New Library Saves Thousands Documenting Information Security Organizational Roles and Responsibilities


Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 19, 2012

Information Shield, a global provider of information security policy and compliance products, announced the latest release of Information Security Roles and Responsibilities Made Easy (ISRRME) by Charles Cresson Wood. Now in its third revision, this library includes over 70 time-saving information security templates and expert advice designed to streamline the process of defining information security roles and responsibilities. This updated version also includes the results of our most recent and exclusive Information Security Staffing Survey, which enables organizations to benchmark their information security staffing against their peers.

Every federal and industry-specific information security mandate such as HIPAA, GLBA, and PCI-DDS, requires organizations to assign and document information security roles and responsibilities,” said David Lineman, president and CEO of Information Shield. Information Security Roles and Responsibilities Made Easy is the only product available that allows companies to quickly and effectively document the security responsibilities of over 70 different departments and job functions. Organizations can save thousands of dollars and hundreds of man-hours using this library.”

Studies show that one of the most important steps, that top management organizations can and must take in the information security area, is to clearly and logically define roles and responsibilities for internal staff, business partners, contractors, consultants, and other third parties, said the author and independent information security consultant Charles Cresson Wood, MBA, MSE, CISM, CISA, CISSP. Organizations can achieve dramatic time and cost savings over the long haul with a properly defined information security organization. For example, a recent Verizon study shows that the costs of a data breach are on average 35% less if the organization has established a CISO Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or similar position.

About Information Security Roles and Responsibilities Made Easy

Information Security Roles and Responsibilities Made Easy contains over 70 pre-written information security job descriptions, organizational mission statements, and reporting relationships. Now in its third revision, this time-saving library contains key best practices that have been used effectively by hundreds of organizations worldwide.

Web Hosting Company Host Color Offers Security Advice To Webmasters

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) December 15, 2005

Host Color LLC (http://www.hostcolor.com), a US shared web hosting company has released in its hosting support forums ( http://forum.hostcolor.com ) a number of articles on the basics of webmaster security. The company wants to raise awareness among novice webmasters of the main measures they have to take to make their sites secure. The company has been alarmed by the growth in SPAM and other hacker attacks it has observed.

Host Color has published basic guidelines on securing PHP and Perl applications. The hosting company security specialists also underline how important it is that all web applications are updated regularly.

“Our company has always placed a strong emphasis on security. The main program that we face however is that many webmasters do not realize that they need to think about all security implications when they install software on their accounts. A recent problem that we faced for example is that many of the ‘Contact us’ scripts that our customers install are vulnerable and can be used as open-relays by spammers. This causes serious problem for the servers since it can turn them into sources of spam. We have added detailed instructions on how this can be avoided. We have also give simple examples of what code and SQL injection are and how those can be stopped as well,” says Stoyan Marinov, Host Color’s Security Specialist.

Host Color also advises its web hosting customers to subscribe to the security bulletins of the open-source software that we use such as phpBB, Joomla or osCommerce. If all updates are applied in time then the security of open-source application can live up to a high standard.

On the whole the problems that Host Color describes are not critical the companys hosting servers since their software is regularly updated. Problems with a site’s security however can lead to defacing of customers websites and leakage of information. “Host Color is committed to helping our customers build a viable and functional web presence. That is why our support and system administration teams work closely together on all such problems,” assures Stoyan Marinov.

The hosting company has recently announced a Christmas promotion on web hosting services. It includes 6 free months of service and free domain name with every Max or Mega hosting plan. Non-profit organizations and academics receive an additional 15% discount on sign-up.

Website Security Shootout With Security Expert


Fishkill, NY (Vocus) July 7, 2009

Just like the old western movies, when a new gun comes into town, everyone is eager to find out how fast and deadly the newcomer really is. This would usually lead to a gunfight. Like any gunfight, there can only be one winner. That scenario was recently reenacted in the digital town they call the Internet. When SecureLive, a website security company boasted about being the fastest and deadliest, a website security expert and author just had to find out for himself by putting oh his gun belt.

SecureLive LLC, a New York based website security company recently launched a suite of website security products aimed at securing all the loopholes and doorways on a website. The system consists of software that deploys artificial intelligence and “Live” monitors to thwart hackers and thieves. SecureLive claims to protect and secure all the moving parts of a web application with a strong website security and anti-hijacking prevention system.

Now, you can’t just walk into town making such big claims and get away with it. So, website security expert Tom Canavan, author of “Joomla Web Security” (published by Packt Publishing in 2008), decided to put SecureLive through his usual grueling test. Joomla is one of many open source website platforms used by millions across the world. Mr. Canavan’s expertise goes far beyond Joomla security and into all aspects of website security. Mr. Canavan was eager to prove that this new website security for Joomla was just like all the rest and would soon fall from his smoking gun.

After Mr. Canavan’s attacks and gunfire, SecureLive remained unmoved and proved to be quite capable of taking the bullets. Without any signs of weakening or cracking, SecureLive withstood the best hacking Mr. Canavan could hurl. In fact SecureLive successfully blocked Mr. Canavan’s assaults, and consequently banned him altogether. The results not only stunned him, but prompted him to remark: “Wow – I was effectively dead in the water unless I wished to move to another location with a different IP. SecureLive stopped me and blocked me from even seeing the website. Wow!!”

The following are excerpts from Tom Canavan’s review of SecureLive:

“We used a basic IP scanner to confirm the presence of our target, then moved to a more advanced scanner to gain a deeper understanding of it. Out of this part, we did not set off any alarms and found some very interesting ports opened, that we would attempt to exploit as part of the test.”

“Gaining that traction we then moved up to a direct SQL attack on the machine — hitting a component that did not exist on the site. I wanted to test the ‘alertness’ of the software. It did not trigger anything -but that is what I would have expected – it in essence ignored my feeble attempt on attacking a non-existent component.”

“I hopped over to my CentOs Linux box, and attempted a few “cheap” hacker tricks – which of course failed, and did not set-off any alarms. That settled it – I pulled out a commercially available Cross Site Script and SQL Injection testing tool to find any weaknesses in the site.”

“Test started — and kept, going, and going…oops.. I was caught!”

“SecureLive detected my attempt to run a SQL Injection and a XSS against the site. All of the sudden my other (windows) box could no longer reach the site – 404 Page not found…hmm…Jumping over to the Linux server on a different network – no problem. SecureLive stopped me.”

“SecureLive is a Premium product that offers more value than you are paying for. With the rise in Cyber Crime, and the sophistication of the attacks and the tools, any serious site owner, who depends on their website for revenue should not be without this product guarding their site. It’s simple to install and is monitored as part of the SecureLive service. Should an attacker reach a certain threat level, the “host” of the IP is notified allowing them to take action at their end of the wire, to shut down the bad guys.”

“What I really liked was the under the covers look at the technology. They have developed a very robust and powerful system that has the flexibility to change and grow as the threats to your site will inevitably change and become even more powerful.”

“Head to http://www.securelive.net and buy it today and start being part of the solution to e-crime rather than a victim.”

ABOUT THE REVIEWER: Tom Canavan is author of Joomla! Web security, available from Amazon and a must read for any website administrator, not just Joomla! sites. He has been in the Computer industry for 24 years, and is most recently the former CIO of a large .dot com based in Texas.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT: The actual product reviewed by Mr. Canavan was SecureJoomla, a website security application by SecureLive that utilizes the same engine as all SecureLive anti-hacking products. The entire SecureLive website security applications suite are detailed at SecureLive.net.

More recent media comments:

“Once in a while a product comes along and really makes me sit up and pay attention” – Barrie M. North – JoomlaShack.com, and author of “Joomla 1.5: A User’s Guide.

“Joomlashack doesn’t give such high praise to just any old Joomla product – Barrie M. North – JoomlaShack.com, and author of “Joomla 1.5: A User’s Guide.

SecureLive blocks attack attempts first and then alerts you and a live monitor in real-time. During blocking and alerting, the system also records vital data about the attacker including attack strings used, geo-tracking and other unique signatures. This evidence is recorded in the global system and passed onto LIVE monitors, who will follow up the incident by filing a report and forwarding the evidence to the appropriate agencies seeking action against the attackers. The system is artificial intelligence enabled and adjusts your security settings (per client) automatically to become “SMARTER”. It is an intelligent learning device.

SecureLive website security incorporates Software Bots, Artificial Intelligence Technology, Complete Covert Data Acquisition, Existing Global Hacking Knowledge-base, Live Human Intervention, SMART Real-Time Diagnostics and Automation to pack three separate systems into one for a complete ROUNDED solution to today’s security threats; BLOCKING, ALERTING AND REPORTING.

This is what ALL other security systems should be doing and is a much needed product in today’s cyber environment.

WP Pipeline: Review Examines Unique Management and Security Plugin


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2012

“WP Pipeline has just been released, and webmasters around the world are excitedly installing this breakthrough software,” reports WealthSpringMarketing.com’s Tiffany Hendricks. “Considering that WordPress is the #1 blogging platform worldwide it only makes sense that this is a product that’s in high demand.”

The WP Pipeline software was developed by prominent internet marketing experts Tony Marriott and Ben Shaffer. Marriott and Shaffer recognized the need for a solution to the security issues inherent with WordPress and created WP Pipeline to help their fellow webmasters and blog owners to secure and protect their online assets.

Hendricks explains the need for WP Pipeline:

“WordPress is the go to de facto ‘go-to’ platform for anyone starting getting into the website game these days,” says Hendricks. “The reason is simple, it’s an amazingly versatile platform that also happens to be ‘newbie’ friendly. The problem is that WordPress can quickly become vulnerable to hacker attacks when plugins aren’t regularly updated and other security measures aren’t taken.”

WP Pipeline addresses these issues by offering users a range of security features including the ability to update all of one’s plugins, themes, and versions of WordPress across every blog a customer owns or manages for clients. Users can manage all their WordPress blogs from a central location and see automatically if any blogs are down or in need of updates.

In addition to WP Pipeline’s security features, the software also allows users to back up, and clone their blogs, create new blogs, and deploy multiple themes and plugins on all their blogs with a single mouse click.

“The amount of features included in WP Pipeline is staggering,” says Hendricks. “The organizational controls allow users to save hours upon hours of time doing blog maintenance. Those tasks are tedious, and if you have more than a handful of blogs it can really eat up your time. That said, I think that the WP Pipeline’s security capabilities make this plugin a must have for anyone using WordPress. After all, all it takes is one security breach to sink a website and stop an income stream from flowing.”
