OpenSSL released a fix for Heartbleed as soon as the vulnerability made headlines. Even so, more than a year and a half later, more than 200,000 devices had not received the patch.
There's a type of programming that dates back to the 1970s, and it's proven itself to make the lives of hackers much more difficult.

It’s clear that cybersecurity is no longer solely in the domain of IT departments—it’s a business-critical part of an organization. This was most evident in the aftermath of the Sony hack, as employees found it impossible to do their day-to-day jobs due to the depth of the breach.
Cybersecurity has become a board level discussion, and worries about a data breach is part of what keeps C-suite execs and BOD members up at night.

Mr. Robot is a rare thing when it comes to cybersecurity, a TV show that not only ‘gets it’ (at all) but by general consensus more often than not actually gets it right in a lot of places, too.

On June 7, 2016, the Angler exploit kit all of a sudden disappeared. It’s unclear exactly what led to Angler’s demise, but all reports indicate the exploit kit shut down after Russian authorities arrested 50 members of a hacker group that developed Lurk malware along with Angler.

As it is easier and quicker to use credit cards, it has also become riskier these days as attackers can gain your identity and credit/debit card information to make purchases. Often times these attackers make money by selling items on eBay or Craigslist that were purchased with your card. Being proactive to secure your credit and debit cards is, therefore, critical.
It is very important to take proactive steps to safeguard your wallet against fraud and prevent your credit and debit cards from getting compromised.

In the US, there is a shortage of some 209,000 cybersecurity jobs according to a January 2016 article in Forbes magazine. Postings for cybersecurity jobs are up 74% over the past five years. Demand is expected to rise to the point where in 2019, there will be a shortfall of some 1.5 million jobs...
With a more nimble education system, shifting resources to create or expand “centers of excellence” focused on cybersecurity training would be much easier.

Do you remember the .Zepto Ransomware? Of course, you do. Well, you can more or less put it in the rear-view mirror. However, there is very little in the way of actual reasons for celebration. A new threat is on the rise! It’s been tentatively called .Odin File Virus. It changes your files’ extensions to match the name of the one-eyed god from the Norse Mythology.

On Sept. 14, New York State governor Andrew Cuomo announced new regulations for all financial and insurance firms that conduct business in New York State. These new regulations are currently under review through October, but if accepted in their current form, they go beyond anything that has previously been promulgated in the cyber world.
As we start to understand the subtle differences between tampered, not breached, we elevate the entire InfoSec profession.

Technology analysts are divided on the notion of a “smart” city. On the one hand, proponents note that by creating “smart” systems to run public transportation, waste removal, traffic control, and the water system, cities can improve the efficiency of their municipal services.
Can a targeted digital attack against a smart city disrupt municipal services and threaten public safety? Tripwire's survey helps answer that question.
