    The smart way to a smarter city: Three critical considerations

    • The concept of smart buildings is generating lots of excitement, but what does the transformation to intelligent cities look like at ground level for those in charge of making it happen? This post is the first in a series of three illustrating how Internet of Things technology can change urban areas for the better—for those who run them and those who live in them.

    Static Data Masking for Azure SQL Database and SQL Server

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/static-data-masking-preview/

  • Static Data Masking is designed to help organizations create a sanitized copy of their databases where all sensitive information has been altered in a way that makes the copy sharable with non-production users. Static Data Masking can be used for:

    • Development and testing
    • Analytics and business reporting
    • Troubleshooting
    • Sharing the database with a consultant, a research team, or any third-party
  •  Static Data Masking facilitates compliance with security requirements such as the separation between production and dev/test environments. For organizations subject to GDPR, the feature is a convenient tool to remove all personal information while preserving the structure of the database for further processing.

Leverage Azure Security Center to detect when compromised Linux machines attack

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/leverage-azure-security-center-to-detect-when-compromised-linux-machines-attack/

When an attacker compromises a machine, they typically have a goal in mind. Some attackers are looking for information residing on the victim’s machine or are looking for access to other machines on the victim’s network. Other times, attackers have plans to use the processing power of the machine itself or even use the machine as a launch point for other attacks. While on Linux virtual machines (VM) in Microsoft Azure we most commonly see attackers installing and running cryptocurrency mining software. This blog post will focus on the latter when an attacker wants to use the compromised machine as a launch point for other attacks.
