The HacWare team attended the 2020 RSA conference in San Francisco in February. This year’s theme at RSAC was about the Human Element and understanding the success and challenges of human behavior and how it impacts information security.

As I was doing an interview for Hacware one of the questions was “What am I most proud of in terms of my business?” This was a very hard question to answer because it has been a year of incredible highs and incredible lows. So I decided to pick 10 moments from this year in honor of our new logo and brand that is based around the number 10 to let you take a ride into my 2019.
We just could not wait until next year to show you what we have been up to! We have worked hard to build a brand that values innovation, transparency, diversity, customer satisfaction and aggressively solving the impossible. We decided to update the logo because we felt like the logo did not match our vision and values.
We have also listened to feedback from you and realized that the logo was hard to read. Here is how the logo has changed over time to try to improve readability.
3 Loss Prevention measures retailers should implement over the holidays
The holiday season is upon us. As you get ready to open your stores for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and CyberMonday, you should know that your holiday staff may cause you to lose inventory, credibility, and cash. The hit NBC show Good Girls is a funny spin on a not-so-funny problem that is impacting the retail industry. The threat of shrinkage is at an all-time high and can cut into your profits big time. You can no longer think of shrinkage as a cost of doing business.
When I first set foot inside the Mandalay Bay Convention Center for Black Hat, my first thought was that it looked no different than any of the other tech conferences I had attended in the past. Turns out, I couldn’t have been more wrong. No, Black Hat (and Defcon, which immediately follows), is the kind of place where the activities of the day are hacking voting machines. This is where knowledgeable attendees avoid bringing their mobile devices, lest they get hacked and put on the wall of sheep, and where the average person is knowledgeable enough to fact-check and call…
Over 100 million Capital One accounts, including 140,000 Social Security numbers and over 80,000 linked bank accounts, all recently compromised in one of the largest security breaches since 2017’s Equifax breach. These days, news of a new catastrophic failure of security is all too common. For consumers, it’s an unfortunate consequence of living in the information age. But for business owners, it can be devastating, and the problem is only getting worse.
The FBI released their annual cybercrime report for 2018, and it revealed some eye-opening statistics. From 2017 to 2018, the costs of cybercrime almost doubled from $1.4 billion…
These phishing attacks will cost your company BIG time and BIG money
The new-age hackers are catching companies off guard with data-driven phishing attempts. Based on the recent data breaches, I believe hackers are targeting the Young, Beautiful and Broke employees. Their intent is to quickly identify the people to social engineer and use sophisticated social engineering tactics to get your employees to bypass security constraints like two-factor authentication or biometric authentication. Basically, hackers are preying on your people’s weaknesses and get access to whatever information they want.
After analyzing the data from 6 companies that have been hacked in…
I’m Ernesto Felan and this is my engineer takeover post for Hacware Inc. I have been working at Hacware for about a year learning a lot about Big Data and Machine Learning. Lately, I've been working on a product that utilizes machine learning at work and I wanted to see if I could use some Machine Learning to play a game better than I could.
I’ve always wanted to see if I could utilize a Deep Neural Network to play games, after being inspired by some other projects such as training a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) to play Mario Kart…
I am a software developer at Hacware, where I currently am working with a team of software engineers to build a machine-learning driven cybersecurity program.
Earlier this year, Hacware started Engineer Takeovers, where employees could share their unique perspectives of “Life at Hacware” by running the company’s social media. This allows us to provide value to the business and engineering communities through the lens of our work at Hacware. The first engineer takeover was our newest hire Trenton Goins, a recent CS graduate. Next was the mysterious “Hacker Fish”, a white-hat hacker in Hacware’s employ.
As the months passed I…
Hi everyone! My name is Trenton Goins, and I am very excited to be running Hacware’s Engineer Takeover this month! I am Hacware’s newest Software Engineer and am thrilled to be here. During my takeover, I will be showcasing what it’s like to be a new hire at Hacware, some perks of working here, and give you a detailed walkthrough on one of my first projects here at Hacware.
I have been working at Hacware for just a little over a month now. This is my first job out of college, and as such it can be a little daunting…
