  • This week's Black Lists are in the Indicators Channel.
  • Members, we are always looking for quality content for our portal. No rants or political opinions, but if you have followed an identified threat, malware or INFOSEC topic, we would be happy to consider it for posting. Thanks, JIM

  • You have humans on your network. They are all over your network doing all sorts of things with company data. Most of them are doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing. Nothing new to report there but do you know who they all are? Should they have that level of access? Why is someone in accounting downloading 1 TB of data? Did that new salesperson just send the competitors a price list? When is the last time you REALLY did some security awareness training besides that one video you sent 6 months ago?

    Now people are working from home. Who is using this corporate device? Where did this Chromebook come from on the network? We have people working at home from China?

    We have a lot of questions and a lot of work ahead of us as it relates to the human element and Information Security. Some say there is are technical controls we need to put in place. Some say it is merely adopting a company culture shift toward security. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Discover Recover RedXray
