Let’s Stay Together
The information security industry is at war – with itself. A civil war occurring simultaneously with the more widely publicized war against cybercrime, and whatever and whomever threatens the security of information. Consensus says that defense is almost always at a disadvantage, of which inf ...

What a year 2013 has been, for both the information security industry, and Infosecurity Magazine. This year we celebrated our 10th anniversary - happy birthday us - so I was expecting big things. And Snowden delivered. Thanks Edward. I'm not going to write about the industry’s 2013 highlights ...

When I was invited to attend a roundtable on ‘mobility’, hosted by Canon, I was in two minds. I kind of feel like I‘ve heard it all before when it comes to BYOD and security challenges around remote working. On the other hand, it’s still a topic which interests and challenges ...

I Heart NYC
NYC and I have been ‘on a break’ for the last few years. It wasn’t Manhattan, it was me. We didn’t fall out, as such. Perhaps it was a case of too much too soon – after my very first visit to the city in 2008, I visited several times within a two-year period. Like at th ...

First a disclaimer: This blog has absolutely nothing to do with information security. This blog is about Las Vegas, with the only link to infosec being that it was for Black Hat and BSides Vegas that I’ve spent the last four days in Sin City… So, Vegas. Vegas is one of the most exciti ...

Securing Credit Card Voice Transactions
This afternoon, I met the CEO (and co-founder) of Semafone, Tim Critchley. When the invitation to interview him landed in my inbox, I was all set to turn it down. As Critchley himself admits, call centre security is “far from sexy”, and it’s not a topic that had ever occurred to me ...

Shortly before the chaos of Infosecurity Europe, I joined David Emm, senior security researcher at Kaspersky Lab, for lunch in a lovely quiet gastro pub in the Oxfordshire countryside. Whilst I frequently publish Emm’s quotes and photos in the magazine, we both agreed that this was most likel ...
