London, U.K: Findings of a new survey by ClusterSeven reveals that EUC risk is widely recognised by organisations in the UK and yet there’s only a small minority of businesses that are even imposing manual control policies to mitigate the emanating threats. The report entitled ‘The Spreadsheet is Here to Stay’, suggests that this is indeed surprising as EUCs are one of the key contributors of financial, regulatory, operational and reputational risk.

PHOENIX AND TARRYTOWN, N.Y: BeyondTrust and Westcon-Comstor recently announced the leading security vendor had consolidated its channel strategy and is joining the value-added IT distributor’s exclusive Accelerate program. With the agreement, BeyondTrust is expanding its distribution footprint globally. The move underscores escalating demand for security solutions that guard against insider threats and data breaches for businesses of all sizes.

Following the news that the EU data retention ruling went against UK government, Lee Munson, security researcher, Comparitech.com, comments:

Recently, it was reported that Groupon users fell victim to fraudsters placing high value orders in their name. Below are comments by security experts. Happy reading:

Rob Sobers, director at Varonis says: "Today’s news is the result of billions of compromised user accounts from other breaches now being used to gain legitimate access to Groupon user accounts in order to make high-ticket purchases just in time for the holidays. If hackers can co-opt a consumer’s credentials for Groupon, then data security professionals need to be asking themselves if those same passwords can be used to access their organisation’s data.

The Ministry of Defence has awarded the £30 million contract to produce a Laser Directed Energy Weapon (LDEW) Capability Demonstrator to the UK Dragonfire consortium, led by MBDA, Vigilance can report.

 

Lee Munson, a researcher for security and privacy advice and comparison website, Comparitech.com, is warning Amazon UK customers to be particularly vigilant about the post-holiday deals they find on Amazon as it has caught out one seller in particular attempting to scam users out of money.

Tony Evans from Wick Hill (part of the Nuvias Group) highlights the risks of Wi-Fi and provides some advice for delivering a secure hotspot

The fact that Wi-Fi stands for Wireless Fidelity hints at how long Wi-Fi has been around, but it was only in 1999 that the Wi-Fi Alliance formed as a trade association to hold the Wi-Fi trademark, under which most products are sold. Today, Wi-Fi is on the top of the list of must-haves for businesses of all types and sizes. People will simply vote with their feet if good and, usually free, Wi-Fi is not available.
