Today, May 4th, I write this article to stress that we are just three weeks away from the date that General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will be enforced. I hope that organisations around the world are making their final preparations to be ready for the 25 May 2018 milestone in privacy legislation.

What better day, May the 4th, to take inspiration from Star Wars as we continue our GDPR journey.

Por Carl Leonard, Analista Principal de Seguridad de Forcepoint  

Comenzó la cuenta regresiva. En febrero de 2018 Google anunció que para julio de este año Chrome v68 identificaría a los sitios HTTP como “No Seguros”. Este esfuerzo de Google ha sido esperado por mucho tiempo a medida que la compañía y otros proveedores promueven conceptos como “la encripción predeterminada” o “HTTPs en todo lugar”. De hecho, revisamos las implicaciones de que la web se encamine hacia la... Read More

As the CIO of Forcepoint, I get exposed daily to vendors trying to sell me a multitude of technologies. Some come from across the country while others sit just a few offices away in the same building. While I have of course implemented many Forcepoint solutions, there is nothing compelling me to do so.

My CISO and I often have conversations around the types of technology we... Read More

We covered the basic concepts of blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and coin mining in our previous blog.

As we discussed, after a few evolutionary steps via Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) mining algorithms returned to their roots: the ‘humble’ personal computer. The suitability of algorithms such as CryptoNight (which underlies the Monero currency) ultimately led to the porting of the source code to JavaScript and a departure from the more traditional approach of...

A Human-Centric Approach to Risk Adaptive Protection

The current cybersecurity market is oversaturated with acronyms, cryptic lingo and noise.  Government agencies are asked every day to protect critical networks with limited resources and people while government funding instability brings challenges to establishing both short and long-term plans regarding technology initiatives. Effective and seamless security solutions have never been more important given the aforementioned and... Read More

This post is an updated and expanded version of our 2017 cryptocurrency primer.

When Bitcoin (BTC) first appeared in 2009, few people had a clear idea of what it was, let alone the waves it would generate both financially and technologically. The underlying blockchain technology was more or less a new concept, and like most new concepts was poorly understood in general.

In 2018, blockchain remains a hot topic: while it is tied in many people’s minds to cryptocurrencies... Read More
