‘From: Dark Reading’

All the tools are in place for the migration of SSL digital certificates on a scale that is unprecedented for the certificate authority industry. Are you ready?

The deadline is fast approaching for organizations to replace Symantec-issued SSL digital certificates, spurred by a Google decision last year to gradually deprecate all Symantec digital certificates because of failures on Symantec’s part to properly validate its SSL certificates before issuance.

Symantec, at the time, characterized Google’s claims as misleading and grossly exaggerated. The company claimed that only 127 certificates were identified as mis-issued and not 30,000. Symantec said that Google was singling it out for blame though the mis-issuance involved multiple certificate authorities (CAs).

A comprehensive new report from Cisco should “scare the pants off” enterprise security leaders

Cisco recently published its 2018 annual cybersecurity report. The study is far more comprehensive than previous surveys and includes threat research from its Talos group and a number of technology partners, along with a survey of 3,600 chief security officers and security operations managers from all over the world. Even more important: the report underscores the need to change the way cybersecurity is done. It should scare the pants off today’s security leaders.

Highlights of the study include four key assertions:

You can’t secure what you can’t see. Here are four ways to shine a light on the dark spaces of your corporate infrastructure.

There’s an axiom used by security professionals that states: “You can’t secure what you can’t see.” This rather simplistic statement actually has many different meanings when it comes to securing a business because of the rapidly growing number of network blind spots that exist in today’s information technology infrastructure.

A combination of culture change, automation, tools and processes can bring security into the modern world where it can be as agile as other parts of IT

DevOps has been a hot topic now for the better part of a half-decade – and IT security has been on fire for longer than that. However, the two disciplines have been going down parallel paths for years, never to meet, because infrastructure teams and application development groups tend to work in their own little silos and claim ignorance as to what they others group does.
