Commentary and Opinions

By Kirk Spring As we’ve seen by recently reported hacks of healthcare networks, security breaches are becoming commonplace. Attacks on secure networks can come from internal or external sources. “Breach prevention” is no longer a workable strategy.
Washington, March 18 – The National Retail Federation has presented Congress with practical, commonsense and achievable solutions to better protect consumers and help businesses prevent cyberattacks and data breaches.“We should not be satisfied with simply determining what to do after a data breach occurs,” NRF senior vice president for Government Relations David French said. “Instead, it is important to look at why such breaches occur and what the perpetrators get out of them so that we can find ways to reduce and prevent not only the breaches themselves but the follow-on harm.”
By Nimrod LuriaPolice and FBI are investigating defacement attacks on numerous North American websites in which attackers placed an ISIS flag banner on website home pages and played an Arabic song in the background, as reported by NBC News.The sites appear to have one thing in common: they are all built on the WordPress content management platform.
By Fraser ThomasLast week the US Congress began the process of making President Obama’s State of the Union address, where he focused on ways to secure the nation's businesses and infrastructure in cyberspace, a reality.On Wednesday two House members reintroduced a bill requiring companies to meet a specific set of data security standards when handling customers’ personal information.
