How Extreme Weather Will Create Chaos on Infrastructure

Image
Extreme weather events will soon become more frequent and widespread, devastating areas of the world that typically don’t experience them and amplifying the destruction in areas that do. We have already seen devastating wildfires and an increase in hurricane activity this year in the United States. Uncovering shortcomings in technical and physical infrastructure, these events will cause significant disruption and damage to IT systems and assets. Data centers will be considerably impacted, with dependent organizations losing access to services and data, and Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) will be put at risk. Extensive droughts will force governments to divert water traditionally used to cool data centers, resulting in unplanned outages. In coastal areas and river basins, catastrophic flooding, hurricanes, typhoons or monsoons will hit key infrastructure such as the electrical grid and telecommunication systems. Wildfires will lead to prolonged power outages, stretching contin

BSIMM11 Observes the Cutting Edge of Software Security Initiatives

Image
If you want to improve the security of your software—and you should—then you need the Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM) , an annual report on the evolution of software security initiatives (SSIs). The latest iteration, BSIMM11, is based on observations of 130 participating companies, primarily in nine industry verticals and spanning multiple geographies. The BSIMM examines software security activities, or controls, on which organizations are actually spending time and money. This real-world view—actual practices as opposed to someone’s idea of best practices—is reflected in the descriptions written for each of the 121 activities included in the BSIMM11. Since the BSIMM is completely data-driven, this report is different from any earlier ones. That’s because the world of software security evolves. The changes in BSIMM11 reflect that evolution. Among them: New software security activities  BSIMM10 added new activities to reflect the reality that some organizations were wo

Sustaining Video Collaboration Through End-to-End Encryption

Image
The last several months have been the ultimate case study in workplace flexibility and adaptability. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread emergency activation plans through March and April, businesses large and small have all but abandoned their beautiful campuses and co-working environments. These communal, collaborative and in-person working experiences have been replaced by disparate remote environments that rely on a combination of video, chat and email to ease the transition and keep businesses productive. The embrace of remote collaboration, and specifically video collaboration, has been swift and robust. In the first few months of the pandemic, downloads of video conferencing apps skyrocketed into the tens of millions, and traffic at many services surged anywhere from 10-fold to 100-fold. While uncertainty remains on what exactly a post-pandemic working experience will look like, it is without a doubt that video will remain a fundamental part of the collabor
