For small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), the impacts of a disaster can result in loss of or lack of access to data, applications, and work facilities. Those with disaster recovery plans in place fared much better than those without such contingency plans.
In today's economy, companies are trying to assess if they can afford to become PCI compliant. What many of those same companies forget to consider whether they can afford not to be compliant. Since 2007, merchants who were found to be non-compliant with PCI DSS faced fines of $5,000 to $25,000 per month from Visa. It may seem expensive for merchants to install and maintain new security measures to become PCI compliant and validated, but these costs are only a fraction of what it would cost a company to be found in non-compliance or suffer a data breach. Learn more about PCI DSS compliance and how NeoSpire Managed Hosting can help.
Tax revenues have been declining recently and some of this loss is caused by fraud, tax evasion, and various forms of tax cheating. The ineffective recovery techniques can give government agencies poor results, which results in 20% of broad-approach audits ending in "no charge". By using IBM SPSS Predictive Analytics Solutions it is possible to maximize revenues, analyze the data you already collect, detect non-compliant accounts efficiently, and identify important differences in tax records. This program has tremendous power and features an easy to use interface that focuses investigations on case that yield large adjustments ensuring a successful ROI for clients.

Several new mobile attacks have emerged that threaten enterprises. Most are re-using old tactics against mobilespecific services, such as SideStepper’s use of Man-In-The-Middle (MITM) against MDM, rather than employing new techniques or exploiting new vulnerabilities. However, when attacks against users are successful, they can result in the loss of both personal and business data. Download now to learn how to increase your mobile security.
In this webinar, you will learn how Allergan used Druva and AWS during the acquisition of ZELTIQ Aesthetics. You will hear how Allergan protected against accidental and purposeful data loss, and how backup data can be used for eDiscovery and forensic analysis.
Data loss remains a serious issue , and data loss prevention is an important tool for companies to reduce the risk of a breach. The Ponemon Institute conducted a global survey of 1,000 IT decision makers, to develop benchmarks for data loss prevention incidents, visibility, and maturity.
The greatest threat to enterprise data security comes from inside threats. Securing the enterprise requires an understanding of the data leak points, environment, people, and processes for managing sensitive information. This white paper explains how network-based and endpoint-based solutions can work together to provide the broadest protection available while ensuring scalability and manageability, and that employee productivity is not impacted.
Data breaches can carry very serious consequences, such as the revelation in February 2008 that that the Hannaford Brothers chain of supermarkets lost more than four million debit and credit card numbers to hackers. The bottom line is that organizations must implement Data Loss Prevention (DLP) systems to protect themselves against the growing array of threats they face from inadvertent and malicious data leaks from email, instant messaging and other systems.
In January of 2008, a random sample of online technical newsletter subscribers at midsize companies (100-5,000 employees) received an email invitation to participate in a survey about data protection solutions use at their organizations. The goal of the survey was to identify sources of and/or reasons for information security breaches, and to better understand how businesses are planning to protect themselves against data leaks. The following report presents top line results of the study.
Companies rely on knowledge assets, such as product formulas and customer databases. VPNs and network monitors can protect proprietary information from outsiders; but, they won't do much to prevent access by internal users. With the popularity of wireless networks, USB drives and other portable devices, it's all too easy for insiders to leak key data. This white paper explains how Trend Micro LeakProof 3.0 protects sensitive data at rest, in use, and in motion.
Encryption will help to protect data against unauthorized access by outsiders from lost or stolen devices such as laptops, thumb drives, and other removable media. But it does not protect against the insider threat-employees and contractors with authorized access to data who mistakenly or maliciously leak your most valuable assets.

The implications of data loss are significant. Organizations that ignore the law affecting collaboration and information sharing are at serious risk of litigation, fines and brand damage. The paradigm shift from organizationally-defined to user-defined information governance is making it that much more difficult to maintain control of business activity and data.
This informative white paper by legal firm Field Fisher Waterhouse evaluates the legal risks of uncontrolled collaboration and information sharing and what to do about them, while providing in-depth insights into:
• Landmark incidents that have influenced data protection laws
• How to navigate different jurisdictional privacy frameworks
• Top 4 types of legal risk to protect against
• Top 5 recommendations for implementing good governance
Whether in search of better managers, higher pay or more recognition, people are changing careers faster than ever. The average tenure of wage and salary employees is 4.6 years. With more and more employees working exclusively with corporate data, higher attrition translates to higher levels of data loss.
Many employees feel entitled to the work they’ve created and ignore security policies, simply taking the data they want. While some of this pilfered data is innocuous or already in the public realm, some of it is classified, such as customer and employee information, payment data and intellectual property.
Code42 provides enterprise organizations with a way to view, manage and protect data from walking out the door. Download the white paper to learn how.
Today’s organizations face a ballooning data management and risk problem. The use of laptops, tablets, workstations, servers and smartphones in the enterprise to create and store critical data is growing at an alarming rate.
Many companies still rely on a legacy, platform-specific data backup solution, even though it doesn’t provide consistent backup across the enterprise. This outdated approach becomes especially risky when IT faces a data migration initiative. Whether migrating to a new version or brand new hardware on the client or server—organizations risk immense data loss and an expensive, intensive disaster recovery undertaking if they launch a data migration effort without first properly securing their data.
Continuous, real-time data backup is the only viable solution for protecting all enterprise data while providing for a seamless migration process. But how do you achieve it?
