What Is Your Decision…

The elections in the United States is drawing close, tomorrow, and it is important to remember that you need to make decision. Now this is not to discuss your decision on which president you select, but rather the risk your company chooses to select.

Risk is an issue that is a critical factor every day of the year to your business. The recent effects of Sandy and the potential impact of new a new storm could paralyze the already devastated North East. Your business needs to make decisions that will limit its exposure to risk, whether it is financial, natural, or technical. So, during this time of decision-making, make sure you make a commitment to evaluate your companies risk on a regular basis and plan effectively. Remember…risk is not static and your business should not be either.

Phishing for HTML 5…

The blog, Feross.org, posted a good article on using HTML5 for phishing on Oct 8th. Now, to most security professionals, this type of attack will be easily bypassed, but this type of attack is meant for the same group fo people who help feed the African Prince that is trying to pay you by transferring his money through your bank account. In addition, this also targets those people who do not validate the websites they go to or allow scripting on all sites.

This article could be used to help educate, although in a highly technical way, users in how to look for and prevent the success of this type of attack. It is important that all the technical defenses applied to a network or system can be circumvented by uneducated or unaware users that do not practice proper security principles.
