In the wee hours of Monday morning, software giant Microsoft launched a new security and threat information exchange platform. The idea is to enable quick communication between cyber security providers.

“Interflow uses industry specifications to create an automated, machine-readable feed of threat and security information that can be shared across industries and groups in near real-time” the company said in a press release.

This latest effort to curtail security threats is an extension of the company’s 2008 Microsoft Active Protections Program, which notifies security software providers of software vulnerabilities. The new platform is one of a number of efforts to ally against cyber security, like the Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center, which allows major retail players like Target and JC Penny to share cyber security threat information.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
