Low tech or no tech attacks are often as successful high tech attacks. From NPR “Man Used Change Of Address Form To Move UPS Headquarters To His Apartment.”

Low tech or no tech attacks are often as successful high tech attacks.

For nearly three months, mail addressed to UPS’s corporate headquarters was forwarded to Henderson-Spruce’s apartment. He received so much mail that the mail carrier had to leave it in a USPS tub outside his door, the Tribune reports.

Man Allegedly Used Change Of Address Form To Move UPS Headquarters To His Apartment

Prosecutors say he received thousands of pieces of mail intended for the company, including checks and corporate credit cards. He is now facing federal charges.

All videos updated with the April 15th 2018 changes.

Good news everyone!

I just finished updating all the videos on my free CISSP Certification Essentials + 80 practice questions! 2018 with the changes from the new April 15th 2018 CISSP curriculum.

https://udemy.com/cissp-essentials/

I did it obviously to ensure this course is current, but also as part of upcoming full CISSP course (ETA 2-4 weeks).

The changes to the curriculum are very minor, less than 1%.

Of the curriculum changes that happens every 3 years, this is by far the smallest.

I mentioned it last time, if I was a student I would not buy another book if I already had the old one. As a diligent instructor I of course bought it 🙂

I hope I can help you get certified,

My thoughts on the new official CISSP book April 15th 2018 and discounts on my practice tests.

I just finished looking at the new version of the official CISSP book from the April 15th 2018 curriculum revision (It is available now on amazon for kindle, hard copy available early/mid may).
The updates are even less than we initially thought, we expected 3-5% change and it is actually less than 1%.
I still would not buy it as a student, IF I already had the previous version.
To reflect the changes I have updated some of my practice questions and all my CISSP test courses are available for only $9.99 per course.
Chose the set that best compliments your study approach, both sets are based on the same unique 1,000 questions.
 
Set 1 is made to emulate the CISSP exam, there are 4 test courses with 2 full 125 questions in each.
 
Set 2 is based on the CISSP CBK knowledge areas, there are also 4 tests with 2 CBK domains each. Domain 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8.
CISSP certification practice questions Domain 1 & 2

Cybersecurity Tech Accord

The Cybersecurity Tech Accord is a public commitment among 34 global companies to protect and empower civilians online and to improve the security, stability and resilience of cyberspace.

Signing pledge to fight cyberattacks, 34 leading companies promise equal protection for customers worldwide

Companies across every layer of internet communication vow to defend against misuse of their technology; promise to protect all customers regardless of nationality, geography or attack motivation.

REDMOND, Wash. — April 17, 2018 — On Tuesday, 34 global technology and security companies signed a Cybersecurity Tech Accord, a watershed agreement among the largest-ever group of companies agreeing to defend all customers everywhere from malicious attacks by cybercriminal enterprises and nation-states. The 34 companies include ABB, Arm, Cisco, Facebook, HP, HPE, Microsoft, Nokia, Oracle, and Trend Micro, and together represent operators of technologies that power the world’s internet communication and information infrastructure.

“The devastating attacks from the past year demonstrate that cybersecurity is not just about what any single company can do but also about what we can all do together.” said Microsoft President Brad Smith. “This tech sector accord will help us take a principled path towards more effective steps to work together and defend customers around the world.”

The companies made commitments in four areas.

Stronger defense
The companies will mount a stronger defense against cyberattacks. As part of this, recognizing that everyone deserves protection, the companies pledged to protect all customers globally regardless of the motivation for attacks online.

No offense
The companies will not help governments launch cyberattacks against innocent citizens and enterprises, and will protect against tampering or exploitation of their products and services through every stage of technology development, design and distribution.

Capacity building
The companies will do more to empower developers and the people and businesses that use their technology, helping them improve their capacity for protecting themselves. This may include joint work on new security practices and new features the companies can deploy in their individual products and services.

Collective action
The companies will build on existing relationships and together establish new formal and informal partnerships with industry, civil society and security researchers to improve technical collaboration, coordinate vulnerability disclosures, share threats and minimize the potential for malicious code to be introduced into cyberspace.

The companies may have adhered to some or all of these principles prior to the accord, or may have adhered without a public commitment but this agreement represents a public shared commitment to collaborate on cybersecurity efforts. The Tech Accord remains open to consideration of new private sector signatories, large or small and regardless of sector, who are trusted, have high cybersecurity standards and will adhere unreservedly to the Accord’s principles.

“The real world consequences of cyber threats have been repeatedly proven. As an industry, we must band together to fight cybercriminals and stop future attacks from causing even more damage,” said Kevin Simzer, Chief Operating Officer, Trend Micro.

The victims of cyberattacks are businesses and organizations of all sizes, with economic losses expected to reach $8 trillion by 2022.* Recent cyberattacks have caused small businesses to shutter their doors, hospitals to delay surgeries and governments to halt services, among other disruptions and safety risks.

The Tech Accord will help to protect the integrity of the one trillion connected devices we expect to see deployed within the next 20 years,” said Carolyn Herzog, General Counsel, Arm. “It aligns the resources, expertise and thinking of some of the world’s most important technology companies to help to build a trusted foundation for technology users who will benefit immensely from a more security connected world.”

Companies that signed the accord plan to hold their first meeting during the security-focused RSA Conference taking place in San Francisco, and will focus on capacity building and collective action. Future actions may include jointly developed guidelines or broadly deployed features, as well as information sharing and partnering to combat specific threats to make the online world a safer place for people and businesses everywhere — and uphold the promise and benefit technology offers society.

Polyverse raises $2 million to stop cyberattackers in their tracks

Alexander Gounares
Alexander Gounares

A Seattle area startup by the name of Polyverse believes it has developed new technology to stop cyberattackers in their tracks, and it has raised $2 million in fresh funding to protect organizations’ server and cloud applications from end-to-end.

The funding follows a $1 million round last summer. Polyverse is led by Alex Gounares, who previously served as CTO of AOL and corporate vice president at Microsoft. Prior to starting Polyverse, Gounares was CEO of Concurix Corporation, which he sold earlier this year to San Mateo, Calif.-based Strongloop in a deal of undisclosed size.

Kirkland-based Polyverse uses what it calls “moving target defense” to prevent cyberattacks, storing data in an array of containers instead of storing millions of records in a few databases. The company claims this system “completely undermines the economics of cybercrime,” making it so “cyberthieves must endlessly rethink their attack strategies.”

Polyverse also says the the technology — which integrates with existing hardware and software systems — self heals, creating new containers in a method that’s similar to wiping a hard disk.

Containers are continuously created from last known good state and put into use servicing requests,” the company writes in a white paper. “After a brief time (typically five seconds), containers are then garbage collected. Any malware that may have been inserted is thus automatically removed. Among other advantages, this makes it far more difficult for cyberattackers to execute advanced-persistent-threat (APT) attacks.

SpringRock Ventures led the round, with SpringRock’s Kirsten Morbeck noting in a release that “Polyverse has an exceptional team building on a paradigm shift in cybersecurity.” Polyverse employs just under 20 people.
