Why Security Teams Love Intelligent Deception | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Security #Analytics

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 12/02/2016 - 18:30
Cyberattacks are relentless. The pace of attacks shows no sign of slowing, and organizations understand that 100 percent prevention of attacks is not possible. Traditional prevention and detection techniques are falling short, and security professionals are scrambling for new paradigms that can more effectively detect attacks and mitigate the growing levels of damage. In this climate of confusion, deception-based solutions offer a viable and proven way to stop attackers in their tracks. Why? Because instead of sitting back and waiting to be the victim, detection technologies let organizations be proactive and take the attack to the attacker. We’ve compiled a list of top five reasons why more security teams are opting for deception.

[slides] Virtualized Apps | @CloudExpo @Tintri #VM #DataCenter #SDN

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 12/02/2016 - 16:00
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, shared success stories from a few folks who have already started using VM-aware storage. By managing storage operations at the VM-level, they’ve been able to solve their most vexing storage problems, and create infrastructures that scale to meet the needs of their applications. Best of all, they’ve got predictable, manageable storage performance – at a level conventional storage can’t match.

What ‘Mr. Robot’ Can Teach Us About Incident Response | @CloudExpo #IoT #Cloud #Security

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 12/02/2016 - 15:45
It is not often that movies and television shows give viewers the opportunity to explore the world of hacking and digital security in a realistic manner. After two seasons, "Mr. Robot" has attracted its share of IT professionals as well as average citizens. The show has offered numerous depictions that are of particular interest to those who make their living by protecting their organizations. The critically acclaimed television series offers fictional situations rather than documentary evidence. However, the plots and actions of both the security engineers and hackers are realistic enough that they can send a shiver down the spine of any professional responsible for safeguarding their organization's system and responding to incidents. This two-part post explores some of the most chilling incidents depicted on the show – incidents that are especially disturbing because they can and do happen in the real world.

Business Transformation Challenge | @CloudExpo #IoT #M2M #BigData #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 12/02/2016 - 15:00
I’m a fan of Woody Allen movies, especially his earlier movies (can’t tell you how much I learned from the movie “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex…” but that’s a topic for a different blog). In the Woody Allen classic “Annie Hall,” Woody Allen’s character (Alvy Singer) makes the following statement: “A relationship, I think, is like a shark, you know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.” This is relevant to a business – either your business is constantly moving forward or the business dies. And this is especially true for organizations seeking to leverage Big Data and the Internet of Things to drive business transformation. If you are not constantly trying to move forward on transforming your business, then it’s pretty certain that what you’ve got on your hands is a dead business.

[slides] Making Our Internet Great Again | @CloudExpo @TeridionNet #IoT #SaaS

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 12/01/2016 - 21:45
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does not address real-time apps, video, conferencing and collaboration, which is the Internet. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Elad Rave, CEO and co-founder of Teridion, discussed why.

Effectively SMBs and government programs must address compounded regulatory compliance requirements. The most recent are Controlled Unclassified Information and the EU's GDPR have Board Level implications. Managing sensitive data protection will likely result in acquisition criteria, demonstration requests and new requirements. Developers, as part of the pre-planning process and the associated supply chain, could benefit from updating their code libraries and design by incorporating changes. In her session at 19th Cloud Expo, Maria C. Horton, Founder and CEO of EmeSec Incorporated, discussed how addressing the new liabilities of Sensitive Data Tracking for GDPR and CUI via code design can reap huge benefits for organizations and for developers that do just that whether in cloud, IoT or traditional environments.
