Time for enterprises to think about security, seriously

View image | gettyimages.com UE directive on Attack against information systems  give us no more excuse to deal seriously, Under the new rules, illegal access, system interference or interception constitute criminal offence across the EU. But while the legislator is working to create tools to address cybercrime as a Whole system problem, that is affecting EU economy, what are enterprise doing on this side? The problem is that if enterprises does not align their cyber security defence to the correct approach every legislation will be useless, because the target will be always too easy. Makes absolutely no sense to start…

IoT, Internet of Things or Internet of Terror?

Why we all talk about IoT I know that there are a lot of good reasons to love the IoT or IoE (where E stand for everything) idea. I can just highlight a couple: Business and easier life. The business behind IoT The first point is quite clear, the tremendous growth of the Smart devices has create a new business that has gone beyond any analyst prevision. Nowadays it seems that it is impossible to think a world not interconnected. Anyway there are still great areas of improvement in terms of quality of the services provided and the spread of…

Some times they come back

View image | gettyimages.com I wrote a few time ago about double standards in IT security that affect eastern countries’ companies as Chinese Huawei and  ZTE or Russia’s ones  when dealing with western countries. I wrote this effect is quite evident every time you read news on cyber security threats. Guess what… I was reading some news lately and I encounter some statements that make me think (again) about it: Let’s take the FREAK attack as an example. FREAK attack is a security vulnerability that breaks HTTPS protection. The troubles today owe to ‘export grade encryption’ – a deliberately weaker form of encryption baked into products shipped outside of the United States, enforced by the American government. The restrictions were removed…

Are we using a double standard in IT security?

Are we using a double standard in IT security? In the last years Cyber Security has raised as a major concern in any sector of our lives, from government to business and even at private and personal level. But I am wondering if there is a sort of double standard when we judge facts happening when they are related to cybersecurity. Let’s make some example: We all have read concerns rising form the rumoured new rules that china will impose to companies selling IT equipments in some sensitive sector like financial, western expert have raised all so of questions pointing out that…

the hypocrisy of religious extremism

No matter wich side you watch it, religious extremism is always using things to justify its own acts. There is no place for self-criticism, just only God rules as they claim to be. Science is one of the first victim, as well as the freedom of speech and the right to criticism. No other idea can be admitted, just only the truth and righteous one, and of course there are only a few that can show what this truth is. Can be the Koran, the Bible, the Torah and Talmud or the Book of Mormon, we always find someone who…

Charlie Hebdo, fanatismo, integralismo e noi

Non cessa mai di stupirmi come un evento tragico scateni spesso e sovente la pare peggiore di noi: invece di fermarsi a pensare, ragionare ed analizzare cosa sia successo si parte in crociate semplicistiche quanto dannose. Mi riferisco ovviamente alle deliziose affermazioni di Calderoli, che critica il Papa per dialogare con l’Islam, come se quest’ultimo non abbia la grandezza morale, etica e culturale per farlo, fortuna che c’è lui [Calderoli] a indicare la via. Del resto la chiusura delle frontiere e l’uscita da Schengen caldeggiata da Salvini va in quella direzione. Che facciamo, chiudiamo le frontiere a chi viene da…

Charlie Hebdo: I’m with you guys

Let say it straight, what happened yesterday in Paris has been terrible. I do not have the all the words to describe all the feeling I am going through. Rage, sadness, fear, shock … I could not believe it, and still I can’t understand how someone could kill in the name of a god someone else just because of a drowing, a statement, a word… they killed people who dare to express their respect for freedom using pencils and words. There is no justification, and there are not religious beliefs that can justify acts like that one. This is not Islam: the poor policemen…

2015 is Here!!!!!

Finally we are at the beginning of a new year, time for hope, time for proposals, time for planning new experiences. So what are mine? 2015 proposals 1) I will work We can say whatever we want, but the truth is that job is a gift those days. The terrible economic crisis of those years leaved a lot of people without a job, people with strong skills and experience have been fired and some have been replaced with younger and not so expensive (but less experienced) people. HP, Cisco, Microsoft a lot of people have been kicked out so have a job…
