Thousands of federal employees are issued mobile devices every year to carry out their agency’s mission. The government has strict security standards for such devices, but a new poll by Government Business Council (GBC) suggests that employee perceptions may be at odds with organizational priorities regarding security of these mobile devices.

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
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

Reasonable, common-sense security standards are becoming law in many regions of the world. In Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), enacted in April 2016, will become fully applicable on May 25, 2018. GDPR will bring the European Union (EU) under one comprehensive and harmonised legal system for data protection and privacy. The monetary penalties and reputational damage of noncompliance with GDPR are substantial – the maximum fines are the greater of 20 million euros or 4% of the company’s worldwide revenue.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was first introduced in 2004 to increase controls over credit card holder data and to reduce the chances of credit card fraud. Validation is required annually and over the years, it has evolved with new revisions periodically. The latest one, version 3.2 came into force in April 2016. Until the end of January 2018, PCI DSS and Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA-DSS) are considered best practice to implement, and starting February 1, 2018, are considered a requirement.

When your cloud performs better, so does your business. IT is being challenged to react faster to growing customer demands. So to meet the requirements of their end users, IT organizations are increasingly turning to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) private clouds for their ability to swiftly deploy and scale IT infrastructure. But not just any OpenStack® cloud stands up to the demands of a production-scale environment or can meet your performance, scalability, and security standards. Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® OpenStack Platform does, and will help you gain a competitive advantage.

Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily. Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, particularly Graham, Leach, Bliley (GLBA), the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) and the Sarbanes Oxley Act (SOX). Today, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is also top-of-mind, as it regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the European Union, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents. For United States banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer prot
If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement: Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow. Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

To bolster consumer trust in the foundation of ecommerce before it was irreparably damaged, several CAs and browser vendors came together to establish a higher security approach based on common standards: Extended Validation SSL certificates.
EV SSL is universally supported by all desktop browsers and provides an EV trust indication. All mobile browsers support EV SSL and some provide an EV indication.
Extended Validation SSL certificates have the highest impact on consumers, reassuring them that the site they are visiting is legitimate through visual cues in un-modifiable parts of the browser interface “chrome.”
For example, the latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Apple Safari display the corporate name with a green background for sites protected by an Extended Validation SSL certificate.
