The past 12 months have been packed with geopolitical incident, global malware threats and ubiquitous big-name data breaches. From the CIA Vault7 and NSA Shadow Brokers leaks at the start of the year, to the WannaCry and NotPetya ‘ransomware’ campaigns, and Uber’s shock revelations just last month, there’s been plenty for CISOs to ruminate on. But now the year is nearly at an end, it might be useful to recap some of the biggest themes of 2017 — with an eye on fortifying systems for the 12 months to come.Continue reading →
Consumers and cybersecurity professionals around the world have been stunned by Uber’s revelation that it paid hackers $100,000 to delete data on 57 million users stolen last year.

The last few years, whenever VMware holds its annual user event VMworld, the concept of hybrid cloud is discussed at length. The topic is still the same but the questions have gradually shifted, from ‘how do I prepare for the hybrid cloud when it arrives?’ to ‘the hybrid cloud is already here. How do I deal with it?’.Continue reading →
Two years after the regulation was first announced, the progress is visible but it’s slow. As often happens with regulation, it’s going to take a whipping boy to understand the gravity of the situation for most organisations. One high-profile case of a company handing money over for non-compliance under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be the required wake-up call the rest of the industry needs to get their act together.Continue reading →
