By: Carolyn Crandall Halloween is here. A time for spooky, scary fun and one of my favorite holidays. When else can you openly become any one that you want to be and “trick” people out of candy. Genius! I love the parallels to deception-based threat detection. Every day our decoys can dress up like real assets and trick an attacker into revealing themselves. Ok, the SOC team doesn’t get candy, but the reward of stopping the bad guys is still awesome. Halloween falls on the last day of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and completes the October leg of the Attivo Networks On the Road Tour where Attivo participated in 10 industry events across the country. More to come in November and December. If you’re in New York on November 14, I will be presenting at the ISMG Healthcare Security Summit, titled, “The Art of Deception for Advanced Threat Detection in Healthcare Organization.” To register, visit here.
Trump International Hotels Management is now the latest in a series of hotel and resort chain operators to inform customers that their card payment data was compromised due to a breach at third-party hospitality solutions provider Sabre Corporation.
Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos, Loews Hotels, and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts have also made such declarations over the last week, following the May 2017 announcement that an authorized attacker gained access to Sabre’s Hospitality Solutions SynXis Central Reservations system, which handles bookings for the resorts. In all four of these cases, the hospitality company issued an online statement warning customers that reservations processed through SynXis from August 10, 2016 through March 9, 2017 were affected.
