SAN DIEGO, Calif.: Cubic Advanced Learning Solutions (CALS) has announced a partnership with Applied Research Associates (ARA) and Epic Games, Inc. as a new member in the Unreal Government Network (UGN).

Singapore: At this year’s Mobile Pwn2Own event that took place during the Applied Security Conference (PacSec) in Tokyo, Japan, the research arm of global consultancy MWR InfoSecurity - MWR Labs - won two different categories by exclusively demonstrating security flaws in both the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Amazon Fire Phone. One team of researchers from MWR Labs in the UK exploited the Samsung Galaxy S5, enabling them to steal personal details, while another team from MWR Labs in South Africa exposed a remote code execution on the Amazon Fire Phone.

London: The Asian region, in particular, is considered to be a major generator of insidious malware. The main intention behind the new bugs, trojans and other such unwanted threats that emerge on a daily basis is to steal passwords. Asian firms, in particular, should therefore ensure they have security that goes beyond simple password protection. As the inventor of tokenless two-factor authentication, SecurEnvoy provides a method that uses passcodes generated dynamically on smartphones to provide additional security for login procedures. This flexible and cost-effective method will now be marketed by the Malaysian ICT expert Infinite Data, in its new role as a SecurEnvoy Authorized Distributor.

Britain means Business, the leading business show for fast growing business and entrepreneurs, has announced David Weir CBE as the latest addition to the speaker line-up.

In light of the “potentially catastrophic bug” that has been reported to be targeting all versions of Windows, Gavin Millard, EMEA Technical Director for Tenable Network Security, comments:

The growing sphere of influence of the Islamic State (IS) has led to an increase in extremist rhetoric and activities in many regions around the world, including Central Asia. The notable increase in terrorist activities, surge in recruitment for terrorist organisations, and rise in illicit oil trafficking to fund these organisations have been largely accredited to the presence of IS agents and sympathisers in Central Asia.
