RSA Security

by B.K. DeLongWikileaks’ decision this week to post the first of five million emails from Texas-based strategic intelligence firm Stratfor shone a spotlight on what experts say is a serious and growing problem: lax data, network and physical security at third party vendors and service providers.  But organizations that think they can wash their hands of the security mess caused by business partners and contractors may be in for a rude awakening.

UPDATE: Call it ‘dancing with the girl that brought ‘ya,’: two weeks after it disclosed a serious security breach at its RSA Security Division, tech firm EMC said it was buying NetWitness, a threat analysis firm that helped it detect the breach in the first place.

It was a big week in security, what with the takedown of the Rustock botnet takedown, there was a major attack against security firm RSA Security. Threatpost Editor Paul Roberts had a chance to sit down with Bill Sell, host of the weekly IT security news show ITEC This Week on the Pulse Network. Paul and Bill talk about the week’s events, and do a round up of the recent RSA Security Conference.
