This presentation provides an update on the global security landscape since the last HEPiX meeting. It describes the main vectors of compromise in the academic community including lessons learnt, presents interesting recent attacks and security vulnerabilities while providing recommendations on how to best protect ourselves. It also covers security risks management in general, as well as the security aspects of the current hot topics in computing. By showing how the attacks we are facing are both sophisticated and profitable, the presentation concludes that the only mean to adopt an appropriate response is to build a tight international collaboration and to implement trusted information sharing mechanisms within the community. This talk is based on contributions and input from the CERN Computer Security Team.
