Helping Each Other In Our InfoSec Lives
Behind The Curtain: The Downside Of An InfoSec Life | #1

Rick McElroy recounts the stories that no one is telling.
Recently, my editor-in-chief forwarded me an email asking if I’d like to interview Rick McElroy, a security strategist at Carbon Black, for ITSPmagazine’s podcast and column “An InfoSec Life.” Rick had written a blog post for us called "Cybersecurity Ain’t Easy. Let’s Talk About It!" in which he discussed his own experience with defender fatigue – an industry-wide phenomenon that not a lot of people are talking about.

Who's To Blame For Cyberbullying?
Bullying Has Turned Into Cyberbullying, But Please Do Not Blame Technology. It Is Still Very Much A Human Problem

Maybe a few years from now I will rewrite this piece, and I will reach a different conclusion; who knows, if technology keeps moving at this pace, in a relatively short amount of time Artificial Intelligence Entities will be advanced enough to be indistinguishable from humans. Bots will write like people (hopefully better), be able to have a conversation with humans and nobody will be able to tell the difference.  They will think, dream, have feelings, and - hopefully not - they will also behave just like regular people.

Shadow IT Goes Mobile
It’s Better To Bring Messaging Apps Out Of The Shadows

Organizations are implementing stricter mandates for what kind of platforms and mobile features employees can use on both personal and corporate-owned devices, prompting a dramatic increase in the rise of "shadow IT" like unauthorized messaging apps. By bringing messaging apps out of the shadows and into the mainstream, organizations can reduce the risk of both outside and inside threats to the enterprise.
