Vulnerabilities in certain medication infusion pump products from manufacturer Baxter could compromise a hospital's biomedical network. The flaws highlight the risks involving the acquisition and disposal of medical technology, says researcher Deral Heiland of Rapid7.
Cyber attackers have skills well beyond traditional information technology (IT) intrusions
and data exfiltration techniques—and they have set their sights on operating technology
(OT) environments. They have demonstrated an understanding of industrial control
systems (ICSs) and have an impressive ability to...
A global, integrated oil and gas company operating across five continents is using digital
transformation to grow its business, enter new markets and be more competitive. Critical
to this effort is a cloud-based digitalization initiative to enable advanced analytics and
decision-making, fueling greater efficiency,...
Eighty percent of survey respondents say they either are well on the way or getting started toward becoming a "smart manufacturing company." Cloud migration, business resiliency and securing OT environments are among their priorities. Del Rodillas of Palo Alto Networks analyzes the survey results.
While there are many solutions that claim to simplify certificate lifecycle management, not all of
them are built to address the unique complexities of today’s expansive and distributed digital
When evaluating a certificate management solution, it is important to look for
key capabilities that...
Researchers at the security firm Netlab have identified a previously undocumented botnet dubbed "Matryosh" that is targeting vulnerable Android devices to help build its network so it can conduct distributed denial-of-service attacks.
Based on real-world experience and research, this whitepaper shares insights into five of the most dangerous and common IaaS configuration mistakes that could expose your public cloud computing environment to a worst-case security scenario. These are:
Early hacked administrative credentials
The report tabulates the responses to the survey and draws conclusions as to how best practices are reflected in observed practices, as well as the influence of cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and other important industry trends. All participants in this research are either involved in the management of their...
Attacks through third parties are even more prevalent, which jeopardizes not only the security of sensitive data, but it also provides attack vectors for hackers to take down critical systems via IoT, unauthorized access, etc. Supply chain systems are an integral part of the oil and gas industry’s survival and bad...
Cybersecurity has long been a
challenge across industries. Now that
most organizations are firmly in the age
of digital transformation, protecting
against threats is increasingly complex
but also crucial to shield against
financial and reputational damage.
With hybrid infrastructures accommodating
The convergence of IoT and OT provides a unique opportunity for
a stronger and more resilient infrastructure, whilst
increasing flexibility and responsiveness to new situations.
This needs to be well-managed to ensure the systems are
robust and the risks fully managed, and to maintain an
equivalent level of...
A critical component within millions of consumer and enterprise IoT devices has dangerous software flaws. New research from Forescout Technologies into open-source TCP-IP stacks shows millions of devices from 150 vendors are likely vulnerable.
