Classification Concerns Over FISMA Report on Improving Agency Cybersecurity

The Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) annual report to Congress for full year 2018 indicates considerable success in improving the cybersecurity of federal agencies. The headline statistics indicate a 12% reduction in the occurrence of cybersecurity incidents from 35,277 in FY 2017 to 31,107 in FY 2018. “However,” adds the report (PDF), “FY 2018 marked the first year since the creation of the major incident designation that no incidents met the threshold.” A ‘major incident’ is defined as any incident that is likely to result in demonstrable harm to the national security interests, foreign relations, or the economy of the United States or to the public confidence, civil liberties, or public health and safety of the American people. It also applies, with the same criteria, to any breach involving the theft or alteration of PII belonging to more than 100,000 people.

How to find an MSP to protect you from outsourcing IT risks

“IT often can’t do it all. MSPs and MSSPs (managed security service providers) certainly have their place in helping offload work, adding skills and redundancy. We do, however, need to slow down and think before we just hand over the keys to our kingdoms,” according to Chris Roberts, chief security strategist of Attivo Networks, a leading expert on counter threat intelligence.

Kubernetes security: 4 tips to manage risks

Chris Roberts, an adviser at Attivo Networks, concurs that role-based access control (RBAC) must be enabled for robust Kubernetes security, and adds that many elements of a strong security posture remain relevant in container environments: Good policies, procedures, and controls at the user, application, and network layer; separate and segmentation (including firewalls) where possible; rotating encryption keys; and strong education and integrations among different roles and teams.

Kubernetes security: 4 areas to focus on

Misconfigurations – which in some cases may be a matter of simply not paying attention to configurations – will be a considerable source of risk as more organizations deploy containerized applications to production environments, according to Chris Roberts, an advisor at Attivo Networks. “How many of the installations out there are still relying upon defaults? How many have weak configurations, interconnects, and/or rely upon code bases that are not well-validated, understood, or tested/supported?” Roberts asks. “Arguably, the lack of well-configured environments that are not being monitored or protected will have a huge impact on the number of vulnerabilities in 2019.”
