Threat actors increasingly look toward illicit cryptomining as an easy source of income.
Cryptomining is the production of virtual currency, also known as cryptocurrency, such
as Bitcoin and Monero. It comes at the expense of system performance and power
consumption. Moreover, threat actors are infiltrating networks to use their victims’
computer resources to do this work for them. In this white paper, you will learn how to
defend your organization from illicit cryptomining with the Cisco® security portfolio.
As of May 2017, according to a report from The Depository Trust &
Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which provides financial transaction and data processing services for the global financial industry, cloud computing has reached a tipping point1. Today, financial services companies can benefit from the capabilities and cost efficiencies of the cloud. In October of 2016, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) and the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) jointly announced enhanced cyber risk management standards for financial institutions in an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR)2. These proposed standards for enhanced cybersecurity are aimed at protecting the entire financial system, not just the institution. To meet these new standards, financial institutions will require the right cloud-based network security

From cloud to open banking APIs, these play a defining role in enabling banks to create new digital products and services, refresh the bank branch, find new customer segments, and monetize underutilized data and information assets.
Data is growing at amazing rates and will continue this rapid rate of growth. New techniques in data processing and analytics including AI, machine and deep learning allow specially designed applications to not only analyze data but learn from the analysis and make predictions.
Computer systems consisting of multi-core CPUs or GPUs using parallel processing and extremely fast networks are required to process the data. However, legacy storage solutions are based on architectures that are decades old, un-scalable and not well suited for the massive concurrency required by machine learning. Legacy storage is becoming a bottleneck in processing big data and a new storage technology is needed to meet data analytics performance needs.
Pure Storage has significant expertise creating scalable, enterprise-class, flash-optimized storage platforms, and with FlashBlade, Pure Storage has crafted a turnkey, purpose-built platform that is well suited to cost effectively handle the performance and capacity requirements of genomics workflows.

Sanctions screening and fraud prevention solutions use real-time detection to prevent terrorist financing and financial crime; whereas anti-money laundering (AML) primarily follows an “observe and report” process. Such a process is all that is currently required by many regulators. Increasingly though, international compliance teams are choosing to stop transactions before they are executed – based on suspicions of money laundering activity. More and more, the industry has been asking itself if this approach of rejecting suspicious activity is a more effective strategy to prevent money laundering. This paper explores where and why AML real-time detection might make sense as a new paradigm for global financial institutions.

The data integration tool market was worth approximately $2.8 billion in constant currency at the end of 2015, an increase of 10.5% from the end of 2014. The discipline of data integration comprises the practices, architectural techniques and tools that ingest, transform, combine and provision data across the spectrum of information types in the enterprise and beyond — to meet the data consumption requirements of all applications and business processes.
The biggest changes in the market from 2015 are the increased demand for data virtualization, the growing use of data integration tools to combine "data lakes" with existing integration solutions, and the overall expectation that data integration will become cloud- and on-premises-agnostic.

The examples that follow illustrate some of the actual challenges that legacy ERP solutions cannot meet. The examples are placed within 5 broad categories of benefits that NetSuite OneWorld customers realised after deploying the cloud-based solution.
1. Standardising business processes and data
2. Omnichannel on a common platform
3. Multiple brands on a common platform
4. Rapid and easy global expansion
5. Managing multicurrency, international business
Both are fueled by a drive for progress, for pushing
boundaries and advancing the status quo. In these fields,
new trends are like a currency. Keeping ahead of the
next big trend means being aware of the next big seller
and allocating all the right resources – fashion design,
manufacturing, and marketing – for maximum impact.
Miss the hype and the next fashion season is bound to
hurt the bottom line.
New trends are also important to marketers because
owning a new trend is a way to differentiate in today’s
fast-moving digital landscape. It’s a way to stand out
from the pack by investing strategically in the right
approaches and technologies at the right time, then
reaping the benefits organically by leading where others
follow. Naturally, making these decisions requires a bit
of trial and error. Nobody has a magic crystal ball that
guarantees success. But as a rule of thumb, the companies
winning in digital marketing are the ones willing to
adopt new technologies while keeping an sharp.
2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.

Innovative delivery and content is THE currency in advertising and only programmatic platforms can deliver the value to the advertiser to ensure the return on these immersive media formats. That movement happened quickly and brands had to still find a way to connect and with the accountability being included, could finally measure success based on more than recall or click through rate (CTR).
Programmatic advertising provides for repeatable, automated advertising that allows for exponential success and accountability, which is precisely what advertisers historically were missing and continually seek.
