Security

IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

While file sharing proliferates in the enterprise environment, the unsecure and unsanctioned deployment of file sharing technologies poses significant risk to organizations. Extensive new research conducted by Ponemon Institute in North America and Europe, sponsored by Intralinks, reveals that individuals are behaving badly, organizations are addressing the challenges inadequately, and IT professionals feel a loss of control. Here is just a sample of the results: Half of all respondents lack the confidence to deal with risky file sharing practices 62% of respondents accidently sent files to unauthorized individuals outside the organization 70% of organizations do not conduct regular audits to determine if file sharing activities are in compliance with regulations Download this research report now to find out: The extent of the risk associated with unsecure file sharing The individual behaviors driving and organizational responses to information lossThe key considerations for secur

The proliferation of file sync and share (FSS) products and other cloud services designed for consumers, along with mobile devices, leads to improper sharing of corporate data. Information that leaves your firewalls can live forever, and without adequate protection, can end up in the wrong hands. So what’s the solution? Protect your information with next-generation information rights management (IRM) technology. You can email, copy, upload or share any IRM-secured document — and the protection travels with it. Key topics include: The threat posed by Dropbox and other consumer-grade FSS providers The need for lifetime control of information and content The ability to perform audits, and locate files, anywhere, and who accessed them How next generation IRM technology is available to add a new layer of security to every file Information technology professionals interested in using IRM for secure collaboration don’t want to miss this important report.

White Paper Published By: Kaspersky Lab     Published Date: Oct 30, 2014
Businesses today are faced with the almost insurmountable task of complying with a confusing array of laws and regulations relating to data privacy and security. These can come from a variety of sources: local, state, national, and, even, international law makers. This is not just a problem for big businesses. Even a small business with a localised geographic presence may be subject to laws from other states and, possibly, other nations by virtue of having a presence on the internet. In many instances, these laws and regulations are vague and ambiguous, with little specific guidance as to compliance. Worse yet, the laws of different jurisdictions may be, and frequently are, conflicting. One state or country may require security measures that are entirely different from those of another state or country. Reconciling all of these legal obligations can be, at best, a full time job and, at worst, the subject of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.

While vulnerability assessments are essential, considering vulnerability data in a vacuum greatly limits your ability to prioritize your action plan in an effective way. Without the context of which vulnerabilities are the most severe, which are actively being targeted, which are on critical assets, etc, you may waste time checking things off the list without actually improving security. Join us for this session to learn how to integrate threat intelligence into your vulnerability management strategy.

Event logs provide valuable information to troubleshoot operational errors, and investigate potential security exposures. They are literally the bread crumbs of the IT world. As a result, a commonly-used approach is to collect logs from everything connected to the network "just in case" without thinking about what data is actually useful. But, as you're likely aware, the "collect everything" approach can actually make threat detection and incident response more difficult as you wade through massive amounts of irrelevant data. Join us for this session to learn practical strategies for defining what you actually need to collect (and why) to help you improve threat detection and incident response, and satisfy compliance requirements.
