Two new and related security vulnerabilities called “Spectre” and “Meltdown” are significant because they affect computing platforms with Intel, AMD, or ARM central processing units (CPU’s). This includes Mac, Windows, Linux, Android and other platforms. These vulnerabilities take advantage of the ability to extract information from instructions that have been executed on a CPU using the CPU cache as a side-channel.
Cybersecurity should be a priority for any organization. With a new cyberattack launched every 39 seconds, there is little hope for any organization to fly under the radar, no matter how small it is.
Today, a disconnect exists between management and IT departments that exacerbate the multi-billion dollar losses and cybersecurity expenses in which businesses incur every year. This misalignment stems from a traditional siloed approach to cybersecurity: Management orchestrates the daily operations of the company while the security team focuses on cyberthreats. This results in what RSA calls a "gap of grief," which impairs an organization's ability to mitigate and defend from threats. RSA outlines several key steps to bridge this gap by transforming a disconnected approach into a business-driven security™ strategy.
