As we transition into the new year, we look back at 2018… from previewing DEF CON and Black Hat USA talks to cryptocurrency mining and blockchain, our readers, clients, friends, and teammates gave us a space to discuss the latest in cybersecurity. For this, we thank you!
Here’s a look back at our five most read blogs of 2018:
Written by Brad Pierce, this Executive Insights blog challenged readers to think outside-the-box when developing a security strategy by finding the right balance between internal and external cybersecurity support.
Bryan Allison looked back at lessons learned from SOC for Cybersecurity Readiness Assessments to bring readers insights on preparing for SOC for Cybersecurity examinations including refining inadequate processes and vendor management.
Here, Wesley McGrew explores new risks and impacts associated with malicious advertising and cryptocurrency mining. McGrew explains how to best protect against becoming a hacker’s unwilling “mining rig.”
An annual highlight for our team is attending DEF CON and Black Hat USA. In 2018, we had the opportunity to hear our own Director of Cyber Operations speak at both events. In this blog, Wesley McGrew previewed his talks at 2018’s major hacking conferences where he shared findings related to penetration testers attacking multi-container applications. The white paper for these talks can be found here, as well.
In this Executive Insights blog, Wesley McGrew notes that “ransomware attacks have become so common… that the media and the public have started to show ‘fatigue’ for news coverage of these attacks.” McGrew explores how organizations can best prepare, respond, and combat fatigue associated with ransomware in this Executive Insights blog.
One of our goals in the new year is to continually provide content that allows organizations, like yours, to better prepare and defend against cyber risks. We are excited for the opportunity to bring you varying types of content including more blogs, podcasts, whitepapers, and videos in the new year.
Thank you for reading in 2018!
