Healthcare organizations are a favorite target for determined attackers. Any disruption to critical services provides a strong incentive to pay a ransom and patient medical data is highly lucrative for the information it contains.
Research finds that providers have traditionally under invested in IT security, which further compounds the problem. Read the report to learn:
• Important cyber security risks
• The impact of a data breach to your organization
• Key regulations around the globe
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.

Wearable operational video (such as helmet cams), mobile cameras and sensors, and other visual technologies can provide crucial intelligence, which then can be gathered, communicated to personnel in disparate locations, and integrated to enable unified collaboration for public security responses. The possibility is emerging for a new generation of video applications that will enhance public security and disaster management.

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small, varied and highly mobile, and they are loaded with their own applications, can act as WAPs, and often contain outdated firmware or are jailbroken.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
best practices are incorporated throughout the lifecycle of the
Protecting confidential data while keeping mobile users productive.
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
the robust DLP controls common in laptop management
Companies are facing massive cyber security challenges – many of which are rooted in the endpoint. In fact, according to IDC, 70% of successful breaches begin at the endpoint. If you are a McAfee customer, and still have breaches in your endpoint security, then something isn’t working. Perhaps you’re struggling to prevent advanced attacks, or your security team may be burdened by maintaining overly complex policies. You and your end users may even be facing performance issues.
If you are experiencing any of these challenges, then your endpoint security products may actually be creating more problems than they solve. Ask yourself these questions for a cybersecurity reality check.
