Re: Stalking the intruder
@yalanand interesting point... as this days many Co. do not want to spend... keep relaying on old approach toward security... keep stepping on the old rake... sad reality of down turn economy...

Re: Keeping up with the Hackers

Susan I completely agree. It's getting to a point that people expect breaches it's very sad. I hate to over regulate but I think if fines were levied against companies for security breaches that were a result of their negligence it might speed up security efforts at some organizations.

Re: Stalking the intruder
I think Windows 10 would come with a better protection from hackers because Microsoft has had us quite hyped up about the facilities it will be providing and the support base it has promised to establish sinec the support team for windows 8 was just terrible.

Re: Stalking the intruder
@yalanand: I agree with you on this one. Cloud systems offer better management of resources but the extent of security in cloud is wavering into a blurry line because security systems in cloud are just, plain, bad. Companies that have taken upto the cloud have their own team facilitating security for their utilities, and in the process investing millions of dolalrs in cloud security. I think in 2 to 3 years cloud security would come cheaper.

Re: Putin's Kaspersky
@yalanand: No, but companies should screen their employees better, evaluate their mental conditions and keep monitoring suspicious activity, now that might seem intrusive towards the singular privacy of an employee but it is needed to keep whistle blowing and damages in check.

Re: Putin's Kaspersky
@moarsauce123 I don't know how much truth there is to that.  Kaspersky Lab is actually incorporated in the UK, despite having lots of Russian employees, they do lots of work with huge government agencies such as Interpol and Europol.


I agree. There would be diversity in an organisation but that doesn't mean we would frame a being just because of his/her place of origin. This gives birth to false workplace ethics.

Re: Stalking the intruder
Yes, this example of sly and persistent intrusion is alarming. I think we need behavior analytics that learn from routine system ops and recognize an activity that is out of line. 

Even more so these days, since everything is going up into the cloud and cloud as we know has a lingering issue of "safety and security" that still hasn't been solved. Old school identity management is severly backdated.
