Resilient Systems CTO Bruce Schneier discusses the vulnerability of airlines to hackers with Bloomberg's Emily Chang at the Def Con hacking convention in Las Vegas.
"The effort is to evangelize that the way to build resilient security is with vigilant, adaptive, relentless defense by experts (people, not products). There are no magic preventive countermeasures against crime in the real world; we are all reasonably safe, nevertheless. Bring that thinking to the Internet."
"...when you finally tie together prevention, detection, and response, you have real security. You have resilience in the face of insecurity."
“'It's one thing to have dissatisfied customers. It's another to have dissatisfied customers with death squads. I don't think the company is going to survive this.'”
"Resilient’s Incident Response Platform will enable Teva to respond faster and more comprehensively to any cyber security incidents."
"Everyone makes mistakes, and I think the most important thing is to be resilient and agile so they don’t become big."
"But to many within the security community, Hacking Team data dump offered a clear denouement of its practices. What they are doing, says Bruce Schneier, noted security expert and chief technology officer of Resilient Systems, is like selling shock batons to South Africa in the 1980s.'"
"Cambridge cybersecurity firm Resilient Systems has hired Karen Higgins, most recently VP of finance at Veracode, as CFO. The company has also hired Maria Battaglia—formerly of Monster.com, Polaris Venture Partners and IBM—as VP of marketing."
"With so much going on in the enterprise security space, it can be hard to keep up with the flow of information and to know where to turn for actionable advice. This list of security experts, selected by eSecurityPlanet, is a good place to start."
The number of cyber attacks happening every year is on the rise. We speak to Bruce Schneier, chief technology officer at the IT company Resilient Systems and a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for the Internet and Society, about why it can take months before a company or organisation even realises it is under attack, and why so many are unprepared.
