At their latest Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) this past summer, Apple announced several new features in their soon-to-be-released iOS 15, noting an emphasis on communication changes and on-device intelligence. For this article we will focus on the new enterprise features, allowing easier and more advanced management of end-user devices while simultaneously improving the end-user experience and privacy.
In previous blog posts we discussed new security approaches like Zero Trust and behavior-based security, and leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Big Data technologies in order to prevent attacks before they even happen, with the motto “never trust, always verify”.
Let's take a look at AGAT's reg-tech product today: Real-Time Audio DLP for Microsoft Teams. Many users are already used to dealing with DLP (Data Leak Prevention) policies when using UC (unified communications) software such as Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, Slack, etc.
An investigation by 17 media organizations around the world has revealed that authoritarian governments, criminal and terrorist organizations have targeted executives, human rights activists, journalists, academics, and government officials for years. While there has been heavy speculation around this being the case, a data leak of more than 50,000 phone numbers revealed a list of identified persons of interest by clients of NSO since 2016.
In our last article, we talked about behavior-based security, a whole new approach to answer today’s security challenges by preventing an attack before it even happens. This may have seemed outlandish even a few years ago but is now a reality thanks to progress made in areas like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Big Data technologies, providing the tremendous computational power required to finally get in front of an attack.
Traditional antivirus software is no longer enough to protect against today’s cyber-attacks. In our hyperconnected world, it only takes one wrong click to propagate to thousands of machines, evidenced by the WannaCry attack that infected roughly 230k machines in 150 countries after day one.
The attacks on the world’s largest meat supplier, JBS, from May 30, 2021, took place by theRansomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) group REvil (also known as Sodin/Sodinokibi), the FBI informed. Such attacks could endanger the global food supply chain, and show the vulnerable state of critical infrastructure worldwide.
