Adversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular,
are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to
“go on the hunt.”
Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on
the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave
behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking
with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able t
There’s an alarming digital divide within many companies. Marketers are developing nimble software to give customers an engaging, personalized experience, while IT departments remain focused on the legacy infrastructure. The front and back ends aren’t working together, resulting in appealing websites and apps that don’t quite deliver.
We’ve arrived at this misalignment for understandable reasons. Previously, most chief information officers (CIOs) were hired to digitize and bring order to companies’ internal systems and processes. They saw websites as marketing channels and were happy to let chief marketing officers (CMOs) oversee that province of technology. They had, and still have, plenty to do just to keep internal operations running smoothly. Marketers soon got into the habit of developing not just content, but also software programs to better reach and transact with customers. But now that websites and apps are becoming cornerstones of the business, the stakes are too high to al
The positive impact of most
cost-cutting efforts is short-lived,
as individuals revert to past
behaviors and spending habits.
As normalcy returns, so can costs
and head count.
How do you keep the spirit alive?
How do you make cost
consciousness an organizational
capability and a shared mind-set,
rather than a bunch of rules that
are resented and resisted?
Look to the following strategic,
operational, organizational, and
cultural levers to help you
sustain the change.

Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) offers an integrated, comprehensive approach to endpoint security. Continuous analysis and telemetry features keep its finger on the pulse of network anomalies, and all suspicious activity is investigated. Contextual reporting highlights trends for administers, helping them reassess network architecture to close vulnerable points of entry. Also important is its flexible deployment, which makes it simple for any organization to tailor its endpoint security.
Analysts and industry experts agree: Digital disruption in manufacturing is on the horizon. Technologies like the Internet of Things, dynamic enterprise management, global supply chain visibility, and machine learning are already changing the way manufacturers produce goods and interact with customers. Further changes will continue to intensify issues and reveal opportunities.
En 2015, la mayoría de los fabricantes obtuvieron unos modestos niveles de rentabilidad debido a los bajos precios de los productos básicos y a la inflación salarial. Este entorno dio lugar a que se empezara a considerar el rol que las nuevas tecnologías ”disruptivas” podrían tener en las empresas manufactureras y posibles estrategias de inversión.
El objetivo de las operaciones de un almacén es dar una respuesta perfecta los pedidos: entregar exactamente lo que un cliente pide, a tiempo y con una eficiencia óptima. El módulo de almacenes de una solución de planificación de recursos empresariales (ERP – Enterprise Resources Management) puede ayudar a los almacenes más pequeños. Pero los módulos de gestión de almacenes de los ERP tienen limitaciones y, en el caso de empresas con operaciones más complejas, puede ser más inteligente optar por las capacidades adicionales de un sistema de gestión de almacenes avanzado (WMS, Warehouse Management System).
Como responsable de ventas y operaciones, usted tiene importantes responsabilidades, tales como establecer prioridades, planificar e implementar estrategias de la cadena de suministro, impulsar mejoras y, al mismo tiempo, adaptarse rápidamente a los requisitos cambiantes del mercado y de los clientes, y ajustar esos cambios en la demanda y en la oferta, y todo sin olvidar los resultados financieros.
Las modificaciones suelen crear polémica entre muchos profesionales del sector informático de la fabricación. El término "estándar" también tiene connotaciones muy diversas, ya que se suele asociar con las antiguas soluciones genéricas para empresas que ofrecían funcionalidades rudimentarias con el pretexto de que su aplicación era muy simple.
Por qué necesita un nuevo ERP: identificar los agentes impulsores de su negocio.
En estos tiempos, disponer de un ERP es una necesidad, no un lujo. Usted precisa de un sistema que le ayude en las operaciones y gestión de su negocio, ¿pero qué más necesita que haga?
With an estimated 500,000 'Internet of Things' devices using default security credentials it's little wonder that the recent Mirai botnet's DDoS attack was able to cause such widespread disruption. But it isn't just the average home-user that's at risk. Organizations like yours are being targeted with bespoke malware in order to compromise your network and add your servers and devices to malicious botnets.
This paper explains why these attacks are so successful, how a typical infection takes place and what security systems your organization should have in place to defend against botnet proliferation.
Ransomware threats like Cryptowall, TeslaCrypt, and Locky are on the rise, targeting organizations of all sizes. This paper explains how these attacks work, and why a large number of new infections continue to surface despite existing protective measures. It also provides practical short- and long-term steps that organizations should take to protect against them.
