Ricoh VMSS Protects Hard Drive Losses

In environments where classified documents are copied, scanned or printed on a digital system, an image of that information remains on the system's internal hard drive. Without permanently deleting these items, confidential information can potentially fall into the wrong hands -- a security risk that businesses and government agencies want to avoid at all costs. Internal hard drives are necessary in Multifunction Products (MFPs) to carry out complicated functions such as network printing and scanning. Yet, these traditional hard drives retain latent data, posing a security risk as unauthorized parties can possibly recover confidential information. Built on a RAM (Random Access Memory) drive, the revolutionary VMSS solves this security dilemma by deleting this information once the system enters the "off" mode.

New Cyber Security Protocol

The same protocol could be employed in many computer networks in which two computers, hand-held communication devices or network nodes need to simultaneously verify the identity of each other. The protocol - called "delayed password disclosure" - was created by Markus Jakobsson and Steve Myers of Indiana University. It may have application in any environment where "mutual identity authentication" is required, the researchers say. This new security protocol could help to prevent consumers from getting tricked into connecting to a fake wireless hub at an airport, for example. Or the protocol could notify you that the link included in a legitimate-looking e-mail points to a fake website set up to steal your sensitive information, such as passwords and PINs to bank accounts, credit cards numbers and account numbers for online fund-transfer services.

CEO's Ignoring Security Risks

More than 70 percent of the 1,233 organizations -- representing some of the leading companies in 51 countries -- failed to list training and raising employee awareness of information security issues as a top initiative.

As organizations move toward increasingly decentralized business models through outsourcing and other external partnerships, it becomes ever more difficult for them to retain control over the security of their information and for senior management to comprehend the level of risk to which they are exposed.

Cisco Secure Servers

The new Cisco 1800 Series, Cisco 2800 Series and Cisco 3800 Series integrated services routers are the first to provide customers with an infrastructure that enables fast, secure access to business applications with optimized security, while establishing a foundation for more intelligent networks. 

"Integration of voice and network security capabilities into routers is a great way to help organizations save money and time, but the addition of these features cannot negatively impact network performance," said Jeff Wilson from Infonetics Research. "Cisco's integrated services routers will help many organizations build more efficient and robust IP networks."

I.T. Security Facility For Qld

NICTA has been throwing money around recently - it announced last month it would establish a $A50 million facility in Melbourne. NICTA was launched with a bankroll of $A129.5 million over 5 years (from 2001-2006) in 2001 and this stash will be buoyed by an additional $A251 million over five years (2006-11).
