I am pleased to announce I will be speaking at the Transact Secure MENA, here at Dubai, My session will be about the latest online attacks which effects Banking customers, and yes, of course I will also present how “you” can mitigate this kind of attacks.

The Middle East and North Africa is a region with a high level of attention on anti-money laundering and counter-fraud activities, with regulatory focus aimed increasingly at KYC, authentication and PEP identification.

The recent uprisings in North Africa and parts of the Middle East dubbed ‘the Arab spring’ have resulted in heightened attention paid to the actions of political groups and persons with the affected countries. This has also led to an increased focus on sanctioned individuals due to their association with the respective regimes.

Predictions state that by 2020, the volume of payments in the MENA region will have reached $192.3bn and equate to 20% of the total world volume

"Shoud we Upgrade or not" article took lots of attention last week, I had many e-mails, asking how they can get the FREE Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) and install it. This article is all about PSI :

 

The Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) is a free computer security solution that identifies vulnerabilities in non-Microsoft (third-party) programs which can leave your PC open to attacks.

Simply put, it scans software on your system and identifies programs in need of security updates to safeguard your PC against cybercriminals. It then supplies your computer with the necessary software security updates to keep it safe. The Secunia PSI even automates the updates for your insecure programs, making it a lot easier for you to maintain a secure PC.

Using a scanner like Secunia PSI 3.0 is complementary to antivirus software, and as a free computer security program, is essential for every home computer. It constantly monitors your system for insecure software installations, notifies you when an insecure application is installed, and even provides you with detailed instructions for updating the application when available.

To upgrade or not!

As a Security Professional I do get “should we upgrade from a non-supported Operating System (O/S) or not” question(s) a lot. To be more specific the questions are

-Should we upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 / 8.1, or

- Do we really need to upgrade from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2?

Yes, I know Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 “was” great, productive and many of you are very eXPerienced on how to use and manage it. And yes, I do also know that “it’s still working as new” and it does do what you need mostly based on old era.

And after all, not supported O/S does not mean your XP’s and 2003’s will stop working but it does mean there will be no patch for your OS vulnerabilities.

As a Windows Expert MVP and Security advisor who is travelling internationally a lot, I always get the same question asked. “What is a trusted operating system "(OS)? The easy answer is An OS which has been tested by Common Criteria labs’ based to the ISO /IEC 15408 criteria and is and passed the test to call certified to be a Secure OS. As soon as the OS passes the test it will receive the "Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) certificate. Based on this criteria I can call Windows 8 or 7 is a trusted OS's :)  But what will be tested?
