The importance of Video Assistant Referee (VAR)

The FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia is now over and there have been several shocks, with Italy not qualifying, Germany not going through the group stages and England winning a knock-out match on penalties. However, one of the other more interesting features or innovations of this world cup has been the use of video reviews or the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to give it its proper title. Its function is not only to review controversial moments and confirm goals but also to provide information and advise to the referee in certain circumstances. The VAR isn’t just one person, but a team of at least 4, all having distinct roles and functions. There is also a great deal of technology to support the VAR team and the on-pitch referee.

Connections Breakfast Deep Discovery on 08 August, 2018

Wednesday, 08 August 2018 @ Percy and Founders

Cyber-attacks are evolving and becoming increasingly stealthier, with malware activity often masquerading as valid processes and obfuscating traffic. Therefore, how can we detect what can’t easily be seen? With enterprises not only finding breach detection and identification a major challenge, they realise that identifying targeted attacks has become more crucial than before.

Gartner’s latest Market Guide for MDR services

Secon Cyber has been offering its  Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service for around 4 years.  The service was initially developed to address pain points that the organisation was facing internally due to limited resources, lack of time to inspect security logs and software consoles, and the growing number of tools and solutions in use.  Knowing that the clients themselves too often faced these common industry issues, the MDR service was initially offered to them as a Proof of Concept, with both sides learning from it.   This service eventually snowballed into a full-blown solution, addressing the clients pain points and enhancing their experience.  With that was born our in-house developed, value proposition – Secon Cyber’s Managed Detection and Response Service.  More recently, and as a part of our service enhancement, the console itself has developed into an easier to read, risk-based dashboard showing open calls, the state of your estate and the status of logs and events.  Further screens allow you to drill down into this information, but the overriding console gives a clear and simple overview.

CONNECTIONS BREAKFAST: MANAGED DETECTION AND RESPONSE (MDR)

Tuesday 10th July 2018 @ Percy & Founders

The need for MDR is more legitimate now more than ever. Breach identification is a huge challenge. Few organisations have the human resources, let alone the technologies, to effectively find suspect files or incidents out of the millions of packets and sessions that enter, exit or move across a network. Therefore, it’s important to have a solution in place to overcome this hurdle.

The Security Merry-go-round

In a recent webinar, I made a reference to the “security merry-go-round” and thinking a bit more about it I thought I could take that a bit further. Being in security is actually more like being at the fair. It’s getting a lot of attention just now with new rules and regulations (such as GDPR, NIS Directive and MiFID II) and is the shiny new thing at the end of the street. It’s full of excitement, high and lows and is a constant roller-coaster ride, full of bumps and setbacks, a house of horrors (with breaches and hacks) and hall of mirrors (where nothing is quite what it seems). We’re often in a spin, not knowing what to do first or which way to turn, and everything is competing for both our attention and our money.

Webinar – Check Point: SandBlast Zero-Day Protection – The Best Protection at Every Level

The cyber war rages on, and hackers constantly modify their strategies and techniques to remain elusive and achieve their goals. Today’s hacker ecosystem makes it easy for cybercriminals to share exploit code, newly identified vulnerabilities,  and even talent with their co-conspirators. Even novice hackers can leverage these resources to identify vulnerabilities and susceptible organisations, and easily create new zero-day or unknown attacks using custom variants of already existing malware.
