6 Core Competencies You Need When Starting a Business Intelligence (BI) Solution

Author: Nicholas Varner, Big Data Senior Solution Architect If your company stores large amounts of data, it surely would benefit from implementing a BI solution.

Building a Risk-Driven Information Security Management Program

Over the past few years, external threats have increased significantly through the birth of hacktivism, a rise in Cyberwarfare activities, increases in computer theft, and spread of malicious software.  In the same span of time, we have experienced a boom in new technologies like social media, mobile devices, and cloud services.  Although these technologies provide great promise for reduced costs, increased productivity, and new business functionality, they also introduce serious vulnerabilities that must be mitigated.  All of these threats, and the security controls used to mitigate these threats, must be managed through an Information Security Management Program (ISMP); otherwise, the impact of security controls to the overall security posture of the organization may be diminished.  A good ISMP ensures the most optimum use ...

Chinese HACKERS attack U.S

By now everyone has read the news about Chinese Hackers infiltrating U.S government websites. Unfortunately this has been happening for years.  Prior to these attacks there were instances where Chinese hackers attacked the U.S for fun and profit and U.S hackers have targeted China in the past due to their political stances on varying agendas primarily their views on human rights or lack there of. Why is this such news now?  The main reason is it seems that the attacks are more military targeted than any previous attacks.  The Chinese seem to blame the U.S for instigating these attacks because of the established United States Cyber Command Center.  They see this as an open invite it’s the you spy we spy mentality obviously whats good for us must also be good for the Chinese.  Ultimately what all this comes down to ...

Approaching the Mobile Experience in a CMS Project (CQ5)

Two main points: It’s not about what the CMS is capable of doing; its more about what the business wants to achieve. A good CMS Technical Architect (TA) can draw that out early. If you don’t plan for mobile delivery upfront you might pay for it in the long run. Commentary: I have had several project managers and in-house technical architects ask mobile objective questions relatively late in the project life-cycle. First off, it is difficult to retroactively adhere to some of these mobile techniques in CQ5 that are outlined by Adobe in their documentation and presentations. The key word is retroactively. Typically these are foundational business objectives to “mobilize the CQ site”. There are 2 dominant ... READ MORE

RIM's Blackberry Isn't Dead Yet

By Scott Anthony  Asian Operations Leader, Innosight. Via Harvard Business Review It has been a rough few years for Research in Motion, the maker of the Blackberry line of mobile devices. Since Apple entered the mobile phone market, RIM’s financial situation has deteriorated and its market capitalization has plummeted by almost 95 percent since its mid-2008 peak of more than $100 billion. The company has brought in new leaders, but most pundits assume that the game is already over, and that it’s just a matter of time before we write RIM’s obituary. Yet in September RIM reported that its subscriber base had grown to 80 million from 78 million. The company’s market share is still decreasing, but companies on death’s d ... READ MORE

Hackers obtain 3.6 million Social Security numbers & Unencrypted Credit Cards

Hackers were not only able to steal 3.6 million social security numbers, but they managed to steal an additional 16000 unencrypted credit card numbers. The hacker first attacked the system in August. This goes to show that many enterprises out there can be compromised for months and not even know it yet. This is why we always recommend a full recognizance of an enterprises network, and resources including all applications, and 3rd party connections. The fact that the credit card numbers on the server were in the clear shows a huge lack of security insight and potentially means that there are many other major security issues within that particular environment. Encrypting sensitive data properly is application security 101 and the fact that these things happen all the time shows exactly why enterprises like these need to proactively monitor ... READ MORE

Wells Fargo Disrupted by Cyber Attack

Wells Fargo was reportedly attacked in the efforts of making a political statement these attacks amounted to the average DDoS(Distributed Denial of Service) attack that have been going on for years. The attack usually originates from outside the country of the attacking systems and are carried on by a botnet. A botnet is hundreds, and some times thousands of systems configured to carry out the same trivial routines in hopes that the distributed efforts of these systems would disrupt access to the victims servers in the form of over utilized bandwidth or a concentrated attack to a particular server function or service.  Properly programmed firewalls typically play the first role of defense in these types of attacks, but now new problems arise that carry old consequences and this is due to the ever changing landscape of online self ser ...

Apple Security Team at Blackhat

Apple had a ninja like appearance at Blackhat and I say ninja because they left almost as quick as they came. They have managed to avoid the security conference for 15 years and when they finally decided to attend their briefings seemed to be nothing more than regurgitated snip-lets from old documents and RFC’s the talk itself compared to the other Blackhat talks like “Owning bad guys {and mafia} with javascript botnets” was uninspired and did not go into any real deep detail on iOS security, and the future of how iOs will handle different security issues with that being said the Apple security team did not even stay for the after lecture Q&A session they side shuffled out a side door n ...

Yahoo Passwords Hacked

Yahoo fails to perform proper Application Security Auditing which leads to Yahoo Email being Hacked Yahoo email services was hacked by a group calling itself “D33D” over 450,000 emails were compromised. The hackers used an SQL injection attack to gain access an older password file on Yahoo’s system. The passwords in this file apparently were not salted just like Linked-In. SQL injection exploits the ability for an attacker to input SQL commands into a query and have them execute because there is no validation. I noticed no other content about this hack really shows how it was done so consider the following SQL query within the following URL http://mail.hackedsite.com/index.asp?id=10 UNION SELECT TOP 1 password FROM admin_login where login_name=’y@hoogle’— This will attempt to use an ...

Military enlists Invincea to beef up Android security

The military is beefing up security on Android based smart devices and has even issued a grant for $21 million dollars this enhances security around data as it sits at rest on these devices. A few things that need to be considered that I have not seen mentioned in these efforts is how the integrity of data from these devices will be managed in transit. It’s one thing to secure data once it’s on a device it’s another thing to ensure and validate data once it leaves the device. One must consider the critical nature of this content especially as it is being used in a military setting. Are the proper protocols in place to secure encrypt and encapsulate data as it being delivered from one device to another?
