We are going to try something a little new today.
As you have all probably realized, these posts have all been built from blogger sources to date. I am going to start expanding them to include things I see in the news and from other sources that have infosec applications. As we go forward, I am interested in knowing if you would prefer to have two separate posts or if you like the combined format.
As always, leave a comment with your opinion or email me kriggins _at_ infosecramblings.com. On with the show.
From the Blogosphere.
Jennifer Leggio has a post up on her new blog Feeds at ZDNET (congrats Jennifer) about privacy concerns with Company Groups on Linked. She points out some very real privacy and data leakage concerns for this type of automated grouping.
Richard Bejtlich has a good summary of the Verizon Business 2008 Data Breach Investigations Report which you should go ahead and read.
From the newsosphere.
Via Dark Reading, RSA is introducing a flexible card shaped authenticator.
Via SearchSecurity, The PCI council is launching an assessor quality assurance program. Kinda have to wonder why it has taken this long for something like this to happen.
The Register brings us an interesting article about fraudsters gaming the address verification system in use in the UK for charges.
Have a great day and remember, let me know which format you prefer, combined or separate.
