Most enterprises and government organizations that experience data breaches have traditional security point solutions, log management, and security information and event management (SIEM) solutions in place. However, SIEM is not a comprehensive solution on its own. There has been a great deal of focus on the attack-chain – or kill-chain – of steps in the process leading to these breaches.
On May 25, 2018, per the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), organizations with business ties to the European Union will need to comply to GDPR standards. The cost of non-compliance are stiff fines. The GDPR contains nearly 100 separate and nuanced articles that can be difficult to understand even if you are a data privacy expert.
This short primer is a cheat sheet to help both the data privacy expert and non-expert approach the GDPR with key takeaways. Download your free copy of “A Short Primer of GDPR Essentials” to learn:
*Financial Implications: The potential impact of a GDPR breach condition.
*Key Focus Areas: A "new considerations checklist" for data privacy experts. It can also be used as a basic "bootstrapping checklist" for those less versed in data privacy.

We’ve arrived at the second anniversary of the Equifax breach and we now know much more about what happened due to the August 2018 release of the GAO Report. New information came out of that report that was not well-understood at the time of the breach. For example, did you know that while Equifax used a tool for network layer decryption, they had certificates nine months out of date? This lapse gave the threat actors all the time they needed to break in and exfiltrate reams of personal data. As soon as Equifax updated the certs on their decryption tools, they began to realize what happened.
On the heels of the Equifax breach, we are reminded of the importance of efficient decryption for effective threat detection. That’s more important than ever today; Ponemon Institute reports that 50% of all malware attacks utilize encryption.
During this webinar, we’ll talk about:
-How TLS/SSL encryption has become a threat vector
-Why decryption is essential to security and how to effectively pe
This whitepaper aims to dispel the fear and confusion surrounding encryption. It demonstrates how organizations can move forward with an encryption strategy in a manner that is simple, practical and achievable. So let’s start by setting the record straight on a few myths.
The perimeter continues to dissolve, and the definition of endpoint is evolving, according to results of the SANS 2016 Endpoint Security Survey, now in its third year.
As we might expect, 90% or more consider desktops, servers, routers, firewalls and printers to be endpoints that need to be protected. After that, respondents include other less-typical devices in their definition of endpoints that warrant protection: 71% include building security (access/ surveillance), 59% include employee-owned mobile devices and 40% consider industrial control systems as endpoints that need to be protected. Some respondents also consider POS devices, smart cars, emulated endpoints in the cloud and wearables as endpoints needing protection, highlighting the diversity of thinking among respondents.

Security breaches are all over the news, and it can be easy to think that all the enemies are outside your organization. But the harsh reality is that more than half of all attacks are caused by either malicious insiders or inadvertent actors.1 In other words, the attacks are instigated by people you’d be likely to trust. And the threats can result in significant financial or reputational losses.
Fear of data misuse has led to both general and industry-specific data-privacy regulations worldwide that many organizations now must meet, and it’s important to embrace their requirements. The role of data-holding organizations has increasingly shifted to being stewards of information, in particular in the United States and the European Union (EU). And failure to comply with regulations can mean not only reputational damage, but substantial fines and even jail time. Just meeting compliance mandates, though, may not help you actively spot and stop a data breach.
The headlines are ablaze with the latest stories of cyberattacks and data breaches. New malware and viruses are revealed nearly every day. The modern cyberthreat evolves on a daily basis, always seeming to stay one step ahead of our most capable defenses. Every time there is a cyberattack, government agencies gather massive amounts of data. To keep pace with the continuously evolving landscape of cyberthreats, agencies are increasingly turning toward applying advanced data analytics to look at attack data and try to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of the attacks. Applying modern data analytics can help derive some defensive value from the data gathered in the aftermath of an attack, and ideally avert or mitigate the damage from any future attacks.
There’s no getting around it. Passed in May 2016, the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the minimum standards of the Data Protection Directive, a 21-year-old system that allowed the 28 EU member states to set their own data privacy and security rules relating to the information of EU subjects. Under the earlier directive, the force and power of the laws varied across the continent. Not so starting May 25, 2018.
The right identity and access management solution can integrate with a healthcare provider’s EMR system to help keep sensitive medical data safe—and keep the organization compliant. It can provide valuable insights and visibility into accounts, access privileges and entitlements, across the wide range of users. By closing the gaps in identity protection, organizations can fight the threats of inadvertent misuse and intentional theft that may lead to security breaches.
New headlines provide ongoing evidence that IT Security teams are losing the battle against attackers, reinforcing the need to address the security of enterprise applications.This Analyst Insight reviews several practical steps you can take to get started now.
With the average cost of a data breach reaching $3.5 million, the pressure is intense to maintain the security and compliance of your data center. Discover how your organization may be at risk and how you can protect your data center from costly and highly visible breaches. Read the whitepaper today to put the trust back into your data center.
The attacks continue. The breaches occur. Penalties are assessed. While most universities manage to keep pace with the latest digital trends, they have been far less timely when it comes defending their networks and sensitive data against the latest targeted attacks and threats. This lack of protection is evident as recent headlines expose costly data breaches of student records and research, state and federal compliance violations, and a raft of other privacy and security issues that put students, alumni, staff, and the institutions themselves at considerable risk.
Banking systems are inherently distributed in multiple branch and ATM locations, as well as home banking over the internet. As the number of access points grows, so does the complexity of IT systems management. Systems need to be readily available and productive yet secure and protected from data-breach.

With Mac labs being a major presence on university campuses, many IT admins rely on imaging to ensure computers do not fall prey to viruses and costly data breaches, and to provide students with the education resources they need to be successful. The problem is imaging machines is a tedious and manual process, requiring lots of IT time.
In this white paper, we examine a better way to manage a Mac lab and explain how to:
• Leverage Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to automatically configure and enroll Mac devices into management
• Make apps and resources readily available for students to use, regardless which computer they choose
• Ensure students only have access to the resources relevant to them by binding machines to your school’s directory services system
With large quantities of student and faculty information on hand, complicated information systems and distributed environments spread across departments, higher education institutions are subject to breaches in the same fashion and with the same magnitude as large corporations.
But fear not, we're here to help. This white paper provides you with the confidence and know-how to combat the threat of security breaches and avoid the associated costs on your budget and sanity. After reading, you'll be able to:
• Identify common types of security breaches
• Work with faculty and staff to better secure your environment
• Prevent hacks and malicious software from reaching university systems
