Security Field Day 10

It's that time of year again when the security delegates from Tech Field Day descend on Silicon Valley (well, in this case, descend virtually on Silicon Valley) to hear about the cool new things vendors are doing in the security space. This year, I was fortunate to be one of the presenters at XFD10 along with my partner in crime, Matt Honea, Head of Security and Compliance at Forward Networks.

Forward Networks Digital Twin Prevents Misconfigurations Identified by CISA and NSA

In a recently released Cybersecurity Advisory, the National Security Agency (NSA) and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) highlighted the most common cybersecurity misconfigurations in large organizations identified through blue team and red team assessments. The advisory stated that these misconfigurations illustrate systemic weakness in many large organizations, including those with mature cyber postures.

Digital Twin Technology Included in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking, 2023

Navigating the ever-changing technology landscape is challenging, especially with the constant influx of new technologies. The Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives you a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals. The Gartner Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking, 2023 includes digital twin technology.

Mergers don't have to be a nightmare for IT teams

When it comes to merger and acquisition activity – 2023 is poised to be an active year despite uncertain macroeconomic conditions. As always, financial due diligence will be the cornerstone of successful M&A endeavors. Unfortunately for IT teams, there’s no similar process for scrutinizing the network.

Unlocking the Secrets of Spanish Slang: A Closer Look at Cybersecurity Lingo

Spain has one of the biggest cybersecurity markets in Europe. By the end of 2023, it's estimated to be worth more than $2.4 billion. There's a good reason for this. According to recent reports by ESET, Spanish users are particularly at risk from remote desktop attacks. In a single fourth-month period alone, Span suffered more than 50 billion remote desktop attacks. While this comes as a real concern for computer users, the growing trend of cyber attacks presents lucrative career prospects. From entry-level penetration testers to senior security analyst roles, there are plenty of rewarding roles out there.

Tame the CVE Beast using a Digital Twin

There are never enough hours in the day to do everything. I think we all have a to-do list that is at least twice as long as the time available to complete it. To cope, we prioritize what’s “on fire” or what has the most potential to immediately cause damage if it’s not taken care of. Often the things we “should” focus on fall to the wayside as they are outshined by what we must do immediately.

Making Operations More Agile and Efficient with a Digital Twin

On January 25, Forward Networks was honored to host Cloud Field Day 16. We especially enjoy working with the delegates because of their industry experience and objective viewpoints; in fact, we launched our product at a Networking Field Day in 2017. This blog is the first in a series covering our Cloud Field Day 16 presentations.


The Security Implications of A Digital Twin

Digital twins are digital replicas of physical assets, processes, and systems, and they are used to perform simulations and analysis to optimise the real-world performance of those assets, processes, or systems. They have become increasingly popular in many industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, and transportation. However, as digital twins become more prevalent, it is important to consider the cybersecurity implications of these technologies.
