The Security Paradox

Published By: McAfee     Published Date: Nov 09, 2009
Medium organizations around the globe are increasingly concerned about cyberthreats, and the rising number of incidents shared publicly certainly justifies their worries. In the first half of 2009, for example, McAfee Labs saw almost as much new malware as it did in all of 2008. At the same time, most organizations have frozen or cut their IT security budgets. Threats up, budgets down. This is what we call the "security paradox."

Assessments: Ammunition for Facts-Based Decision Making (Podcast Transcription)

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Mar 25, 2009
Data centers are large, important investments that when properly designed, built and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise, yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems, with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems, such as thermal hot spots, lack of UPS, rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Feb 18, 2009
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

Spreadsheet Controls and the NAIC Model Audit Rule

Published By: Prodiance Corp.     Published Date: Dec 22, 2008
Since the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) made revisions to the Financial Reporting Model Regulation (Model Audit Rule) in June 2006, the insurance industry’s attention to the risks associated with financial reporting has been on the rise. Structured similarly to Section 404 of the Sarbanes‐Oxley Act, the Model Audit rule places a significant burden on C‐level executives to ensure their oversight in the internal controls for financial reporting (ICFR) process. Executives within these insurance organizations, both public and private, will be required to evaluate their internal controls in preparation for the first reports due in 2010 for the 2009 reporting period.

Fraud Prevention & Detection for Mission Critical Spreadsheets

Published By: Prodiance Corp.     Published Date: Dec 22, 2008
According to Baseline Consulting, approximately 32% of corporate data is contained in enduser computing (EUC) applications and approximately 68% is stored in IT controlled applications. These EUCs – primarily spreadsheets, PC databases (e.g. Access databases), BI reports, and word documents – are often stored on employee desktops and corporate file shares, and for the most part, are uncontrolled. They lack the proper safeguards and controls one would expect with IT controlled applications, including documentation, version control, back-up and archival, change control, testing, security and access control, and more.

Passing PCI Compliance Section 6.6: Code Reviews and Application Firewalls

Published By: HP - Enterprise     Published Date: Oct 16, 2008
If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement:  Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow.  Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.
