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.

Posted by Peter Lunk on May 25, 2017

Over 350,000 of the world’s top 1 million web sites may be running vulnerable software --  which the recent WannaCry cyber attack has shown can spell considerable risk of hacker exploitation. According to the Menlo Security State of The Web report, software on some web sites dates back to over a decade ago, as far back as the year 2000.

I just spent a week in several new geographical markets for Menlo Security, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, meeting and talking to new and existing customers.
