The adoption of mobile in the enterprise space is accelerating. Users of mobile devices choose what applications they want to use, but it is up to the enterprise to predict the data that they will be accessing. With that change, comes a new spectrum of risk that CISOs must consider.
Cyber security has been a work in progress for decades. As security pros, we’ve learned a lot about how to defend our networks. We have more tools at our disposal than ever before. And for the first time in history, we are receiving tangible support from upper management for security work. We’ve never had it so good, right? Yet, we feel more
helpless than ever. Most of the time, we’re overwhelmed and feel like we’re perpetually playing catch up.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was first introduced in 2004 to increase controls over credit card holder data and to reduce the chances of credit card fraud. Validation is required annually and over the years, it has evolved with new revisions periodically. The latest one, version 3.2 came into force in April 2016. Until the end of January 2018, PCI DSS and Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA-DSS) are considered best practice to implement, and starting February 1, 2018, are considered a requirement.
As the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe prepare for Brexit (Britain’s exit from the European Union), information security experts are left wondering what this would mean to the security and risk management processes that have been put in place in the past and how they need to adjust to the emerging reality. This document discusses the impact of Brexit on privileged access management and what information security professionals may consider as immediate solutions to mitigate risks.
Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.

For many organizations, managing network vulnerabilities and risks is a lesson in frustration. Vulnerability scans are typically conducted in response to compliance mandates, and they can reveal up to tens of thousands of exposures—depending upon network size. Scan results are often a complex puzzle of misconfigured devices, unpatched software, and outdated or obsolete systems. And security administrators must struggle to quickly identify and remediate or mitigate the exposures that pose the greatest risk.

Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
As the pressures of digital disruption force companies to either transform or die, companies in Asia’s BFSI sector are rushing to integrate cutting-edge technologies and roll-out innovative new services to their customers.
Fortunately, thanks to rapidly advancing technologies, developments in the regulatory landscape and the initiative of leading BFSI organisations, we are seeing incredible examples of innovation within the sector on a monthly, if not weekly, basis.
The digital economy is transforming the financial services sector. The pace of innovation is accelerating, customers have higher expectations than ever, and new competitors are emerging from nontraditional markets. At the same time, financial services has long been a favorite target of cyber attackers, and despite firms’ best efforts, cybersecurity threats are rising and attacks are more successful than ever. Financial services firms need a more effective, adaptable approach to detecting and stopping cyberthreats.
Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today.
OpenLab is a centre of innovation provided by Juniper, for business leaders who want to build network-integrated software applications and solutions quickly and securely.

The digital, connected world is fundamentally changing the dynamics of the financial services industry. Consumers expect anytime and anywhere access with a customer experience commensurate with the Internet world, while fintech start-ups disrupt established value chains, driving a need to deliver faster innovation. This is creating tremendous pressure on the network, with escalating demands for performance and agility, while cost control and compliance imperatives remain as dominant as ever. This paper looks at optimal strategies for CIOs and CTOs, exploring how the future network needs to evolve to both drive operational effectiveness and enable business change, while assessing key investment and strategic considerations for equipping the network for the digital financial institution.
This paper presents a cost/benefit case for two leading enterprise database contenders -- IBM DB2 11.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (DB2 11.1 LUW) and Oracle Database 12c -- with regard to delivering effective security capabilities, high-performance OLTP capacity and throughput, and efficient systems configuration and management automation. Comparisons are of database installations in the telecommunications, healthcare, and consumer banking industries. For OLTP workloads in these environments, three-year costs average 32 percent less for use of DB2 11.1 compared to Oracle 12c.
With the advent of big data, organizations worldwide are
attempting to use data and analytics to solve problems previously
out of their reach. Many are applying big data and analytics
to create competitive advantage within their markets, often
focusing on building a thorough understanding of their
High-priority big data and analytics projects often target
customer-centric outcomes such as improving customer loyalty
or improving up-selling. In fact, an IBM Institute for Business
Value study found that nearly half of all organizations with active
big data pilots or implementations identified customer-centric
outcomes as a top objective (see Figure 1).1 However, big data
and analytics can also help companies understand how changes
to products or services will impact customers, as well as address
aspects of security and intelligence, risk and financial management,
and operational optimization.
A recent survey by IBM and the Ponemon Institute of more than 2,400 security professionals worldwide turned up some astounding findings: While more than half—53 percent—of respondents said that in the past two years they had suffered at least one data breach, and nearly three quarters—74 percent—said that in the past one year they had faced threats from human error, only 25 percent have an incident management plan in place to address the inevitable. And two thirds—66 percent—lack confidence that their company can effectively
recover from an attack.
Ponemon Institute is pleased to present the results of Uncovering the Risks of SAP Cyber Breaches sponsored by Onapsis. The purpose of this study is to understand the threat of an SAP cyber breach and how companies are managing the risk of information theft, modification of data and disruption of business processes. The companies represented in this study say their SAP platform has been breached an average of two times in the past 24 months.
Mobile is the new normal for users to connect and consume content, you need to consider apps, mobile integration,security, analytics, development tools, life-cycle management, various mobile stakeholders, and the overall enterprise mobile ecosystem.
There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
The VMware 2016 State of the Digital Workspace Report was performed in July 2016 and is a study that examined digital workspace adoption among global organizations across industries. Data represents a survey of 1,263 business decision makers (BDMs) and IT influencers to examine the worldwide progress in transitioning from the client-server era to the mobile-cloud era.
Respondents acknowledged that game-changing IT relies on organizations adopting a digital workspace that includes security and identify management as vital components. With realistic prospects of achieving astounding return on investment (ROI), even businesses that cited obstacles to adoption may want to consider taking another look at business mobility initiatives.
