Alerts are one of the most important information sources when it comes to cyber security. They notify and inform your IT team about ongoing cyber threats, security events and any other incident that might threaten your organization. In this article, we will focus on alert grouping and why it is important for the security of your organization.
A selection of this week’s more interesting vulnerability disclosures and cyber security news. Leaky bucket time once again. With so much effort by the providers to make it as hard as possible to accidentally expose data, then for the devs to try really hard to undo all of that because they are too lazy (or lack understanding) to do a proper job, is utterly mystifying.

With the growing complexity and velocity of security threats in dynamic, cloud-native environments, it’s more important than ever for security teams to have the same visibility into their infrastructure, network, and applications that developers and operations do. Conversely, as developers and operations become responsible for securing their services, they need their monitoring platform to help surface possible threats.

Exoprise customers, of course, have known about these Microsoft 365 outages well in advance of getting notifications from Microsoft.
Malicious actors are increasingly launching digital attacks against industrial organizations. Many of these campaigns have been successful, particularly those that have targeted energy utilities and manufacturing plants. In late spring 2019, for instance, aircraft parts manufacturer ASCO temporarily suspended operations worldwide after falling victim to a ransomware attack.
Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is an all-encompassing process. It is usually very complicated and often requires many people with many different skills – all trying to tackle an incident to determine what happened, when, why, how and ultimately who (to blame). There is, however, secret sauce today that can help solve many issues before a “full-scale” RCA process is initiated – and that is Root Cause Changes (RCC).
