Following the Wh1t3 Rabbit - Practical Enterprise Security

Enterprise Security organizations often find themselves caught between the ever-changing needs of the agile business, and the ever-present, ever-evolving threats to that business. At the same time – all too often we security professionals get caught up in “shiny object syndrome” which leads us to spend poorly, allocate resources unwisely, and generally de-couple from the organization we’re chartered to defend. Knowing how to defend begins with knowing what you’ll be defending, why it is worth defending, and who you’ll be defending from… and therein lies the trick. This blog takes the issue of enterprise security head-on, challenging outdated thinking and bringing a pragmatic, business-aligned, beyond the tools perspective … so follow the Wh1t3 Rabbit and remember that tools alone don’t solve problems, strategic thinkers are the key.

OT: ICANN Updates Whois Data Problem Reporting System

 While not directly tied to Web Application Security this topic is interesting because it deals a blow to poorly-registered (and improperly setup) domains - possibly aiding in things like phishing and other criminal activities.

  ICANN has updated the WDPRS (Whois Data Problem Reporting System) to better allow people to report domains with invalid or incorrect WHOIS entries.  If you've fought to take down a domain, or tried to investigate who owns a particular domain (to potentially assist in helping recover someone's hacked domain) this will be an invaluable tool.
