Why We Should Thank, Not Demonize LulzSec, Anon

So the 50-day cruise is over and the guys at LulzSec are going back underground. That should worry some of us because if they did not want us to know what they were doing, I don’t think any sane person would argue that they could not have done so.

While the media has been abuzz about the exploits of Anonymous and LulzSec, the bigger question we should be asking is, are any of their exploits new or did they just give us a wake up call that there is no security, at least in the way we normally define it.

“It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change” – Charles Darwin.

As more companies with national security interests come forward with admission of breaches related to the hacking of RSA’s SecurID technology, one wonders if it is time for RSA to break its stubborn refusal to tell the public what exactly was stolen or when the breach actually occurred.

Encryption Tools for the Mobile Executive

Most companies provide their senior executives with laptops or netbooks and tablets so they can be productive even when on the road. This is even more true of corporate executives who sometimes demand anytime, anywhere access to data residing on corporate servers. The big corporations can afford to spend millions of dollars on data protection hardware and software.

The same cannot be said of executives in small and medium-sized organizations, especially when it comes to loss of personal information, including credit card data, patient records or other financial information, stored by the company. Data breaches happen and information is lost every day due to small mistakes that could have been avoided. For small businesses, these events can be devastating. (more…)
