According to new guidelines issued by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), ransomware incidents in HIPAA regulated organizations are now classified as a data breach. HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that must be followed by any health care provider who transmits health information in electronic form. In America, with the use of electronic medical records, this means just about every health care provider.
In America, with the use of electronic medical records this means just about every health care provider is effected by this update.

In June 2016, researchers at Sucuri Security tracked a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack against one its customers. The campaign consisted of a layer 7 attack (HTTP Flood) that generated 50,000 requests per second (RPS) for several days.
DDoS attacks have been around for decades, but as research illustrates, this type of attack continues to grow in frequency, size, and complexity each year

In the first and second part of this series, we introduced the risks of the IoT / IoE world and addressed the mandatory security design considerations around the C-I-A triplet; the concepts of “openness;” the secure system and SDLC; the 4 “A”s; as well as the term “non-repudiation.” To continue with our overview, we will describe the important concepts of privacy, non-dual-use, defaults, and “human override” before we conclude this concept paper and make a few final suggestions.

With 500,000 expected tourists and 10,500 athletes from all around the world set to descend on Rio for the upcoming summer Olympics, Zika and petty theft are not the only threats visitors will face.

A lot of banks believed they were inherently protected by virtue of being connected within this quasi-holy financial network. Except, they were wrong. And hundreds of millions of dollars have revealed some ugly truths and dangerous assumptions.
It wasn't the typos - it was that attackers had been able to bypass one of the most supposedly secure systems in place, SWIFT, the trusted banking system.

Originally, the idea of a penetration test was to get into a client’s network through bypassing security controls (hence the word penetration). This was aimed at getting domain admin credentials and / or access to specific data – a textbook definition of a Penetration Test if there is such a thing.
I am a Penetration Tester by trade. What does that mean I do in my day-to-day? Well, that depends on whom you ask and is open to interpretation.

Dubbed one of the biggest security concerns ever, the vulnerability appears to be back – this time, targeting iPhones, iPads, iMacs and Macbooks.

Is so, Digital Extremes, the company behind the popular online game for the XBox One, Playstation 4 and PC, has some bad news for you.
