Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015
President Barack Obama focused on a number of new cyber security proposals that will encourage greater information sharing between the government and corporations. How boards of directors and CXOs can build the proper foundation to address today's IT security challenges is the topic of Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015, 2-day seminar well-known cybersecurity expert Edgar Perez will conduct in Dubai, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, London and New York City. This is the first seminar developed for leaders for whom cybersecurity preparedness is a relatively new yet critically important area to be intelligently conversant about.

Cyber security hinges on reliable passwords
Using a strong password does help a lot even against the attack of cracking the leaked/stolen hashed passwords back to the original passwords.  The problem is that few of us can firmly remember many such strong passwords.  It is like we cannot run as fast and far as horses however strongly urged we may be.  We are not built like horses.

 At the root of the password headache is the cognitive phenomena called "interference of memory", by which we cannot firmly remember more than 5 text passwords on average.  What worries us is not the password, but the textual password.  The textual memory is only a small part of what we remember.  We could think of making use of the larger part of our memory that is less subject to interference of memory.  More attention could be paid to the efforts of expanding the password system to include images, particularly KNOWN images, as well as conventional texts.

 By the way, some people shout that the password is dead or should be killed dead.  The password could be killed only when there is an alternative to the password.  Something belonging to the password(PIN, passphrase, etc)and something dependent on the password (ID federations, 2/multi-factor, etc) cannot be the alternative to the password.  Neither can be something that has to be used together with the password (biometrics, auto-login, etc). What could be killed is the text password, not the password.

Data analytics is a powerful fraud prevention and policy enforcement tool
Good advice for banks to maintain sophisticated tools such as analytics to prevent fraud and protect customer data. Data analytics should be a key weapon in every company's fraud protection arsenal and can strengthen your internal controls. I work for McGladrey and there's a very informative whitepaper on our website that readers of this article will be interested.  bit.ly/VSs1Mx
