Marc Blackmer, Product Marketing Manager, Industry Solutions, Security Business Group, Cisco, shared with us, “We at Cisco are fully committed to the IoT, and we believe the IoT must be secured for its promise to be realized. Securing the IoT is easier said than done, though. The first complication is that most IoT devices can’t protect themselves. To be fair, there are a number of reasons why they can’t, but from a cybersecurity perspective, those reasons don’t matter. A vulnerability is a vulnerability is a vulnerability. And these vulnerabilities create ample opportunities for an attacker to exploit those devices and gain access to your network.“  More


• Cyberinc, CEO, Samir Shah

Samir Shah, CEO, Cyberinc, told us, "Isla represents an entirely new approach to cyber security.  Until now security solutions have always been based on detecting “bad things” and blocking them from running. Anti-Virus tries to detect “bad files”, Web Filters try to detect “bad websites”, the list goes on and on. Isla takes a different approach to the problem. Instead of detecting “bad” things, Isla simply isolates ALL web content in a specialized environment located outside of an organizations sensitive network.  Since ALL content is isolated no attacks can ever “slip through the cracks” and compromise the user. This is a simple, yet powerful approach. Since organizations vary so widely, Isla is offered in a number of ways to suit each potential customers’ needs. Isla can be deployed as an appliance directly at a customers’ office, it can be deployed in a customers’ existing cloud data centers or it can be delivered as a pure Cloud service by a Cyberinc Isla Cloud Service partner.  More "

Extenua has just released a most timely white paper…

This free white paper discusses the challenges of keeping ransomware (Cryptolocker, WannaCry, and the like) out of the corporate data storage, whether it is local, in the cloud or hybrid.


“Ransomware is a type of malware that restricts access to the infected computer system, and demands that the user pay a ransom to the malware operators to remove the restriction. Probably the most famous ransomware, even though not the only one, is Cryptolocker, and it’s certainly something you don’t want to deal with. Regardless of the strenuous efforts put in place by Antivirus developers, the rate of infection is astonishing, and these days it’s becoming even worse with an unprecedented outbreak of infection. To make things even worse, ransomware can also access all the shared folders on your NAS/SAN, so if you backup to a network drive your backups will be compromised too. The ransomware goals include, in fact, preventing you from being able to restore your old (healthy) data from a backup.”

“Even in case your systems are infected by a ransomware,
you will simply be able to format your computer,
reinstall your operating system,
and restore all your data from an always-healthy backup.”

Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO, ImageWare Systems, OTCQB: IWSY, told us, “With data breaches happening every day and causing damage to your brand, tangible economic loss, and termination of employment for executive management charged with oversight, enhancing security without compromising user experience is a priority for today’s organizations. Multi-modal biometrics for user authentication handles this requirement and that’s what ImageWare does. We have invested substantial time and effort into making the implementation of biometric security simple, quick, and cost-efficient.  Being a pioneer in biometrics, with several decades of experience, ImageWare has built its brand through deployments in law enforcement applications, later migrating to secure biometric credentialing, and more recently, to authentication in the cloud using smart mobile devices. At the heart of all of our product offerings is the patented IWS Biometric Engine® (BE), which provides an ultra-scalable, real-time, multi-modal biometric enrollment and matching database specifically built for biometrics. The BE supports a dozen different biometric modalities today and adding new modalities is simple and straight forward. As we say, “we secure your future,” meaning that we not only satisfy your current security requirements, but we also secure your investment as new biometric technology becomes available.  We treat biometrics as “plug and play,” so you can take advantage of new advancements with no loss to your current investment.” More

• NetWatcher, CEO, Scott B. Suhy

Scott Suhy, CEO, NetWatcher, told us,"On May 12th, 2017 the WanaCry (or WCry, WannaCry, WannaCrypt, WanaCrypt0r 2.0, Wanna Decryptor) ransomware was unleashed and caused over 75,000 attacks in 99 countries.

How Does the WanaCry Ransomware Work?

The Ransomware initially entered organizations via a phishing email message and then exploited a vulnerability (MS17-010) in Windows to spread within a network locking down computers and asking victims to pay $300 via Bitcoin.  The Windows vulnerability was leaked as part of the NSA Shadow Brokers hack and Microsoft soon after released a patch however many computers were not yet updated at the time of the attack.

What Should I do?  What do NetWatcher Customers do?

Customer’s first need to ensure they are not vulnerable to the attack:   NetWatcher Managed Detection & Response customers leverage a built-in vulnerability scanner that periodically scans their environment for vulnerabilities.   If the customer was vulnerable to the new ransomware they would have seen the vulnerability titled “SMBv1 Unspecified Remote Code Execution (Shadow Brokers)” show up in their reports as a high severity issue and warned that they needed to patch the Windows asset.

US/Canada Border Conference

How Technology is Shaping Border Management

12 - 13 September 2017

Detroit, MI

The US/Canada Border Conference brings together border security leadership from the U.S. and Canada to provide an educational experience designed to help advance your agency’s mission. The conference is developed by former border security officials who understand the educational needs of today’s border security professionals. 

This two-day event, focused on advancing the Beyond the Border Action Plan, is strategically located in Detroit, Michigan, near several of the busiest shared ports between the United States and Canada. The “Beyond the Border” initiative outlines a vision for perimeter security and economic competitiveness whereby the U.S. and Canada work in partnerships within, at, and away from our borders to achieve enhanced security and accelerate the legitimate flow of people, goods, and services between our two countries.

The United States and Canada bilateral relationship is among the closest and most extensive in the world. Each day, $2.0 billion of cross-border trade is conducted between the U.S. and Canada. 300,000 people cross between the countries every day by all modes of transport. The two nations work cooperatively on border security, law enforcement, environmental protection and free trade on multiple levels from federal, to state and provincial, to local.


World e-ID and Cybersecurity
Digital Identity & Data Protection for Citizens & Businesses
Conference & Exhibition - Sept. 25-27, 2017 – Marseille Provence, France

Now in its 13th edition, World e-ID and Cybersecurity explores the latest secure identification technologies, their implementation and the related online trust challenges. Over 2.5 days, 400 project managers, government reps and technology experts will join in to learn, share visions with counterparts worldwide and foster cooperation for successful secure Identity & Cybersecurity implementations.
From printed documents to the identity of connected objects, the  agenda will deliver a clear vision of secure identification as boundaries are blurring between physical and online ID, between private and public sector cybersecurity, between citizen and consumer online trust. Within Smart Security Week, additional learning, networking and innovation discovery events are also part of the agenda: exhibition & demos, workshops & tutorials, awards ceremony… along with multiple bridges with the co-located conferences addressing identity for development, IoT security, cyberthreat intelligence and risk management.


Identity World
Individual Recognition for Global Development
Conference & Exhibition - Sept. 25-27, 2017 – Marseille Provence, France

IDENTITY WORLD is the new conference on how trusted technologies address the state of the individual identity and its contribution to global development. An estimated 1.5 billion people do not have an official, government issued and recognized document as proof of their legal identity. The majority of these people live in Asia and Africa and a disproportionate number are women and children.

IDENTITY WORLD has set out to address this identity gap through the collective lens of our cultures, experiences, understanding and resources. Complementing its sister World e-ID and Cybersecurity conference till now, both the intensity of discussion and diversity of subject matter has lent itself to become in 2017 a separate space in the realm of public discourse.

Over 2.5 days, 40 speakers will address thoroughly the strategic framework stakes along key themes including: Statelessness & Inclusion • Civil Registration and Vital Statistics • Public & Private Sector Cooperation • Digital Identity, Democracy & Peace.
Thought leadership insights will be illustrated by case studies of large-scale implementations (identity, e-vote, healthcare, welfare payments…) as well as industry and technology perspectives. Multiple panel discussions are scheduled to ensure maximum interactivity.
