The public demands accountability for data breaches involving systems that include personally identifiable information (PII) and expects that all educational institutions will have the same levels of security that Fortune 500 companies do. However, most educational institutions have fewer IT security resources than their larger enterprise counterparts, yet they face the same threats from attackers.
Fortunately, there are solutions. This whitepaper by SANS instructor Jake Williams walks through an example of a typical breach in an education organization, highlighting common ways attackers gain access to a network and practical steps to reduce risk.

DDoS prevention appliances are the first line of defense for most service providers and large enterprises around the globe looking to protect themselves from brute-force attacks on network or resource availability, and with the unprecedented number, size, and coverage of DDoS attacks since the floodgates opens in 2008, vendors who build DDoS prevention solutions have seen and continue to see a significant increase in demand. This report covers actuals for 4Q14 and 1Q15.
The increase in enterprise WLANs is being driven largely by the rapid growth of mobile devices in the enterprise — what many are calling the "consumerization of IT" — and the resultant increase in enterprise mobility applications.
As enterprises work to replicate the development agility of internet companies and innovate in highly competitive markets, application development has grown increasingly complex. The large, monolithic codebases that traditionally power enterprise applications make it difficult to quickly launch new services. Siloed and potentially distributed development and operations teams present organizational alignment problems. On top of this, users are more demanding than ever – enterprises need to scale effectively and monitor deployments to ensure customers are provided with high performance and a consistent experience. Of course, all this needs to be done while providing always-on service availability.

From email to Dropbox and FTP, the file transfer process in most organizations is fraught with risk and simply does not meet most organizations’ corporate governance requirements. The result is that the status quo of file transfer in most organizations can be considered UFT—or Unmanaged File Transfer.
What is needed to overcome the problem, therefore, is Managed File Transfer (MFT)—a solution that will enable complete control over content, its lifecycle, access rights to that information, the maintenance of an audit trail, and disposition of data according to corporate governance requirements.
This white paper, sponsored by Attachmate and based on a survey conducted by Osterman Research, describes current file transfer practices and the extent of risk that organizations face by not managing file transfer properly. It also explains the benefits of MFT, provides guidelines for evaluating file transfer vendors, and describes FileXpress®, Attachmate’s MFT solution.
Midmarket enterprises are quite literally caught in the middle. They do not have the economies of scale of large enterprises, and their communications challenges are too complex to solve with an appstore. Although midmarket businesses have similar goals and requirements as larger enterprises, they don’t have the same degree of resources to accomplish them.
Every large enterprise has employees who need some level of access to its critical information resources, and many also provide a wide variety of types and levels of access to contractors, partners, vendors, and customers. Each of these points of access represents a source of potential business and compliance risk.

These days, business productivity depends largely on the ability to securely access and interact with a wide range of information over mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones. From sales executives to field technicians, the demand for accessing corporate content securely on mobile devices is growing exponentially.
In the past, implementing security measures to protect corporate content has involved VPNs, intranets, firewalls and passwords. However the increasing uptake of mobile devices in corporate settings means security measures must be implemented over a plethora of networks and devices.
bigtincan has created a powerful solution with BigTinCan hub. An application for mobile devices, it allows for the distribution, management and governance of a range of content, including documents and rich media content, with enterprise-grade security.

organisations, driven by changing working practices and supported by rapidly evolving technology.
Artificial intelligence (AI) leads the charge in the current
wave of digital transformation underway at many global
companies. Organizations large and small are actively
expanding their AI footprints as executives try to comprehend
more fully what AI is and how they can use it to capitalize
on business opportunities by gaining insight to the data
they collect that enables them to engage with customers
and hone a competitive edge. But, while AI may indeed be
the frontier of enterprise technology, there remain many
misconceptions about it.
Part of the confusion stems from the fact that AI is an
umbrella term that covers a range of technologies —
including machine learning, computer vision, natural language
processing, deep learning, and more — that are in various
stages of development and deployment. The use of AI for
dynamic pricing and targeted marketing has been in use for
a while, but actual AI computing where machines think like
humans is still many years from becoming mainstream. T

The survey’s findings highlight how the role of finance professionals at middlemarket firms is being viewed as every bit as transformational as that of finance professionals employed by large-enterprise firms.
Although there are many studies on change management and finance, the role of middle-market finance professionals has not always received the attention that it has in larger firms.

Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.
Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.
Most large enterprises have launched an initiative to adopt service-oriented architecture (SOA), but SOA is not a solution that comes in a tidy little box. SOA is a new way to design systems, and it is more about culture than it is about technology. SOA will impact many aspects of an organization—from software development and operations to accounting and incentive systems. Governance is critical.
