DISA looks to expand DevSecOps to its infrastructure

DISA looks to expand DevSecOps to its infrastructure The Defense Information Systems Agency is looking in fiscal 2020 to expand its DevSecOps approach beyond just software development and into IT infrastructure. Because DISA delivers IT services across the Department of Defense enterprise, there’s a large opportunity to embrace DevSecOps principles of security testing and automation on the infrastructure side to speed up […]

Enhancing Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection with detonation-based heuristics and machine learning

Detonation-based heuristics and machine learning Phishing campaigns: Online banking credentials Phishing campaigns: Cloud storage accounts Tax-themed phishing and malware attacks Artificial intelligence in Office 365 ATP Email, coupled with reliable social engineering techniques, continues to be one of the primary entry points for credential phishing, targeted attacks, and commodity malware like ransomware and, increasingly in the last few months, cryptocurrency […]

Manifesto Through Security as Code, we have and will learn that there is simply a better way for security practitioners, like us, to operate and contribute value with less friction. We know we must adapt our ways quickly and foster innovation to ensure data security and privacy issues are not left behind because we were […]

AI for good or evil? AI dangers, advantages and decisions

AI isn’t inherently moral — it can be used for evil just as well as for good. And while it may appear that AI provides an advantage for the good guys in security now, the pendulum may swing when the bad guys really embrace it to do things like unleashing malware infections that can learn […]

Quantum Battery

Scientists Have Made a Blueprint For a Quantum Battery That Never Loses Charge  A team of scientists from the universities of Alberta and Toronto have laid out the blueprints for a “quantum battery” that never loses its charge. To be clear, this battery doesn’t exist yet — but if they figure out how to […]

A recent report by FinCERT, a division of the Directorate General for Security and Information Protection of the Bank of Russia, has named the Cobalt group as the top threat for banks and described its attacks as the key trend. Cobalt is currently one of […]

Quantum teleportation moves into the third dimension

Physicists in China and Austria have shown for the first time they can teleport multi-dimensional states of photons. Carrying out experiments using photons encoded via three spatial states, they say their scheme can be extended to arbitrarily high numbers of dimensions and is a vital step in teleporting the entire quantum state of a particle.
