Disaster recovery (DR) and long-term retention of data, for security as well as regulatory compliance, can be very challenging for mid-sized organizations. Keeping a secondary site up for DR can get very expensive and dealing with tape can be slow and costly. As a result, many mid-sized organizations are looking to the efficiencies of the cloud, such as scale, elasticity, agility, and lower initial storage costs, to expand their data protection environments. Check out this easy-to-absorb infographic to learn how to achieve powerful, converged, easy to deploy and manage, cloud-ready data protection.

2017 and 2018 were not easy years to be a CIO or CISO, and 2019 isn’t showing any signs of being easier. With so many career-ending-level data breaches in 2017 (e.g., Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, to name a few) and with the stronger regulatory requirements worldwide, CIOs/CISOs have a corporate responsibility to rethink their approach to data security. Regulatory compliance aside, companies have a responsibility to their customers and shareholders to protect data, and minimize its exposure not only to external attackers but also to employees. The most common method of data breach in 2017 was a phishing email sent to a company’s internal employees (See 2017 Data Breach Investigation Report), This makes employees unwillingly complicit in the data breach. Over 80% of successful cyberattacks have a critical human element that enabled them. The average employee who opens the innocent-looking attachment or link, is unintentionally jeopardizing a company’s data. While there is no 100% protection, th

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.

Customers today are far more concerned about the contents and origin of a product than ever before. in such a scenario, granting them easy access to product information, via digital initiatives such as SmartLabel™, goes a long way in strengthening customer trust in a brand. But it also means expending several man-hours of effort processing unstructured data, with the possibility of human error.
Intelligent automation can help save effort and time, with virtually error-free results. A consumer products conglomerate wanted a smart solution to implement SmartLabel™ compliance. See how Infosys helped and the five key takeaways from the project.
Cloud investment continues to grow
over 20% annually as organizations are
looking for faster time to deployment,
scalability, reduced maintenance, and
lower cost. But there is one aspect
of cloud that consistently worries IT
and security professionals – how to
achieve high levels of security in the
cloud. As cloud adoption increases, the
fears of unauthorized access, stolen
identities, data and privacy loss, and
confidentiality and compliance issues
are rising right along with it.
This report has been produced by the

responding to the security threats in the
cloud and what tools and best practices
IT cybersecurity leaders are considering
in their move to the cloud.
It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase.
Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se
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

The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover
quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection
architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional
backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This
is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex,
and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for
today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation
Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have
implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for
companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as
ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have
highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

Moving major, business-supporting applications to the cloud can be a challenge for a variety of reasons. You may have concerns about the physical migration of data, as data loss or business disruption stemming from a migration issue would be a disaster for the business. Security is another typical concern, as a data breach of your most sensitive applications—like SAP or Oracle— could prove highly damaging. Akin to security, data sovereignty is an issue for many businesses. Stringent compliance laws in some jurisdictions are dictating data “residency”; and in the cloud, it is not always clear where the data is housed.
Among managed cloud service users, 68% state that using such services helps them to better manage resource allocation and make SAP and Oracle costs more predictable.

Passed on May 9, 2014, the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) legislation requires federal agencies to report all expenditures—grants, loans, and contracts—in order to provide American citizens and policy makers better visibility into federal spending. At first glance, new federal requirements— which are scheduled to go in effect May 2017—can seem like imposed obligations with unknown benefits to the implementers. However, wise agencies and early adopters recognize how to transform this new compliance obligation into an opportunity to advance their federal agency by becoming more data driven. The Federal Government maintains vast amounts of data, and the DATA Act establishes data standards and sharing protocols that will help agencies exploit the benefits of data mining and analytics.
