Wow, more breaches

https://www.csoonline.com/article/2130877/the-biggest-data-breaches-of-the-21st-century.html

Interesting article, it seems that there has been a history of email attacks that have taken place. One question I would ask is why are they still occurring and why are our defenses not working. From line listed ablvoe, it indicates a number of breaches from high-powered companies and government organizations. I do think our security process is broken, we need to start hiring real hackers to help identify the real-issues because what we are doing is not working.

101 Impressive Cybersecurity Statistics: 2020 Data & Market ...

My potential solutions ot the problem:

-> Utilize IPv6 AES256 ESP/AH VPN Site-to-Site and VPN to site as part of the solution (identified 99% of the attacks are from IPv4)

-> MFA/2FA - TOTP works but they have stated that we need to improve that process, we need to add a secured token that is associated with a device that we utilize on a regular basis

-> There needs to be reminders to help address some of these issues or the OS just does it itself with an aspect of self healing built into the system (Kubernetes does a great job of this).

-> Utilize SELinux/Apparmor (this is a solution that acts a sentinel to the OS)

-> Encrypt all traffic in flight and at rest, when it comes to DB traffic, the DB or OS should be intelligent enough to only send the data to the portal or application as opposed to outside the office (Zone 0), there should be some RBAC or Permissions in place that stop the user and notifies the Administrator (2 people should authorize/keys its use like they do with Nuclear facilities)  of what's happening (phone text and email)

-> Integrate Comodo as part of the Windows security solution (this blocks attacks)

-> Education is key but there needs to be test scenarios where people are tested at sporadic times

-> Block Countries from the firewall (PFSense, PaloAlto, Juniper)

-> Make the ISP accountable for bots and extraneous applications that are constantly pinging and checking outside connections, companies like Google, AWS and Microsoft need to be held accountable for sharing information that has been compromised by outside actors (give the public the choice instead of doing it automatically). ISP's can utilize Akamai to create a mesh over their existing network to block potential threats.

-> Add AI and centralize data-collection that is shared amongst firewall, Virus, IDS/IPS vendors, SIEM should be integrated into client/server environments (during the inception of the application, where they tie all of the systems together to create a form of DSNA - Data Security Network Architecture).
