    News International on säännöllisesti tavoite spear phishing-hyökkäykset kaltaisia, jotka on vaarantua numero kilpailijansa, ja se on jotain, joka pitää yhtiön johtaja hereillä yöllä. Hyökkääjät tuottavat nyt vakuuttavasta sähköpostit, joka huiputtaa osaksi ilkeä liitetiedostojen lataaminen käyttäjät, avaaminen organisaationsa tietomurtoja ja taloudellista vahinkoa. Ja jopa maineikkaimmista yritykset laskevat hyökkääjät temppuja. New York Times ja Wall Street Journal myönsi infrastruktuurinsa oli vaarantunut spear phishing-hyökkäykset, väitetään muovanneet tukemat Kiinan hallitus. Mutta ei ole suuri UK mediassa on myöntänyt samanlaisia rikkomuksia.

    I diskussionerna om cyberhot som fortsätta och utöka dagligen, finns det en tendens att klumpa ihop alla typer av hot oavsett där de faller på skalan. Denna brist på precision medför konsekvenser, varav en är att det hindrar oss från att fokusera på de högsta slut hot som ska behärska vår största uppmärksamhet. Om du vill flytta fram snyggt, behöver Förenta staterna ett sätt att tänka om olika hot aktörer som tolkar och gör åtskillnad mellan mellan och bland dem, enligt de betydande sätt där de kan variera. Sådan en typologi skulle hjälpa amerikanska beslutsfattare bättre rack och stapla hotet, och svara därefter. Tänk på att inte alla hackar eller hackare, och alla aktörer, är de samma.

    Nationalstater--särskilt Kina, Ryssland, Iran och Nordkorea--utgör high-end cyber-hot mot amerikanska hemland, men staterna varierar mycket i sin förfining, kapacitet, avsikt, motivation, tradecraft och dess tillämpning. Förenta staterna bör fokusera sina resurser på detta high-end hot spektrum, och därmed, bör fokusera på aktörer och deras beteenden, snarare än på teknik eller på medel och formerna för attack. Detta innebär att gräva djupare i detaljerna, och factoring av fall Detaljer om varje av våra motståndare i en skräddarsydd amerikanska svar som utformats för att avskräcka, hindra och tvinga dem.

    La connectivité inégalée de l'ère numérique a créé des énormes avantages socioéconomiques. Quatre sur chaque cinq maisons au Royaume-Uni ont accès à l'internet ; les deux cinquièmes des adultes sont des utilisateurs de smartphone et, en moyenne, chaque ménage a trois types d'appareil compatible internet. Mais l'omniprésence de la technologie a apporté avec elle des défis nouveaux pour la sécurité en ligne. Une forte augmentation des menaces du cyberespace a mis à rude épreuve la capacité des organismes à maintenir une vulnérabilité des systèmes de gestion mis à jour. Clairement, l'avance sur cyberhazards de plus en plus sophistiqués et complexes est un défi pour les décideurs qui cherchent à préserver notre bien-être économique. Il y a des signes que le gouvernement est conscient du problème croissant de la cybercriminalité, quand il a récemment annoncé qu'une unité nationale sur la cybercriminalité devait être établi au sein de l'Agence nationale de la criminalité. Lors du lancement de l'appareil, le ministre de la sécurité, James Brokenshire, dit que ce serait un seul plomb UK pour lutter contre la cybercriminalité ; fournir une réponse d'enquête spécialisée et rapide-temps afin d'éliminer les possibilités de la cybercriminalité, notamment grâce à une collaboration étroite avec des partenaires tels que les agences de renseignement. Ce dernier développement dans la lutte ...

  • In his State of the Union address, President Obama announced that he had signed an executive order (EO) on cybersecurity. The order uses a standard-setting approach to improve cybersecurity. However, such a model will only impose costs, encourage compliance over security, keep the U.S. tied to past threats, and threaten innovation. While the EO does take some positive steps in the area of information sharing, these steps are hamstrung by the EO’s inability to provide critical incentives such as liability protection. As a result, this order could result in few modest changes, or it could result in substantial negative effects.

    The Scope of the Order The EO uses a very broad definition of critical infrastructure, defining it as “systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.” Such a broad definition could be understood to include systems normally considered outside the cybersecurity conversation, such as agriculture. While there is no way of knowing how far implementation will actually go, this broad definition is certainly concerning. Inhibited Information Sharing In Section 4, the EO attempts to expand information sharing in several noteworthy ways. It calls for the federal government to quickly move unclassified information to the privat...

  • Last Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average — the benchmark stock index of America’s blue chip companies – closed above 14,000 for the first time since the financial meltdown sent the U.S. economy into the worst crisis in decades. The continued resurgence of the U.S. auto industry and growing optimism about the overall economy helped propel the Dow above the psychologically important 14,000 point level. The surging Dow is an indication of the increasing financial health of the largest American companies, a bright spot in an otherwise shaky U.S. economic recovery, particularly with respect to unemployment. America’s blue chip firms — including industrial giants, banks, and auto companies — are healthier than they’ve been in years. But what about the largest U.S. tech companies? Like the other major stock indices, the tech-heavy Nasdaq index is at or near multi-year highs. On Friday alone, the Nasdaq rose 1%, nearly touching the index’s five-year high, which it hit last September, driven in part by tech juggernaut Apple, which had just released the iPhone 5. But Wall Street sentiment has soured on Apple in recent months, somewhat tempering the Nasdaq’s continued ascent. How high can tech stocks go? Given Apple’s size — it’s the largest tech company in the world — it makes sense to begin any forward-looking evaluation of the Nasdaq with the Cupertino, Calif.-based cash machine. Apple constitutes about 12% of the Nasdaq’s valuation, and there’s no question the company’s recent ...
