Ransomware6863.jpg

Cybersecurity researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new form of ransomware that can take over control of a simulated water treatment plant. After gaining access, they were able to command programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to shut valves, increase the amount of chlorine added to water, and display false readings.

Novel Research Demonstrates Improvements in Board-Level IT Governance in Firms That Experience Cyber Attacks

ITSecurity-702x336.png

New research from Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University finds that when companies experience operational IT failures, such as a data breach, they make changes to their boards of directors in order to improve oversight and monitoring of IT resource utilization. The study also observes that the board-changes are proportional to the magnitude of drop in stock prices that companies often experience upon suffering an IT failure.
