Authentication vulnerabilities in certain GE Healthcare anesthesia devices could potentially allow remote attackers to meddle with the devices, researchers say. GE disputes some of the findings. Find out what other security experts have to say.
Sensitive information, including credit card and phone numbers, was left exposed to the internet on an unsecured database belonging to Fieldwork Software, which provides cloud-based services to small businesses, researchers note in a new report.
If you analyze any of the recently published cyber attacks, two patterns emerge:
80-90% of the attacks exploit an unpatched vulnerability or an unhardened, widely open system
70% of the attacks begin at the endpoints
While "cool" new products create a lot of buzz, cyber hygiene is often ignored. But, it must be...
So many products, so little value.
Organizations invest in multiple security products, train employees and manage activities, yet don't achieve their security goals. IT environments and endpoints are still vulnerable to attacks and exploits.
Most products have complicated or feature-rich functionality but only...
Security requirements need to be understood holistically in the context of your entire IT environment. Products and tools need to effectively address requirements without contributing to the chaos. Budgets and human resources are limited and need to be applied for maximum benefit.
But with hundreds of product...

Even with strong passwords, attacks are more sophisticated - and persistent. Pairing passwords with additional technology and authentication factors is essential to keeping the business secure. But what type of authentication is right for your business?
The federal government, device manufacturers and healthcare delivery organizations have all raised their games to address medical device security. Now it's time for patients - those truly impacted by devices - to have their say in the discussion, says Suzanne Schwartz, M.D., of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Jeff Gilhool of Lookout explains how phishing and malware are becoming bigger issues for mobile devices and describes what healthcare organizations can do to incorporate HIPAA compliance in their mobile device management plans.
A cybersecurity vulnerability discovered in open source software used by organizations conducting genomic analysis could potentially have enabled hackers to affect the accuracy of patient treatment decisions. But the vulnerability was patched before hackers took advantage of it, researchers believe.
The traditional IAM strategy has been to tie individual users with a unique device. But that doesn't work in healthcare settings, where doctors and nurses often share multiple devices. Jigar Kadakia of Partners HealthCare talks about how he approaches this critical challenge.
