HP Continues to Demonstrate its Commitment to Printer Security

In August 2018, Onliner Jeff Man attended the Black Hat Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. While at Black Hat Jeff had the opportunity to connect with the team from HP and discuss the importance, and changing landscape of printer security.
 

In early 2017, HP invited a group of cybersecurity industry bloggers and podcasters to gather for an HP Print Security “Tech Day” at their headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. The purpose of the gathering was to introduce the group to HP’s printer security program (#reinventsecurity), foster discussion, and get feedback on the program. This event was the precursor to a major marketing campaign for HP to promote everything they’ve been doing in terms of making their printers more secure and also building printers with “cyber resilience”, meaning they have the capacity to detect malicious or accidental actions and even recover from the attacks. HP has worked diligently to improve the security of printers which in turn helps to create a more secure enterprise network.

Password123! - Why Does Authentication Have to Be So Hard?

Password complexity and authentication has always been a subject of contention both for users and system  administrators. Many assume that forcing users to create more complex passwords, and changing them frequently,   will lead to greater system safety - in theory this may be true. Given human nature, things rarely go as planned and research has shown that forcing users to comply with these additional requirements has actually had a detrimental effect on system security.

In the first part of this blog series we took a look at the the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) that is coming into effect in January 2020. The implications of being off side with the new regulations are not trivial and apply to more than 500,000 US businesses according to the IAPP - not to mention any business around the world that has the personal data of California businesses and meet the relevant threshold. That is A LOT of businesses. Now how is that possible you ask? Let’s take a closer look at the businesses who will fall under the CCPA’s umbrella come 2020.

The Name of the Game is Privacy, Especially in California: Part One

Privacy and protection of personal information has almost always seemed like it should be a basic human right everywhere in the world, not only in the European Union where it has long been acknowledged as such. Within the last 10 years, however, that notion has been blurred by social media, the rise of online shopping, and subsequently the hacking of just about everything that lives on the Internet. For the longest time people have sort of just accepted this overreach and misuse of their personal information as the price you pay for using the Internet. Sure, maybe they delete Facebook for a while or change their passwords, but now that is starting to seem like it is not enough and governments from around the world are beginning to step in, in a big way.
