Does Anybody Care What Time It Is? Threat Latency

I sometimes wonder if we have become inured to security breaches, they are becoming so commonplace. For large corporations, the millions spent on remediation appears to be only a drop in the bucket, and we have all seen that some of their ‘ethics’ are, at times, questionable.…

Here We Go Again – Whistleblower or Cybercriminal?

Just the other day, Tesla got hacked by one of its now ex-employees, who did quite a bit of damage – stealing gigabytes of data and regularly, supposedly, exporting data and selling it to third parties.…

1.9 Billion Records Exposed – A Taxonomy Could Have Come in Handy

Only 918 reported data breaches led to a whopping 1.9 billion records being exposed, as of September 2017. I would expect the number to rise, although not dramatically, I hope. Compared with the last six months of 2016, the number of lost, stolen, or compromised records increased by 164 percent.…

  • A list of content that will be migrated divided into logical groups
  • A list of content that contains records that were never declared
  • A list of content that contains privacy data or confidential information
  • A list of content that is of no value
  • A list of content that requires special handling
  • A list of content that will require changes along with scoping
