My name is Jonathan McCaffrey and I work on the infrastructure team here at Riot. This is the first post in a series where we’ll go deep on how we deploy and operate backend features around the globe. Before we dive into the technical details, it’s important to understand how Rioters think about feature development. Player value is paramount at Riot, and development teams often work directly with the player community to inform features and improvements. In order to provide the best possible player experience, we need to move fast and maintain the ability to rapidly change plans based upon feedback. The infrastructure team’s mission is to pave the way for our developers to do just that - the more we empower Riot teams, the faster features can be shipped to players to enjoy.

Email. It’s the number-one business application used by organizations. It’s also the number-one method used to execute cyberattacks, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonations, and the spread of threats that are already internal to your organization. In fact, 91 percent of all cyberattacks start with an email. And your organization can’t function for long without email. How many hours of email downtime can your organization comfortably live with? If email isn’t accessible due to an adverse incident like malicious intent, human error or technical failure, your organization would likely suffer.
The only way to get ahead of cybercriminals and to holistically protect your business is to adopt a new approach to email security. You need a multidimensional approach that brings together threat protection, adaptability, durability and recoverability in a single cloud-based service. You need to enable these four dimensions to truly provide cyber resilience for your email.
Once a “consumer-only” problem, Ransomware now has an established business case for profitability, and that’s driving criminals to expand their operations and hunt for more lucrative prey. As a result, commercial enterprises and other large organizations are increasingly in the crosshairs.

? The number of new ransomware variants increased 17% in Q1 2016
? The FBI estimates that ransomware will net criminals $1 billion in 2016
This white paper dives into the inner workings of ransomware, its perpetrators and how they are evolving to maximize profits. You’ll also learn how companies are fighting back, and review best practices for protecting your organization from becoming another victim of electronic extortion.

How to think about the risk to data from the mobile ecosystem
Mobile devices, even those that are corporate owned, are personal. Your CEO uses the same smartphone to send confidential emails, snap family photos, inspect customer records, get directions to meetings, and scrutinize financial reports. Every employee in your organization does the same thing. Your organization's critical data is constantly being accessed by mobile devices, and once it leaves the network you have no visibility into where it goes, and little or no ability to enforce your security policy to protect it.
Your organization’s sensitive data has made the mobile ecosystem the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that every CISO must now understand. Take a deep dive into all twelve elements of the Mobile Risk Matrix in the interactive table below.
A CEO scans the competitive landscape, and decides it’s time to implement new strategies or to examine internal factors that are limiting growth. With buy-in from senior leadership, the company makes a significant investment in a months-long process designed to yield actionable insights. A few areas may be singled out for a deep-dive examination of how work is performed and where pain points exist. After interviewing employees at various levels, creating detailed documentation, and making recommendations, the company is ready to pilot changes, measure results, and roll out strategies to larger groups of stakeholders.
collectd is an open source daemon that collects system and application performance metrics. With this data, collectd then has the ability to work alongside other tools to help identify trends, issues and relationships not easily observable.
Read this e-book to get a deep dive into what collectd is and how you can begin incorporating it into your organization’s environment.
