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.

Assuring Digital Trust

Published By: Infosys     Published Date: Sep 05, 2019
In today's hyperconnected and digitized world, cybersecurity has become an important strategic imperative owing to the sophistication of cybercrime. Digital businesses require complex and distributed interactions among people, applications and data - on premise, off-premise, on mobile devices and in the cloud. The result is an increase in the attack surfaces that are hard to protect and defend. As the perimeter continues to diminish, visibility into the environment gets tougher. Operational Technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) massively expand the scope of security strategy and operations. When a massively distributed fleet of autonomous devices that can make decisions is combined, directly affecting the physical state of people and things, there is a considerable risk to manage. This issue is not limited to the chief information security officer (CISO) but needs the involvement and sponsorship of the leadership and the board.
