[ISN] NIST outlines guidance for security of copiers, scanners

http://gcn.com/articles/2015/02/25/nist-replication-device-security.aspx By GCN Staff Feb 25, 2015 The National Institute of Standards and Technology announced its internal report 8023: Risk Management for Replication Devices is now available.

[ISN] Australian infosec budgets are probably wrong: Deloitte

http://www.zdnet.com/article/australian-infosec-budgets-are-probably-wrong-deloitte/ By Stilgherrian ZDNet News February 4, 2015 Australian organisations are lagging when it comes to shifting the focus of their information security efforts from merely securing their networks to detecting intrusions, responding to them, and building resilience, according to senior security and risk executives from Deloitte, the international consulting firm. Deloitte divides an organisation’s infosec spend into three areas, each labelled with an adjective. “Secure” is the technology that protects critical assets against known and emerging threats across the ecosystem. This includes traditional network protection capabilities such as firewalls, anti-malware and anti-spam systems, and intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS). “Vigilant” is about having the intelligence and monitoring capabilities to detect both known and unknown bad-guy activities, and understanding the extent to which they’re a risk to the business.

[ISN] White House Debuts Dot-Gov Cyber Enforcement Squad

http://www.nextgov.com/cybersecurity/2015/02/white-house-debuts-dot-gov-cyber-enforcement-squad/104313/ By Aliya Sternstein Nextgov.com February 2, 2015 The Obama administration will spend about $20 million on a new White House cyber unit to oversee dot-gov network security, including, for the first time, making sure agencies notify victims of breaches according to a specific timetable. The “E-gov Cyber” division, housed within the Office of Management and Budget, is aimed at making clear OMB’s role in governmentwide cybersecurity: policymaking and enforcement. The newly enacted 2014 Federal Information Security Modernization Act formally tasks the Department of Homeland Security with operational aspects of guarding the dot-gov network, and cements OMB’s strategic role. For 2014 and 2015, Congress “provided OMB resources for improving cybersecurity oversight analytics,” Acting U.S. Chief Information Officer Lisa Schlosser told Nextgov on Monday, referring to the $20 million funding allocation. Obama’s 2016 budget proposal requests $35 million for that account. In partnership with the National Security Council, DHS and the Commerce Department, E-gov Cyber will “conduct data-driven, risk-based oversight of agency governmentwide security programs,” Schlosser said during an interview.
