Bank Info Security: Lessons from ATM fraud ring arrests
Director of Product Management Jesse McKenna shares best practices to prevent ATM fraud: "A significant portion of ATMs continue to run legacy operating systems and aren't kept up to date as new attacks and new strains of malware are discovered. Just as the best practice for home computer owners is to keep their PCs up to date with all current security patches, the same is true for banks and ATMs."
New York Times: Straight Talk on Start-Ups.
Vice President of People Operations Julia Tran shares her start-up philosophy and motivation: “In Silicon Valley, you have to speak with authority and find ways to make people know that you’re bright and capable. And you have to move fast. With every dollar you bring in from investors, you’re working on borrowed time…Start-ups force you to think big picture but also drop down and figure out how to do things with very little. I pick up trash when I see it, and I go to board meetings. I feel ownership in this company — that what I do matters.”
Chief Cybersecurity Strategist Mark Weatherford explains the silver lining of increasing data breaches when it comes to organizations getting serious about cyber insurance: "[It’s] a wonderful thing for us in the security because, because now it's going to force companies to say 'If we want affordable cyber insurance, we're going have to invest in security, and we're going to have to be prepared to act fairly quickly when an event like Heartbleed happens."
