Zero trust in one click. Impossibly simple microsegmentation
If we can land rockets on a barge, if we can search 30 trillion web pages in mere seconds, if cars can drive door to door autonomously, why does microsegmentation still take months to implement and cause so many headaches? Edgewise has radically simplified microsegmentation to one click, using machine learning and zero trust security:
Eliminate network attack surface in your hybrid cloud
Investigation into the South American grid failure centered on Argentina proceeds, but remains in its early stages, and no cause has been publicly identified, according to AFP and other sources. The blackout is thought to have cascaded from a local failure. "Operational and design errors" are thought to be at fault. Officials in Argentina say, according to the AP, that while a cyberattack is a possibility, that seems unlikely.
The BBC summarizes reports of US-staged malware in Russia's power grid, presumably held there for retaliation against future Russian cyberattacks on US targets. The reports are unconfirmed publicly and at least partially denied by the US. TASS says Russia regards cyberwar with the US as a "hypothetical possibility," that it's accustomed to US misbehavior, and that it's quite capable of protecting its grid. Lawfare has a useful account of how the laws of armed conflict might apply to what would appear to be a long-running, low-level conflict in cyberspace that many think has the potential to produce kinetic effects.
Iran, without providing much detail, tells Reuters that Tehran has detected and thwarted a US cyber-espionage campaign.
ISIS, from its diaspora in cyberspace, is said to be expressing an interest in protecting its adherents from BlueKeep exploits. Homeland Security Today says the Electronic Horizon Foundation, an ISIS help desk, is warning about the risk of BlueKeep-based attacks. It's not just ISIS that's concerned about BlueKeep: TechCrunch reports that the US Department of Homeland Security has developed a remote-code-execution proof-of-concept exploiting the bug.
Today's issue includes events affecting Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Russia, United Arab Emirates, United States, and Uruguay.

Organizing your resume for your cyber-job search? Shorter may be better.
"I think a very concise, succinct resume is a big standout. I'd like to see examples or notations of big projects they've taken on and maybe a little bit of information of how they solved that. I don't like to see a broad listing of all the certifications and all of the programming languages they know. Candidates need to think a little bit higher-level and put themselves in a hiring role - and maybe they've never been in a hiring role. But they need to think about, what would someone look at when they read this resume? How can they truly convey that they have the skills necessary in order to get the role?"
—Justin Harvey, global incident response leader at Accenture, on the CyberWire Daily Podcast, 6.14.19.
So, think like a hiring manager (and maybe get some coaching on how those hiring managers think).
What if your security strategy added zeros to your bottom line?
Focusing on response alone is costly. You lose data. You lose infrastructure. You lose human and capital resources that could be productive elsewhere. And you lose your reputation. When you catch threats before they execute, you contain the problem, and the rewards add up. Let Blackberry Cylance help you understand how you can reduce your total cost of security controls, bolster your organization’s security posture, and zero in on what really matters.
