Changes / Fixes:In the “Getting Started” video prompt upon account creation: it eludes to a quiz after each module to move on. At this time, this is not the case #4 - add comma after “comfortable” #5 - Change “till” to “UNTIL” #6 - Change copy to match current webpage copy - “Congratulations! You are now certified as a threat modeler practitioner on the ThreatModeler platform.” When a Module is selected, a “Grades” tab appears below the module. When you click into the Grades tab, an error pops up “Can not view grades.More information about this error” Assessment In the Academy Assessment description, it says to: “Once the two threat models are complete and all tasks inside the canvas are done, proceed to place an image of threat model built under point 2 above.” However, I cannot upload a PNG image in the module section. Additionally the notes in the prebuilt assessment threatmodel tell me to copy a link into the Community. If I were a student, I wouldn’t know which link to cop
Imagine a world where money loses its meaning. Not due to hyperinflation, but because hackers have crippled the very institutions that hold it safe. This is the chilling reality financial institutions face in the digital age, where cyber threats evolve faster than defenses. The backbone of our economy, financial institutions, are undergoing a digital transformation . While they embrace innovations like decentralized finance and compete with tech-savvy FinTech startups, a shadow looms large: cybersecurity threats. As the second most targeted sector globally, they face a relentless onslaught from sophisticated adversaries exploiting the very transformation shaping their future. This isn't just about stolen cash; it's about operational meltdowns, shattered trust, and reputational ruin. Legacy systems, a cornerstone of stability, become doorways for attackers. The pressure to innovate clashes with the need for impenetrable security. But there's hope! In this article we will discuss the pot
Hey Cyber Champions! After battling through a week filled with cyber threats and security challenges, it's time to kick back, relax, and let out a well-deserved chuckle. So here's a little something to bring a smile to your face as you gear up for the weekend: 😄Have a fantastic weekend, everyone! #threatmodeling #ThreatModeler #cybermeme #applicationsecurity #funfriday
Blockchain technology is, essentially, a highly secure digital ledger system designed to ensure trust and accuracy in transactions. It operates by organizing data into blocks, with each block containing a set of transactions. These blocks are then linked together to form a chain, creating a chronological record of transactions. What makes blockchain so secure is its use of cryptography, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone to tamper with the data once it's been added to the chain. Furthermore, blockchain operates on the principle of decentralization, meaning that instead of having a single authority in control, the responsibility is distributed across a network of participants. This decentralization ensures that there is no single point of failure, making the system highly resilient. Additionally, before a transaction is added to the chain, there must be a consensus among the participants in the network, ensuring that only valid transactions are recorded. This consensus mechan
In today's fast-paced digital world, cybersecurity remains a constant concern as threats continue to evolve alongside technological advancements. One crucial area demanding immediate attention is the protection of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). APIs act as the bridge connecting various software applications, playing a vital role in modern architectures like microservices and cloud integrations. However, their very nature, which involves granting access to sensitive data, makes them enticing targets for cyber attackers. Recent reports from Salt Labs highlight a staggering 681% increase in malicious API traffic in 2022, while VentureBeat reveals a 286% rise in API threats quarter over quarter. Shockingly, within the last 12 months, 41% of organizations encountered API security incidents, with a troubling 63% leading to data breaches or loss. This underscores the urgent need for organizations to prioritize API security measures to safeguard their valuable data and mitigate the

What is an attack surface ? An attack surface refers to all the points, interfaces, and avenues through which an attacker can try to enter or extract information from a system, network, or application. It represents the sum total of vulnerabilities and entry points that could potentially be exploited by a threat actor or hacker to carry out a cyber attack. Software: Includes applications, operating systems, and software dependencies. Vulnerabilities within software, whether known or unknown, create opportunities for exploitation. Network Interfaces: Encompasses network devices, ports, protocols, and services. Open ports or poorly configured network interfaces can be entry points for attackers. Web Applications: Websites, web services, and web-based platforms. Vulnerabilities in web applications can be targeted to gain unauthorized access or compromise sensitive data. Hardware Devices: Physical devices connected to a network, such as IoT devices, servers, routers, and other hardw

Are you feeling these Monday morning woes? Don't worry! We've got just the solution to kickstart your week with a dose of lighthearted cybersecurity knowledge. Who says cybersecurity can't be fun? Here's your chance to spice up your Monday with some cybersecurity facts that will have you grinning from ear to ear! Salting Your PasswordsYou might think "salting" has something to do with seasoning your coffee, but in the world of cybersecurity, it's all about adding some extra spice to your passwords! Just like adding a pinch of salt enhances the flavor of your food, in the cybersecurity realm, salting means enhancing the security of your passwords.When you salt a password, you add random characters or values to it before encrypting it. This makes it much harder for cybercriminals to crack your password, turning it into a cryptographic masterpiece. So, next time you hear salting, don't reach for the salt shaker; it's all about protecting your digital secrets! The Original Computer BugYo

Google's Threat Analysis Group (TAG) published a blog update on October 16, 2020, outlining how threats and threat actors are adapting their strategies in light. Similarly GitHub, was hit with a DDoS attack that clocked in at 1.35 terabits per second and lasted for roughly 20 minutes. According to GitHub, the traffic was traced back to “over a thousand different autonomous systems (ASNs) across tens of thousands of unique endpoints.”A distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is a cybercrime in which the attacker floods a server with internet traffic to prohibit users from accessing linked online services and websites. It is a brute-force attempt to slow down or fully crash a server. https://portswigger.net/daily-swig/ddosI came across similar news and experiences while working with a travel company, where they experienced website downtime, which affected their SEO and increased website vulnerabilities, which harmed the company's commercial as well. As a result, they took too long to
