Security threat intelligence is vital, but challenging to implement, says Joshua Goldfarb,chief security officer, enterprise forensics group, FireEye.

“The concept is simple, but it can be operationally difficult to do,” he told Computer Weekly.

The combined knowledge of many is always going to be more powerful than the knowledge of any single organisation, but there are challenges to realising the real benefits, said Goldfarb.

First, if an organisation is to benefit from intelligence about the types of activity it should be looking out for, that process has to be integrated into the security workflow.

“Security intelligence should never be isolated, but used to generate alerts that are fed into the security workflow like any other alerts,” said Goldfarb.

Second, security intelligence is a “predatory field”, and while there is a growing number of organisations that claim to provide security intelligence, not all these services are equal, he said.

According to Goldfarb, many simply provide “security information”. But that is not the same as “security intelligence”, which includes context of what that data means, what it relates to and how it can be used.

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.
