RSA Breach: An Attack That Used a Social Media Booby Trap?

first_imgalex williams RSA had a major breach this week. Attackers stole information for 40 million two-factor authentication accounts.That’s a huge breach. And the ones affected most may be IT administrators, who in turn, run the security for countless enterprise and cloud-based services in the public and private sector. The ramifications are considerable. This attack means that hundreds if not millions of people could be affected if IT administrator accounts now get hacked.RSA is the security division of EMC Corporation. RSA is revealing little about the attack but the news does shine light on what has to be the greatest security hole the world has ever seen.And that’s social media. People are very susceptible to these types of attacks when using services that allow them to share information.Noted security blogger Scott Crawford summarized what RSA has revealed in its public disclosures and SEC filings. The attackers exploited, SecurID, which IT administrators and millions of others use as it requires two authentications of a person’s identification. You may have seen it in the form of a pocket-sized token that generates a random number used to identify the individual. The exploited data resources from RSA may be able to give attackers more information that in turn would lower the bar for exploits against the two-factor technique. Crawford:As with virtually any technology, it’s not as if two-factor or one-time password authentication techniques don’t already have their weaknesses – but gaining access to more detailed information about SecurID functionality could at a minimum “lower the bar” for exploits against the technique. How much lower, if at all, cannot be said at this point, unless and until more information about the specifics of what was exposed in the attack become available. Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Related Posts 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#enterprise#networking IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Now, how did this happen at RSA? Crawford write that It looks like someone may have been fooled by a social media trap.In the first bullet of the SecurCare advisory it issued yesterday, RSA recommends that “customers increase their focus on security for social media applications and the use of those applications and websites by anyone with access to their critical networks.” This is provocative in suggesting that a social media exploit may have played a role in this incident. While that cannot be said definitively until further information is made available, it clearly advises organizations to be more aware of the risks of social media. Individuals often reveal a great deal of personal information through social outlets. Social media can also be used to expose individuals to threats through links and “socially” delivered software such as games and apps. This incident may well turn up the heat on these concerns, and raise awareness of risks and countermeasures accordingly.The scope of this attack is shrouded in the abstractions about online security. We simply do not take enough caution in how we treat the security threat. We use password systems that are easily exploited. We do not train people in the dangers to watch out for in social media environments.I see this as due to the constant denial that the enterprise has about social media. It has been discounted for years as trivial. The Internet is not trivial. It is a cubed, multi-dimensional space. It consists of billions of experiences. It is everywhere. But, still, it does get discounted when it comes to how the organization functions. “Who cares what you are having for lunch?” is the type of exclamation that still surfaces when social media is discussed. That infers it is not taken seriously, which is a big problem. The state of our security environments deserve better.Enterprise security experts should be working much more closely in places where the social immersion is exponentially deeper than mainstream society. That will build relationships that can help the major security providers lean how to be better prepared for these types of exploits.Until then, we face the spectre of just another rapid series of news items about worsening attack to our most important information resources.This is the kind of attack that should be a sounding cry. Unfortunately, the more probable result is attacks to more institutions that are looking away more than focusing on the problem.last_img read more

5 Underrated Ways to Promote YouTube Videos

first_imgCheck out this list of highly underrated ways to promote YouTube videos. Apply them properly and you just might get more eyes on your videos and channel!Uploading a video to YouTube is just the beginning. The real fun comes when you decide to find ways to get your video in front of a larger audience. After you’ve applied basic and advanced techniques in boosting your video’s ranking in search, try out these valuable (and often underrated) tips to enhance the reach of your YouTube videos.1) Build YouTube Playlists Around Your VideosImage from Bloomus/ShutterstockPlaylists play an extremely important role in distributing your video content on YouTube. Frankly speaking, playlists need to be in the center of your channel strategy. Why so? Well, playlists make it significantly easy for viewers to watch multiple videos with no effort at all. Since you hook viewers up for several videos in your playlist, the overall watch time is increased dramatically.To create successful playlists, be very strategic. You don’t need to stuff all your videos in one single playlist. Group videos by topic so that viewers want to watch the videos in one shot. Don’t be too self-centered while creating playlists. Create playlists using your own videos and other videos if they fit the topic.You may want to order your own videos to be at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of your playlist. Playlists need to be optimized with relevant descriptions so that viewers can find them in search. The optimization techniques described in an earlier post can come in handy here too. Publish playlists within your YouTube channel. In this way, the playlists will easily reach your subscribers.2) Collaborate With Other Creators on YouTubeImage from Shameless MayaCollaborating with other video creators (especially channels catering to audiences similar to yours) is a proven method to get your channel beyond its regular reach. You’ll likely find that video creators are open to testing new content and giving new stuff to their viewers.So, the task is to find channels which work for your audience and reach out to them. What to do next? Guest starring is one of the most popular techniques. Some other ways that work include: joint hangouts, exchange of video uploads, and links (both in-video and in text descriptions).One caveat to bear in mind — After the above cross-promotional events take place, make sure you continue “feeding” your new subscribers with videos on a regular basis. That content will determine if your new followers want to stick around. 3) Promote Your Videos on Friendly BlogsImage from ShutterstockIn the same vein as reaching out to fellow YouTubers, create a circle of bloggers who can help drive video views by embedding your videos into their posts. By the way… this one is real tough! Bloggers treasure the relationship they’ve cultivated with their readers and will be cautious about any content coming their way.To start off, track down the sites that embed your videos. How to track them down? Set Google Alerts for your channel name, your video titles, and specific keywords you use in the video descriptions. Contact bloggers with the videos most relevant to their preferred writing subjects. Why not invite bloggers to check your playlists out too?4) Insert Your Videos in Email UpdatesPromoting your content by email does work, even though there are rumors email is dead. Remember that your subscribers provided their emails voluntarily! You’ve already won their hearts. So give them more news and updates.If you have a list of email subscribers, send them a message every time you upload a new video. If you send regular newsletters, mention your videos in these emails. Adding a description and an attractive screenshot or thumbnail in the email is usually enough to start getting clicks and, eventually, video views.5) Use Old Public Relation Promotional MethodsImage from VidConHow do PR companies still exist in this digital era? Well, simply put, it’s because good old-fashioned PR works. A well-distributed press release containing your video can land you a lot of traffic and views. Talking in public or on the phone and following up with a summary (with your video in it!) is also part of the PR game. Presentations at various industry events also fall into this category.Bonus TipsImage from Austin Digital GroupPromoting your YouTube videos may seem an overwhelming task. But the more you promote your videos with good results, the more you will want to continue. Here are a couple of bonus tips:Improve your video production.Get a better camera, improve your sound, add some quality royalty free background music.Create expectations and satisfy them.Regular production and scheduled publishing – these are two keys to keep your audience engaged. You create an expectation. Make sure you live up to it.Share on social.YouTube is a massive social platform by itself. But you want to get your videos beyond it through sharing on other social media outlets. And Facebook is not your limit. Consider Twitter, Reddit, StumbleUpon, and LinkedIn.The very last bonus tip.If you are serious about promoting your videos on YouTube, download the YouTube Creator Playbook and read it through.You could also check these articles about promoting videos on YouTube:How to Properly Export Video for YouTubeThe 5 New YouTube Features Every Filmmaker Needs to Know5 Quick Tips to Boost Your Video’s YouTube RankGot any more cool tips about promoting videos on YouTube?
