Are you a a reality TV junkie looking for your next fix? It’s harder and harder to come by with staples like The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise on hiatus with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but fear not because Netflix has you covered.

Season 2 of their addictive romantic reality title Dating Around arrives June 12 on the streaming platform. Below, we’re breaking down all the details newcomers need to know before diving into this bingeable fare.

The Premise

Each episode of this series follows one single person looking for love as they go on five different blind dates. Exploring the awkward, sweet and flirty banter common in a first date setting, Dating Around asks the question, who will get a second date? In Season 2 of the program, singles based out of New Orleans will be followed.

Stepping up its game from network dating shows, this series examines all kinds of relationships and orientations ranging from heterosexual and bisexual to same-sex couples. Dating Around is a more diverse alternative in comparison to shows like The Bachelorette or Bachelor which have recently come under fire for its lack of inclusion.

Teaser

Netflix is offering a glimpse at what’s to come in a newly released trailer which hints at some interesting situations including an awkward reunion between former Tinder matches.

Extra Viewing

If you didn’t tune in for Season 1, there are six episodes currently available for streaming on Netflix. Each installment is roughly a half-hour in length and follows six singles on their quest to find the one for them. Season 1 includes Luke, Gurki, Lex, Leonard, Sarah and Mila, but don’t expect anything beyond their blind dates as Season 1 didn’t include a reunion special like the platform’s other buzzy shows Too Hot to Handle and Love Is Blind.

Dating Around, Season 2 Premiere, Friday, June 12, Netflix

Based on interviews with nearly 1,500 cybersecurity professionals over three years, Haystax Technology released a study that makes it clear that organizations are feeling the pressure from insider threats and are ramping up detection, prevention and remediation.

“One consistent message we heard in all of these interviews was that cybersecurity professionals don’t feel equipped to stop insider attacks, despite an increase in funding for things like better controls and training,” said Haystax CEO Bryan Ware. “I’m not surprised that so many are now using analytics, as they need actionable intelligence to proactively identify and defend against threats from both malicious insiders and negligent users.”

Key findings
In 2017, 90 percent of organizations reported feeling vulnerable to insider attacks, up from 64 percent in 2015. Haystax predicts 99 percent of organizations will feel vulnerable this year as they struggle with excessive access privileges and an increasing number of devices with access to sensitive data.
Privileged users were cited as the biggest insider threat concern for 55 percent of organizations in 2017. Haystax predicts that 2018 will be the year when regular employees surpass trusted insiders as the greater risk.
Just 19 percent of organizations deployed user behavior analytics (UBA) solutions in 2016 to proactively monitor employee populations, a figure that jumped to nearly 30 percent last year.

Advanced #threats and #insider security #threats top #enterprises’ #cybersecurity #concerns, finds #Alert #Logic survey

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Alert Logic, a Security-as-a-Service provider for the cloud, has announced the results of a survey conducted with 400 UK cybersecurity professionals to better understand the evolving cyber threat landscape UK companies face.

The survey found that respondents’ confidence in their organisations’ overall cybersecurity posture is moderate to high, with only a fifth (21%) indicating they are not at all, or only slightly, confident in their organisation’s security posture.

When asked about the top challenges facing their cybersecurity teams, respondents cited detection of advanced threats (62%) and detection and/or mitigation of insider threats (48%) as the two top security challenges. Furthermore, 41% lacked advanced security staff to oversee cyber threat management and nearly a third (27%) lacked confidence in their automation tools catching all cyber threats.

“Advanced cyber threats present the most arduous task for cybersecurity professionals, and the survey results bear this out,” said Oliver Pinson-Roxburgh, EMEA director at Alert Logic. “Cyber attacks are increasingly difficult to detect, as the security threats presented by malicious actors become increasingly bold and sophisticated, particularly when attacking web applications.”

Lack of budget (51%), skilled personnel (49%) and lack of security awareness amongst employees (49%) weighed in as the most significant obstacles facing cybersecurity teams, inhibiting their organisations from adequately defending against cyber threats. In addition, when asked about the business impact of security incidents, system downtime was highlighted as having the biggest impact.

Interestingly, revenue impact was only cited as a relatively minor factor (16%), suggesting that either security teams have evolved their maturity to effectively manage risk or lack full visibility into the downstream business impact of security incidents.

Respondents were asked about the likelihood of their organisation being compromised by a successful cyber attack in the next 12 months, compared to last year. Here, the survey found a remarkably even distribution of expectations. Roughly one third (32%) expected that a compromise was likely, while a slightly smaller number (29%) felt that a compromise was less likely.

“Lack of cybersecurity awareness and budget create a strain on an organisation’s ability to combat advanced cyber threats,” said Pinson-Roxburgh. “Organisations must foster an inclusive security culture, and consider security service models if they don’t have the budget for in-house expert security staff; otherwise organisations will continue to expose their IT infrastructure and their sensitive data to risks.”

IBM: Ransomware, Insider Threats Top 2015 Cyber-Trends

2015 has been a challenging year as insider threats and malware as well as stealthy and evolving attacks affected enterprises. Taking stock, IBM Security has identified the top four cyber-threat trends of the year: amateur hacker carelessness, ransomware, insider threats and C-suite attention. The first notable trend is amateur hackers exposing sophisticated criminals in onion-layered attacks. While 80% of cyberattacks are driven by highly organized and sophisticated online crime rings, it is often inexperienced hackers (“script kiddies”) who unknowingly alert companies to these larger, sophisticated hackers lurking on a network or inside an organization. These amateur hackers leave clues like unusual folders or files in a temporary directory, deface corporate web materials, and more. When organizations look into these mischievous attacks, they often find much more complex attacks. “As the name suggests, an onion-layered security incident is one in which a second, often significantly more damaging attack is uncovered during the investigation of another more visible event,” the firm said in its Q4 2015 IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Quarterly report. “The security team has to carefully peel back layers of forensic information in order to determine the root cause of each event under scrutiny.” Also, it’s almost undeniable that 2015 […]

Revenge ‘insider’ Aviva phone hacker jailed

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Richard Neale, former director at Esselar, a company contracted by Aviva to run its security network, has been jailed for 18 months for hacking 900 phones belonging to Aviva insurance employees.  In Guildford Crown Court on Monday he admitted committing four cyber-crimes against his former company under the Computer Misuse Act 1990, described by the prosecution as acts of revenge against the company he helped set up. When Esselar was due to present a security demonstration to its client Aviva, Neale hacked into 900 mobiles belonging to the insurance company via Esselar’s security software then wiped their data. Prosecutors said this caused Esselar to miss out on an £80,000-per-year contract, with contracts and future business deals lost valued at £528,000. The company submitted a damages claim for £70,000 and described the future losses as ‘incalculable’, issuing a statement saying: “Our brand was damaged to the point we felt we needed to rebrand.” The company did rebranded itself as Mobliciti. Neale admitted to hacking into the Aviva system in May 2014. He had created a fake identity in his former company’s system and then used it to reject expenses claims from his former colleagues. Separately he hacked into Esselar’s Twitter account and […]
