It would be wonderful to be two places at once. There are plenty of times when the overwhelming demands of a job or life simply seem like too much for one person to handle. When it comes to IT security, centralized management of both Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) can help ease time constraints and make tasks on different clouds easier to accomplish.

Introducing the PA-220R Next-Generation Firewall—Ruggedized and Ready

Needless to say, cybersecurity can be a tough environment in which to operate. For many professionals, it is not uncommon to be working with industrial assets that are located in harsh environments that have been, or are being modernized as part of an OT digital transformation initiative. 

While the automation piece to these environments may be cutting-edge, provisions for cybersecurity are lagging, leaving organizations exposed. Given the rising threat landscape for ICS/SCADA and the simultaneously tightening regulatory landscape, where even the most remote sites may be subject to cybersecurity laws, this could not continue.

What is your multi-cloud strategy? Today it is not uncommon for organizations to be running a mix of public infrastructure as a service (IaaS) environments, such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. In fact, a recent study concluded that one-third of the world’s companies are using four or more cloud vendors in their day-to-day operations.

Developing a Cybersecurity Protocol

Posted by Fuel HQ on Jan 24, 2018 4:05:26 PM

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Cybersecurity threats come at a rapid pace these days—or so it seems. That leaves security professionals with very little room for error and the need to eliminate uncertainty in the process.

Here’s where protocol becomes your best friend; a clear progression of steps to take in the face of an immediate threat. Better yet, Fuel volunteer Paul Carter asks, can that protocol be standardized across organizations? He believes so and, in response, developed the DDIVE Model –which stands for Detect, Design, Implement, Validate, Establish. A security-focused response to incidents that will ensure viable options are considered, implemented and documented, DDIVE is designed to be adaptable and repeatable.

3 Strategies for Faster Threat Detection and Response

Posted by Fuel HQ on Jan 9, 2018 10:51:53 AM

Tuseday, January 9, 2018

The ability to detect an attack and respond to it quickly can be the difference between a minor incident and a breach that costs resources and reputation. The good news is that organizations are making strides in security breach detection, according to the 2017 Trustwave Global Security Report, which examines the results of thousands of investigations into security incidents. 

When looking at incidents in 2016, the median time from intrusion to detection of a compromise fell to 49 days, down from 80.5 days in 2015. As tools such as managed security service (MSS) providers and artificial intelligence are more widely developed and deployed, the median time between intrusion and detection could fall even further this year.

Here are three strategies to consider when looking to improve detection and response before threats take root and cause damage.
