Issue OverviewInformation Security magazine - February 2014 Vol. 16 / No. 1
The complexity of emerging technologies and trends such as BYOD has security teams operating at full speed, and there's no sign of slowing down. In our inaugural issue of 2014, we look at the top cyberthreats that security professionals are likely to face this year. Defending enterprise networks has never been harder, according to Johannes Ullrich, head of the SANS Technology Institute's Internet Storm Center, who examines upcoming attack techniques and discovers new versions of tried-and-true hacking methods.
Advanced malware detection is also evolving, and we report on new strategies as security teams fight back with help from global services. We also address security issues after the gadget-filled holidays in a new column on mobile security. Finally, take a tour of the deep Web, and find out how security professionals can intercept Tor and Bitcoin activities on corporate assets. Access >>>
