Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone.
These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates.
This white paper highlights:
Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks;
Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors;
How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.

Security and risk (S&R) pros have the challenging task of using finite resources (including budget, time, and people) to protect their businesses from every possible attack type. On top of this, S&R pros don’t just need to watch out for threats coming from outside their walls, but must keep an eye on internal threats as well.
S&R decision-makers face threats from three groups of insiders – compromised accounts (internal accounts that have been compromised by external attacks), careless misuse (internal policy violators and those who accidentally leak or expose data or systems), and malicious insiders (insiders who purposefully take or misuse data or exploit systems), and they must be prepared for each.
In February 2017, Mimecast commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise security readiness for internal email threats.
As a cloud-based business services suite, Microsoft® Office 365™ provides organizations with access to web, mobile and desktop versions of traditional Office software tools, cloud storage space for enterprise file sharing, and hosted services for communication and social. By making these services available across desktop, mobile, and web platforms, Microsoft is experiencing increased adoption from both consumers and businesses while expanding the possibilities for anytime-anywhere collaboration.
Yet for all its promise, Office 365 poses a meaningful adoption and security challenges for the IT organization. Download this whitepaper to discover how VMware Workspace ONE™ brings together the power of VMware AirWatch® and VMware Identity Manager™ to accelerate and secure Office 365 deployments.

When we set out to conduct this study, we thought there would be quite marked differences between needs and expectations of employees from different countries and generations. In the end, we found that to be untrue."
Sodexo Benefits and Rewards Services conducted a study across five countries comparing Millennials and non-Millennials in the workplace and found that the top five expectations of each group were exactly the same:
Security and protection for their future, health and family
Manage own time/work-life balance
Monetary recognition for personal contribution
Career development, regular and ongoing feedback
Personal development inside as well as outside of the workplace

Transportation risk comes in many forms and can be very hard, if not impossible, to predict. These include extreme weather, theft, hijacked trailers, global crises, cargo lost at sea, catastrophic truck or rail accidents, truck fires and a whole lot more.
In 2014, the University of Tennessee Global Supply Chain Institute published a white paper titled Managing Risk in the Global Supply Chain. The most surprising finding in the research was that even
though 100% of supply chain executives acknowledged insurance as a highly effective risk mitigation tool, it was simply not on their radar screen, nor in their purview.
Yet, the National Cargo Security Council estimates that there is an annual global financial impact from cargo loss of $50 billion.

Credit, debit and ATM card fraud costs consumers, merchants and financial institutions billions in losses every year. The payment card industry has responded by creating the PCI security standard. Merchants that fail to comply with PCI face increased risk of security breaches and substantial contractual penalties. Tripp Lite Wall-Mount Rack Enclosures help merchants achieve PCI compliance by securing network/telecommunications hardware and storage media in retail point-of-sale environments and other locations.
The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection.
Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organization’s network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and
land with the victim’s infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victim’s business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the
