In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.
Could you do more for worker safety? Protective gear alone can't prevent arc flash injury. In fact, according to NFPA 70E, injuries sustained during an arc ?ash event would be reduced and survivable due to arc-rated PPE. Complying with the safe work practices required by NFPA 70E and implementing arc flash mitigation strategies through engineering controls will enhance workplace safety for employees and lower financial risk for your company. Read the white paper, "Mitigating Arc Flash Hazards", for more information.

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.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
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.
C’est l’un des changements majeurs de ces 20 dernières années au niveau de la protection de la vie privée dans le domaine numérique. Le Règlement général de l’UE sur la protection des données (RGPD) introduira, en mai 2018, des amendes d’un montant pouvant atteindre jusqu’à 20 millions d’euros en cas de non-conformité.
Depuis plus de vingt ans, les entreprises doivent se conformer à différentes directives et réglementations en matière de protection des données. Le Règlement général sur la protection des données (RGPD ou GDPR en anglais), qui reprend l’ensemble des législations existantes de la Commission européenne en matière de protection des données, a toutefois pour but de renforcer et d’harmoniser ces différentes réglementations pour les citoyens européens. Les principaux objectifs du RGPD sont de redonner aux citoyens un contrôle sur leurs données personnelles et de simplifier le cadre réglementaire pour les entreprises internationales. Pour les organisations déjà conformes à la Directive 95/46/CE, quels sont les critères technologiques à remplir pour garantir la conformité au RGPD ?
Ce document présente les résultats d’une enquête commandée par CA Technologies en vue de comprendre la situation des entreprises face aux exigences imposées par le RGPD. Ce dernier ayant de vastes implications concernant le type de données pouvant être utilisées dans les environnements autres que de production, CA Technologies souhaitait avant tout comprendre comment les entreprises envisageaient de se mettre en conformité avec le RGPD et quels sont les processus et technologies nécessaires pour y parvenir.

La compliance con il GDPR può essere ottenuta attraverso una combinazione di persone, processi e tecnologia. Questo documento illustra soluzioni che possano aiutare le aziende nel loro percorso verso la compliance con il GDPR. Ma è possibile estendere la protezione e rafforzare ulteriormente i controlli di sicurezza attraverso l'autenticazione forte e del rischio o la workload automation, per automatizzare l'elaborazione dei dati personali, facilitando il rispetto del GDPR e di normative analoghe. Le normative tendono a stabilire i requisiti minimi richiesti ma, nell'application economy, le aziende aperte devono garantire la due diligence per proteggere una delle risorse più importanti e critiche: le informazioni private dei clienti.
Tenuto conto del fatto che la GDPR è stato annunciato formalmente solo di recente, si evidenzia un buon livello di consapevolezza tra i partecipanti. Una volta informati sul regolamento, l'88% degli intervistati ha dichiarato che la propria azienda deve affrontare difficoltà tecnologiche per la compliance alla GDPR. Il percorso verso la compliance è percepito come molto laborioso.
Oltre il 90% delle aziende ritiene che il GDPR influenzerà le proprie modalità di raccolta, utilizzo ed elaborazione di dati personali.
È uno dei cambiamenti più rivoluzionari apportati al panorama della privacy digitale negli ultimi vent'anni e, nel mese di maggio 2018, il GDPR dell'Unione europea introdurrà sanzioni fino a 20 milioni di euro in caso di mancata compliance.

A big part of GDPR compliance will focus on how data is collected going forward. But a substantial emphasis will fall on the data businesses already hold. With many mainframes containing generations-old data, a manual data audit is completely unrealistic. That’s where CA comes in. CA Data Content Discovery enables organizations to find, classify and protect mission essential mainframe data—three valuable steps toward achieving GDPR compliance.
In this paper, you will find the results of a survey commissioned by CA Technologies to understand the readiness of organizations to meet the compliance needs of the GDPR. Given the GDPR is set to have wide-ranging implications for the type of data that can be used in non-production environments, CA Technologies wanted in particular to understand how companies are planning for the GDPR and what processes and technology is needed to help them.
Financial institutions seeking to attract new customers and revenue channels are expanding into digital services, real-time payments and global transactions. However, with every new service, criminals are developing innovative ways to infiltrate financial systems, and older technologies that mitigate fraud no longer work as effectively.
So how can financial institutions respond to this growing threat?
Fortunately, more advanced technologies hold great potential for real-time financial crime mitigation. Learn about five current and emerging technologies that could impact money laundering and fraud mitigation, including artificial intelligence/machine learning, blockchain, biometrics, predictive analytics (hybrid model) and APIs.
