WAR STORIES
 
An accounting company invited FortConsult to perform an internal penetration test in order to assess their cyber risks and identify potentially critical vulnerabilities that could pose a danger to their critical data and business continuity.
EVENT
 
Knowing your enemy is often quoted as Sun Tzu’s most important teaching, and it is no different in IT security. At this free event, we will take you inside the minds of the cyber criminals that make a living by attacking organisations.
THREATS
 
A new ransomware outbreak hits Eastern Europe again. On the 24th of October 2017 several (infrastructural) organisations such as the Kiev Metro and Russian media outlets were hit by a cyber attack.
OPINIONS
 
Threat Intelligence. This seems to be a subject that everybody is throwing around with great abandon. There are as many opinions on what it is, as there are vendors who would like to get in on the action surrounding it. But what is real threat intelligence?
EVENT
 
FortConsult, NCC Group and Fox-IT will participate in it-sa 2017 in Nürnberg in October. The conference will be held at NürnbergMesse from the 10th to the 12th of October. Find us in Hall 10.1, Stand 724.

Join us at IP EXPO Nordic 2017 in Stockholm on 20th-21st of September. The conference will feature talks by FortConsult's head of technical security Michael Moltke and senior security consultant Giuseppe Trotta.

OPINIONS
 
We are increasingly interconnecting our infrastructures (for good reasons), but are we paying enough attention to the risks associated with this? And if we are aware of the risks, are we allocating enough resources to securing these connections?
THREATS
 
Senior security consultant Giuseppe Trotta tells the story of a pentest where a private smartphone and poor network configuration resulted in a compromise of a corporate network and data exfiltration.
OPINIONS
 
In 2016, penetration testers acting as an external attacker, were able to gain access to corporate networks 55% of the time, according to this report. When acting as internal intruders, they were able to compromise the security in all cases. In 2015, the equivalent report had these numbers at 28% (...)
OPINIONS
 
When you are responsible for managing your information security, ideally you would want to do it all.
