Illinois, USA: ISACA, a non-profit association of 100,000 IT professionals in 180 countries, today outlined what it believes will be the key trends organisations will face in 2013. With the financial climate set to remain in ‘crisis mode’ for the foreseeable future, greater collaboration, cheaper infrastructure, information overload and BYOD will remain on the corporate agenda as trends to be addressed if the organisation is to benefit. But it won’t be ‘business as usual’ as EaaS (everything as a service) is set to make an entrance, bringing with it the ‘Internet of Things’.

2012 suggested that despite everything we still don’t seem to be learning the lessons of data protection. Too much of the damage and frequency of data breaches and hacktivist attacks can be attributed to flawed approaches to how critical data is secured.

The National Business Crime Solution (NBCS) has acquired the Business Crime Intelligence Bureau (BCIB), as part of its strategy to reduce criminal activity perpetrated against businesses nationwide in both the retail and wider sectors, Vigilance can report.

London, UK: ISACA, a non-profit association of 100,000 IT professionals in 180 countries, today released further insights from its 2012 IT Risk/Reward Barometer. The study, conducted amongst 4,500 IT professionals from 83 countries, many of whom are of senior management level or higher, reveals that organisations remain sceptical when it comes to cloud services—especially public cloud computing. The overarching trend is that businesses see numerous benefits for adopting cloud services; however, the perceived risk cause them concern.

What will 2013 bring for cyber security?

First, the good news. We think security will improve for larger, well-funded organizations. In the same way James Q. Wilson introduced community policing, transforming law enforcement, we think a community approach—a sort of security commune—will improve security in the digital realm. Sharing attack information will help remove seeming randomness of attacks.

Rolling Meadows, IL, USA: Due to increasing demand for the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certifications, global IT association ISACA is adding a third CISA and CISM exam administration in 2013.

It’s the time of year again when IT security experts predict what the next year will bring. Today, we bring to Vigilance's readers the predictions of three IT experts as seen from their 'crystal glass'. Read on:

Darren Anstee, solutions architect team lead at Arbor Networks, predicts:

1) DDoS will become more visible as a business risk: Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) has become a familiar term to many more of us over the past year. The mainstream press coverage of the attacks from Anonymous; our increased appreciation of the broader spread of motivations behind attacks; and the simple fact that many organisations have now experienced attacks have seen to that. Ideologically motivated attacks are often in the press, but many other attacks are motivated by extortion, the need for a distraction (from other criminal activity e.g. data-theft) and revenge; DDoS is even being used now as a competitive ‘weapon’ in some markets.
