Fri, 01/29/2016 - 11:03 by Neil Farquharson
Guest Speaker Kelley Mak of Forrester Research “The use of email encryption…shows your business partners, your customers, your employees that you take security seriously.” These are the words of Kelley Mak of Forrester Research during our live webcast last Thursday. During our one hour webinar, I posited that many organizations are choosing hosted email and hosted encryption that reduce costs due to organizations not needing to maintain in-house infrastructure any more. The costs are predictable and manageable. One of my takeaways from Kelley’s presentation was that...

Many organizations are looking to ensure the success of their migration to cloud-based email, either now or in the next few months.

Mitnick Interview Goes Live Today

Wed, 06/17/2015 - 10:47 by Neil Farquharson
You may remember this blog from the last month when I reviewed the then forthcoming Kevin Mitnick video. Well the release date has arrived and today you can watch the forty minute interview of Mitnick by Geoff Bibby. When in college, Mitnick admits to having been bored with the assignments set by his tutors. He uses the term “prankster” often and states that he never hacked a system to make or to steal money. When asked by Bibby what motivated him back then, Mitnick replies “it was [for the] pursuit of knowledge, challenge, and the seduction of adventure.” Clearly for...

Review of Kevin Mitnick Video

Fri, 05/29/2015 - 10:44 by Neil Farquharson
I hardly recognized Kevin Mitnick when I met him at RSA back in April. He looked nothing like the dour, baggy eyed and stubble chinned image in his wanted poster from 1994. He was fresh faced and ebullient, and there was a constant flow of fans, young and old, lining up to meet him or to renew his acquaintance. In the world of on-line security, he is a superstar. So you will not be surprised to hear that when I was offered the opportunity to preview the upcoming video of Mr. Mitnick’s interview by Geoff Bibby , I jumped at the chance. And I have to say, the video is both enthralling and...

Back in 2007 Jay Heiser, a respected researcher in on-line security and privacy, described a Community of Trust *, this being a secure, multi-organizational collaborative community working within a highly trustable digital environment. The topic of the Community of Trust came up several times during last week’s Zix Webinar . During the webinar, I had the pleasure of interviewing Frank Klimczak of Genisys Credit Union based in Michigan whose company has been a member of the Zix Community of Trust for over eight years. Frank described in some detail how easy it is for the staff at Genisys...

Privacy and BYOD – How our Landscape is Changing

Tue, 01/13/2015 - 10:54 by Neil Farquharson
I’ve been watching privacy issues here in the US and around the world, particularly as they pertain to BYOD. Let me tell you, 2014 was quite a year for privacy issues and individual rights. Around the US we had a number of lawsuits by employees against their employers for expecting them to answer their phones and emails 24/7 but not paying them for this out-of-hours work. Then in May, the European Court of Justice ruled against Google forcing Google to respond to demands to erase private information from browser listing – the so called Right to be Forgotten . Then in July, US policing experts...

Upcoming Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Webinar: Solutions for Today’s Greatest Security Challenge

Tue, 07/29/2014 - 16:17 by ZixCorp
Every year, healthcare organizations, financial institutions, government agencies and businesses devote huge investments to prevent threats and boost compliance and security measures. Yet one salient fact remains: often the worst breaches and policy violations stem from human error — well-meaning employees who have no idea that they are putting patient records, credit card information and client identities at risk. Often, this data loss occurs through email, such as mentioning restricted information in outside correspondence or attaching documents that may violate customer or patient privacy...
