CMS Supply Chain Security

Ms. Berlin’s course - recap of 2nd session

Brakeing Down IR -date?

Any malware of note?

Upgrade your Office! Just double-clicked, used rtf and document never opened, just the script ran.

Supply chain isn’t just Hardware… software stacks abound and not followed

Wordpress plugins, CMS plugins/themes… not monitored, weakly secure

Keeping track is as important as asset management

Do you know what your CMS is running, plugin wise?

And if plugins aren’t bad enough, you have PHP to deal with


Buy plugins - you get what you pay for

Check what support you get (always a good idea)

Require reviews for new plugins, and old ones, esp if they haven’t updated in a while

Are they still maintained? (abandonware bad)

New owners? (many plugins and apps get bought and then start changing permissions, or worse, serving malware)
