BANKER DOUBLES DOWN ON MINING

By AusCERT

GUEST CONTRIBUTION: Australia’s pioneer cyber emergency response team, AusCERT, recently took the lead role in coordinating the annual drill for the Asia Pacific Computer Emergency Response Team.

This drills tests the response capability of leading Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRT) within the Asia Pacific economies.

As the lead, AusCERT created the scenario and orchestrated the creation of “the inject” – which are the prompts sent to all involved teams. 

The theme of this year’s drill was “Banker doubles down on Mining”, where participants had to handle the case of a local business affected by malware infection that was triggered by a data breach.

AusCERT was not alone in contributing to the implementation or final success of the drill. Contribution, from infrastructure such as ticketing systems, communication, and artefact creations came from various other national computer emergency response teams around the Asia Pacific.

AusCERT led and coordinated these teams and various resources to ensure that the end result of this cyber security drill was satisfactory — that is, APCERT/CSIRT, partners, and guest CERTs/CSIRTs from around the globe, are ready and capable to cooperate in managing incidents as they come, both now and in the future.

LAYER 1 ENCRYPTION A KEY TO CYBER-SECURITY SOLUTION

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).

Get the full details on Layer-1 encryption solutions straight from PacketLight’s optical networks experts.
