It has become nearly impossible for everyone to live an anonymous life on the internet. No one can imagine how much they are vulnerable and to what extent their personal information is available on the internet (Chaum, 2016). Everyone has to face privacy issues as the marketers keep on gathering information about individuals in order to run their business and cater to new customers. [Read more…]
5 Interesting Developments In The Iot World
The internet of things is a system of interrelated computing devices, people, objects, mechanical devices that provide two benefits. The first one is that it requires unique identifiers (UIDs) and the second one is that it helps to transfer the data over a network without any interference of anyone. The technology is emerging immensely that it has IoT to put forward its contributions as well by making amazing developments that are as follows (Fan & Chen, 2017): [Read more…]
Why Should A User Have An Adaptive Defense?
With the progressing field of information technology, network attacks are also something that has grabbed everybody’s attention. The network attacks have been increased due to which the developers have to introduce systems or methods which will help in detecting these attacks. Based on the principle of Adaptive Defense, Panda has developed a security suite and it is known as Panda Adaptive Defense. It operates on the basis of four principles. The first principle is prevention, detection and response. It is applicable for both the malware and malware-less attacks. The second principle is real-time and historical visibility. It not only detects the threats rather it also provides detailed information about all the actions that are taken in order to trace that threat (Panda Security SL (ES), 2015). The third principle is that it provides 100% classification of processes. They follow this principle by detecting threats using machine language and the malware experts as well. The last principle is threat hunting and forensic analysis. As it is an advanced cybersecurity system so it detects or hunts the future threats as well and after that, the analysis is performed by the expert analysts. [Read more…]
Cloud computing & Cybersecurity: The changing trends
Cloud Computing and Cybersecurity is slowly becoming one with each other. Without the latter, the former isn’t feasible.
A simple way to describe Cloud computing is that it’s the delivery of on-demand computing services through the means of internet, basically using someone elses computing power. It is used to deliver the processing power needed to run applications, storage of files or processing requests. Generally, to a person that needs those services, but lack the required infrastructure. It was storage that Cloud computing was initially famous for. (Rossi, B. 2017)
Now, let us see some trends that are quickly changing in Cloud Computing and Cyber Security. [Read more…]
Information Security: 6 things to keep in mind when writing data protection policies
A comprehensive definition of Information Security is: ‘Information security is a set of strategies for managing the processes, tools and policies necessary to prevent, detect, document and counter threats to digital and non-digital information’. (Rouse, 2016)
One needs to establish a set of business processes that ensures the safety of the information assets. It does not matter how information is being formatted, whether it is in transition phase or is stored at a single place. The responsibility includes every kind of information that is related to you or your company and its relations. Information Security or Infosec programs are based on CIA triad objectives: maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and availability of IT systems and business data. (Rouse, 2016) [Read more…]
Machine Learning & Artificial Perception: Antidotes to Online Threats
Technology has changed the way we perceive things and work. It has made things possible which were inconceivable a century ago. Tedious tasks that seemed tiresome and no one wanted to be the one doing it, are now piece of cake. Huge amount of data now can be processed, stored and analyzed through the use of latest innovations. But like any new invention and innovation, the facilities do come with their own sets of problems. (Dickson, 2016) [Read more…]
Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data – What’d Be The Connection?
Talking about the technology, everything now seems a cliché. Same goes for Internet of Things and Big Data for some time now. The connection between IoT and Big Data become obvious when we see tons of data being transmitted through Internet of Things on daily basis. This data is being used to run analysis, to help develop a pattern and trends and bring positive changes in our lives. Let us start by first learning a little about Big Data and IoT. [Read more…]
