The United States will soon officially have a single agency that takes the lead role for cybersecurity. Congress has passed legislation to establish the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency within the Department of Homeland Security. The measure awaits President Trump's signature.
Google is investigating an unorthodox routing of internet traffic that on Monday sent traffic bound for its cloud services instead to internet service providers in Nigeria, Russia and China. Security experts say border gateway protocol is to blame and no easy fix is in sight.
The security operations center (SOC) faces mountain challenges: lack of personnel, disparate security tools, multiple alerts that must be run down, prioritization of alerts and the transition between incident detection and incident response.
