Over the past several years data loss and data leaks have been a regular part of headline news. From high-profile hacks of retailers such as Target and Home Depot to inadvertent email data leaks from large multi-national banks to targeted leaks of sensitive government documents, it is becoming clear throughout the private and public sector that data security or the lack thereof is an existential threat to business operations. While there are many vendors focused on data encryption, data masking is actually the single most effective mechanism for an IT organization to dramatically reduce or even eliminate the risk of data loss.
The impact of information is changing and while this change provides great opportunities, it also presents greater risks. Traditional monitoring processes and technology advancements alone no longer deliver effective identification, management, and prevention of business risks, instead the changing impact of information demands early detection and root cause analysis. Learn how leading companies are magnifying exploitation of information security risks, along with advancing identification and protection of compliance risks.

Global financial organizations are facing increasing demands from the business for more granularity, transparency, reporting and security. If you’re on the IT side, you know this adds a different set of ‘mores’ to the equation: More duplication, delays, and people. What’s the net-net? More cost and more risk.

In the PC era, employees operated from within a well defined enterprise IT perimeter and passwords were sufficient to establish user trust. However, in today’s mobile-cloud environment, the enterprise perimeter has dissolved and business information is available to users on a variety of endpoints, apps, services, networks, locations. In this dynamic access environment, organizations need a different approach to security that is able to:
• Establish user trust using multiple factor authentication
• Correlate user trust with other factors such as endpoint, app, network, and more
• Apply adaptive, risk-based policies that match the user’s environment

The scope and value that modern IT service delivery provides a business is increasing dramatically, according to a new research reportfrom Enterprise Management Associates (EMA).
And yet in some organizations legacy ITSM systems contribute significantly to reduced credibility for IT departments who fail to integrate with and support important business concerns. This lack of modern IT service delivery creates multiple issues for the enterprise, including:
Increasing divergence of IT and business performance
Rising costs due to service delivery complexity
Inability to measure and protect a business from potential risks
Informed by extensive research and two compelling deployment narratives, this report examines what EMA calls “next-generation ITSM” and its contributions toward optimizing changing IT and business requirements. EMA contrasts these advances with the risks of staying with legacy ITSM models and then evaluates and itemizes the risks of “doing nothing” by allowing legacy ITS

he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions.
Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles.
Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime. Download th
