The National Institute of Standards and Technology has unveiled a pair of draft practice guidelines that offer updated advice and best practices on how to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data in light of increasing threats from ransomware and other large-scale cyber events.
Iowa prosecutors have dropped all charges against two penetration testers who were contracted to test the electronic and physical security of three judicial facilities, only to be arrested for trespassing.

U.K. officials reportedly are considering a proposal to allow China's Huawei to play a limited role in providing certain equipment for the country's 5G rollout, which would defy calls from the U.S. for a complete ban of telecom gear from the company.
Federal regulators are warning healthcare providers about six vulnerabilities in some of GE Healthcare's medical device systems that could allow attackers to remotely take control of the gear. The company is working on patches.
Security teams are dealing with more vulnerabilities than they can handle. Spreading these limited resources too thin can quickly lead to inefficiency and burnout. Don't waste precious time re-mediating vulnerabilities that pose little to no risk.
With risk-based vulnerability management, you'll know exactly which...
How much do you know about the supply chain that takes a vulnerability and turns it into an exploit?
In this new report, Tenable Research explores the lifecycle of exploits - from discovery to utilization in a breach. Their analysis of cybercrime economics will help you better protect your organization. Read the...
Written by SANS experts, Practical Industrial Control System Cybersecurity: IT and OT Have Converged explores key issues arising when IT and OT are combined into cyber-physical systems, where risks must be continually identified and managed.

Microsoft says it's prepping a patch to fix a memory corruption flaw in multiple versions of Internet Explorer that is being exploited by in-the-wild attackers, and it's issued mitigation guidance. Security firm Qihoo 360 says the zero-day flaw has been exploited by the DarkHotel APT gang.
The FBI has created a new policy to give "timely" breach notifications to state and local officials concerning election hacking and foreign interference. The updated guidelines look to correct some of the mistakes in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.
Five years ago, cybersecurity executive Dave Merkel called upon enterprises to shed their "peacetime" mindsets and adopt a "wartime" stance against persistent cybercriminals and nation-state actors. How have they risen to that challenge?
Proof-of-concept code has been released to exploit a severe Citrix vulnerability present in tens of thousands of enterprises. Citrix says it's developing permanent patches but that enterprises should use its mitigation guidance. In the meantime, attackers are hunting for vulnerable machines.
Corporate network security breaches, which can prove costly to remediate and expose a company to lawsuits, are frequently the result of vulnerabilities that could have been fixed for a relatively low cost. A a brute force penetration test is a critical first step in finding those vulnerabilities.
Protecting enterprise networks from attackers boils down to the same thing: Unless organizations get the basics right, they're sitting ducks. That's a top takeaway from experts warning that Iran will likely retaliate with cyberattacks after one of its senior military leaders was killed by a U.S. drone strike.
As the ever-shifting security and threat landscape continues to evolve, it can be tough to distinguish security fact from fiction. Some common data breach misconceptions can seriously misinform your organization's security strategy.
Data breaches can happen to any organization, so it's important to understand your...
