Before you transform your business with mobility services, you need to consider both the management and security challenges you’ll face from the combination of mobile devices and cloud-based apps.
In this IDC report, you’ll examine enterprise mobility management technology—offered through solutions such as the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite—and how it helps manage the security risks of your mobility strategy.
Learn about these critical benefits:
• Provisioning and configuration devices and users—across platforms
• Ensuring only authorized users access data with identity system integration
• Ensuring only compliant devices access the corporate network through conditional access policies
• Allowing mobile applications to deploy in a more secure, streamline manner with enterprise app stores
• Providing security for data at rest, within workflows or over wireless networks, using granular policies around applications
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.
As the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe prepare for Brexit (Britain’s exit from the European Union), information security experts are left wondering what this would mean to the security and risk management processes that have been put in place in the past and how they need to adjust to the emerging reality. This document discusses the impact of Brexit on privileged access management and what information security professionals may consider as immediate solutions to mitigate risks.
Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.
As the pressures of digital disruption force companies to either transform or die, companies in Asia’s BFSI sector are rushing to integrate cutting-edge technologies and roll-out innovative new services to their customers.
Fortunately, thanks to rapidly advancing technologies, developments in the regulatory landscape and the initiative of leading BFSI organisations, we are seeing incredible examples of innovation within the sector on a monthly, if not weekly, basis.
The digital economy is transforming the financial services sector. The pace of innovation is accelerating, customers have higher expectations than ever, and new competitors are emerging from nontraditional markets. At the same time, financial services has long been a favorite target of cyber attackers, and despite firms’ best efforts, cybersecurity threats are rising and attacks are more successful than ever. Financial services firms need a more effective, adaptable approach to detecting and stopping cyberthreats.
Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today.
OpenLab is a centre of innovation provided by Juniper, for business leaders who want to build network-integrated software applications and solutions quickly and securely. This is done by offering hands-on and cloud-based access to Juniper and third-party solutions including SDN sandboxes and NFV interoperability testing.
The digital, connected world is fundamentally changing the dynamics of the financial services industry. Consumers expect anytime and anywhere access with a customer experience commensurate with the Internet world, while fintech start-ups disrupt established value chains, driving a need to deliver faster innovation. This is creating tremendous pressure on the network, with escalating demands for performance and agility, while cost control and compliance imperatives remain as dominant as ever. This paper looks at optimal strategies for CIOs and CTOs, exploring how the future network needs to evolve to both drive operational effectiveness and enable business change, while assessing key investment and strategic considerations for equipping the network for the digital financial institution.
Gartner’s Continuous Delivery Automation Magic Quadrant (MQ) analyzes the current market solutions and their effectiveness in responding to the demands of the modern business. The MQ is created on a tool’s ‘ability to execute’ and its ‘completeness of vision.’
When assessing CA Continuous Delivery Automation, Gartner highlights its ability to ‘provide scalability, resilience, security and enterprise management connectivity.’ The analysis also goes much deeper to cover the strengths, weaknesses and various nuances of all the automation products on the market.
The Internet of Things (IoT) unleashes valuable business insights through data that’s gathered at every level of a retail organization. With IoT and data analytics, retailers now have the capability to gather insight into customer behavior, offer more personalized experiences, achieve better inventory accuracy, create greater supply chain efficiencies, and so much more. But with data comes great risk. A recent report by security firm Thales and 451 Research found that 43 percent of retailers have experienced a data breach in the past year, with a third reporting more than one breach.1

Cybercriminals can be goal-driven and patient, and they often have a singular focus, plenty of time and access to vast, modern technical resources. Both organized and forum-based criminals are working constantly to find innovative and efficient ways to steal information and money with the lowest risk to their personal freedom. If we wish to stay “one step ahead” of the threats detailed in this report, awareness of online criminal threats, techniques and markets is our best defense.
Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.

Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
Digital transformation is forcing businesses to rethink how collaboration and process occurs across their extended enterprise, blurring the definitions of “back office” and “front office.” It’s also making it increasingly important to get more value out of their content, while also addressing modern security and regulatory requirements.
Although legacy enterprise content management systems helped manage the most sensitive content, they were never designed to accommodate the new mobile, highly agile business processes of the digital age.
A new strategy is needed.
