September 2014- Protecting the government's data is an all-consuming, top priority. As the federal government's data growth continues to spiral, and as the types of data threats and leakage change, data and storage managers have no choice but to be on the front lines of protecting their agencies' data. That means first building a solid data storage and management foundation one that ensures that all data is accounted for at all times and that it's continually backed ...
Why is it that so many web applications are certified to be compliant with a particular standard such as PCI DSS and yet are still compromised? According to data compiled by the DatalossDB project, breaches caused by web applications and web-related flaws comprise 11% of all breaches while another 18% fall into the "hack" category (some of which are likely web application related).
Is the scanner the problem? Is it the auditor? On the other hand, ...
