Heartbleed isn’t only an oil spill on the internet and it doesn’t only affect web servers and HTTP traffic. Getting your internal systems patched or protected should be at the top of your to-do list when combatting targeted attacks: http://bit.ly/1et6ZvF

Digitally signing an email is a way of assuring the recipient that the content, while not encrypted, has not been modified in transit, it’s effectively a personal cryptographic certification of the content and attributes of the mail. If the “From:” address is re-written, for example a signed mail is sent to a distribution list and then forwarded on to each of the members of the list with a new “From:” address (usually the address of the list) then the contents will have been modified and the signature will no longer match. The same is true of any content within the mail, if it is intercepted and modified in transit, then the end-user should receive a warning that the signature no longer matches. In a post-PRISM world though, more people are beginning to pay attention to how they can secure their email communication completely from prying eyes. Simply signing will not achieve this, as mails not encrypted – merely “certified” – are still sent in the clear.

Here is a collection of buzzwords to conjure with; Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Consumerisation, Something-as-a-Service, Wearable Tech, Internet of Things. Almost certainly terms you have heard individually before, almost certainly words that each have a different meaning to each of you and doubtless, in isolation, representing major shifts in the technological landscape.
