Re: NAS, SAN or DAS
It always comes back to encryption, doesn't it? If the data stored in the NAS were locked down with encryption, it would be worthless to the data thief. But unfortunately, encryption just isn't standard procedure today in many cases.

Re: sigh ..aka researchers are creating more harm than good
I partially agree but if there is vulnerability it would be exploited at one point, it would always be better knowing about it and taking preventive actions.

Re: NAS vulns
I would agree at the sane time if storage and router is vulnerable that simply means whole network is vulnerable. We may need to check and consider in a wider perspective.

NAS, SAN or DAS
If they found vulnerability in NAS one should assume the sabe security flows in SAN and DAS. No system is security-proof. Unless data is encrypted at rest I would consider the storage unsecure and start from them.

NAS vulns
Holcomb has found that NAS devices are more vulnerable than Soho routers--that should be a wakeup call since he found some 56 vulns in routers and expects to find even more in NASes. Not to mention they hold potentially valuable info.

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
