Cyber security round-up

Attivo, Cordis, ISO, DNV-GL, NIST, EU Infosec, Technip EPC, London Met on cyber scams.

Attivo Networks has joined the HP/Aruba ClearPass exchange partner program adding its ThreatMatrix deception platform to the platform.

The EU Cordis research program has published a results pack titled, ‘Securing cyberspace,’ setting the scene for the Q1 2017 H2020 cybersecurity calls.

ISO blogger Elizabeth Gasiorowski-Denis advocates measuring information security effectiveness against a new ISO/IEC international standard, ISO/IEC 27004:2016. The protocol helps organizations determine whether their investment in information security is fit for purpose.

DNV GL published a recommended practice, ‘Cyber security resilience management’ covering operational areas with the greatest exposure to cyber risk and securely connecting offshore assets.

NIST has published a ‘groundbreaking’ new security guidelines, a.k.a. Special Publication 800-160, Systems Security Engineering. NIST Fellow Ron Ross said ‘This is the most important publication that I have been associated with in my two decades of service with NIST.’

In a similar vein, the EU Agency for network and information security has published a National cyber security good practices guide, a 60 page free guide to cyber security strategy.

Technip warned suppliers to its EPC-Business procurement portal of a somewhat credible phishing email that falsely claimed to originate from Technip. For further instructions visit the Portal.

Those desirous of avoiding such misfortune could do a lot worse than read the London Metropolitan Police’s Little Book of Cyber Scams. In fact, everyone in your organization should read it!
