Absolute Networks are pleased to announce their partnership with Derbyshire County Cricket Club.

As a Derby based business, making connections with businesses in the county is high on our agenda. Being selected as the preferred IT partner for the 2018/19 cricket season for Derbyshire and the sponsorship opportunities that has given us will raise our profile in the county.

It’s great to see the Absolute Networks logo on the old score board building and elsewhere in the ground. We’ll be keeping an eye on the scores and cheering Derbyshire on all season.

The deadline for GDPR is fast approaching.
80% of all data breaches are down to staff being unaware of how to handle personal data and it is therefore important that all staff are trained in the basic principles of GDPR. In the case of a breach due to human error it is very important that you can demonstrate that you have taken the correct steps to ensure the staff are GDPR aware.
Our course has been developed with a global training company and is backed by HFW (Legal Counsel to the ICO). In addition to this the course is certified by AoFAQ and accredited by The Insurance Institute.
Call 01332 291992 or see our GDPR Website for more details

Spectre and Meltdown - What are they ?

They are the collective names for three different vulnerabilities found in the processors powering a vast number of the computing devices we rely on. And while many people are aware that these vulnerabilities exist and that tech companies are doing their best to plug the leaky bits of code, many aren't really clear on what the problems are.

Although there are two names out there, Spectre and Meltdown, we are actually dealing with three different vulnerabilities in computer processors.

CVE 2017-5715 & CVE 2017-5753 are described as "Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and direct (for 2017-5715 ) and indirect (for 2017-5753) branch prediction may allow unauthorised disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis". These two flaws that have been collectively branded as Spectre.

Meltdown, or CVE 2017-5754, is similar but allows an attacker to conduct side-channel analysis of the data cache.

You'll notice that all three vulnerabilities talk about a process called speculative execution. This is where a processor carries out a task ahead of it potentially being needed. The Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities make it possible for someone to either manipulate the results of those different speculative operations (where the processor is guessing what to do next) or see the outcomes of the wrong decisions that are tossed away.

With Meltdown "the chip is fooled into loading secured data during a speculation window in such a way that it can later be viewed by an unauthorised attacker".
So, some bad computer code is loaded into a system in such a way as it is executed by the processor and then accessed by the attacker who gets can see data that everyone thought was being run in a secure environment.
In the case of Spectre, it's possible to get a CPU to run computer code from a branch it ordinarily would discard. And this has some potentially nasty consequences.

#GDPR - Can #Vulnerability Scanning Help?

As part of the new GDPR rules there is potential for huge fines to be issued in the event of a data breach. This includes breaches that occur through web & network vulnerabilities. Testing your network and applications for vulnerabilities on a regular basis strongly mitigates that risk of exploitation.
