What lessons can be learned from the latest cyber attack on the US State Department?

The news has just leaked out: The US State Department was recently the victim of a cyber-attack. The attack is believed to have taken place a few weeks ago, shortly after a Senate committee warned of the risk of a data breach. What is surprising is that this is not the first time the State Department has been the subject of a cyber-attack. Indeed, it was one of dozens of federal agencies - and thousands of private data networks (more than 18,000 government and private computer networks) - hit by the massive SolarWinds breach in December 2020. What then of the computer security lessons learned from the Department of Defense (DOD) "Zero Trust Reference Architecture"(1) and from the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Special Publication 800-207 on "COMPUTER SECURITY" devoted to the ZERO TRUST ARCHITECTURE (2)? Is this just another example of the famous saying that it is the shoemaker who is the worst shod? Or should we look further and analyse the con

KASEYA CRASH

  I can't help but draw a parallel between KASEYA and SOLARWINDS. Both companies offer I would say "hyper-integrated" solutions, the "all in one", management and security, easy to use and both put forward the IT security not only of their solution but especially of the whole IT system of the users.   And both seem to either be adept at "do as I say, not as I do" unless they are deceiving users about the quality and effectiveness of their solutions. On closer inspection, both offer full visibility that should allow for immediate reaction and data protection. It is clear that both companies were unable to detect the early stages of the attacks, despite the vaunted performance of their security solutions. The fault of these two companies is that they wanted to "hyper-integrate" everything, the IT protection solution with the IT management solution. Data management and IT security cannot be integrated in one product. Of course, when

IS ZERO RISK ACHIEVABLE?

  IS ZERO RISK ACHIEVABLE?     The forecasts in the field of cyber security are all more pessimistic than the others. Those made for the year 2020 were already not sad and unfortunately the actuality only confirmed them: It is said that computer attacks have exploded in 2020. We talk about exponential curve and inventiveness of the attackers (Guillaume Poupard, general director of ANSSI - National Agency for Information Systems Security) and this statement is valid for the whole world.   1.   The following list, which only shows a few of the most resounding attacks month by month, only confirms this observation:   -           January 2020 : Travelex, Manor Independent Scool District, WAWA, Microsoft… -           February 2020 : Estee Lauder, Danish Tax Portal, DOD DISA (White House), General Electric, UK Financial Conduct Authority… -           March 2020 : T-Mobile, Mariott, Whisper, UK Home Office, Virgin Media, MCA Wizard… -           April 2020 : US Small
