How to think about the risk to data from the mobile ecosystem
Mobile devices, even those that are corporate owned, are personal. Your CEO uses the same smartphone to send confidential emails, snap family photos, inspect customer records, get directions to meetings, and scrutinize financial reports. Every employee in your organization does the same thing. Your organization's critical data is constantly being accessed by mobile devices, and once it leaves the network you have no visibility into where it goes, and little or no ability to enforce your security policy to protect it.
Your organization’s sensitive data has made the mobile ecosystem the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that every CISO must now understand. Take a deep dive into all twelve elements of the Mobile Risk Matrix in the interactive table below.

Things are not as they used to be in the enterprise. Today’s employees are mobile, they’re storing and accessing data in cloud apps, and are in disparate networks. While the present-day digital world has changed, the objective of data protection has not: you must still ensure the security of your critical data and intellectual property. However, the threat-centric security approach, with its static policies forces decisions about cyber activity with no insight into the broader context. The result is a disproportionate number of flagged activities, overwhelming security teams who have no way to understand the ones most worthy of investigation. Read Rethinking Data Security with a Risk-Adaptive Approach to learn how a human-centric, risk-adaptive approach can help your organization be more proactive in order to:
• Automate policy enforcement to deter data loss events
• Reduce the number of security alerts
• Cut down on incident investigation time

In a BYOD world, companies can choose to secure and manage the entire mobile device user pool or secure portions of that community. Either way, steps must be taken to prevent unauthorized access to network resources and data loss. Enterprises should consider solutions that allow policies to be applied based on user, device, network, application, and data leakage risks.
This survey shows how organizations leverage strategic risk management and mitigation solutions such as risk analysis, security information event management (SIEM), and vulnerability scanning as part of their overall risk and compliance programs.
McAfee® Database Activity Monitoring automatically finds databases on your network, protects them with preconfigured defenses, and helps you build a custom security policy for your environment making it easier to demonstrate compliance to auditors.

Cost savings, storage, ease of updates. The allure of the cloud is hard to ignore, with some reports citing over 90% of organizations using cloud services in some manner. But all the benefits of the cloud disappear if you can't keep your data and users safe. In a perimeter-less world, it's identity that becomes the heart of security. Join us to discover why modern security starts with identity first and how identity can help overcome cloud frustrations.

The greatest threat to enterprise data security comes from inside threats. Securing the enterprise requires an understanding of the data leak points, environment, people, and processes for managing sensitive information. This white paper explains how network-based and endpoint-based solutions can work together to provide the broadest protection available while ensuring scalability and manageability, and that employee productivity is not impacted.
Companies rely on knowledge assets, such as product formulas and customer databases. VPNs and network monitors can protect proprietary information from outsiders; but, they won't do much to prevent access by internal users. With the popularity of wireless networks, USB drives and other portable devices, it's all too easy for insiders to leak key data. This white paper explains how Trend Micro LeakProof 3.0 protects sensitive data at rest, in use, and in motion.
Encryption will help to protect data against unauthorized access by outsiders from lost or stolen devices such as laptops, thumb drives, and other removable media. But it does not protect against the insider threat-employees and contractors with authorized access to data who mistakenly or maliciously leak your most valuable assets.
Mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, enable increasing numbers of employees to work "anywhere, anytime."The security of enterprise data is a key concern, particularly on mobile devices that are easily lost or stolen. The security risk is further heightened by the proliferation of employee-owned mobile devices in many enterprises. Employees will almost always take the path of least resistance in leveraging mobile devices for business purposes, which may lead to unsafe computing practices. A clearly documented and enforceable mobile security policy is critical to reducing the risk of data loss.
Data security isn’t just about data security. It’s about job security. And marketing. And finance. And company valuation. Download the new eBook to see what questions you need to ask about your organization’s security measures, why they matter, and what else you need to know. Here’s what you need to ask your team:
1. Do you feel limited by budget or staff size?
2. How often do you see unsanctioned cloud services in use?
3. Are you protecting yourself against insider threats?
4. Do you have a cybersecurity task force in place?
5. Is your "bring your own device" policy secure?
This strategic view is the proverbial "gold" that can be mined from your data protection systems; it is the asset that will enable IT management to prioritize activity to bring activities in line with business objectives and communicate policy compliance to corporate officers and data owners.
