Although outside attacks from bad actors are a real concern, most actually happen from within. Whether intentional or not, they can have lasting, detrimental effects on a business. So, while identity management has never been the star of the show, it’s one of the most important components of a successful security strategy.
Did you know that 34% of data breaches involve internal actors? We spoke with Jared Ablon, HackEDU Founder and President, about security. Jared addresses what you need to do to stay secure while working from home, how hackers use unauthorized access, and more.
The truth is that every business is now a software developer – whether a retailer, bank, transportation, insurer – they are all operating as software companies. If attackers are setting their sights on software as a promising venue for their exploits, then organizations have to close this security gap.
Modern application development, when broken down, isn’t too dissimilar to using toy blocks to build a bridge. For example, to build a secure bridge, it is not sufficient to focus on each brick individually to determine if the bridge is strong enough. The builder must understand the bigger picture, or the ‘architecture.’
What is “Cyber Herd Immunity” and “blind secret processing”? How does a decentralized system prevent vulnerabilities? We spoke with Yuval Hertzog, Co-Founder and Technology Head at the Tide Foundation about security-centric solutions, PRISM authentication, and more.
We spoke to Chris Eng from Veracode about the UA-Parser-JS NPM Open Source library hack. What happened, what was the outcome, and what are unique open source security concerns? Chris Eng gives advice on how we can boost our open source security practices and avoid malicious code.
We’ve had a lot of questions about the state of organizational security lately. Brian Fox addressed our questions and concerns about making sure security and development go hand in hand. What cultural shifts need to happen to ensure that security is baked into every facet?

The importance of the cloud in any disaster recovery strategy is invaluable. The potential ripple effect of a service outage – because of a data breach – could lead to lost revenue, halted productivity and eroded customer trust. With the migration to the cloud, business continuity is now more than just disaster recovery.
