PhishMe and Wombat Security Technologies Settle Patent Dispute

The long running legal dispute between PhishMe and Wombat Security Technologies over alleged patent infringements has now been resolved.

MediaPro Launches New Travel Security Awareness Training Course

Organizations can train their employees to be more security aware in the office, but when it comes to business trips, employees face additional security risks.

To help businesses deal with the added risks that come from business travel, MediaPro has developed a new travel security awareness training course, which has now been added to its extensive library of security awareness training courses. Training courses can be dull and boring, and If employees are not engaged, they fail to learn and knowledge retention is poor. MediaPro appreciates that training can be a chore for employees,...

Software Update Will Help to Prevent MongoDB Cyberattacks

This year has seen tens of thousands of MongoDB cyberattacks, resulting in the theft of millions of records. While MongoDB is secure and incorporates appropriate security controls to prevent unauthorized access, many users had failed to apply security controls and inadvertently left their databases exposed and accessible over the Internet. The exposed databases could be freely accessed by anyone over the Internet without any need for authentication. Earlier this year, hackers took advantage of these common misconfigurations. More than 27,000 companies that used MongoDB had data stolen, their databases were deleted, and they were presented with a ransom demand that had to be paid to regain access to their data. More than 27,000 MongoDB instances were attacked. Many firms were left with no...

ParkMyCloud Launches AWS Start/Stop Scheduler

The Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) was launched in 2009, although almost as soon as users started adopting the PaaS, complaints started flooding in from users about the lack of functionality for on/off scheduling. Rather than paying for the service when it was required for development and testing purposes, RDS had to run continuously, with enterprises incurring considerable and unnecessary costs. It took until June 2017 for Amazon to introduce the option of RDS start/stop scheduling for database instances. Now, when databases are stopped, users are only charged for storage, manual snapshots, and storage used for automated backups. There is no charge for database instance hours. This offers a considerable saving to users and it makes the service much more affordable. Users can...

Automated Solution Searches Dark Web for Stolen Healthcare Data

Hackers are targeting healthcare organizations and are breaking through defenses and stealing data. Healthcare data carries a high value on the black market and the potential profits from a healthcare data breach are considerable. It is therefore no surprise that healthcare data breaches are on the rise. The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights data breach portal shows healthcare data breaches are occurring at record levels. A look at the breach notices issued by healthcare organizations reveals that it often takes months to discover that cybercriminals have gained access to systems and have stolen data. The longer it takes for a breach to be discovered, the greater the resolution costs are likely to be. Fast identification of data breaches allows healthcare...

Cybercrime Battle is Being Lost, Say CIOs

A recent survey by enterprise security firm Bromium has revealed that CIOs believe the battle against cybercrime is being lost. The survey, which was conducted on behalf of Bromium by Vanson Bourne, asked questions of 400 Chief Information Security Offices from large U.S enterprises about the current state of cybersecurity.

Policies and procedures are put in place to tackle the problem, although 85% of CIOs still believe employees are the biggest risk. CIOs were also asked about the effectiveness of endpoint security systems. 68% of respondents...

TigerConnect HealthBot – A HIPAA-Compliant Chatbot for the Healthcare Industry

Making a hospital appointment, ordering prescription medications, or just getting an answer to an important question is not always a quick process. Patients have deal with congested phone lines or wait an age for a reply to an email. This causes a great deal of frustration for patients and involves a considerable amount of wasted time. All too often patients have to contend with 30 minute delays trying to make appointments or get answers to health questions. The situation is also far from ideal for healthcare providers. Staff are required to man telephone lines, and physicians and other healthcare professionals already spend far too long on computers and telephones providing basic information.
