    Mexican spending on security and military equipment set to rise sharply through 2017

    The critical issue preventing Mexico from realising the vast potential of its geographical location is security. Whether it is the energy sector or manufacturing and services, few foreign companies are willing to risk the safety of their employees in the country or see their goods stolen and ransomed at the hands of powerful drug cartels and organised crime syndicates.

    Airbus D&S introduces new APT cyber solution

    A key challenge for companies operating in the cyber-defence market is in providing solutions that leverage both technological capability and human expertise. Buyers may be unwilling to pay solely for a managed service if they already have invested in an information-security team of their own - and few enterprises active in the defence industry will have progressed beyond sole-trader startup status without having done so. Airbus Defence & Space’s Keelback Net product, therefore, may represent a new model.

    Lockheed Martin establishes Virtual Technology Cluster to drive cyber investment and innovation

    Cybercrime is becoming a well-worn phrase in 2015. The threats from online hackers, cyber terrorists and state actors in cyberspace have been documented and discussed at length in recent years. Governments and commercial organisations are becoming increasingly aware of the need to enhance their cyber defences and bolster digital networks to plug vulnerability gaps. The challenge is identifying how best to do that and in keeping up with rapidly evolving threats and technology.

    The Perfect PR Playbook…For Responding to a Cyber Incident

    Cyber attacks now present a clear threat to all businesses and customers. While the problem is recognized among most large-scale enterprises (i.e. those with the capital to invest in high-end cybersecurity), there remains an inability for any network to remain 100 percent secure. This means that, for now, the average likelihood of a data breach remains high across the spectrum while the capacity for prevention is worryingly outpaced by the capacity of the threat. Today, there is no excuse for not having developed a full plan for responding effectively to a data breach, beginning with an airtight PR strategy...

    Is your business (really) equipped to respond to a data breach?

    While many C-level executives have a strategy in place for cybersecurity, many have not included sufficient planning to handle the aftermath of a successful cyber attack. From protecting valuable information, ensuring business operations continue without interruption, and maintaining a trustworthy reputation, small to large enterprises everywhere have no excuse to be caught out if (or when) their data is stolen.

    Sony’s data leak sets new precedent for ‘critical’ data protection

    At first glance, there seems no particular reason why the defence industry should take much notice of the crisis experienced late in 2014 by Sony Pictures. The Hollywood film studio suffered an attack by hackers; stolen data included scripts of future releases, private emails to and from employees, and personal details of staff. The material was posted to the internet.

    Risk of environmental cyber attacks demands “enhanced monitoring”

    Much has been made of the hacking threat in recent weeks where it concerns the loss of business and intellectual property, but there is a risk that such attention can take the focus off the other – and arguably more vital – side of the spectrum; namely, the physical and environmental risks posed by miscreant or state-led cyber attacks. Most governments have at least been scrambling behind closed doors to strengthen protection for critical infrastructure, such as creating forums and legislation to enable private companies to share information with intelligence agencies. In the US, this has been seen in the establishment of CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act). In the UK, the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) has been running a Portal to facilitate discussion, an initiative praised by the Technical Director of GCHQ this month, who confirmed that “the exchange is very open.”
