Tuesday - 8/24/2010, 4:58pm EDT
- Achieving better cybersecurity is a goal that really reaches across several levels of any organization. DorobekInsider has been talking with the winners of the Department of Homeland Security's 2010 Cyber Challenge. The Cybersecurity is Everyone's Responsibility campaign won the honor for Best Publicity and Marketing Plan. Kevin Parra is a marketing manager with the Global Government Solutions Group at Cisco Systems. He says they targeted youth, the elderly, and small and medium-sized businesses in the creation of a cybersecurity portal.
- Could a malware virus bring down an airplane? A new report by Graham Cluley, a senior technology consultant with security company Sophos suggests that trojans caused a SpanAir plane to crash in 2008. The crash left more than 150 people dead. Infosecurity reports that it appears the crash was caused by malware infilitrating the central computer system. If the malware had been detected the plane would have been grounded. The National Transportation Safety Board reported that the plane had taken off with its flaps and slats retracted - and that no audible alarm had been heard to warn of this because the systems delivering power to the take-off warning system -- failed. According to the research, "next time someone tries to convince you that the people who write malware aren't really doing anyone any serious harm - remember this case." If the reports are verified this will be the first links to malware causing a major loss of life.
