Cyber Security: For Defenders, It's About Time

Published By: McAfee EMEA     Published Date: Nov 15, 2017
Time has become a critical capability in being able to extract the business value enterprises want from their data and computing infrastructure, as well as to protect the business value that has already been created. In multiple areas of cyber security, time is currently working in favor of the attackers — and time is the strategic advantage that the defenders need to regain. In this report, Aberdeen Group provides four illustrative examples of how recapturing an advantage of time can help defenders to reduce their risk, in the fundamental categories of data protection, threat detection and incident response, data center / cloud security, and endpoint security.

Vulnerability Management Evolution: From Tactical Scanner to Strategic Platform

Published By: Qualys     Published Date: Nov 05, 2013

This report from Securosis outlines how yesterday's vulnerability scanners are evolving to meet this need, emerging as a much more strategic component of an organization's control set than in the past. Learn how vulnerability scanners are evolving to provide real value beyond vulnerability reports for auditors - emerging as a strategic component helping organizations effectively lower risks.

Protecting your company’s most critical information. Not all data is created equal

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jul 17, 2018
Ensuring your data is compliant can be a fairly straightforward task. Your IT team works their way through the checklist, and stays out of trouble with lawyers and regulatory agencies. There’s value to that. But true data protection is more than regulatory compliance. In fact, even if you’re compliant, your organization could still be at risk unless you strategically identify and protect your most valuable data. Traditionally, you’ve been presented with IT security metrics—sometimes reassuring, other times alarming. But simply reviewing IT security metrics is not meaningful in and of itself. As an executive, you don’t evaluate issues in siloes. Instead, you excel at assessing issues in the broader context of your organizational operations. In other words, technical security data and metrics lack value unless viewed through the lens of business risk. When you’re presented with IT security metrics, your question is: What does this mean for my business? And ultimately, what data should I

Compliance Analyst Report

Published By: Microsoft Office 365     Published Date: Sep 26, 2017

But to realize the potential of this business collaboration platform, Microsoft and its partners have to convince business and IT leaders that it offers levels of security, privacy, and compliance that are equal to or higher than those of their existing on-premise solutions. Even though a high percentage of enterprises are adopting cloud storage and compute within their businesses, the adoption of cloud-based content and collaboration products is by no means universal. Concerns relating to governance, risk, and compliance with regard to cloud services are understandable, but it is not unusual to find them overstated.

Best Practices Implementing Cutting Edge Tech in FSI

Published By: Juniper Networks     Published Date: Jun 29, 2017
Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today. Several of the most visible tactics to kick-start innovation in FSI organisations include launching innovation or incubation centres, launching hackathons, partnering with or acquiring start-ups, venture investment or simply trying to develop solutions in house. Whilst each of these approaches has potential, there is a risk that organisations fall into the trap of innovation theatre, in other words, failing to effectively integrate cutting edge technology into key business functions.
