Smart homes, slimme apparaten, 'dode apps': Intel Security waarschuwt consumenten voor de beveiligingsrisico's van smartphones die constant verbonden zijn met internet en gekoppelde internet of things (Iot)-apparaten. Volgens de beveiliger weet zes op de tien Nederlanders niet zeker of zijn apparatuur besmet is met malware.In het McAfee Mobile Threath-rapport dat tijdens het Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona is gepresenteerd, wijst de beveiliger onder meer op vierduizend potentieel gevaarlijke apps die onlangs zijn verwijderd van Google Play. Volgens de rapporteurs zijn die ‘dode apps’ nog steeds geïnstalleerd op ruim 500.000 actieve toestellen.'De gemiddelde Nederlander besteedt nu 36 procent van zijn tijd thuis online. Maar hoewel we dus steeds meer een ‘connected lifestyle’ leven, heeft zes op de tien Nederlanders geen idee of weet niet helemaal zeker hoe ze kunnen controleren of hun internetapparaten zijn besmet met malware of dat een cybercrimineel toegang heeft gekregen tot hun apparaten', aldus de beveiligers in het rapport. Ook stelt het bedrijf dat fabrikanten hun verantwoordelijkheid moeten nemen en er voor moeten zorgen dat nieuwe producten standaard zijn voorzien van de juiste beveiligingsmaatregelen. Het kondigt een nieuwe samenwerking aan om netwerken beter te beveiligen. Het gaat om een samenwerking met de Britse maker van decoders en randapparatuur Humax. Dat bedrijf installeert standaard het McAfee Secure Platform op zijn Quantum T9 routers.McAfee keert terugIn september 2016 werd bekend dat chipgigant Intel een meerderheidsbelang van 51 procent van de Intel Security-tak verkocht aan investeringsmaatschappij TPG. In Intel's Securitytak zijn onder andere de oude activiteiten van McAfee ondergebracht. De overige 49 procent van de aandelen blijven in handen van Intel zelf. Naar verwachting wordt die overname in het tweede kwartaal van 2017 definitief afgerond. TPG meent dat McAfee als op zichzelf staand bedrijf beter in staat is om in te spelen op de snelle veranderingen in de securitymarkt. https://www.computable.nl/artikel/nieuws/security/5965589/250449/intel-waarschuwt-voor-risicos-internetapparaten.html
Het European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) heeft de ‘Threat Landscape 2016’ gepubliceerd. Het rapport geeft een overzicht van de belangrijkste cyberdreigingen in 2016. Dit jaar wordt gekenmerkt door talrijke ernstige cyberincidenten, gericht op geld en politieke impact. Bedrijven en overheden nemen steeds zwaardere maatregelen, maar een artikel van MIT Technology Review betwijfelt of dit voldoende is. Cybercrime wordt namelijk steeds nadrukkelijker een manier van oorlogsvoering. Het artikel pleit voor een Tweede Geneefse Conferentie over dit onderwerp. Een artikel van Computer Weekly gaat over de toenemende cyberaanvallen op clouddiensten. Een tweede artikel van deze website geeft aan dat het hierbij steeds meer zal gaan om de manipulatie van data. Daarvoor waarschuwt Intel Security. Een derde artikel van Computer Weekly noemt drie strategieën tegen aanvallen op de integriteit van data. Ook een artikel van GovTech bespreekt de toenemende cyberaanvallen op clouddiensten. Een tweede artikel van GovTech stelt dat voor de verdere ontwikkeling van het Internet of Things nieuwe technologieën voor cybersecurity nodig zijn. Dit alles is doorgedrongen tot de politiek. Minister Bert Koenders (BuZa) gaf tijdens de Internationale Veiligheidsconferentie in München het startsein voor de Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace (GCSC). Deze groep van 24 prominente onafhankelijke experts vanuit overheden, bedrijfsleven en de it-wereld gaat voorstellen formuleren voor gedragsnormen in cyberspace.Nieuwsbericht ENISAENISA Threat Landscape Report 2016 (pdf)Artikel MIT Technology ReviewArtikel Computer Weekly – 1Artikel Computer Weekly – 2Artikel Computer Weekly – 3Artikel GovTech – 1Artikel GovTech – 2Nieuwsbericht Nederlandse overheid 
In een open brief aan de politiek pleit een groep van 20 wetenschappers voor de oprichting van een ministerie van Innovatie en Technologie. Het is geen nieuw pleidooi, maar de brede wetenschappelijke ondersteuning maakt de oproep wel krachtiger dan voorheen. De schrijvers menen dat politieke visie en daadkracht vooral nodig zijn om robotisering in goede banen te leiden en er tegelijkertijd optimaal van te profiteren. De eerste geluiden uit Den Haag over het idee zijn afwijzend.

Three Key Organisations Support the Ambition of a National Cyber Test Center. On 14 February 2017, during the presentation of the results of the investigation for a National Cyber Testbed,  it was announced that KPN, TNO and the Municipality of The Hague support the initiative for the development of a National Cyber Testbed. They underlined the importance of a testbed and will be the first to invest in developing concrete applications. The ambition is that more parties will join. The test center will provide answers to various aspects of cyber threats, with the focus on 'Smart Cities' and ‘The Internet of Things' (IoT).Digital security is a global issueThe world is becoming increasingly dependent on digital solutions and everyone and everything is connected through the Internet. This offers great opportunities for governments, businesses and households in everyday life. The digital infrastructures in cities become 'smart'. Examples are smart thermostats, locks and traffic lights that are remotely controlled as well as real-time sharing medical data. Unfortunately, this digitalisation makes our society vulnerable for cybercrime. Lately we have seen many examples in the world, e.g. the massive and widespread cyber attacks in the United States on 21 October 2016.A National Cyber TestbedIncreasing cyber threats lead to major societal challenges. In some countries, including Japan, the US and Singapore, national security test centers have already been set up. Partly for this reason, the Municipality of The Hague, with financial support from the Rotterdam The Hague Metropolitan Area (MRDH), asked the national security cluster The Hague Security Delta (HSD) and TNO to explore the necessity for a National Cyber Testbed. The three parties, KPNTNO and the Municipality of The Hague, together with The Hague Security Delta, endorse the importance of a National Cyber Testbed. Their expressed commitment is of great importance and in line with the National ‘Cyberplan’ Investment programme and the Narrative of HSD. This also consistent with the International Cyber Strategy that Minister Bert Koenders of Foreign Affairs sent to Dutch parliament on Monday 12 February.Presentation of OutcomesDeputy major of The Hague, Ingrid van Engelshoven, on behalf of the Rotterdam The Hague Metropolitan Area (MRDH), received the report with the outcomes of the investigation on why a National Cyber Testbed would be necessary, what it should look like and how it should be organised and financed. Ingrid van Engelshoven: "We must ensure the security of our digital traffic. For citizens, businesses and governments major stakes are involved. If businesses, governments and research institutions cooperate, we see opportunities to develop a National Cyber Test Centre. This is the first step in this collaboration."KPNKPN sees clear added value in the National Cyber ​​Testbed for increasing the digital security of the Internet of Things. " Joost Farwerck, Member of the Board of KPN, said: "Given the impact on society and especially on smart cities and smart homes, KPN supports the National Cyber ​​Testbed to test smart Internet Of Things (IoT) devices. We will link our national Lora Internet-of-Things network to the National Cyber ​​Testbed in order to test and unlock smart solutions for its users."TNOAnnemarie Zielstra "As the Netherlands, we must invest in our knowledge position and in standardisation. It is crucial to invest in knowledge on our own vulnerabilities, the threat landscape and on specific applications to protect ourselves. The National Cyber ​​Testbed will thus take care of an important link within the cybersecurity ecosystem. This will only be successful when government, industry and research institutions join hands."HSD"In our country alone, in the next few years billions of euros will be required for the national digital security," said Richard Franken, Executive Director of HSD. With the start of a National Cyber ​​Testbed for the 'Internet of Things', an important direction can be provided for this spending. Read more on our project pageFor the complete report click here
