Will the Rise of Digital Media Forgery be the End of Trust?

Technology is reaching a point where it can nearly create fake video and audio content in real-time from handheld devices like smartphones. 


Cybercrime Reaches $1.5 Trillion – Security Must Change

Although not a complete picture, as data can be hard to come by and validate, researchers over at Bromium have estimated cybercrime to reach an unbelievable cost of about $1.5 trillion dollars. Take the numbers with a grain of salt, but the breakdown does give some understanding of the growing problem we face. Even if it were a tenth of this amount, it is enough to bring in flocks of burgeoning criminals to explore how they can get a piece of this pie. For organized criminals, it is worthy of doubling efforts to push this number further, making other illicit avenues of revenue pale in comparison.


Will Reputation Rise as a Measure of Trust?

Trust, security, and ethics are beginning to matter more in the world of business. Cambridge Analytica has reported massive customer abandonment due to persistent negative media coverage and public sentiment around the questionable collection and use of over 87 million personal records harvested from social media. 


5 Ways to Gain an Advantage over Cyber Attackers

Asymmetric attacks, like those in cybersecurity, benefit the aggressor by maintaining the 'combat initiative'. That is, they determine who is targeted, how, when, and where attacks occur. Defenders are largely relegated to preparing and responding to the attacker’s tempo and actions. This is a huge advantage.  


Cybersecurity Fails without Strategy

Building and running a cybersecurity organization is a daunting task and most aren’t doing very well. The brutal reality is that the industry is struggling. Even as gains are made in the professional community, losses are skyrocketing in the face of security spending that is increasing to astronomical levels. Some estimates place losses to cybercrime alone at $6 trillion by 2021, doubling from $3 trillion in 2015, while security spending will top $1 trillion with expected double digit annual growth. These losses exceed the global illegal drug market and the security investment burden increases at an unsustainable rate. Even with massive investments over the years, the world continues to hemorrhage losses due to cyber-attacks. These damages are derived from individual organizations that have failed to erect and maintain viable defenses.
