Enterprise Organizations Are Taking Steps to Improve Cybersecurity Analytics

Last week, online retail giant eBay announced that it was hacked between February and March of this year with stolen login credentials of an eBay employee. This gave the hackers access to the user records of 145 million users including home addresses, e-mail addresses, dates of birth, and encrypted passwords. It appears that the hackers made copies of this data so eBay is advising all users to change their passwords.

Antivirus Software Is Not Quite Dead Yet

In a Wall Street Journal article published earlier this week, Symantec SVP Brian Dye, is quoted as saying that “antivirus is dead.” Dye goes on to proclaim that “we (Symantec) don’t think of antivirus as a moneymaker in any way.”

I beg your pardon, Brian? Isn’t Symantec the market leader? Just what are you saying? In lieu of specific answers to these questions, the blogosphere and Twitter have become a grapevine of rumors – about Symantec, AV, etc. Panic and wild predictions abound. Dogs and cats living together in the streets . . .

Hot Topics at the RSA Conference

It’s the calm before the storm and I’m not talking about the unusual winter weather. Just a few days before the 2014 RSA Security Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

In spite of this year’s controversy over the relationship between the NSA and RSA Security (the company), I expect a tremendous turnout that will likely shatter the attendance records of last year. Cybersecurity issues are just too big to ignore so there will likely be a fair number of first-time attendees.
