OpenC2 – Standards for Faster Response to Security Incidents

Recently, I came across a rather new and interesting standardization initiative, driven by the NSA (U.S. National Security Agency) and several industry organizations, both Cyber Defense software vendors and system integrators.

Follow-Up on “Managing the User's Consent Life Cycle: Challenges, GDPR Compliance and (Business) Rewards.”

The GDPR continues to be a hot topic for many organizations, especially for those who store and process customer data.

Don’t Fall Victim to Ransomware (Links to Free Tools)

Ransomware attacks have increased in popularity, and many outlets predict that it will be a $1 billion-dollar business this year.  Ransomware is a form of malware that either locks users’ screens or encrypts users’ data, demanding that ransom be paid for the return of control or for decryption keys.  Needless to say, but paying the ransom only emboldens the perpetrators and perpetuates the ransomware problem.  Ransomware is not just a home user problem, in fact many businesses and government agencies have been hit.  Healthcare facilities have been...
