    Security leaders across enterprises observe that the digitization of the customer experience has taken the market by storm, and it is imperative for CISOs to adapt to these changes immediately.
  • Insight into advances of adversary TTPs (Dragon Threat Labs)
    As most spearphishing stories begin, Mary receives an email from John, except the email isn’t really from John, it’s from somebody pretending to be John in an attempt to gain Mary’s trust so that she’ll open an email attachment that contains malware.
  • Adobe patches Hacking Team's zero-day Flash flaw being exploited in the wild (Network World)
    Don't twiddle your thumbs or otherwise procrastinate, update Flash Player now as the Hacking Team's zero-day is being actively exploited in the wild. Whether you use Windows, Mac or Linux, it's a critical vulnerability and "all Flash Player users are at risk." Adobe warned that a "successful exploitation could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system."
  • Finnish Decision is Win for Internet Trolls (Krebs on Security)
