One statement from our earlier book, which has been published 2007, was cited at IEEE Conference Journal. It is interesting and actual for many organizations at moment: “Security is a process of keeping necessary level of risk in acceptable boundaries. That means security is a continual process and not a final state. Organization or institution can’t consider itself “secured” after last security check. That process needs to be continual.”

There is serious vulnerability with A5/1 encryption scheme used in GSM networks. It can lead to interception of GSM calls. This vulnerability has been presented by Karsten Nohl and Chris Paget at the 26th Chaos Communication Congress (26C3).
An independent test and evaluation of 15 different network intrusion-protection system products from seven vendors showed none were fully effective in warding off attacks against Microsoft, Adobe and other programs. NSS Labs, which conducted the test without vendor sponsorship of any kind, also evaluated the 15 network IPS offerings for their capability in responding to “evasions,” attacks delivered in an obfuscated and stealthy manner in order to hide. In that arena, Juniper Networks and TippingPoint didn’t perform particularly well. Juniper IPS scored lowest at only 17% effectiveness. In that arena, the McAfee and IBM IPS held up particularly well.
