Knowledge of security keys used in SIM cards can have wide reaching consequences. As prior research (https://media.defcon.org/DEF%20CON%2021/DEF%20CON%2021%20presentations/Karl%20Koscher%20and%20Eric%20Butler-Updated/DEFCON-21-Koscher-Butler-The-Secret-Life-of-SIM-Cards.pdf) has described, SIM cards are much like little computers with the ability to run applications at a lower level than the phone’s operating system (i.e. Android or iOS). Information obtained by hacking the SIM manufacturer could not only be used to decrypt protected phone communication but it could also likely be used to deploy malicious Java applets to targeted SIM cards by way of special SMS messages or signals from fake cell towers (referred to as sting rays in law enforcement terms). This also potentially opens up new techniques for sophisticated MiTM attacks against cellular data connections authenticated by the compromised SIM cards.--- Craig Young, CyberSecurity Researcher for Tripwire

Last week President Obama discussed cybersecurity at the White House Summit. In this article Simon Crosby, Co-founder and CTO at Bromium, gives his thoughts as below:

At last week’s Cyber Security Summit at Stanford, President Obama sought to reset his administration’s relationship with a tech community alienated by an endless stream of disclosures of the government’s penetration of technology companies to achieve its surveillance goals. He appealed for both sides to unite to build an “Internet Cathedral” that will protect our online society. It’s a nice idea – but who are the priests?

Clavister has received a renewed order from one of South East Asia’s largest telecommunications providers, signing an agreement to secure business critical infrastructure used by its millions of subscribers.

The corporate world is a place where people of different backgrounds converge to work together, in a civilised manner by observing certain laid down rules and regulations of work ethics of which line management reporting is one of them and a must.

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has announced that Leidos has been chosen as the preferred bidder for the Logistics Commodities and Services (Transformation) (LCS(T)) programme.

UK: Onwave has announced a successful on-going partnership with Osborne, a leading UK construction business, to improve IT access for its construction sites to critical information technology resources. The Onwave service helps to avoid costly delays.

A new suite of security qualifications specific to Scotland has been launched by Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (‘HABC’) for learners hoping to become licensed security operatives.

The introduction of the new qualifications comes after one of the largest ever reviews into learning in the sector by the Security Industry Authority (SIA), followed by the introduction of similarly updated qualifications in England, Northern Ireland and Wales in January 2015.
