It’s Friday today, I’d like to talk about something else. Black (or white) lists are everywhere today. Many security tools implement a way to allow/deny accesses or actions on resources based on “lists” bsides the automated processing of data. The approach to implement them is quite different:
(Bloomberg) — A global protest movement backed by 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg got underway Friday, with students in Australia skipping school and workers walking off the job to demand action on climate change.
Our ancestors may not have had computers, but they certainly knew a thing or two about keeping children safe. We’ve already used Little Red Riding Hood as a guide to explaining Man-in-the-Middle attacks, handshakes, and phishing. Now let’s talk about two-factor authentication (2FA) and biometric security. This time, we’ll use a somewhat less-known fairy tale called The Wolf and the Seven Young Goats.
Is your company secure without multi-factor authentication (MFA)? Well, if you’re only leveraging traditional passwords… then probably not.
Grupo Argos is all about solid foundations, but innovation-driven growth presented the company with challenges and concerns that required them to find new footing.
Generally, hijacked accounts are used to distribute spam and bypass filters. However, a hijacked mailbox can be used for far nastier things, such as a business e-mail compromise (BEC) attack. Last month, a subsidiary of Toyota Boshoku Corporation was hit by such a scam, causing an estimated 4 billion yen (more than $37 million) of damage.

Voting-equipment vendors are preparing to formally ask security researchers for ideas on building a coordinated vulnerability disclosure (CVD) program, the next step in the industry’s gradual move to work more closely with ethical hackers.
(Bloomberg) — Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s lavish visit to the White House on Friday — including the second State Dinner of Donald Trump’s presidency — comes at a critical time as both nations seek to counter China’s growing influence in the South Pacific.
Online developer bootcamp company Thinkful is sending out email notifications that state an unauthorized user was able to gain access to employee accounts credentials. Due to this, they are requiring all users to reset their passwords the next time they login.
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Rival humanitarian resolutions calling for a cease-fire in Syria’s last rebel stronghold in Idlib were defeated in the Security Council Thursday, reflecting the deep divisions that have prevented the U.N.’s most powerful body from taking action to end the eight-year Syrian conflict.

Enterprises are investing heavily in cybersecurity, but are they effectively evolving security measures from a reactive, tactical approach to a more proactive, strategic approach?
“The workers had lit a bonfire and were sitting together when a drone targeted them,” says a tribal elder.
One lesson from TechCrunch’s Disrupt SF is that founders can’d get enough programming on the really hard questions. How do I get into Y Combinator? How do I hire a technical lead? How do I raise my first round? That’s why we created a special stage at Disrupt SF for the sole purpose of bringing the top Silicon Valley experts on stage to go deep on those questions with TechCrunch editors and also take audience questions. We call this the Extra Crunch stage, in a tip of the hat to TechCrunch’s Extra Crunch subscription service, which has the same, founder-centric mission.
The Kaspersky Industrial Cybersecurity Conference 2019 takes place this week in Sochi, the seventh such conference dedicated to the problems of industrial cybersecurity. Among other things, the conference will address the security of automation systems in buildings — industrial versions of the now common smart home. Typically, such a system consists of various sensors and controllers to manage elevators, ventilation, heating, lighting, electricity, water supply, video surveillance, alarm systems, fire extinguishing systems, etc.; it also includes servers that manage the controllers, as well as computers of engineers and dispatchers. Such automation systems are used not only in office and residential buildings, but in hospitals, shopping malls, prisons, industrial production, public transport, and other places where large work and/or living areas need to be controlled.
Extending advanced services to the WAN Edge of the network can have a serious impact on a security architecture and strategy. News cycles are filled with stories about critical network breaches that began by taking advantage of some neglected element of the network, whether by exploiting a vulnerable IoT device or by hijacking some wireless access point at a remote retail location.
The network is at the heart of the digital transformation, and when it comes to securing it, the firewall remains the frontline of defense for organizations. But as the network continues to evolve, we know that security must adapt. For Cisco, this means providing network security that has world-class controls in every place you need them with unified policy and threat visibility. We have made significant strides towards that vision over the past 12 months, and it is always gratifying when the market acknowledges it.
