Ransomware Business Cyber-Attack Analysis

Ransomware Attack

These kinds of cyber attack are very simple to avoid in business and yet the basics of information security management have been ignored. To get the ball rolling just ask yourself these 2 simple questions:

  • Why is our business critical/sensitive information connected to the internet and is it really necessary?
  • Why are the same computers that are connected to the internet also used to connect to business critical/sensitive data?

Generally speaking the answers to these questions are the… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Do you have the brains for Cybersecurity?

If you want to stop people reading your secret messages, use a code to conceal the meaning.

From ancient times to the present day, security, codes and puzzles have been intertwined, as have the people who have tried to crack those codes to read messages they were never meant to see. During World War Two, the code-cracking centre at Bletchley Park was known to recruit people who were a dab hand at solving crosswords and other puzzles. The thinking was… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Apple apologises for iPhone ‘error 53’ and issues fix

Apple has said sorry to iPhone customers whose phones were disabled after third-party repairs, and issued a fix for the problem.

Titan Atlas | Students hit by University of Greenwich data breach

Personal details about hundreds of London-based research students were posted online in an apparent breach of data privacy laws. The University of Greenwich has apologised and said it is in the process of contacting those affected.

Titan Atlas | Glibc: Mega bug may hit thousands of devices

A major computer security vulnerability has been discovered – with experts cautiously warning it could potentially affect hundreds of thousands of devices, apps and services.

However, due to the nature of the bug, it is extremely difficult to know how serious the problem is. “Many people are running around right now trying to work out if this is truly catastrophic or whether we have dodged a bullet,” said Prof Alan Woodward, a security expect from the University of Surrey. Google… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Can technology bring lawyers into the 21st Century?

The legal profession is perhaps more associated with bulging files of papers, odd clothing and arcane procedures than with technological innovation. But several start-ups are trying to give this most conservative – and sometimes vexing – of professions a digital makeover. Basha Rubin, for example, co-founded New York’s Priori Legal, an online marketplace that connects lawyers with businesses, after she perceived that there were too many obstacles in the way of businesses trying to find legal services.

Lawyers listed on… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Fury after Adobe Creative Cloud deletes files

Adobe has patched its Creative Cloud apps after people noticed the software was deleting Mac users’ files without warning. After customers updated Creative Cloud, it accessed their hard drive and deleted the first folder that appeared in alphabetical order. Due to file-naming conventions on Mac computers, the bug often deleted hidden system folders or data backup files. Adobe issued a fix for the issue on Sunday. Many people in the creative industries have reacted angrily on social media. “So Creative… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Do We Need Stronger Sentences For Data Theft?

The recent case of a woman being fined just £1000 for the illegal selling of 28,000 customer records has led to renewed calls from the UK’s Information Commissioner (ICO) Christopher Graham for custodial sentences for data theft.

The Current Situation

As things stand now UK courts can issue unlimited fines but not custodial sentences.

This has long been a point of frustration for the Information Commission. In 2006 for example the then chief of the ICO, Richard Thomas said that… Continue reading
