@Risk: Security Alert
OUCH! Security Awareness
Case Leads DFIR Digest
Industrial Control Systems
Industrials & Infrastructure


@RISK provides a reliable weekly summary of (1) newly discovered attack vectors, (2) vulnerabilities with active new exploits, (3) insightful explanations of how recent attacks worked, and other valuable data

A key purpose of the @RISK is to provide the data that will ensure that the 20 Critical Controls (the US and UK benchmark for effective protection of networked systems) continue to be the most effective defenses for all known attack vectors. But since it is also valuable for security practitioners, SANS is making it available to the 145,000 security practitioners who have completed SANS security training and others at their organizations who hope to stay current with the offensive methods in use.

TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: Cisco Fabric Services flaw in FXOS and NX-OS


******************** Sponsored By A10 Networks ***************


DDoS attackers have evolved by weaponizing IoT devices. However, defenders continue to depend on technologies developed in the 2000s that lack the precision, scalability or automation needed to fight in the current cyber battlefield.  Join us on this webinar with John Pescatore and Don Shin, Security Advocate at A10 Networks, to learn the techniques you must incorporate into your security strategy.
