These days, all communication technology faces the issue of privacy and identity theft, with Bluetooth being no exception. Almost everyone knows that email services and networks require security. What users need to realize is that Bluetooth also requires security measures as well.
Is your computer been running slower than normal? Are you worried someone may be able to access your computer and steal your private information and use it against you?
In recent months, data breaches and unsecured data stories concerning major companies have dominated the news – so what can businesses do to protect themselves?
A penetration test, also known as a pen test, is a simulated cyber attack against your computer system to check for exploitable vulnerabilities. In the context of web application security, penetration testing is commonly used to augment a web application firewall (WAF).
Pen testing can involve the attempted breaching of any number of application systems, (e.g., application protocol interfaces (APIs), frontend/backend servers) to uncover vulnerabilities, such as unsanitized inputs that are susceptible to code injection attacks.
Insights provided by the penetration test can be used to fine-tune your WAF security policies and patch detected vulnerabilities.
We’ve put together 7 essential Questions you should ask any potential penetration testing vendor:
“The key to success is in putting in multiple layers of defence, such as strong encryption of the credentials, limiting the number of records that can be read in a given timeframe.”
Deeper and multilayered defences make it harder for attackers to get to your data, even if you were compromised.
If it wasn’t a dead give-away based on the all-capitals title, the email header would have been another good hint that this email is not quite legit as I don’t have a TV License for Paraguay (PY domains)
Internet access and its beginnings can be accredited in large part to the collective efforts of many individuals around the globe. However, it all began back in the late 60s when the U.S. military wanted to create a network of computers that could communicate together. This network was to become known as ARPANET. By the mid 1980s, the National Science Foundation improved the networks ability to transfer information at faster speeds. As a result, and by the 90s, Internet service providers (ISP’s) and Web sites began popping-up offering Internet access to the public, thereby, ushering in the age of Internet access.
Many consumers are not feeling neutral about net neutrality–the idea that all content streaming in to the Internet should be treated equally.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
