The Hacker News
Computer hacking is truly an epidemic. It's not enough to apply the latest patches to your servers and workstations or otherwise defend yourself reactively. If you're in charge of your network's security, you must understand how hackers minds work and what tools they're using for their attacks.

Also one of the best ways to protect yourself is to think like a hacker. Evil hackers aren't just a threat to national security. They're a threat to your privacy and even your livelihood. Your personal information? Nothing more than a commodity in their billion-dollar black-market enterprise.

There's no product that can prevent hackers from plastering passwords and usernames on the Web. But some white hat hackers are not only chasing these cybercriminals but also thwarting the attacks before they can be launched.

Vulnerabilities appear in your environment every day. For example, everyone wants to use their tablet or smart phone to conduct business. And it makes sense: phones are portable, powerful, connected BUT AS WELL AS MOST VULNERABLE. You are exposed to new threats every day.

Helping your organization stay ahead does take effort. But remember, it "takes one to know one" You need to think like the bad guys. What are the assets that are valuable? How would you go after them? Learning about common attack methods and commonly attacked assets makes you realize that hackers know that the way to valuable data is through the people that handle the data.
