Change your passwords

A Russian crime ring has collected over 1.2 billion user names and passwords. The statistics within this breach are stunning. 420,000 websites, 4.5 billion records, 542 million unique email addresses.

According to the article – most of the sites are still vulnerable to the hacker’s exploits. The hackers used SQL injection attacks to gain access to this data.

The average breach cost increased 15% last year from $3.1 million to $3.5 million. These costs will continue to rise for the foreseeable future.

As a consumer, create unique user ids and passwords for EVERY site you use. Use an algorithm to make them easy to remember and make them long. An example might be concatenating two of your favorite things together with something separating them. $k11n6Fb$n0wB0@rd1ng! for example. Other techniques can be found here.

As a company, stay on the offensive. Mine your logging data, keep your defenses up to date, insist on tough security protocols over convenience and do not assume you are safe.

Protect against mistakes

Homeland Security issued a new report warning about hackers attacking remote access software. Checking in from home leaves entry for hackers. Victims of these attacks include Target, P. F. Chang’s, Neiman Marcus, Michaels, Sally Beauty Supply, and Goodwill Industries International, the nonprofit agency that operates thrift stores around the country.

The report recommends….making two factor authentication the status quo.

Seattle University got caught with scanned images on an internal drive without permissions. Seattle University donor checks exposed. Incorrect permission settings on an internal drive made it possible for anyone with a Seattle University computer account to view the information.

Two-factor authentication invoked upon accessing the drive would have prevented unauthorized access without first passing a two-factor challenge
