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
Expansion of the Threat Modeling Tools Market and its estimated worth of $1.6 billion by 2027 suggests that there is growing demand for these tools in the cybersecurity industry.Read Full Article- https://finance.yahoo.com/news/threat-modeling-tools-market-worth-163000694.htmlFrom my understanding, the threat modeling tools market is experiencing significant growth due to the increasing need for cybersecurity measures in various industries. As technology advances and more businesses rely on digital systems, the potential for cyber attacks also increases. Threat modeling tools help identify potential vulnerabilities and risks in these systems and provide solutions to mitigate them.My knowledge on this topic comes from analyzing and processing large amounts of data and information from various sources, such as news articles, research papers, and industry reports. Through natural language processing and machine learning algorithms, I can understand and interpret complex information and pr
https://www.govinfosecurity.com/heart-device-maker-says-hack-affected-1-million-patients-a-21425It looks like it was personal information that was stolen, but that’s the sort of information that would be helpful in hacking into actual connected devices, which already exist and have had security issues: https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.118.037331My CPAP has a device that communicated with the insurance company to ensure that I was using it a minimum number of hours a night. Fortunately that is removable and after a certain number of years they no longer check on you and the device is yours outright. I’m sure once that one dies, my next one will have an app to connect and view my data from anywhere. Not sure if I’ll be enabling that feature. Anyone else have any connected medical devices?

Did anyone watch this video the Wall Street Journal published? Cybersecurity experts warn that EVs will be ripe targets for hackers unless more attention is paid to the risk. I think I'm like most people following the trend of wanting a more eco-friendly environment, but I can't help but worry that electric vehicles are especially vulnerable to cyberattacks. Click here for the video To start, many EVs today have the same "connected" features found in a smartphone, meaning they come with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This means hackers could potentially access the car's systems remotely to control its functions or retrieve data from it. Hackers could also use a car's navigation system to track its movements, or even disable the vehicle completely.Ultimately, there's no way to guarantee an EV won't be hacked, but automakers and security experts can work together to protect against cyber threats and make sure EVs are as safe as possible. As more people switch over to electric vehicles,
“According to an ESG survey, DevOps, without an embedded security process, produces some uncomfortable results. For instance, 45% of software releases didn’t go through any security checks or testing, while 35% of new builds are deployed to production with misconfigurations, vulnerabilities or other security issues.One reason (34%) for these dismal results? Security can’t keep up with the cadence of software releases. To improve these results, something must change, and one impactful change is incorporating continuous threat modeling into the DevOps flow.”Read the rest here.What’s been your experience with DevSecOps and integrating security into development? One good experience I had was working at Automox with a CISO who described himself as “the most business friendly CISO you’re ever going to meet”. He’s now head of security at Zoom so that strategy has been wonderful for his career. And it was a pleasure to work with him on company security concerns.Any success or horror stories
Emerging technologies: How are emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT) impacting Cybersecurity?

It’s that time of year when small children bring home germs...and I’ve been catching every single one! Does anyone have any immune system boosters? Catching every little bug is starting to get a little exhausting! Is there a vitamin combo I don’t know about? Do I need to be doing things above Cloroxing the whole house? Help a threat modeler out!
https://www.afcea.org/signal-media/cyber-edge/europe-tackle-cyber-new-lawIt looks like they’re planning a two-tiered system of requirements, and tightening up reporting requirements.It’s going to be a messy time for cybersecurity, although on the plus side we’re getting (hopefully) better regulation, and there’s going to be a ton of work to go around for those of us in the field. This will be the first update to the cybersecurity regulations since 2016.What would you hope to see in the results of this new law? Any predictions of what’s likely to be in there?
With threat modeling there needs to be a constant interaction between Risk Management, Regulatory Compliance and modeling the threats. Within Risk Management, and eventually percolated through to threat modeling, several methodologies (i.e. STRIDE, PASTA, CVSS etc.) seemingly exist. How should a threat modeler choose one over the other? Is there a better way club all these methodologies into one concise method of doing threat modeling?
Since ThreatModeler does not support file directories, what are people using to emulate that? We are adding a read only group, which 99% of my user base is in, to our existing threat models so everyone can see each other’s work and we had a lot of orphaned threat models because the author left the department and we didn’t have a group owner on the threat models. What this means though, is that suddenly the threat modelers will have a huge glob of threat models, when they first log in and I was hoping to have some organization for them. thanks
