Singapore: Sandboxing segregates applications to prevent malicious code from damaging the data organisations want to keep safe and secure. While excellent sandbox research exists for Chrome, Internet Explorer Enhanced Protected Mode and Adobe Reader, there is no similar research for the Microsoft Office Protected-View sandbox. MWR InfoSecurity, believing that needs to change as research is key to prevent security-via-obscurity, will offers its insights at RECon next week .

COLUMBIA, Md., and LONDON UK: Tenable Network Security has announced a technology alliance partnership with CyberArk, the leader in privileged account security, helping customers make the headache of managing user credentials during vulnerability assessments a thing of the past.

LONDON: Tripwire, Inc. has announced the results of a study sponsored by Tripwire on cyber literacy challenges faced by organisations. The study, which was carried out in May 2015, evaluated the attitudes of executives as they relate to cybersecurity risk decision-making and communication between IT security professionals, executive teams and boards. Study respondents included 101 C-level executives and directors as well as 176 IT professionals from both private and public U.K. organisations.

Despite the increasing number of successful cyberattacks against U.K. organisations, the study revealed that 54 percent of C-level executives at organisations within the Financial Times Stock Exchange (FTSE) 100 index believe their board is both cybersecurity literate and actively engaged in routine security. IT professionals from the same organisations are less confident in their boards cybersecurity knowledge, with 26 percent stating their boards only steps in when there is a serious incident.

Recently, news has broken on the Samsung SwiftKey vulnerability, which allows hackers to look through the camera and read text messages on Samsung Galaxy phones. Security experts at Tripwire have described the issue in terms of real-world risk for users and what they should do to protect themselves until Samsung patches its devices.
