Health Care Is Gold Mine For Hackers


Today’s digital health care systems are facing relentless cyberattacks, which are targeting health care organizations as well as the medical devices they use. The critical nature and size of the U.S. health care market — an estimated $3.5 trillion in 2020, with substantial growth anticipated — make it a favorite target of hackers. Vanson Bourne conducted a survey for Sophos in early 20... » read more

Security Risks Grow With 5G


5G mobile phones can download a movie in seconds rather than minutes, but whether that can be done securely remains to be seen. What is clear from technology providers, though, is they are taking security very seriously with this new wireless technology. More data is in motion, and the value of that data is growing as users rely on mobile devices for everything from banking to automotive saf... » read more

Mitigating DDoS Attacks With Secure IoT Endpoints


IoT life-cycle management should be implemented via a hardware root-of-trust to ensure secure updates of firmware and cryptographic keys. A hardware root-of-trust with a cryptographic identifier also allows each IoT device to be uniquely and cryptographically verified to determine if it is authorized to connect to a specific cloud service. Spoofed or unauthorized devices are easily identified b... » read more

But even the success of the smartphone is being eclipsed by the lightning pace at which Internet of Things (IoT) products are being born, with Gartner predicting that 95% of all technology products will be IoT-capable... » read more

Imperfect Silicon, Near-Perfect Security


Some chipmakers, under pressure to add security to rapidly growing numbers of IoT devices, have rediscovered a "fingerprinting" technique used primarily as an anti-counterfeiting measure. [getkc id="227" kc_name="Physically unclonable functions"] (PUFs) are used to assign a unique identification number based on inconsistencies in the speed with which current causes a series of logic gates to... » read more

Securing The Industrial Internet Of Things


Objects, sensors, actuators and controllers that were once designed for stand-alone operation are now increasingly connected by means of intelligent software and networks – forming the basis of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). To be sure, GE defines the IIoT as “a network of a multitude of devices connected by communications technologies that results in systems that can monitor, co... » read more

Securing Smart Homes


One year after Mirai malware hijacked more than 100,000 connected devices for its botnet and launched a denial of service attack — which briefly blocked access to popular sites such as Netflix, PayPal, Amazon and Twitter — [getkc id="76" kc_name="IoT"] device makers are just beginning to get smarter about home security. Security concerns reach deeper into the home than just the Internet ... » read more
