The year is ending with a cybersecurity bang - not whimper - due to the widespread prevalence of the Apache Log4j vulnerability. Researchers warn that at least 40% of corporate networks have been targeted by attackers seeking to exploit the flaw. More than 250 vendors have already issued security advisories.
Hellman Worldwide Logistics, one of the world's biggest logistics and shipping firms, is warning that its operations remain disrupted following an online attack of unspecified nature. The attack comes amid a busy season for e-commerce and shipping, with supply lines already stretched thin, experts say.
The banking and finance sector is changing. While digital transformation brings opportunities, it also brings challenges around cybersecurity and data protection. Threat modeling meets these challenges, providing fast, scalable security and risk analysis, tailored to your business' unique needs.
The fundamental basis of threat modeling is identifying, communicating and managing security weaknesses. The key principle underpinning threat modeling is “secure design” which means in practice addressing design flaws. Ideally threat modeling activities will take place from the inception of the project at the...
Applications aren't the only iterative processes that today's developers have to contend with. Security has become of prime importance to organisations and their end users, with some teams finding that they're having to wrestle between speed and security to get the job done. It doesn't have to be this way. In this...
