When Barack Obama announced his reforms of National Security Agency surveillance programs today, few people were as interested as Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg, Tim Cook, Marissa Mayer, and Steve Ballmer.
I like Bruce's pragmatic view on security - now: NSA Exploit of the day?! This is tough stuff! Imagine how many exploits have been published during the last 6 months related to the NSA and how many have been disclosed by other ressources.
No system is unhackable. But to hear Hector Hoyos describe his company’s latest security offering, it’s hard to imagine cyber-intruders easily breaking through the barriers he’s created.

I am a sceptic person when it comes to biometrics. Nevertheless I like the aspect of how to fool such a system. It gives us a few insights about the "must have features" like micro movement detection etc
I like his view and fully support it. The role of the CISO will become more and more important. Security is a boardroom issue and I am willing to accept a bet on the role of the CISO in large scale organizations in 10 years time.
Applying big data approaches to information security can help enterprises build better situational awareness capabilities, but implementation could prove to be a major challenge, security experts said at the RSA Conference 2013 being held here this...
Earlier this week, Dr. Web reported the discovery of a Mac OS X botnet Flashback (Flashfake). According to their information, the estimated size of this botnet is more than 500, 000 infected Mac machines.

CA senators want to bar law enforcement from helping; others would go further.

The chain of argumentation is compelling - but unrealistic?
I have more concerns regarding the water consumption generally 1.7 million gallons of water per day to cool down NSA supercomputers is a big deal - especially when you think about the value of water and the fact that water becomes a more and more valuable ressource that is not affordable to everyone. Is this environment sustainable?
Security experts have proposed a simple way for websites to better secure highly sensitive databases used to store user passwords: the creation of false "honeyword" passcodes that when entered would trigger alarms that account hijacking attacks are underway.
The suggestion builds on the already established practice of creating dummy accounts known as honeypot accounts. It comes as dozens of high-profile sites watched user data become jeopardized—including LivingSocial, dating site Zoosk, Evernote, Twitter, LinkedIn, and eHarmony to name just a few from the past year. Because these dummy accounts don't belong to legitimate users of the service and are normally never accessed, they can be used to send a warning to site administrators when attackers are able to log in to them. The new, complementary honeyword measure—proposed in a research paper titled "Honeywords: Making Password-Cracking Detectable—was devised by RSA Labs researcher Ari Juels and MIT cryptography professor Ronald Rivest, the latter who is the "R" in the RSA cryptography scheme.
