Guidelines Concerning "State of the Art in IT Security"

The term "state of the art" is everywhere - companies are urged to adapt their IT security to it. However, the expression is not further defined or explained. For this reason, the Bundesverband IT-Sicherheit e.V. (The German Association for IT Security) (TeleTrusT) has set up a special working group to draw up guidelines on the state of the art. As a member of this task force, Detack GmbH was actively involved in creating these guidelines. The English version of them was published in cooperation with the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA). The original publication is found at: https://www.enisa.europa.eu/news/enisa-news/what-is-state-of-the-art-in-it-security

Launch of the EPAS Password Quality Enforcer

EPAS Enforcer is a password quality enforcement component, provided as a licensed feature of EPAS. EPAS Enforcer for A/D integrates as an LSA filter on the Windows Active Directory domain controllers and ensures that passwords meet defined security requirements when set or changed, in line with a centralized policy mandated by the risk category of the information they protect. The new password is tested against the EPAS evaluation criteria and is accepted or rejected, depending on the defined security requirements. This means that formerly permitted passwords like “Password123” or “Secret!” are not accepted any longer by the computer.
