There has been a lot of interest in protecting businesses from the threat of ransomware. But, city governments are at real risk and the impact reverberates to people like me who interact with them daily. After the City of Atlanta ransomware attack in March 2018, this became crystal clear.Read more
Utilizing Key Orchestration During a Hospital Ransomware Event
In Part 2 of this series, we examined the ongoing transition from Cyber Security to Cyber Defense, discussing Cyber Defense effects and utilizing Key Orchestration to realize those effects. In this post, we continue the discussion as we demonstrate how Key Orchestration enables the effects in a real-world scenario.
For practical consideration, let’s examine the following environment: A healthcare enterprise with 15 hospitals, two data centers, and multiple third-parties who use hospital technology resources. The IT infrastructure represents a number networks, applications, storage solutions, and network-connected diagnostic equipment.Read more
It’s been a little over a year since exclaiming that Cyber Security is dead. In that year, we have seen broader acceptance of terms like Defense and Resiliency. We have even seen attempts to pass laws that are the cyber equivalent of the “castle doctrine” for home defense. All that aside, one term that is starting to show up in this space is Orchestration. In practice, tools that support AI, machine learning, or analytics are turning to the term Orchestration to address what happens next. Applying the OODA loop (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) is an easy way to look at this — if SIEM, AI, machine learning, big data, etc. are about Observe and Orient, then Orchestration is about Decide and Act.Read more

Companies and individuals are using cloud services more and more. Putting so much of our data into the cloud introduces a growing problem. The lines between public cloud, private cloud, and software-as-a-service (Saas) have rapidly blurred as new technology develops, redefining what “cloud” actually means. Some businesses put significant portions of their infrastructure into the cloud and choose to keep only a very small footprint in a traditional data center or office. More commonly, businesses will leverage SaaS to handle common IT requirements such as email, storage, CRM, and backups.Read more
Along with the rest of the industry, we recently attended the RSA Conference in San Francisco. While there, many conversations about Fornetix Key Orchestration (KO) started with “You’re an HSM?” or “I already have an HSM… why do I need a key manager?” Key managers have very clear differences from Hardware Security Modules (HSMs.) The main differences reside in how the encryption keys can be used by a Key Manager or HSM. There are other more important differentiators, however, let’s start with how key managers leverage open standards, like the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP), and what exactly an HSM is.Read more
