Can You Stomach The SPAM?

Posted by Matt Peterson
Most of us go through our daily routines of digesting a healthy amount of SPAM without ever noticing its nutritional value.  There are several factors that help those responsible for securing ourselves with understanding the multiple flavors this wonderful package brings us in the form of email.  For security administrators, we often choose "delete" like every other user, but certainly there are some value in determining the various trends associated that make people want more SPAM!  Why?  Because if it didn't work, we would no longer have all this SPAM sitting around.
Don't knock it 'till you try it!  Go ahead, open up that email and take a look at the messaging involved, and you'll notice the increasing smell

CCSK Training in San Jose, June 8-10

Posted by Jose Malacara
This week I was planning on writing about my experience with the CSA's CCSK certification exam. There has been a slight change of plans.

CSA Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge

Posted by Jose Malacara
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you’ve probably heard many companies touting the benefits of cloud computing ad nauseam. These days it seems like everyone has gone nebulous and jump on the cloud computing bandwagon.  While services like Gmail, Netflix and have become household names, how do we as industry professionals sort through the buzz and distinguish true cloud players from those who are just blowing smoke? The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) may have the answer.
In September of 2010, the CSA announced the availability of its Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge, or CCSK, certification. More and more organizations are looking to take advantage of cloud computing in order to lower
