Vehicle Attacks: A Global Perspective

The tactics employed by terrorists and other violent extremists continues to evolve rapidly. One key evolution which has continued to hit the headlines is the use of vehicles as weapons. This tactic has been employed across the globe by individuals with a range of motivations, and was used in Canada as early as 2014, when Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was murdered by an assailant using a vehicle in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. In 2017, a vehicle attack was carried out in Edmonton. Yet again in 2018, a vehicle was used as a weapon in Toronto. While the motivations behind these attacks may vary, the new reality we need to deal with is one in which vehicles can be used as weapons, by terrorists and others. This presents a number of challenges, as it is difficult to restrict access to vehicles. So what can be done to deal with this evolving threat? In February 2018, the Conference Board’s Council on Emergency Management and Centre for National Security convened a closed-door session on vehicle attacks. Experts from the United States, Spain, Australia, and Canada shared their experiences with such incidents, generating a number of key insights for effectively dealing with this threat.

Scaling Your Cyber Security Threat Modeling Challenge

There are two schools of thought around threat modeling. One school advocates the creation of attack trees and data flow diagrams. This requires extensive, cross-functional, security skills and is not a scalable approach. The other school encourages organic insertion of defenses based only on current context without “boiling the ocean”. This lack of systems thinking leaves applications vulnerable as exploits in a weaker component can open the door to critical systems. Part of the problem is threat modeling today is largely an art. We need to inject more science in this domain and derive a repeatable and auditable approach that maps to risk. Such a model should abstract away the non-scalable elements and still provide a high degree of assurance in today’s faster velocity business context.

Artificial Intelligence versus Malware: The Fortinet Solution

Due to the wide range of readily available resources for creating malicious payloads, such as coders for hire and Software as a Service, malware is an exponentially growing issue. Threat actors are able to rapidly assemble and deploy high volumes and varieties of malicious code to unsuspecting users. Current malware management models are simply overwhelmed or incapable of providing complete protection while reducing false positives toward that magical zero rate. Until Now.

Building Cyber Resilience: AI and the Immune System Approach

The cyber-threat landscape is evolving at an unprecedented speed. Cyber-attacks are increasingly sophisticated, compounding the challenge presented by the introduction of IoT devices and expansion into the cloud. Tasked with defending networks without traditional borders, stretched human security teams simply cannot keep up. AI-powered technologies provide a needed departure from legacy approaches to cyber security and have led to self-learning, self-defending networks.

Building a Cyber Savvy Board

Cyber security continues to hit the headlines across the globe, affecting a range of organizations. The number of breaches reported and their significance keeps growing. From Equifax to Deloitte, no organization seems to be immune. It seems that the reality we need to face is that you either have been breached or you are waiting for a breach. C-suite executives seem to bear the brunt of the responsibility for major breaches, and in some cases, this costs them their jobs. However, there is an increasing amount of attention being placed on the role of the board. What should it be and how can you ensure that boards of directors are able to effectively carry out their responsibilities with regards to cyber security?
