Whether your company has been selling online for 20 minutes or 20 years, you are
undoubtedly familiar with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). It
requires merchants to create security management policies and procedures for safeguarding
customers’ payment data.
Originally created by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express in 2004, the PCI DSS
has evolved over the years to ensure online sellers have the systems and processes in place
to prevent a data breach.

What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
can see what’s on the horizon. Many clues are out there—and obvious.
For years, Cisco has been warning defenders about escalating cybercriminal activity around the globe.
In this, our latest annual cybersecurity report, we present data and analysis from Cisco threat researchers and several of our technology partners about attacker behavior observed over the past 12 to 18 months.

Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated.
Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their
enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative.
The purpose of this paper is to assess the switching requirements for next-generation campus networks incorporating wired switches, wireless LANs and WAN routers in an intuitive, intent-based network supporting cloud, mobility, IoT and digitization, with pervasive security.

Technology is transforming how we do our jobs, and employees expect the business to accommodate
their work habits.
› Companies must identify roles and profiles and support their needs. Not every employee will
require the same devices to get their jobs done efficiently and effectively. It is paramount for
organizations to seek out specific devices to enable different worker personas.
› IT must become a trusted partner to keep security top of mind. Employees showed a lack of trust
toward IT when facing an issue with their device or ecosystem. It is imperative for IT to become part of
the solution and not the problem; otherwise, workers will find ways to go around security policies and
fix problems on their own, putting the firm at even more risk.
› Employees require a more complete ecosystem. Employees need not only devices to get their jobs
done effectively but an entire ecosystem as well. Without this, businesses will fall further behind in a
fiercely competitive market and lose employ

Multi-Cloud, hybrid strategies add complexity
Nearly 60% of businesses say they're moving toward hybrid IT enviornments that integrate on-premises systems and public cloud resources and enable workloads to be pleaced according to performance, security and dependency requirements. Identifying the best execution venue is a key cloud hurdle.
If you’re dealing with the high cost and complexities of
delivering reliable wide area connectivity over traditional
carrier-based networks, you’re probably considering
some form of software-defined wide area networking
(SD-WAN). With the variety of constraints that you face,
selecting the right SD-WAN solution for your enterprise
may require a few compromises. Security, however,
should not be one of them.
There are various models for combining SD-WAN and
network security, but only one that can truly be called
“secure SD-WAN.” Fortinet, the most trusted name

The cloud — at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. Now it is simply accepted as an efficient way to get business done.
Most of today’s IT security was built to protect a well-defined network infrastructure, but that is yesterday’s architecture. When users and assets move outside the network perimeter where the traditional security stack can no longer protect them, your enterprise is exposed to an entirely new set of risks. And with more apps and sensitive data living in the cloud or on mobile devices, gaps emerge that leave organizations susceptible to attacks.
Read this flipbook to see how you can take your security to new heights. We'll explain the challenges driving the shift in the market and how you can take advantage of these changes and improve security for your organization.
“Does Cisco Umbrella block ransomware?”
This is one of the most common questions that we hear from customers. In reality, the answer for any security provider — including Cisco — is seldom an absolute “yes” or “no.” It really depends on how each variant arrives onto your systems, as well as its order of operations for encrypting data for ransom.
However, with Cisco you can significantly reduce the number of ransomware infections across your organization.
Your users, especially when working outside of the office, no longer need to always connect to the corporate network to get work done. They often connect directly to SaaS apps. And, let’s face it, employees also don’t turn on the VPN if they’re using their work laptop for personal use — which means they’re left with very little security protection.
Plus, many organizations are now using direct internet connections at branch offices, which means employees and guest users don’t get the protection of your traditional security stack. Not only are more offices connecting directly to the internet — it’s estimated that 70% of branch offices already have some direct internet access — but attackers recognize these weak points in their targets and have started exploiting them more.
To solve these new challenges, security controls must also shift to the cloud. This in-depth white paper describes how security must evolve to protect users anywhere they access the internet.
Why Cisco Umbrella is the simplest decision you can make to improve your company’s security.
You have to make some serious security decisions when you’re an IT leader. That’s because both the volume and sophistication of attacks are intensifying relentlessly — and it’s clear that conventional defenses alone are no longer adequate. More efective blocking of attackers is particularly important because under-the-radar attacks are wreaking havoc on enterprises that rely on antivirus products, frewalls, and sandboxing alone.
A mere 30 minutes from now, any business can be more secure than it was before. That’s the simple reality of DNS-layer security.

The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet most enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints.
Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile feet is ineffective.
Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile specifc security. To encourage this evolution, Lookout developed the Mobile Risk Matrix. Its purpose is to help security organizations understand the spectrum of risk on mobile devices and to provide data that demonstrates the prevalence of mobile risk.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has arrived. Every company doing business with
European customers — regardless of location — must make considerable governance, people, process,
and technology changes to comply with the new rules. While companies have made progress, more work
remains. To succeed, they must tackle key challenges, including data identification, mapping, and access
management. Despite the work ahead, forward-looking businesses understand GDPR is an opportunity.
This is a transformation for a data-savvy world, with the potential to yield enhanced customer and
business benefits. Investment in solutions with data privacy, security, and compliance offerings that can
protect data no matter where it’s stored — on-premises and in the cloud — can ease companies along
their readiness journeys and help them achieve and sustain compliance from May 25, 2018, and onward
Trust can be viewed as a key factor amongst clients and service providers
working together towards preparing for readiness with the EU General
Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These stringent regulations come into
force in May 2018 to ensure that personal data is processed adhering to strict
privacy and security requirements.
