Top 7 IoT Gadgets for Christmas

The new buzzword on many people’s lips as we head into the Christmas period is the Internet of Things or IoT. Experts are predicting that the influence exerted by IoT will fundamentally transform most aspects of our lives. So just what is this all about? The IoT is merely a network of inter-connected devices and machines that can collect and share data with each another via the internet. This is not small news, for it is estimated that from the start of 2015 up to 2020, in excess £4.5 trillion (1) will have been invested in IoT solutions. Further estimates are suggesting that a total of 34 billion IoT devices will be connected, by then. Many of these devices are used in business, of course, though many others will enter the retail consumer markets. The way we eat, shop and sleep will be affected by technology that is being described as potentially bigger than the industrial revolution. Here are 7 IoT devices that could change our everyday lives or are nice Christmas presents.

What is Penetration Testing?

What is Penetration Testing?

A penetration test, or pen test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, service and application flaws, improper configurations, or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies. The process typically identifies the target systems and a particular goal—then reviews available information and undertakes various means to attain the goal. A penetration test target may be a white box (which provides background and system information) or black box (which provides only basic or no information except the company name). A penetration test can help determine whether a system is vulnerable to attack, if the defenses were sufficient, and which defenses (if any) the test defeated. Security issues that the penetration test uncovers should be reported to the system owner. Penetration test reports may also assess potential impacts to the organization and suggest countermeasures to reduce risk. The goals of a penetration test varies depending on the type of approved activity for any given engagement with the primary goal focused on finding vulnerabilities that could be exploited by a nefarious actor, and informing the client of those vulnerabilities along with recommended mitigation strategies. Penetration tests are a component of a full security audit. For example, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard requires penetration testing on a regular schedule, and after system changes.   Vinova is providing affordable and world-class mobile & web app penetration testing service for Singapore Enterprises and SMEs.

Mobile App Security

Mobile App Security

The security of mobile applications is a serious and growing concern for users and mobile application market places (Apple’s App Store, Google Play, BlackBerry® World™, Windows Phone Store), where users are the target and the market places enable the delivery of malware. We have reviewed the recent history of the mobile space, looking at the vectors available to hackers and malware producers. We’ll highlight some facts and figures that should cause many to rethink the device that they give all their information to, and carry everywhere with them. Mobile App Security When an application is submitted for inclusion on any of the main supplier stores it is scanned for malware and its usage permissions are collated and presented to the user. They range from “network level access” which basically “should” mean the application requires connection to the internet. However more and more applications seem to include the permission “collects location information” or “collects personal information such as contacts”. For many applications this can be a boon, applications such as Facebook will use this to tag where a photo is taken and suggest other users of Facebook to you, based on their email address or mobile number contained in your contacts list. The flip side of this is the growing number of applications that harvest the information for no application based reason and seemingly just because they can. This can also affect application updates. Permissions changes are again highlighted to the user but often in high level/technical language and without the user comprehending the purpose or usage of that collected data. The lesson for users is, if they choose to...
