The importance of information security and data protection is growing by the day for organizations. This is due to an evolving threat landscape and a higher adoption of internet dependent services, which, in the process of creating new opportunities, also lead to more vulnerabilities. As a consequence, national and international regulations are also changing according to the new challenges, calling for better preparedness. The new BCI Information Security Report 2017 sponsored by Mimecast looks to benchmark how organizations handle sensitive data and how resilient organizations are when it comes to data protection.

This report examines enterprise security threats for iOS
and Android. While Android has higher consumer market
share, iOS commands more market share in the enterprise,
accounting for 72% of enterprise mobile activations in Q1
2015 compared to Android’s 26% activation share1
The perception that iOS is more secure has helped drive
its enterprise adoption, but this perception comes largely
from security trends observed in the consumer space.
Android, with a more open mobile platform and 81%
global market share2
, predictably invites more broad-based
attacks than iOS.
When it comes to iOS and Android in the enterprise,
however, both need threat protection because at a
fundamental level both platforms are subject to similar
vulnerabilities and attack methods. iOS attacks may be
relatively uncommon today, but they have happened and
can occur. Moreover, enterprises increasingly rely on iOS
app-distribution methods that forgo Apple’s app-review and
they face the risk that attackers will cont
The end of support date for Windows XP – April 8, 2014 – is rapidly approaching, after which the potential for security vulnerabilities will dramatically increase. Companies with many Windows XP machines still in use likely will need help upgrading in this compressed timeframe. Download this checklist to learn about a three-phase solution that can help internal IT staffs quickly and successfully migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7 or Windows 8 with a minimum of disruption to users and the organization.

The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies.
One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include:
• Loss or theft of device
• Unauthorized access to device
• Mobile operating system vulnerabilities
• Communication over untrusted networks
• Malware or malicious Apps
• Jailbreak or rooting activity
• Data loss through user behaviors
Public clouds have fundamentally changed the way organizations build,
operate, and manage applications. Security for applications in the cloud
is composed of hundreds of configuration parameters and is vastly

The uniqueness of cloud requires that security teams rethink classic
security concepts and adopt approaches that address serverless, dynamic,
and distributed cloud infrastructure. This includes rethinking security
practices across asset management, compliance, change management,

There are no flawless software systems or applications. When flaws result in security vulnerabilities, threat actors exploit them to compromise those systems and applications and, by extension, the endpoints on which they reside. Although software vendors issue vulnerability patches to remediate those flaws, many organizations do not apply all available patches to their production environments.

Security teams face sophisticated attacks that ‘hide in plain sight’ and often dwell in customer environments as long as 190 days1. And attackers increasingly employ stealthy techniques to move freely within a customer environment like using stolen credentials to masquerade as legitimate users. There has been a marginal decline in zero-day discoveries and an increase in ‘living off the land’ tactics that don’t rely on the traditional combination of vulnerabilities followed by malware. These tactics are more difficult to detect since they make use of legitimate tools.
This guide describes the need for continuous monitoring and offers a blueprint for creating a continuous security practice. As a result, continuous monitoring will give your organization the most comprehensive view of its global perimeter, and empower you to proactively identify and address potential threats enabled by vulnerabilities in software or weak system configurations.
"Healthcare organizations have significantly more to consider than the average business when it comes to network and device security. Concern over code modification, key compromise, password-based vulnerabilities and man-in-the-middle attacks have caused hospital CIOs and CISOs to rethink their security strategies and investments. The threat to these devices has even been assigned its own term: medjacking, a shortened form of “medical device hijacking.”
