In this white paper you will learn how data classification can be one of the most cost-effective methods for ensuring the value of data is maximized while still being used securely and how it can be a critical component to successfully govern information at an enterprise.
Firms face loss of Intellectual property (IP) and breaches of sensitive data as a result of account takeover (ATO). Risk-based authentication RBA plays an important role in the identity and access management (IAM) and risk mitigation of ATO across a variety of user populations (employee-facing [B2E] users, partners, clients, and consumer/citizen-facing users).
Estimating the cost of malicious cyberactivities is complicated. But the real issue is how it affects trade, technology, and economic competition. This in-depth report takes a look at the scope of the problem and what factors determine the real cost of cybercrime.
The greatest threat to enterprise data security comes from inside threats. Securing the enterprise requires an understanding of the data leak points, environment, people, and processes for managing sensitive information. This white paper explains how network-based and endpoint-based solutions can work together to provide the broadest protection available while ensuring scalability and manageability, and that employee productivity is not impacted.
Data breaches can carry very serious consequences, such as the revelation in February 2008 that that the Hannaford Brothers chain of supermarkets lost more than four million debit and credit card numbers to hackers. The bottom line is that organizations must implement Data Loss Prevention (DLP) systems to protect themselves against the growing array of threats they face from inadvertent and malicious data leaks from email, instant messaging and other systems.
In January of 2008, a random sample of online technical newsletter subscribers at midsize companies (100-5,000 employees) received an email invitation to participate in a survey about data protection solutions use at their organizations. The goal of the survey was to identify sources of and/or reasons for information security breaches, and to better understand how businesses are planning to protect themselves against data leaks. The following report presents top line results of the study.
Companies rely on knowledge assets, such as product formulas and customer databases. VPNs and network monitors can protect proprietary information from outsiders; but, they won't do much to prevent access by internal users. With the popularity of wireless networks, USB drives and other portable devices, it's all too easy for insiders to leak key data. This white paper explains how Trend Micro LeakProof 3.0 protects sensitive data at rest, in use, and in motion.
Encryption will help to protect data against unauthorized access by outsiders from lost or stolen devices such as laptops, thumb drives, and other removable media. But it does not protect against the insider threat-employees and contractors with authorized access to data who mistakenly or maliciously leak your most valuable assets.
Whether in search of better managers, higher pay or more recognition, people are changing careers faster than ever. The average tenure of wage and salary employees is 4.6 years. With more and more employees working exclusively with corporate data, higher attrition translates to higher levels of data loss.
Many employees feel entitled to the work they’ve created and ignore security policies, simply taking the data they want. While some of this pilfered data is innocuous or already in the public realm, some of it is classified, such as customer and employee information, payment data and intellectual property.
Code42 provides enterprise organizations with a way to view, manage and protect data from walking out the door. Download the white paper to learn how.
More than ever before, IT managers need to secure equipment and facilities against a variety of intrusive conditions that could cripple critical operations, resulting in system malfunctions, loss of data or intellectual property, damage to mission critical hardware or even theft of valuable physical assets. Such conditions often include environmental events, failure of air conditioning systems, power outages, and untoward human actions.
Leveraging cloud technology enables your enterprise to be more agile and competitive while significantly reducing costs. However, there are risks associated with these benefits. Getting new capabilities quickly is worth far less if it means exposing vulnerabilities that result in regulatory compliance violations and fees, loss of intellectual property (IP), loss of customer data, or damage to your reputation, brand, and future business.
