Since the WannaCry ransomware outbreak in May 2017, many people have been wondering what will be next…
The use of a sophisticated exploit that enabled the worm element to propagate was both clever and worrying. But the relatively unsophisticated ransomware attached to it meant that for many people, the impact was containable by simply patching systems.
Companies are dreading the news that they are being held to ransom, especially if it is through a more sophisticated mechanism which may not so easily be stopped or halted, or for those that acknowledge that their protection is not as up to date as it should be.
The WannaCry malware is a good example of how an attacker can take advantage of a vulnerability and a recent exploitation tool that has been made available to the public.

Every day, over 3 million records are compromised from companies around the world. The fact is that cyber threats are no longer a question of IF, but WHEN, a breach will occur. It is vital for your company to have a cyber security plan in place so that you are ready to act if your organisation experiences a data breach.
Due to continued expansion we are seeking a Network Operations Engineer to be based in our Leamington Spa, Warwickshire offices.
PCI DSS and I
Your company obtained PCI compliance. It could have been a journey which ended with a QSA audit, a self-assessment; or, as I saw in some cases, forsaken the PCI crown and decided to “eat” the risk.
So, What now?
Small and large organizations with PCI obligations have more than a Cardholder Data Environment (CDE) to worry about. There are always cyber security concerns involving systems availability, reputation, and also sensitive data concerns around Personally Identifiable Information (PII), healthcare related data, Intellectual Property (IP), regulatory requirements etc.
A recap of RSA 2017
In my blog piece in January, An advance look at RSA 2017, I wrote of what attendees could expect in advance of the RSA 2017 conference to ensure they made the most of their time there.
I wrote of the importance of wearing comfortable shoes, as there’s a lot of walking at RSA. With events in the south, north and west Moscone Center buildings and also two blocks away at the Marriott Marquis, combined with the long expo floor aisles; I am surprised podiatrists didn’t set up shop outside the convention center.
Like everyone, I left the conference with extreme information overload, sore feet, and much more educated about the current and future states of information security.
