Commentary and Opinions

When it comes to cybersecurity, boldface security organizations can seem just as susceptible to hacks as anyone else. For example, NATO suffered over 2,500 significant cyber attacks in 2012 alone. Security experts believe that the number of sophisticated offensives against NATO is likely to increase over the coming years.
Unfortunately, none of us has any trouble imagining a security breach. Breaches are so frequent these days, so fast and so clever, that seemingly out of nowhere we could find critical infrastructure threatened, networks at risk, markets in danger.
You approach the scene, taking the first steps to determining what happened and how to prevent it in the future. Following your training, you secure the area, conduct a scan of the scene, take photos to maintain a permanent record of the scene as you found it, and begin collecting and evaluating physical evidence.
With new technologies -- such as virtualization, cloud computing and mobility -- come new threats to IT systems. The sophistication of those threats -- both internal and external -- has become a major concern for the federal government. In fact, cyber security is among the top priorities for the White House and Congress as evidenced by recent legislation and initiatives aimed at protecting sensitive data and intelligence, including health and personally identifiable information.
In our increasingly digital world, our nation’s information security is just as important as its physical security. With President Obama declaring that cyber threats are “one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation,” all areas of government are under increasing pressure to develop a proactive and comprehensive IT defense strategy.

Abstract:

Network Access Control and 802.1x - Advantages, Constraints and Capabilities

Written by distinguished security industry analyst Pete Lindstrom of Spire Security

The industry has been blurring the differences between 802.1x and NAC. Some believe that 802.1x is sufficient and similar enough to a full NAC solution to start down the path of implementation. What organizations often find is that the 802.1x story seems fairly simple and easy, but the deployment is much more difficult. This paper examines the fully 802.1x and NAC details such as:

    * What is 802.1x?
    * What important features are missing from 802.1x?
    * What alternatives exist to 802.1x and why?
    * What are the hidden costs associated with rolling out NAC?
    * How can commercial enterprises and government organizations benefit from NAC?
