LastPass releases its 3rd Annual Global Password Security report

Graham Cluley Security News is sponsored this week by the folks at LastPass. Thanks to the great team there for their support!

LastPass has analyzed over 47,000 businesses to bring you insights into security behavior worldwide. The report helps you explore changes in password security practices worldwide, and see where businesses are still putting themselves at risk.

The takeaway is clear: Many businesses are making significant strides in some areas of password and access security – but there is still a lot of work to be done. Use of important security measures like multifactor authentication is up, but the continued reality of poor password hygiene still hampers many business’ ability to achieve high standards of security.

In the report, we not only highlight key trends by company size, sector, and location, we provide analysis and recommendations to help IT and business leaders take action where it’s needed most.

Download the free report now to see the current state of password security, access, and authentication around the world – and learn what you can do today to better secure your company.


If you’re interested in sponsoring my site for a week, and reaching an IT-savvy audience that cares about computer security, you can find more information here.

4th Annual Cyber Security for Defense

General Cybersecurity Conference

 June 25 – 27, 2018 | Washington DC, United States

Cybersecurity Conference Description 

Our Cyber Security for Defense series has proved to present the hottest and most critical topics within the Cyber Defense sector. Our three successful iterations have brought in a combined total of 600 attendees & speakers.

We recently learned from DISA, CIA, U.S. Army Cyber Protection Brigade, FBI, ODNI, Marine Corps, and Joint Staff J-6 (to name a few!) about how our defense and intelligence sector is combatting cyber real-world threats & attacks, and how we can better collaborate amongst the private sector.

As more Defense commands demand cyber security solutions to protect our country, the conversation must be expanded. That’s where the 4th Cyber Security for Defense comes in, covering priorities from our nation’s top military agencies on defending the United States from cyber attacks. Be sure to check back in for updates regarding next year’s conference.

17th Annual Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 June 18 – 19, 2018 | Innsbruck, Austria

Cybersecurity Conference Description 

Information security and privacy continue to grow in importance, as threats proliferate, privacy erodes, and attackers find new sources of value. Yet the security of information systems and the privacy offered by them depends on more than just technology. Each requires an understanding of the incentives and trade-offs inherent to the behavior of people and organizations. As society’s dependence on information technology has deepened, policy-makers have taken notice. Now more than ever, careful research is needed to characterize accurately threats and countermeasures, in both the public and private sectors.

The Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS) is the leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information security and privacy, combining expertise from the fields of economics, social science, business, law, policy, and computer science. Prior workshops have explored the role of incentives between attackers and defenders of information systems, identified market failures surrounding Internet security, quantified risks of personal data disclosure, and assessed investments in cyber-defense. The 2018 workshop will build on past efforts using empirical and analytic tools not only to understand threats, but also to strengthen security and privacy through novel evaluations of available solutions.

2nd Annual FINSEC 2018

Cybersecurity Finance Event

 March 5 – 6, 2018 | Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Cybersecurity Conference Description

Digital transformation in the BFSI industry has not only led to the rapid growth of fintech but is also disrupting the traditional banking system as we know it. While technology offers several opportunities and advantages, it also represents its fair share of security concerns and threats. Emerging channels, such as mobile banking, digital banking platforms, Internet of Things (IoT) etc., are being exploited by cyber criminals. Over the past few years, the BFSI industry in the Middle East has become one of the prime targets for highly sophisticated and targeted attacks.

Digitisation is expected to increase the annual cost of cybercrime to US$ 6 trillion by 2021. In light of the recent ransomware attacks, global spending on security products and services is projected to exceed US$ 1 trillion over the next five years. Although banks are increasing their spending to protect customers and data, security is no longer a one-size-fits-all solution. Security professionals must be equipped with adequate intelligence to stay ahead of ever-evolving technology and changing user behavior.

The second edition of Finsec–The Banking Security Summit will bring together leading decision makers and solution providers to share case studies and address key challenges. Information security professionals will have the opportunity to discover the latest technologies, developments and strategies to protect their organisations against cybercrime. The summit will guide organisations on how to make comprehensive security decisions that will define their bank’s future.
