During 2017 we will suffer ‘old’ threats like ransomware, cyber espionage and ‘hacktivist’ exposing privacy issues but in addition to known them, our threats list will upgrade so much adding new concepts like machine learning accelerates social engineering attacks or cloud computing providers infection. The list is a very long, so a big effort (time, money, people) is needed to mitigate all these risks. After reading more than 10 different reports about Cyber Security Threats 2017 published in Internet I did my own version. I hope you like it.

Cyber Security Resilience & Risk Aggregation concepts have a near relationship because Risk aggregation refers to efforts done by firms to develop quantitative risk measures that incorporate multiple types or sources of risk. Cyber Security Resilience is the capacity to have different Cyber controls which can provide the organization an adequate resilience according the organization risk appetite by doing risk management of the aggregation of multiple types or sources of risk. One interesting topic is Internet of Things (IoT) which is increasing in our personal and professional life. The more assets are “shared” (including Critical Infrastructures and Smart Cities IT assets) the more risk we areRead More →

The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) is increasing for both leisure and commercial purposes, so it is more and more an extended practice. The different uses are many and the list continue growing, thus some issues started to appear which need regulations and best practices to try to control the use in a correct way. I created a presentation where I explain the best practices about the use of drones in Critical Infrastructure, you can see my presentation here: Drones and their use on critical infrastructure from Ramiro CidRead More →

Nowadays, and even more in the future, Internet of Things will be present (it is already now) in our personal and professional life. The more assets are “shared” (including Critical Infrastructures) in this new “environment”, the more risk we are assuming, so more effort we will need to do to improve our security. It is clear that we are “opening” many doors (too many?) to give opportunities to hackers to attack our Critical Infrastructures, environments and assets, steal or destroy our data (think about Big Data also) and maybe we can also think all it is not logical because it is an attitude with too muchRead More →
