President Obama


The White House

Today, President Obama spoke on the fatal shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile:

"I'd just ask folks to step back and think: What if this happened to somebody in your family? How would you feel? To be concerned about these issues is not political correctness, it's just being American and wanting to live up to our best and highest ideals."

Market leader in security management and risk assessment software continues global growth streak, adds more Fortune 500 companies and continues to drive high renewal rates

With a sports packed summer upon us, including Wimbledon, Euro's and the Olympics, 2016 really is a year of sport. But as sports teams, organisations and tournaments embrace mobile, cloud and analytics, how does this open them up to cyber attacks and hackers? What do hackers want from these targets and how do they plan to achieve this?

Mark Bower of HPE Security - Data Security, a provider of advanced encryption, tokenization and key management solutions, and Stephen Gates of NSFOCUS IB, a global network and application security provider, have shared their thought on this topic below:

Lastline arms general public with top tips for IoT security

LONDON, UK: Cyber security professionals are fearful of their home entertainment systems leaking their data, according to a new Lastline survey carried out at Infosecurity Europe this month that took into account the views of over 300 professionals. The same study showed a great concern for security risks related to Internet of Things (IoT) and connected devices on the whole and found that respondents also viewed healthcare devices (such as wearables) and connected cars as top risks. Interestingly, children’s toys came lower on the list of security concerns.

This week, Bitdefender discovered a new malware targeting Mac systems. Commenting, Lee Munson, security research from Comparitech.com, said:

"A raft of security vendors, including ESET and Bitdefender, have recently become a little excitable over a new piece of Mac malware known as Eleanor.

"When installed, the errant piece of code, which appears to conceal itself in a fake software application called EasyDoc Converter, launches a local web server and then connects to a hidden Tor website. An attacker can then essentially take full control of the machine while remaining safely anonymous.

Vissensa has announced that it has signed a multiyear agreement with the International Bar Association (IBA) to host and support key aspects of the Association’s computer infrastructure in one of its highly secure UK data centres.

The project included the migration of the IBA’s existing computer equipment to the new data centre location and included the introduction of cloud-based local and remote backup solutions to support the growing user community within the IBA supported by Vissensa.
