A steady rise in the ranks
Last Saturday, the SECUINFRA Eight Rüdersdorf traveled to Werder (Havel) for the second day of the German Rowing League 2018, which was once again expected to have its ups and down. Nonetheless, there was reason to celebrate in the end.
Not everything went as planned for the SECUINFRA Eight Rüdersdorf team. And yet the day had started out so well. During the last training session at 8 am, everything was still going smoothly. Conditions on the Havel were prime, and the high temperatures that had been forecast had not yet arrived. Two hours later at the start of the time trials, things had taken a dramatic turn: the eight Pirna-based colleagues rowing for the Rüdersdorf team did not stand a chance against the Bremen Eight. To make things worse, the team’s rowing time was just barely enough to land the 14th spot in the overall rankings. Tim Bartels explained the debacle: “The team couldn’t seem to get it together during the first race.” Not exactly a good start on competition day. Heads were hanging low on the Rüdersdorf team, but the situation was looking up again soon enough.read more

According to the most recent information, attackers access into the high security IT Network of the German government had gone unnoticed for several months. The attackers gained access to confidential documents in what had previously been considered a highly secured environment. The investigation is currently ongoing.
Why did it take so long to discover the breach? Attackers leave clues behind regardless of what they do. With common security measures such as antivirus and intrusion protection systems (IPS), these clues are often not recognizable. In this case tools are needed that are not just signature-based, but rather target types of activities such as unusual usage of operating system tools or clues in the registry.read more
