Law Firms Should Tap Into External Cybersecurity Expertise By Chuck Brooks
High Performance Counsel
November 23, 2020
The topic of cybersecurity has not a specialized area of expertise at most law firms, internally or for clients. Of course there are some exceptions to that statement in the larger legal community, especially related to compliance and insurance issues. It is not surprising that law firms lack expertise as the leadership at law firms mirrors the leadership in the corporate world where cybersecurity has been traditionally considered an afterthought. In today’s changing digital ecosystem, law firms can no longer afford to remain disconnected from the reality of breaches and cyber-threats.

Last August, the Air Force and DOD’s Defense Digital Service ran a competition intended to spur interest in aerospace cybersecurity. The challenge was called “Hack-A-Sat” and hackers were able to take control of a satellite. While it was a controlled event, the hackers demonstrated why protecting space-based assets from cyberthreats needs to be a new priority.

GovCon Expert Chuck Brooks: Security by Design Needed to Safeguard Energy Infrastructure From Cyber Attacks
GovconWire
July 06, 2020
Chuck Brooks, a GovCon Expert and president of Brooks Consulting International, virtually addressed the G20 forum Sunday, July 5, on energy systems cybersecurity during the Workshop on Energy Security and Markets Stability.

Brooks told G20 member countries that cyber attacks are always evolving when it comes to capabilities and tactics and that state actors, “hackavists” and other attackers homing in on energy critical infrastructure “have become more “technologically sophisticated.”

“The scale and frequency of attacks are alarming,” he said. “Adversaries have gained a deeper knowledge of control systems and how they can be attacked and can employ weaponized malware.”

Brooks noted that connectivity driven by the adoption of industrial internet of things and operational technology has further expanded the attack surface and that energy infrastructure operators should implement “security by design” to counter cyber threats.

“Protecting critical energy infrastructure from cyber attacks requires security by design. It necessitates building Agile systems with operational cyber-fusion to be able to monitor, recognize and respond to emerging threats,” he said.

The G20 is an international forum for economic cooperation and is chaired by Saudi Arabia this year. Member countries account for approximately 80 percent of the world’s economic output, 75 percent of international trade and two-thirds of the world population.

The Covid19 pandemic has awakened the globe to our era of global connectivity and has also exposed our vulnerabilities in cyberspace. As we have transitioned to remote work on our home on secured portals, devices, and personal Wi-Fi, we have become more of a target to cybercrime.

According to Barracuda networks, The number of coronavirus COVID-19-related email attacks has increased by 667 per cent since the end of February. And between March 1 and March 23, Barracuda researchers detected 467,825 spear phishing email attacks, and 9,116 of those detections were related to COVID-19.

The world is becoming digital, unfortunately much faster as we isolate ourselves on our computers at home sheltering from the COVID-19 virus. As we work remote on our home on secured portals, devices, and personal Wi-Fi, we have become more vulnerable to cybercrime. Microsoft had estimated that by 2020 over 4 billion people will be online, many in remote work environments. That number is far, far larger because of the consequences of the COVID-19 virus.

Public and Private Sector Partnerships Addressing COVID-19 Are A Model for Cybersecurity by Chuck Brooks
Cybertheory
May 13, 2020
A silver lining of the current Covid-19 pandemic has been the cooperation of industry and government who have been working closely together to bring solutions that alleviate supply shortages, and cultivate treatments to combat the lethal virus. Not since World War II have we witnessed such a monumental effort of companies adapting their manufacturing lines to build emergency medical products, and collaboratively work with public sector on the greater mission. This Covid-19 working model of addressing threats via Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) should be replicated to help meet the challenges of cyber-securing our digital world.

Chuck Brooks: Government Focused on Securing the Cyber Supply Chain
GOVCON
April 28, 2020
Supply chain cyber-attacks can be perpetrated from nation state adversaries, espionage operators, criminals or hackavists. Their goals are to breach contractors, systems, companies and suppliers via the weakest links in the chain. This is often done through taking advantage of poor security practices of suppliers, embedding compromised (or counterfeit) hardware and software, or from insider threats within networks.

The CyberAvengers: 5 Tips To Improve Your Cybersecurity Posture In 2019
ITSP MAGAZINE
January 23, 2019
So here we are in early 2019, looking back at 2018 which was arguably an IT and network security dumpster fire. There were breaches of epic proportions, and breaches of trust and confidence. But 2017 was no better, ending with the aftermath of the Equifax breach, which affected approximately 143 million customers.

Which leaves us with the question of whether we whine, moan and complain about the past — or do something to change the cybersecurity game in 2019, to change the paradigm of pain and suffering. We suggest that the latter is much more beneficial, as it has the potential for good things to happen.

January 20, 2019
The Internet of Things (IoT) broadly refers to devices and equipment that are readable, recognizable, locatable, addressable and/or controllable via the internet. This includes everything from edge computing devices to home appliances, from wearable technology to cars. IoT represents the melding of the physical world and the digital worked, as sensors are not costly and wireless access is now ubiquitous.

These days, if a device can be turned on, it can most likely be connected to the internet. Because of this, data can be shared quickly across a multitude of objects and devices, thereby increasing the rate of communications.

Why Computer Passwords Are Still a Problem in 2019
Nextgov
January 11, 2019
There was a recent article before the holiday break on the complexity of computer passwords. The top “worst” password for 2018 was “123456.” Close behind in second place was “password.” They were also in first and second place in 2017. Slightly more complex was “123456789,” in third place in 2018, with the one-character shorter version, “12345678” just behind in fourth place. You get the gist.

Passwords are one of the critical problems in cybersecurity today. They are too easy to guess. They are too easy to break. All a hacker needs is your user ID (say, e.g. notsodifficult@password.com) and he or she can be off to the races in a matter of minutes invading your employee email account. Likely he also will be able to raid many of your other online accounts (like shopping, online gaming and streaming video) because you thought your lame password was so tricky that it was worthy of reusing in your 10 other accounts. The technical term for what happens here is an account takeover. In this case times 10. Re-using a lame password is problem one.

PERSPECTIVE: Honor Native Americans’ Security Contributions with More Cyber Training
Homeland Security Today
October 07, 2018
Native American contributions to U.S. national security have been largely unheralded. Native Americans have served in the U.S. Armed Forces in every major military conflict since the Revolutionary War. Twenty-eight Native Americans have the earned the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest decoration for military valor. The Navajo Code Talkers of World War II played an amazing role in helping the U.S. and allies achieve victory. Today over 24,000 Native Americans serve in the Armed Forces and have the highest per capita rate of military service of any ethnic group protecting the homeland.

Israel: Accelerating Global Cybersecurity Innovation
Cyberstartup Observatory
October 01, 2018
Last year, Tom Bossert, former White House homeland security and counterterrorism adviser, disclosed the new partnership to combat cyberattacks during remarks at an annual cybersecurity conference in Tel Aviv.

“These high-level meetings represent the first step in strengthening bilateral ties on cyber issues following President Trump’s visit to Israel,” Bossert said at Cyber Week 2017, according to Reuters. “The agility Israel has in developing solutions will innovate cyber defenses that we can test here and bring back to America,” the White House aide continued. “Perfect security may not be achievable but we have within our reach a safer and more secure Internet.”

A Scoville Heat Scale For Measuring Cybersecurity
Forbes
September 05, 2018
The Scoville Scale is a measurement chart used to rate the heat of peppers or other spicy foods. It can also can have a useful application for measuring cybersecurity threats. Cyber-threats are also red hot as the human attack surface is projected to reach over 6 billion people by 2022. In addition, cyber-crime damage costs are estimated to reach $6 trillion annually by 2021. The cybersecurity firm RiskIQ states that every minute approximately 1,861 people fall victim to cyber-attacks, while some $1.14 million is stolen. In recognition of these alarming stats, perhaps it would be useful to categorize cyber-threats in a similar scale to the hot peppers we consume.

Avatars, Bots, And AI – Emerging Tech For Digital Government
Bizcatalyst 360°
June 05, 2018
In a new era of fiscal belt-tightening, the combination of technological innovation and transformational digital processes in customer engagement has become a specialized mission for many government agencies.

Government agencies are faced with the challenge to keep pace with rising expectations from the public to deliver the same level of service received in the private sector or, better. Consequently, federal agencies have integrated service metrics from commercial best practices and are looking for companies with industry customer relations experience to model their outreach programs. They are recognizing that industry metrics, based on proven consistency, efficiency, and quality of services, allows for a more predictable allocation of capital resources. It also translates to lower cost for federal agencies combined with deeper and more flexible insights into data for improved citizen engagement.
