As we approach the busy retail weekend - dubbed Black Friday and Cyber Monday (28 November and 1 December respectively), with anticipated online sales growth this year of between eight and 11%, many retailers will 'freeze' all critical transaction and other supporting systems in an effort to avoid system outages.

However, given that the last 12 months has seen an unprecedented number of breaches - up 26.9% from 2013, with retailers uppermost in the criminals sights, Tenable Network Security asks if retailers security practices should be on the 'naughty list' this December:

Bromium Inc. has announced the publication of “Understanding Crypto-ransomware,” a research report which analyses the anatomy of an attack. The report dissects the sophisticated malware, which evades detection-based security solutions, such as antivirus, and leverages advanced encryption to encode enterprise file types until a ransom is paid, resulting in millions of dollars of losses.

Skyguard will be showcasing their exclusive range of personal safety devices and smartphone apps at this year’s Lone Worker Safety Conference, held at the Olympia Conference Centre on 25th November, Vigilance can report.

 

With just over a week to go until the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) hosts its annual South East Business Crime Conference, the Association has announced details of the exhibitors set to demonstrate the very latest in security solutions first-hand to delegates at the show.

UPnP Forum has launched its UPnP+ Certification level for improved device and open source implementations in new paradigms, including mobile connected computing, Cloud-based service delivery, Smartphone content sharing and the Internet of Things (IoT). With Gartner predicting the number of devices connected by the IoT to grow to 26 billion by 2020 [1], this new certification comes at a time when the need for total interconnectivity and limitless functionality are driving the need for always-on devices.

EPSOM: Kroll Ontrack announced its 12th annual list of the top 10 data disasters from 2014. For the last 12 years, Kroll Ontrack has been collecting and publishing a list of the toughest physical and logical failures from its offices around the globe.

CNL Software will be participating in the Teleste Video Surveillance Summit in Dubai on December 7, 2014. Focused around the deployments of surveillance systems in urban environments, the summit will demonstrate the latest technologies and innovations available to solve today’s challenges in Middle Eastern cities
