      ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard that provides the basis for effective management of confidential and sensitive information, and for the application of information security controls.

      It allows organizations to demonstrate excellence and prove best practice in Information Security management. The standard enables organizations to achieve conformance to an information security management system which requires them to continually improve their control of confidential and sensitive information.

      Released in 2005, the ISO/IEC 27001 has rapidly become the most widely recognized international standard specifically aimed at Information Security management. The adoption of an information security management system is a strategic decision allowing the coordination of all operational security controls across all organization's electronic and physical information resources.

      The standard can be aligned with other management systems, such as the quality standard: ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 20000 for IT services management.

      ISO/IEC 27001 provides a model for establishing, implementing, operating, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system with the design and implementation influenced by the organization's needs, objectives, information assets, security requirements, its process and other organizational characteristics.

      Paladion's Vulnerable Andriod application named "InsecureBank" is made for security enthusiasts and developers to learn the android insecurities by testing this vulnerable application. The server component is written in python. Some key vulnerabilities that can be learnt using this application are:

      Information Sniffing due to Unencrypted Transport medium
      Sensitive information disclosure via Property Files
      Sensitive information disclosure via SD card storage
      Sensitive information disclosure via SQLite DB
      Sensitive information disclosure via Device and Application Logs

      In addition, Paladion's Mobile Security Team has developed an automation script which is helpful in quick static analysis of Android Vulnerabilities. The script is a batch file, which prompts the user to provide the path of the android application code to be analysed. The script has detection parameters pre-configured in it which run over the android application code. The result is a list of text files - one each for different vulnerability. These text files are the primary source of vulnerability identification. Sometimes it may not directly flag off vulnerability but may act as the pointer from where to start with. This script is very useful in case of bigger applications.

      List of key Checks that that the Script would be testing for:

      Code to check for presence of HTML Sensitive Information
      Code to check for insecure usage of SharedPreferences
      Code to check for possible TapJacking attack
      Code to check usage of external storage card for storing information
      Code to check for possible scripting javscript injection

  • PALADION HELPED QIB TO ACHIEVE PCI DSS CERTIFICATION

      QATAR, MARCH 28, 2012, Doha, Bangalore based Paladion Networks, the leading Information Risk Management provider in the region, successfully helped Qatar Islamic Bank to achieve PCI DSS certification. QIB has been recently awarded with PCI DSS standards for its entire range of payment card affiliated services across all its branches and channels (ATM, POS, Internet banking, SMS banking etc). Paladion also assessed QIB core centres and offices where these services were being run from.

      PCI DSS compliance is required by all merchants and service providers that store, process, or transmit cardholder data and applies to all payment channels, including retail, mail/telephone orders, and ecommerce. With this certification, QIB has become the second bank in Qatar to achieve this milestone which clearly distinguishes it from competitors.

      To ensure that its customers receive secured services, QIB has invested ample time and resources and assured a smooth implementation process. Paladion has assisted QIB right from the beginning till the certification was achieved and had taken end-to-end ownership to make QIB PCI DSS compliant.

      However, the road to this success was not easy since QIB has a wide range of services and multiple operating locations. Paladion spent adequate time and effort towards ensuring a comprehensive assessment of each one of them as QIB has invested in a wide range of technologies to provide these services. As part of the assessment, each technology had to be assessed for compliance to PCI DSS since the PCI DSS standard is very comprehensive and covers a wide range of processes, people and technologies. It takes a lot of effort and investments for an entity to comply.

      With its years of experience and expertise and pool of Qualified Security Assessors (QSA), Paladion worked closely with QIB to ensure practical and cost effective solution. "This is possible only because of the years of expertise of providing Information Security related services and a well qualifies work force that we have," said Rajat Mohanty, CEO, Paladion Networks.

There have been more than 20,000 attempted cyber attacks in 2010 in Oman, and the figures have already crossed 2,000 in the first quarter of 2011.

Prepared through expert evaluation & region specific experience in global phishing trends, Paladion SOC team has given a snapshot of the trends seen from 2010 till date in the Sultanate of Oman as well as entire Middle East.

      The data shows, for the year 2010, although some banks in ME experienced phishing attacks, banks in Oman were not targetted. Whereas, the picture for 2011 is exact shows banks in Oman have experienced a big jump in attacks [from 5 for the whole year of 2010 to 35 in less than 5 months]. NBO has been targetted in most of these attacks. The bank's counterparts in the country have not been targetted similarly.

  • FRAUD PROOFING YOUR BANKING OPERATION

      Bengaluru, Jan 20, 2011 - Despite continuing efforts and investments by banks to mitigate financial risks, fraud is evidently a growing problem. The recent fraud incident at a leading MNC bank's branch, reportedly committed by a relationship manager confirms that it's time we stop waiting for a whistle-blower to raise the alarm and instead, go for an automated process to detect frauds instantly..

      While every related stakeholders are busy in their own ways to find out the lapses in the systems and procedures, the poor customers only concern is, "How safe is to keep my money in the Bank…as this can happen in any Bank?" Unfortunately, nobody seems to be discussing on the imperative need for the Banks to have a holistic Fraud Risk Management solution in place.

      Keeping pace with the need of the Industry, Paladion Networks, the largest pure-play Information Security Company in Asia pacific has introduced a more comprehensive and 'organization-wide' version of "Banking Fraud Risk Management" and is offering both professional services and solution deployment in this space. In the solution space Paladion has partnered with many analyst recommended global solution providers in financial crime, Risk and Compliance.

      Before discussing about the typical functionalities that a holistic fraud risk management system should have, it is important to know about the expectations of the customer. A customer will always expect that the Bank should stop or challenge online transactions which have fraudulent patterns and proactively inform them about any anomaly in their transaction behaviors.

      It is also important to inform them about current threats and safety measures that need to be taken by the customers and in case a fraud happens, help them quickly find out the culprit. The HNI customer in any Bank would definitely appreciate if they are informed regularly about the anomaly in their transaction profile.

      An integrated system in a Bank to detect anomalies in transaction behavior profile of an employee would definitely help in preventing perpetration of in-house frauds. In case a fraud happens, such systems should also correlate the employee's action with the fraud and find out the nexus.

      Essentially, a holistic Fraud Risk Management solution take s care of fraud risks within the enterprise rather than in a channel and must have the following important functionalities.

      The capability to maintain a single profile of the user across all channels and detect fraud emanating from any channel
      Ability to correlate different actions which can lead to a fraud scenarios and then alert.
      The capability of multidimensional profiling i.e. profiling any entity viz customer, POS, ATM, Branch, Dealer, Relationship Manager, Loans, treasuries etc on the basis of certain statistical parameters
      The ability to de risk the transaction before it is committed. This tantamount to real/near real time detection and prevention
      A hybrid approach that includes rule, anomaly detection and predictive modeling for fraud detection
      The ability to integrate with existing authentication systems, thus enabling Risk based authentication
      Modular Implementation
      Robust work flow and Case Management system for Investigation and Enterprise view
      Ease of integration with the Core Banking Application
      Efficient response time (say 10 ms)
