Commentary and Opinions

Fairfax, VA, Jan. 27 - As much as 80 percent of the cyber threats the American public faces today stem from poor or non-existent computer hygiene. U.S. adversaries are using this malady to their strategic advantage and systematically degrading the national infrastructure. They are subverting U.S. economic and military superiority; eroding citizens' confidence in the government's ability to protect and defend the nation; and, ultimately, turning back the clock on American prosperity.
By Wallace Sann, public sector Chief Technology Officer, ForeScout Technologies, Inc.
Washington, DC, December 22 - As many Americans get ready to ring in the New Year, they are also setting goals for health, happiness and professional success in 2016. With the average adult spending more than 11 hours each day connected to electronic media – watching TV, listening to the radio or using smartphones and other connected devices – setting resolutions to safeguard our digital lives is an important and necessary step in our shared responsibility to protect the Internet.[1]
Washington, DC, December 10 - Content theft sites pose a serious and growing threat to Internet users by exposing them to harmful malware that can lead to identity theft, financial loss and computers being taken over by hackers, according to Digital Bait - a new research report commissioned by the Digital Citizens Alliance.
Portland, OR, December 10 - In hoping to never become a breach victim, organizations never prepare for the inevitable breakdown and overlook a very basic solution – capturing and retaining all network data. Cybersecurity equipment is tasked with keeping the bad packets out, but the challenge is how to do this in a fraction of a second. It is a costly folly to expect 100% accuracy, given the minimal time available for inspection. If organizations could gain more time for packet examination, they can turn the tables.
