The OPM Breach Two Years Later: Four Best Practices for Cyber Operational Excellence
Socrates is alleged to have said, “the secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”1 The saying certainly applies to cybersecurity, where change is the only constant. You don’t have to be Socrates to see that two years after the Office of Public Management cyberattack, too many organizations are still focusing on the old and not building the new. The good news here is that it’s not too late. There are some best practi ...

Are Your Containers At Risk?
Containers have transformed the way organizations are deploying applications and services within their environments.

Rapid changes in agile environments can create significant risks for security teams using traditional vulnerability management solutions. Tenable.io™ Container Security provides you with an in-depth vulnerability assessment of container images, ...

Rooting a Printer: From Security Bulletin to Remote Code Execution
Printers. They are everywhere. In big businesses. In small businesses. In our homes. In our schools. Wherever you go, there they are. But where are they in your threat model? When was the last time you updated the firmware? Do you know if there are public exploits for your printer? For example, in early April, Hewlett Packard released a security bulletin titled, HP PageWide Printers, HP OfficeJet Pro Printers, Arbitrary Code Execution. The bulletin states: A potential security vulnerability has ...

Master Your Security Foundation: CIS Vulnerability Management Controls
Most of us are likely very familiar with vulnerability management. Unfortunately, familiarity with vulnerability management doesn’t necessarily equate to mastery. According to a survey sponsored by Tenable and the Center for Internet Security (CIS) in late 2016, about half of the surveyed organizations need to significantly improve their vulnerability management practice. The following data tell the story: Only 56% use automated tools to perform any type of vulnerability scanning. Only 51% ...

Tracking Down Privilege Escalation Failures
Tenable.io Vulnerability Management ReportsCredentialed scanning is a key aspect of any vulnerability management program, but how can you be sure the scans are successful? Changes to infrastructure or specific hosts could result in the wrong credentials being used to elevate privileges during scans. If this happens, your scans could fail to gather the vulnerability data essential to effectively implementing your vulnerability management plan. The Tenable.io™ Elevated Privilege Failures rep ...

A Personal Perspective on Closing the Cyber Diversity Gap
I’ve been in IT for the last 16 years, nearly two of which have been in cybersecurity. I was recently given public platforms to discuss my views on diversity in the industry. The crazy part is how close I came to never actually having a career in tech. The first opportunity came following my recognition as Minority Practitioner of the Year by the International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP). And most recently, I joined over 100 women at the Executive Women&rsquo ...

Web Applications Under Attack: Tenable.io and the 2017 Verizon DBIR
According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), web applications are under attack even more so than last year (page 57), especially in the financial sector. Primary targets are personal data and credentials: in over half of the reported non-botnet breaches resulting from web application attacks, personal data was compromised. Use of stolen credentials is the top method of hacking web applications, but SQL injection (SQLi) continues to be a dangerous vector (page 58). With ...

The OPM Breach Two Years Later: Why We Need a Marathon
The White House called for a 30-day sprint in response to the devastating data breach at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), discovered in April 2015. The immediate goal was to bring agencies’ cybersecurity up to an acceptable level. It directed agencies to implement a number of best practices, including scanning systems for known threats, patching critical vulnerabilities, managing privileged access and using multi-factor authentication. But is a sprint enough? Two years after the ...

Master Your Security Foundation: Harden Your Systems
According to a survey conducted by Tenable in late 2016, only 50% of our customers use our configuration auditing capabilities. That’s the bad news. The good news is that those who do use it really like it. But back to the bad news; Tenable and the Center for Internet Security sponsored a separate research project that found that only 55% of organizations enforce secure configuration standards for laptops, workstations and servers. That leaves a lot of systems with potentially unnecessaril ...

How Vulnerable Are We?
Tenable.io Vulnerability Management ReportsCISOs often ask “How vulnerable are we?” when presented with vulnerability metrics and reports. As the head of a security team, are you prepared to answer that question? The answer to that question often lies in the relationship between vulnerability and exploitability. All exploitable vulnerabilities are, of course, vulnerabilities. But when a vulnerability isn’t marked “exploitable,” what does that mean? The most accurate ...
