How Isolation Would Have Stopped The Russian Election Cyberattacks

Posted by Jay Kelley on Jul 19, 2018

Regardless of the political fall-out from Special Counsel Robert J. Mueller’s indictment of twelve Russian intelligence operatives for tampering with the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, this much seems clear after reading the 29-page, John LeCarre-like document: It has become unreasonable to expect any organization to successfully defend against such a massive, coordinated cyberattack.

 A New Approach to End Typosquatting

Posted by Jay Kelley on Feb 13, 2018

 

 “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci

 

This quote even holds true when it comes to cyber threats.

 

While experts discuss the impending battle royal between cybersecurity, and attackers and hackers, focusing in on “good AI” vs. “evil AI” in an ever-escalating, highly-sophisticated cyber arms race, it’s sometimes the simplest of threats – and mistakes – that can be the most dangerous and frustrating.

For Feds, DMARC is a Start, But More is Needed

Posted by Jay Kelley on Nov 9, 2017

 

Last month, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security directed federal agencies to begin employing enhanced security methods and protocols on all government email accounts. This action is an effort to halt the impersonation of U.S. government email domains, referred to as spoofing, by attackers intent on deploying a dizzying array of cyber attacks typically initiated by a phishing campaign. Given that many reports place the start of a cyber attack squarely on phishing campaigns—some reports place the figure at over 90% of cyberattacks are as the result of phishing—it makes sense that the DHS would require greater email security for federal government email accounts and inboxes.

Posted by Jay Kelley on Nov 7, 2017

If you are in the financial services community, you are likely well-aware of and well-acquainted with SWIFT and the services it performs. As a quick primer for the uninitiated, SWIFT is an acronym for the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, a cooperative built over forty years ago by banks and financial institutions globally to address a mutual problem: A better, more secure, and automated way to communicate inter-bank payments across borders. SWIFT addressed this common issue, and today, it is a world-leading provider of secure messaging services for over 11,000 banks, financial organizations, and enterprises in over 200 countries.
