Estimating the cost of malicious cyberactivities is complicated. But the real issue is how it affects trade, technology, and economic competition. This in-depth report takes a look at the scope of the problem and what factors determine the real cost of cybercrime.
Spreadsheets have become one of the most prevalent software applications used by businesses. They are used for everything from simple calculations to impromptu databases. While inherently useful, spreadsheets are frequently used for tasks in which they are ill-suited. In fact, too many companies overlook the importance of accurate fixed asset tracking and rely on spreadsheets to track value, depreciation, and tax calculations. Unwittingly, this results in the direct loss of money and time.

There are five essential steps to protecting data and
applications from the most common causes of data loss and
downtime. IT pros who follow these steps can feel confident
in their long-term organizational plan. Read this expert
guide from Ben Maas, an independent consultant and system
architect who has guided many companies through backup
and disaster recovery (BDR) deployments.
Data loss remains a serious issue , and data loss prevention is an important tool for companies to reduce the risk of a breach. The Ponemon Institute conducted a global survey of 1,000 IT decision makers, to develop benchmarks for data loss prevention incidents, visibility, and maturity.
The widespread adoption of cloud services has resulted in sensitive data assets being stored in cloud services. This solution brief takes a deep dive of McAfee’s unified approach to data security that protects both on premise and cloud-resident data from loss and to meet and maintain compliance
There are many expensive, complex technologies that promise high availability for SQL. Fortunately there are also simple, automated ways to get the highest levels of protection. The following five secrets to affordable SQL availability will help you to implement a SQL environment with little or no downtime, zero data loss, and no added IT complexity.
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.
Data breaches can carry very serious consequences, such as the revelation in February 2008 that that the Hannaford Brothers chain of supermarkets lost more than four million debit and credit card numbers to hackers. The bottom line is that organizations must implement Data Loss Prevention (DLP) systems to protect themselves against the growing array of threats they face from inadvertent and malicious data leaks from email, instant messaging and other systems.
In January of 2008, a random sample of online technical newsletter subscribers at midsize companies (100-5,000 employees) received an email invitation to participate in a survey about data protection solutions use at their organizations. The goal of the survey was to identify sources of and/or reasons for information security breaches, and to better understand how businesses are planning to protect themselves against data leaks. The following report presents top line results of the study.
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.

Webroot commissioned a study to gauge the prevalence of web-borne attacks, their consequences, and how IT pros are responding. Among the results, the vast majority of companies surveyed experienced one or more types of web-borne attacks in 2012. The survey report also includes recommendations—such as deploying a secure web gateway—for responding to this new threat environment. Key findings include:
• 8 in10 companies experienced web-borne attacks in 2012
• The majority of respondents reported significant impacts such as increased help desk time, reduced employee productivity and disruption of business activities
• Secure web gateways are a critical component of an effective defense against web-borne threats
Running multiple data centers can be costly and complex. While using shared WAN links is a viable option for cutting costs, many organizations would rather incur the additional expense of private lines than sacrifice performance.
This resource details the challenges of sharing WAN links and explores how WAN optimization – which employs a set of technologies to improve the bandwidth, latency, and loss characteristics of WAN links – can help you achieve the private line performance you need without the high price tag.

The implications of data loss are significant. Organizations that ignore the law affecting collaboration and information sharing are at serious risk of litigation, fines and brand damage. The paradigm shift from organizationally-defined to user-defined information governance is making it that much more difficult to maintain control of business activity and data.
This informative white paper by legal firm Field Fisher Waterhouse evaluates the legal risks of uncontrolled collaboration and information sharing and what to do about them, while providing in-depth insights into:
• Landmark incidents that have influenced data protection laws
• How to navigate different jurisdictional privacy frameworks
• Top 4 types of legal risk to protect against
• Top 5 recommendations for implementing good governance

Downtime happens and often at the worst time possible. Organizations experiencing downtime face direct and indirect costs from the loss of critical systems. This whitepaper discusses a Globalscape survey of 283 IT professionals and end users revealing the frequency of unplanned downtime, the effects on organizations, including average costs, and what IT administrators can do to minimize core system failure.
