Alleged botnet operator arrested in Spain, faces multiple charges in the US.
This month the vendor has released 44 vulnerabilities, 13 of which are rated Critical.
Hello! I’m Sheila Jordan, Chief Information Officer at Symantec. Starting this month, you’ll find a series of blogs written by me and my IT leadership team on a variety of topics I believe you’ll find both compelling and useful.
In my three years at Symantec, I’ve traveled a truly amazing technology transformation journey. And, in my conversations with Symantec customers, I’ve discovered that many of you are quite interested in learning from our experience.
So, our new IT Showcase blog series is a forum to share some of our major initiatives, the challenges we’ve faced, how we overcame them, our lessons learned, and recommendations for how you can benefit from our travels—the obstacles that we had to overcome and the benefits received. Many of these initiatives are ultimately about business transformation. More than ever, CIOs are being asked to help a company transform their business through more efficient and effective use of technology. Additionally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that, by delivering a transformation and cleaning things up along the way by reducing legacy footprint, you can lead your company to a much more secure environment and one that is simply less complex.
Over the next few weeks and months, you’ll learn more about:
In an interview last month with The Wall Street Journal, I was asked about many of these transformation issues. Check out the final article: Symantec CIO Builds Off Company Acquisitions to Transform IT.
I hope this whets your appetite for our upcoming blog series. First topic: insourcing an entire IT organization from an outsourced model.
I look forward to hearing your comments and answering your questions!
機密文書 Vault 7 に記載されているツール類と既知のサイバー攻撃との関連を示す、初めての証拠が見つかりました。
Changes in Google’s newest mobile OS will impact the functionality of many Android ransomware threats.
We believe that doing good, is good business and this is extends to helping people of all backgrounds become part of the cybersecurity and high-tech industry. As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are creating a qualified and diverse talent pool to support the fast-growing cyber security industry, empowering women, people of color, veterans and underserved populations to succeed in their careers. This means working to ensure no group of individuals is left behind.
Estimates show that one percent of our global population have autism spectrum disorder and this extends across socioeconomic, cultural and regional borders. While extremely talented, this group of individuals are often under-represented by traditional hiring practices, however advocates for those with autism are looking to change this.
Recently announced by Symantec nonprofit partner Goodwill, the organization’s Expandability program will receive $50,000 in funding to expand access to its Autism Advantage Program, increasing accessibility to high-tech jobs for people on the autism spectrum. Expandability’s Autism Advantage program provides real-world training to candidates on the autism spectrum while also training hiring managers themselves to raise awareness of this often untapped, highly skilled talent pool.
“Symantec is sponsoring this innovative initiative as a way to recognize that equity comes in many forms. The Expandability program will provide crucial access to high-tech jobs for a group of tremendously skilled people within our community, who are often under-represented by traditional hiring practices.”
- Cecily Joseph, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility at Symantec.
In honor of World Autism Month, we are proud to announce this partnership that will create life-changing opportunities for future high-tech professionals. You can access the full announcement on Goodwill’s blog here.

As the political landscape evolves significantly within the US and other regions across the globe, policy and regulatory changes have people of all political backgrounds uncertain of what the future holds for some of our most critical societal issues such as climate change, community and social services, health care, diversity and more.
While corporations have historically played a role in providing societal benefits alongside the government, today we see a new trend developing, an expanding notion of responsibility amongst businesses. While corporate responsibility (CR) originally looked at the responsibility of a company to manage its own impacts on employees, the environment, and society, responsible leaders and companies are those that assess how their business and CR strategies can influence larger scale industry and global change.
In other words, the responsibility of business has moved from "me" to "we".
Current trends and activism worldwide suggest that by looking from the perspective of “we”, companies collectively can have an impact more effectively than if they go it alone. Additionally, consumers, investors, NGOs, and local communities are demanding responsible business and products, and “we” based CR strategies have business benefits. New research from Unilever shows a third of consumers are now choosing to buy from brands they believe are doing social or environmental good, while more than 12,000 Bloomberg terminal customers used ESG data in 2015, up from 1,500 in 2009.
The rise and reach of multi-stakeholder partnerships
While corporations have increased their partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) over the last twenty years (examples include WWF and Coca-Cola, Kimberly-Clark and Greenpeace), corporations are also partnering in a new way with peers and competitors, civil society, investors, and governments, in powerful multi-stakeholder partnerships to amplify their impacts.
As an example, Symantec is at the forefront of public advocacy for industry and corporate action on LGBTQ rights through their partnership with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Through this multi-stakeholder partnership, Symantec has advocated for marriage equality, the Equality Act, and stood up against North Carolina’s “bathroom bill” in 2016 alone.
Through Sympantec’s participation in Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy (BICEP), we joined 900 companies and investors to sign the Business Backs Low-Carbon USA statement, a strong message to President Trump and Members of the U.S. Congress reaffirming our support for the Paris Climate Agreement and the need to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy at home and around the world.
What the science is telling us
Moving from “me” to “we” in target setting has allowed leading businesses to expand their purview to help address critical global issues in a significant way. For example, Science Based Targets, a joint initiative of The UN Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI), WWF and CDP, is helping companies set GHG reduction targets in line with what science says is necessary to meet the long-term temperature goals adopted in the Paris Agreement. 215 leading companies, including General Mills, Kellogg, Proctor & Gamble, Sony, Symantec, Walmart and Dell, have now set ambitious science-based goals to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
According to Dell’s Principal Environmental Strategist, John Pflueger, regarding the company’s science-based GHG emissions reduction goal, “We had goals in the past, but they had been in silos, on different time frames, and not related to each other or informed by an underlying framework. We realised that while what happened within our walls was important, our footprint extended up and down our supply chain and we needed to address that.”
Similarly, in 2016, at Symantec we set a new goal to reduce GHG emissions by 30 percent by 2025, using a 2015 base year. The goal, reflecting months of current and projected energy use and emissions analysis, as well as ecological and peer context, was intentionally ambitious and aligned with climate science to take an aggressive step towards substantive change.
Progress for “me” is often rooted in progress for “we”.
In corporate responsibility, progress for “me” is often rooted in progress for “we”. Solving internal company challenges, such as workforce diversity, is often dependent on solving global, national and regional challenges first.
For example, technology companies are facing challenges to find qualified, skilled and diverse talent for their needs. At the same time 197.7 million people are unemployed globally, 40% of global employers site difficulties filling jobs, in part due to a lack of experience and technical skills. Additionally, there is an estimated 500,000 to 1 million unfilled cyber security jobs in the United States with this projected to reach 1.5 million by 2020.
To ensure a future pipeline of diverse, highly skilled talent, while addressing the cyber security and wider technology workforce gaps, Symantec’s Cyber Career Connection (SC3), was launched in 2014. The program provides underrepresented young adults and veterans with targeted education, training and certifications that position them to fill in-demand cyber security jobs and enter long-term careers. 300 students have been reached to date and 87% of SC3 graduates are employed in cyber security and IT jobs, or pursuing additional degrees.
Additionally, Cisco’s Networking Academy provides foundational and career-ready skills in networking and IT. Since its founding nearly 20 years ago, the program has helped more than 6.7 million students in 170 countries prepare for ICT and networking careers in a range of industries.
Responsible and responsive leaders and companies have moved their CR programs from “me” to “we”, reaching beyond their walls to join multi-stakeholder coalitions, establish company targets that account for global issues, while boosting the future strength of their own business. These leaders recognize the positive long-term business benefits of this approach. While the "we" still includes an inward assessment, together, companies will be a force for ensuring transgender equality, reducing climate change impacts, and fighting for the social and environmental causes their employees, customers, partners, and shareholders believe in.
While politics may shift, an increasing constant we can count on is that corporations recognize the value in working collectively to further their impacts for an equitable and sustainable future.

Google の最新モバイル OS で導入される新機能によって、多くの Android ランサムウェアが影響を受けそうです。
Number of blocked web attacks increases to highest level since July 2016 and Necurs botnet returns with new spam campaigns.
シマンテックが遮断した Web 攻撃の件数は、2016 年 7 月以来の最高水準を記録し、Necurs ボットネットが復活して新たなスパム活動を再開しました。
In connection with the statement posted to Symantec’s Blog on March 24, 2017, Symantec has been reaching out to its customers. The text of our most recent customer communication is below:
It's important that we keep the lines of communication open with you as we continue to deliberate possible changes to how we support your website security needs in response to Google's proposal. There is no doubt that these proposed changes would create a ripple effect across the entire industry. Following up on my previous Message To Our CA Customers, I wanted to provide you with an update on the progress we have made in response to Google's proposals.
In the weeks since Google shared its initial proposal, we have met with Google several times and have also embarked on an industry-wide listening tour to understand the impact that any changes may cause to our customers, partners, and the PKI ecosystem. Our goal is to find a combined path forward that will ensure business continuity for our customers and peace of mind for all browsers and other industry stakeholders.
These conversations have been both encouraging and instructive. And the input we've received from our industry stakeholders, partners, and most importantly, our customers, gives us confidence that we can come to the table with an alternative proposal that will serve the shared interests of the entire industry.
We have also heard consistently from customers like you that the transition to fully adopt Google's proposal within its suggested timeframe would cause significant business disruption and additional expense - especially within complex IT infrastructures. Mitigating these concerns is a top priority for us as we develop our counter proposal and provide responses to the salient questions the community has posted online. While we believe Google understands the burden their proposal creates, if they decide to move ahead with their original plan, I want to reassure you that Symantec will keep your websites, web servers or web applications operational across all browsers. Specifically, this may require Symantec to reissue your certificates, which we would do as needed, at no charge to you, to meet the fully expected validity period.
While we've made solid progress, we have plenty of work left ahead of us and I hope you will continue to consider us a trusted security partner as we address the challenges before us. I firmly believe that the only way to improve is by listening. If you have thoughts on shorter validity certificates, automation, or the value of extended validation (EV), please don't hesitate to reach out to me or voice your concerns anonymously by participating in a brief online survey.
Your input is invaluable and I thank you for your continued support.
