And then imagine processing power strong
enough to make sense of all this data in every
language and in every dimension. Unless
you’ve achieved that digital data nirvana (and
you haven’t told the rest of us), you’re going
to have some unknowns in your world.
In the world of security, unknown threats exist
outside the enterprise in the form of malicious
actors, state-sponsored attacks and malware
that moves fast and destroys everything
it touches. The unknown exists inside the
enterprise in the form of insider threat from
rogue employees or careless contractors –
which was deemed by 24% of our survey
respondents to pose the most serious risk to
their organizations. The unknown exists in the
form of new devices, new cloud applications,
and new data. The unknown is what keeps
CISOs, what keeps you, up at night – and we
know because we asked you.
"Extracting value from data is central to the digital
transformation required for businesses to succeed
in the decades to come. Buried in data are insights
that reveals what your customers need and how
they want to receive it, how sales, manufacturing,
distribution, and other aspects of business operations
are functioning, what risks are arising to threaten
the business, and more. That insight empowers your
businesses to reach new customers, develop and
deliver new products, to operate more efficiently
and more effectively, and even to develop new
business models. "

An Executive Strategy Guide Brought To You By The Cyber Resilience Think Tank
Big budget or not, CISOs must make threat intelligence a priority and learn how to focus on only the data that matters—data that will help mitigate future risks.
Though the technical definition of threat intelligence may change depending on who you ask, one factor remains constant: If threat intelligence isn’t part of your cyber resilience strategy in some capacity, you have a massive gap on your hands. And you may be blindsided by a phishing attack, malware incident or worse.

What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
can see what’s on the horizon. Many clues are out there—and obvious.
For years, Cisco has been warning defenders about escalating cybercriminal activity around the globe.
In this, our latest annual cybersecurity report, we present data and analysis from Cisco threat researchers and several of our technology partners about attacker behavior observed over the past 12 to 18 months.
Mobility, social media, analytics and the cloud are revolutionizing how data is accessed, used, and secured for small to midsize businesses. With data security threats are on the rise, keep your business running with Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.

In the wake of data hacks and privacy concerns, enterprises are working extra hard to make sure they secure customer data from external threats. But what about securing data internally? Organizations unknowingly leave a big security hole in their own systems when they fail to have structured internal processes to handle access requests for employees, which could have disastrous implications for data security.
A leading US bank sought to move its internal applications to a secure system for a standard and consistent access rights experience. See how Infosys helped and the five key takeaways from the project.
Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and
new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various
manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of
security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well.
Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years
consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat
detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the
security market in 2018. This visibility has unleashed the potential for automation to become more widely adopted, and not
a moment too soon, given the scale and complexity of the thre
Cloud investment continues to grow
over 20% annually as organizations are
looking for faster time to deployment,
scalability, reduced maintenance, and
lower cost. But there is one aspect
of cloud that consistently worries IT
and security professionals – how to
achieve high levels of security in the
cloud. As cloud adoption increases, the
fears of unauthorized access, stolen
identities, data and privacy loss, and
confidentiality and compliance issues
are rising right along with it.
This report has been produced by the
350,000 member Information Security
Community on LinkedIn in partnership
with Crowd Research Partners
to explore how organizations are
responding to the security threats in the
cloud and what tools and best practices
IT cybersecurity leaders are considering
in their move to the cloud.
Cloud services are a pillar of a digital transformation,
but they have also become a thorn in the side of many
security architects. As data and applications that were
once behind the enterprise firewall began roaming
free—on smartphones, between Internet-of-Things
(IoT) devices, and in the cloud—the threat landscape
expanded rapidly. Security architects scrambled to adjust
their technologies, policies, and procedures. But just
when they thought they had a handle on securing their
cloud-connected enterprises, new business imperatives
indicated that one cloud wasn’t enough.
Modern enterprises operate in a multi-cloud world,
where the threat landscape has reached a new level of
complexity. Security teams are juggling a hodgepodge
of policies, threat reports, and management tools. When
each cloud operates in its own silo, the security architect
has even more difficulty supporting the CISO or CIO with a
coherent, defensible security posture.
Enterprise chief information security officers (CISOs) are seeking ways to leverage existing security
investments to bridge the divide between largely siloed security systems. The focus is on reducing
the number of consoles needed to manage the security infrastructure. Network security vendors have
a significant role to play in bridging the communication gap between these systems. The creation of a
unified defense architecture enables threat data exchange between existing security systems. It helps
automate the process of raising an organization's security posture when a security infrastructure
component detects a threat.

The personal cloud is the most persistent data loss threat to the enterprise today because many employees use their own cloud services to store work documents. Traditionally, content security solutions functionally link security and storage which requires the migration of work documents to a new content storage repository in order to enforce security policies. This increases complexity by creating more repositories for the enterprise to manage. Most importantly, this approach does not solve the personal cloud problem because individual users continue to store their work documents, for convenience, in cloud services that IT cannot secure.

High-profile data breaches continue to make headlines as organizations struggle to manage information security in the face of rapidly changing applications, data centers, and the cloud. Against this backdrop, data masking has emerged as one of the most effective ways to protect sensitive test data from insider and outsider threats alike.
While masking is now the de facto standard for protecting non-production data, implementing it alongside virtual data technologies has elevated its effectiveness even further.

The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.
In the last few years there have been radical changes in the ways organizations operate and people work. Explosion of data, increased mobile demands, and the globalization of business in general are making 24/7 access to people and information the norm. Sophisticated cyber attacks are requiring robust systems security designed to counter new threats. And velocity is now essential when delivering new IT services.
