Once a “consumer-only” problem, Ransomware now has an established business case for profitability, and that’s driving criminals to expand their operations and hunt for more lucrative prey. As a result, commercial enterprises and other large organizations are increasingly in the crosshairs.
Consider these facts:
? Ransomware attacks doubled in 2015
? The number of new ransomware variants increased 17% in Q1 2016
? The FBI estimates that ransomware will net criminals $1 billion in 2016
This white paper dives into the inner workings of ransomware, its perpetrators and how they are evolving to maximize profits. You’ll also learn how companies are fighting back, and review best practices for protecting your organization from becoming another victim of electronic extortion.
Customers now expect the same level of service on social media from financial firms, insurance providers, and other regulated enterprises as they receive from technology and retail companies. But without the right compliance controls in place, your organization could violate customer privacy rules and other regulatory guidelines.
Are you taking the right steps to ensure compliance?

Not so long ago, if you asked a business executive, “what is the most irreplaceable part of your business?” they might have pointed at their building or their employees. The really forward-thinking execs may have chosen their customers. But the reality is that businesses have insurance to deal with the loss of a building; they can hire new employees; and they can acquire new customers. The one thing that is truly irreplaceable is their data. Lose that and you really are out of business.
The potential risks to your data can be as subtle as the malfunction of tiny areas on a disk drive or as enormous as the failure of an entire data center. That means it’s not enough just to protect your data — you must also select the best way to protect it. To deliver that protection in an economical and rapidly recoverable way requires a system that gives you complete control to determine levels of data protection based on the type of data.
In this paper, we’ll talk about the science of data protect

Business leaders today face the challenge of moving their enterprises to the next level, that of digital business transformation and revolution — coupling digital technologies with organizational, operationaland business model innovation to create new ways of operating and growing the business.
The "4th Industrial Revolution" enables enterprises to drive changes in their business models and ecosystems, leveraging digital competences and facilitating accelerated revenue and profit growth going forward.
In this study, we set to explore, with the help of ISMG, how enterprises view mobile security risks, what capabilities they are currently deploying vis-a`-vis the four pillars of the framework and what their short-to- medium-term plans are to extend these capabilities.
As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents in India saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 6% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day.
The Solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive.

The What, Why and How to Employ NAC to Apply Guest Networking, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Endpoint Security Policies.
Many of today's endpoints are neither known nor protected. According to Gartner, enterprises are only aware of 80 percent of the devices on their network. Those 20 percent of unknown devices are inside the perimeter of the network, are unmanaged and provide users with access. They are small, varied and highly mobile, and they are loaded with their own applications, can act as WAPs, and often contain outdated firmware or are jailbroken. Even as the devices are accessing personal applications on the web, they are also accessing corporate resources such as e-mail-all from the very same unmanaged devices, which have not been vetted by the security organization. Smartphones, notebooks, netbooks, iPads, e-readers, gaming consoles and more-the list of personal devices attempting access to employer networks seems to grow every day in what's come to be known as the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) era in networking.
Security from design through deployment.
Mobile devices are now a reality in many organizations.
Building on Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile
Application Management (MAM), organizations are
increasingly developing their own enterprise apps for specific
job tasks to improve productivity, business partnerships,
customer satisfaction and bottom-line performance. However,
to achieve these benefits, it is imperative that mobile security

The terms Data Leak Prevention (DLP) and Container are
beginning to dominate the mobile management
conversation. Over the past few years great strides have been
made in providing the tools and solutions that offer
management and security for mobile devices; both for devices
the enterprise owns and those that employees own.
While these solutions generally meet the need to secure the
device, they have been lacking in some of the more
sophisticated security aspects that are commonplace in laptop
and distributed network deployments. Specifically lacking are
