GajShield on ‘Net Neutrality’

Ending Net-neutrality will squeeze out start-ups who will have to pay distributors to offer their apps at the same level as the larger player. This will monopolise the service for a few. Internet was developed to provide free and fair access to all. Limiting this will kill innovation and prove to be a major hurdle in the growth of the Indian economy. 

Why the Anthem attack is a wake-up call for CISOs

If you have a large customer base, you're a target

On December 10, 2014, someone sneaked into Anthem Inc.'s database but no one realized it for a while. The data breach was only discovered much later on January 27, 2015, after a database administrator found his credentials being used to run a query which was not started by him. By then, hackers had already accessed millions of customer records which included residential addresses, birthdays, medical identification numbers, social security numbers and even email addresses belonging to employees, and both current and former customers.

Companies managing large customer databases particularly need to step up their security because hackers target such data for financial gain. According to reports, data records form insurers and health care providers in the US currently face about 20,000 to 30,000 hacking attempts every week to access their data.

Cyberlaw in India – 2014 roundup

The cyberlaws need to be relooked and improved as more and more Indians are connected. Internet can be used or misused, leaving people vulnerable and often not knowing what to do when a fraud occurs. Internet or phone banking need to be secured further with OTP or two-factor authentication. Authentication is always going to be the weakest link leading to many frauds. Improving or adding further security to authorize a user will improve security and confidence of consumer to use ecommerce more often. Hope, we see added level of security and improved laws to help the every growing internet commerce in India.

The year 2014 was a landmark year in Indian cyberspace and its history. This was the year which demonstrated to the world of how a democracy can harness the power of technology not only for the purposes of ensuring participative governance but also for furthering the cause of democratic values, traditions and norms. The year 2014 was the year of the great Indian elections. These were the first elections in the documented Indian elections history of independent India which were predominantly marked by the use of technology and social media. In fact, social media was used to its hilt to reach out to more and more users in cyberspace and more and more mobile and Internet users for the purposes of engaging them in political discussion and in influencing them to exercise their franchise.

Wake up call

With the recent attack on Sony, followed by an attack on Xbox networks, clearly indicates that security is still not taken seriously by even organisation expected to be leader in their respective industries. It is indeed a wake-up-call for all enterprises who feel that their security is adequate enough. The question that needs to be asked is not who is accessing data but what are they doing with this data. Authentication, though important, is not adequate enough to protect an enterprise. Identity can not longer ensure that data is safe. Real time visibility on how is being used for sent out of the network has become far more important. Context aware security can provide the required visibility and help organisation to protect their data.
