Mitigating Risk Using Power Management System

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Mar 28, 2019
Because electricity is a key commodity for business it represents significant financial risk. Yet many power management systems remain isolated and separate from the rest of the business enterprise. The result is poor access to incomplete information, with only limited knowledge of risk exposure. An integrated, comprehensive power management system that includes metering, software, and power quality mitigation equipment offers the most holistic, systems-based approach to managing this risk exposure.

No More Chewy Centers: The Zero Trust Model Of Information Security

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption. This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

Practical Threat Management for Educational Institutions

Published By: AlienVault     Published Date: Mar 30, 2016
The public demands accountability for data breaches involving systems that include personally identifiable information (PII) and expects that all educational institutions will have the same levels of security that Fortune 500 companies do. However, most educational institutions have fewer IT security resources than their larger enterprise counterparts, yet they face the same threats from attackers. Fortunately, there are solutions. This whitepaper by SANS instructor Jake Williams walks through an example of a typical breach in an education organization, highlighting common ways attackers gain access to a network and practical steps to reduce risk. Download this whitepaper to learn: • Common security gaps that make educational institutions vulnerable to attack • Practical security controls that won't break the bank • Key questions to evaluate security vendors • A checklist summarizing steps you should take now to improve security

Preempt launches access control platform that bridges identity, behavior and risk

Published By: Preempt     Published Date: Nov 02, 2018
In our 2018 Trends in Information Security report, we outlined a concept we referred to as the ‘identity-aware perimeter.’ The essential idea is that as new architectures such as cloud, containers, mobility and IoT take hold, controlling access to resources will increasingly need to rely on identity as an alternative to purely network-based approaches focused more on ‘where’ you are than ‘who’ you are. By combining identity with user and entity behavior and risk scoring to gate access, Preempt fits squarely within this trend, which we think could be one of the most interesting and powerful to hit the infosec market in years. Preempt has few direct competitors, and its initial challenge will be finding ways to distinguish itself from vendors in adjacent categories such as adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), advanced threat protection, user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and cloud access security brokers (CASB), to name a few. Forging a new security category is never easy,

Preparing Financial Organisations for the EU GDPR: A four step guide to compliance

Published By: Egress ABM Pilot     Published Date: Oct 09, 2017
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a significant step change for data protection across EU member states. The EU GDPR also brings with it serious implications for organisations who suffer a breach. People will always make mistakes – and in busy and stressful workplaces such as banks and insurance firms the likelihood of this increases. Without the right processes and technologies in place to help avoid mistakes, sensitive client information remains at risk. This white paper provides financial services organisations with a four-step process to ensure compliance.

Preparing healthcare organisations for the EU GDPR: A four step guide to compliance

Published By: Egress ABM Pilot     Published Date: Oct 09, 2017
Patients trust healthcare organisations with vast amounts of their sensitive data – not just details on their medical and social wellbeing, but also personally identifiable information such as dates of birth and residential addresses. People will always make mistakes – and, unfortunately, in busy and stressful workplaces, such as hospitals and medical clinics, the likelihood of this increases. Without the right processes and technologies in place to help overcome this to avoid mistakes, sensitive patient information remains at risk.

Principles for Improving Internal Audit’s Value Proposition

Published By: ARMA     Published Date: Nov 04, 2014
All organizations depend on information to manage day-to-day operations, comply with regulations, gauge financial performance, and monitor strategic initiatives. This critical information resides in the organization's business records. As internal auditors conduct their annual risk assessment, they should consider how well business records are managed and assess the degree to which the risks to this information are understood.

Privileged Account Management for Dummies

Published By: Group M_IBM Q2'19     Published Date: Apr 11, 2019
The increase in sophisticated, targeted security threats by both external attackers and malicious insiders have made it extremely difficult for organizations to properly protect critical and sensitive information. The task of protecting these assets has only grown harder as IT environments have become more complex and widely distributed across geographic locations and in the cloud. Many recent high-profile breaches have one thing in common: They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords. In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience. Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated with their compromise an

Protect Your Data eBook

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: Apr 10, 2018
A New Security Model Worth Understanding—and Emulating Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network. Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change. The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.

Risk or Reward? Collaboration and Social Media In the Pharmaceutical Industry

Published By: Actiance, Inc.     Published Date: Jan 15, 2015
But what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA for use of these networks. Adopting new technologies that allow employees to share information and exchange ideas with each other and with your customers is often the best way to achieve better business results, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because the content people create using these technologies is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Pharmaceuticals companies must be knowledgeable of, and abide by, specific information retention regulations in every country where they do business, including those countries that prohibit data from leaving the countries’ borders. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or
