This week, Facebook announced details about its cryptocurrency project, Libra. They expect it to go live for Facebook and other social media platform users sometime in 2020.

In a single decade, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) have evolved from a purely technical concept into one of the foundations of modern digital business, delivering operational efficiency, scalability and profitability to companies from various industries. Nowadays, everything is API-enabled: corporate data is the product and APIs are the logistics of delivering it to customers and partners.

Getting Rid of the Password – How to Increase Safety Affordably

Despite compromised passwords being the leading cause of data breaches, most online businesses still rely on solely using passwords for logins. While getting rid of password authentication is desirable from a security standpoint, organizations fear that it is a costly endeavor that can also affect user experience.

API Security in Microservices Architectures

Microservice-based architectures allow businesses to develop and deploy their applications in a much more flexible, scalable and convenient way – across multiple programming languages, frameworks and IT environments. Like with any other new technology that DevOps and security teams started to explore in the recent years, there is still quite a lot of confusion about the capabilities of new platforms, misconceptions about new attack vectors and renewed discussions about balancing security with the pace of innovation. And perhaps the biggest myth of microservices is that their security...

Cybersecurity Pen-Tests: Time to Get Smart About Testing?

One of my favorite stories is of a pen-test team who were brought in and situated next door to the SOC (Security Operations Centre); and after a week on-site they were invited for a tour of the SOC where they queried a series of alarms [that they had obviously caused] only to be told “oh that’s normal, we’ve been getting these continuously all week”. People perform penetration tests (pen-tests) for a multitude of reasons; “I inherited a budget with an annual pen-test” or “it’s required by the audit committee” are the most common....

M&A Activity in Cybersecurity and IAM

It seems almost every week in cybersecurity and IAM we read of a large company buying a smaller one. Many times, it is a big stack vendor adding something that may be missing to their catalog, or buying a regional competitor. Sometimes it’s a medium-sized technology vendor picking up a promising start-up. In the olden days (15+ years ago), start-ups hoped for going IPO. IPOs are far less common today. Why? Mostly because it’s an expensive, time-consuming process that doesn’t achieve the returns it once did. Many times, going IPO was an interim step to getting acquired by a...

Fine-Tuning ICS Threat Models to Prioritize Mitigations of the Most Vulnerable Devices

When discussing the matters of industrial cybersecurity with IT experts, lamenting the historical divide between OT and IT seems to be a popular topic: you would often hear that the OT engineers are stubbornly ignoring the latest cyberthreats and do not see security as a priority in general.

Whitepaper: Radiant Logic and the Identity Integration Imperative - 80075

Digital transformation and the need for business agility are creating an explosion in the volume, variety and velocity of identity data that enterprises have to manage efficiently. And now regulators have sharply increased the liability of enterprises for assuring that identity data is safeguarded, only accessed appropriately, and accurate. An integrated identity capability can be the key to meeting both challenges.

Leverage Enterprise Architecture to Achieve GDPR Compliance

Several measures have been undertaken by Organizations at various levels to comply with GDPR, most of which remain reactive, fragmented and largely ad-hoc. These controls are also not continuous in nature and therefore fail to satisfy ongoing compliance requirements. Organizational leaders (CISOs, CIOs, CDPOs or CROs) felt the need for better data controls that should be baked into organizational processes to ensure compliance by design.
