In this episode, the Radio Free HPC team looks at Network Security in light of the recent series of breaches at places like Sony, Home Depot, and Target
Our special guest this week is Security Expert Linda Millis, who has a day job as Senior VP of Sol-Pass.
Reports surrounding the Sony data breach are missing a simple, critical concept. Because user credentials were misused, the Sony breach is similar to the dozens of other recent breaches, from Target to Home Depot to JP Morgan, says Linda S. Millis, a security analyst with government and civilian credentials. “Lost, stolen or sold credentials caused each breach. Servers respond to authorized credentials – even if they’re lost, stolen or sold. The servers aren’t being hacked – the credentials are misappropriated,” Millis says.
