Cybercriminals can be goal-driven and patient, and they often have a singular focus, plenty of time and access to vast, modern technical resources. Both organized and forum-based criminals are working constantly to find innovative and efficient ways to steal information and money with the lowest risk to their personal freedom. If we wish to stay “one step ahead” of the threats detailed in this report, awareness of online criminal threats, techniques and markets is our best defense.
Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
Vulnerabilities are very common nowadays. Even being a safest network does not mean that it cannot be compromised. It's how you handle these vulnerability and flaws and rectify the issues. In order help the security engineers Qualys, Inc. pioneer security brings free guide on Top 10 reports for Managing Vulnerability. This paper cuts through the data overload generated by some vulnerability detection solutions.
Vulnerability Management (VM) means systematically finding and eliminating network vulnerabilities. Choosing a solution for VM is a critical step toward protecting your organization's network and data. Without proven, automated technology for precise detection and remediation, no network can withstand the daily onslaught of new vulnerabilities that threaten security.
This checklist from Qualys provides a 12 point shortlist of considerations to determine what solutions will work best for your organization.
Welcome to Web Application Security For Dummies! Web applications have become the Achilles heel of IT security. Web application vulnerabilities are now the most prevalent at more than 55 per cent of all server vulnerability disclosures. This figure doesn't include vulnerabilities in custom-developed web applications, so it may be just the tip of the iceberg. This book is all about understanding how to quickly find and fix vulnerabilities in web applications. The goal is to prevent attackers from gaining control over the application and obtaining easy access to the server, database, and other back-end IT resources.
ABI Research’s Securing Medical Devices Technology Analysis Report analyzes the current risks posed by medical devices, noting various security issues, potential vulnerabilities, and the threat landscape. It reviews implementation mechanisms and efforts in medical device cybersecurity and safety. The final section looks at how the healthcare ecosystem is responding to the issues and the vendors driving change.
VMware AirWatch® features a new – and more efficient – approach to Windows lifecycle management across any use case – whether deploying the OS to your remote workers, onboarding employees’ BYO machines, corporate deployments across your branch offices or managing a special line of business terminal. The unified endpoint management technologies fundamentally changes how organizations approach PC lifecycle management, allowing IT to deploy security patches and remediate vulnerabilities faster, install software more reliably and quickly and consolidate operational processes across devices on or off the domain.

A penetration test, or pen-test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies.
This eBook provides a simple guide to explain both penetration testing's purpose and a basic guide to getting you there. Download now and start testing your network today.
IBM QRadar and BigFix solutions empower IT security teams to view, prioritize and respond to endpoint intelligence in near real time.
How can an organization stay ahead of these advanced security threats? Maintaining a high level of baseline security by consistently enforcing security policies and patch levels on endpoints and servers is definitely required and important. But when networks can have multiple vulnerabilities per IP address at scan time, the slow process of mitigating and patching these weaknesses can result in dangerous security gaps. Today’s IT personnel have to make difficult, risk-based decisions on where to focus their efforts—often without having a complete picture of the security environment. This is even more critical when the number of vulnerabilities across the organization is increasing while the organization has limited resources and skills to fix the vulnerabilities.
New headlines provide ongoing evidence that IT Security teams are losing the battle against attackers, reinforcing the need to address the security of enterprise applications.This Analyst Insight reviews several practical steps you can take to get started now.
