Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, released a new research report that quantifies the window of opportunity cybercriminals have to weaponise vulnerabilities. The research found that cybercriminals have a median seven-day window of opportunity during which they can exploit a vulnerability to attack their victims,
There are serious risks to modern-day sensors through “transduction attacks” according to research conducted jointly by Kevin Fu from the University of Michigan, and Wenyuan Xu from Zhejiang University. The vulnerability could result in real-world problems for those that use devices equipped with sensors.
Cybersecurity company Cybeats, which provides continuous cyber defence solution for Enterprise IoT infrastructure, announced it has raised a seed round of investment from iNovia Capital, Maple Leaf Angels (MLA48 II), and cybersecurity industry insiders Dr. Richard Reiner, Brian O’Higgins, and Brian Bourne.
Tenable Inc unveiled a new partner programme, Tenable Assure™, that positions partners to build long-term, consultative relationships with customers, helping them translate raw security data into a metrics-driven program where every business decision factors in Cyber Exposure.
Today’s consumer devices are becoming defined by their embedded technologies. Wireless locks for everything from doors to bicycles can be controlled from your smartphone, eliminating the frustration of lost keys and forgotten combinations.
It was because of the growing security risks surrounding these devices last year that a number of internet criminals were able to weaponise them and as a result, take a number of websites and services offline by launching DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks.
Successful IoT projects are security driven and focused on business needs, says Ben Boswell, UK & Ireland director of World Wide Technology.
In a society where connectivity is everything, our expectations of technology are constantly increasing and changing. It is estimated that there will be 20 billion connected devices by 2020, the data gathered in this IoT era is helping businesses stay relevant, understand their customers more fluently and improve various parts of their lives.

We will see malware used to shut-down a major transportation sector. I anticipate that the malware will be intentionally targeted to halt a transportation sector either for the purpose of ransomware, or political gain.
